Before moving on to some good journalistic endeavours from James White, I’d like to showcase an observation I made whilst on Ergun Caner’s official YouTube page.
Did I find a whopper of a lie? No, BUT I did notice Ergun Caner’s ONLY subscription was to a dishonest and shamed “Christian” ministry called Acts 17 Apologetics – which also passes itself off as learned in Islam. I guess the dishonest attract the dishonest I kid you not. The awful proof:
Note: to magnify, double click the image - do view the entire magnified image as the sub to Acts 17 is at the bottom left corner
Dishonesty attracts dishonesty
Just in case you are unaware of Acts 17’s extent of dishonesty. Here are the co-founders of Acts 17 ministries simply making stuff up (perhaps that’s what Ergun Caner was attracted to):
Nabeel Qureshi – a whopper of a lie
David Wood – Dangerous Lie
I’m pretty sure you are familiar with the Ergun Caner scandal – he was rumbled by a British Muslim vlogger (Mohammad Khan); ultimately the media got wind of it and dear old Ergun was removed from his position as the PRESIDENT of LIBERTY UNIVERSITY (yep the university where blokes such as Gary Habermas, Norman Geisler and co roll).
To put simply, it’s the biggest example of MUSLIMS helping to clean up Christian ministries bar none.
James White has been investigating Ergun Caner for a while and continues to heap the pressure on Caner’s shoulders with some silky journalistic endeavours. I know White has his faults and detractors but he has given those complicit in the Ergun Caner cover up both barrels and has kept Ergun Caner under scrutiny. The more shaky “Christian” missionaries put under scrutiny the better – they need an impetus to stick within the realms of honesty.
OK, endorsing a book is hardly a crime BUT endorsing a book which promotes the Insider Movement IS a crime – especially considering Ergun Caner has denounced the “camel toe” method as deceptive.
For those unaware, these are deceptive Christian missionary methods to convert Muslims to Christianity. This is how desperate these evangelical folk are. Inventive, yet deceptive!
Since brother James’ reporting the book endorsement was scrapped from Siljander’s website. Somebody has got something to hide. In any case, what in the world are folk doing seeking “endorsements” from brother Ergun? He knows next o nothing about Islam and is duplicitous to boot as highlighted by James showing Ergun disagreed with material within Siljander’s book but still endorsed it. What do book endorsements from Ergun Caner mean? Next to nothing. Could someone nudge brother Louis Ruggiero.
Christians CLOSE the doors!
Stop allowing the dishonest amongst your community to dress up as “authorities” in Islam while they know next to nothing. Last year, 2010, we spent a considerable amount of time rebuking the lies of James White’s friend (Sam Shamoun) along with the chaps at Acts 17, Walid Shoebat, Kamal Saleem, ABN etc…
This year it seems to be the SAME players are still lurking. Ergun Caner is STILL very much active – Shamoun, Saleem, Wood, Dakdok, CP, Father Zakaria Botros and Shoebat are still plying their dishonest trades whilst covering up their past indiscretions. To this year’s bunch we can add Dr Kent Hovind to the list. I’m pretty sure we will find a few others to preoccupy us as 2011 unravels.
When are we going to see real and meaningful accountability coming out of Christian discernment ministries? When? We (Muslims) have been waiting centuries. Yes, centuries! (A brief history of Christian missionary deception).
Peruse this blog and you will see countless examples of deception from “Christian” evangelists who are representing you.
Question for the honest: Who’s more devious?
Right, we have the current crop of dishonest men in the Church BUT are they as dishonest and deplorable as the scribes who changed the Bible for inane reasons such as SEXISM?
A light hearted thought with a deadly serious subtext!
A new book by James White?
