Why do people of different religions constantly argue which is the the "true" religion?


It seems like a never ending cycle. It seems like a war of words. I became caught in it at one time myself. I don't know that anyone will ever win it?

    I see you haven't met Jesus...yet. "My sheep hear my voice and they know me."

    I would argue and suggest that religion is an obstruction in the path to true spirituality. The path to spirituality requires an open mind willing to question and seek understanding. Religious doctrine quashes this demanding blind faith and belief.

    Ketage, I agree with you. We are all at different stages in our spiritual development. Let each one find the religion that suits him or her most. Not everyone can relate to a formless God.

    Good answer. Almost everyone here is answering this question in Christian terms. The question is about religion - not Christianity.

    I think that the truth is much more complicated, and that we can consider Jesus to be a Boddhisatva.

    That's why Christ was crucified...he stirred the pot...then He told us to stir the pot too. 10 of 12 apostles were martyred, 1 was sent to Patmos. What they shared was worth talking about and dying for. It still is. Be strong!

    Cults are a big joke, yes but when people believe in God they sometimes take things to an extreme . Teaching things and misinterperting HOLY SCRIPTURE. there is the danger. People need no Cult or unbiblical org telling them their status with HIM.

    The problem with your love is that it is selfish love. It has a hook in it. Human beings cannot love unconditionally without God's Agape (unconditional) love in them, and that only comes from Christ coming to live inside of us.

    I could not disagree more. Your assumption is that there is only one religion. There are plenty of religions out there: valid or invalid. And yes, that includes Scientology. Think of religion as a practice and faith as belief.

    Substitute "jihad" for "crusade" and you change the paradigm for some. It's sort of the same difference between terrorist and freedom fighter. It all depends on what side of the dogma you're on.

    hate to disagree, religion and God are two different things, religion is a term which defines how God is veiwed. Only a True Valid Bible Based, backed up with history and etc is a way for people to find God, Please read me and see that I do know it.

    Almost. You hooked me with the vocabulary issue. Religion is practice. Who you are and what you believe is philosophy. Everyone has a philosophy - you don't need to have a religion. The question - which no one here has addressed is "Why?"

    QUOTE: "The Christian faith is the ONLY doctrine that condemns a mans wickedness..."

    Not too sure about that... I like to read about various religions and so far, I haven't heard of any religion that does not condemn a man's wickedness.
