Answering Islam - A Christian-Muslim dialog

  • Following the Star

    Have you ever wondered what was so special about the star that inspired the wise men (magi) to set out on a long journey in search of a newborn King? Several clues help us understand what motivated them. Muslims will be fascinated to discover that two of these clues involve Gentiles from regions east of Israel, which today are Islamic countries (Torah, Numbers 24:15-17; & Injil, Matthew 2:1-11) Also, Nabi Danyal (Daniel) grew up in Babylon, modern day Iraq/Iran where he presided over the council of wise men and astrologers under King Nebuchadnezzar. As a devote Jew, he would have known Balaam's prophecy about a star/scepter arising out of Israel and probably informed those under his leadership. Balaam's intriguing oracle of a royal star-sign became much clearer many years later when magi/astrologers from the east took the long journey following the special star to Bethlehem as recorded in the Injil (Luke 2:1-11).
  • “Anti-hate” protests point the way to peace

    Two "anti-Islam" rallies, barely one month apart, recently took place in London Ontario where there are many Muslims. Both rallies sparked large counter-protests, raising fear of worsening prejudice and Islamophobia. These clashes which sparked violence, reflect polarizing trends worldwide. Who will stand in the widening gap and make peace? Jesus Christ is revered by Christians and Muslims as an exceptional peace-maker. Jesus showed skill as a peacemaker when he mediated between two deeply divided monotheistic communities Samaritans and their Jewish cousins. In the 1st century these feuding cousins were merely a fraction of the total world population. But today, Christians and Muslims make up 2/3rds of the world.
  • Beloved Egypt Awake!

    Egyptian’s are a wonderful, hospitable, people. Yet this beloved country, once the world’s superpower, faces collapse and disaster. The goodness in its people’s hearts should be rewarded with a stable life, reliable government, and freedom. Instead their society continues to rot and is now approaching catastrophe. To the east, west, and south, Islamic countries are collapsing or in crisis, primarily due to the rise of Islam. The more Islamic a country becomes, the greater its decay and ruin.
  • Islam Hates You

    Since 9/11 Westerners have wondered, “why do they hate us?” Even casual observers see that there exists a hatred, a rage, against non-Muslim countries, particularly Western ones. Is it true that Islam hates us? If so, why? Or does Islam love non-Muslims? Or is the answer somewhere in between? This article explores Islamic doctrine, and the life of Muhammad, to identify real Islam’s position towards non-Muslims.
