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)

Context of Surah 2:79 is 2:78 and 2:75

Muslims charge the Christians and Jews with altering, changing, corrupting the text of the previous Scriptures.  (previous to the Qur’an)  Yet the Qur’an teaches that the previous Scriptures are not corrupted or changed.  (Surah 10:94; 5:46-48; 5:68) See here One … Continue reading

Muslim argument defeated

To begin, this is an illogical argument because one can take any religious text and add or delete a verse from it. There’s no magical force field around the text itself. Stewjo004, a Muslim, and author of the article: “Corruption of … Continue reading

Passages in the Old Testament that modern Jewish people say is about the Messiah

Note that none of the passages actually use the word, Messiah / Mashiach. Muslims, Jewish people, and even some liberal scholars claim that Isaiah 52:13-15 and 53:1-12 is not about the Messiah just because the word Messiah is not used … Continue reading
