The Qur’an Dilemma

Quran Dilemma

As I travel and speak at various events, one of the most common requests I receive is regarding what books I recommend to give to Muslim friends or co-workers. Of course the first book I always recommend is a gift edition of the New Testament or the whole Bible. There is simply nothing more powerful than the living Word of God to awaken Muslims to the beauty and superiority of the true Jesus as opposed to the mythical Isa of Islam. But after the Bible, I now have a second book that I highly recommend. I recently obtained a copy of The Qur’an Dilemma. This creator of the book is a friend, a dear brother, and a former Salafi Muslim. As such, he has created a book that is respectful and culturally sensitive to Muslims. This book is a thorough expose of the innumerable and insurmountable problems with the Qur’an. If any Muslim is open to rationally consider this volume, they will be forced to acknowledge that the Qur’an is hopelessly flawed and simply cannot be inspired by God. This powerful book is available in both English and Arabic. They are both full color, hard cover books, beautifully created. They are available through the website . I recommend that you pick up a few copies of both Arabic and English and have them available to share.

    Quite a coup there having that specific web address for the book! Smart and surprising it hasn’t been taken or continued to be used by a pro-Islamic individual or group.

    It’s been said that no one has been argued into the Kingdom of God, and frankly as long as love is not a handmaiden to rhetoric, there is hope.

    In other words, how the greatest news of all time is presented, this matters more than the words being used.

    Hi joel,
    I was wondering if you think the 2 witnesis ( cant spell sorry) and the 12 tribes of israel will come before or during the antichrist.

    The two witnesses begin their public ministry after the Antichrist comes on the scene, but arguably before he commits the Abomination of Desolation. (There is a variance of opinion on this.) But the full restoration of the twelve tribes as in Ezekiel 37, is in my opinion, not something that will be fully accomplished until Messiah returns.

    Do you believe the tribes of Israel, and those belonging to the tribes, will be identified before the third Temple is built? Are you aware of any plans to begin rebuilding the Temple?

    Some but not all. This will only be fulfilled when Messiah comes. There are many plans to rebuild the Temple. Yes.

    I agree with you about the two witnesses and the full restoration of the twelve tribes only being fully accomplished when Messiah returns.

    But I just wanted to add, I believe they come the same time the false prophet comes, when the great tribulation starts, but that they protect those around them because they can bring fire down from heaven, so the false prophet and his armies kill Jews and Christians outside of the area protected by Moshe and Eliyah, but as long as people are around them, they’re safe until the beast (in Hebrew is חיה which is the same word used to describe the living creatures in Ezekiel. i.e. A cherub angel) ascends out of the bottomless pit and kills them, then it’s like the force-field that protected everyone around them is disabled, and they can kill and rape in Jerusalem with no opposition. This goes on for a short time, then the day of the Lord begins.

    That’s my understanding, do you see anything I’m missing? Any comments?

    p.s. I just bought the Qur’an dilemma! 🙂
