The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob

January 4, 2008

Mosque and Church
Originally uploaded by inkfeather Christians, Muslims, and Jews all worship the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. But, Patrick J. Lyons at The Lede tells us in Malaysia, only Muslims may call the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, “Allah.”

Harrumph.

Allah is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

My God is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

There is but one God.

My God is Allah.

I am not a Muslim, but my God is the same God as for a Muslim, and as for a Jew. We may worship differently. We may pray differently. But, for all of us, there is but one God, and this is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
