Gods at War: Christianity and Islam

Muslims do not worship the God of the Bible. The God of the Bible is a Trinity, while the god of Islam is a unitarian god.

Further, since law reveals the character of the lawgiver, the divergent laws of Scripture and the Koran represent different deities. The use of violence as a means of spreading Islam versus proclaiming the Word as a means of fulfilling the Great Commission stands as just one major difference.

Another difference resides in Islam's acceptance of pedophilia. Ditto "honor" killing and other abominations.

Like all false gods from the time of the serpent in Eden, Islam's Allah seeks to displace the God of Scripture. Unlike the followers of Jesus Christ, however, the followers of the demon-spirit called Allah, however, labor under a distinct disadvantage.

You can see that disadvantage in the trustworthiness -- or lack thereof -- of their god.

Muslims worship a God who is not only unknowable, but also unpredictable. If he chose to be hateful and inhumane, that would not contradict his essential character because he has none. . . . Nearly twenty passages in the Qur’an teach that Allah leads men astray. . . . That Allah is essentially unknowable means one can never be sure how Allah will act or what he will do. (From Free Sunday School Lessons)

The Muslim has no assurance that His god will not deceive him. And we understand why -- they serve the father of lies.

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. . . . When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. (John 8:44)

Contrast that with the surety of God's covenant with His people. 

Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: (Hebrews 6:17-18)

Kenneth L. Gentry has defined covenant thus:

[A] legal bond which establishes a favorable relation between parties based on certain specified terms, and which promises blessings for faithful adherence to those terms, while threatening curses for man's unfaithful departure therefrom. (He Shall Have Dominion, p. 106)

Thus, our God has freely bound Himself to us covenantally in and through the shed blood of His Son. We can fully trust that He will accomplish exactly what He has promised -- no lies or crossed fingers.

Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. (Hebrews 13:20-21)

Disciples of Islam's Allah do not and cannot ever rely on him the way Christian believers can rely on the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. This is true, in fact of those who follow all false gods.

These divine covenants are unique to the biblical record, for "outside the Old Testament we have no clear evidence of a treaty between a god and his people." (Gentry quoting Clements, Abraham and David in ibid., p. 109)

Outside of Scripture, no other god has dared to put him/herself on the line by an immutable covenant. That's because no other god can deliver.

For that reason, Christian Warrior, you can fight through to predestined victory as promised by the omnipotent God in and immutable covenant.

But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. (1Corinthians 15:57-58)
