What Does Peace Mean in Islam? "Human Rights, Dignity, and the Value of Women" September 15-16th, 2017
Dr. Mateen Elass, The Voice of the Truth Ministries
Location – Red Lion Hotel Convention Center, 1223 Mullowney Ln. Billings, Missouri Room
In a culture obsessed with fairness and human rights,
why are Muslims getting a pass while Christians are getting bullied?
Is Islam a religion of Peace and why does it matter?
When it comes to effectively defining Islam, Mateen Elass has few equals. From a comprehensive understanding of Islam, Mateen will establish that Islamic ideology precludes peaceful coexistence prior to complete universal submission to Allah.
In a culture obsessed about Human Rights and dignity for woman
Why are Muslims getting a pass? Dr. Elass will take us beyond the surface rhetoric to understand the Islamic dogma that underscores the fact that woman are second class and will “comprise the majority population of Hell.”
What do Muslims think of America?
This question lies at the “foundation” of the idea that Shari'a law will not affect us and Islam is compatible with our values that all men are created equal and have equal rights.
The biggest deception foisted upon the West
Even Republicans have fostered the deception that we worship the same god and that segments of Islam are peaceful. Since 9/11, most American politicians have parroted the fantasy line that Islam is a religion of peace, and that true democracy and true Islam can partner for a better future. With grace and truth, Mateen will show how this not consistent with their dogma.
Our Program for September 15-16th, 2017
Friday Night 7- 9:00pm
Saturday Morning 9:00 – 11:30 am
Dr. Mateen Elaas, Apologist & Evangelist with the Voice of the Truth Ministries
The son of a Syrian Muslim father, he was raised for more than a decade in Saudi Arabia. As a searching teen-ager, Mateen focused on Eastern Mysticism, even living in India. While at Stanford University, he dated a Christian who insisted he study the scripture. At age twenty, he converted to Christ – costing him a decade of isolation from his father.
Most recently, Elass served as the Senior Pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Edmond Oklahoma (PCUSA). His conservative views led him to disassociate from the PCUSA. He holds degrees from Stanford University (B.A. Philosophy), Fuller (M.Div., M.A. Biblical Studies), and a PhD (New Testament) from the University of Durham in England. Elass is the author of Understanding the Koran: A Quick Christian Guide to the Muslim Holy Book and The Teachings of Jesus and Muhammad.
He is a frequent speaker at churches and universities. He and his wife Cindy live in Co. Springs with their three children.
