Trinity vs. Tawhid

David Wood vs. Mohammed Hajib – My Response to a Muslims 4 Questions On November 7th, 2018, I attended a debate at York College between a Christian (David Wood) and a Muslim (Mohammed Hajib) on the topic of the Trinity (Christian Position) and Tawhid (Muslim Position). Among the various fundamental differences between Christianity and Islam, this one stands at the heart of our differences, and hence it was a good topic to debate since it strikes at the issue that divides us. First, let us define our terms for those … Read More »

People have their own individual truths or individual narratives all of which are equally valid. Unfortunately, such unbiblical denials of objective truth have infiltrated the church and have greatly hindered the effectiveness … Read More »
