Are the Two Faiths of Islam and Christianity Compatible?

Islamic ViolenceWhen we see the news, the middle east always seems to be synonymous with violence and hatred. All in the name of Allah. Why is that? Doesn’t the five pillars of faith in the Muslim religion relay that Islam is a religion of peace?  Are the Christian and the Islamic faiths similar? Are they compatible (Chrislam) and is the God of the Bible the same god “Allah” of the Qur’an (Koran)? The short answer is no. That said, lets take a closer look at both statements of faith from the actual Bible and the Koran and other resources.

This article will also contain a compilation of resources you can study to help you get a better understanding of the differences between the two faiths. Whether you are Christian or a Muslim, I pray that by the time you have read and studied the information in this article, you can have a complete confidence on which God to put your trust in. May the Holy Spirit guide and draw you to the desicion point to receive the free gift of salvation through God’s one and only Son, Jesus Christ.

One of the best way to see the differences between the religions is to compare what the God of Bible says and what the god of the Koran states about a variety of subjects. The table below will link you directly to a given subject and place the writ of the Koran next to the verses of the Bible on the same subject. Press “backspace” to come back to this page.
