Missionary Mishap: Preach to Muslims About Jesus the Tasteless

I follow an Apologetic Christian Kindle Deals Page on Facebook, and I usually purchase the books they have on discount. Imagine my surprise when they finally posted a book about preaching to Muslims. “Facing Islam, Engaging Muslims“, by Allen Pritzlaff.

While browsing the book information, I came across quite a surprise!

I imagine that this person who examined Islamic doctrine, the Seerah an Nabawiyyah, the Hadeeth Corpus and the Qur’aan would know that we refer to Jesus as the Messiah, al Maseeh (مسيح). Instead, he writes that we need to know God through Isa al Masikh – مسيخ. Masikh (otherwise transliterated as Maseekh) translates to, “tasteless”. In other words, his book quite literally insults, denigrates Jesus, referring to him as Jesus the Tasteless. Took me quite by a surprise. I’d really like to see the author’s face when he realises he gets one of the most basic things about Islam and Jesus wrong, in a book titled about Islam and Jesus. A bit funny, a bit embarrassing and a bit ironic, what more could we ask for?

Missionary Mishap: Catholics at the time of King Solomon

Muslims (of the Ummah of Muhammad salallaahu ‘alayhi wa salam), Catholics at the time of King Solomon. I had to re-read this missionary’s comment a few times before I could have established that I was seeing correctly. I did correct him on his statements, but I doubt he’s going to change his mind. A bit shocking, weird and silly – but I’ve seen worse….

Conversation With an Angry Christian

Christtheway24 is angry at me, I’m a snake because I believe the New Testament is demonstrably and undeniably corrupted and unreliable. Here’s a sample of one of his angry rants on Paltalk. The audio is a bit raspy, but his speaking is loud and clear, the ticking in the background is my typing (via text) responding to him while he’s speaking. 

To bounce is to ban someone from the room (virtual meeting place), so after I gave my cordial response to him – he bounced me. 

and Allaah knows best.

 

Irony at its best, but atleast he’s honest…

Here’s a Christian telling me what’s wrong with understanding the Christian God:

3  Hinduism, Islam and Christianity Friendly discussion

What a nice guy, admitting the problem is his own set of beliefs. Don’t often find missionaries conceding this so quickly. Another missionary mishap to enjoy!

Update: Apparently, my friend Innocent is angry about this being posted, so he’d like me to provide the ‘context’ of our conversation, so here it is, directly from him:

Innocent Habonimana: If you want to be taken seriously represent my beliefs as they are , if you know them, and we will debate. If you cannot , I am not coming down to your level.

Ijaz Ahmad: Innocent Habonimana,

But you and I already know your beliefs.

God (YHWH) is one (being) in three persons (Father, Son HS). Do you agree or disagree? We’ll get to the hypostatic union later. Do you agree on this, or do you disagree?

For a multiple personality disorder you need one being, who has multiple and distinct personalities (for example, God who is one, has three personalities, this fits the disorder).

Ijaz Ahmad : Innocent Habonimana, unless you want me to refer to the Creeds established by the Ecumenical Councils to give the understanding of God you desire? Because if you think I don’t understand your Graeco-Roman, Demi-God, you are quite mistaken. What was the last book you studied on the theology of your God? Let us know

Innocent Habonimana : You know the problem that you have is that in your mind you think of God in a human form!

Well, unfortunately, that made the situation worse for our friend, but that’s okay, he asked for me to post this.

and Allaah knows best.
