Are Christians and Muslims serving the same God?

August 29th, 2010 Comments off

Too often, people say to me “Christians & Muslims, we are all serving the same God”

Lets look a bit deeper at that thought to see if it lines up with the character of God, and His word/bible/truth.

We can readily see how most if not all of the worlds Muslims view Israel today……….

They seem to hate her and would want to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth.

The Christians in contrast generally have a respect and love for Israel as that is where their saviour comes from.
Indeed Jesus Christ tells us in John 4 that salvation is of the Jews/Israelites………

Plus.

Isaiah 1:4 Ah, sinful nation,
a people loaded with guilt,
a brood of evildoers,
children given to corruption!
They have forsaken the LORD;
they have spurned the Holy One of Israel
and turned their backs on him.

See God even calls Himself the God of Israel.

Then the thought is this………..If Christians, and Muslims are all serving the same God, then why such radical differences placed on the value of Israel?

If we are all drawing closer to God/taking on the nature/character of God more and more; then how can one love Israel so (the Christians) , and the other be so filled with hatred for another race?

Could it be as Jesus Christ said, Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. ?

There it is folks there is only one way to the Father, only one way to draw close to God, only one way to devolop into children of God, only one way to take on the character/nature of God………………That way is by receiving Christ as Saviour.

So we as His children have a big responsibility to love Muslims and to pray for their salvation and to share our lives and our Saviour with them…….

Amen
