Are the God of Christianity and Allah the Same God?
Several days ago, I had a serious debate with my mother over whether or not the true God of the universe is the same God as the god of Islam, Allah. My mother is convinced that they are one and the same. I, on the other hand, reject that idea wholeheartedly. Jesus states in the Bible , “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.“ (John 14:6) Therefore, Christ is the key element to reaching God. Without Him, one has no access to God. Therefore, my mother and many who share her viewpoint are dead wrong.
Another major difference is the fact that the God in the Bible was willing to give His Son to die for us, whereas Allah asks his followers to give their sons (and daughters) to die for him. Sounds to me like we Christians get a far better deal. What kind of god would desire his followers to intentionally kill themselves and others to earn his favor?
Watch this Hamas TV video, via Jihad Watch and you will find the answer to my question. Do not forget that these are the people that our president is so eager to support. He thinks they want peace. What a joke that is!
