The Underlying Unity of the Three Monotheistic Religions

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

allfaithsThe three Western monotheistic religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) are all grounded in ideals of faith, love, and moral rules of living, with each religion emphasizing one particular ideal.

Judaism emphasizes rules of living, which, if followed, would normalize our physical and social life on Earth, providing an environment that encourages the evolution of the soul.

Christianity emphasizes love — love of neighbor and love of God.

Islam emphasizes faith — “There is no God but God.”

But again, all three contain all three. It’s really all the same religion.
