The Christian God, the Jewish God, and the Muslim God are all the same, its just that the religions have a different take on his "prophets", and differences on things about God.  For example, Christians believe that the prophets in the Old Testiment are really prophets of God, yet neither Jews or Muslims believe Jesus is the Son of God.  However, Muslims do acknowledge (to my knowledge) that Jesus was a prophet of God.  The take on Jesus is just one of many areas where the three religions vary.  But when you get back down it, they all believe in the God of Abraham.

Yes I do believe in God. I also believe that Allah and God are one in the same.

How many times do I have to tell you, Allah is just the arabic word for God!

And yes...I believe in it, and strangely enough, due to scientific facts


Well one of the five pillars of Islam states that:

There is no God, only Allah.


Sentenal is spot on. What it is supposed to say, "there is not god BUT allah" It means that THAT certain god is the right and only god. He has no partners. Or child. So pretty much, The Abrahamic God is the only God, creator, sustainer and destroyer of the Universe....
I like pie

I believe that the universe and therefore, nature, is an ordered system, but I do not feel the need to personify that order.

Kind of a low turnout on the "poll" part of this thread.  Lots of responses addressing it, but actual votes is low.

The poll was added late.  Most people haven't seen it yet.

I need more proof to be a believer. And also, I would never be a Christian again.

Well, yeah...once you leave a religion you normally dont go back. If i left my religion (hopefully i wont be killed. ha ha ! ...) i would become atheist, because to leave my religion id have to stop believing in God, not just THE god. Then after atheism buddhism
