    Interesting question...

    Came across an interesting question/challenge, to day:

    Describe the difference between God (of the Christians), and Allah. Note, the question isn't about the difference between Islam, and Christianity, but rather the difference between the God that each worships.

    No real difference. There are many accepted names for the Supreme Being of the world's religions. God is the Christian name, Allah is the Muslim name.

    One is a triune entity - i.e., with three parts - while the other is not. (As to the former, this is not necessarily true of all sects.)

    So, the difference is dogmatic? Why would one God give two different groups, two different messages of "truth"? Seems rather conflictive, and counter-productive.

    One spreads his message through a profit.

    The other first spread laws through various people he had burning bushes talk to, gave other guys stone tablets or just told other guys how they should live.

    Then he sent his son, that is actually him, to earth to basically say everything dad said was wrong. And all three versions seem to be at odds with each other.

    Plus there is the spook flying around. Not sure when he was invented.

    The only monotheistic religion with three gods.

    So I'd say a lot of differences.

    The idea of godallahvaal is the same. The interruption of that god is all man.

    Actually there are more than two "Abrahamic Religions".

    "Prophet," not "profit."
