YAHWEH vs allah

A representative of CAIR claims Yahweh is the same God as allah......is this so?
Article follows my comments.........

 Our muslim "friend" is in error...The god of islam is allah..the god of the moon...chosen by muhammed..... the false prophet that Jesus warned about. Claiming allah is a translation of God is "taqiyya."  The God of "real" Christianity and Judaism is Yahweh represented in the four letters YHWH and  is translated  I AM.  (allah DOES NOT MEAN I AM)  Yahweh is  the REAL God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Israel) .....He is the SPIRIT OF LOVE, COMPASSION, FORGIVENESS ETC....He is NOT an anthropomorphic "superbeing" as in most other human religions including islam and Mormonism. Sadly...many alleged Christian denominations also think of God as a "superbeing."  Frankly...I believe this borders on blasphemy because God is Spirit and we are commanded to worship God IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH.

The "key" to understanding YHWH was revealed in Yeshua ben Joseph (Jesus the Christ) 2000 years and the following New Testament Scriptures verify what Jesus actually taught....... Genesis 1:26, Psalm 82:3-6, John 14:8-23, Galatians 3:26-28, Colossians 1:27, 2:9-10, 1 Corinthians:3:16-17, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, 1 John 4:11-16.  These Scriptures make it clear that God dwells within and works through His Creation and His PERFECT Laws and is NOT external to Creation but IS CREATION. God is NOT a man (super or anything else)  that He should lie. (Numbers 23:19)  143 years ago French Chemist Louis Pasteur performed a simple "S" shaped flask  experiment that revealed the reality of the Eternal God of Eternal Creation by disproving "spontaneous" generation and PROVING that "ALL Life MUST come from pre-existing Life"...God's PERFECT Law of Biogenesis.  "As a single living cell carries on ALL life activities of the multicellular organism..."creating" the "BODY of the ORGANISM.....so is the "individual life" (a living being) a "cell" of the "BODY" of GOD."  (1 Corinthians 12:12-30)

ImageAccording to Nihad Awad of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Muslims worship the same god as followers of the world’s other two major religions. In an essay written to support a Wheaton College professor who was fired after making similar claims, Awad said, “From an Islamic perspective, there is only one deity worshiped by Muslims, Christians, and Jews.
“In fact,” Awad continued, “the Muslim declaration of faith (shahada) states: ‘There is no god but God.’”
Awad went on to wave away any differences between Allah and God as linguistic in nature. “‘Allah’ is merely the Arabic translation for ‘God,’” he wrote. “All Arabic-speaking Christians refer to ‘Allah’ in their prayers.”
Awad and CAIR are defending Larycia Hawkins, a political science professor who took it upon herself to make waves at Wheaton, an evangelical Christian school. She was fired after making a Facebook post in December saying, “I stand in religious solidarity with Muslims because they, like me, a Christian, are people of the book. And as Pope Francis stated last week, we worship the same God.”
Now, you’re going to get a lot of people who say, What difference does it make? Isn’t it better for us to get along?
ImageImageWell, getting along is just fine and dandy. Nothing wrong with that at all. But if we can only do that by pretending that lies are true, then this proposed truce is built on one damn shaky foundation. There are plenty of things we could just accept as truth in the interests of getting along: Abortion is a woman’s right, police officers are racist bullies, illegal immigrants have just as much right to be here as anyone else. But when you have values, beliefs, and common sense, you can’t just sacrifice your intelligence on the altar of team spirit.
So it is here. If you want to believe that the Allah of Islam and the God of Christianity are only separated by vocabulary, go out and sing it from the highest mountaintop. Sign your emails with it. Take out an ad in the paper. But no matter how aggressively you promote this fiction, it won’t magically morph into fact.
“In blasphemy indeed are those who say that Allah is Christ the son of Mary,” says the Quran.
That’s the whole ballgame. Without falling into a No True Scotsman fallacy, it’s safe to say that you cannot be a Christian without believing in the deity of Jesus Christ. That’s pretty much fundamental. And a Christian college has every right to expect that their professors will not engage in theological nonsense when representing the school.
