The simple answer is that no, not all Abrahamic religions are the same. I started composing a thread (currently twelve A4 pages long in font size 8,
not even half-completed yet) to explain why this is the case, and why only two of the faiths in question are to be considered genuine 'Abrahamic'
revelations. However, in some dream guidance a month or so back, I was advised not to continue with setting up that thread at this time. Basically
because there were some more important things for me to focus on, with regard to my professional career.
Judaism is the precursor, Christ is the fulfilment.
Look carefully at the doctrine, the minutiae of each faith, and you will see that the above is true, based on Christ being the fulfillment of Old
Testament prophecies, the mediator of a New Covenant, giving freedom and grace to all who follow, replacing strict obedience to the laws of the
Covenant of Moses (which was designed to emphasise the need for holiness of conduct).
Islam, you will discover, is designed to undermine the lasting legacy and ministry of Christ as described in the New Testament record, (that legacy
and ongoing ministry being attested by generation upon generation of Christians who have come to a personal, mystical relationship with the Cosmic
Christ as Supreme Deity in His part of the Holy Trinity of the One Father, the First Cause, also including His omnipresent Spirit).
Islam denies that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that He died and rose again, or that He ascended to the highest realm of the heavens, in order to
resume His place as timeless, eternal Lord of Creation, the symbolic & literal Firstborn among many sons and daughters of God. Islam denies that God
the Father wants to bless His children on Earth with the presence and power of His Spirit, or that He wants to heal, instruct and show each of us who
He is, the good plans He has for us and so forth. Islam teaches that God is unknowable, and that absolute submission to every dictate, intimation or
simple whim of Mohammed is the only way to please God.
Which, of course, is nonsense - particularly noticeable as such if we consider Christ to have spoken the Truth in the ''Sermon on the Mount'', or
in issuing the traditional ''Lords Prayer''. Seriously - go read those two New Testament passages, and you'll see how offensive it is to the
character of Jesus and His testimony - that Mohammed name-drops Jesus, in with his otherwise brutal vitriol, daring to put words into Jesus' mouth
which deny the very words Jesus is recorded by His closest followers as having said 600 years earlier.
Basically, the doctrine of Islam (such as can be extrapolated from the largely incoherent ramblings of the Quran, and the fudging of the Hadith and
Sunnah) serves only to effect a brutalising of the Abrahamic tradition, and to spark war, chaos (etc) in vast swathes of humanity - by so doing,
instilling doubts as to the validity of the Abrahamic revelations of Judaism and Christianity.
Islam was designed by the spiritual power who is the enemy of our souls - 'he' (the infernal "It" in truth) designed it as a clever counterfeit of
Judaism, and I will say so openly. I would challenge any Muslim to a debate, if I had the time. One day, I will make the time, but for now, suffice
to say I know enough about Judaism, Christianity and Islam to properly analyse the doctrine, practice and traditions of each. I also enjoy a mystical
communion with the Father & Christ, by the Spirit - a mysterious and beautiful edification and renewal of mind and spirit, the prime relationship that
exists in all eternity (the basis of all our human affections is found in the mysterious 'self-yet-separate' relations of the Divine - this unique
and primordial condition of His being cannot be fathomed by Human wisdom, but must be experienced by faith). A relationship with the actual personal
God, over and above all things, is available to all who call on Jesus, who trust in Him.
I expect an answer which fails to take into account anything I have actually said, and demonstrates that most people in this world just like to
categorise things in neat little boxes, preferring to ignore the challenge of Christ to be 'born again' into a Kingdom that is not earthly in its
nature. It takes some courage to break with the standard propaganda issued by the antichrist crowd, particularly to go and research each of the three
faiths, in the order in which they appeared on Earth, in order to witness the actuality of what I have stated above*...
* Which is, in summary:
= precursor of Abrahamic revelation;
= fulfillment of Abrahamic revelation, the great gift of God to Mankind, and to each individual..
= damaging counterfeit, many lies (cleverly interpolated with bits of truth, to look 'spiritual'..)
