Temple Mount, Jerusalem - Muslims on top and Jews at the western wall of the platform upon which the Temples stood.

While we have noted that God wants to have a relationship with men and women, mankind has tended to turn that into religion - or religions. Mankind has developed Gods created in man's image and imagination. Some religions have nothing to do with the one true God who created the universe. Other religions are systems developed from the faith that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob revealed, into systems and hierarchies that get in the way of the kind of relationship God wants with men and women.

 

Theology

From the Greek words for words and God, Theology is how we think and talk about God. So every person is a theologian and has a theology.. However, the theology that many hold is not as God intended. Theology does not have to be complicated, but it needs to be formed with the help of God's Holy Spirit opening his scriptures to our understanding.

Different Religions

Briefly, there are several religions that may be called polytheistic - believe in many or varied gods and spirits that have to be appeased to ensure success and even survival.

Judaism and Christianity

God called a man out of polytheism and through him, established the religion of the Jews, known as Judaism. Judaism developed and diversified and, at the right time produced the promised Messiah (anointed one) The coming of the Jewish Messiah (Christ in Greek) started off Christianity, that has become predominantly Gentile - and at various times in history, Jewish followers of the Jewish Messiah, mostly known today as Messianic Jews. The Jews and their rabbis who did not accept Yeshua from Nazareth as the expected Messiah restructured Judaism to cope with the new situation of exile and the lack of a Temple and sacrifices. Modern Judaism is not the same as Judaism in the time of Jesus.

Islam - Mohammed

Islam claims to be the third monotheistic religion and claims to have superseded all religions that went before. Islam claims prophets from the Hebrew scriptures as Muslims and also Jesus (who it credits as being the Messiah) Early writings in Islam's scriptures are friendly and respectful to Jews and Christians, but these were abrogated by later writings and traditions from Mohammed. Islam maintains that Christians and Jews corrupted their scriptures but that Mohammed received a corrected version. Islam is currently in head-on conflict with all other religions and Israel is on the front line, as Islam claims it to be Islamic territory for ever, having once been conquered (by the sword)

Christian opposition to Israel

While Christian support of Paul's view of being grafted into God's olive tree that was once entirely Jewish / Israel is generally known as Christian Zionism, there is a majority position within the church that is known as Replacement Theology. Replacement theology holds that God rejected Israel when the leaders rejected Jesus, and that all the Bible's promises now belong to the (predominantly Gentile) Church. The most extreme manifestation of this view is known as Christian Palesinianism - almost a mirror image of Christian Zionism.
