Unity Against Satan (i.e.Materialism)

Dear Christians,

I have recently asked: If we step back and look at the Big Picture, doesn't the Qur'an unite the Jews, Christians, and Muslims by teaching that Jesus was saved from the cross, therefore giving the Jews no reason to discredit Jesus.

I have been told by a very nice Christian:

{Is unity our main desire? Is it the defining factor in truth? I see truth as a necessary object of faith, so that my faith is not in vain. You can also apply this to what you see as unity between Jews, Christians and Muslims. I believe Christianity holds the truth and it would not matter to me if I were not in any kind of unity with anybody, so long as I am in one accord with my Lord.}

The first thing that came to mind when I read this is that We are all Created by Allah, therefore we are all brothers and sisters, and that unity should be a number one priority against Satan.

I was surprised when I was told that this person did not value unity with other fellow humans, only in the belief that Jesus was killed for sins.

I then searched the Bible and this is what I found;

Jesus says= "I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. John 17:23

"Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:3

"Also in Judah the hand of God was on the people to give them unity of mind to carry out what the king and his officials had ordered, following the word of the LORD. 2 Chronicles 30:12

"How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity! Psalms 133:1

"May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, Romans 15:5

"And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Colossians 3:14

The Message was clear that the Creator desired Unity, not through blood but through love, faith, following the teachings of Jesus, who was sent by God.

If we believe Paul in that Jesus died on the cross for our sins, then the Jews would not accept Jesus, Paul also called the Law of Moses a curse, taking away from more unity with the Jews.

As the Jews and Christians are divided over Jesus, and not in Unity, not in accordance with the teachings of the Bible (Unity), The Qur'an is sent to clarify and Unite.

The Beautiful thing is that We have History on our side in that We can look back and see the effects as Proof.

If we Look Back at the Middle East for example (which counts for only 27% of the Muslims World Wide) When the Qur'an was first sent over 1,400 years ago, there were mostly Pagans, then a equal division of Jews and Christians.

The Qur'an then United the Middle East, all except maybe 20%. The Middle Easterners like Jesus and Abraham, have a better understanding of the previous and present revelations and 80% of them Are now Muslim.

History also proves to us the Power of Unity within the Qur'an in regards to states.

Under the result of the Bible, the State "divided" into secular and religious, while Under the result of the Qur'an, the state is united. About 45 countries are mostly governed by the teachings of the Qur'an, while none by the Bible.

We worship the same Creator, therefore let us not let misconceptions stand in our way to understand the Message of Love and Unity. Let us learn from our History. Materialism is sweeping away piety, charity for the needy, and breaking bonds between loved ones. Allah wants us to unite.

"And lo! this your religion is one religion and I am your Lord, so keep your duty unto Me. 

But they cut off their religion among themselves into sects, each part rejoicing in that which is with them. 

But leave them in their confused ignorance for a time. Do they think that because We have granted them abundance of wealth and sons, We would hasten them on in every good? Nay, they do not understand. 

Verily those who live in awe for fear of their Lord; Those who believe in the Signs of their Lord; Those who join not (in worship) partners with their Lord; And those who dispense their charity with their hearts full of fear, because they will return to their Lord;- 

It is these who hasten in every good work, and these who are foremost in (attaining) them. Qur'an 23:52-61 

And they have broken their religion (into fragments) among them, (yet) all are returning unto Us. Qur'an 21:93
