Well, what can you say but fair play to James White for exposing the dishonesty of certain Christians in his book ‘What Every Christian Should Know About the Quran’. It’s also encouraging to notice that other Christians have rebuked these two hate preachers regarding their dishonest reading and hypocritical arguments – sadly one of the hate preachers reacted angrily to his fellow Christian’s rebuke.
I fear, the dishonest hate preachers who Nabeel Qureshi will not even defend, Sam Shamoun and David Wood, will continue with their online money making operations; receiving cash from gullible and hate-mongering supporters.
Whatever happened to the days of discernment where one could easily recognise the charlatan from somebody with scholarly authority? Whatever ever happened to those days? This is a problem of the internet, the lines between the amateur, the charlatan, the scholar and the downright dishonest have been blurred and people are taking advantage of this haze.
We all know the impact of dishonest Eastern Christians in the West (i.e. Ergun Caner, Walid Shoebat, Usama Dakdok etc.) who spout what they think their audience wants them to hear with a complete disregard for scholarship and accuracy yet what’s not so well documented is the manner in which a number of Western Christians readily offer dishonest servings to their followers and take the cash at the end of the day.
I’m glad we can use Dr James White to expose the dishonesty and duplicity of two Christian hate preachers here – I guess a Christian exposing other Christians makes a bigger statement than a Muslim doing such in the current climate. Just like when Ergun Caner’s lies were being exposed – a Muslim, Mohammad Khan of fake exMuslims was trundling along and exposing Ergun Caner pretty steadily but when James White clambered on the bandwagon there was a bigger impact as it was a Christian exposing the dishonesty of a co-religionist.
Let’s pray this important video has an impact in stimulating the Christian hate preachers, David Wood and Sam Shamoun into self reflection and ultimately a change of approach on their part – a turning away from hate preaching and misinformation.
James White Condemns Inconsistency, Dishonesty, Lack of Discernment and lack of scholarly approach – David Wood and Sam Shamoun watch out…
A discussion on the Quranic Verses mentioned in the video:
Don’t they and other Christians not see they are simply repelling people from their faith and their church? Don’t they not stop to think that a well known Christian saying is ‘the truth shall set you free’ yet they operate out of the boundary of truth? Don’t they know this?
It’s time for Christians like James White and others to regulate the dishonest amongst their ranks – regardless of whether they are Calvinists, Armenians or whatever. Folk such as Christian hate preachers make the dialogue between Muslims and Christians uneasy and much more difficult.
The truth should be valued. A better quality of dialogue can ensue between Muslims and Christians when Christian leaders (such as pastors, apologists and elders) decide they value the truth enough to weed out the dishonest amongst their ranks
No honest, sincere and decent man could defend the manners, actions and the arguments that these two hate preachers have been espousing over the years. When will fair minded folk within Christian communities speak out? I invite those who would consider themselves fair to speak up – Samuel Green, Nabeel Qureshi, James White, Tony Costa, Bassim Gorial, Mike Licona, Tony Santana, Anthony Rogers, Hogan Elijah Hagbard, Peter Lumpkins, Mary Jo Sharp, Melissa Cain Travis, Samar Goriel, Gary Habermas, C.L. Edwards etc.
Speak up for the truth. The truth is something that does set people free – free from the guilt of dishonesty.
Invitation to Islam
Jesus taught people to do the Will of God (according to
Mark 3:35) in order to become his brothers, mothers or sisters. A Muslim means
one who submits to the Will of God. Do you want to become a brother/sister of
Jesus? If yes, become a Muslim.
