God and Allah, Are They The Same?

This will be the first in a two part discussion. You must understand Islam and what it really is before you can honestly get at the answers to your questions.
Millions have been led astray because they did not take the time to find out.

In this country and around the world we have many to ‘thank’ for the ingenious deceptions and clever lies handed to us as truth, including some of our most trusted.
Do not be deceived! Discover the answers and arm yourself with the truth!

Recently a question was asked of me, “do you feel that we worship the same God as the Muslims?”
In a word, I can answer emphatically NO. This usually generates heated discussions among both Muslims and Christians.

There seems to be a lot of confusion among Christians regarding Islam.
Do not be confused or assume anything until you have spent some time reading and discovering the answer(s) for yourself.

Like you I knew very little about Islam or Allah.
After September 11, 2001 (and supported by prior events which I won’t list here), I decided to find out what this so called “religion of peace” was all about and discover exactly who this “Allah” was.

The Arabic definition of the word Islam is submission. Islam does not mean peace.

The Arabic Word “Allah” and its Use in Christian Witness to Muslims.

Another in depth discussion titled “Blasphemizing the Bible”.

After many, many hours of study and research, the answer to the question asked above became clear to me.Perhaps the most convincing argument came from ex-Muslims themselves. Many experts have written expose’s on the subject; however, the question still comes up in discussions.

When I hear or read about Christians stating that we should accept Islam as a religion and believe that Allah is the same God Christians worship I am appalled. It is perhaps one of the most misleading and deceptive aspects of Islam and is not without motive. The followers of Islam would like very much for you to accept their claim and hope that you won’t take the time to find out the truth.

“Allah originally was the god of Sin( a pagan god) but changed to deity status by Mohammad. Many of my Jewish friends will state that Allah is the manifestation of evil and is inspired by Satan to deceive and lead people astray.”

It would not be possible for me to even try an attempt to convince you that my answer has merit in a few short sentences. The answer did not come to me easily as I struggled with my own misperceptions about this. Many hours of study and research was required to gain an intellectually honest picture of what Islam is about.

I began to ask questions from people who already knew the answers but I still needed convincing to allay my fear of condemning another religion that apparently prayed to the same God I did.

“Allah is not God. Allah is the figment of Muhammad’s imagination. He was an Arab idol who had three daughters. Muhammad used this Pagan deity to advance his goal of domination. It was easier for him to use a known Pagan god than introduce a completely new one. So he said this big idol is the creator and the same god spoken by Jesus and Moses. Nothing is farther from the truth. Allah and Jehovah are not one and the same. The god of Jesus is the god of love. Allah is the god of hate.”

The fact is we don’t pray to the same God, nor is Islam even a religion as we understand it here in the west. So get that straight from the beginning.

Prior to my writing this I posed this same question to a friend who has a much more detailed and in depth knowledge of this subject. He has attempted the same thing I am many times, here is his response;

It needs to be done. My own attempts have not borne

Problem: Monotheism.
There is only one God.
Allah is God.
Jehovah is God.
Allah & Jehovah must be the same

They can not conceive of the possibility that Allah
is an impotent idol.

The fact that Allah & his slaves are hateful
can not penetrate their fact shields.

The two theologies are diametrically opposed, it is
not possible for both to be simultaneously true. Islam is 100% predestination,
lacking free will.

Knowing full well that this article will likely generate controversy and opposition to my stance, I will submit web site links that provide an in depth and time consumming study of Islam.

Perhaps the most telling evidence can be found in the Qu’ran(Koran) itself.
This was sent to me in an e-mail from a fellow traveler and friend;

Qur'an 5:72 "They are surely infidels who blaspheme and say: 'God
is Christ, the Messiah, the son of Mary.' But the Messiah only said: 'O
Children of Israel! Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.'"

Qur'an 5:73 "They are surely disbelievers who blaspheme and say: 'God
is one of three in the Trinity for there is no Ilah (God) except One, Allah. If
they desist not from saying this (blasphemy), verily a grievous penalty will befall
them - the disbelievers will suffer a painful doom."

Qur'an 5:75 "The Messiah, Christ, the son of Mary, was no more than a messenger;
many were the messengers that passed away before him. His mother was a woman of
truth. They had to eat their food. See how Allah does make His signs clear to them;
yet see in what ways they are deluded!"

Qur'an 5:116 "And behold! Allah will say: 'O Jesus, the son of Mary!
Did you say unto men, worship me and my mother as two gods besides Allah?' He
will say: 'Glory to You! Never could I utter what I had no right."

Before I begin this list I must ask you some questions.

Can you spend the time to study and read the many articles listed at these web sites?
Will you read with an open mind and in an honest attempt to find the truth?
Will you pray sincerely for enlightenment from the God of Abraham?

Non-Christians, secularists, anti-God, etc., etc. will challenge this article but this isn’t for them. If you don’t believe in God or have a limited knowledge of Christianity do not attempt to confuse this discussion with your diatribe.

Having said that I know there are those arrogant and ignorant enough to try. So I will issue a warning. You get one chance to make an intellectually honest comment, failure to do so will result in banning any further reponses from you. Period.
Not fair? Infringing on your freedom of speech rights?

Go tell it to someone who will sympathize. I will not.

My beliefs will not be compromised nor will I make concessions to you.
In fact I don’t really care what argument you may bring, I have heard them all before. Nothing you can say will convince me I am wrong in my beliefs.

If on the other hand you desire to know the truth and can be open minded then read on.
Those of us that know the answers have a moral obligation to inform and perhaps educate. But it is up to you the reader to put in the time to study.
Reading is only a very small part of the solution. To achieve understanding you must also have a high percentage of comprehension.

This article is not for the “drive-by’s” who assume they will get their answer in 10 minutes or who may attempt to discredit this article. Nothing you can bring to the discussion will sway me to change my view. Many have tried….they failed miserably.
I’ve been threatened with everything including death and will NOT concede….EVER.

I will not submit and will not accept Islam in any way.
So don’t waste my time or your’s.

The first site is one I have used extensively for research over the years.

Here then is the opening statement from FaithFreedom.org ;

"O ye who believe! Ask not questions about things which if made plain to you, may cause you trouble. Some people before you did ask such questions, and on that account lost their faith." (Quran. 5:101-102)

Faith Freedom International is a grassroots movement of those who asked prohibited questions and on that account lost their faith. We came to see that Islam is a hoax, an imperialistic ideology, disguised as religion, invented by a narcissist for his own personal gains. We found out that Muhammad was a conman, a ventriloquist who projected his own words into his imaginary dummy deity to fool the gullible. With a promise of a carnal and orgiastic paradise (just for men) and threat of hell he goaded his foolhardy followers to raid and slay innocent people under pretext that they were infidels. He and his merry band of terrorists looted villages and cities, raped the women, and enslaved all who were not killed outright. To this day, Muslim jihadis are following the footsteps of their prophet who bragged, "I have been made victorious with terror" . No other cause is responsible for more deaths than Islam.

Our goal is to expose this religion of terror and warn of its danger. We also want to help Muslims see the absurdity of it, end their "us" vs. "them" ethos and embrace the human race in amity. No one is their enemy; it is they who are the enemy to everyone else. We strive for the unity of mankind through the elimination of Islam, the most insidious doctrine of hate. Humanity is one. Let not charlatans like Hitler and Muhammad divide us with their big lies.

Islam can't be reformed, but it can be eradicated.
It can't be molded, but it can be smashed. It is rigid, but brittle. That is why Muslims can't tolerate criticism of it. To eradicate Islam, all we have to do is tell the truth. It's that simple. This was not possible before, but with the help of the Internet, it is now. The insanity of this creed is so glaringly obvious, it boggles the mind. All it takes to see that is to read the Qur’an.

The truth about Islam is out. It's here on this site. With truth and reason alone we can demolish this tall tower of lies. If you help spread the truth we can bring this house of cards down sooner than anyone can imagine. With truth, the decent Muslims will leave Islam and with each Muslim who leaves, we gain a new soldier in our fight against terrorism. We are growing exponentially.

The days of Islam are numbered and better days are ahead. Many of us will see that day. Meanwhile, we may have to go through dreadful times. A storm is approaching. It will wipe out Islam, but it will also destroy millions of lives in its path. We can avoid this Armageddon if we stop lying. Islam is not a religion of peace. It is evil. It is a dangerous cult of death and terror. The proof is here. Let us tell the truth. Save lives, not lies.

All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing. Do something and save the world. To become a soldier in this army of light, all you have to do is face the truth.

This site exists to help. Help spread the truth. Let it reach the world. It will do its work.


Dear Muslim: If you love your faith and want to keep it, leave this site NOW. We have set thousands of Muslims free. Some of them were more faithful and more knowledgeable than you. Many of them are now helping other Muslims in their journey to freedom.

Truth is very powerful and you may not have the strength to resist it. This site has the potential to undo Islam. This is no hyperbole. It is a reality that is already happening. A silent revolution is taking place, unprecedented in history. If you don't leave Islam, chances are that your children will. The sun of truth has dawned. Your only chance to remain a Muslim is to keep your head deep in the sand. The more you learn the truth the more you will lose your faith. Truth will set you free, but if you fear freedom leave this site NOW. However, if you feel valiant, meet my challenge and I will remove this site.

Follow the clickable links below the statement at the web site to continue your truth seeking journey. Please allow time to read and comprehend. The answer(s) is(are)there.

My suggestion would be to start at the FAQ section but you are free to choose any starting point.

To understand a little about my beliefs you may want to visit this site; Abrahamic Faith
“Its a package, take it and be guaranteed eternity with Him or remain outside to suffer eternally. Choice is clear, either you have the Son or you have nothing!”

There are no easy answers but the answers are there if you are diligent and faithful.

This is not about shunning Muslims or condemning them, in fact, as Christians we should pray for their enlightenment and discovery of the truth.

God will provide answers if you will but allow Him some of your precious time and pray often with sincerety and an open mind.

May the God of Abraham bless you in your journey to the light.
