When referring to God, one may hear God referred to by the name of Allah or perhaps by the name of Yahweh. In fact, many names have been given to God.
However, a question I hear commonly asked is whether Christians and Muslims believe in or worship the same God. Muslims, who identify Mohammed as the Prophet of God, believe in Allah. Whereas Christians, who believe Jesus is the son of God, believe in Yahweh.
So do Muslims recognize Jesus or Christians recognize Mohammed? Are the respective God’s one and the same?
Daniel Janosik of Columbia International University wrote an interesting article on this same subject. I’d like to encourage American Bedu readers to view the article by Janosik and then share their views.
I think it is important to build bridges of understanding between Muslims and Christians but first of all, can we agree on who or what is God?
