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.


BIBLE:   RE : Worshipping Human Beings "In Lystra there sat a man crippled in his feet, who was lame from birth and had never walked. He listen to Paul as he was speaking. Paul looked directly at him, saw that he had faith to be healed and called out, "Stand up on your feet!" at that, the man jumped up and began to walk.
When the crowd saw what Paul had done, they shouted in the Lycaonian language, "The gods have come down to us in human form!" Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul they called Hermes because he was the chief speaker." .................................................
Acts 14:8-12

Qur'an: RE :Worshipping Human Beings
[ 9:31] They have set up their religious leaders and scholars
as lords, instead of GOD. Others deified the Messiah, son
of Mary. They were all commanded to worship only one god.
There is no god except He. Be He glorified, high above having
any partners. 
BIBLE:  RE :Worshiping Angels
"Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you for the prize." 
Colossians 2:18
Qur'an: RE :Worshiping Angels
[ 3:80] Nor would he command you to idolize the angels
and the prophets as lords. Would he exhort you to disbelieve
after becoming submitters? 
[34:40] On the day when He summons them all, He
will say to the angels, "Did these people worship you?"
BIBLE:  RE :Worshipping NO Other Gods

"So Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, "Get rid of the foreign gods you have with you, and purify yourselves and change your clothes." 

Genesis 35:2 

Qur'an: RE :Worshipping 
NO Other Gods [2:133] Had you witnessed Jacob on his death bed; he said to his children, "What will you worship after I die?" They said, "We will worship your god; the god of your fathers Abraham, Ismail, and Isaac; the one god. To Him we are submitters."
