One True Religion

Is one of these religions right?  Is God really on a side?  Is there a God?  Is there anything?  Have we just missed the point all together?

Human beings have been fighting over religion since our ancestors decided to have relgion.  There are billions of people who have very different beliefs and most of them are sure that they are right.  And at least one of them says that he is infallible.  Now I don’t know about that, but in this world, someone has to be wrong.  There either is a God or there isn’t.  There is salvation or there isn’t.  Right? 

Here’s where I am now:  If there is one true religion, then it isn’t here yet.  None of the religions on this planet are “true” in every sense of the word.  Religion brings people together (at least the people in it anyway).  If there is no religion on the Earth that brings everyone together, then there is no one true religion.  Going on, all of the religions on this earth will contribute to the one true religion (if there is one) because in every religion that I have educated myself on, there are extremely valid points about life and perspective.  Even more, most of them have the same themes, they just express them differently.  So they all have a little piece of the puzzle, we just haven’t gotten all the way yet.  Or maybe there isn’t a way to get to.

So here’s the question.  Tell me what you think.  Is there one true religion?

    There is no one true religion. Only one true faith. Whether you have it or not is up to you. 🙂

    Ah, the decision we must make for ourselves. It does always come back to that and I agree. I do wonder though, what that faith is in? Is it God, nature or is it ourselves? I think the last is necessary for any faith we do have. Thanks for the comment Chris.

    You wonder? I don’t. 🙂

    Questions are painful. Need answers. Find one for yourself, my friend.

    And then, let me know… 🙂

    God is too big for one religion!!!!Who is to put limitations on God? Good thoughts

    You make a very good point enreal. Your very good with making a point with such a little amount of words. God is not meant to be bound by human conditions. That is the essence of God…unbound, uncontrolled, infinite.

    The Jehovah’s Witnesses have always impressed me with their unity. They are a peace organization. They have even been able to cross cultural differences. For instance in the middle east; a JW Jew will consider a Palestinian his brother.

    This unity has often aroused the interest of individuals who were not Witnesses. Ilse,* for instance, was once a Catholic nun in a convent in Germany. What attracted her to Jehovah’s Witnesses? Ilse said: “They are the best people I have ever met. They do not go to war; they do nothing to harm anyone. They want to help people to live happily on a paradise earth under God’s Kingdom.”

    Then there is Günther, who was a German soldier stationed in France during the second world war. One day a Protestant priest held a religious service for the soldiers in Günther’s unit. The priest prayed for blessings, protection, and victory. After the service, Günther took up his position as a lookout. Through his binoculars, he observed enemy troops on the other side of the battle lines also attending a religious service conducted by a priest. Günther later noted: “Likely that priest also prayed for blessings, protection, and victory. I wondered how it was possible for Christian churches to be on opposing sides of the same war.”
