Geisler by Ron Rhodes Norman L. Geisler is interviewed on a variety of issues related to this book. Newsletter: Why do Christians need to be concerned about Islam? Geisler: One out of every five persons on the face of the earth is a Muslim.

One out of every five! In the United States Islam is growing at an astronomical rate. There are more Muslims than Methodists in the United States. Historically and theologically, many Muslims have been committed to the annihilation of unbelievers — which includes us. Islam is a serious threat to Christianity. Newsletter: Muslims are monotheists, right? Geisler: Yes. Monotheism is the belief that there is one God. Jews and Christians are monotheistic.

But Muslims are the most rigid monotheists in the world. They confuse unity and singularity. Any other persons associated with God is considered blasphemy. God has no partners, Muslims say. Geisler: You just lost your head in Saudi Arabia! Newsletter: Muslims say Muhammad was a prophet. No one comes to the Father except through me. But you need to keep one thing in mind here.

And so Christians must answer that allegation. We do this in our book, Answering Islam, by showing that we have manuscripts of the New Testament that go back hundreds of years prior to the time of Muhammad. Now, keep in mind that Muhammad referred to the New Testament Gospels of his day — and indicated their reliability. It teaches that Jesus was virgin born, sinless, performed supernatural miracles including raising people from the dead , and bodily ascended into heaven.

One must emphasize to the Muslim that the Jesus of the New Testament claimed to be God, not just a prophet. We have a whole chapter in our book on the deity of Christ.

He received worship on many different occasions. Jesus forgave sins, which only God can do Mark Jesus resurrected people from the dead, which only God has the power to do John So Jesus in many different ways is shown to be God, not just a prophet. In fact, he disavowed such an ability. There are 99 names for God in Islam.

We have them listed in our book. They believe that being a Father implies that he has a son, and that is considered blasphemous. God has no partners. Newsletter: What is the Islamic concept of God in terms of human beings relating to him? Geisler: The Islamic God is very remote, very transcendent.

The main thing in Islam is not fellowship with God, but service and allegiance to God. There is no fatherly concept of God at all. Not so in Islam. Newsletter: Islam and Christianity, then, set forth clearly different views of God and Jesus Christ, among other things. Both systems cannot be true. Geisler: Right! The answer to the question of truth is of eternal importance.

If Islam is true, Christianity is false. If Christianity is true, Islam is false. If Islam is right, then Jesus Christ was lying when He said that. Newsletter: Any closing thoughts for Christians who want to become equipped for the work of apologetics? Geisler: One of my teachers — a man who spent some twenty years in the Middle East, and made a great impression on my life — used to say that with regard to education and preparation for serving Christ, Get all you can!

Can all you get! And sit on the lid! Becoming equipped for the work of apologetics is an absolute necessity for Christians today.
