Malaaika,

Yes, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam DO each worship one GOD. However, the God Islam worships is NOT the same Sovereign Almighty Lord God the Jews and Christians worship. You see, GOD Almighty created the world good. Yes good. But Adam and Eve were deceived by Satan, the fallen angel who was created by God because of his rebellion against creator GOD, and they sinned against the will of their creator GOD. Ever since this tragedy in the Garden of Eden, mankind has been in rebellion against GOD. It's human nature. We all sin.

If you pay close attention to the Hebrew prophets of the Old Testament, they all spoke of a savior, whose blood would have redeeming power for all those you would believe in him. This gets us back to the original sin in the Garden of Eden. The only possible way for the Lord God of Israel to reconcile man's sin to his glory was to offer his only begotten son to pay the debt sins of the world. Jesus was sinless...perfect in the eyes of his father. Jesus' blood on the cross paid for your sins. Now it is time for you to ask for his spirit to endwell you or reject this free gift of salvation.

John1: 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning.

3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood[a] it.

6 There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. 9 The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.[b]

10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12Y et to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent,[c] nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God.

14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only,[d] who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

15 John testifies concerning him. He cries out, saying, "This was he of whom I said, 'He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.' " 16 From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another. 17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only,[e][f]who is at the Father's side, has made him known.

John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,[f] that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.[g] 19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God."[
