Sometime last year, I came across a young Christian apologetic (perhaps my age, he may be slightly older), challenging Muslims to debates. Here is Sam Shamoun advertising his debates:
Now, one would assume, that after his debate, he would be ready to do another, well, it turns out, Matt’s afraid of facing defeat in debates again. He had one other debate with Muhammad Qaari Aalam and was thoroughly defeated a second time, to the extent we had Christians distancing themselves from his antics. Facing a failing Christian apologetics career, coupled with two humiliating public defeats, Matt decided he would no longer debate Muslims. The following is a Facebook conversation, where he was presented with a challenge to debate me:
There we have my first challenge to him, this was his response:
There we have it. Another missionary put to rest. Matt is running away from challenges, claiming no Muslim can face him. I personally intervened and sent Matt Solomon a message not too long after:
Matt Solomon never replied. I don’t know if it was simply a discourteous gesture or if he didn’t want his cowardice being promoted. He publicly argues with Muslims, claims to have debated scholars and claims again that no Muslim can defeat him or his ally Zia ul Masih, unfortunately, his claims are false and he’s another psuedo-scholar, who due to his own arrogance and public humiliations, will never be able to debate a Muslim again. In this light, I’m extending my hand to Matt Solomon, if he ever feels as if he needs a Muslim to debate, he can easily find me and accept my challenge to debate, after all we can’t let his “scholarly” education at CRC Bible Institute and at the Trinity Biblical University go to waste.
