<p lang="zxx"><strong>One concern</strong> of the project lies in the religious domain. Jews, Christians and Muslims profess themselves to God's revelation to the prophet Abraham as the root of their faiths. But besides that they are sharing the commonalities of "<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abrahamic_religions" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Abrahemic religions</a>", there are non-negligible differences in theology and religious traditions. Not to mention that religious issues are claimed as a reasons for - also violant - clashes.</p> <p lang="zxx"><strong>One concern</strong> of the project lies in the religious domain.

<p lang="zxx"><strong>The other concern</strong> is a matter of urban development.

Thought the other way around, by logic it were also true that there hardly can exist another, comparable religious building at another location in the world. But apparently this will depend on which comparison criteria are used:  Thought the other way around, by logic it were also true that there hardly can exist another, comparable religious building at another location in the world. But apparently this will depend on which comparison criteria are used, since the media refer to multifaith projects which they consider to be similar:
<ul> <ul>
<li>There are least ten cities "with a rich mix of holy sites and places of worship of different faiths, all concentrated in less than one square kilometer".  "Such close proximity shows that communication between different religions is not only possible, but is practiced ..." Berlin tops the list. Working on "a single holy site for three religions", it is considered unique and "gets the gold medal for its inter-religious dialogue."

  <h3>What's close to the heart: a look at the Charter</h3>
  The juxtaposition of commonalities and differences of the religions seems to be particularly close to the heart of the religious representatives who had jointly developed the <a href="https://house-of-one.org/sites/default/files/house_of_one_berlin_charta_engl.pdf" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Charter</a>. Therewith they obeyed the "the three religions’ respective self-conceptions". How to deal with this tension is expressed by a quotation of Leo Baeck: “People and nations and creeds will remain separate. They will live on as different entities. But they will know that they belong together, that they are all part of one humanity, that they should live together on this earth, recognizing and understanding one another, and, when there is need, helping one another.”
  The Charter then concentrates on "fundamental intentions to act," which were derived from core values which the three religions have in common and which is being inspired by the "Irrevocable directives" of the initial declaration of a "<a href="https://parliamentofreligions.org/sites/default/files/Global%20Ethic%20booklet-update-web_0.pdf">Global Ethic</a>" by the Parliament of the World's Religions, 1993.
<h3>Close to the heart</h3> <h3>The background: Comparative Theology</h3>
The juxtaposition of commonalities and differences of the religions seems to be particularly close to the heart of the religious representatives who jointly developed the <a href="https://house-of-one.org/sites/default/files/house_of_one_berlin_charta_engl.pdf" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">concept</a>. Therewith it follows the "the three religions’ respective self-conceptions". How to deal with the tension is expressed by a quotation of Leo Baeck: “People and nations and creeds will remain separate. They will live on as different entities. But they will know that they belong together, that they are all part of one humanity, that they should live together on this earth, recognizing and understanding one another, and, when there is need, helping one another.”   
  The theoretical background can be found in the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparative_theology" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Comparative Theology</a>, as the "<a href="https://www.theologiestudierende.de/2016/08/17/das-house-of-one-in-berlin/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Interim report</a>" explained: the Comparative Theology does not question whether the faiths of another religion are true. Its' emphasis lies in getting to know the religion of others. "The advantage of this approach is on <a href="https://www.theologiestudierende.de/2016/08/17/das-house-of-one-in-berlin/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Interim report</a>the one hand that the encounter with people of other faiths promotes one's own identity of faith." On the other hand, the question of truth can be kept open, well knowing that only God knows the answer.
