Just because it’s named differently in a religion somehow makes it different? It doesn’t, it’s truly the same and either way as long as you are a good follower and person, and you keep your faith in god and humanity, then either religions outlooks on being a good follower are one in one with each other and can be looked at with much similarity and that each religions paths to being a good follower are paved with the exact same
