I God trying to start a war?

May 7, 2007 5:30am CST
I've been following the war on terror for like, ever since it started, and I have come to realise just how ridiculous the theories of the two factions are. The radical terrorists claim that Allah has told them to wage war on America and in the meantime it turns out that God told Bush to fight iraq. Far be it from me to criticize (I am not a religious man myself) but does it make a lot of sense that God and Allah are the same person. Doesn't this mean he is the evil puppeteer!?

I was looking on some christian websites to find an answer to your question as far as god an Allah being the same being. According to what I found, God and Allah are not the same being. Christians worship a God who has declared himself to mankind through the work of Jesis Christ, God manifest in the flesh. Muslims however worship a god who requires that they perform certain rituals to reach the paradise created to them.Where in Christianity you believe in the word of God will get you into heavan. When it comes to the radical muslims though they believe that in order to experience the paridise of heaven they need to "go out with a bang", basically taht they need to do something radical to get in. We need to keep in mind that this is a very small number in the muslim community. Muslims should not be judged by the radicals out there, anymore than Christians should be judged by the radical christians out there. I am not a very religious person but I dont think that our lord be it the Christian, or muslim would be an evil pppeteer. The afterlife is about love, and I think that while we are on earth it should be about love as well.

fair play, that sounds like a nice idealistic way to look a things. But your words lead me to another thought, if God and Allah are different but both still exist, does this throw the whpole God is the one supreme being angle out the window?
