Islam does NOT worship the same god as Christians and Jews. Allah is nothing like Jehovah. Christ taught a God of love. Mohammed taught one of domination. Where the Bible declares the equality of all mankind including women:
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:28)
The Koran declares the servants of Allah are more evolved than other humans and that unbelievers are hardly better than animals. Women are seen as inferior, even to infidel men.
Koran 3: 110 Ye are the best of peoples evolved for mankind enjoining what is right forbidding what is wrong and believing in Allah. If only the People of the Book had faith it were best for them; among them are some who have faith but most of them are perverted transgressors.
And We have certainly created for Hell many of the jinn and mankind. They have hearts with which they do not understand, they have eyes with which they do not see, and they have ears with which they do not hear. Those are like livestock; rather, they are more astray. It is they who are the heedless. Surely the vilest of animals in Allah’s sight are those who disbelieve (Koran 8:55) They are the worst of creatures. (Koran 98:6) …he is like the dog; whether you pet him or scold him, he pants. Such is the example of people who reject our proofs. (Koran 7:176)
The Koran provides in chapter 4, verse 34 the proper way to deal with disobedient wives, which includes neglect and beatings, while the Bible advises:
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it… So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. … let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself…. (Ephesians 5:25-33)
Islam considers Jesus as merely a prophet and not even the greatest of those (that’s Mohammed) while Christianity is entirely based on the idea Jesus is the actual divine Son of God. Those two beliefs are mutually incompatible and if you have any doubts on this, the Koran specifically states many times that Allah has no son and such a thing is not even possible. (Koran chapter 6:101, 17:111, 18:4-6, 23:91 etc.) Thus the Koran specifically attacks the cardinal belief of Christianity, not just once but many times. Islam and Christianity are NOT compatible and do NOT worship the same God.
But comparing their accounts of the Apocalypse demonstrates the most revealing proof of the actual relationship of Islam to Christianity.
In Islam they await a messiah, the Mahdi, who will someday return, unite the world under his rule for seven years, leading the Faithful in a Holy War against the Jews and Christians who will be eradicated from the Earth, after which will dawn a new age of peace and prosperity.
Without a close examination, this appears at first glance to be rather similar to the End Time events predicted by the Christian Apostle John in the biblical book of Revelation. But the Devil’s in the details – literally.
Biblical prophecy indicates at the end of time a spiritual leader will arise and unite the world under his personal dictatorial rule. He will then proceed to persecute Jews and Christians for seven years, martyring them by the millions. So far this sounds exactly like the account in the Koran. The difference is the identification of this world ruler. In Islam he is their Messiah, the Mahdi, the chosen of Allah. In the Biblical account he is the Antichrist, a false messiah ginned up by Satan. His domination is temporary, triggering the Wrath of God, which culminates in the Second Coming of Christ, the real Messiah.
Islam’s ultimate hero is Christianity’s greatest villain, a false Christ designed to deceive the world and seize ultimate power in a worldwide empire.
It is an Islamic lie that their god is the same as our God. But then one expects lies from their god, the Father of Lies.
