The god of Islam...

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God? - Continued

Submitted by Sound (Sri Lanka), Sep 26, 2006 at 12:56

As a born again Christian who knows the Koran well enough to comment on it, I say categorically that the god of the Koran is not the Almighty God of the Holy Bible.

First of all, the God of the Bible is the heavenly Father of the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ said so on many occasions. Is there any teaching in the Koran where this is taught? There is no such teaching!

Next: The Almighty God of the Bible is a God who wins victories in behalf of His people. Time and time again He won victories for His own. A shining and very famous example is the victory He won for Israel by killing the giant Philistine, Goliath, by using a small stone in a slingshot in the hands of a puny shepherd-boy called David. Where can one read that the god of the Koran wins victories in behalf of his people. The truth is that the god of the Koran requires Muslims to win victories for him while he "folds his arms on his chest" and watches, not even raising a finger to help his people. The "Six-day War" of Israel with the Arabs is a very good example. In just 6 days tiny Israel routed the combined Arab armies and won more land than they (Jews) ever had before.

Another point is that the god of Islam is never mentioned as being Almighty in the Koran. He is only mighty, and thus no better than the Satan mentioned in the Bible. Satan, in the Bible, is mighty, but never Almighty.

The Koran says that it is impossible for the god of the Koran to have a son. The Bible says that the God of the Bible had a Son named Jesus Christ. Since the god of the Koran is incapable of producing a son without having sexual intercourse with a woman, as the Koran teaches, it means that he is not almighty as the God of the Bible is.

I can go on and on with this "thread," but the above alone should be sufficient to prove my point!
