Declaring That Allah Is God

A “who’s who” of
evangelical Christian leaders, including Rick Warren, Robert
and Bill Hybels,
have signed a letter to the Muslim community entitled “Loving God And Neighbor
Together” that openly equates Allah with the Christian God. This
letter was in response to an open letter from 138 prominent Islamic
leaders entitled “A Common
Word between Us and You” which stressed that the “unity of God” is
“thus the common ground between Islam and Christianity.”
Both of these letters again and again talk of “God” as if both
Christians and Muslims recognize and worship the exact same being.
But is this the case?
Of course not!
Christians believe in a Triune God (the Father, the Son and the
Holy Spirit), while Islam vehemently rejects the deity of Jesus Christ.
Instead they worship “Allah” which in reality was an ancient tribal moon
The title of the Muslim letter, “A Common Word Between Us and You",
sounds so peaceful though, doesn’t it?
However, it actually comes from a passage in the
calls for Christians (“people of the book”) to deny the Trinity and to
submit to Allah as “the one true God”.....
O People of the Book
[Christians and Jews]! Come to common terms as between us and
you: That we worship none but Allah [not the God of the Bible];
that we associate no partners with him; that we erect not, from among
ourselves, Lords and patrons other than Allah [no god but Allah ..
not Adonai]. (Quran,
But instead of rejecting such overtures, the response by over 300
prominent Christian leaders warmly welcomes them. In fact, the Christian
letter refers to “god” using terms that Muslims commonly ascribe to Allah.
For example, consider this line from “Loving God And Neighbor
Before we “shake your
hand” in responding to your letter, we ask forgiveness of the All-Merciful
Do you understand what this means?
The “All-Merciful One” is one of the key names for Allah in Islam.
So essentially the Christians are openly praying to Allah and asking
for his forgiveness in this letter.
Not only that, in the letter the Christian ministers openly applaud
Islamic devotion to Allah.....
We applaud that A
Common Word Between Us and You stresses so insistently the unique devotion
to one God
There is nothing in the letter about faith in Jesus Christ being
necessary for salvation.
Nothing at all about the cross.
Instead, the letter describes the “god” in the Islamic letter (Allah)
as “the God whom we should love above all things”. Just check out this
passage from the letter where once again the Muslim God is openly equated
with the Christian God.....
We find it equally
heartening that the God whom we should love above all things is described
as being Love. In the Muslim tradition, God, “the Lord of the worlds,” is
“The Infinitely Good and All-Merciful.”
Not only that, but the Christian letter calls
Prophet with a capital “P” a number of times.
How in the world could Muhammed be a Prophet if he constantly
denied the divinity of Jesus Christ?
But this letter from over 300 very prominent Christian leaders openly
The Christian letter goes on to state that if Christians and Muslims
fail to make peace, “our eternal souls” may be in jeopardy.....
If we fail to make
every effort to make peace and come together in harmony you correctly
remind us that “our eternal souls” are at stake as well.
What in the world?
That has nothing to do with real Christianity at all.
In real Christianity, “our eternal souls” are saved through faith in
In the final paragraph of the letter we once again see the Christian
God equated with the Islamic “god”, and Christians and Muslims are urged
to meet together and determine “how God would have us fulfill the
requirement that we love God”.....
We are persuaded that
our next step should be for our leaders at every level to meet together
and begin the earnest work of determining how God would have us fulfill
the requirement that we love God and one another.
By affirming that Allah is God, the 300 Christian leaders in this
letter are denying the Triune God of the Bible. The reality is
that the Quran
denies that Jesus Christ is the Son of God no less than nine times.
This letter represents apostasy of the highest order. It is another
huge step towards the one world religion and one world church of the last
days. The Christian ministers who signed this letter have denied their
faith and have brought shame to their ministries and congregations.
Therefore, we are calling for the immediate resignation of each and
every Christian minister that signed this letter.
You can find a list of the Christian leaders that signed this letter
You will likely recognize quite a few names on that list.
Please share this with your family and friends, and join with us in
demanding the resignation of the ministers on this list.
Christians and Muslims working together and worshipping the same “god”
is not the only hope for mankind.
Salvation through Jesus Christ is the only hope for mankind.
What a sad state the Church is in.
