• God vs Allah

    God vs Allah

    There is only one true God, who revealed Himself in the Bible, through His prophets. And if we
    compare between the God of the Christians, and Allah of the Muslims, we will see a lot of differences.

God & Allah

Would you elaborate on that very first point?

 

Q4. Would you elaborate on that very first point?

Answer

Yes, I would say about the first point, his attributes. In the Quran there are 99 names for god. When you read the whole Quran, from Alfatiha, the first surah, till surah number 114, the last surah of the Quran, you will not find the word 'father' or 'love' attributed to God. God is no father in Islam. God is no love in Islam. And when we come to these two distinctive names of God in Christianity, of course, when the disciples came to Jesus and they told Him, "Teach us to pray?" What did He say? "When you pray you say, 'Our father who are in heaven..." But in Islam god, Allah, is no father. Why did Islam deny the fatherhood of God? Because if Islam would confess the fatherhood of God, it demands that they will confess that eternal sonship of Jesus Christ, because there is no eternal fatherhood without eternal sonship. This is why, when you read the Quran, God is no father. If he is a father, and this is one of his attributes, he must have a son. And of course, He is a father for eternity, then the son should be eternal also, or else there will not be any eternal fatherhood. That is one thing that we have to consider in the attributes of God, the difference in the attributes of God between Islam and Christianity.

The second name of the second attribute, God is love. Our love, when we confess it, we would come to the plan of salvation, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believeth in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life." When we confess that God is love, we must come to the plan of redemption, because there is no other way for God to demonstrate His love but through the sacrifice of His only begotten Son. So there is a big difference between Allah of the Islam, who is no father, and no love, and God of the Christianity, who is the Father, and who is love. There is a difference in the attributes of God. And of course, if I will continue, I would say that Allah of the Islam commanded in the Quran that people will be killed in his name. And the Jihad, which we hear about it is based, totally and completely on verses from the Quran.
In the Bible, God never asked anybody do go and fight for him, to force people to believe in Him. And I repeat, God never asked anyone to go and fight for Him, to force people to believe in Him. Believing is a choice, and we cannot believe against out will. So many attributes are different between Allah in Islam, and God of the Christianity.

I would like to thank you for elaboration on this post. I enjoyed reading and learning about your response on the topic. I had little knowledge about the Quar'an side.

Peace Goer,in the name of Yashua-Christ Messiah. Hope you're well.To academically define for you, as the quran, in (Sura10:94) informed Mohammed to ask the "People of the scriptures that EXISTED before him.."WORD OF GOD,which in Hebrew means, "DABAR-Speech, you must research (Genesis 2:17), realized that a PENALTY for sin was placed upon the continuation of ALL humans who would be born, (Romans3:19),US generally asking for Forgiveness..OF OURSELVES unto God, did, and does not solve the consequence of the Penalty for sin..Like in secular court, your charge may be dismissed, but "Administrative Records still require all Police dpts,to record the arrest in their station.. (Psalm ch2) defines Jesus as God..God spoke this HIMSELF. (Exodus 3:14-15, God says to Moses..I AM, which in Hebrew is enunciated (Ehyeh)..(John8:58)Jesus tells the Pharisees..BEFORE ABRAHAM WAS,"I AM"..translated in Greek New Testament as, (ego eimi), to mean in English..I AM. Let us at least stay true to Language. Thx.

Goer, God is One God. Through the Bible, He shows us who He is and reveals aspects of His character. He is often called "Father" because He loves, guides, cares for, protects, and desires a relationship with us. We see His great love when He came to the earth, called Himself Jesus, lived the perfect life we could never live and took our punishment for sin. He rose from the dead, proving He is God and that the punishment for sin has been taken away if we believe in what He has done. Jesus and God are one and the same. When we believe in Him and what He has done, He puts his Spirit inside us so we may be directed of and lead by Him. Jesus is called the "Son" because He perfectly demonstrates who God is and is the very image of God in the flesh. Arabs are often called "sons of the desert" because they represent what a desert dweller looks like, acts like, etc... but we know the desert did not marry a woman and birth a race of people. Jesus is called the Son representing God in the flesh.

if god is a "father", then he is the son of a "father/god", and another "father/god", and another "father/god", and another "father/god" and so on.
This, my logic would say God is a human being like my father, who is a son of a father, and have a son.

how many gods if the cycle continue while the Abrahamic religions claim to believe only in one God, that is no God but God.
