The Elephant And The Blind MenPerhaps this amusing, informative story will help increase understanding between religions.
A group of blind men stumbled across [sorry] an elephant, new to them and an unknown. One grabbed its tail. declarig this animal can be used as a broom. Another hugged one of the legs and said no, this is like a tree. A third, grasping a tusk said it's not alive just a piece of smooth stone. The one swinging on the nose said it was like a giant powerful snake with breath. The fifth, holding onto an ear declared it is like a winnowing basket. They all called each other stupid and wrong, since each was convinced they "knew" what they "knew".
Religions all have a partial understanding of the Great Creator, but how arrogant are people to believe theirs is a complete and correct answer?
