Debate: Should Christians be more forthright in stating that Allah is not the same being as the Judeo-Christian God?
Muslims regularly state that Allah is the same being as the Judeo-Christian God. This is at least partly to make proselytizing easier. How should Christians deal with these claims?--Boreas talk 16:55, 22 May 2010 (EDT)
Allah is the same as the Judeo-Christian God. The word 'Allah' means "He who is above all else" in Arabic. However, the difference between Muslims and Jews and Christians is that they follow the Qu'ran as the true word of God. There is a difference in the central text of the religions, not God himself.

- It's a different interpretation of the god of Abraham. so es they are following the same god, but with a different interpretation then Christians do (the Islamic version is much more closer to the Jewish one in a number of aspects)--SeanS 08:43, 28 May 2011 (EDT)
- Well, if you ask me, it's kind of a moot point whether or not Allah is the same thing as the Christian God, because Christians consider Islam's teachings to be false anyway...so really, whether or not Allah and the Judeo-Christian God are the same thing is sorta an unanswerable question, because the entire belief system revolving around Allah is false...eh it's confusing. But do you get my point? --StoryMaker 20:04, 21 July 2011 (EDT)
The god of Islam and the God of the Bible are two completely different gods. They are different in multiple different ways. For example, there is no Trinity in Islam and Jesus is not God. Also, probably the biggest difference is Allah requires works and good deeds for salvation, while the God of the Bible saves those whom He has chosen by His grace alone through faith in His Son who died and rose again, apart from anything we have done. --1990'sguy (talk) 21:41, 3 November 2016 (EDT)
