Christians seem further away from the one "God".

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?

Submitted by David (United Kingdom), Jul 6, 2005 at 10:31

One thing I can't help noticing is the stream of statements coming from Christians who claim that "Allah" is not god and it is they and the Jewish people who are connected. Further examination of the three faiths shows that Christianity is the odd one out. For instance one of the main attributes of the Christian faith is the worship of a man, or that god became man to be among his children. This belief is more reminiscent of older faiths that worshipped a great many Gods. There is also with doubt historical evidence showing close links between modern day Christianity and the "old" faiths. One example is the days of celebration in Christianity that also fall on days that were held sacred to polytheistic faiths. Writers have also talked about how Christianity was made to appeal to the wider masses who found the worship of one Lord strange by stories of a son of god and him being part of greater three. Devotion to Imagery and statues especially among Catholics is also another marked difference that is not to be found in the Jewish and Islamic faith
