We search the world for truth. We call
The good, the true, the beautiful,
From graven stone and written scroll,
From all old flower-
And, weary seekers of the best,
We come back laden from our quest,
To find that all the sages said
Is in the Book our mothers read.
I paused last eve beside the blackmith‘s door,
And heard the anvil ring the vesper chime;
And looking in I saw upon the floor
Old hammers, worn with beating years of time.
“How many anvils have you had?” said I,
“To wear and batter all these hammers so?”
“Just one,” he answered. Then with twinkling eye:
“The anvil wears the hammers out, you know.”
And so, I thought, the anvil of God’s Word
For ages sceptics’ blows have beat upon,
But though the noise of falling blows was heard,
The anvil is unchanged, the hammers gone.

The Christian response to Islam is twofold: love Muslims while resisting Islam. As hard as it may be, we must do both simultaneously: stand up for freedom on the political level and resist stealth jihad, while loving and reaching out to individual Muslims, bringing Christ’ message of salvation to Muslim friends and contacts. So to warn about the very real dangers of political Islam and creeping sharia does not mean we don’ seek to reach out to individual Muslims with love and the gospel.
A rather depressing but indispensable website is maintained by the folks at the Religion of Peace website. They have been performing an incredible and invaluable service to humanity by meticulously keeping track of just how peaceful the religion of peace really is. Every attack, every killing, every assault, and every suicide blast is recorded and documented.
Josh McDowell: The Islam Debate
Answering Islam Answering Islam is not the work of one person alone, but many people contributed and continue to contribute to the content of this web site. Not all authors hold the same opinion on every detail under discussion. As with the interaction between Muslim and Christian arguments the reader is invited to ponder the differing opinions of Christians on these matters and then decide for himself or herself which reasoning is more convincing.
Publications by Dr. Ernest Hahn on Answering Islam has an excellent discussion on introducing the Muslim to the Christian Doctrine of the Trinity.

King James "ONLYism"

Adherents of this cult spend many hours every week in classes to study their literature, studying to refute any attempts to discredit their faith. What a different world we would have if Christian’s took their study of the Bible as seriously.
Let me challenge you to spend time reflecting on and coming to your own conclusion regarding the following.
1. The JW’s took the old 1901 American Standard Bible are changed it into their New World translation. Prove that the NW translation of “the word was a god” in John 1:1 is erroneous from Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 44:6, 45:5; John 17:3; 1 John 5:20.
2. Prove the deity of Christ from 1 Peter 3:15, compared to Isaiah 8:13; and from Revelation 1:17 compared with Isaiah 44:6, 48:12.
3. Prove the personality of the Holy Spirit from Acts 13:2, 28:25.
