Two Opposite Gods

I had a very interesting exchange with a Muslim that I have gotten to know over the past few years. He is a Sunni Muslim from Qatar and is smart and passionate to his faith. He asked me what I thought of President Trump moving the embassy to Jerusalem and declaring it the Capitol for the Jewish state. He made the point that Jerusalem was the Home of the Christians, the Muslims and the Jews, and has been for a long time. This is true that the three major religions have co-existed for many hundreds of years. Then I posed the question: what if all the Jews left Jerusalem for a homeland in Wyoming and completely abandoned Palestine in exchange for all Muslims leaving the United States so there was one country on earth that would be Muslim free.  Would this stop the feud ? That question didn’t get answered yesterday, but I posed it for discussion another day. This certainly would be a noble experiment and go against Bible prophecy and has about zero chance of happening. I said to this man that its wrong for any man or woman to take the life of another. It is the very tenant of Jesus’s commands to lay down ones life for another, to turn the other cheek to love your neighbor as yourself. This is the way to peace walk you in it…
Then the conversation switched to Abraham and that he was both the father of Ishmael his firstborn, and Issac his firstborn of Sarah. Then I said that there was One God for all and he quickly said that the Christians worship 3 Gods and the Muslims only have one God! I followed by saying that the Christians were wrong and that the Muslims are right as well as the Jews.  He said to me “you only believe in one literal God?”  I replied absolutely and he asked if I believed that Jesus is God, and I replied No, but followed with Jesus Christ is the literal Son of the Most High God. He said that I believed like a Muslim except he didn’t believe that Jesus was the literal son of God but a great prophet of God to the Christians. He asked me if I have read the Koran and I said that I have read some of it and would eventually read more. To be able to understand an opposite, one must understand where the other religion or person is coming from. I asked him if he believed everything his faith taught and what he was taught by his mosque. He looked at me and I followed by saying that I don’t believe everything my church teaches and that one should reserve the right to think independently to avoid error and dependence on church tradition over the Holy scriptures.  He then agreed. He was amazed at my candor and was very brotherly towards me and couldn’t believe a Christian would deny the trinity or the binitarianism of God and believe that the Father is the only one who is truly God, no other. Only the Father sits on throne and is covered by the cherubim angels. He said he had never met a Christian who believed in the One God being the only God, no other, he was ecstatic.  I felt like I had broken through barriers of the two major religions of the world even though we didn’t get into Alah vs Jehovah, the different Gods, the god of this world, and the God and father of Abraham, Issac , and Jacob.  That I will save for another day.  So how important is understanding the One God of Israel?
