This month, I want to show how different the God of the Bible is from Islam’s Allah. Far too many Christians, who ought to know better, assume that God and Allah are the same person. They most certainly are not.
As I noted in a previous post, God is jealous, meaning protective, of his people who he loves. He chose Israel out of all the peoples of the world to be the ones through whom his beloved son would be born. As he spoke through one of his prophets in Zechariah 1:14 (KJV), “So the angel that communed with me said unto me, Cry thou, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy.”
The Queen of Sheba noticed God’s love being lavished on Israel and said to Solomon in 1 Kings 10:9 (KJV), “Blessed be the LORD thy God, which delighted in thee, to set thee on the throne of Israel: because the LORD loved Israel for ever, therefore made he thee king, to do judgment and justice.”
And as Christ’s most impulsive disciple noted in 1 Peter 2:9 (KJV), “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:”
But the Qu’ran refutes this by saying in sura 3:64, (translated by Ali ‘Imran) “Say, “O People of the Book, come to terms common between us and you: that we worship none but Allah, and that we associate nothing with Him, and that none of us takes others as lords besides Allah.” And if they turn away, say, “Bear witness that we have submitted.:
This verse denies that Jesus and the Holy Spirit are divine. Why would God say they were before this and then deny it? Either he’s inconsistent or Allah isn’t the God of creation.
The Bible shows in Malachi 3:6 (KJV) that, “For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.”
Here is additional proof that Allah can’t be God. Why would he love Christians when sura 3:151 states, “We will throw terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they attribute to Allah partners for which He revealed no sanction. Their lodging is the Fire. Miserable is the lodging of the evildoers.”
I could list so many other examples of the vast difference between God and Allah but I’ll save them for my next book called You Think You’re Going to Heaven? People need to realize that ONLY in Christ is there salvation from hell. And before our Lord was born, people such as Abraham were saved by their trust in God, not their own works.
