Why do so many people get up in arms on here over the word God?
I was on a group earlier and they were going crazy about the word God vs Allah.
Allah is GOD in arabic. I know some Arab CHRISTIANS that say Allah and not God...so where did this come from that God & Allah are two different beings?
I just don't understand it. It's a different language. How do you say Cheese in French? It's not Cheese it's Fromage. How do you say Lettuce in Spanish, It's not lettuce It's Leychuga. How do you say Good Bye in Russian? It's not Goodbye it's Dasvadanya. So it's the same thing, Allah is how you say GOD in Arabic. Dios is in spanish, Dieu is French, Divinitate in Romanian, Bóg is polish.
What's the big deal?

"Allah is so highly esteemed and worshiped that the believer of Allah will strap a bomb on an innocent child and even kill their selves for the sake of having 10 virgins on the other side of death."
It's 72 virgins....
mainstream Muslims regard this belief about 72 virgins in the same way that mainstream Christians regard the belief that after death they will be issued with wings and a harp, and walk on clouds.

While the Arabic word for God may be Allah, the allah of islam is NOT the same God Christians worship. He is one of the many false gods the Bible warns us about. There are very fundamental differences in the character and Deity of God and allah of islam. Don't allow yourself to be fooled into accepting they are one and the same. Muslims will tell you they are, but if they truly know their Qu'ran and the Bible, as they claim to, there is a BIG difference!
