Interfaith faux pas
My daughter today was telling me about a conversation she was having at school where one of her friends asked what the difference between Islam and Christianity was. One of the other students said it was that Muslims didn't believe Jesus died on the cross, to which my daughter said, "Yes, but the biggest difference is we don't believe in the Trinity." Thus ensued a discussion about theology and religion. My daughter told me she was being very careful, because she didn't want to offend someone, so when they asked her what Muslims thought of the Bible, she just said we get our guidance from the Qur'an instead. But when they asked, "Do Muslims think we are all going to Hell?" her tact got her in trouble. "I can't guarantee that," she replied quickly.
Fortunately every one burst out laughing, and she got a chance to explain that what she meant was that according to the Qur'an no one is guaranteed a place in Heaven, nor in Hell. Christians, Jews, people who believe and do good works all have hope for Divine approbation.
