Tri-Faith Project to Construct Multi-Million Dollar Interfaith Complex in America's Heartland
The Arab-American News ^ | December 25, 2011 | Nick Meyer

Posted on 01/02/2012 10:31:48 AM PST by GiovannaNicoletta

The similarities between the three Abrahamic faiths of Judaism, Christianity and Islam are well known to those who study each religion, but many people practicing these faiths are not quite as aware.

A new project that its creators call the first development of its kind in the world hopes to shed light on those similarities with the building of the new Tri-Faith Project, a large privately-funded development in Omaha on a former country club and golf course that spans 35 acres and will comprise three sites: Temple Israel, the Episcopal Diocese of Nebraska (including a church) and the American Institute of Islamic Studies and Culture (which includes a mosque), as well as the large central Tri-Faith Center connecting the three religious centers for common events and meetings.

Guess who’ll be making all of the concessions in this project?

Will the Christians be able to display a cross or Crucifix?

Will Muslims have a “call to prayer” 5 times a day?

The differences between them, which are key to each, are well known to those who study each religion as well. John 8:58-59 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

See also John 7:29-30. 1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

It basically breaks down to passages such as these where Jesus Himself said He was God manifested in the flesh and not a prophet.
They took up stones against Him because they saw His statement as sacrilegious.

JMO on one major difference.

One place I’ll never visit.

Seriously what will be the difference between this place and a Mason hall?

The fundamental tenets of Islam have virtually NOTHING in common with the religion of Abraham or with Christianity. Those that know nothing of substance about any of these religions claim that the common thread of monotheism is sufficient basis for lumping Islam with Judaism and Christianity. Do they hope thereby to lay on Islam a veneer of acceptability and humane-ness?

Unfortunately some of the fundamental tenets of islam are similar -- at least superficially to Judaism, from whom Mohammed ripped off much for his philosophy

The Islamic 5 pillars: Monotheism, 5 prayers daily, fasting, alm-giving and pilgramage to Mecca are corruptions, but still based on Judaic laws.

Islam is a reaction to the complexity of Christianity by rejecting all of it in fact of a strict theocratic monotheism

“Islam is a reaction to the complexity of Christianity . ..”

Christianity has been ill served by taking on the trappings of medieval European monarchies, and thereby succeeding in confusing and burying the simple central truth stated in, for example, the Apostle Paul’s letter to the church at Ephesus, Chapter 2, verses 8, 9 and 10, and elsewhere, in particular throughout Paul’s letter to the church at Rome.

Yet you forget the Oriental Christianity that was separated from Western and Eastern Orthodoxy for centuries and yet the beliefs expressed in the Assyrian, Syriac, Malankara, Malabara etc. Churchs are in line with orthodoxy

” . .. Oriental Christianity -— was separated from Western and Eastern Orthodoxy for centuries . . ..”

In connection therewith, I highly recommend reading “The Lost History of Christianity,” by Philip Jenkins, Harper One 2008. Among other points of great interest, it reveals the true source of the wondrous advances in philosophy, astronomy, mathematics, et cetera, that erroneously have been attributed to Muslim “scholars.”

In addition to the monks and other scholars connected with seminaries, monasteries, and other centers of study and learning associated with Eastern Christian churches commonly known as Jacobite and Nestorian, that could be understood simply as “ancient Christian denominations mainly active outside Europe.” in the words of author Philip Jenkins..

The problem is that Nestorianism died out in the early centuries. The Assyrian Church of the East in contrast takes much of its doctrine on the hypostatic union from Babai the Great
