#330 Islam, Nigel Farage and the ‘Islamicize Me’ Controversy
On tonight’s programme we look at Nigel Farage’s opposition to UKIP exposing Islam as a religion, rather than just focusing on so-called extremist groups like ISIS. We also look at how Christians today typically deal with the issue of Islam, and how to deal with threat, while loving our Muslim neighbour in sharing the truth of Jesus Christ. Near the end of the programme Paul offers some comments on the ‘Islamicize Me’ controversy involving Acts 17 Apologetics, Vocab Malone and James White. How are we to evangelise Muslims with the gospel of Jesus Christ?
#280 UKIP and Nigel Farage: Critics of Islamic Faith not Welcome
After the election of UKIP’s new leader, Henry Bolton, what does it mean from the party? What did Bolton mean when he said the party could “easily slip towards the ideals of national socialism”? Did he really label many in the party who oppose Islam as ‘Nazis’? Where does Nigel Farage, one of the heroes of the #BREXIT movement, stand on all this? Does he accept critics of Islam within the party, or in British politics in general? Does Nigel Farage really stand for free speech at all within his own party?
#266 Linda Sarsour’s Call to Jihad and Phil Johnson’s Defence of James White
Linda Sarsour, who is a friend of Yasir Qadhi, called for Jihad against Donald Trump at the weekend. What could she mean by this call? Will Yasir Qadhi defend Sarsour with her irresponsible speech? We also start a critique of a defence of James White’s actions with Yasir Qadhi given by Phil Johnson and Chris Arnzen of Iron Sharpens Iron Radio.
#263 The James White/Yasir Qadhi Controversy
We are joined on tonight’s programme by Mark Fitzpatrick of Arann Reformed Baptist Church in Dublin, Ireland to discuss a dialogue which took place between Yasir Qadhi and James White of Alpha and Omega Ministries. Should Christians have concerns with the dialogue? What was the message White and Qadhi shared? What should be the response of Christians to such a dialogue and the proposed co-operation with Islam?
