View Full Version : The different between Samaritanism and Islam

I was wanting to discuss what differences are there between Samaritanism and Islam? The reason I ask would be because of the thread 'The God of ....' Here (http://www.biblewheel.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1612)

Knowing very little about both Samaritanism and Islam. I was hoping to gain some insight into any differences of opinions where one of theses groups worshipped the one true God. I know that the Samaritan's thought that on mount Gerizim was the orginal place of worship and by calling them Shamerim שַמֶרִים, "Keepers [of the Law].

I would also note that in John 4:21-23 Jesus speaks to a Samaritan woman and told her that she didn't know what she worshipped.

So how is this any different than Islam are any other religion?
