You ever wonder where all these different religions came from?
I wrote a hub on this issue myself (Is there only one way to God?). It seems to me that the different religions have come from people wanting to set their own standards for what is required to please God. My premise is that God will allow you to set your own standards. The problem is that no one is capable of meeting them.
That's because no two definitions of 'God' exist...even within the same religion and denomination.I never understood how people could debate God without establishing a Definition first.It's like saying 'My apples are superior to your oranges'!Atheists argue 'You haven't even proven there's a Tree yet'!...and everybody keeps quoting Rodney King:"Cant we all just get along" without giving him credit!
I imagine if there ever was "one religion" people gradually developed different beliefs or interpretations and decided to breakoff and start their own denomination or religion.
In other instances it may have been a falling out between religious leaders. One person wants to be the leader and can't if he/she stays in that group. This happens in the business world.
I believe God made man and man made religion!
Religion in many ways was used as a form of government to control society behavior. It established a hierarchy of power.

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?

Is Internet creating a new religion ?There was a time when communication was limited and a few people could travel to the different corners of the earth and that too with spending a lot of time. Spreading and exchanging thoughts in the matters of religion was limited to a narrow circle. But...

We often think of the parable of the talents as a lesson in utilizing your gifts, and doing best with what you are given. (Matthew 25:14-30)What I would like to present is the relationship between different churches in regard to this parable. With so many people born into so many churches, what...
