As most would know, at the end of my discussion with James on his Dividing Line program, he offered me a copy of his book, “The Forgotten Trinity”. After emailing him (numerous times) and failing to receive a single response, I have bought the book myself. It would seem that James was very happy to deceive his audience by pretending to send me a copy of his book, his attempt at extending a hand towards interfaith dialogue was nothing more than a charade to boost his ego.
I have already read one chapter of the book provided by a colleague from Beirut, Lebanon. Fortunately, I’ve also had the pleasure of reading another book on explaining the Trinity, “What is the Trinity“, by RC Sproul. It’s free at the moment, so go grab the Kindle version! In comparing the two books, James’ diatribe is overtly verbose – this generally happens when a person struggles to explain the topic under discussion. Admittedly, the Trinity is a problematic theological invention, therefore we should expect it to be difficult to explain. I’ve written on RC Sproul’s book here. He happens to be excellent at explaining the development and creation of the Trinity, he states:
“The concept of the Trinity has emerged as a touchstone of truth, a non-negotiable article of Christian orthodoxy. However, it has been a source of controversy throughout church history, and there remains much confusion about it to this day, with many people misunderstanding it in very serious ways.”
This is direct and straight to the point. We Muslims agree that it’s a controversial belief, that Christians remain confused about it and that Christians misunderstand the central belief of Christian theology in very serious ways. It’s a great book for Muslims willing to see how Christians understand and misunderstand the Trinity, it’s a very candid book that can help us give da’wah to Christians from a more studied position.
I’d like to thank James White for demonstrating that he deals in bad faith, cannot hold to his word and unfortunately, he saw it appropriate to lie to his congregation without any hesitation. A fine example of Christian scholarship.
and God knows best.
Recently, it came to my attention that Sam Shamoun issued these public statements about Dr. Ally:
To quote him, “Ally is nothing more than a charlatan masquerading as a peaceful, loving Muslim apologist“, a charlatan is hereby defined according to Webster’s College Dictionary as, “a person who pretends to special knowledge or skill that he or she does not possess; quack; fraud.” Let’s just do a quick comparison:
Dr. Shabir Ally:
- B.A. in Religious Studies from Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario, with a specialization in Biblical Literature.
- M.A. in Religious Studies from the University of Toronto with a specialization in Quranic Exegesis.
- Doctorate in Quranic Exegesis from the University of Toronto.
- Has a blog.
- He’s an immigrant who is against migrants.
I’m not sure, but given the comparison of academic qualifications – it would seem that Dr. Shabir is a highly qualified individual with degrees from internationally respected tertiary educational institutions, while Sam has nothing to his name. It would seem therefore, that the charlatan is Sam Shamoun himself. It isn’t surprising to see Sam Shamoun attacking Dr. Shabir, after all, Sam who has no academic qualifications would naturally be jealous of a person who supersedes him significantly. I call upon Sam Shamoun to list his academic qualifications by any accredited tertiary institution to prove that he is not a charlatan and can match the qualifications of Dr. Shabir Ally.
He’s just an angry individual who cannot control his urges to insult others who simply are beyond his level of intelligence.
and God knows best.
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ,
Many people fail to realise that death due to apostasy is not something alien to Christianity, it is in fact, part and parcel of the Christian religion in itself. It is sad to see that many Christian missionaries and apologists fail to highlight the plight of Christian converts to Christianity. Recently, I attempted to have a discussion with Hazem Farraj, an Evangelical ‘ex-Muslim’. Sadly after reminding him that the Bible promotes the law of apostasy, he soon erupted with anger and blocked me. This is the message I sent to him:
Hazem Farraj, what is wrong with what the Shaykh has said, if he says what YHWH says?
“If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which [is] as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers; [Namely], of the gods of the people which [are] round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the [one] end of the earth even unto the [other] end of the earth; Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him: But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people. And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.” – Deuteronomy 13:6-10.
Jesus never abandoned the law of apostasy, for YHWH himself as declared it eternal:
“All your righteous laws are eternal.” – Psalm 119:60.
I find your hypocrisy to be quite disturbing. If you love God, why are you denying His words in the Bible?
After posting this, I casually mentioned that many Christians still commit honour killings due to apostasy, for which he deleted me before I could publish this bit of information on his wall:
“Christian farmer Ishaq Aziz’s 17-year-old daughter Nirmeen went missing on Valentine’s Day, fueling speculation that she has converted and will reappear with a Muslim husband once she turns 18.Aziz, 47, and his family are preparing for that day. They have sold some farmland to buy firearms, and Aziz explained matter-of-factly that Nirmeen and her husband will be killed first — “it is a question of honor” — and then the guns will turn against the groom’s family.”But we will happily take her back if she comes back with her faith intact,” he said. “Even if she is pregnant, a cousin will marry her,” he said, wiping a tear with the sleeve of his dark blue galabiya robe.” – The Associated Press.
Christians thrive on ‘argumentum ad baculum’, an argument based on the fear of something. They pretend that Islam is some fearful faith, yet they are silent when their own followers do the same. Just another Christian missionary ashamed of the Bible!
