Who is the god of the Muslims?
Larry G. writes:
We often hear that Jews, Christians, and Muslims worship the same God. This is obviously false. As described by the Koran and other Islamic sacred texts, Allah, the god of the Muslims, is the complete opposite of the God of Abraham and of the Triune God. The God of Abraham makes the Israelites, later called the Jews, his chosen people, while Allah in the fiercest terms commands Muslims to kill all the Jews. Indeed, Allah commands even the forces of nature to assist in killing all remaining Jews on the Last Day. As for Christianity, the Triune God tells us to love our neighbor, while Allah commands Muslims to kill or enslave all non-Muslims who refuse to submit themselves to Islam.LA replies:
Before answering, I would add to your argument the fact that the Koran teaches that the most evil idea in the world is the belief that God has a Son. Apart from the possible exception of the existence of the Jewish people, nothing is more disgusting to Islam than the Christian belief in Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son of God, because, as Allah says through his prophet Muhammad, it violates the absolute unity of God. So when Allah/Muhammad calls Jesus a Muslim prophet, that is not, as many naive Westerners believe, an ecumenic gesture to Christians, but an aggressive act of incorporating Christianity into Islam while pretending to be engaged in friendly outreach. It remains the case that Christians who continue to believe in Jesus Christ as the son of God, are enemies of Islam who must be subdued or killed.
