    Is Mormonism different enough from Christianity be its own religion? It has its own prophets, miracles and history....

    Plus there is the spook flying around. Not sure when he was invented.

    The only monotheistic religion with three gods.

    So I'd say a lot of differences.
    You're back to talking about the dogmatic differences between the religions. I get there are dogmatic differences between the religions, but what I want to know, is do they worship two. Different. Gods. And if they do, what are the differences between the actual divine beings?

    So, again, the same God gave two different groups two entirely different visions of who he is? Doesn't that seem a bit counter-productive for an allegedly all-knowing being with an intelligence beyond imagining?

    True. But the God of Isreal, and the God of Christianity are, essentially, the same God. Ian mentioned the "triune" nature of the Christians God, however, that difference only exists because Christians belive that the Messiah has already come, and Jews do not. The actual God (the Godhead, hif you will), is essentially the same, which is why Christians include the Old Testament in their Bible - to demonstrate the nature of the God they worship. This is why it always amuses me when Christians, when faced with some of the things their God did, always respond with, "Oh, that's the Old Testament, that was the Jews, it doesn't have anything to do with us,"

    But...the whole reason the Old Testament is included is because you worship the same God, and it is to demonstrate the nature of that God. If you are going to claim ownership of the same God, then you have to accept ownership of everything that God did, including the stuff that you may be uncomfortable with, or that doesn't exactly fit with your religion's dogma.

    However, back to your observation, this is why I specifically asked about God vs Allah; because the God of Islam seems very different from Christianity, particularly in the doctrine, and dogma proscribed to each.

    Once again, you seem to be falling back on describing the difference in the dogma, and doctrine of each religion. That wasn't what I asked. I asked for the difference in the nature of the divine being that each religion worships.

    So, the same God delivered to three different groups three completely different doctrinal dictates, and each one is the "true vision" of the nature of that God? Really?!?! But God created man, not the other way around? You're sure about that?

    law and grace is dependent on what you believe... you know that crap written by man to control the masses who are idiot enough to believe.
