@letthebibleanswerit,
Is there any religion that is the one true religion known by man?
I'm not sure there is being that it is almost always somewhat misunderstood by man, and would be even if the one true religion was given to him.

@Enaj,
Yes. Treat all living things with respect and dignity. This is the primary truth for all humans; a religion not many are willing to follow. Gods need not apply.

Yes but those religions haven't got the Son of God in them, so they're not worth a dime..Smile

@Romeo Fabulini,
Oh yeah, I feel certain that if a devout, kind and gentle Jew , Muslim, Buddhist, or even agnostic who spent their entire life devoted to the common good and strove for christian ideals (which are universal) shows up to heaven Jesus will tell them to **** off.

Are you saying that the Kingdom of Heaven is now worth one dime? Based on the real estate bubble?

They might get as far as the gates, but whether they get let in is another matter..Smile

THEM- "Can we come in?"
PETER- "Are you mates of Jesus?"
THEM- "Er...sort of, we're nice people"
PETER (calling inside)- "Hey Jesus they think they might be pals of yours"
JESUS- "Nah I don't know them from Adam"
PETER- "Alright you lot, on yer bikes!"

@blueveinedthrobber,
The world is full of empathetic and honest hearted people. This is no doubt what prompted Paul to say:
Quote:
(Romans 2:14, 15) . . . For whenever people of the nations that do not have law do by nature the things of the law, these people, although not having law, are a law to themselves. 15 They are the very ones who demonstrate the matter of the law to be written in their hearts,. . .
However, these honest hearted ones are admonished to heed this warning recorded in the book of Revelation:
Quote:
(Revelation 18:4, 5) . . . And I heard another voice out of heaven say: “Get out of her, my people, if YOU do not want to share with her in her sins, and if YOU do not want to receive part of her plagues. 5 For her sins have massed together clear up to heaven, and God has called her acts of injustice to mind.
Naturally, it would require additional study to sort this out. But, the point is that no at large member of any religious or ethnic group has any special standing with God.

@extra medium,
I truly believe that this question is different for each individual. And the answer lies within each individual themselves. I believe the beginning to philosophy can help anyone looking. Ex. What do I believe? What don't I believe? Why do I believe what I do? Why don't I?

I believe they then will begin to understand themselves, and how they view others. More clearly. Then they can read up on the number of particular faiths, and I believe many will come to a personal revelation of what they do believe or do not. And I believe the answer to each persons question lies in what is the truth. And why do they believe it is the truth.

Others may disagree with my beliefs, and I respect that as well. :-)

Certainly a lot of "believing" being done in those few paragraphs, Servant.

@xXxSERVANTxXx,
So it's up to each of us to decide his own path as to what is right?
That's exactly the offer Satan made to Eve.
How has that worked out?

@neologist,
It did not work out well for us. At first, but then did. I have my faith in Christ, personally. And I do believe that many will find Christ if they look for him. Some may have to find themselves first, but If they are truly seeking they will find him.

I believe the gate to Heaven is narrow, through Jesus' heart But I do believe that. Jesus works all kinds of miracles.

The choice is not difficult, people can either plump for the ONLY religion that has the actual Son of God himself in it, or they can make fools of themselves by plumping for one of the micky-mouse also-rans..Smile

Christianity has Jesus the Son of God as its central core, but-
Islam - doesn't
Judaism - doesn't
Sikhism - doesn't
Buddhism - doesn't
Hinduism - doesn't
Spiritism - doesn't
Bahai - doesn't
Jainism - doesn't
Shinto - doesn't
Taoism - doesn't
Zoroastanism - doesn't
Paganism - doesn't
Rastafarianism - doesn't
Scientology - doesn't
Chinese traditional - doesn't
African tribal - doesn't
Cao Dai - doesn't
Tenrikyo - doesn't
New Age - doesn't
Unitarian - doesn't
Native American - doesn't
Fairy-worshipping cults etc - don't

@neologist,
I don't think I had stated my first post clearly. I found my faith in Christ after a conversion from a different belief. And a painful experience that allowed myself to realize Christ is our lord and savior. And although it is not very smart, nor do I advise for others to go that way. I do believe anything is possible with Jesus.

@xXxSERVANTxXx,
If you mean we all come from different foundations, that would be correct. But there can be only one absolute sovereign, the true God, and one mediator, Jesus Christ. In the end, at the last of the book of revelation, we will no longer need the mediator and we will return to the state of God's purpose when he created us,

Or they can choose the only religion where the Holy Book was actually dictated by an Angel of God, Islam. Blah blah blah, see above.

Everything you say is based on blind faith, there's no proof of any of it. No proof Jesus was the Son of God, there's no real proof he even existed.

@izzythepush,
If you take what all three scriptures say then yes, I have not read the entire Qur'an. But if it is of the same Abrahamic God then it is possible to make it to Heaven that way, but the gate is Christ, and faith. Because if one believes in Islam, then anything said against the spirit will not be forgiven. In this life or next. But by Jesus, anything done against the body will be forgiven. I think it is best to go through the heart of Jesus, and not Islam, nor J.W. still too difficult

I had a close up look a long while ago at what had been produced after 1400 years and I can assure you that what Christianity had produced at that time was a considerable improvement despite not being anywhere near perfect. They couldn't twang a suspender-belt strap for goodness sakes. Or have one twanged. Their whole youth wasted.

Some of the people I was with held a much less sanguine view than I did.

@spendius,
Arabic as written has visual balance. The claim is that the Koran is perfect, that it could only have been written by a divine being, that to change just one word would knock it out of balance.

There is also a challenge, that if someone were to doubt its divinity they should try to reproduce said, and so far nobody has.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not making these claims, and I've yet to meet anyone fluent in Arabic who is not a Moslem , to ask what they think.

There is a tradition in Islamic art not to make anything perfect in deference to God. The carpet weaker will incorporate a small flaw in the weave, and so on.
