Concerning the goal of life, the Christianity religion 's goal is salvation that involves working for peace and just in the world. They have the responsibility to emulate what Christ did through the social practices and religious practices that demonstrate Jesus will. The Islam religions on the other hand have their different goals. Their goal is that humans must submit to the will of God. They believe that in order for an individual to gain paradise after death, he or she should submit to the will of God.
Not only does Judaism had similarities between the two religions, the other two religions - Christianity and Islam were strongly influenced by Judaism. Christianity has the largest world’s cultural, religious and political development. As same as Judaism and Islam, Christianity is also monotheistic. People who follow the religion Christianity are known as Christians. Christians follow the teachings of a man named Jesus, who was born in Palestine in about A.D. 30.

However, there seems to be tension between Paul’s conclusion regarding the way of justification and the conclusion in James 2:14-26. Paul’s thesis in this section of the Bible is that God’s righteousness that is distanced from law is currently available to all believers in Jesus Christ (Romans 3:21-22). This salvation that is provided in Christ through faith is also deeply individualistic since every individual must accept the gift personally i.e. for himself or herself . Since this righteousness or salvation offered apart from law, it is received through faith rather than obedience to the law.
God has ordained that Revelation is transmitted to all people, to all generations, and to remain intact forever. This mandate is performed by the Church through evangelization. However, the desire to proclaim Jesus Christ, to “evangelize” and to lead others to the “fiat” of faith in Jesus Christ, which at the same time arouses the need to know this faith better, does not come from human inspiration. It springs from the loving knowledge that Jesus Christ has of us. In this way, we need to understand that the primary and essential object of catechesis and religious education is the mystery of Christ.

While exploring both of these religions, we realize that although they have their differences they still have the same concept and ideas. Jesus was known as the anointed one, the messiah “christ’. The buddha similarly was known as the Awakened one “enlightened”.
However from this you see that revelation is all united in harmony. The Dei Verbum reveals that revelation as the self-disclosure of the trinity. The Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit show that there is faith and love. Faith and love is important in revelation. God was prominent from the divine mystery, spoke with human beings, and made them commit their lives with obedience to the life of faith.
As Christians, we should be adherents of Christ, our Lord and Savior. Moreover, we are to carry out and preach The Great Commission to all humanity, whereby we are governed. Likewise, as verbalized in I Peter 2:9, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;” (King James Version), we should live a conscientious life that is pleasing to God. Nevertheless, in order to have Holiness, we must be compliant to God’s commandments and attend to our conscience. However, our conscience begins with the heart and it is the heart which fuels our conscious to compel us to live our lives Holy and acceptable to God (Romans 12:1) Holiness Defined Moreover, the Bible tells us in I Thessalonians 4:7, “For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness” (King James Version).
Jesus was viewed as a historical figure that we can learn from spiritually and the Bible is used as a source of knowledge on Christian history (Bingham 152, 153). In this theological movement being a Christian is considered “nothing but feeling and experience” (Lane 238). Following is the Evangelical theology which evolved from the Pietism and Revivalist movement (Olson 33). Charles Finney, a leader in Evangelism, emphasized the need and ability to evangelize the world while also maintaining the power of free will” thereby influencing all but not trying to control the mind of the masses (Lane 253, 254). As well as being a supreme authority Evangelist’s believe that because the Bible was written by man through God’s instruction the Bible is both fully man’s and God’s (256).
It becomes important to uphold and defend the Bible’s authority and the power does not come from any simple measure employed by us individually. It is up to the congregation to openly confess the analytical propositions without fear and become actively engaged in the faith and obedience of which it asks (p. 56).

Transparency exists personally as a Christian when witnessing and teaching through the authority of Holy Scripture. This becomes solely dependent on the relationship that exists with the congregation and the Bible being the solitary authority.
