Allah, Jinn, and Belief

One of several internal inconsistencies in the Qur'an concerns the subject of jinn, and particularly the way in which Allah dissuades these jinn from hearing the recitation of the Qur'an in heaven. Continue Reading...

Christians & Muslims: Do They Worship the Same God?

A common misconception among the uninformed is that Muslims worship the same God as Christians. Many well-meaning church leaders have been accused of saying this, among them Rick Warren and Brian Houston. Both have denied the charge, but both created quite a controversy around this issue.

Examining the Nature of Allah - Part 2

I wrote this initially as a message for the Jr. High School students at my local church. In California, students in the public school system begin learning about Islam as part of their history curriculum. The textbooks used most frequently in public schools tend to cast Islam in glowing terms,… Continue Reading...
