Comparison of religious beliefs with Monotheistic religions

type of theism
strict monotheism
strict monotheism
Trinitarian monotheism
Homotheistic God — not just one God or monotheism, but very unambiguously the same God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the one who has glorified his servant Jesus (Acts 3:13-14). Messianic and Trinitarian God, since the relationship between God and Messiah does not exclude other superior beings, or Holy Spirits, nor does that Trinity exclude multicellular external or microbial internal nature (pluralistic view, not just dualist or classical theist view of religion).

Merodepantheistic God — a neologism meaning
"part-of-all God doctrine".

Allah (Arabic for God)

angels and demons

divine revelation
through Muhammad, recorded
in Qur'an
through Prophets, recorded in Bible
through Prophets and Jesus (as God Himself), recorded in Bible
through many, not necessarily Christian, prophets
view of sacred text
inspired, literal word of God, inerrant in original languages
views vary
inspired, some believe inerrant in original languages
Thought to be good for instruction, but not necessarily inspired and inerrant. There is no excessive dependence on scripture as a source of religious authority, since Cesidians have at least seven sources of authority: sacred texts, tradition, reason (and science), prophets, personal experience, orthodox syncretism, and mathematics. There is no dependence on the Bible as the only sacred text either.
human nature
equal ability to do good or evil
two equal impulses, one good and one bad
"original sin" inherited from Adam — tendency towards evil
the original sinners were not Adam and Eve, but their children
means of salvation
correct belief, good deeds,
Five Pillars
belief in God, good deeds
correct belief, faith, good deeds, sacraments (some Protestants emphasize faith alone)
Salvation is a right (rite); salvation more dependent on attitude than on correct belief or good deeds (situation); salvation is more about how you think and feel, than what you think and feel.
God's role in salvation
divine revelation and forgiveness
predestination, various forms of grace
salvation comes through Yeshua and Yeshua alone
good afterlife
eternal paradise
views vary: either heaven or no afterlife
eternal heaven
reincarnation as a means of spiritual evolution
bad afterlife
eternal hell
views vary: either eternal Gehenna, reincarnation, or no afterlife
eternal hell, temporary purgatory (Catholicism)
Judgment Day is part of the spiritual evolution process
view of fellow Abrahamic religions
Jews and Christians are respected as "People of the Book," but they have wrong beliefs and only partial revelation.
Islam and Christianity are false interpretations and extensions of Judaism.
Judaism is a true religion, but with incomplete revelation. Islam is a false religion.
Abrahamic religions are more than Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. Not only are people of non-Abrahamic religions such as Sabians/Mandaeans included in the list of those who shall experience salvation (Sura 2:62), but Abrahamic religions of recent founding also exist such as the Bahá'í Faith (which is not mentioned in Sura 2:62). Moreover, you cannot be a follower of an Abrahamic religion if you also wish to destroy the genetic (Jewish) or spiritual (Christian) children of Abraham.
