The God of the Bible is very, no make that vastly, different from the god, Allaah, of the Qur'an

Our Father, the God of the Holy Bible, (that is the TaNaKh / Old and New Testaments, absent of the Apocrypha), is a Trinity. [1]  The God of the Bible loves unbelievers. [2]  We can call God of the Bible "Father." [3]  Allah of the Qur'an, in Sura 9:29 [i]  commands Muslims to violently subjugate nonbelievers.

In Sura 3:54 Allaah is called the greatest of "deceivers" although it's usually translated as schemer or plotter. [4]  In contrast, the Bible does not describe God in such a way but rather refers to Satan as the "father of lies." [5]

[1] – Genesis 1:2, and 1:26 & 27, Matthew 28:19
[2] – 2 Peter 3:9
[3] – Isaiah 63:16-19, Deuteronomy 32:6 & Isaiah 64:8
[4] – Sura 3:54 -, see also Sura 4:142 –    “… it is He {Allaah} Who deceives them.” - “Hilali-Khan 4:142
[5] – John 8:44 & Genesis 3:4

[i]   – “Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” –Hilali-Khan 9:29

Emphasis in BOLD ITALICIZED CAPS mine.

Sura 9:33 – “It is He Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad SAW) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam), to make it superior over all religions even though the Mushrikun (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) hate (it).” – “Hilali-Khan 9:33

Emphasis in BOLD ITALICIZED CAPS mine.

See also Hilali-Khan 9:73, Hilali-Khan 9:111, Hilali-Khan 9:123, Hilali-Khan Hilali-Khan 98:6 and Hilali-Khan 48:29, as they all promote hatred and violence.

Note here how in Sura 98:6 Allaah tells us that: “…they who disbelieved among the People of the Scripture (Christians and Jews) and the polytheists (Trinitarian Christians) will be in the fire of Hell, abiding eternally therein. Those are the worst of creatures.” – 

Emphasis in BOLD ITALICIZED CAPS mine, emphasis in parentheses () added by me, for clarity.

It is my contention that once one reviews the content noted above, and is careful to review said content in full and proper context, one cannot help but conclude that the god Allaah of the Qur’an is, in fact, nothing like the God of the Holy Bible.  One, the god of Islam’s Qur’an is a created being, and the other, the God (Christ) of the Judeo-Christian is the Almighty, Omniscient, and Omnipotent Creator of everything.

Some will suggest, or have already suggested, that Allaah is merely Arabic for God, and also that Isa is merely Arabic for Jesus.  While this is indeed true, to a point, the simple fact remains that the god of Islam’s Qur’an, Allaah is nothing like the God (Allaah in Arabic) of the Holy Bible.  Neither is the Isa of Islam’s Qur’an remotely similar to the Jesus (Isa in Arabic) of the Holy Bible. 

It’s really very similar to the vast difference between either the jesus’ of the Mormons and / or Jw’s.  In the case of the Mormons, their jesus christ is A) a half brother to Lucifer, B) a created being and C) now an exalted being, god.  In the case of the JW’s, their jesus christ is also Michael the Archangel, he is also, according to their version of the bible, a god {John 1:1: NWT}, and also there is no trinity or even personage of the Holy Spirit within the JW’s religion.  Instead what the JW’s teach about the Holy Spirit, has the Holy Spirit relegated to the dark recesses of the “creative power” somehow of the father and son working together.

No one who understands Biblical Christianity would recognize either the JW’s or Mormons as bonā fidē Christians.  Yet to many an onlooker, as both the JW’s and Mormons throw around the name “jesus christ” so very authoritatively, the JW’s and Mormons are just another branch of Christianity.  Such is the case and argument against Islam, the god of Islam’s Qur’an Allaah, and the Isa of the Qur’an, when compared with the God, Jesus Christ / Yeshua Ha Mashiach (Rabbi Yeshua Bar Yosef) of the TaNaKh and New Testament, a.k.a. the Holy Bible.

For one to deny that the god of Islam is indeed vastly different from the God of the Holy Bible, one must either be wholly ignorant of what the Qur’an and Hadith’s teach, or wilfully blind.  Ignorance is one thing, however if one does in fact posses even some basic knowledge of Islam, the Qur’an and Hadith’s, and yet remains convinced that the god of Islam’s Qur’an and the God of the Judeo-Christian’s Holy Bible is the same… well suffice it to say, said person must either be in denial or wilfully blind.

Know Jesus, know peace whereas no Jesus, no peace” 

How does one get to “know” Jesus?  Simple, invite Him into your heart, as Jesus says: “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.” [Revelations 3:20 NIV]  How can we be assured that this Jesus stuff means anything, anything at all?  Well because the Bible tells us so, as the Apostle Paul wrote:

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” [Romans 10:9-10 NIV]

And for those of you who say to me, I can’t be bothered reading the Bible, “it’s confusing” or “it’s a waste of my time”, may I draw your attention to what the Bible says about wisdom: “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” [Proverbs 9:10 NIV]

If nothing else, PLEASE read two chapters from the Bible – (don’t own one, sorry NO excuse, if you’re reading this, you can access this: John 3 and John 14!

John 3:16 says:  “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

And John 14:6 says: “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Well that’s it, that’s Da Bauz’s Take on, Allaah of Islam vastly different from G-d (Christ) of the Judeo-Christian Faith – this 28th day of October 2012 © 2012, All Rights Reserved. wr (Da Bauz, Christian Zionist N’ “creationist” too).  With credit and much thanks too, Marie Wood and Mari B.
