What happened to Paul Bilal Williams?

Here we go again.  Paul has gone into private mode on his blog, [Addendum: on March 22 or 23 (?) Paul brought his blog out of privacy mode.]  which he does from time to time. I have not been paying attention to him much lately.  “Answering Abraham” reports other speculations.

But answering Abraham copied his last article announcing that he had left Islam  because the daily disciplines of waking early, praying five times a day, and rituals like fasting during Ramadan were too hard.  But in the article he said he was going to delete his blog, but it is just in “private mode”. (at the time of this writing.)  Maybe he is thinking about his decision and what a waste it would be to totally delete that whole blog.

As I wrote before, pray for him and his soul, that the Lord will draw Him to Jesus the Messiah (John 6:44), and really open his heart to the truth of the gospel for real this time.(Acts 16:14)

Addendum: March 24, 2014

There has been other speculation on why Paul B. Williams left Islam (see at Answering Abraham site, above, and the second com box comment below), but Paul himself denies it; and has either taken down or moved his article at his site, so I cannot find the addendum that he added.  Oh well.  I don’t have time to waste on this issue.  Interested readers will have to spend their time trying to find all the updates, etc.    Paul seems to have left being a practicing Muslim, but wants the thrill of continuing to criticize the Bible and Christianity to the maximum extent, using both western liberal arguments and Islamic arguments, it seems.  But he does make an amazing admission here (no longer there, unfortunately), that the Qur’an does not teach that the text of the Injeel has been corrupted.  That is good.

“1) The Quran does not teach that the Bible has been textually corrupted – it does suggest that the Bible has been misinterpreted, key verses concealed, distorted etc.” point one from an Islamic scholar named Abdel Haleem.  See the rest of Paul Williams’ article at his site.

Addendum 2:

A few days later, Paul Williams turned back to Islam.   (posted on March 30, 2014)

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)

    Thanks Mark! Good to have the documentation of all the back and forth, even though it is difficult to know for sure what is really going on with him. Hard to tell if he is being sarcastic or not in the comment to Nazam “that’s right”. I am spending more time on articles with substance issues, doctrines, church history, etc. I guess you saw his article of Paul’s

    ( I had to delete that link, because it appears to be a trap to some sort of virus or other hacking problem.)

    I don’t have the time nor desire to spend in the details of that stuff; and, because of time, I even cannot read a lot of his articles. I usually pick one or two where the subject and title grabs my attention and I see that he has mis-represented the Bible and Christianity, as in the recent one on the Nicean Council and also the one of the atonement being merciless and cruel. But he bans a lot of my comments and only lets some through now, even though I never get personal or dirty, like some other commentators.
