So tonight’s Frenetic Friday is a
Let me preface this by saying that when I was being discipled in the faith by a former marine he had a saying that as a young Christian I didn’t really understand at the time. That saying was that Christians are the only army that shoot their own wounded. As I have grown older in years and in the faith I have come to the conclusion that my dear brother was wrong. We don’t just shoot the wounded we engage in “friendly fire”, case in point Dr. James White of Alpha Omega ministries.
Now I am a great admirer of Dr. White, I make no effort to hide that fact at all. He and I are of a similar age, although I believe I am older by one or two years, and when he mentions things like “Modems” or “Bulletin Boards” I know exactly what he is talking about. In fact I am fairly sure that I saw his nick on some of the BBS’s that I used to log into while reading the religious/theology debate section. It was his passion for and logical use of the Word of God that impressed me the most and when he came out with the book against K.J.V. Only cult I picked the book up because I had met a few of them. Later when he came on the internet I listened to him every chance I could and when podcasting came about his was one of the first podcasts I subscribed to, not to mention buying his books and devouring them.
Yes I learned a lot from Dr. White and so when I learned that he was attempting to preach the gospel to the followers of Islam and debate them in their mosques I knew there couldn’t be a better person for the job than Dr. White. Indeed I would say that for such a time as this God raised up and prepared Dr. White for this role to be the one to preach the Word of God, the Gospel, to the followers of Islam so that as many are appointed unto eternal life will have their hearts changed by this preaching.
Unfortunately like Alexander the coppersmith, there has risen certain so called brothers in Christ that want to do harm to Dr. White’s ministry to the followers of Islam. Their agenda is one of fear, and hatred. They appear to say and think that it is wrong to preach Christ to the followers of Islam. Or that to dialog with Imams makes you a useful idiot.
Well all I know is this no one can be saved unless they are regenerated by the Holy Spirit and the means of this is the preaching of the Gospel. And to deny that preaching is to be like the Pharisees who told the apostles not to preach Christ. And like the apostles we have to we must obey God rather than men. And Dr. James White is obeying God as he preaches the Gospel to the followers of Islam. And I and this blog stand with Dr. White and Alpha and Omega Ministries.
