Challenging Islam

Challenging Islam. How and where was that notion hatched on my mind? The earliest record I can find is in a newsletter dated September 18th, 2007. I’d just watched Senators Kerry and McCain debating the Iraq War on Meet the Press and was left with two lingering impressions:

“Neither has a clue how to end this war. If it ends, it’s going to end because the ideological front was won by Christianity. What do I mean? The way to undercut Al Queda and end this war, it seems to me, is to prove Mohammed a false prophet. The way to do that is to put him up against the genuine gift of prophecy, publicly. A showdown on modern Carmel – that’s what this world needs, and that’s in part why I want to go to Israel.”

This challenge is not ours; rather it originates with the God of the Bible, who declares:

  1. “I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done …” Isaiah 46:9, 10.

  2. “Show the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that ye are gods …” Isaiah 41:23.

Like Goliath, Islam boasts, but can she show the things that are to come? She cannot, but Christianity can! The virtual non-existence of the prophetic gift in Islam is her Achilles Heel, begging to be exposed. As the prophets of Baal were challenged by Elijah, so, today, Islam, which also claims to have a prophet, must be challenged to see (a) the laser-like precision with which biblical prophecy is fulfilled, and (b) the absolute superiority of Christianity to anything they have.

Q.   How do we propose communicating this challenge?
A.   By erecting the following poster on subways worldwide.

Q.
What will visitors encounter at this website?
A.
A video challenging Islam to use the Koran to replicate the unerring accuracy of biblical prophecy – even once.

Worldwide, Islam’s impotence on this point will open millions of eyes (Muslim as well as non-Muslim) as to the falsity of the claim that Mohammed was a prophet. Put side by side with biblical prophets, his claims will be seen to be baseless, shallow, full of pretension, Islam itself a sham. If Mohammed were a true prophet, then surely he must have predicted something! Bring forth his prophecies, therefore. Bring them forth before the world. Show the world. Tell the world. Tell the subway riders in Frankfurt, London, Hong Kong and Brazil. Yea, answer God’s challenge: “show the things that are to come hereafter that we may know that ye are gods.” Put up, or shut up – that’s what the God of the universe is saying. Isn’t that a fair challenge?
