What One God that is LIE

The god of ALLAH is the different from the true GOD. Hence you see they write no other God but Allah.
That in itself tells you they are not one and they same.
Allah under stands only ARABIC so they do not pray or talk to GOD in their Native dialect like Yoruba, Igbo or Hausa cause HE does not UNDERSTAND.

Besides is a terrible and scary god hence could not be approached unless you Kill another soul.

He is not a God of Humanity but rather of a Cult group that must pay abeyance to him

The god preaches hatred and discrimination unlike a loving and Fatherly God of other faith. If you are not his, you are not acceptable nor accepted.

There are a million other reasons better i stop here for others to comment.

How come it was the christian God that directed Bush to destroy Iraq which in turn killed/injured hundreds of thousands and rendered millions homeless?

How do you know it was not under a condition? Did you prepare the food with him/her? Do you know of the muslims intentions by that act? Have you ever heard of "Sarra"? It's done by Yoruba Muslims (I don't know if it is called another thing in mainstream Islam) Basically what happens in Sarra is that a Muslim with a problem (Barrenness, impotence, poverty, etc) buys Some food items, chants certain Quranic passages on the food, then prepares the food and shares it to NON-MUSLIMS living within his vicinity. At least one of the people who eat such food will either die or have the same problems transferred to him/her while the problems leave the muslim. Some of the rich ones throw really big celebration parties in order to share this food usually to children and young adults (coz they still have vigour) You have to stay woke bro. It's not just any food you eat oo. Things are happening all around
To be fair, its not a Muslim thing, it's a Yoruba thing. I know Celestial folks who do the same.
I know of Christian folks who throw extravagant parties just for this purpose. If you want to be truly "woke", don't limit it to one religion

Who is more terrible? A Christian who refuses to accept Ramadan and sallah food from a Muslim or a Muslim who poisons food and shares it to Christian children? Let me know ur thoughts

But they recite their verses on their food and give thanks to Allah before eating and sharing .
That is a sacrifice.

It is not different from the sacrifices the Israelites gave to Jehovah in the Old Testament.

The question now is "Are you sure we are worshipping the same God "?
Because if not, then you are endangering your Christian life.

I'd rather do without the food .


Most of you christians are full of hate and bigotry and I wonder why you are full of st!t. Muslims pray before eating and sharing food then it's becomes sacrifice but yours ain't sacrifice? Don't you pray and share food too? How is yours different from theirs?

Nawa o, I said that Allah doesn't translate to God in Arabic, while using your declaration as example.

you said its not but, but except. I said OK and applied it. you and someone said no that it is god and God, I said OK apply it to the declaration, now then you say I hate you and I lie against you. OK o
I don't need you to like me. You can't know Quran more than I do . Like I said , download a copy of Quran and learn how g and G are used separately. Don't be an hypocrate. Even the Israeli Arab knows what Allah stands for. Your Christians far away in the North in Nigeria use Allah to refer to God. You are in one village telling me what you don't know. If your Pastor has told you otherwise, wouldn't you rather keep that to yourself?

Lol, go back and read his post again. The guy is telling you that the entity call Allah is different from the entity called Yahweh, eventhough they are both called by the name God in English, try and learn about the entity call Allah before Muhammad/Islam.

And I am telling him that it does not matter what you call Him; what matters is the sort of relationship you have with Him.

Only fools fight over names and ignore relationships. His posts reek of religious intolerance and it is not like he might even love his fellow Christians.

Allah is not the Arabic word for God. Check the following sentence made by Muslims... there is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is his prophet.
if Allah means God, then will the sentence be reasonable if its said,,, there's no God but God, and Muhammad is his prophet?

Some interpretations read "there is no god but Allah"

It simply means that the Muslims worship what they believe to be the true God and that besides this true God, other gods are false. It is the exact same belief of the Christians.

Yes, Jesus dined with them, he didn't eat at the idol worshippers table(food offered unto idols), but from SINNERS table(food eaten without idol worship ish) you know what I mean ryt. Don't mix things up

Great.
Thanks for the enlightenment.
So do our yourba moozlim brodas pray to Eledumare, Olorun/Olohun or to Allah? Yes/No? Is Allah same as Jehovah/Yahweh? Yes/No. If yes, do moozlims everywhere pray to or ever prayed to Yahweh/Jehovah, like even Jewish moozlims to start with? Any idea why or why not?
If all this means God the creator in some other language, then it's convienent to say Allah, Jehovah, Yahweh, all means the same thing. And note that no religion comes with a Language. You can google 'what is God in Arabic' on Wikipedia to gain further knowledge.

you that prays over your food is that sacrifice? Sacrifice is a totally different thing from praying over your food before you eat.

Depends on the individual.

There are liberal Muslims whose lives are worthy of emulation. And yet, they call on the same Allah that extremists like Boko Haram members call on.

The relationship that many Jews have with Yahweh (God) is different from the relationship that many Christians have with Yahweh and yet Jews and Christians call on the same God.

Yes, but I replied to your question concerning relationships.

Christianity and Islam are both Abrahamic religions. Ibrahim was listening to Allah the same way Abraham was listening to Yahweh. It is the same God.

Northern Christians MAY use Allah to refer to God. that doesn't mean it's correct. Most Christians are tolerant and prior to recent times, I believed that Allah means God too. If non Muslims know this I won't have bothered to post it in the first place.

Correct me if I'm mistaken but the Arabic meaning of gods in small letters is illaha, which is a term for every other God including the Christian God.

Also you made mention of my pastor telling me stuff which I should have kept to myself... that's absurd coming from a person whose brothers-in-religion riot and kill most especially after Friday prayers.

lastly, Jews call God Yahweh.... I challenge you as a Muslim to declare that there is no god but Yahweh.

Very true@ the bolded however have you ever wondered by both the Jews and the Christians both rejected Mohammed when a being appeared to Mohammed in a cave?

There is nothing to wonder there. Or perhaps, you should also wonder why:

Jews and Muslims reject Jesus Christ as the son of God

And also why the Jews and Muslims reject Paul.

Well, the reason Jews reject Jesus is very clear to every christian, its not a biggie. They were expecting a warrior like messiah but got the lamb of God who came to take away the sins of the world.
As per rejecting Paul, it is just an extension of rejecting Jesus(very logical ryt)
However, you still managed to evade providing an answer to my question; why did the Jews and Christians reject Mohammed?
Dont sweat, I'll tell you...
Yahweh, the God Almighty, also known as Jehovah never chose a prophet outside of his adopted people(Israel in the old testament) and (christians in the new testament)
The creator of the universe never chooses someone who is a stranger as his prophet. That is the simple reason Jews and Christians rejected Mohammed after moh's encounter with the being in a cave.

So I hope I have been able to help you out of your self imposed maze

And Paul's rejection is not an extension of Jewish rejection of Jesus.

Jewish Christians were wary of Paul. They believed in Jesus but distrusted Paul.

How about that?

Accept my challenge.. Yahweh means God in Jewish culture. if Allah means God as you claim, then make the declaration... I believe that there is no god but/except Yahweh. if you don't do it then you are the one without an iota of truth.
