We are all children of God. We all lived with Him before this life. We all felt the joy and happiness of living with Him. When we came to this life, God gave us amnesia so we could learn. The prophet Alma stated:
"And now behold, if it were possible that our first parents could have gone forth and partaken of the tree of life they would have been forever miserable, having no preparatory state; and thus the plan of redemption would have been frustrated, and the word of God would have been void, taking none effect.
But behold, it was not so; but it was appointed unto men that they must die; and after death, they must come to judgment, even that same judgment of which we have spoken, which is the end.
And after God had appointed that these things should come unto man, behold, then he saw that it was expedient that man should know concerning the things whereof he had appointed unto them;
Therefore he sent angels to converse with them, who caused men to behold of his glory.
And they began from that time forth to call on his name; therefore God conversed with men, and made known unto them the plan of redemption, which had been prepared from the foundation of the world; and this he made known unto them according to their faith and repentance and their holy works.
Wherefore, he gave commandments unto men, they having first transgressed the first commandments as to things which were temporal, and becoming as gods, knowing good from evil, placing themselves in a state to act, or being placed in a state to act according to their wills and pleasures, whether to do evil or to do good—" Alma 12: 26 - 31
So here, it states that the knowledge of God and his will and His laws came about through man's faith, repentance and their holy works. So one person may receive more instruction than another because of their faith, repentance and holy works.
From this, it can be gathered that individuals and religions and religious leaders received inspiration up to the extent of their faith. As a result, we have many different religions. This does not mean that all religions are wrong. If they teach principles as to what God teaches then they are right as to those taught principles.
There may be some religions that are more dialed-in as far as doctrine and truth than others but the people practicing those doctrines may not be the most righteous people.
The children of Israel were given a lot of light and truth but they decided to reject it and go to other religions that had a lesser-portion of light and truth and because of that, God took away the light and truth from them for not exercising what they were given.
The more one exercises their faith and repentance the more light and truth is given. The more a nation exercises this, the more they become closer to the wholeness of truth and the more the doctrine and knowledge becomes uniform.
The prophet Enoch exercised so much faith and repentance that he was able to knock down essentially all truth from heaven to earth and had the faith to teach those around him and convert them to the truth to the point where the people were of one heart and of one mind and there was no poor among them.
That is the ultimate religion in essence which all prophets have strived for. A lot of it has to do with the faith of one person such as Enoch, but it also has a lot to do with the faith of the listener.
The truth can be taught to me all day long, but I can reject it because of my lack of faith and repentance, my pride, my bias, my hypocrisy, my focus on the world, ect.
Jesus Christ himself was among individuals who were too focused on the length of the borders of their garments what should and should not be done on the Sabbath, their religious prominence within the community that they rejected the Son of God and his teachings and instead clung to the teachings of their fathers which had been diluted through focusing so much on the letter of the law instead of the spirit of the law.
So if all religions are wrong right now in this day, it is because there is no one exercising faith and repentance. I do not believe this is the case, the fact that this forum exists is the existence of faith. If more and more people exercise faith and repentance more and more religions will become more right. More and more people will start clinging to the truth.
Some people might be disenchanted with religion because they see the hypocrisy and the lack of faith and repentance. We all have to start somewhere though.
I think it is important to keep one's heart open to the possibility that there may be another religion that may have more light and truth from someone's exercising their faith and repentance and to keep one's mind open to other people's thoughts on God.
I especially think it is important to openly talk about God with other people with the mindset to figure out the eternities and not the mindset to win a game of "chess" with someone else and their beliefs. We can build off each other and ultimately find the truth if all are exercising faith and repentance.
The fact that it is now taboo to talk about God in government, school and workplace settings is frightening. The lack of faith and repentance is showing its mark. The ultimate anti-religion is no religion.
God lives. He is there. I know that. Nothing can dissuade me from what I know through my exercise of faith and repentance. I can feel Him when I pray and I can feel Him when I study His word. The times when I have felt His presence extend past just a mere coincidence.
There have been times when I felt like I was in despair that life was too hard and I just wanted to let everything in front of me pass. EVERYTIME when I was at my ultimate lows and just wanted to give up on what lay ahead a surge would come into me of peace. He would let me know that He was still there and assure me with his spirit.
Instead of knocking all religions, it is best to find commonality and be grateful that both are striving toward the search to God, whether it be Muslim, Jew or Christian and maybe someday we can understand the eternal laws of God and follow them and obey them and be of one heart and one mind with no poor among us.
