I’m a Baptist that after much study has been leaning toward what I feel is the correctness of the Catholic church in doctrine and practice. I have very recently ran into a road block. Please read the following except–
“According to the Catechism, ‘together with us (Catholics) they (Muslims) adore the one, merciful God.’ Pope John Paul II repeats this statement even more clearly. Addressing Muslim youths, the Pope said: ‘We believe in the same God, the one and only God, the living God, the God who creates worlds and brings creatures to their perfection’ (What Dialogue Means for Catholics and Muslims, US Conference of Catholic Bishops, http://www.usccb.org/seia/brunett.htm).”
I’ve spent time in Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, and other Muslim countries and I can tell you they don’t worship the same god. They even believe the Trinity is made up of God, a human Jesus, and Mary his mother. God is trinity and Muslims deny this so how can they worship the same god? Thanks.
