we are seeing a lot of that in almost every religion today.* Absolute Truth Claims
* Blind Obedience
* Establishing the "Ideal" Time
* The End Justifies Any Means
* Declaring Holy War
"Kimball rightly observes that truth claims are foundational for religion. But, he claims that believers err when they hold their religious beliefs in a “rigid” or “absolute” manner. So, when some Christians criticize the Islamic view of God (Allah) as deficient, they reveal their ignorance and bigotry. Kimball asserts that, “there is simply no ambiguity here. Jews, Christians, and Muslims are talking about the same deity” (p. 50). This is because the Qur’an claims that Allah inspired the Hebrew prophets and Jesus. Moreover, the Arabic word “Allah” means “God.” "
wont say its a reliable source, but if that is the stand... it will certainly only work for the religions of the books. other religions wont seem to fit in i guess...
will try to find the book and read it and i reserve my comments till i done so
