WATCH: BILLY GRAHAM OFFICIAL SAYS ISLAM HAS 'DARK SIDE'
Evangelicals Advise on Muslim Dialogue
Roy Oksnevad, director of the Ministries to Muslims department at the Billy
Graham Center at Wheaton College, said dialogue with Muslims is good but of
limited value. "There is a dark side to Islam, and, frankly, I've never met
a Muslim who understood the concept of the Trinity."
How can we help the Billy Graham Center out?
The Holy Quran Sura 5:76 is clear about the issue of the Trinity:
"They do blaspheme who say:
God is one of three
IN a Trinity: for there is
No god except One God.
If they desist not
From their word (of blasphemy)
Verily a grievous penalty
Will befall the blasphemers
So, it is not that we Muslims cannot understand the Trinity but that the Trinity is antithetical to the concept of Monotheism, based on the final revelation from God.
Love and light,

Beloved Rev. Steadman:
That, Jalaledin, is the "hole" in your understanding to the true Christian faith and why mainstream Christianity, except for the few maverick denominations, like this one, will never accept your God as their God (failing to recognize they are the same) because they have "...blasphemed against the Holy Ghost. For it is said he hath an unclean spirit."
