At a time when a new wind is blowing through the Arab world calling for change, Miracle Channel is busy answering questions live on air from Muslims about the Christian faith.
In a new live show on Miracle Channel, viewers have the opportunity to ask questions about the Bible and the Christian faith. It turns out that Muslims have a lot of questions to ask. Many are confused and are uncertain what the Christians really believe. They ask how the Christians can pray to three gods, why they worship a man and how they can believe in the Bible if it is corrupted. These are common assumptions that Muslims around the world have about Christians.
What is most surprising however, are not the many questions but the positive reactions when they receive their answers from a friendly panel of Bible experts. Many of the viewers say that they are impressed that they are allowed to ask these questions, and even Christian believers in the Arab world are calling us saying that the programs help them answer questions they in turn get from their Muslim friends.
Here are some of the replies we received in response to this program:
I often wondered why the bible would include the sins of the prophets when they are holy men. In Islam we would never do that. It would be shameful. But the brothers in this program answered this question and now I understand that it is proof that the Bible speaks the truth and that the sins were included for us to learn from them. It also shows us that God can use people that are not perfect. Thank you for opening my eyes!
Your programs are very good. As a Muslim I am pleased to see that you Christians can talk about mistakes in your bible. That made me trust you and I continued to watch all (25) episodes, one after another. I discovered through your words and by reading the Bible for myself that there are no mistakes in it. The fault lies with those who attack it. Thank you for this light that I have discovered.
I am a Muslim and I respect the Christians. But I have many questions about the corruption of the Bible. These questions used to confuse me. Your program has helped me very much. Now I also believe that this book, the Holy Bible, is Gods word and that there is nothing dishonest in it. Thank you for your help and for answering all the questions you get.
I have many Muslim friends and they always ask me many questions about how I can be a Christian young woman when the Bible is full of mistakes. They always ask me about the books that were removed from the Bible. I had no answer to give my Muslim friends. But now I thank you because you have helped me to know how I can answer them, and now I am proud of the Bible, that is my book!
From Saudi Arabia:
We often hear that the Bible was written by people who talks about the life of Christ. After watching your program I understand how difficult if not impossible it would be to corrupt the Bible, because God does not leave his word in the hands of people are not to be trusted. It God cannot look after his word so that it is correct, then it is impossible for Him to expect that people should follow His will. Thank you for this program, continue with what you are doing.
Every month Miracle Channel receives several thousand responses from Muslims that watch our programs. In August of 2011 a total of 11081 viewers contacted us.
