Jack Chick exposes inconsistencies and contradictions in the Koran
by Bill Levinson
We will say up front that we do not share Jack Chick’s theology (only his kind of Christians are going to Heaven while everybody else, including the wrong kinds of Christians as well as Jews and Hindus, are going to the other place), but he definitely has his uses. He has apparently read the Koran in detail, and pointed out inconsistencies as well as statements that Allah is inconsistent–which is hardly consistent with a divine entity. Chick points out, for example,
“Sura 2.106 Whatever communications We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, We bring one better than it or like it. Do you not know that Allah has power over all things?” They worship a God who can’t make up his mind?
The Koran also contradicts itself, which is particularly damning:
[2.256] There is no compulsion in religion; truly the right way has become clearly distinct from error; therefore, whoever disbelieves in the Shaitan and believes in Allah he indeed has laid hold on the firmest handle, which shall not break off, and Allah is Hearing, Knowing.
[47.4] So when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then make (them) prisoners, and afterwards either set them free as a favor or let them ransom (themselves) until the war terminates. That (shall be so); and if Allah had pleased He would certainly have exacted what is due from them, but that He may try some of you by means of others; and (as for) those who are slain in the way of Allah, He will by no means allow their deeds to perish.
Chick’s background includes psychological warfare, by the way.
Chick heard from missionary Bob Hammond, who had broadcast in Asia on the Voice of America, that the Communist Party of China had gained significant influence among ordinary Chinese in the 1950s through the distribution of small comic books.
