    Why are these three religions quarrel as history tells? The sense is that they came from an Abrahamic religions.

      Yes, epus, Christians, Jews, and Muslims all worship the same God that Abraham worshiped except each chooses to do so in distinctively different way.

      Jews were the originals, then Christians copied Judaism and added the New Testament, later on Muslims came and copied both Judaism and Christianity and added on their won stuff.
      Both Christians and muslims thank that they're own updated versions are the truth while Jews think the other two are copycats.

      These are warrior religions. They all incite poeple to kill the heathen for God. Some won't like that statement. Just please for a moment think about it. "God and courntry." The "promised land." God punishing sinners. It's all about defending your land in the name of God.

      Where is the spiritualism. It's in the people, not the reltiougous wars. But, people are not really fighting over God but over the land and saying God says its a just war.

    And let me guess Abraham is Jewish? Once again, the jews are on a piedestal because the source of all religion is Jewish! BS. In matter of religion nothing has been rationally proven therefore it is the fruit of the human imagination. And since the Jews have a complex of inferiority because they are the only people without a land, they have to make us believe that they were at the origin!

      "Human imagination" is not really true. Jesus' life is written in history not just in the Bible. Proof for this world is different with the proof that only our hearts can understand.

        Where does Jesus appear outside the Bible?

          Here are the records of the historians about Jesus called the Christ. Bar Syrapion from Syrian in the year 70 AD wrote to his son regarding Christ.

          He said that whatever happened to the Jews after their king was condemned to die and was taken away from his people and his kingdom?The Jewish Kingdom dispersed...but their very brilliant King never died through his New Law promulgated.

          Flavius Josephus during the time of apostles wrote about Jesus sent to Pilate (Flavius Josephus, 93-94 AD "Antiquitates")

          Tacitus in 116 AD

          Suetonio 120 AD

          Plenus the Minor Bythinia 111-113 AD

          Jesus conception has been foretold 800 years before Christ.

          *Please learn before we condemn. Thanks.

      Every religion has its creation myth. Why should the Jewish faith be any different?

      Hello Mr. Max. How are you doing tonight?

      If I may be allowed to observe, there is no need to guess. You only need to study a little history rather than to make rash statements that are untrue.

      “Abrahamic religions … are the monotheistic faiths emphasizing and tracing their common origin to Abraham or recognizing a spiritual tradition identified with him…The three major Abrahamic religions are, in chronological order of founding, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.” {1} Jews do not claim to be the first. History has established that both the Christian and Muslim philosophies grew out of Judaism. Furthermore, your observations about Jews indicate a significant lack of knowledge about Judaism and other religions in general.
       
      Thanks for contributing to the discussion, Mr. Maxoxam41. It is always interesting to follow your comments.

        That's what got me in the Middle East. Nobody eating pork. (and I'm looking for bacon and eggs for breakfast) Everybody worshiping on Saturday (and here I want to go shopping). Everybody looking to Abraham. Abraham beiing the second most popular name beside Mohammad. And everyone looking alike. You cannot tell the difference between a native Jew, Muslim, or Christian but physical body appearance. And in Jerusalem, that all hold the land to be holy.

    I understand you Shades but why do they have to associate all religions to Abraham? Based upon what? Another creation? Another myth? The problem is that people believe those myths.

      Who is associating ALL religions to Abraham? You got your Jews, Christians, Muslims and Mormons. Who else?

      Well, rather than snide remarks, why don't you share the wealth of your knowledge with silly, uneducated me.

      I can hardly wait to learn how Quetzalcoatl, Ra, Zeus, Vishnu, Coyote, Thor and lots of other gods and their respective faiths tie in. I totally missed that part of history class. Please enlighten me. I live to learn.

        Well stated. There are so many other religions out there that have no link to Abraham. They are every bit as legitimate to their believers. That's the point anyway, belief. If someone doesn't want to believe then they don't have to, but why question others' beliefs or the basis thereof? Unlesss they're hurting people, live and let live.

          I also think if they are hurting or they are inquiring to know more about our religion. Perhaps, someday, they would believe more than us.

          Just another side of the coin though.

          No offense.

        When Jesus was here on earth, He forgave those that worship idols and then proclaimed the true worship by teaching the Lord's Prayer.

          Well, there you have it. The entire 200,000 years (give or take) of human cultures and civilizations from around the globe, all written off as morons, then forgiven, and poof, your religion wins and you get to be "right." Nice work.

          How convenient really. I wonder how many religious figures have claimed all those other religions are bunk this is the truth?

    “Submission” to God (Islam ) existed since man first set foot on Earth. Muhammad isn’t the founder of Islam, but the last and final messenger of Islam. The word “Islam” was first revealed to Muhammad by Allah, but the way of life of ”submission to God’s will” existed since time immorial. Hence, all Prophets of Allah submitted their will to God and abided by the laws which they had to follow. They all preached this fascinating way of life of submission to God.
    Surah Imran 3:67:
    "Abraham was not a Jew nor yet a Christian; but he was true in Faith, and bowed his will to God’s (Which is Islam), and he joined not gods with God.”
