This is quite insightful into a reason (if not the reason) why James White of Alpha and Omega Ministry continues to believe in the reliability of the Bible and in the trinity.
Is it possible that in his heart of hearts he knows the falsehood in his beliefs but sticks with them simply because he has been defending them in debates over decades?
In this video we see James White's ego get the better of him with some outlandish assertions; he claims to have read more than most imams, he can narrate ahadith like imams and he claims to have 'translated' parts of the Quran (despite it being clear he does not know Arabic)
James White claims he knew Arabic on FaceBook:
James White appealing to some dodgy guy on the internet when rebuked:
If video does not play, please see:
We highlight Dr James White does not know Arabic thus his claim of 'translating' portions of the Quran seems dubious to say the least.
He claims to be able to narrate ahadith like imams. Many imams are scholars. These people narrate ahadith in Arabic (original language) and from memory. James White is actually shown not to be able to even recite (from memory) 4 well-known verses from the Quran (Surah Ikhlas) how in the world can he claim to be able to narrate hadith like imams?
James also claims to have read ahadith collections (more than imams) - I doubt this is true as he listens to audio whilst on his bike rides. James should also recognise that our scholars study the ahadith - they memorise them too. Not merely read or listen to them.
So why does James present himself as somebody who is better-read than most imams and is able to narrate ahadith like imams and 'translate' portions of the Quran?
Exagerration out of pride? Did his ego not allow him to actually keep it real?
I'd like to invite James White to relook into the trinity and the Bible minus the pride.
Is the Gospel of John reliable?
Christian evangelist to reject the trinity?
