Are Muslim terrorists just extremists who twist the Koran to suit their own ends, or are they simply following the instructions of the Islamic god 'Allah' and its prophet 'Mohammad'? Do the Jews, Christians and Muslims in fact worship the same God? Is Islam a religion of peace? What does the Koran really say about Christians and Jews?
These are some of the questions that Christians should be asking themselves before they position themselves on either side of the Islam debate. Many people make broad bold statements for or against Islam, each with quotes or references from the Koran. Who do we believe?
Do not be ignorant of the facts. Know what Muslim scripture actually says and what that means in real world application.
After which, what do we do with that information. Do we march down the streets wrapped in the Australian flag, or start a 'Hug a Muslim' day? Should we be kissing Korans like a Pope or eloping to Syria to fight ISIS? After a rapid but thorough investigation into the Koran, we look at the Bible for instruction and guidance as to how we as Christians should respond to the complex issue.
“There are no Christians, as far as I know, blowing up buildings. I am not aware of any Christian suicide bombers. I am not aware of any major Christian denomination that believes the penalty for apostasy is death. I have mixed feelings about the decline of Christianity, in so far as Christianity might be a bulwark against something worse.” – Dawkins, Richard – Darwinist and apostle of atheism.
Maverick by nature and experienced in pastoral ministries, Simon D. Geddes has been both blessed and cursed with the calling to edify fellow Christians on some of the more vociferous issues seldom discussed in the nave.
Unafraid of public reaction, Simon’s debut book ‘Porn Kills’ tackled the incredibly subversive issue of pornography in a compelling yet pragmatic way: being both informative for leaders and counsellors, and compassionate to those suffering from the addiction.
Simon’s life mission as an Apostolic Christian family man, is to pursue a genuine commitment to disseminating the inviolable Word of God and outwardly displaying the unconditional love of the Lord Christ Jesus through personal contact with the aged, the impoverished and the imprisoned.
Following Professor Wayne Grudem’s biblical research style and Billy Graham's hard hitting interpretive style, Simon’s well researched and referenced writings leave readers informed, encouraged and better equipped to prevail in a meretricious world.
