Dear Bill,

you have missed the point. even if Jesus (AS) is the only way to the "Father", what we are discussing here is if the "Father" of Christians (or the entire triuine God) equates with the God of the Jews and that of Muslims. Of course we all view our own versions of scripture as correct, and others as mistaken to some extent, that is the nature of monotheism.

As a spiritual descendent of the Jewish faith how can you claim they have no access through their scripture to God? Even if the message of Jesus supposedly superscedes theirs if they are faithful to the original law surely it is stil valid.

Also your arguement is entirely faith based, and as all three faiths draw on divinely inspired/revealed texts, how do you discern empirically which is correct. It is essentially impossible, therefor your arguement falls down somewhat in presenting the matter as closed. I suggest to you that only God knows the truth.

Submitting....
