Allah IS for Muslims - YHWH IS for Jews / Christians

in response to reader comment: Confusing to Muslims?

Look at this way - what if Paul (the apostle to the gentiles) used the NAME ZEUS to identify the Christian God simply because it would be more acceptable to those he was ministering to? Would that not cause a great deal of confusion for both belivers and nonbelievers? Of course it would.

The NAME ALLAH belongs to ISLAM and to Muslims. Christians and Jews should not use the NAME ALLAH in reference to their God. Jews (in the Torah and Joshua) are specifically told not to have the NAME of FALSE GODS on their lips. Jews and Christians worship the LORD God - His NAME is YHWH - Amen.
