As a Christian I believe in the same God that Jews and Muslims believe in. I don't feel threatened by the differences but am heartened by our shared beginnings. We're like a family comprised of a combination of adopted children, of step-children, and of biological children all brought together at a family reunion.
My God is an inclusive God who loves us all and wants the best for us. If we love God with all our means to do so, then we'll respect ourselves and be able to respect and love others like-wise.

It's nice to see young people from different backgrounds discuss issues together in conversation. However, they should not be encouraged to worship in other religions as this video shows. To me that is crossing the line. We should not have interfaith relationships to the point that we worship together because religions do not worship the same way or believe the same things.
