Posted on 02/05/2016 8:49:55 AM PST by Jan_Sobieski
Islam teaches that Christians and Muslims worship the same god, the head of The Center on American-Islamic Relations wrote last week in defense of a suspended Wheaton College professor who asserted that notion on Facebook in December. In an op-ed condemning the Illinois Evangelical higher education institution for suspending and attempting to fire political science professor Dr. Larycia Hawkins for asserting that Christians and Muslims worship the same deity, CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad argued that the school's belief that the two religions don't worship the same God displays a level of "ignorance."
"It is clear that Wheaton College has the right to its own theological stance on the nature of God, but from an Islamic perspective, there is only one deity worshiped by Muslims, Christians and Jews," Awad asserted. "In fact, the Muslim declaration of faith (shahada) states: 'There is no god but God.' "Now one might claim that Muslims worship 'Allah,' not 'God,' but that would be in willful ignorance of the fact that 'Allah' is merely the Arabic translation for 'God' and that all Arabic-speaking Christians refer to 'Allah' in their prayers," Awad added. "Muslims commonly use either 'God' or 'Allah' when referring to the single deity. Islam's Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: 'Both in this world and in the Hereafter, I am the nearest of all people to Jesus, the son of Mary. The prophets are paternal brothers; their mothers are different, but their religion is one.'"
Awad continued by stating that it is revealed in the Quran that there is unity among the monotheistic faiths...

"there is only one deity worshiped by Muslims, Christians and Jews,".
Christians and Jews who follow the Bible, believe in YHWH, the God of the Bible that is a triune God (father, son, and spirit.) Muslims believe in a god that is a singular entity, that has no son. To believe that Allah has a son is the ultimate blasphemy in Islam and worthy of death. Then Mr. Awad outright lies when he says...
"the Muslim declaration of faith (Shahada) states: 'There is no god but God.'".
The Shahada states that there is not god but 'Allah', the moon god of the Nabataeans. Muslim apologists obscure the truth about Allah the moon god by continuously preach that 'Allah' is merely the Arabic translation for 'God' and that all Arabic-speaking Christians refer to 'Allah' in their prayers. Allah may be used as a name by a small group of Christians, but it is not the moon god of the Arabian desert. Mr Awad is disingenuous for he knows that Muslims would never use YHWH in place of Allah, for they are two separate gods entirely! Mr Awad's arguments would be laughable were they not so mainstream...most notably President Obama! This is the spirit of Antichrist...
1 John 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. 19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. 20 But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. 21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no * lie is of the truth. 22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is * the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
Either that Muslim is completely ignorant or he’s purposely trying to deceive Christians...or both.
How’s about he take a dirt nap and see for his own self.
This Muslim doesn’t even seem to know his own religion. Christianity teaches that Jesus is divine, Islam does not, therefore the two religions do not worship the same God. Christianity is Trinitarian, Islam is not.
He only quoted the first part of the Shahada, he deliberately omitted the second part because Muhammed makes it very clear Jesus is not a supernatural being as is believed by the Christians.
Below is the complete Shahada the Muslims say to become a Muslim
"I bear witness that there is no god except Allah"
"And I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah."
Islam worships a god of love and peace when pigs fly.
Umm, yeah..... Nope. They worship Satan, which is pretty clear if one spends an honest hour reading about it.
On my better days I pray for their souls to be reckoned to Christ.
SOP for the left,
deny and obfuscate until you’ve accomplished your agenda.
Kinda conveinient oversight , don't ya think ?
That is what Taqiyya is all about -- purposeful misinformation
which makes the whole statement alie !
And the "Father of All Lies" is who ....?
My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.
Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.
He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.
He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.
But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.
I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake.
I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.
I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.
I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.
And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.
These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.
But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.
If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.
“Islam teaches that Christians and Muslims worship the same god...”
No it doesn’t, because Muslims do not believe that Christ was God.
Many verses in the quran clearly demonstrate this to be a crock of shi’ite, and awad to be one of that same fecal matter.
Allah has no son and wants your sons to die for him. God sent His only Son to die for you. Big difference
The “Allah” of Islam is described as a deceiver. The true God of the Bible cannot tell a lie. Case closed.
I think they actually believe it. If they didn't, they would have to address the question of which is the true God, and that violates the Koran, which states that there is only one god and also states that He is the God of the Jews.
