About Ken Temple

I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I am a sinner who has been saved by the grace of God alone (Ephesians 2:8-9), through faith alone (Galatians 2:16; Romans 3:28; 4:1-16), in Christ alone (John 14:6). But a true faith does not stay alone, it should result in change, fruit, good works, and deeper levels of repentance and hatred of my own sins of selfishness and pride. I am not better than you! I still make mistakes and sin, but the Lord is working on me, conforming me to His character. (Romans 8:28-29; 2 Corinthians 3:16-18) When I do sin, I hate the sin as it is an affront to God, and seek His forgiveness in repentance. (Mark 1:15; 2 Corinthians 7:7-10; Colossians 3:5-16 ) Praise God for His love for sinners (Romans 5:8), shown by the voluntary coming of Christ and His freely laying down His life for us (John 10:18), becoming flesh/human (John 1:1-5; 1:14; Philippians 2:5-8), dying for sins of people from all nations, tribes, and cultures (Revelation 5:9), on the cross, in history, rising from the dead (Romans 10:9-10; Matthew 28, Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24; John 20-21; 1 Corinthians chapter 15). His resurrection from the dead proved that Jesus is the Messiah, the eternal Son of God, the word of God from eternity past; and that He was all the gospels say He was and that He is truth and the life and the way to salvation. (John 14:6)

  1. Jesus says:

    Brilliant performance by Yusuf !

  2. Allah swt says:

    Brilliant performance by James

  3. Sam Shamoun says:

    Brilliant pwnage of Yusuf by James, all glory to our risen Lord Jesus, Muhammad’s God and Judge!

  4. Adam says:

    White is just horrible!

    [ how and in what way? Give specific non-ad hominem arguments and examples]

    • Jesus says:

      You are right bro , White is just horrible . He was no match to the logical , scholarly and through arguments brought by Yusuf , he clealy showed why New Testament is a forged , unreliable book and Quran vice-versa .

      Yusuf’s debating skills are miles ahead of James White , that is the reason why Sam Shamoun ran away from debating his student .

  5. Ken Temple says:

    Seems like Christians think James White did a better job; and Muslims think Yusuf did a better job.

    • Allah swt says:

      1:02:28 , Yusuf accused Hadith of Sahih Bukhari which James had used as not reliable coz its compilation differed several hundred years after the demised of Mr.Mo

      Is Yusuf a Shit’e ? to question a SAHEEH hadith of Bukhari without any clear explanation for flaws in its Isnad & narrators could be considered as sin in sunni muslim however it won’t be a problem if someone is a Shit’e muslim.

      I guess Yusuf might also be a Muttah (Halal prostitution) proponent coz Quran firmly legalizes Muttah and the only way to reject Muttah is by Saheeh Hadiths that unfortunately were compiled several hundred years after Mr.Mo demised.

      From Sunni point of view it’s such a terrible attempt by Yusuf !
      James White (pbuh) knows best ! says Allah Subhanahu wa’taalaa

  6. Crusader says:

    James White was completely refuted in this debate. I cant believe how this idiot Sam Shamoun says the opposite…No wonder he ran away when Yusuf’s student challenged him…This debate totally destroys Christian belief

    • Ken Temple says:

      That is your opinion; but I also think that Dr. White did an excellent job and that it was Yusuf Ismail who was defeated. You didn’t give any evidence, just an assertion.

  7. Crusader says:

    Funny how James came in the rebuttal for the 2nd part of the debate and comes out so sour and bitter…. epic lost for Dr James WHite !

  8. Crusader says:

    Ken-note how James when thoroughly hammered in a debate-starts attacking the speaker and says how “disappointed” he is…he did this with Dr Shabir Ally and did this again here especially in the rebuttal session..he then launched on an attack stating Yusuf never personally analysed manuscripts…well neither did James. both rely on scholarly findings. Yusuf just does a far better job..the comment by Sam says it all. christian madhatters claiming ‘victory’ at all costs even when their arguments are broken down

  9. Crusader says:

    see this latest debate between James WHite and Yusuf Ismail..ken…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3M1fYOoOQw this was a massacre in terms of pure debating. check it out to believe it…especially in the Qur’an section. James when broken down on the Qur’anic verses and its alleged confusion on the trinity cannot even muster a reply in the rebuttal on that point which he mooted as one of the strongest in the debate…Pity that he is not promoting this as his other debates. just one post on A & O ministries

  10. Crusader says:

    the latest debate between James and Yusuf on christology was a total clinical destruction of James (with all respect to hiim) by Yusuf…maybe you could post this too or perhaps not…..

  11. Ken Temple says:

    I actually linked to that debate earlier here.https://apologeticsandagape.wordpress.com/2014/12/18/dr-james-white-theology-matters-and-debates-with-muslims/

    the one you refer to is the third video down, which I embedded in my blog article at the other blog that I blog at. I did not have time to retype, edit everything I wrote there at “Beggar’s All”, so I just linked to it.

    And in your opinion, you think Yusuf Ismail won the debate, but he did not. Lord willing, I hope to get time to watch it slowly again and take notes and write a more detailed blog post on it.
