James R. White: The Qur'anic Test of Muhammad as a Prophet

MP3 Available Here

James R. White, founder & director of Alpha & Omega Ministries , a theologically Reformed Christian apologetics ministry based in Phoenix, AZ, will address the theme: "The Qur'anic Test of Muhammad as a Prophet."

The media makes much of the fact that there are some similarities between the two largest religions in the world, Christianity and Islam. It is true that both religions are Monotheistic. Both religions believe that Jesus actually did exist, and that he was born of the virgin Mary, that he performed miracles, that he will return in the future, and that he is the Messiah. Both religions believe that angels, devils and Satan exist. Both share many of the same rules of morality and conduct. Both believe there is an eternal afterlife for humans. A number of other similarities could be cited. But do these similarities confirm that Muhammed, believed by Muslims to be the greatest prophet of all, is truly a prophet of God? While Christians agree that Muhammed does not pass the biblical test for a prophet, does he even truly pass the Qur'anic test? Listen to tonight's fascinating interview to find out!
