In Christianity it is believed that Jesus Christ was the savior to all humanity and was sent to Earth by his father (God) to pay for the sins of all mankind. In Judaism on the other hand, Jesus was merely a prophet. Both Christianity and Judaism were established in Israel. Christianity was founded around 30 AD in contrast to Judaism which started around 1000 BC. Although a few sacred readings and the form that followers pray are similar in both religions they are also slightly different.
Islam: Also a monotheistic, Abrahamic religion based on the Qur’an (a religious text considered by its followers to be the word of God). A member of Islam is called a Muslim. Muslim’s believe that God is one and incomparable and that the purpose of existence is to worship God. Islam had a tremendous impact on world history as well as the present-day, mostly because of the religion's magnitude. The religion has billions of members, about 1/6 of the world's population.
With all of the differences in the dogmas between Christianity and Mormonism, there is strong evidence that these two faiths cannot be linked together solely on the fact that they both believe in Jesus Christ being the savior of mankind. Many Christians believe that Mormonism is not a true Christian religion, although Mormons make the claim that they are based on their faith in the Christ Jesus as the sole savior of the world. Can Mormonism, a polytheistic religion, truly be considered Christian, when Christianity
What is a monotheistic religion? A monotheistic religion is the belief in one god There is 3 main monotheistic religions Islam, Christianity and Judaism. Today I am going to be talking about only one of the monotheistic religions Islam and comparing it to one of the polytheistic religions Hinduism I will be talking about all the differences between Islam and Hinduism. In Islam god transcends beyond the limits of space, time and gender. Revelation god revealed his will and law to humanity through the Quran.
He doth regulate all affairs, explaining the signs in detail, which ye may believe with certainty in the meeting with your Lord”. Islam and Christianity take a monotheistic (belief in one GOD) approach when it comes to religion. Muslims recognize Allah as the Creator and Christians recognize GOD as the Creator. Both religions believe that human beings have the ability (free will) to choose between good and evil. Another eye opener for me is that Muslims believe that Jesus Christ was born to the Virgin Mary and at the end of the world, Jesus Christ will come again.
In general, there are similar ethical beliefs amongst Christians due to Judaism being the only root of Christian ethics. In general Christian ethics is deontological and authoritarian and what is deemed right or wrong is based on belief in God. The ethics of Christianity is based on the holy bible, which is a library of books that expresses Christian faith. As the bible was written over a long period of time and includes many different teachings and morals, there is no overall biblical morality that can be chosen therefore different denominations choose different parts of the bible to support their beliefs. For instance in Genesis it says that ‘God breathed the breath of man into Adam’s nostrils’ and from this Roman Catholics can argue that as God has given life, only he can take it away so things such as abortion, euthanasia and murder are absolute wrongs.
* Muslims generally believe the Qur'an to be dictated to Muhammad by the archangel Gabriel, with words that came from Allah. Thus, it is inerrant and infallible. * Members of the Baha'i Faith believe that the writings of their founder, Baha'u'llah, are inerrant and infallible. However, there are exceptions. For example: * Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints recognizes four canonized scriptures: the Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price.
Also, Muhammad listed them together in the Hadith, which is a record of the words and deeds of the Prophet, his family, and his companions, when he was asked to define Islam. Islam is a monotheistic religion that is based on the revelations that was received by the Prophet Muhammad in 622 CE. Then it was later recorded in the Qur'an, which the Islam's most sacred book. The faith then spread very rapidly and today Islam is the second most largest religion in the world. The word Islam means "submission," which means reflecting the religion's central tenet of submitting to the will of God.
Mormons payers are ways of communicating with God. Comparing and contrasting the Islamic to the Mormon, both claims Prophets revealing the book are the guideline for their beliefs Qur’an and The Book of Mormon. Both claim the final prophet of God, Prophet Mohammed and Prophet Joseph Smith. Both were the long lost faith as the one true religion. Islam makes claim that Adam and Abraham were Muslims.
The four other pillars include, fasting (Saum), prayer (Salat), and pilgrimage (Hajj), alms-giving or charity (Zakat), Shahada is a declaration that is made by followers of the Islamic faith, which says, “there is no true God except Allah,” and also says that, “Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. Christianity and other religions whose bible teaches that God is part of the Trinity (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit); Islamic faith teaches that Allah is the one and only God. Muslims also firmly believe that Muhammad is Allah’s greatest prophet, and it is important that those who practice the Islamic acknowledge and recognize him as such. They also believe that Allah used Muhammad to convey the last and final revelation (Slick, 1995-2010). The second pillar, Salat (Prayer), is a prayer that consists of confessions of sins and concluding with purification of the soul.
