[REBLOG] CHRISTIAN AND ISLAMIC JESUS: NOT THE SAME

Christianity and Islam teach us there is only one God. At a recent community meeting to improve communication between Christians and Muslims, it was stated by a member of the audience that since both religions believe in Jesus, we all share the same God. This statement generated much emotion and controversy. As the evening progressed, it became clear that the meeting attendees knew very little about any religion other than their own. It also became clear to the Christian and Islamic religious leaders in attendance that a few Christians and Muslims were unfamiliar with some aspects of their own faith.

  2. The Christian concept of the Trinity is quite at odds with Islam. I think they might have done better to say No to Plotinus in the third century and stick with whatever model of the divine they had then.

    Or adopt Plotinus completely, but that wouldn’t work with the Jewish deity they were basing theres on.

  3. Well put, you have struggled with a complex issue. Explored it well, and brought God’s love to bear on the problem. What better way forward is there. I already knew the differences, you have still given me food for thought and prayer.
