“Australia is the most successful multi-cultural society on earth”

Malcolm Turnbull

 

With both passion and moderation, this will still be true in 100 years

 

This is the Challenge for our community –

This is the Challenge for Christianity and Islam


                                                     


Wisdom from the Mother of Abrahamic faith

“Both Christianity and Islam are 'daughter religions' of Judaism in the sense that they take the Hebrew Bible and Jewish monotheism (belief in just one God) as a starting point, and then proceed to proclaim a 'universal' message.

However, while Christianity and Islam each seek to convert the whole of humanity to their faith, Judaism does not. Uniquely among monotheistic religions, Judaism (does not proselytize), and recognises that each religious tradition has its own valid spiritual insights.

Historically, the concept that any religion is in possession of a universal truth has presented a formidable obstacle to open and friendly discussion of theological issues between the different religious communities.

… As far as the Jewish community is concerned, relations with other religious groups should be based on mutual respect, a genuine shared learning experience, and the understanding which comes from personal co-operation on issues of common concern”.

                                                                                            (Ref. Israel & Judaism Studies http://www.ijs.org.au/Interfaith-Activities/default.aspx)

 


The Challenge of the Moderates to both Christianity and Islam:

 

 

Listen to Mother: The tradition of Abraham!


 

“Stop playing that silly
‘My God is better than Your God’ game
and pull your hot heads in,
both of you!”


 

Both Christianity and Islam need to rethink their commonly held need to
convert others into the image of themselves. 


The peace of our world depends on it!

The truth of the Divine will be found in it!

 

There is room for us all

 

                                                    
 

 

Using the imagery of the movie
AVATAR,

we must allow the other to move -

‘from the place where the eye doesn’t see’


 

I see You!                       
            I see You!

 

We can choose to do it!

 

 

We can allow The Spirit of Giving Respect – Expecting Respect

 To triumph over Dogma and Division
