But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Make War against your own sin

The music in this makes it really dramatic and effective, in my opinion.  Whoever came up with the music to go with this section of Piper’s sermon, well . . . did a good job.

Context of Surah 2:79 is 2:78 and 2:75

Muslim argument defeated

Written by

To begin, this is an illogical argument because one can take any religious text and add or delete a verse from it. There’s no magical force field around the text itself.

Note that none of the passages actually use the word, Messiah / Mashiach.

Muslims, Jewish people, and even some liberal scholars claim that Isaiah 52:13-15 and 53:1-12 is not about the Messiah just because the word Messiah is not used there.

Paul Williams, a British convert to Islam, makes this...

Unto Him

image The citation of Hosea 11:1 in Matthew 2:15 is a well-known example of a New Testament text using an Old Testament text, and the explanations for this particular case are multiple. For the record, I think Matthew is reading Hosea 11:1 typologically, but that’s not the primary argument...
