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.

    Is this found in one of Ryle’s books? Would love to read it.

    Markomus, you state that this statement could apply to anything- and therefore you shrug off the warning. When we evaluate the value of words–we need to always consider the source. JC Ryle’s comments are a self-fulfilling prophecy as we look at history. So also is the Proverb (14:12) you quoted. Your words and my words- well, that’s another story.

    This could apply to many things and therefore says nothing. It’s as bad as, “There is a way which seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.” The speaker is ALWAYS the one who is in the right and the person to whom he/she is speaking is in error.

    What a waste of space.

    In reference to the incarnation Kierkegaard wrote, “…but love does not alter the beloved, it alters itself” (Philosophical Fragments 26). This speaks to the crux of the matter: their is no love in the teaching of error. Instead of affirming and serving biblical truth they insist we change to affirm their “truth”.

    I thought I was reading about people I knew, including some missionaries. And then I saw the date. What a surprise! Things don’t change much with the devil, do they?

    Amazing and positive article! I’m so glad that in this day of ‘new’ strategies, that there are people who believe in God’s strategy, His Word, and His Gospel, and glorifying Him by showing, giving, and displaying these three to the lost.

    We often get tied up in our strategies, our eloquence, and our good news, trying to puff ourselves up.
