Today I want to talk about why Islam is the religion of the Devil. This religion did not come from Jehovah God and if it didn’t come from Jehovah God, it came from His enemy. Before I get into showing how Muhammad was demon possessed and how this religion came into being I want to deal with the error that many Christians make in equating Allah, the god of Islam with Jehovah, the God of the Bible.
I would like to have hour feedback on our broadcasts. You can email me at [email protected]. You can also leave a message on our comment line which you will see in the upper left of this page.
Many Christians equate the name of Allah with the name of Jehovah. They say that both names refer to the same God. Nothing could be further from the truth. God’s name is holy and He is jealous for His name.
Ezekiel 39:25 “Therefore thus saith the Lord God; now I will bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name.”
The reason this is so important is that the equating of Allah with Jehovah is infiltrating our churches and even our mission work. We all have a heart to reach Muslims with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Gospel of Jesus Christs rescued Shahram, my co-host on our Saturday broadcast, from Islam. To him this is a very personal thing because he knows Islam and he knows who Allah is. Islam is not the truth, it is a lie, it is a deception, it is all from the pit of Hell.
We have missionaries telling us that it is perfectly alright to use the name Allah when describing the God of the Bible. They tell us that Allah is just a generic word in Arabic for God. It is a major problem. Before I show who Allah is let me share some statistics on this subject from Barna Research on pluralism in America.
- Six out of ten Americans believe that the God of the Bible is the same as the god of Islam.
- Of that 60%, 40% said they were born again believers.
- Only about 30% of Americans have a problem with Islam.
These statistics tell us that there is a big disconnect and we are losing the information battle on this.
Let me break down who Allah is. The name “Allah” is not a generic name. It is derived from two words which mean “the god,” not “a god.” This is important because, before the beginning of Islam, Allah was being worshiped as the god of the Ka’bah in Mecca. Today this is considered the holiest place in Islam.
If you are a regular follower of Fortress of Faith you know that Muslims must make a pilgrimage (hadj) at least once in their lifetime. Once there they walk around the building seven times, they prostrate themselves, and if possible, touch the black stone that is there. This stone is supposed to absolve them of their sins and, hopefully, they will get to go to Paradise.
Allah was being worshiped in that manner before Muhammad came and introduced the world to this supposedly monotheistic god. The Ka’bah was called the house of Allah prior to the foundation of Islam. Allah was one of the 360 idols that were worshiped there. Allah (the god) was the chief god of many. This idol worship, which included the worship of Allah, existed hundreds, if not thousands of years before Muhammad and Islam came on the scene.
The question we have to answer is, If Allah was being worshiped in that place as the chief god over 360 idols and Muhammad comes along and says we have to worship just one god, why did he call this one god Allah?
It is interesting that Muhammad’s father was named Abdullah, which means “a slave of Allah.” The family name had Allah in it and they worshiped this Babylonian god. Isn’t it interesting that Muhammad chose the name Allah for his god of Islam?
My question to you, and to the Christians and missionaries who call Allah the same god as the God of the Bible, is, how can you use the name Allah to describe the God of the Bible? Remember, Allah was the chief god of 360 idols. I really can’t understand how we have come to the point where we have to talk about this kind of thing.
We will continue our discussion of Islam as the religion of the Devil tomorrow. Be sure to listen to the broadcast by clicking on the audio player above.
