Are Yahweh and Allah the Same God? — 3 Comments

  1. Excellent explanation using Santa vs. St. Nicholas comparison. Also, it is to be noted that the god Allah doesn’t have an only begotten Son who happens to be God incarnate, or God in human flesh, the second person of the Godhead who by himself gave His life as a ransom for the sins of all people. HUGE difference!

  2. So if the God of Islam and Yahweh are not the same is the God that the Jews worship is he the same as the one in Christianity. If not why and if so why.

    • Great question. Yes, Jews and Christians believe in and worship the same God. Of course you will find those on the fringe for which that might not be true – for example, the heretic Marcion of Sinope believed that the God of the Old Testament was not the same as the God of the New Testament. Jews and Christians may differ with each other and even among themselves in their understanding of him, but the God of the Jews and the God of the Christians is the same God – Yahweh.

      My basis for saying this is that both Jews and Christians accept the Hebrew Bible (the Tanakh or Old Testament) to be inspired Holy Writ. Islam on the other hand considers the Torah to be corrupted, along with the New Testament, and that the Quran sets the record straight.

      That is an overly simplified and incomplete explanation, but this is the main reason I say Christians and Jews worship Yahweh, and the Muslim Allah is a “fictitious aberration.” As I stated in my post, the God of the Bible and the God of the Quran are not the same.
