The Australian National Dialogue of Christians, Muslims & Jews

ANDCJthumbx150Australia Day Vision 2019 

Media Statement released 18 January 

As the 231st anniversary of the colonial establishment of NSW approaches, representatives from three Australian faith groups in the Australian National Dialogue of Christians, Moslems and Jews (ANDCMJ) bring their contribution to the discussion on the 26 January.

The dynamic of the golden rule is beautifully expressed in the holy texts of our three Abrahamic faiths (Christianity, Islam and Judaism). In Matthew 7:12 we read: “Therefore whatever you desire for others to do for you, you shall also do to them; for this is the law of the prophets”. In an early surah of the Qur'an, God asks Prophet Muhammad to remember the sorrows of his childhood and make sure no one else in his community would endure this deprivation. (Qur'an Surah 93). The Torah teaches “Love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord” (Leviticus 19:18)
