What is in the Bible? Interior Ad Space 1. Should we change our pronouns for God? The word Al-lah literally means "The God" and is the equivalent of ho theos , the Greek term used in the New Testament to refer to God.

In Arabic translations of the Bible, the name Allah is always used to translate ho theos. Over the centuries, Arab Muslims and Christians have disagreed over many issues, both religious and political, but they have never accused one another of worshipping different gods. Some Christians have objected that since Muslims' understanding of God is not Trinitarian, how can the God of Muslims and Christians be one and the same?
One could ask the same question about the great figures of the Old Testament - Abraham, Moses, Isaiah or Jeremiah - whose understanding of God was not Trinitarian, or even of figures like John the Baptist and Mary in the New Testament. It was only later Christian reflection that arrived at an understanding of the One God as Trinity. Just as Christians would never claim that Abraham, Moses and John the Baptist worshipped a different God because they did not understand God's Triune nature, so it would be wrong for a Christian to claim that Allah worshipped by Muslims is not the God of Christians.
It is not only Christians who question whether the two communities worship the same God. Some Muslims accuse Christians of worshipping three gods. This is based on the view that the Christian doctrine of "one God in three persons" constitutes a kind of committee, a sort of "division of labour" among three individuals who share in the work of creating, saving and judging humankind.
All theologians and Church teachings agree that this is a misunderstanding of Christian faith, yet Muslims may be excused for holding this distorted view, for that is the way the Christian doctrine has often been presented to them. The ancient Councils of the Church like those of Nicaea, Ephesus and Chalcedon actually defined Christian faith as holding "one God in three hypostases". That Greek word is often rendered as "persons" but according to Karl Barth, a leading Lutheran theologian of the past century, it means "a way of being". According to Karl Rahner, one of the Catholic Church's most important theologians in recent times, it is "a mode of subsisting" - that is, a way of being and acting.
In other words, Christian faith affirms one God who has three essential, eternal ways of being and acting. The one eternal God has an eternal Message, a Message that Christians believe God expressed perfectly in the person of Jesus of Nazareth. You will not lose your rewards in Jesus Name.
