Yes, surprisingly not only is the old and new testiment God the same god.
The one God of every religion I have ever heard of which has one God is the same God.
I have many times heard Muslims, Christians and Jews deny this simple fact, but if you look at the history of these religions, the truth is
inescapable. They are all of a single historical heritage, and their claim to authority is the same matriarchial heritage in the house of David.
As far as I can see there is only 1, One True God. And many of the believers in this God wish to wipe each other off the face of the planet for
believing in a false God.
The various interpretations of the nature of that God, usually regarding his preferences is what sets them apart.
The One True God, it seems always favors the local culture, whether it involves subjugation of a particular sub group, the right to maime those who
offend the most rightious, or violence towards women.
Yea verily I tell you, there is no force in the universe as powerful as ignorance.
I have to say the description of The One True God's personal preferences and values I often hear suggest he is a hateful, selfish, destructive, vain,
I think the most important question in religion is, someday when you are interviewed by a higher power, and asked if you submit yourself to it's
power and authority, what criteria will you use to judge that it is truly your One True God.
What values, virtues, qualities does the One True God have which will convince you of it's authenticity, and worthyness.
Will you simply kneel before the first magnificent bastard that comes along?
If the One and only God is a total freakshow, would you walk away in respect to the higher authority of the virtues you hold dear?
In the end this may be the one and only question which you are asked.
Do you truly have any virtue of your own?
