There are different scripture readings for the different religions that exist on the face of the globe for each of the different believers. The different scriptures include the Hebrew scripture, i.e., the Christian Old Testament, the New Testament for Christianity, and then there is the Quran for the Islam religion.
Regarding to the case of comparing the different scripture readings, initiating with the first and foremost the old testament which was followed and practiced by the Hebrews while their neighboring communities who believed in many gods created artistic depictions statues for their gods. Reserving this scripture was very vital for the Hebrew community. They were though encouraged and advised to love strangers and non-believers (Deuteronomy 10:19).
The Christianity New Testament on the other hand, promoted the belief from their scripture having a message for folks everywhere even to non-believer with the aim and hope they may convert to their religions (1 Corinthians 14:21). They are encouraged to be welcoming to strangers and foreigners via being saints’ and extending hospitality to strangers.
The Islamic Quran teaches that Muhammad was the last and great prophet, who completed the teachings and messages that people have received for a long time and therefore, these teachings were preludes to Judaism and Christianity.
In the current situation of belief in the world today there has been a great amount of tension among the different religions especially among the people from Mecca and Jerusalem and even Medina. This has been propelled by the fact of political tension between the folks, and this has affected other parts of the countries ranging from economies and transport deterioration.
There has been known attacks coming forth from ancient beliefs propagated by historical events over claim for land, riches and various economic resources in the early age. The scripture quotes of which encouraged friendliness and interaction between the religions in the past is now under stress with each end arguing one’s religion is right. The Islam religion has been argued to be very strict and biased to women in the 21st century.
The factions are under much debate since it matters little that each faith has serene factions, when some of this beliefs also have violent oriented extremists with rules not fair to human kindness. All three religions consent to the slaying of citizens in order to get at their enemies and the 3 comprise religious scripture that designate apocalyptic end-time predictions.
The geography of the realm has affected the political decision making of each group since to their conflict of interest in the natural resources. The religious justification for war from these religions provides distinct examples of the power of self-filling prophecy. The regions have been known to border one another since time immemorial and there has been a little while era where and when Jews got along with Christians, Muslims lived peacefully among Jews, and the Christians got along with Muslims. But, the common interest and stress on the various available resources brought about the potential for war and violence.
These instances are exemplified by the ongoing tension on the Gaza strip which borders the Israel and Palestinian nations and of which most international bodies are trying to mediate and cool down the high political temperatures.
