Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Islam and Liberal Theology

[The following is an excerpt from Thabiti Anyabwile: The Gospel for Muslims: An Encouragement to Share Christ with Confidence (Chicago: Moody Publishers, 2010), 10-11.]

Muslims believe that Jesus was merely a prophet, not God; they believe our good works gain us entrance into heaven. They believe that the Bible is corrupted and though it contains some words from God, it's not the Word of God. They believe substitutionary atonement is a scandal and that God would never allow His Son to suffer the horror of a blood sacrifice on the cross. Besides, they say, we're not that sinful anyway.

Don't these orthodox doctrines of Islam sound like nominal and popular misconceptions of Christianity in the West?
