Franklin Graham: Islam and Christianity Do Not Worship the Same God


Plenty of liberals like to pretend that Christians and Muslims are exactly the same. One of them is a professor at Wheaton College, and Franklin Graham responded forcefully.

Muslims and Christians do not worship the same God, celebrated evangelist Franklin Graham said in response to the controversial claim by a faculty member at Wheaton College in Illinois.

In a series of tweets late Saturday night, Graham, the son of evangelist Billy Graham, laid out his opposition to the recommendation of the college’s faculty council that the school drop its plans to terminate a professor who published her belief that Islam and Christianity worship the same God, which Graham said was “no minor issue.”


… In a separate Facebook post, Graham said both his father and mother attended Wheaton College, where they met for the first time.

“I’m surprised and disappointed that the faculty council there is now recommending the college drop their plans to terminate a professor who published that she believed Islam and Christianity worship the same God in December. This is no minor issue that should be debated,” Graham wrote.

The fundamental issue for Graham is the theological question of the nature of God and therefore the mission of the college.

“Islam denies that God has a Son,” Graham wrote. “They deny that Jesus is God. They do not believe in a Triune God–the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. I can tell you–Islam and Christianity clearly do not worship the same God.”

“How the faculty council can now support this professor being allowed to teach students is deeply concerning,” he concludes.

The Wheaton College website, which identifies the school as “explicitly Christian,” includes a statement of faith that unequivocally lays out its Christian beliefs.

“WE BELIEVE in one sovereign God, eternally existing in three persons: the everlasting Father, His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, and the Holy Spirit, the giver of life; and we believe that God created the Heavens and the earth out of nothing by His spoken word, and for His own glory,” it reads.

Graham said it best: the god of Islam is not the same as the God of Christianity. It’s sad that so many people are willing to conflate the two, though.
