God is to Allah what Jesus is to Shariah

Paul Derengowski, ThM

That is the conclusion of a Jewish friend of mine to an article I wrote a couple of days ago that exposed the fraud behind the “Me too” movement perpetuated by Hollywood’s Alyssa Milano.

Instead of actually dealing with what I did write, she went off the proverbial rails and made the following comment to a friend of hers who claimed to be a “committed Christian,” who has since bowed out of the discussion.

Apparently, even she realized her foolish commentary was not fooling anyone, not even herself. Here is hoping that she paints better than she reads, thinks, or prevaricates.

Anyway, my Jewish friend had this to say:

So, God is comparable to Allah and Jesus is comparable to Shariah and a Muslim could have written what I wrote? Really?

Coming from a Jew, I seriously doubt that Yahweh would be impressed by comparing him with an Arabian desert idol.

Yahweh not only visited His people while walking in the Arabian peninsula, He delivered His Ten Commandments there.

Allah has never visited anyone, nor would he, since he is so unlike anything in creation that he cannot relate to it.

Yahweh later manifested himself in the flesh, in the person of Jesus Christ, whereas Allah can only send his angels, who are really nothing more than demons, to do his beckoning.

Anyone with a cursory knowledge of biblical demonology and Muhammad’s confession would understand.

Finally, Yahweh revealed that he created humanity in his own image, which means men and women are finitely like God. Allah, however, is not like anything or anyone; to argue otherwise is blasphemy—at least according to a Muslim!

It is one of main reasons why Yahweh is personable and Allah is not.

As for Jesus being comparable to Shariah,it must be asked, when did Shariah pay the sin debt of humanity by offering itself on a Roman cross to die in humanity’s stead?

When did Shariah provide sight to the blind, healing to the lame, and hearing to the deaf?

Where is it recorded that Shariah is “I AM,” signifying that it is God?

Who ever claimed that Shariah was the good shepherd, the light of the world, or the Son of God?

Whom did Shariah raise from the dead, including itself?

Where is it written that Shariah is the Christ, the Messiah, the anointed one of God?

The answer to each of these questions is in the negative. Never, nowhere, no one, and it is not.

Moreover, to say that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life would never be uttered by a Muslim without facing the penalty associated with shirk.

Shirk is most deserving of the death penalty, since it attempts to equate something or someone with Allah.

Hence, there is nothing comparable between Jesus and Shariah, though, from either the Christian or Islamic viewpoint.

So, for my Jewish friend to draw such a specious conclusion is beneath her. It is rooted not only in ignorance of Christianity and Islam, but Judaism, as well!

Nevertheless, this is part and parcel of what I referred to earlier, in the other article, where deceit, ignorance, irrational accusations, and the like, are all a part of the worldly system.

They are the very things that negate any complaint(s) against things like sexual harassment, police brutality, and the Islamization of the West.

Without a firm understanding of who God and Jesus are, from the biblical perspective, as the solution to societal ills, then anyone griping and complaining about some perceived injustice is only hypocritically shouting at the darkness.

What is even more unfortunate amid the hypocrisy are all the faulty equations and arguments that accompany the shouts, which includes equating Yahweh with Allah and Jesus with Shariah, and that such comparisons could have been written by a Muslim.
