Speaking in a viral video, is the renowned Nigerian Televangelist and Senior Pastor of Chris Embassy International Ministry, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome. During an online broadcast, the clergyman answered a question from a lady from Zambia, who asked that “Is the Muslim God the same as those of Christians?”
“Grace from Zambia is asking, “is the Muslim God the same as those of Christians?” No, there is a reason why I say no. A Muslim may not think that I’m right to say that we’re not serving the same God, but I can say we are not. The reason I said they’re not the same God is this… The God that the Christian worship sent Jesus and Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life, no man comes to the father (that means God) except through me”. So, if there is any religion in the world that people try to go to God without going through Jesus, then, of course, that must be another God; Muslims and Christians are not serving the same God, because the God of the Christian is the God of Jesus Christ.
“He is the God who raised Jesus from the dead because the Christian believe that God raised Jesus from dead and that Jesus is not dead. He died but God raised Him up and showed Him openly to people who saw Him alive and when He went to heaven, He didn’t vanish. According to the Bible, He just ascended from the ground and they saw Him lifted and went into the cloud as they watched Him. Another beautiful thing about Jesus is the fact that His name has power. When you pray in the name of Jesus the Father answers, that’s why Christians believe so much in miracle.”
