I know I can google it-but I find answers from those with personal experience to be more accurate ;)
In a nutshell-who is Oden- is He similar to the God of Abraham?
Is it possible we all believe in the same God but in a different context?
I am not talking about practice- I am asking about the "being" or "force"

If you want to look at what unites start with the people and how to communicate with them. You are actually doing really good just by listening and not following up with the classic 'my god is better than yours you are all uneducated children that just do not understand christianity.' People that follow Odin are still people still mothers, still doing what they think is best for their family. That is what everyone does.
Insulting (not that you op are doing that here) by saying things like if you are not christians you are defiant children that do not know better is insulting and belittling. It is just as bad to say those things as it would be for me to say your god is an imaginary friend. I just wish more people would recognize that. To many get really upset when a non christians says those things, but will say the first part about all non christians and not recognize that they are doing the exact same thing.

Seems so many paths lead to the same type of conclusion or outcome-where is the continuity in them-?
That's where it gets interesting. There are superficial similarities, but the very heart of the belief structure is completely removed from most other religions. Our values, our concept of honor, we do not have a golden rule. Often, when people "borrow" from Heathenry, they have to do a lot of rewriting and overlooking to make it fit into what they actually believe. This isn't actually about the difference between the two religions, but it does a good job of explaining the difference in belief structures.
