Does Jonathan McLatchie Believe the Bible Teaches a Flat Earth?
Jonathan, in borrowing arguments from unscholarly and inconsistent Christian missionaries, makes himself look inconsistent and ignorant.
If Jonathan McLatchie is consistent one would expect him to believe the Bible teaches a flat earth as per Matthew 4:8 and Luke 4:5. Clearly Jonathan McLatchie has an issue here. He wrongly suggests the Hadith of the Sun Prostrating is literal despite the classical scholar Nawawi teaching differently:
Damascene scholar Nawawi concluded that the Hadith of the Sun Prostrating must be referring to a metaphorical prostration - the sun's submission to God's will through the order of His creation. As the Quran reads in a highly poetic passage: 'The stars and the trees bow down' (55:6). 'Misquoting Muhammad', Jonathan A.C Brown, Kindle p71
Christian apologist Jonathan McLatchie borrows an argument from a Christian polemicist bigot and claims a figurative Hadith is literal. This exposes his ignorance as he is put alongside Dr Jonathan Brown (Hadith scholar). It also highlights his inconsistency, unless Jonathan McLatchie actually believes the Bible teaches a flat earth?
