Allah and Elohim - Are they the same
God? Part 7
Holy God, Shedding innocent blood
Leviticus 11:45, "For
I am the LORD who brings you up out of the land of Egypt, to be
your God. You shall therefore be holy, for I am holy."
From Genesis to Revelation the Bible tells us that
God is holy and we must live a holy life. Genesis 17:1, "When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD
appeared to Abram and said to him, "I am Almighty God; walk
before Me and be blameless." Here God directs Abraham to remain blameless. So we can see that God wants us to
live a spotless, blameless or pure life and to walk in His holiness,
as He is holy. But we do not see the qualities of
Yahweh/Elohim (the God of the Bible) in Allah.
Mohammed the founder of Islam did not live a clean life.
He not only married his adopted son's wife but justified
himself giving a new rule for the follower of Islam as we read in
The Clans, The Coalition, The Combined Forces
Sura 33:37 Behold! Thou didst say to one who
had received the grace of Allah and thy favour: "Retain thou
(in wedlock) thy wife, and fear Allah." But thou didst hide
in thy heart that which Allah was about to make manifest: thou didst
fear the people, but it is more fitting that thou shouldst fear
Allah. Then when Zaid had dissolved (his marriage) with her, with
the necessary (formality), We joined her in marriage to thee: in
order that (in future) there may be no difficulty to the Believers
in (the matter of) marriage with the wives of their adopted sons,
when the latter have dissolved with the necessary (formality) (their
marriage) with them. And Allah's command must be fulfilled.
But Bible considers it as adultery. God gave the ten commandments to Moses
and one of the commandment was "You
shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your
neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor
his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's."
Also God gave Moses Laws so that a person can get
forgiveness of their sins by the sacrificial lamb.
And Jesus the lamb of God came for the very purpose to take
away our sins. But Muslims say that, "it is
arrogance to say that our sins are forgiven. No one can know that
their sins are forgiven before the Day of Judgment."
Mohammed asked forgiveness to Allah but Quran does not say
whether his sins were forgiven. But he died in fear and gave the same
fear to the followers of Allah.
I asked many, "what if you die today, where would you
go?" They said,
"we are in between fear and hope.
We can not say for sure but on the Day of Judgment we will
be admitted in heaven." And Mohammed the founder of Islam
said to his daughter and aunt in a Hadith that he cannot save them
from the punishment.
Abu Huraira related that when the verse, "Cause
thy near relatives to fear," was revealed to the Prophet of
Islam, the Prophet arose and began to proclaim: "Oh people
of the Quraysh, and you sons of Abdul Manaf, and you Abbas, son
of Abdul Muttalib, and you, Safiyyah my aunt, I cannot save you
from the punishment of the Day of Resurrection. Take care of yourself,
O my daughter Fatimah; you may use my property, but I cannot save
you from God. Take care of yourself" (Bukhari).
Mohammed said about himself as we read:
Abu Huraira reported that the Prophet of Islam said:
"No one of you will enter Paradise through his good works."
They said: "Not even you, O Apostle of God?" "Not
even I," he replied, "unless God cover me with His grace
and mercy. Therefore be strong, and morning and evening, nay every
moment, try to do good."
contrary to this, all the prophets of the Bible were sure that their
sins were forgiven and they were sure of going to heaven. Jesus
said in John 5:24,
"Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word
and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall
not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life."
Yes, if you are in Christ Jesus you need not to fear
of punishment of judgment.
You need not to be in between fear and hope but Jesus gives
assurance of heaven by forgiving our sins.
Shedding innocent blood is abomination to God:
Prov 6:16-17, "These six things the LORD hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,"
Bible says that shedding of innocent blood is abomination
to God and God cannot tolerate it, but Mohammed the founder of Islam
made rules of Jihad saying that those who speak anything against
Islam, Allah, Mohammed or about their rules may be brutally killed.
So we can see that God of the Bible is not Allah.
Both are different from each other and the characteristics of the
God of the Bible and Allah do not match.
God of the Bible is holy while Allah is not holy. God of
the Bible forgives our sins and gives us eternal life while Allah
does not forgive sins nor gives eternal life. God of the Bible says
that shedding innocent blood is abomination while Allah does not
consider it as abomination.
