Contradictions Between Religions

???????????????????????????????Historically, Judaism begins with Abraham, the father of Judaism and Islam as well. Christianity broke off from Judaism with the belief of Jesus of Nazareth being the son of god. “Christ” is really a title that is applied to Jesus. The idea is that Jesus, being the son of god, died for our sins. If you believe this, you don’t need to continue to follow many of the beliefs and practices of Judaism. For Islam, however, Muhammad is the prophet of God and they often see Jesus as another prophet but not as “the” prophet and certainly not as the son of God. These three in turn also break off into several different sects, all who believe slightly different things.

Even though the belief that Islam, Judaism and Christianity are alike because they are all religions of Allah. Still some contradictions are found in their beliefs. Here are some:
The first contradiction: Judaism and Islam says God is one, indivisible, cannot be separated into three aspects/incarnations. While in Christianity, (Some sects) speaks of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
The second contradiction is that Judaism says that God would never allow/enable a ‘virgin birth’. Christianity and Islam the belief is that Mary gave birth, though a virgin.
The third contradiction is that Judaism and Islam believe that every human should speak directly to God, while in Christianity Jesus claims in the ‘new testament’ that the ‘only way’ to God is through him.
The forth is that Judaism and Islam say that no human can ever die for the sins of others, in Christianity the belief is that Jesus died for the sins of mankind .

The fifth is that Judaism believes that no man gets a ‘second coming’ while in Christianity and Islam they believe that Jesus will have a ‘second coming’.

The Sixth is that Judaism has no concept of ‘hell’. Wile in Islam, . In some Christians believe non-believers go to ‘hell’.

The seventh is that Judaism believe that there is no ‘devil’, the Jewish ‘Satan’ is just an ordinary angel, under God’s control. While Christianity describes ‘Satan’ as a devil and ‘fallen’ angel. In Islam, however, Satan was a jinn created from fire.

The Eighth is that Judaism and Islam say that all humans are born pure, and innocent, as a white paper. in Christianity the belief is that all humans are born with ‘original sin’.

The ninth is that Christianity believes in actively ‘witnessing’ and encouraging people to convert to Christianity. While Judaism forbids Jews from trying to convert anyone to Judaism; in Islam, however, all must convert to Islam or pay a fine to remain Christian or Jewish and live as 2nd class citizens (all others must convert or die).
The 10th contradiction is that Judaism says that we are ALL equally God’s children. In Islam the majority claim that the prophets are perfect and have never sinned, others believe the prophets sinned and repented. In Christianity, however, they say that Jesus was ‘god’s son’ above all others
The 11th contradiction is that in both Islam and Judaism there is no concept of original sin. While some sects of Christianity believe in “original sin” to justify the need for a saviour. Others believe that humankind cannot keep from sinning and requires a saviour to cleanse them.
The 12th contradiction is that Judaism considers the ‘messiah’ is a normal person, mortal man who must fulfil all the Jewish messianic prophecies in one normal, mortal lifetime. In Christianity, Jesus was the ‘messiah’ and will fulfil the prophecies when he ‘returns’. But in Islam Jesus was a prophet, not a “son of God” and Muhammad is the last prophet.

The 13th contradiction is that Judaism says that the righteous of all faiths will reach ‘Gan Eden’ or ‘Garden of Eden’. While some Christians insist that only those who ‘know Christ’ can reach heaven. In Islam, however, believe that some Jews and Christians will reach Paradise, Muslims reach paradise and have better chance than Jews and Christians.

The 14th contradiction is that Islam claims the Torah and Christian bible were corrupted (with no proof). While in Judaism The Torah remains unchanged. In Christianity however, differences from the original Torah is found .
The final estimated population in terms of religious is estimated as 7,095,217,980 (July 2013 est.) the rate is: Christians 31.50% (2.2 billions), Muslims 23.20% (1.7 billion), Jews 0.22% (13.5 millions).
Other religions constitute 20.92%, they are: 13.8% (1 billion) , Buddhist 6.77% (376 million), Sikh 0 0.35%. Other religions 10.95%, while non-religious 9.66% (1 billion), atheists 2.01% (2010 est.). According to world fact book of facts.
