Islam: Fact Vs.Fiction – Acts 17 Lying again.

More Islamophobic LIES from “Christian Missionaries” [by Acts 17 David Wood]

Just when you thought “Christian” Fundamentalists were learning to be a tad more honest…

Right, we have already seen an overview of the history of Christian missionary dishonesty concerning Islam so it comes as no surprise to see some modern day “Christian ministries” peddling lies about Muslims.

The lies geared towards converting Muslims to Christianity are one thing but lies which have the potential to demonize Muslims and set Christians (and others) against Muslims endanger communities – especially Muslim minorities in the West.

Here we see an internet Christian ministry (David Wood of Acts 17) peddling the lie that Muslims are commanded to torture and kill Christians who FIX CHURCH ROOFS or WEAR CROSSES!!!

Now, the reasonable amongst you would pass this bloke off as misinformed at the very least – if not completely off his rocker. So why publicize this man’s lies? There are a number of reasons, here are three:

1. There are gullible folk out there who would believe such divisive lies simply because they trust “Christian evangelists” or are insincere in that they really want to believe such deceptions. This reinforces hatred and stereotypes, thus further endangering Muslims minorities

2. We need to make an example of Islamophobes – if they are peddling lies it is always nice to expose them as it makes other Islamophobes think twice – we help to nudge them to honesty and decency!

3. Lies can confuse folk so there needs to be a mopping up process.

Obvious LIES and Distortions

The Quranic Verse the Islamophobe speaks about (5:33 – see footnote 1) has nothing to do with church roofs or wearing crosses. This is an OBVIOUS LIE presented by Mr Wood of Acts 17 Apologetics.

The Verse was revealed concerning a group of people who had committed the heinous crime of murder and theft – severe highway robbery [2]

Commentaries are quoted in the comment section

This “missionary” is exposed in more ways than one

Not only do the commentaries tell us this chap is lying through his back teeth but also Islamic jurisprudence tells a similar story as it uses this Verse (5:33) as a guide to punish those who commit the crime of highway robbery [3]

Jurists may also use this verse as a guide with regards to punishing other serious crimes such as rape at gun or knife point [4]

Leaky roofs? More like leaky vessels of honesty!

I hope you can see we are talking about serious crimes which have the potential to cause fear and panic amongst communities. We are not talking about fixing leaky roofs – the missionary was simply advancing LIES!!!

So the experts (the commentators and jurists) show us this fella is telling tall tales – that’s to say he is making stuff up. How sad

As we have seen in the video, Muslim societal norms also show this dishonest man to be misleading us. [5]

The Holy Spirit

Christian evangelists claim to have the Holy Spirit dwelling within yet time and time again we see Christian evangelists embroiled in such outrageous episodes of misinformation such as the one above.

How do you seriously expect Muslims and other Non-Christians to believe you when your missionaries engage in lies? In this case the lies were Islamophobic and contained the potential to lead misguided folk to harass Muslim minorities in the West. Perhaps that was the design for the lie, I don’t know – ask the man who peddled the lie!

I call him to public apology and repentance

Christians PLEASE stop supporting the disingenuous and dishonest “Christian ministries”

May Allah guide us all. Ameen.

[1] The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom

[5] Not only that but Muslim societal norms militate against this man’s nonsense. In fact Muslims have even had the Pope visit wearing a CROSS – nobody tortured him. In the video I could have also shown further Muslim societal evidence. Mentioning the كنيسة القديس الياس دمشق, Saint Elias Church (Damascus-Syria) was sufficient as it was built in 1800 and has been twice renovated since but no tortured Christians could be found!




New Missionary Scandal: CODE OF QURAN PROVE Christ? (Video Below)


A newly found canard, it appears a Christina missionary (InvestigateIslam) has delved into desperation yet again and come up with a totally dishonest “mathematical” argument to prove Jesus to be the son of god through the Quran.


This missionary (see appendix 1) claims somebody else wrote the Quran (a man named Bahira, this claim is refuted in appendix 2 by IslamResponses), the missionary then proceeds to claim the Quran containing a code which proves Christianity. Bizarre!


He uses abjad numerals for coding. He looks at Alif-Laam-Raa  (ALR) and adds the letters add up to 231. (L=30, A=1, R=200). He then brings this Arabic expression of his Trinitarian faith:


الاب والابن اله واحد (Translated: the father and the son are one god)



He then claims this Arabic expression of his Christian faith adds up to 231 via Abjad numerals and then tries to make a link between the Quran and his Christian belief. HOWEVER, his Arabic expression only adds up to 179 so he is not exactly being the most factual/honest. It gets worse.


He then claims Alif-Laam-Raa (ALR) is included in these 5 Surahs 10, 11, 12, 13, 14.


He is wrong again as ALR is not in Surah 13.


He then multiplies 231 with 5 and gets 1155.


He then brings this Arabic sentence:


وَالْكَلِمَةُ صَارَ جَسَدًا وَحَلَّ بَيْنَنَا، وَرَأَيْنَا مَجْدَهُ،  لِوَحِيدٍ مِنَ الآبا


He immediately proceeds to claim this to be from the Gospel of John 1:14 (LIE). He also claims this new Arabic sentence equals 1155 in Abjad numerals.


It is untrue when he claims it to be John 1:14 as this is John 1:14 in Arabic:


وَالْكَلِمَةُ صَارَ جَسَدًا وَحَلَّ بَيْنَنَا، وَرَأَيْنَا مَجْدَهُ، مَجْدًا كَمَا لِوَحِيدٍ مِنَ الآبِ، مَمْلُوءًا نِعْمَةً وَحَقًّا


You can clearly see the missionary is lying as he missed a whole phrase (last 3 words out) and two middle words, after majdah. Thus the missionary deliberately made edits and cuts to his bible in order to hit the number 1155. However, despite ALL the word omission he still removes the second L (laam) from wahalla in order to make it fit his wacky idea of 1155. Sad, the man distorted and changed his own book in an attempt to impress and convert Muslims, along the way his knowledge was found wanting.  Is this what passes for preaching nowadays?


Appendix 1


Did a man named Bahira write the Quran? No (I plan to do an in-depth response but for now Insha’Allah IslamResponses comment on my channel will be sufficient information to show the ridiculous nature of such a claim):

 ,Buheira the monk was an old man when he met Prophet Muhammad(P) and the prophet was very young .
so why did the prophet wait till he become 40 years old?
the revelation of the Qur’ân continued for 23 years after the death of Buhira who met the prophet once. the Prophet(P) was receiving the revelation in different places and even while he was among his Companions. Also, he was answering direct questions raised later by the Jews in Madinah.

Video Footage of “Christian” Group Arrested at Arab Festival 2010

Nabeel Qureshi (ex Ahmadi, turned Christian preacher) and his mentor David Wood were shamefully arrested byt the Police. The POLICE in Dearborn saw these people causing trouble and Jailed them, rightly so.

an alleged eye witness account said: I was among many Christian groups that were at the festival, evangelizing Muslims. None of us had problems. We all saw David Wood and his video group trying to cause a scene.
They are trying to showboat, please stop believing them
