However, just so Dr Bassim Gorial has no excuses made for him, I'm throwing my hat in the ring. OK I will debate him. I would rather have somebody else debate him on behalf of the Muslims but if this is a genuine stipulation (i.e. that I debate) then I will debate him online.
Original debate challenge to the Islamophobic ABNSat:
For those who have been following some of the recent blogging and vlogging; you will know much refutation, condemnation and rebuke has been poured on the claims and actions of folk on ABNSat:
Rather than give the main protagonists further attention how about we challenge those with editorial/managerial control of the ABN programming?
Yes, indeed this is an open debate challenge to Bassim Gorial, Haifa Gorial, Samar Gorial and Pastor Joseph Najm (you can also bring along Pastor Joseph Habibi too)
It's time to engage with the more influential people at ABN rather than the career foot-soldiers of ABN – who have been discredited and/or refuted:
David Wood (cross-dresser)
Walid Shoebat (try not to laugh at his title ‘ex-terrorist’)
Sam Shamoun (considered foolish)
Kamal Saleem (be wary of this fella, he has 3 different conversion stories out there)
Usama Dakdok (Doesn’t know Islam nor classical Arabic yet is selling a book which he styles as a ‘translation of the Quran’ for ‘donations’ of ~ $25 or ~ $50!)
So Bassim and
you folk believe in Christianity right? I assume you’ve read this part from 1
Peter 3:15: Haifa
Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have
So here’s the challenge for Dr Bassim and Haifa Gorial. I and all other Muslims believe the trinity is something Jesus never taught. Sir Anthony Buzzard states, there’s 12000 accounts of ‘God’ in the Bible; none of which are mentioning tri-unity. You believe in the trinity. If you are confident in this, I ask you to come to the table and respond to this challenge.
Here is the challenge for Pastor Joseph Najm and Pastor Joseph Habibi; you both believe that Jesus is divine, right? Well, we as Muslims see him as a Prophet who NEVER taught that he was divine. This is a huge stumbling block between us, how about coming to the table and discussing this?
That leaves Samar Gorial, well
I assume you believe in the inerrancy of the New Testament. Your faith as a
Bible-believing Christian is based on believing the NT is reliable and
inspired. I invite you to come to the table and accept a debate challenge on
such (if you believe in the above). Here is a sample of the type of discussion to expect:
If any of you are indeed willing to accept this offer for a dialogue please be in touch, I shall endeavour to find a suitable Muslim debate opponent for each one of you.
To those whom are addressed in this blog-post, feel free to contact me to accept an invitation to debate/dialogue:
Did you know Jesus has Muslim brothers and sisters? Would you like to become the brothers/sisters of Jesus? To learn more please see:http://www.thedeenshow.com/
