Well this is embarrassing. Pastor Samuel Green who specializes in “ministering to Muslims” ran into quite an awkward argument recently with a fellow but prominent London based Christian missionary. The argument revolves around Green’s lack of education when it comes to Islam, which has upset and embarrassed fellow Christians as Green prides himself on his “engaging with Islam”. Someone had to burst his bubble and it was not pretty:
We’d like to thank the Christian community for finally bringing to light what we all know about Samuel – he doesn’t know anything about Islam.
and God knows best.
Pastor Samuel Green has been caught openly lying in a quote on the textual study of the Qur’aan. Behnam Sadeghi in Arabica 57 as quoted by Samuel Green has said the following:
So Behnam Sadeghi is saying we have a “GENUINE ARCHETYPE” of the Qur’aanic text, breaking these terms down, we see:
1. Actually possessing the alleged or apparent attribute or character: gen
Not spurious or counterfeit; authentic. See Synonyms at authentic
and the other definition:
1. a perfect or typical specimen
2. an original model or pattern; prototype
So according to the scholar Pastor Green quotes, we have an GENUINE/ AUTHENTIC, ORIGINAL TEXT of the Qur’aan. Yet, Green is saying the clear opposite. Can someone who speaks the English language, inform Pastor Green of what the words, genuine, authentic and original mean?
I’m not sure how many Christians would be willing to agree with Pastor Samuel Green’s view that humans can perform actions which God has not willed into existence or permitted. In essence, the Pastor is teaching that human will, overpowers God’s will. Do Christians agree with the Pastor’s message that humans are greater than the Christian God?
If the creation of God, can overcome the will of their Creator, then as humans – we are more powerful than the weak Christian God. This is not a polemical claim, this is based on the doctrinal statements of Pastor Green.
and Allaah knows best.
