    What is the best religion in the world?

    We all believe in one God! But why there are so many religions in the world.  Which do you think is the best?

    When we refer to religion in the context of being a path to God, it is really a false thing.  There is no such thing as a religion that can lead to God.  Whatever man  formulated in this life, cannot lead to immortal life. 

    A false thing can never lead you to the the truth.  To understand this is rather simple.  Have you awakened to God from any religion?  The Christ was not a Christian and the Buddha was not a Buddhist. 

    And yet, man attempts to awaken spiritually through a religion in which it has never brought realization to anyone.  No spiritual awakening and no peace in the world and yet we as human beings still cling to our particular religion.  How sad.

    Good question!  The "best" religion is no religion at all, but rather a personal relationship with the son of God, Jesus Christ that you can only have through Bible study and guidance of the Holy Spirit. No other religious leader made the claims that Jesus made and no other book comes close to the Word of God, the Holy Bible. The Bible is the written Word of God. It has never been disproven. It has survived banning and burning. It offers an accurate historical account of ancient times, fulfilled prophecy and a promise of everlasting life in heaven through the finished work of Jesus Christ. Everything else is man-made religious doctrine.

    This is my personal religion.  I have studied many, but generally speaking, I use the following in my daily life.

    The Rose Colored view of God and love/ beautiful communication of the Sufis
    The detachment of desire from Buddhism (this is a hard one)
    The realistic advice of Judaism (Old Testament)
    The Hope and forgiveness  of Christianity (New Testament)

    I know this isn't really and answer, but I wanted to share:-)

    I know i'll probably get a lot of negatives for this ... but you asked for my opinion.

    I believe Islam is the best religion of all.

      I'd imagine this means that Islam is the best religion for your spiritual needs

      yes ... it's a way of life ... so it caters for both spiritual and worldly needs.

      well that's cool, but what's great for you wouldn't really work for me at all.
      So that's the greatest religion in the world for you- and it's also great that there are lot of different spiritual paths so we can all find our greatest smile

      i personally believe its the best for everyone, but at the same time not for everyone.
      I like unity therefore i'm not a fan of all the paths but i do respect all of them. If your path makes you a better/polished human being then great.

      kinda how I feel, except I don't think there's one best path for everyone.

      For instance, some people need more certainty than I do, and my faith would be more stressful than comforting to them

      It gets a bit tricky here, but i think when it comes to God; the All Knowing. He knows exactly what a person needs, therefore they all get what they need one way or another, to be content.

    Although I am a devout Christian (I believe that Jesus is The Son of God -- I believe that both The Immaculate Conception and The Holy Resurrection actually happened -- and I believe that Jesus died on The Cross for everyone's sins), I do not believe that any one religion is better than any of the others.

    In fact, I do not believe in religion. In my opinion, religion is a wedge between God and me.

      Given that you describe yourself as a Christian, the fact that you say you do not believe in religion is confusing

    There is no best religion in the world,I think religion only makes us better people because we accept certain terms about that particular religion and by doing so we fit into the groups or group that follow that religion.I think that's the reason people who belong to different religions act and think differently.To some extent religion is makes a person a hypocrite because we tend to learn to judge others by standards set among members within the religion,though we know that the world was created by one universal God.

    Islam is a religion which guides its followers in every aspect of their lives. It is a way of life.
    Islam is the modern or latest version of the message sent by God through Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses and Jesus.

    Islam was sent to mankind through Prophet Muhammad. Islam is "modern" in the sense that it has come to complement the teachings which were introduced through Moses and Jesus.

    Islam is a religion which seeks to give a meaningful purpose to our life on this earth. It seeks to guide us in fulfilling that purpose by creating harmony between ourselves, our Creator and fellow human beings.
    What you will read below are some of the basic features of Islam.

    Islam is a monotheistic religion. It teaches that there is only one God who is the origin and creator of the universe. This is the foundation of Islam, and is reflected in the famous sentence which says that, "There is no god but Allah." (Allah is the Arabic name of God.)
    The belief in God relates us to our origin and guides us throughout our life. The belief in one God shows that man should not worship any material thing or person in this universe.

    By teaching that there is only One God for all humans, Islam promotes the sense of brotherhood and equality in human society--all are equally related to God in the same way. The Qur'an, the holy book of Islam, says:
    He (God) is One, God is Eternal;
    He has neither begotten,
    nor has He been begotten;
    and there is no one equal to Him.

    I believe that faith is not a "one size fits all" situation and different people have different spiritual needs.

    At that point, I believe the best religion in the world is the one that best meets the spiritual needs of the individual. A person that needs more structure in their faith would be happier in something like Catholicism and stressed by something like Unitarianism, and the person who needs a faith with more personal sartori might need exactly the opposite

    And, by the by, not everybody believes in one God, or one Goddess for that matter; and those paths to Spirit are not wrong because they're different from our own...

    I'm currently researching the world's 10 most practiced religions, which include the ones you've listed here.  Based on what little knowledge I have, I think very highly of Buddhism and Baha'ism.  Whether or not either one is the best religion depends on the individual.  Pastor Howard Storm; a former enraged self-proclaimed atheist who had a near-death experience that took him first to hell then to heaven, states he was told by angels that all paths lead to God, and whichever one most served the individual was the best religion.
