237.15 Judaism, Christianity, and Islam Must Consider Panentheism
The Old Testament teaches deism, which says that God created a universe that has an 'end'. Since the universe has an end, the universe must be logical and must have had a 'beginning.' The Qur'an also teaches deism. Thus, the Qur'an was made by Muhammad's brother with the help of Jews. So the Old Testament and the Qur'an are taught in many similar ways. Since the New Testament teaches theism, the teachings of Christianity became very different than Judaism and Islam.
However, Muhammad had been a follower of Nestorius. Since Nestorius was a Christian, Muhammad was a follower of Jesus. But little is known about Jesus until he became home from Greece. At Greece, Jesus became a follower of the panentheism of Anaxagoras and Plato. So, Jesus rejected the deism of the Old Testament and taught panentheism until he was hung on the Cross. In the first century, Christianity began with the New Testament. But in the second century, Irenaeus developed theism by rejecting the panentheistic teachings of Jesus.
I conclude that only the New Testament can recover panentheism with ease. But Christians must also conduct new research on the teachings of Jesus. This research will be difficult because the disciples of Jesus were only students. His disciples could only be students because Jesus seems to have been in Greece for 18 years with the Neoplatonists.
Since a panentheistic God is perfect, God creates the best of all universes rather than a perfect universe. Thus panentheistic universe has no end and had no beginning. So, Judaism and Islam must reject deism and Christianity must reject theism. Today's Christian teachings must also change. Otherwise, wars will continue to grow.
