|The teaching*(1) that "The religion of the Jewish People is
a parent religion of both Christianity and Mohammedanism" IS FALSE.
What Judaism, Christianity, and Islam have in common is their
"understanding" (references to Abraham, Moses, Joseph, David, and Jesus) of
what constitutes scripture (The Divine will of God).
"Jesus was Jewish. His disciples were Jewish. In the
prevailing Christian view, the Bible was written by forty authors. Of these,
thirty-nine were Jewish. The fortieth, Luke, was likely a convert to
Judaism. None of the earliest Christians believed that they were starting a
new religion. They merely sought to spread the news that Jewish prophecy had
been fulfilled by the arrival of the Jewish Messiah. STANDING

On the other hand, from Islam's Quran, on the issue of Jews and
Christians, it is written, "Do not take Jews and Christians for friends..."
-Koran 5.51. The Koran, (revelations of Muhammad 610-632
AD) refers to Christ Jesus only as a
prophet intending to nullify His Lordship, and, thus, creating a new (false)
religion apart from the historical foundations of Judaism. The work of
Judaism/Christianity was finished on the Cross of Calvary where Jesus gasped
his last breath saying, "It is
finished" John 19:30; thus, fulfilling prophecy. Good News: Jesus did return to life three days later!
P.s. Muhammad, the founder of Islam was a brutal murderer of people, unlike Jesus who loved all, and killed none!

Reconciliation is the ONLY Godly and loving response.
A marriage license is secular/worldly and not in accordance with God's Word. It is a contract giving jurisdiction to "State" authorities (secular/irreligious men) over your marriage who must likely have no respect as to its sacredness. IF a couple falls "out of love", then it was never (God's) true love in the first place. Perhaps it was only carnal lust of the flesh?
A Godly marriage is entering into a covenant which can be represented by an optional certificate. This is a spiritual bonding between God, man & woman.
|A clarification of the word ecumenical so as to avoid error: It is a coming together of Christian Unity worldwide. Ecumenism is NOT a merging of other religions thereby forming a sort of conglomerate church. The Church/ Bride of Christ cannot be unequally yoked with unbelievers (2 Corinthians 6:14).|
