On the Godhead

Z Islam Teaches…

† Christianity Teaches…
Islam is monotheistic (Koran 3:64). The first phrase in the Declaration of the Faith states:

  * “I bear witness that there is no God but the Almighty God and that Mohammad is a messenger of God.”[1]
  * “For God hath said, ‘Take not to yourselves two Gods, for He is one God.’” (Sura 16:53; cp. 20:7)
  * “Verily God will not forgive the union of other gods with Himself.” (Sura 4:51)

Islam rejects the concept of the Trinity. The Koran misrepresents the teaching of Christianity regarding the Godhead, claiming Christians believe in “three Gods” - Father, Mother, and Son. (Sura 5:116, 5:73-75; cp. (Koran 5:114)

In the account of creation recorded in the book of Genesis, God speaks plurally of His own Person. (Genesis 1:26, 27; cp. Genesis 3:22; 11:7; Isaiah 6:3, 8)

The Christian Scriptures, both New and Old Testaments, teach that the Godhead consists of three persons in one: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Isaiah 11:2 “...the Spirit… the Lord… Him”
Isaiah 42:1 “My Servant… I… My Spirit… upon Him”
Isaiah 48:16 “The Lord God… His Spirit… sent Me”
Isaiah 61:1 “Spirit of the Lord God… upon Me ... the Lord”
Isaiah 63:9 “He…the Angel of His Presence… His Holy Spirit”
Matthew 1:20, 21 “the Lord (the Father)... the Holy Spirit ... Jesus”
Matthew 3:16, 17 “Jesus… the Spirit of God… a Voice from heaven (the Father)”
Matthew 12:18 “I… My Spirit… on Him”
Matthew 22:42, 43 “Christ… the Spirit… Lord (the Father)”
Acts 11:16, 17 “the Lord… the Holy Spirit… God… the Lord Jesus Christ”
Acts 20:21-23 “God… Jesus… the Holy Spirit”
Romans 1:1, 3, 4 “God… His Son, Jesus Christ… the Spirit”
Romans 5:5, 6 “God… the Holy Spirit… Christ”
