Prophetic Monotheism 1

By Br. John Martin Sahajananda

According to traditional Judaism, God is the creator and human beings are creatures of God. God creates creation and human beings out of nothing. There’s a gulf between God and his creation — an essential difference between God and humankind, and, coincidentally, between all of God’s creatures, human or otherwise.

According to this tradition, no one can see God face to face. God is the liberator and saviour. He guides his people through the prophets. He reveals his will through the commandments.

The Torah reveals the will of God and people have to follow it. To obey The Torah is to obey God. One has to submit one’s will and intellect to the will of God and one has to be faithful and loyal to God. Jews consider themselves to be specially chosen by God. So according to Judaism, they’re expected to live a moral life according to the will of God.

According to traditional Christianity, God is the creator and human beings are creatures of God. There’s an essential difference between God and humankind. God revealed his will through the prophets in the Old Testament and he revealed his final will in the person of Jesus Christ. Most Christian churches believe and teach that the Bible, and especially the New Testament, is the inspired word of God and that to be guided by the Bible is to be guided by God.

Jesus is the only son of God. He’s the incarnation of the third person of the Holy Trinity. He is the only way, the truth the life. One has to believe in Jesus as the only son of God and become a Christian to be saved. Some Christians insist only on believing in Jesus as the saviour to be saved while others insist, not only on believing in Jesus, but on living a moral life and doing good works. If one lives a good life, they believe, one will go to heaven and if one lives a bad life, one will go to hell after death.
