The three major religions of the Western world all believe in one God—the God of Abraham. The history can be traced back to 2200 BC, when a newborn baby was abandoned and left to die, deep in a dark cave. The angel Gabriel appeared before the baby and saved him. That newborn was Abraham, and in his later years, he was told that if he praised only the one true God, his descendants would inherit the land of milk and honey, the Promised Land, the land between the Jordan River and the Great Sea (the Mediterranean). Belief in one god, or monotheism, was unheard of in Abraham’s time—all believed in several gods and goddesses, each with varying purpose and power.
Abraham had two sons. The first was Ishmael, born to Abraham’s servant Hagar, and the second, Isaac, born to Abraham’s wife Sarah. Jews and Christians are the descendants of Isaac, and Muslims, the descendants of Ishmael. Today, followers of all three religions believe in the same God—the God of Abraham. In Arabic, God translates to Allah. Therefore, Christians speaking in Arabic, pray to Allah, that is, Allah is God.
An infidel is one who believes in many gods or no god; therefore, Jews, Christians and Muslims are not infidels.
Perhaps, we aren’t that different after all.
