Missionary Mishap – Copying Bad Arguments

Everyone wants to be a debater. Today, all it takes is a keyboard and adding a title to one’s name. In this case we have a callow missionary by the name of Evangelist France Francis. He has previously boasted that he is a friend of Jonathan McLatchie (a quick perusal of Jonathan’s timeline indicates that ‘France’ comments often on his page). With that said, while Jonathan has accepted that he made an error with regard to his claim that nowhere does Allah say: ‘I am God, Worship Me’ in the Qur’an, his young missionary friend has yet to get this memo:

As can be seen, Br. Mustafa Sahin an up and coming Muslim apologist and debater, knocks France the Evangelist out of the park. His Qur’anic reference directly refutes the missionary:

Indeed, I am Allah. There is no deity except Me, so worship Me and establish prayer for My remembrance. –20:14.

It truly is amazing just how fast bad arguments can spread. Even when the missionary you allegedly learn from recants his position, missionaries still insist on using those bad arguments. It’s quite embarrassing to say the least.

Nabeel Qureishi Deemed Heretic by Christian Scholar

The former Qadiani, Nabeel Qureishi attempted to unceremoniously drag noted Christian scholar and theologian, Miroslav Volf into his response to the Wheaton College suspension of a Professor for promoting solidarity between Islam and Christianity.

Unfortunately for Nabeel, he earned the ire of Miroslav Volf, who deemed him a heretic for arguing that Jews worship a different God than that of Jesus’s. His argument is that according to the Bible, Jesus acknowledged that Jews worshiped ‘His Father’, despite denying his (Jesus’s) alleged divinity. As such, not only does this demonstrate Nabeel’s lack of education when it comes to his own theology, it indicates to the wider public that Nabeel is not serious about his faith and is clearly more interested in pandering to the lay-Christian audience that follows RZIM.

This is quite disappointing, but in some respect it is a sign that not only does Nabeel not understand Islam, despite trying to study Christianity, he still is unable to grasp its theological nuances to the extent according to one well noted Christian scholar, he holds heretical notions and beliefs.

Missionary Mishap: Jonathan McLatchie’s Honesty

People make mistakes, I’ve made mistakes, however if you accept your mistakes and take responsibility for them, you can make amends. There are some people though, where the issue of honesty is not so black and white. In this case, it quite literally is black, there’s no denying it. So, here we are again with another infamous Missionary Mishap! In August of 2015, Jonathan McLatchie unleashed a xenophobic tirade, describing Muslims in Europe as a cancer. At that point in time, he was unable to clear his name, since video evidence was widely available. He never apologized or recanted his xenophobic views. Recently, Jonathan once again unleashed another xenophobic tirade, denigrating Caucasian converts to Islam.

The Muslim community continues to forgive Jonathan for his xenophobic views, and we do not ascribe his extremism to his faith. We do not hold Christianity responsible for Jonathan’s views. However, Jonathan seems to have found himself in another controversy. In his video denigrating Caucasian converts to Islam, he erroneously claimed that Khalid Yasin, the African American convert to Islam, was a white (caucasian) man. After repeated attempts at correcting him, Jonathan insists that Khalid Yasin is a white man. He even went so far as to claim he met Khalid Yasin to prove that he was a white man. This incident is indicative of Jonathan’s inability to correct himself when wrong. Jonathan refuses to acknowledge that he made a mistake.

I’ve got news for Jonathan. Khalid Yasin is an African American man. He is not white, as is noted by the photo above. To assess Jonathan’s ability to correct himself, he was contacted via Twitter and he continued to affirm that he had not made a mistake, Khalid Yasin was a white man, and the proof was that Jonathan met him.

In response to that, I too also met Khalid Yasin several years ago when he visited Trinidad at the IBN TV8 studios. I can assure Jonathan that Mr. Yasin, is indeed, not a white man. As proof, I also offer any image or video of the man himself. No one in the Muslim community can make sense of Jonathan’s inability to correct himself in the face of obvious and glaring mistakes. Even when the issue is as simple as the difference between black and white, Jonathan is unable to be honest or correct himself. If he cannot be honest for such simple matters, should he be trusted when it comes to theology? The answer is clearly no.

Should Jonathan correct himself, I will edit this post to reflect this. However, that is as likely as it is for a camel to go through the eye of a needle.

Jonathan McLatchie Confuses Christians About the Trinity

In what can be described as completely embarrassing, Christians are once again cringing at Jonathan McLatchie’s views on the Trinity. On the anti-immigrant blog hosted by the previously institutionalized David Wood, Jonathan recently posted a video of himself ‘explaining the Trinity’. In the comment section, one Christian absolutely condemns McLatchie as making the Trinity, ‘as clear as mud’.

What makes it worse is that while Jonathan has been copy-pasting articles about Islam from Wood and Shamoun, and attempting to present them as his own research, the moment he touches on the subject of Christianity he finds himself being mocked and ridiculed by his fellow Christians (about his understanding of his own faith). It is thus, quite ironic that McLatchie in attempting to promote himself as a ‘Christian apologist’, but cannot even express or defend the Trinity, to the point that other Christians are ridiculing him for it. Peculiarly, Jonathan chose to ignore this criticism and to post other plagiarized articles from Wood and Shamoun, and failed to address this Christian’s criticism of his ignorance about Christianity.

This explains why he is focusing on Islam. Jonathan does not understand his own religion, and when it comes to Islam he is reduced to copying decades old arguments from Shamoun and Wood. He is unable to present his own ideas and research, he is left to plagiarise the works of others, and claim them as his own. This is a new low for Christian apologetics. It almost seems as if they are scraping the bottom of the barrel in some attempt to appease donors to Wood’s website. No new arguments, no new research, and the best they can do is to get an unqualified Christian xenophobe and polemicist to repost old articles while failing to get the Trinity right.

Scraping the bottom of the barrel indeed.

Missionary Mishap: The Need for Da’wah

In the age of information, can we truly allow ourselves to be misinformed? Our Christian friend Donna, has decided to come to us for answers. Yes, it’s true, she is misinformed but she is seeking answers. This is just one example of a growing need for Muslims to continue doing da’wah….

So who’d like to give her the good news that he isn’t the holy spirit?

and Allah knows best.
