Calling Jesus God is Heresy: Karen Armstrong

The famous English author Karen Armstrong, while discussing IIIT’s recent publication “The Concept of God in the Judaic, Christian and Islamic Traditions”, remarked that calling Jesus God is heresy.

From the practically universal perspective of the nearly 1.6 billion Muslim people, the Qur’an is regarded as “the word of Allah; God” 1. The predominant views among Western writers are that the Qur’an is not a divinely revealed scripture. Some hold that view because they do not accept the notion of divine revelation and some do not believe in the existence of God altogether. Some writers who believe in God, Prophets and divinely revealed scriptures hold that the Qur’an does not fall in this category of sacred books.
