Responses to Shabir Ally and Muslims who use liberal scholarship

I had meant to follow-up on these for years, (but forgot) as they all together are very useful to read carefully and think about, along with the DL below.  These are from October – November 2013 Blog articles and a Dividing Line Program; that are mostly based in how Muslims like Shabir Ally (and others like the British convert to Islam, Paul Williams) use liberal western NT scholarship (James D. G. Dunn, James McGrath, Bart Ehrman; who are basically just re-packing the arguments of the previous 2-3 centuries of liberal western scholarship, Walter Bauer, Rudolph Bultmann, etc.) against Biblical truth in order to seek to cause doubt on the truth of the NT, and then seek to promote Islam as the true religion of Jesus Al Masih.  I hope to make more comments on this as time allows in the future.

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)
