It is known to be the inspired Word of God, which sees the detailed formation of Christians key beliefs, most notably the nature of God, revelation, salvation, the divinity and humanity of Jesus Christ, as well as the death, resurrection and ascension of Christ. Major principle beliefs include: God created all that is seen and unseen. Christians believe that God is the creator of the universe. This is based on various Bible passages.
In detail we will discuss the relationship between inspiration and inerrancy. And then, before concluding this paper we will discuss how the answers to these questions provide structure to how we as Christians should live our lives. To a Christian who has accepted God as their personal Lord and Savior the Bible has authority. The same should not be said for someone who hasn’t made that confession. As a Christian we have accepted that the Bible contains the true Word of God written by apostles who received divine inspiration to guide the recorded works.
All three religions belief in a Holy Scripture, Judaism believes in the Torah, Christianity the Bible and Islam the Quran. Christianity by some can be viewed as a continuation of Judaism, in the sense that both share part of the same book. The Torah is known by Christians as the Old Testament in the Bible. Christianity is mostly based on what is known as the New Testament which is the beginning of Jesus life on planet earth as the son of God. In the Judaism religion it is not believe that the “messiah has come” where as Christians have viewed Jesus as the Messiah who was here once and whom will return again for its followers.
Christianity believe that God the father, the son and the Holy Spirit. Judaism believe that their God is not made up of parts, while the people in Islam believe that their God is an immaterial, invisible, and is feared in omnipotence. These difference are but could just a few reasons why the three religions faced from believers who read the bible in the early days. To strengthen the traditions and practices behind these religions, a person must study each religion traditions and practices.

Evidential Apologetic also called Natural Theology emphasizes reason and rational truth and logic as the reasons why a person faith must exist in Christianity. The epistemological questions that come forth in ordinary religious life tend to focus on the epistemic evaluation of the most basic tenets of the religious worldview in question; the existence of God, the creation of the world and God's relation to it, and the possibility of recognizing divine action in the world and divine revelation. An Evidentialist defense of religion typically relies
The Koran on the other hand teaches that only those who believe will be saved. “In the end, we deliver our messengers and those who believe: thus is it fitting on our part that we should deliver those who believe” (Koran10:103). The theme of salvation therefore has within its grasp the relativity of religious facts. This goes to show that with the parturition of various religions there is the derivative on which salvation is defined and executed, bearing in mind such relativity, the religion of Christianity and Islam shares similarities and differences in relation to their views or beliefs. The religion of Christianity began with the mission of Jesus Christ, over 2000 years ago in Judea, now contemporary Israel.

The common belief today is that our nation, the United States of America, was founded on Christian principles by colonists who fled from religious persecution. Most American’s are under the impression that the Founding Fathers came from the same background as the Puritans or Pilgrims and instilled their Christian beliefs into the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. But the early presidents and patriots were generally Deists or Unitarians, who believed in one God, but found fault with organized religion. When you examine the Declaration of Independence or the Bill of Rights, you will see the absence of any reference to Christianity and the Constitution has no reference to God or religion except to ensure it wasn’t part of America’s framework. The United States of America was not founded on Christian principles but on the enlightened principle of human rights, that all people are created equal, and endowed with certain rights, among those are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Followers of the Christian faith believe that Jesus is the Messiah, so it's doctrine is based on the life and teachings of Jesus.

Church and State: Religion in America has led to many heated debates going all the way back to our founding fathers. Jefferson brought to light the idea of separation of church and state. The separation is revolved around keeping religion out of politics, or vis versa.

It touches most aspects of government leading to how much the federal government incorporates religion yet restricts states from doing the same.
