Hi Y. Californian,

Jews do not consider Jesus and Muhammad righteous prophets. Do you agree? Christians take Jesus as the Son of God. Christians view God through Trinity. Jews do not have anything like Trinity. It's against their belief to consider someone as son of God. In Christianity you cannot separate God from Jesus. If you take one element out of Trinity, then it's not Christianity anymore. Then how could you say Christians and Jews worship the same God? Jews are still waiting for their Messiah.

Yes.

I see where you're coming from, Jackson, but I don't quite agree with you. I tend to believe that all three religions worship the same god, but view Him differently (which is essentially the second interpretation of God that I listed in my prior post). That is, they're all talking about the same divine being, but the three religions can't agree on the specifics of His nature. I might agree with you that such differences suggest wholly different beings if not for the intertwined history of the religions, and the fact that all three cite "their" god as the one who spoke to Adam, Abraham, Moses, et cetera.

It's also important to note that the two later religions (Christianity and Islam) both hold rather specific views about God's interactions with the religions that preceded them. Christians clearly believe that they worship the same God as the Jews, as evidenced by their inclusion of the Old Testament in the Bible. Furthermore, Christians acknowledge that Jesus was Jew, and was not necessarily trying to establish an entirely new religion, but rather to reform Judaism. In its earliest days, Christianity was indeed just considered a Jewish sect. Islam, in turn, acknowledges that the Hebrew and Christian Bibles both have divine influence, but also holds that they have been corrupted by man. The fact that Islam shows a level of tolerance towards "people of the book" not granted to pagan religions, also demonstrates a recognition that they worship the same God, albeit in the wrong way.

This may seem like a dumb example, but if I talk to two people and one believes that God has the appearance of an old man, and the other does not, I would not say they worship different gods simply because they can't agree on all of His characteristics.

Hi Y. Californian,

I consider it my privilege talking to knowledgeable friend like you.

If someone does not believe in Jesus, then would you consider him a Christian? If a certain Christian does not believe in Jesus, then he is not believing in Christian God, and he is no longer a Christian. Do you consider Jesus and Christian God different entities? In my prior posting I said Christians view God through Trinity. In Christianity you cannot separate God from Jesus. If you take one element out from Trinity, then it's not Christianity anymore. Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are not three different entities. They are aspects of single being. Do you agree? If you agree, then that means you accept that if someone does not believe in Jesus, then he is not worshipping Christian God. If someone does not consider Jesus as son of God and not even His prophet, then there is not point in saying he is worshipping Christian God.

Muslims consider Jesus as God's prophet. They consider his birth as one of God's miracle. There is also a chapter in Qur'an which discusses birth of Jesus. Muslims too do not consider Jesus as son of God. You are correct, Jesus did not bring any new religion. He was there just to reform Judaism. Jews do not list Bible in their Scriptures. But Christians do list some of Hebrew Scriptures in their list. Listing does not make Judaism and Christianity one religion. If Christians include Qur'an in their Scriptures, then that would not make Christianity and Islam a one religion.

Jews are still waiting for their Messiah in Jerusalem. Muslims also wait Jesus' second coming before the Day of Judgement. Many consider real Judaism a orthodox and old religion. Well, It is not. If a Jew says I worship a god who has white beard and a Muslim says I worship a god who has black beard, then it's a minor conflict. And you can say they worship the same God just differ on His appearance. Though it is not considered good thing in Judaism and Islam to compare God with the worldly things. If someone does not recognize Jesus as son of God, then you can not say it's a minor conflict. It's a totally and utterly different conflict. When someone does not consider Trinity as three different aspects of single being, then that means he is talking about some different god.

I'm not saying there are different gods for this universe. There is only One and will always be One. Hinduism and Sikhkism also recongnizes there is one god. That does not mean they worship the same god as Jews. Jews and Muslims do not believe in Holy Ghost. They have an angel called Gabriel in their religions.

I intend no offence. I respect all three religions. I respect Jesus, Muhammad, and Moses.

Best wishes, Jackson
ya they worship the same god, but they have different beliefs, and Allah is an arabic name which means God in english.
Dear reader,

Hallelujah that you asked this question. There is no comparison between Christianity and any other religion. There is no one like Jesus. He told Peter to sheathe his sword, saying, "Those who live by the sword shall die by it." His message is that of love and forgiveness. 'I do not condemn thee," he said to the woman caught in adultry. There is no hatred in him. No evil. Compare this with some others. Did Jesus ever fight for an earthly kingdom?

He is the son of God. They lack understanding who think that God had a wife. It is a metaphor, he used for himself. The closest he came to calling himself God was when he said, "I Am before Abraham was," to the Pharisees. To the uninitiated I Am is the name Jehovah used for himself when speaking to Moses. The Muslims are the children of Ishmael, the son of Abraham's concubine. They can have a right in the inheritance of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob only through believing in the only name given on earth Jesus who is the Messiah, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.

Therefore, Jews and Christians worship the same God, named Jehovah or Yahweh. His Messiah or Christ is Jesus. Muslims worship a different entity altogether, like Hindus worship Brahma.

Shalom.

well,

why didnt you talk about ur prophet anonymous and said your relation with him, i mean Jewish relation with Moses, Muslims believe in Jesus as they believe in all messengers and Prophets of ALLAH, and i think comparing Muslims with Hindus shows that you are ignorant about This Religion, with no offense to Hindus people, iam just showing the fact that there is no relation between Hindus and muslims the same as Jewish and Christians, Although, u say you worship the Same God but their belives are different even if they share their books ,Moreover, i think the three religions believe in the same God but each one has different views concerning the history of the religion, the events and the facts........ "Ibraham's second wife Hajar" but not concubine while "sarah" his first wife was sterile she suggested him to marry "Hajar" with whom he got his first Son "Ismail"
