Yahweh the deceiver



An argument Christian missionaries often like to use against Islam is that Allah is a deceiver, and that he has deceived people. So apparently this is supposed to make Muslims doubtful in their faith, or to turn against their God, because how can one worship a God that deceives? And if the missionaries are looking to turn Muslims away from their God, then they obviously want Muslims to turn towards the God missionaries believe in, the one spoken of in the Bible. So it’s sort of a contrast the missionary is trying to do, ‘look at Allah he deceives, he can’t be a true God, so come to the real God-Yahweh in the Bible’.

Now the big problem for this favorite argument of the missionaries is that when we read the Bible, we find that Yahweh is also described as being a deceiver and using deception. Obviously someone hasn’t done their homework, or what we’re seeing here is a very bad play of double standards, i.e. it’s ok if Yahweh deceives, but when Allah does it then it’s the end of the world and how can you remain a Muslim?

Here is the Bible clearly describing deception being used by Yahweh:

"And if the prophet be deceived and speak a word,I, Jehovah, have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand upon him, and will destroy him from the midst of my people Israel." (Ezekiel 14:9)

According to the above verse, if there is a prophet deceived and speaks a false word because of that deception, for which he will be destroyed, it is Yahweh who has actually deceived that prophet.

It doesn’t end there, according to the Bible, Yahweh approved of and sent a lying spirit:

And the Lord said, ‘Who will entice Ahab into attacking Ramoth Gilead and going to his death there?’ “One suggested this, and another that. Finally, a spirit came forward, stood before the Lord and said, ‘I will entice him.’ “‘By what means?’ the Lord asked. I will go out and be a deceiving spirit in the mouths of all his prophets,’ he said. “‘You will succeed in enticing him,’ said the Lord. ‘Go and do it.’ “So now the Lord has put a deceiving spirit in the mouths of all these prophets of yours. The Lord has decreed disaster for you.” (2 Kings 22:20-23)

Thus it’s become quite clear that the God of the Bible, Yahweh, employs deceit and deception. Will the missionaries be consistent now, condemn their own God, and abandon him?
