or, you could say that they are the same being, but differently percepted by different cultural groups.Dogbreath wrote:My question is why does Islam try to be inclusive of Judaism and Christianity? As I've shown via names of God in the OT (and Emmzee in the New) that Allah equaling Jehovah would be contradicting many things about both religions. I'm not saying Islam is somehow evil because Allah is not Jehovah (it does have much truth to it), just that modern day religious "experts" shouldn't claim they are the same-they are two different beings.
so, after all, all the main religions believe that there is one God. That that God is omnipotent, and the creator of everything and everyone. thats all that counts. thats why I think those experts are right about this.
Lemme make an example out of this, even though a little banale.
A serial killer gets thrown in prison for life, after murdering a family. after 50 years, when the news of his death by old age gets on the newspapers, people talk about him. "you remember that guy, Abe? he was that red-headed bloke who gunned down that family back in the JFK days. you remember him?" , "yeah, Moe, I remember him, but his hair was blonde, not red-headed." they are talking about the same person, but during those 50 years things have changed in their memories. hence the distinctions.
