Allah and Elohim - are they the same God? Part 22

You Shall not take the name of the Lord your God in Vain!

Exodus 20:7, "You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain."

Name of the LORD is considered most Holy and Sacred and God prohibits using it for vain purposes. Now when we read in Quran we find a contrary commandment

Al-Ma'idah (The Table Spread)
Sura 5:4 They ask thee what is lawful to them (as food). Say: lawful unto you are (all) things good and pure: and what ye have taught your trained hunting animals (to catch) in the manner directed to you by Allah. eat what they catch for you, but pronounce the name of Allah over it: and fear Allah. for Allah is swift in taking account.

Al-An'am (The Cattle)
Sura 6:121 Eat not of (meats) on which Allah's name hath not been pronounced: That would be impiety. But the evil ones ever inspire their friends to contend with you if ye were to obey them, ye would indeed be Pagans.

We do not see this type of command in Old Testament or New Testament. But contrary to it, God says, "You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain."

Bible also considers taking God's name for swearing or saying the things which God did not say i.e. false prophecy as sin. Bible says in Leviticus 19:12, 'And you shall not swear by My name falsely, nor shall you profane the name of your God: I am the LORD."

We see that land is polluted and one of the reasons was by swearing and lying ( Hosea 4:1-2) God is charging Israel for their broken covenant saying that there is no truth or mercy Or knowledge of God in the land. Why? It says further, "By swearing and lying, Killing and stealing and committing adultery, They break all restraint, With bloodshed upon bloodshed."

Bible tells us that swearing and lying is sin before God. Not only that, if a person speaks anything which is not from God, then also it is considered as sin as we read in Jeremiah 23:31-32, "Behold, I am against the prophets," says the LORD, "who use their tongues and say, 'He says.' "Behold, I am against those who prophesy false dreams," says the LORD, "and tell them, and cause My people to err by their lies and by their recklessness. Yet I did not send them or command them; therefore they shall not profit this people at all," says the LORD."

It is inevitable that true as well as false prophets will come but we have to discern whether they are from God or not. Many a times I asked the Muslims, how Mohammed was considered a prophet while there is not a single quality of prophethood in his life? Most of them said, "we believe that Mohammed is a prophet" but they could not produce a single proof why they believe. If a person claims that he/she is a prophet then we should test his/her words and see whether he/she is a prophet or not. If the things spoken by a prophet is not lining up with the Word of God(Bible) then he/she is not from God. Bible tells us in 1 John 4:3, "and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world."

And we see in Quran that Mohammed simply denied the deity of Christ saying, Jesus is mere prophet and is not God as we read in

An-Nisa (Women)

Sura 4:171 O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) an apostle of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His apostles. Say not "Trinity" : desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is one Allah. Glory be to Him: (far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.

This verse says that Jesus is a mere apostle of Allah and also says, 'Say not "Trinity" : desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is one Allah.' While the Bible very clearly talks about the deity of Jesus and about triune nature of God.

Bible also tells us in Galatians 1:8-9, "But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed."

So my friend, be careful when you hear or read a message. Compare it with the Bible and if it is not according to the Bible, it is not from the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Again it proves that Allah is not the God of the Bible.
