Wheaton Controversy Reminds Us What Is Distinctive About Christianity: Jesus

There seems to be a conversation going on in some parts of the Christian and Moslem communities about how Christianity and Islam are faiths that are following the same God. This has been highlighted by a professor at an evangelical Christian university. The cultural conversation today seems to be revolve around the perceived need to accommodate all faiths. The problem with this is that Jesus does not fit into these other faiths. Scott McKnight does a good job of outlining the issues and what differentiates Christianity from Islam. Jesus is the stumbling stone. There is no philosophical way to get around this except to ignore Him completely.
