How Can God Die? by David Wood

Here is an excellent gospel presentation by David Wood, for Muslims, answering the question that Muslims often ask, “How can God die?”

David uses the Bible, and verses from the Qur’an to make his point and to present the truths of the incarnation and the atonement to Muslims. David shows from the Qur’an that Allah is able to do things like to actually be in the fire (“Blessed is He who is in the fire”) and speak from the fire to Moses (Qur’an 27:7-9), and so this shows that Allah can do things like, enter into His own creation, become flesh (John 1:1-5); John 1:14; see also Luke 1:34-35.

He shows that the Qur’an limits Allah, because “Allah does not love sinners”

(Qur’an 2:190; 2:276; 3:32; 3:57; 7:31; 4:36; 8:58; 28:77; 57:23);

yet the Bible says, “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” Romans 5:8

And Romans 5:10 teaches that Christ died for His enemies, which even the Grandverbalizer19, a Muslim, confessed is “greater love”.

A Muslim admits that one dying for His enemies is greater love.

Let’s learn to share the gospel with Muslims, read and use parts of the Qur’an (NOT burn it) to help Muslims understand the difference between Islam, and the truth, Al Haqq الحق , which is one of the 99 names of Allah/God.   God’s word  is the truth, the Bible (John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16). Speak the truth in love to Muslims and respect them as people and seek evangelistic opportunities in the context of hospitality, which is a great cultural value in Muslim cultures.

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)
