Allah is not the God of the Bible

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?

Submitted by John Gulick (United States), Jun 28, 2005 at 12:23

"Christ, the son of Mary [note: not as the "son of God"], Was no more than A Messenger; many were Messengers that passed away Before him [here, equating Jesus with mere Messengers, or perhaps prophets, but certainly not the Son of God]. Sura 5:75, Abdullah Yusef Ali, 10th ed. reprint, 2001. "The similitude of Jesus Before Allah is as that of Adam; He created him from dust . . . ". Sura 3:59. A subsequent "created" man, like Adam. Not God. Clear enough?

However, "And the angel [being Gabriel, the alleged same angel with 600 wings (!--count 'em, Muhammed) that allegedly dictated the "Holy Koran" to Muhammed] answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God" (Luke 1:35, KJV). The Scriptures refer to Christ as "the seed of the WOMAN," knowing that no woman has any seed. The seed has to come from the male; Christ, as the Word incarnate (John 1:14), in an INCORRUPTIBLE SEED (1 Pet. 1:23) not like unto "corruptible MAN" (Rom. 1:23). Not like Adam, a created man who was not the son of God.

Either God showed up in the flesh, or he did not. At this point in history, that makes you either believe God's inspired Scriptures testifying of himself in the flesh, or Allah's declaration that he did not visit in the flesh nor will he return once again. Is is not time to make a choice, or otherwise force equation of these two disparate positions?

The "Holy" Koran indicates there WAS AND IS NO SON OF GOD in the flesh at any time.

Muhammed thus cuts off the Issac line through David to Jesus by God acting through Mary, and substitutes the illegitimate Ishmael to substitute himself for Jesus Christ as the New Testatment "Comforter". Jesus would then have be the son of Joseph (a corruptible man, dead and buried without resurrection), and therefore could not be the son of God. What does that make Muhammed?

You are warned about such non-scripture by Paul when God cursed Muhammed (and any angel with whom he was consorting) for preaching "another gospel" (Gal. 1:8-9). Clear enough? ...
