If I was asked....I would say that I do not believe that the Muslims worship the God of Abraham....the Trinitarian God.
I did not expect that this subject would create such contention. Articles by Orthodox priests are being labeled as appalling. Writings of St John Chrysostomos are being judged as anti-Semitic and spiritually/theologically dangerous.
I truly feel that the holy Fathers, Saints, Confessors, and Martyrs (especially the Neomartyrs) would not have held to an opinion that those who deny Jesus Christ…..continue to worship the Trinitarian God despite that denial.
But I am not a theologian.
It is time for me to be conscious of my own sinfulness. I think it is also time to cease participating in this thread (and perhaps forums in general). I deeply apologize if I have offended anyone. Please forgive me.
We are in the midst of a mystical journey to our Lord's awesome Passion and glorious Resurrection. May it be blessed with soul-cleansing tears of repentance. I pray that the never-ending joy of our risen Lord Jesus Christ can fill our hearts to overflowing!
Because the Godhead IS Trinitarian, those who worship one Godhead as Creator, do worship the God of the Trinity whether they accept that fact or not.
Many cultures who speak to a pantheon of major gods and lesser gods and other gods also speak of the one god who is the creator of all. That God is the God of the ancestors. When they deny the Trinity, IF they consciously deny the Trinity, it is God's decision how to dispose of this worship that they offer, not ours.
As long as we all believe in a Godhead who is the Creator of All then we share a faith in one God that is ancient and eternal and holy and one, however poorly we've grasped His revelation.
