Studying Islam Can Bring This Pluralistic World Together with “A Muted Imam: Narrative of a Naturalist Imam’s Message” by Khalid A. Wasi.
Though speaking of events in Bermuda, the book Muted Imam sheds light on what should be an inherent right in every part of the world. It speaks of Islam coming out of environments, as opposed to being parachuted in. It is the story of a man who climbs through isms and ideology to discover truth.
The book emphasizes that attaining truth is the repository of the whole of humanity, and it dispels the notion of the Quran belonging to a sect, rather than to all of humanity. One of the markers of globalization is that most Western societies have become diverse, and pluralism is the new challenge. With Islam and Muslims receiving so much media coverage, it begs the question of nativity and the evolution of Islam, as it should be interpreted from a Westerner’s experience or even as globalists, with their native expression and perspective.
There are many mosques and communities filled with immigrant Muslims. Naturally, they have brought along their own culture and religious practices, so the More >

“Beware of This False Doctrine: Of Reciting the Sinners’ Prayer for Salvation” by NngmingBongle Bapuohyele
A False Doctrine in Christianity Exposed! Learn All About Being Born Again in “Beware of This False Doctrine: Of Reciting the Sinners’ Prayer for Salvation” by NngmingBongle Bapuohyele.
Ghanaian-born male sexagenarian, NngmingBongle Bapuohyele, is the author of this very captivating book destined to shake and test the foundations of Christianity.
Set in the background of Hebrew culture of the first century and presented with a touch of holy suspense, this book vividly and insightfully teaches the doctrine of the Holy Scriptures on how one becomes born again to enter the salvation of the Almighty.
Revealed as wrong, today’s popular practice whereby the born again experience is sought through the reciting of a so-called Sinners’ Prayer after “men of God,” it teaches that one is born again only through sincere repentance from sin and baptism into the true name of the Savior.
This true name of the Hebrew-born Savior is revealed as Yahushua HaMashakhYahu, as was delivered by an angel from Heaven and not “Jesus Christ,” a popular man-made name of Greek origin believed in by almost the entire world as belonging to the Savior.
This stunning theology book inspiringly distinguishes between remission and forgiveness of sin; it lays More >
