“Adonai, Allah, Budda, God, Jehova, Jesus, Muhammed, Yahweh; They’re All the Same, Right?”

No, they are not. While the Bible has many names for God, Adonai and Yahweh being but a couple, Allah, Budda, Muhammed, and others are not mentioned at all. One might say, “OK, so they are not mentioned, but are not these names simply another culture’s translation of the God in the Bible, just as Jehova is the English translation of the Hebrew and Adonai?” The answer is still no. These other names may be translations of other languages; but, they are not referring to the God of the Bible. One might still argue that Allah refers to the God of the Bible since the Islamic religion also recognizes Jesus; however, the Jesus they recognize was merely a prophet leading the way to another, more superior prophet, Muhammed, who is the High Priest pointing the way to Allah. Islam’s Jesus is not considered to be the Savior sent by God to redeem mankind. What does the Bible say about it?

Deuteronomy 6:4 (NASB)
4 “Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord is one!

Matthew 3:16-17 (NASB)
16 After being baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove and lighting on Him, 17 and behold, a voice out of the heavens said, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased.”

John 14:6 (NASB)
6 Jesus said* to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

The LORD (Jehova) is God, there are no others. His Son is Jesus Christ in whom He is well pleased, not Muhammed. And finally, Jesus clearly states that no one comes to the Father (God), but by Him. Jesus is our Lord and Savior, sent by God, for our eternal redemption with God, no one else.
