Is the Christian and Muslim God the Same?

quote-anyone-who-claims-that-all-religions-are-the-same-betrays-not-only-an-ignorance-of-all-ravi-zacharias-82-36-70

Here are some defining attributes of the character of God described according to the respective texts of the Holy Bible and the Quran.

God of the Bible = Yahweh
God of the Quran = Allah

Yahweh:
– Triune
– Personable
– Filled with Grace
– Desires relationship
– Imminent

Allah:
– One person
– Not Personable
– Authoritarian
– Does not desire relationship
– Removed/distant

So do they sound like the same God?

——–

Example:

Justin Trudeau is 45 years old

The PM of Canada is 45 years old

—-

Justin Trudeau is leader of the liberal party

The PM of Canada is leader of the liberal party

—-

Justin Trudeau’s birthday is in December

The PM of Canada’s birthday is in December

—-

Justin Trudeau’s wife’s name is Sophie

The PM of Canada’s wife’s name is Sophie

—-

Justin Trudeau has brothers named Michel and Alexandre

The PM of Canada has brothers named Michel and Alexandre

—-

Justin Trudeau was born at Ottawa Civic Hospital

The PM of Canada was born at Ottawa Civic Hospital

Therefore, it is not beyond comprehension to believe that the Prime Minister (PM) of Canada is indeed: Justin Trudeau.

———-

As foolish as it would be to then say:

“You can say the name Justin Trudeau or Kobe Bryant, but regardless of which name you use, we’re talking about the same Prime Minister, ” it is equally absurd to say that Allah and Yahweh are different names for the same God – or for any other god for that matter.

If Allah and Yahweh were the same God, they would share all the same attributes.

Since Allah and Yahweh ‘do not’ share the same attributes,

they are NOT the same God.

That’s why I believe it’s reasonable to ask you to trust in only One Name:

Trust Jesus!
