    Explanation
    Monotheism is defined as the belief in the existence of only one god. This means that monotheistic religions, such as Christianity, Islam, and Judaism, believe in the existence of a single, supreme deity. This belief sets monotheism apart from polytheism, which is the belief in multiple gods, and atheism, which is the belief in the inexistence of any god. Monotheism emphasizes the unity and singularity of the divine, and it is a central tenet in many religious traditions around the world.

    Why doesn't Islam recognise modern-day Christianity as monotheistic?

    • A.

      They never understood what Christianity is

    • B.

      Due to their differences with Christianity

    • C.

      Due to Christian doctrine of Trinity

    • D.

      They believe Christianity is not a true religion

    Correct Answer
    C. Due to Christian doctrine of Trinity
    Explanation
    Islam does not recognize modern-day Christianity as monotheistic because of the Christian doctrine of Trinity. Islam strictly adheres to the belief in the oneness of God, known as Tawhid, and views the concept of the Trinity as a violation of this principle. According to Islamic teachings, the belief in Jesus as the son of God and part of a divine Trinity contradicts the fundamental Islamic understanding of monotheism. Therefore, Islam does not consider Christianity to be a true monotheistic religion.

    Correct Answer
    C. Judaism
    Explanation
    Judaism believes that Christianity is not monotheistic. This is because Judaism strictly adheres to the belief in one God, without accepting the concept of the Holy Trinity in Christianity. According to Judaism, the worship of Jesus as divine contradicts the principle of monotheism, making Christianity a non-monotheistic religion.

    Explanation
    The assertion of Christians over monotheism is that it is central to the Christian faith. Monotheism refers to the belief in the existence of only one God, and this belief is fundamental to Christianity. Christians believe in the Trinity, which means that they believe in one God who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit. This concept of monotheism is at the core of Christian theology and shapes their understanding of God's nature and relationship with humanity.

    Mormonism argues that the Godhead is in three separate individuals. This belief is based on the doctrine of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which teaches that God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost are distinct beings with separate roles within the Godhead. This is in contrast to the traditional Christian belief in the Trinity, which states that God is one being in three persons. Mormonism's belief in the separate individuality of the Godhead is a fundamental aspect of their faith.
