Muslim Theological Objections
2011 Vol. 1: Jan/Feb
Wherever you meet Muslims and have the opportunity to discuss your faith, their first objection is often to the truthfulness of God’s Word. They have been taught that the book we claim is God’s Word is, in fact, not His Word, but a book that no longer contains God’s truth. They believe it has been changed, perhaps by our forefathers, so it is no longer trustworthy. They have been told not to read it because it will lead them astray. Nowhere in the Quran is an understanding of how the Bible came to be, what it really is, or that its central theme is Christ. Even if the first objection from your Muslim friend deals with Jesus and what He did or said, in reality, the attack is being directed toward the written Word.
