Comparing God in the Bible and Allah in the Quran

Published on August 15th, 2013

 
Allah in the Quran
God in the Bible
The Word
Muslims believe Allah revealed his word to a man named Mohammed through an angel. The words were written down in the Muslims’ holy book, the Quran. God’s Word is a person, Jesus Christ, who reveals God to us and provides believers in Him a way to become children of God (John 1:1–14).
The Father
Muslims do not believe Allah is a father to humans (Quran 5:18). The Quran does not say that Allah seeks to redeem those lost in sin, or that he loves sinners (Quran 4:107). God is a loving heavenly Father. We love Him because He first loved us, even while we were sinners. He sent Jesus to save us. (See Romans 5:82 Corinthians 6:18, and I John 4:19)
The Son
The Quran, which is the word of Allah, says only liars say Allah has a son (Quran 37:152). Many verses in the Quran say Jesus is not the son of Allah. Jesus is the Son of God (John 3:16Matthew 3:17).
Judgment
Muslims believe Allah will judge people and will approve only those who have done enough good deeds (Quran 7:8,9).

God is perfect. He can accept nothing less than perfection. But all have sinned and fallen short of God’s standards. Jesus’ death on the cross allows us to be forgiven and accepted by a perfect God (Romans 3:21–26).

“How should I witness to my coworkers?”

Found at: http://www.livingwaters.com/witnessingtool/howshouldiwitnesstomycoworkers.shtml

When we interact with people on a daily basis, we have many opportunities for sharing our faith. First, be sure you are respectful to your employer and set a good example in your work ethic by working “as to the Lord” (Colossians 3:23).

When others around you grumble and complain, if you have a calm, forgiving, steadfast spirit, it will make an impression. As you respond in a Christ-like way to angry coworkers and stressful circumstances, people will see a difference in your life. Always be friendly and courteous, and show genuine interest in your coworkers’ lives. Invite them out to lunch to get better acquainted. Share their joys and sorrows by congratulating them in their good times and offering to pray for them in their bad times.

Be sure you do pray for them, then follow up by asking them about the situation you prayed for. They will be moved by your concern. If coworkers are discussing what they did during the previous weekend, you can share your excitement about attending church services or a special church event. Ask others if they have any plans for celebrating Christmas or Easter; be nonjudgmental of their answer, but be ready (if asked) to explain why you celebrate as you do.

Displaying a favorite Scripture or a devotional calendar, or reading your Bible during lunchtime, may prompt others to inquire about your faith. Bringing home-baked goods or leaving a small gift with a note on a coworker’s desk can sometimes have a greater impact than a thousand eloquent sermons. We can show our faith by our works. Others may not like a tree of righteousness, but they cannot help but like its fruit. Pray for opportunities to share the gospel, being careful not to infringe on your boss’s time.
