Question of the Day

When Kenneth and Gloria started their journey of faith they had questions too—lots of them! So, we've compiled the most frequently asked questions by people like you—people who earnestly desire to find God's answers to the practical, real-life challenges of everyday living. We have a new question every day, so check back often!

Do Muslims worship the same God as Christians?
Do Muslims worship the same God as Christians?

Generally speaking, Muslims believe that Jesus was a prophet, but not the Son of God. They do not believe He died and arose from the dead, or that His blood was shed for the forgiveness of sin as stated in Romans 10:9: “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Nor do they accept the authority of the New Testament.

For more clarity on the subject, we recommend the book Inside Islam: Exposing and Reaching the World of Islam by Reza Safa. Reza was born in Iran and was raised as a devout Shiite Muslim, faithfully observing the laws and regulations of Islam. He fasted during the month of Ramadan and prayed five times a day. Then he converted to Christianity. Three years after his conversion, the Lord called him into full-time ministry, and in 1985 he attended Kenneth Hagin’s Rhema Bible Training Center.

His book can be found at online retailers or on his website, www.rezasafa.com. It includes a positive approach to witnessing to Muslims without belittling Mohammed, arguing about the validity of the Koran or debating Islamic beliefs.
