\\Trust me, Bush and Maliki worship the same beast. Bush is every bit as "Christian" as the next satanist. The man's soul belongs to Skull and Bones and the Freemasons. He worships Appollyon and the devil, just like Maliki. A rose by any other name is still a rose.\\
It's amazing how you can see into other people's hearts, Higgins, and know whom they worship.
How do you bear such a burdensome gift?

Perhaps they both use the word "God".
Except for some common religious history between Islam and Judaism, long before Christ, the two religions have little in common. The Christian God displays mercy upon His followers and they are drawn to have a personal relationship with Him in love. The Muslim God, Allah, exacts judgment, without mediation, for the slightest infraction. His followers often see violence against "infidels" as a sure route to Heaven.
Therefore, even in a Muslim country, a Christian, would be guilty of blasphemy if He prayed to "Allah".

//Jesus directs worship to his Father Jehovah, and not to himself//
Yehovah has spoken out Is 55:11,Is 45:23,Is46:10 us the End from the beginning.
Well aware of all languages to be spoken-but only one Word is truth.Each Letter bares its definition to its word.
That would be Yeshua.
When understanding the beauty of the Hebraic-He has declared and bareswitness of Himself-over and over again.
The Worship is directed to the Father because the Fathers' Word is His truth-Spoken in Flesh-if you believe in God you will believe what He says.
They are one.
Different Dimensions-One God.2Kings 6:17
He alone confirms His Word.
He alone gets the glory.

We need leader who's doing less conversing with other humans and more praying and conversing with the living God, who knows all things. We, humans, talk and seek advice from other humans who don't know anymore than we know. God is smarter than anyone. We need leaders who's wise enough to know these things. Have a great Sunday+

To put Eloy's statement (9/9/10) into context:
"Jesus is the name above every name ...TO THE GLORY OF GOD THE FATHER." Ph.2:9-11.
Jesus said in prayer to his Father: 'I have made your name manifest.' John 17:6. The name of his Father is Jehovah (YHWH)- Psalms 83:18. (KJV- older editions)
At Matthew 4:10, Jesus said, 'it is written, 'It is Jehovah your God you must worship.' Jesus here quotes Deuteronomy 6:13 where Jehovah's name 'is written' as seen in the Hebrew Tetragrammaton (YHWH). Jehovah's name in the form of the Hebrew Tetragrammaton is also found in the Greek Septuagint at Deut.6:13 (plus other places) where it is transliterated.
Jesus directs worship to his Father Jehovah, and not to himself.

Allah is getting more attention today than the living God. Now, tell me how much since does that make. Allah cannot save anyone. Only Jesus and He has the power, my God has it all. And one day this nation is gonna wish they had it too. A Ha, Ha, Ha.

When a Christian(?) Speaks with a Moslem what name do they use for God? Mohammed's Allah, or the Lord Jesus Christ.
Exodus 4:5 the LORD God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob,
That we can use openly with any Muslim, Christian and jew.
---francis on 9/1/10|
Perhaps you should ask Bush since he as you alleged speaks abot God if he was a true christian he would have been beheaded by now. lol
---Carla on 9/1/10|
Allah>>>is not the true living God. We, Christians, serve the living God>>"The Lord Jesus Christ". And this is the name that every true Christian had better be using. Allah, can save no one. Only one man, one God, one Savior, who has the power to save....JESUS.++ Hello Jesus. How is everybody doing today? Don't let the bed-bugs bite.

In the name Jesus Christ. Colo.3 v 17.
My Jesus Did what the god of the mohammed, buddha, muslam, hindu etc didn't do.

How can you say Bush is all wind?
Who are you to judge him... for someone whos to be considered so christ like, you wag your finger a lot and seem to pass judgement -- not very christ like.
---msuz on 6/4/08|
When one is a true Christian, then regardless of who that Christian is speaking with, that Christian should ALWAYS refer to his/her Lord as Jesus Christ (YAHUSHUA) or in the Father's Name YAHWEH (YAHUVEH). NEVER compromise just to keep from offending the follower of another religion. If one is ashamed of The True GOD YAHUVEH, then He will ashamed of that "Christian" on the Day of Judgement.
---Gordon on 8/16/07|
Bush clearly states he is saved by Jesus Christ - yes - sometimes I wonder too but its not mine to wonder.
If I speak to someone of another faith or in a cult I talk about what we have in common and work from what they know. I never compromise who I pray to.
I've been asked not to mention Jesus in a few public meetings and I just say - "where He is not welcome I don't go".
I would hope Bush would share his faith.
---Andrea on 8/14/07|
My understanding is that when Moslems speak of "Allah" they intend to refer to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Moses - our God. However, I have also read that "Allah" was also the name of an ancient pagan diety in the Middle East and may have been associated with the three "goddesses" that Mohammed wrote about in the infamous Satanic verses.
For that reason, I hope that we have a common God, but I will not call my God "Allah".
---lorra8574 on 8/14/07|
Muslims do not accept that Jesus is the Son of God because they say God could not have a Son. Therefore, Allah cannot possibly be the same person that Christians refer to when they say God. Any Christians living in countries that speak Arabic probably do not use the name Allah because they would not wish to cause confusion (but I don't really know). My guess is that they might call Him Jehovah but also refer to Jesus their Saviour.

** Question: Doesn't Allah mean God in Arabic? So, wouldn't Christians in areas that speak Arabic use Allah when praying? It's just like when we say Abba, another name for God in a different language.**
The ancient Trisagion hymn (Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal, have mercy on us) begins Qudusson Allah in Arabic.
"Abba" properly means "papa" or "daddy", not "God."

There is no other Name in all the world by which you can be saved .....JESUS.!!!!! I usually address Father God and pray in the name of Jesus.

"Bush is all wind, he only says he is with Christ to get votes"... he's not up for re-election, jana.

In conjunction with this question I also remember when Vice President Gore(a Christian?) and Senator Lieberman(a orthodox Jew) during their first talk after their nomination prayed together, according to Mr. Lieberman. Again what part does light have to do with darkness?
---Mima on 7/27/07|
Bush is all wind, he only says he is with Christ to get votes..he blows stale wind when he knows he is with the pope..God of the catholics. sorry friends..he is not my god..Jehovah God Almighty is my God the one and only True Living and Loving God..
---jana on 7/27/07|
I do not know what Bush does but he claims to be Christian so he must be talking about Jesus if he discusses faith. Otherwise he is lieing to the US about claiming to be Christian and I doubt that.
---jody on 7/26/07|
Allah according to the Koran does not have a son name Jesus who is also God. Allah according to the Koran has not sent as the WORD made flesh, our Savior named Jesus Christ. Allah is of the Spirit of the Antichrist. According to the Koran Jesus is not the Messiah or the Christ.
The Moslem god and the Christian God are not the same. I know it greives God to hear his children confusing him with another god.
---Marcia on 7/26/07|
This statement," However, when Jesus is mentioned, that is what creates the stir." Made by --- Linda is exactly right. In business deals if you mention the Lord Jesus Christ many people, especially the Jewish people, come unglued.
---Mima on 7/26/07|
That is easy. We speak the name of the true God, Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the Gentiles as well as the Jews.
---catherine on 7/26/07|
God has many, many names. But no matter what a religion may call him, he is still God. He is many things to me. Not only is he my Father, but he is my best friend, my comfortor, my refuge, my mother, brother, doctor, lawyer. Whatever I need God to be, that is just what he is. Some of the Police Officers, including the Sheriff, are Masons. What is a mason anyhow and how do they believe?
---Rebecca_D on 7/25/07|
Mima...As you well know, lots of people say they know God, but don't have a clue!!!
---Susie on 7/25/07|
Many people can talk about God and know about God, but they don't truely know God. George Bush is a Mason.

Allah is a false god, a demon, a wicked froce that does have power, a principality. Allah does have power. Demons have dominions that they are to rule. Like Baal, Chemosh, Buddah, Rai, Siva. All these gods are demonic force that hold captive the minds of the lost. Satan would love for us to bow down to them. Satan would love for us to hold them in the same esteem as we hold the God of Jacob. However we Know our Gods character we know that he is Jealous and we will not put demons on the same level as him.

Allah is a false god, a demon froce, a principality that wants to be put on God's equal. Demons have dominions that they are to rule over, like Chemosh or Siva. All these false gods, demons, and wicked spirits take captive the minds of the lost. They are of the wicked demonic Spirit of the Anti-Christ and would love for us to esteem them as the God equal, they would love for us to bow our heart to them. Mohammed's "Allah demon god" makes himself higher then Christ this is the workings of Satan.
---Marcia on 7/25/07|
They use "God", nothing more, nothing less.
For a Christian, God equals Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Would you like to be the fly on the wall, Mima?

When I was witnessing to the Muslims in southern Spain, I used God or Jesus, not Allah.
---Madison1101 on 7/25/07|
To be honest, not too many people care if you mention God, particularly those of religious persuasions other than Christianity, simply because they believe in God. However, when Jesus is mentioned, that is what creates the stir...even more so when they hear that Jesus is THE Way. As a Christian, I have no salvation apart from the Lord Jesus Christ and, if He is in my heart, I would have a hard time NOT using His name no matter who the "audience" is.
