Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?

The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, creator of the universe. A God who alone exists of Himself and is infinite in all perfections.

If the thoughts of Muslims are directed towards the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, then there can be only one conclusion.

For Christians, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is the same God, the God, the Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The Son was born of the Father before all ages and at a time that pleased the father, was sent to earth as the second Adam, to be born without the original sin of the first Adam.

The first Adam was instrumental in the fall of man, severing man's spirit from God.

That connection had to be re made and Jesus re made it.by laying down not only His physical life, but the life in His spirit also as an atonement for the sins of the world, following which, the Father raised Him from the dead, physically and spiritually.

In order for any living human spirit to be re connected to God, he or she must accept Jesus as Saviour. This is the will of the father.

Non acceptance of the death and resurrection of Jesus, make it impossible to commune spiritually with the one true God and eternal damnation will follow as night follows day.

Jesus said; "You neither know me nor my Father : if you had known me you should have known my Father".

God and man are spirit beings. "Let us make man in our image" the creator said. Notice the plurality in "let us". This is the Trinity.

Man can know God, only through a regenerated spirit and that occurs only by an act of faith i.e. acceptance of Jesus as Lord and Saviour.

Not to know that Jesus is Lord and Saviour is not to know God.

With reference to Pat Robinson's speech, I couldn't have said it better ! There is no conflict between my statements and those of Pat Robertson.
