"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    Don't know much about Islam?

    The 2010 God and Culture Conference on Apologetics took place today at the Oakbrooke Bible Church, Waterford, Michigan, USA. Though I have yet to hear all the sessions (though I hope to over the coming days), the 5th talk on the subject of Islam by Dr. James White was amazing for the amount of information packed into 50 minutes. Dr. White has spent much of the last 5 years studying Islam in depth, including the daunting task of learning Arabic, yet this has proven to be remarkably helpful in preparing him for the public debates he has had with leading Islamic apologists in the USA, the United Kingdom and Australia.

    A portion of the talk may be disturbing to some as it includes an Islamic "alter call" as we hear people becoming Muslims as they are guided through the necessary confession in Arabic - and it is certainly uncanny to notice the similarities between this and much that takes place in Christian services today. As I say, the session on Islam is the 5th talk in the list found here. I recommend it very highly. - JS

    I was at the conference in Waterford, MI this Saturday. Both of Dr. White's messages were exeptional. The unfortunate thing about the message on Islam was its brevity because of time limits. The other messages are also worth listening to as well. I am thankful for the Reformed work happening on the east side of Michigan.
