Islam and the Birth of Christ

Islam and the Birth of Christ

What do Muslims believe about the birth of Jesus, and how is it different from what Christians believe? Many Evangelical Christians are surprised to discover that Islam believes in Jesus as the Virgin-born Messiah and Prophet. Indeed, it is interesting we have many professing Christian leaders who deny the supernatural birth of Jesus, but all […]

We Need a Divine Reset

We Need a Divine Reset

This week, October 12th, is the Jew’s Day of Atonement or “Yom Kippur.”  This celebration is significant to Christians because Jesus became our atonement, fulfilling the human need for purgation from sin. 1 John 2:2 says, “He [Jesus] is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of […]
