Why Is The Bible The Same God Of The Koran?

It would be convenient if I could mesh together the Bible and the Koran. It would be convenient if I could say that the God of the Bible is the same God of the Koran. There would be a lot less tension on both sides for some. I simply cannot say that to be true. Through my research on both sides I am convinced that the God of the Bible is not the same God of the Koran. People have worshipped gods since human existence began, but to say that Allah is the same God as Yahweh Elohim of the Bible is just a false statement; There is no way they can be the same God due to the violence in the Bible and the Koran, Yahweh and Allah swearing by different things, Allah being a deceiver, and the Korans belief on the holy trinity.
First, let’s compare the

“When God made his promise to Abraham, since there was no one greater for him to swear by, he swore by himself (Hebrews 6:13).” “People swear by someone greater than themselves, and the oath confirms what is said and puts an end to all argument (Hebrews 6:16).” “Every time he makes a pledge he swears only by himself to insure believers that he will do all that he promises (Shamoun 17).” Allah in the Koran swears by things lower than him. “I swear by this city, Makkah (Surah 90:1).” “By the star when it descends (Surah 53:1).” “By the night when it covers; and [by] the day when it appears; And [by] He who created the male and female (Surah 92:1-3).” Allah is swearing by the city, by the stars, and by the creation. This shows very clearly that they are not the same God because Allah is willing to swear by anything. Yahweh only swears by himself because no one and nothing is greater than him. This makes it very difficult for Allah and Yahweh to be the same …show more content…
“A mediator, however, implies more than one party; but God is one (Galatians 3:20).” The Bible says that this God exists through three persons. The trinity is made up of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. “Who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father (1 Peter 1:2)…” “While we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ (Titus 2:13).” “Then Peter said, ‘Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit… You have not lied just to human beings but to God’ (Acts 5:3-4).” Those last three verses show the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; this is showing that they are all One. Allah is neither the father, son, nor Holy Spirit. “Say, ‘He is Allah, [who is] One, Allah, the Eternal Refuge. He neither begets nor is born, nor is there to Him any equivalent’ (Surah 112:1-5).” “Allah does not ‘beget’ meaning that Allah has no children either in a spiritual or carnal sense. Thus, Allah can never be the Father. Nor does he allow himself to be ‘begotten’, i.e. does not take on human nature such as God the Son did when he became man for our salvation. Finally, in orthodox Islam the Holy Spirit is not God, but the angel Gabriel. This fact separates Allah from ever possibly being the same God that Christians worship (Shamoun,
