Is the God of Islam the God of the Bible?
by Pastor Ricky Kurth
“Is the god of Islam the God of the Bible?"
There are countless ways to show that the god of Islam is not the God of the Bible, but since there are two faiths that have come from the Bible, Judaism and Christianity, let's just consider two verses that show that the god of Islam differs from the God of both of these Bible faiths.
First, remember that the Lord told the Samaritan woman, "Ye worship ye know not what" (John 4:22). There was no creed on the planet at that time that was more similar to Judaism than the religion practiced by the Samaritans. There were countless similarities between the two faiths, and yet it was the Lord's assertion that the Samaritans didn't know what they were worshipping, any more than the pagans who worshipped "THE UNKNOWN GOD" at Athens (Acts 17:23). This indicated that, in His opinion, they did not worship the same God. So in view of the countless differences between Islam and Judaism, it is difficult to see how it can be said that Muslims worship the God of Judaism.
To this must be added the testimony of the Apostle Paul, who declared that "the things that the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice unto devils, and not to God" (I Cor. 10:20). From these words it seems clear that the gods of the different religions of the Gentiles were not the God of the Christian faith that God used him to establish here on earth
