Christianity and Islam


Sir Roger Scruton discusses the differences between Christianity and Islam from a religio-political perspective. Political systems that have their basis in Christianity can have a secular government with the separation of church and state; this is not possible in Islam, where 'church' (Islam) and state are identified.

Do Muslims and Christians Worship the Same God?

Nabeel Qureshi, author of the book Seeking Allah, finding Jesus discusses the question of whether Christians and Muslims worship the same God. This is a valid and important question.

"With this desire for love in mind, I turn now to the question: Do Muslims and Christians worship the same God? Like all good questions, the answer is more complex than most want, but I am confident of my position: Muslims and Christians do not worship the same God, but given the complexity of the matter we all ought to stop demonizing those who disagree with us.

I should start by saying this: for years after leaving Islam and accepting Jesus as Lord, I believed that Muslims worshiped the same God as Christians but that they were simply wrong about what He is like and what He has done. After all, I had been taught as a young Muslim to worship the God who created Adam and Eve, who rescued Noah from the flood, who promised Abraham a vast progeny, who helped Moses escape Egypt, who made the Virgin Mary great with child, who sent Jesus into the world, who helped the disciples overcome, and who is still sovereign today. Is that not the God of the Bible?"
