Question for believers


Do Christians, Muslims and those in Judaism believe in the same god?

Is it the wish of the same god that there exists different competing sects, each with absolute truth on its side?

If the gods are different, are they all omnibenevolent?

Many an African theologians have argued that the gods of African religion were also omnibenevolent, is it the case then that we have many omni gods?

And my favorite subject, is there a resolution of the problem of evil or does the Epicurean problem remain as unsolved problem for theism?

    The problem of evil..this is what turns a lot of people away from religion especially those who believe god loves them They eventually, if they can summon up the ability to critically think, will see that this is an absurd contradiction.

    The problem of evil is still a problem. Something they forgot to address when they concocted the one-god scheme. I guess since god is everything he is also contradiction.

    Just did a little quick research to show more of the “problem of evil” and just how much god loves the children….

    3.1 million children starve to death worldwide every year…”World Hunger Facts.” source

    36 million starve yearly if you add in adults…
    “The World Counts”..source

    80,000 children worldwide die from cancer..ACCO. .org…source

    9.6 million total if you add in adults, die from cancer worldwide…Cancer Research UK…source

    95,000 Children murdered worldwide..UNICEF..source

    50,000 women murdered by intimate partner or family member a year in worldwide..NPR…source

    137 women a day murdered worldwide..UNODC..source..

    10,000 children worldwide die each year in armed conflicts..UN ..source

    Could not get a total figure on children molested by priests and other religious leaders worldwide, but 5,100 names of priests released from just US dioceses alone in one year…

    And on it goes, but god loves you and your children and he will help you find your car keys, make your favorite football team win and save your home in a tornado, but not your neighbor’s, if you just pray hard enough.

    Muslims and jews do. Some Christians do and some don’t.
    And a lot of people believe in words without knowing what they’re believing. The same god is the same as the source, energy, consciousness.

      Oh, re bad. Some is answered in the bad is there for our growth, the bad is there for us to change, it seems bad but isn’t, there is free will so a person can choose bad, and sometimes there are no answers just questions.

      I am lost, Eliza. Are you saying god is energy, light, consciousness and it is the same god for every believer?

        Yes and no. I’m saying that’s the god I believe in, that’s the god Judaism and Islam believe in (not talking about how people change religion to be rules and something it’s not meant to be), it’s the same view as a lot of eastern philosophies. I don’t know about christianity. I feel like Christian’s believe in christ that jesus died for their sins and if you believe that you are saved from hell, if you don’t you aren’t. Some Christians look beyond that and some don’t. Or that’s the few I’ve met.
