Is there one true religion?


For centuries--at least 20--people have died for their religion. Christian religions, for example, derive from a Jew, whose followers call themselves Christians because they follow him. Obviously there are religons that are neither Christian nor Jewish. Islam's Quran has many close parallels to the Bible, especially honoring Mary, Marion. I know that I sound naive, but I am rather perplexed by how religion can instigate war and bloodshed.

    A lovely point, well-stated.

    I would add that a small number of people who call themselves Muslims while violating the laws of Islam have tainted the reputation of the millions who do follow the faith.

    I would add that Jews and Muslims also believe in one God.
