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.

Ill bet most of the money comes from Saudi Arabia..
Yep, sounds like Omaha.
Is that the masonic lodge?
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?
Ground zero for the Franklin cover-up.

Yeah that whole killing your daughters because they dishonor the family because they were raped is real popular with Christians and Jews!............
islam is incompatible with freedom liberty and life.....
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?
One “religion” wants to chop off the heads of the others.
WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG???
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.”
Exactly — the Islamic empire merged together indian mathematicians, greek geometrists and philosophers, iranian astronomers etc.
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
