Who Leads People Astray, God or Allah?

For those of us who trust in Christ, there's no doubt on this point. But for those who might still wonder, here's what the Bible says about God and what the Quran says about Allah.

Look at what Paul wrote in Titus 1:2 (KJV). "In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;"

But one of many examples of Allah leading people astray is sura 4:88 (Women). "What is the matter with you, divided into two factions regarding the hypocrites, when Allah Himself has overwhelmed them on account of what they did? Do you want to guide those whom Allah has led astray? Whomever Allah leads astray—you will never find for
him a way."

But some folks might argue that God blinds people spiritually. They might quote Deuteronomy 28:28 (KJV) which says, "The LORD shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart:" 

But throughout Scripture, only those who refuse to see are spiritually blinded. As Paul wrote in Ephesians 4:18 (KJV) of the wicked, "Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:"

Joe Casey, creator of the video series called Understanding Islam, said that the English versions of the Quran were altered so that the word "deceivers" was changed to "planners." Sura 3:54 (FAMILY OF IMRAN ) says, "They planned, and Allah planned; but Allah is the Best of planners."

But according to the Bible, Satan is the deceiver. Jesus said to the Pharisees in John 8:44 (KJV) that, "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."

I suppose that some folks will say that the Devil isn't Allah. Look at what Deuteronomy 32:17 (KJV) says about any other god than the real one. "They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not."

I'll be writing about this in more detail in my next book called You Think You're Going to Heaven? Satan is a real entity and we must be aware of how he tries to deceive the Lord's children.

On Thursday, I'll post about the one who intercedes for us in Heaven. We believers know who it is but the Quran contradicts the scriptures on this point as well.
