If there is a God, then how do we know what religion is following that God?
There are hundreds of religions, and thousands of off shoots of religion, and many are divergent from each other. So how do we know what is the true religion, and the true God, if one exists at all.
We'll never know, and that's my main problem with religions. With the ability to interpret any scripture in multiple ways, any prophet could claim a supposed evidence for their own religion.
The true religion is the one you find the best yourself. And then you'll understand that the meaning of religion is not a belief in a deity, but morals you find suitable and approachable, once again, yourself. There's of course the idea of an afterlife and other tenets, but as far as I saw no people could give me the same definition or description of heaven no matter how many people I asked from the same denomination.
A lot of people will tell you that their religion is the correct religion. I find that religion is, as Medvekoma says, based on a set of morals. Every religion has them. The question of "Is there a God" is simply based on faith and whether you trust your holy scriptures are correct.
The most honest and simple answer: we don't know. Probably never will.
Still doesn't stop people from screaming that their religion is the 100% true one to follow and everyone should live by.

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...

Do you think religion compels morality, or does morality determine religion?Obviously the relationship is somewhat multi-directional for most people, but I'm wondering which you think is more powerful. Do people usually choose a religion that aligns with their preexisting morality? Or do they...
