Christians. Many times we hear in the secular world that Muslims and Christians do worship the same God it’s just they call God by different names. Sometimes as a Christian it may be difficult to respond to that because in the Bible there are many names used for God. Add to that if we go past the names used in the King James Version of the Bible and dig into the Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic origins, we find many more names used.

In his brief explanation he touches on how the Muslim religion and Koran deny the “Father heart of God”, Muslims deny the deity of Jesus Christ and deny the person of the Holy Spirit.
