Johnston, author of Earth, Empire and Sacred Text: Muslims and Christians as Trustees of Creation/5(3). Muslims (followers of Islam) consider Jesus Christ to be a prophet — a messenger of God — and a messiah.

However, they believe that Muhammad was the last prophet and he recorded the word of God verbatim in the Quran. It’s precisely here that the Christian and Muslim ideas of God diverge most sharply and irreconcilably.

We cannot say that Muslims and Christians worship the same God when Islam energetically denies the existence of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Islam itself says that the Christian teaching is blasphemous. And this is not just an academic point. Christianity’s scripture is the Holy Bible. Islam’s main scripture is Quran.
