The Islamic Dilemma
Compiled by Doug Less-Smith

Fact # 1
According to the Quran Jesus was a prophet of Islam. Surah 42:13
He has ordained for you of religion what He enjoined upon Noah and that which We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what We enjoined upon Abraham and Moses and Jesus - to establish the religion and not be divided therein. Difficult for those who associate others with Allah is that to which you invite them. Allah chooses for Himself whom...
Mohammed was not anticipated by prophecy and made no significant and testable prophecies that came true. He performed no miracles. His testimony contradicts those who came before him. The fruit of his life was war, conquest, slavery to false rules and the oppression of those who opposed him. He provided no absolute assurance that God would save those who believe in Him. He proposed an inadequate model of redemption. His doctrine of God is shallow focusing on his power, sovereignty, justice,...
I have been a Christian since about four or five, although I had a period last year of identifying as atheist then Taoist. People say a true Christian would never do that. That I wasn't saved before, or if I was saved I've crossed an unforgivable line. Could I have been saved? It scares me so much, if I wasn't saved, and I blasphemed and had those soul-selling thoughts does this mean I am irreversibly condemned to hell? I was so sure I loved God growing up, I want to repent and have the love...
I am catholic by the way. I rarely quote scripture. That is partly because I don't have the knowledge of many good CF members who are raised on the Bible as the number one authority.
But I see my role in helping a fellow human being as first, being there for them. As an equal. Not as their scripture quoting superior. As if the OP's lack of knowledge of scripture is contributing to the problem.
See them first as fellow travellers. Don't condescend to them as if you are closer to Heaven , as...
Why do some people say that if someone was Christian and then became atheist or agnostic, they weren't ever really a Christian or ever really saved?
I find it insulting and hurtful to those who earnestly sought Jesus and did not find, especially those who were minsters or otherwise devout Christians before their deconversion.
Daniel 7 Contemporary.
Many people think that Dan.7 concerns history, however I believe & was taught that it is contemporary to us today. So let`s have a look -
After the vision of the Great Image, the overview of the Gentile world rulers, God then gives Daniel a vision. Daniel had a dream and a vision while he was in bed. He awoke and then wrote down the main facts.
`In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon, Daniel had a dream and vision while on his bed. Then he wrote down the...
A former Mormon on YouTube, FlackerMan, takes on the claims made by the Mormon church concerning why you should follow the Mormon prophet.
There's some pretty interesting stuff in here. I'd like to get reactions from both Mormons and non-Mormons. I know that for myself, as a non-Mormon, there are many things that I would say in response to each of these points (some of which are brought up by the uploader in his commentary, e.g., on the benefit of having some kind of measuring stick to...
