Rabbi, while you have good points to ponder some of your foundations and assumptions are incorrect and as a result, your conclusions are wrong. Just one example, in Redemption, you claim that "Christians emphasize salvation, or the need for man to become spiritual--to refine his character and earn a place in heaven." False. Christians do "emphasize" salvation, but there is nothing man can do to become "spiritual" or to "earn a place in heaven." Instead, only through acceptance of Jesus as Messiah and redeemer, and as the fulfillment of Torah, can we enter into heaven. In other words, there are no earthly works we can do to earn our place. Our place in heaven is granted by the grace of G-d. It is G-d's love of us that get's us into heaven, not the other way around.
