The document, called When Two Faiths Meet, is the product of months of painstaking negotiations between Christian and Muslim leaders and emphasises the need for tolerance and acceptance of mixed-faith marriages.Among the recommendations are speaking out against forced conversions, recognising the legality of inter-faith marriages in British law, non-judgemental pastoral care and a complete rejection of any violence."It might sound a little like we are stating the obvious but it does need to be said," Sheikh Ibrahim told The Independent.So you see a Christian will always try her hardest to obey God, even though she sometimes may fail, she will not willfully want to disobey God.If she deliberately ignores God’s commands, she will not enter the kingdom of heaven even if on the surface she says she is a Christian. Although the Muslim and Christian faiths share a lot of their scriptures in common, their neliefs are fundamentally different at points where it counts.
The Bible makes it clear that if a woman has the freedom to choose her own husband, (which in those times only happens in the rare circumstances that the woman becomes widowed - otherwise marriages were always arranged), they must marry a Christian.
However, increasing numbers of Catholics are marrying Jews, Muslims and adherents of other religions (the canonical term here is “disparity of cult,” but “interfaith” or “interreligious” marriage are more user-friendly terms).
Catholic-Jewish couples, because of their greater number and longer history in American society, have a growing list of resources, including books, Web sites and support groups like the national Dovetail Institute and the Chicago-based Jewish Catholic Couples Group.
While a Muslim belives Jesus to be a prophet, they do not believe that he is God nor that he rose from the dead.
This is why the Muslim belief and the Christian belief can never be compatible, because they believe the opposite things about the most crucial person in the Christian religion, Jesus.
