God in the Bible and the Quran

 

The presentation of God in the scripture has to be the most important asset for the reader of these divine books. Any distortion of the image of God in any of these books has to represent a distortion of the claimed scriptural texts as God has special qualities that canot be denied, distorted, degraded or damged by human intervention. While some passages of the Bible and the Quran agree on the same qualities of God, there are some passages in the Bible that totaly distort God and His qualities when compared with the Quran. We will present here both groups of qualities that agree and the others that disagree. Let us start with what the Bible and the Quran agree about regarding God.
