- To whom this may concern:
- I am doing a project for school and I am suppose to compare and
contrast Judaism, Christianity and Islam:
If you can help me, I was wondering what are the main comparisons and
contrast of Judism wand Islam and Christianity. I am looking for main
concepts not specifics. For example, the belief of your religion and
what is it based on ,etc
- Thank you very much for your attention and your help
- Judaism is based on the proof of One G-d.
Christianity has 'parts' to G-d, the trinity. This we do not hold is
possible, as that which is non-physical (G-d) cannot be divided.
Christianity believes that G-d made Himself mortal. This is an
imperfect state, and a Perfect Being would not and could not do so.
- Christianity and others are based on belief, Judaism, is based on
proof, based on the indisputable event of Mt. Sinai, where over

- Christianity and others are based on raising man above a mere mortal
being with flaws, to one who is angelic.
Judaism is based on understanding G-d, and realizing man's feeble
state. Even men of greatness are portrayed in the Torah as those who
make errors. Man is not elevated to impossible heights of healers,
miracle workers, or those unaffected by death. Man is mortal, he lives
and dies, he cannot perform miracles without G-d's intervention and
only has one element above an animal,...the rational faculty.
Otherwise, man is an animal.
