It is common to hear a Christian say Allah is not God. In fact some go to the extent of saying Allah is Satan, implying Muslims worship the devil.
My question to Christians who believe Allah is not God,
1. Whom do Jews pray to because just like Muslims they never pray "in the name of Jesus"?
2. Who answers the prayers of Jews who never pray "in the name of Jesus"?
3. When Jesus taught how to pray, did he forget to add "pray in my name"?
Jews and Muslims pray like Jesus, who never prayed through himself but prayed to God directly.
If you are a Christian and you are not having your prayers answered, practice praying like Jesus- use the commonly called 'The Lord's prayer'. That is what Jesus taught.
Then you may ask, didn't Jesus say "whatsoever you ask in my name my Father will give you"?
"In my name" does not mean the name J E S U S but His character. When you are like Jesus, in faith and character you are in the will of God and when you pray God will definitely answer your prayers.
That is the reason why a good Muslim and a good Jew are heard by God while a good Christian is never heard. The good Christian is praying to someone who does not answer prayers. Jesus does not answer prayers. He himself prayed to God, who answers prayers.
Therefore, Christians stop praying to Jesus. He never prayed to himself. He prayed to God. He taught how to pray to God not himself.
Here is the teaching on prayer not by Matthew, not by Luke, not by John but by Jesus himself. How can you disobey?
Mat 6:9 - Therefore, this is how you should pray: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Hold it there. He said "Our Father in heaven".
Here is the rest:
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
Nowhere in this prayer did He teach "for ever and ever in my name, Amen".
Now, get ready to have your prayers answered as you pray to God not any other. Not to Jesus (pbuh), not to Muhammad (pbuh).
