    Is all the Religion the same? There is many and in away it seems the same as any other religion just a different name to there gods with different ways of praising that god, All of these Religions have a Satan just like ours with its demons as their god with his angels? Please share your view of this in honesty cause if so then why all the fuss in who is wrong and who is right? As a Christian I can easily say another religion is false but would be unfair if its the same, with just a different believe in their god existence.

    No I'm not talking about antichrist here at all, which yet again all religions have as well (antichrist = against gods will)

      It comes down to a simple 'if two people disagree they cannot both be right; either one or both is incorrect'. In the case of religion both believe they are correct and neither will back down on their assertions.

    Interestingly, your own religion doesn't necessarily have demons or Satan. Only certain sects believe that. What sect within Christianity are you?

        Most Christians I know don't believe demons or Satan are real. A large percentage of those don't believe in hell. They are Christian.

            Must be, one of those Christians who don't believe in the written word of God or the Bible is universal source of universal Truth and Knowledge.

            They must all be Gods, like me except I can simplify follow

            Most means the majority. smile

            You're probably thinking 'I believe in Satan and demons.' Which doesn't imply that most of the professed Christians I know do.

            We all enjoy a good movie about demons. I'll watch Constantine every time it comes on. That doesn't imply I think it is a believable scenario. Which is how most Christians I know view the idea of Satan and demons.

        Kind of depends what we mean by hell,  Satan and demons. The old testament doesn't talk about the hell beloved by Christians, the OT satan is a generic Hebrew term to denote anyone who opposes men rather than the restyled repackaged Satan that Christians talk about, and is a bit of a struggle to find any reference to demons in the OT.

          The Hebrew word sheol  appears 65 times in OT. In the KJ translate sheol  31 times as “Hell”
          Only to mention the most popular Bible- The King James Bible mention Hell 54 times.

          Just take any mention of hell out of the Bibles and I will believe you Christians. It won’t happen because most Christian memberships feed on fear as the world is mostly run on fear than Love.

          Salvation is mention in the Bible 165 times.  I hope I’m good enough when the time comes, or I can just  throw out my no harm and be honest policy out the window for all times.  Just was not extremely good and bad enough towards the one and only way to God,  among the millions of Gods

    The only true religion is Love. Christ talked about this. He said to love your neighbor as yourself. He also talked about this when he said that the first (egoist) shall be last, and the last (humble) shall be first.

    All religions are different. All denominations are different. All are perverted by Ego and are thus not Truth.

    If you are "of spirit," you might find Truth in the teachings of each religion, but those teachings are rarely if ever applied as originally intended. Ego gets in the way and corrupts the understanding. People see it all through a lens of self-concern.

    Take love, for instance. Most people have no idea what this means. I barely have an idea, but I'm still learning. Love has no self-concern. It doesn't feel satisfaction from doing good deeds, for then that would be action for the return of satisfaction and thus would be full of self-concern.

    Those who have no sense of spirituality will never be able to grasp this, because this is a spiritual viewpoint.

    Too many so-called Christians are too anxious to be right than to be humble and loving. Thus, they are not following Christ.
