God and Allah

Many Christians and Muslims claim that they worship the same god, that the Christian God and the Islamic Allah are one and the same.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

The Christian God sent his Son to Earth to redeem humanity. Islam denies that Jesus is divine though it does credit him with being a great prophet.

If God and Allah are the same then both religions would recognize Jesus as the Son of God. They don’t. Allah never mentioned to Mohammed that he had a Son named Jesus. We are forced to believe that Allah either has a poor memory or is an entirely different deity. Take your pick, it’s your call.
