I recently highlighted Dr James R White’s condemnation of dishonest Christian readers who allege the Quran teaches Allah is a “deceiver”. The ego of one of these critics spun out of control, rather than accepting the correction and rebuke from a Christian elder he flew off the handle calling Dr White all sorts of names. Folks in anti-Islam Christian apologetics, does truth not matter more than your egos?
This seems to be an ego thing. Sam Shamoun posts material from the likes of pastor Steven Anderson and Dr Mike Licona. Both of whom have said things which people use to argue against certain Christians. For instance pastor Steven Anderson has made statements which have been used to argue against certain Trinitarians and he has also made statements on the Bible’s view on women’s rights which many Westernised Christians will find alien. Mike Licona has made some interesting admissions too which blow a hole in the traditional idea of inerrancy and even suggest Paul of Tarsus (Sam Shamoun’s prophet) made a false prophecy
Now, Sam Shamoun reposts stuff from those characters and he does not call them “useful idiots”, “dhimmis” or “shallow and inept” in understanding. Why the discrepancy?
Perhaps it is because Dr White highlighted Sam Shamoun as somebody who is a dishonest reader – in the video clip on the post Sam even makes up his own translation of the Quran to argue for his wild-eyed assertions.
Sam, consistency is important. If you would look at the bigger picture you would see how you are leading Christians away from Biblical Christianity. You, along with folks like Jay Smith and David Wood. I don’t think Dr James White would argue with much of what I wrote.
