Within this video, Ravi Zacharias points this out, saying,
“You take a look at other world religions and see where these 4 questions are dealt with:
These 4 questions have to be answered in 2 ways. Every particular answer has to correspond to truth either thru empirical form of measurement or thru the logical reasoning process. And when those 4 answers are put together, they must cohere and not be incoherent.
So the 2 Tests: Correspondence & Coherence.
I GUARANTEE you, ONLY in the Judeo-Christian worldview will you find these four questions answered with corresponding truthfulness and with the coherence of a worldview.
Let me take just 1 example. And I don’t say this to slight, but this is just a fact and we have to deal with it. I’ve been invited in many, many islamic countries and I have open forums there and I’m going to go to one of the toughest Islamic countries in the next few weeks. They’ve hosted me in many parts there and we’ve had dialogues. I want to give to you two things, in the Koran, it is the ONLY historically claimed document that denies that Jesus Christ was actually crucified or that He died on the cross. It denies that. The Greek historians say He died on the cross, Roman historians say that, pagan historians say that, Jewish historians say that, and Christian historians say that. The koran is the only one that says it ‘appeared’ to them that he died but he didn’t ACTUALLY die on the cross. So Historically, it is making an affirmation that is really historically UNTRUE.
I got into a discussion with Shek Hussein, of the LEADING shi-ite clerick in Damascus Syria. He’s a REAL gentleman. For over 3 hours we talked, with an interpreter between us and an audience listening….at the end of the discussion he said it was not time for Islam to ask IF Jesus Christ died, but WHY.”
