Muslim God and Christian God, the Same

QUESTION: Is the Muslim god and Christian God the same?


Is the Muslim God and the Christian God the same? Some say Christianity and Islam are 'sister' religions. But the answer is no, they are not the same gods, nor are they 'sister' religions. Comparing the nature, character, the instructions and teachings of each, and usually the practices of their believers, we can quickly see the differences.
  • Christianity is based on God sending His Son, Jesus, to atone for the sins of mankind (John 3:16-17).

  • Jesus is part of the triune God, come in the flesh (Emmanuel means God with us) to earth for this purpose through His crucifixion and resurrection. (No other deity can claim this.)

  • The Quran's Surah 17 111 says: "Praise be to Allah, who begets no son, and has no partner in (His) domain..."

  • Surah 4 171 says: "O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor, say of Allah aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) an apostle of Allah and His Word..."

  • The Bible also says that to obtain Salvation (from sin and eternal hell) that we can simply accept God's gift of mercy and grace for forgiveness through Jesus.

    Romans 3:23: "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus."

    Romans 5:10: "For if when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life."

    Acts 4:12: "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."

  • Whereas, the Quran states:

    Surah 23 102, "Then those whose balance (of good deeds) is heavy -- they will attain salvation. . ."
The Bible tells us in Galatians 2:16 that it is not by works or any good deeds that we obtain Salvation. "...but by the faith of Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ and not by the works of the law..."

Another important distinction is that throughout the Quran, the teachings are to destroy all others outside of Islam in the name of Allah. In comparison, the Christian God is a god of love. Jesus tells us in Luke 6:27-28: "But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you and pray for them which despitefully use you." In addition, the Muslims despise Jews, but the Christian Bible says that the Jews are the apple of God's eye and that whoever blesses her will be blessed and whoever curses her will be cursed. (Genesis 12:2-3)

These are fundamental distinctions! The Muslim god and the Christian God are not the same.

What do you think?
We have all sinned and deserve God’s judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
