No, they're not.

But you can (and often will) do quite a bit of functional programming in
Lisp, as it lends itself quite naturally to that way of thinking.

But in (Common) Lisp you also have CLOS, which is a rather different way
to do object oriented programming. It will widen your horizon in more
than one way.

The advice to learn just one programming language at a time seems sound,
though. I would take it, if I were you.
