    Re: Do Jews, Christians, and Muslims worship the same god.

    Let's have a look at the Sumerian religion:

    The major deities in the Sumerian pantheon included An, the god of the heavens, Enlil, the god of wind and storm, Enki, the god of water and human culture, Ninhursag, the goddess of fertility and the earth, Utu, the god of the sun and justice, and his father Nanna, the god of the moon. During the Akkadian Period and afterward, Inanna, the goddess of sex, beauty, and warfare, was widely venerated across Sumer and appeared in many myths, including the famous story of her descent into the Underworld.

    Sumerian religion heavily influenced the religious beliefs of later Mesopotamian peoples; elements of it are retained in the mythologies and religions of the Hurrians, Akkadians, Babylonians, Assyrians, and other Middle Eastern culture groups. Scholars of comparative mythology have noticed many parallels between the stories of the ancient Sumerians and those recorded later in the early parts of the Hebrew Bible.

    If you look at the various names of God in the Jewish scriptures, they come from the sumerian religion. This was discovered when they uncovered the urgartic bible (a bunch of clay tablets). Besides showing the Sumarian gods, it also had prayers, many who ended up in the psalms , abet sometimes mistranslated into the Hebrew.

    Probably unanswerable, but IMO, if you are really looking for God, you are not going to find him in a book.

    I said Christians were the big umbrella and Catholics are underneath that umbrella. Catholicism is a denomination of Christianity, it isn't all of Christianity.

    Now many Christians do not consider Catholic's, Christian.
    Disagree. First century Christians weren't "Catholics". They were just followers of Christ.

    The first three, but they were a small group, starting to influence Rome, but Constantine took over, and Catholicism invaded Europe for a thousand years.

    and at this point Christ was not the son of God, just a teacher.

    It was the Council of Nicaea that gave him his divinity by vote.

    They have the patient on it.

    The Christians stole the God from the Jews,
    added more Gods to it, changed the rules, and turned on the Jews.

    The Muslims then stole the God,
    eliminated the Christian Gods, instilled their own prophet,
    changed the rules again, and turned on the Jews and the Christians.

    Now God is either a wishy/washy schizophrenic, who simply cannot make up his mind.

    Or they are different Gods.
    God is God regardless of who He is or isn't.

    God cannot be proven.

    The Material conception of God does not exist and this is not always true.

    Since He cannot be understood, God will be any personality or Religion to you and judge you according to that law.

    I have to disagree there.
    some religions are good, some are pure evil.
    What can put you in hell in one religion, can send you to heaven in another.
