To claim that all religions are essentially the same is to say that it doesn't matter what you believe as long as you're sincere—and this neglects the fact that you can believe something sincerely and be sincerely wrong. Boston University religion scholar Stephen Prothero’s new book, God Is Not One: The Eight Rival Religions that Run the World—and Why Their Differences Matter, bluntly refutes the notion that all religions share a fundamental goal. However, truth, by its very nature, is exclusive. He is the center and foundation of the Christian faith, and He also is the reason why Christianity is different from all the other religions that people follow. Re: Why all the religions have similar aspects Post by Pattern-chaser » Thu Oct 31, 2019 4:31 pm Religions all attempt to help us in understanding the world, and (it seems) that was why … We’re all aware of personal failings and the need to be better. The difference between the religions you’ve been studying and Christianity can be summarized in two words: Jesus Christ. But other religions that are not that similar to Christianity have ethical codes as well. In Islam, Allah created the Earth and all life on it. Arguing that the three religions all come from Abraham and his faith also runs into a similar problem. Let me explain it this way. Actually, true Christianity is not a religion, but a person, Jesus Christ. This is what leads to the creation of religions. Hitler held his beliefs with sincerity—that doesn't make them true. Its claim to be necessary for salvation is based squarely on the uniquely powerful evidences for its truth and finality. Only one—true, biblical Christianity—leads to eternal life through forgiveness of sin provided by Jesus' sacrifice on the cross for sin (Romans 6:23). We also want to feel at peace, fulfilled and having inner strength. They are all heading … Each to their own; it’s all OK. All false religions lead to God's judgment. A ll religions are not the same—Biblical Christianity is absolutely unique among all the religions and philosophies of mankind. Often, these sub-religions, or sects, or groups, differ almost as much from each other as the major religions differ among themselves. But a lot of the time many people have a sense in the back of their minds that it doesn’t really matter which religion a person believes. For example, many religions have elaborate sets of taboos that govern their adherents behaviors. Like Christianity and Judaism, the Muslim God is a kind and merciful one who wants humanity to live moral lives and help each other. Like many religions, including Christianity and Judaism, Islam is a monotheistic religion where followers worship one supreme omnipotent God. On one level it is easy to say no, of course all religions are not the same. All religions are working on the same problem. In a sense, all religions do lead to God, but not in the way most people think.
