Honestly, did you really have to invoke that corny wrestling line into this?

In your logic, I agree (save the parts about God "dying") but there is a fundemental question to ask next:

Since you obviously believe the God of the Bible (YHWH) and the God of the Qur'an (Allah) are not the same because (in your view) the God of the Bible died on a cross and is a Trinity (3 persons in 1 God) and not One Entity as God, does that also mean you believe the God of Judaism is also not the same God as the one you believe in?

The reason I ask is because Christianity is based in Judaism, and Jews do not believe in a triune God or that God died on a cross. I don't think anyone in the Old Testament saw God as triune either, so are you saying the entire Hebrew tradition which became the roots of Judaism is also false?

And please don't respond with "progressive revelation" because although that might apply to the people in the Bible, it does not to modern Jews.
