Georges Houssney

Georges Houssney was raised in the predominantly Muslim city of Tripoli, Lebanon. He came to faith in Jesus Christ as a teenager. Soon God grew a deep love for Muslims in his heart, and he began to sense God's call for full-time service among them. Well-known for his work supervising the translation and publication of the Bible into clear modern Arabic, Georges and his family moved from the Middle East to the United States in 1982 to minister to international students. Georges is passionate about reaching internationals here and abroad with the great news of salvation. He writes and lectures internationally about ministry to Muslims, and he strives to awaken a new generation who will proclaim the gospel boldly. Georges is founder and director of Horizons International and does Muslim evangelism training through his training Engaging Islam.

    Georges:

    Thanks for your continued solid work and your adherence to the authority of the Word of God. If we do not start with this as our foundation, we will fall – for anything.

    I couldn’t agree more with the article. Thank you, Georges. Even the most thorough hermeneutical approach is insufficient without the dynamic of Christ’s headship personally active in my life. In the military, years ago, we marched with amazing precision. Impasses were nonexistent and destinations were always reached as we followed our commander’s cadence. We all knew how to march: the key was to follow the one with the authority to command the march and to march His way.

    Great article. I totally agree that we must be guided by scripture first and foremost. I think that goes for missionary methods, but also for attitudes. When must take up the cross, lay down our lives, and live humbly.

    As far as exegesis goes, we must use proven methods. Looking at scripture in its historical context. We must not cave-in to post-modern reader response theories.

    Amen, Georges. Give me a “thus says the Lord” any day and leave the “thus says the board” or “thus says the hoard” behind. Give me authority due to the light of truth unadulterated, and leave all the socio babble in the dust. Keep up the good work.
