War of Words: Christians Battle over Translations for Muslims

By Stan Guthrie

Missionaries and local Christians must overcome the misperceptions and outright falsehoods about Christianity that many Muslims believe.

Another is that describing Jesus as the “Son of God” implies that God the Father and Mary had sexual relations to produce Jesus—an abhorrent concept to Muslims and Christians alike.
