Many Muslims believe that G-d judges all equally.JUDAISM- The “law”/covenant is seen as a blessing, not a burden that can never be fulfilled. Being perfect isn’t the point in Judaism. Being aware of the 613 commandments, we have G-d on our minds almost hourly. That is part of the covenant, we obey G-d’s laws and G-d ensures Judaism will survive forever.CHRISTIANITY (including ‘messianics’)- Views the commandments as restrictive and impossible (except the 10 in stone). It is believed in Christianity that the death of Jesus was necessary because living by the laws is impossible and view the commandments as something of a curse.ISLAM- Views religious laws as part of the religion and of being observant and submissive to G-d, much as Jews do.JUDAISM- forbids Jews from trying to convert anyone to JudaismCHRISTIANITY (including ‘messianics’)- believes in actively witnessing' and encouraging people to convert to ChristianityISLAM- all must convert to Islam or pay a fine to remain Christian or Jewish and live as 2nd class citizens (all others must convert or die)JUDAISM- The Torah remains unchangedCHRISTIANITY (including ‘messianics’)- differences from the original TorahISLAM-claims the Torah and Christian bible were corrupted (with no proof)JUDAISM/ISLAM- no concept of original sinCHRISTIANITY (including ‘messianics’)- some sects of Christianity believe in “original sin” to justify the need for a savior. Others believe that humankind cannot keep from sinning and requires a savior to cleanse them.Thanks Paperback for the majority of this with some tweaking by Qua Patet Orbis and Myself (Aravah).
