Aren’t All Religions The Same?

  • I mean, can't we all just get to God in our own way.
  • How can someone possibly judge someone else simply because they have a different religion?
  • What religion you are doesn't matter, as long as you do what's right.
  • Aren't they all the same anyway? It's not important what religion you practice, what matters is that you do what's right for you. Right?

I think most people who are not Christians or adherents to any other religion think these kind of thoughts most times when it comes to the topic of faith.

It sounds great. It sounds nice. It sounds accepting. It sounds compassionate. It sounds loving. It sounds inclusive.

After all, if those statements are true, then God can't be mad at anybody except those who do bad things and who aren't doing what's right for them.

If those statements are true, God doesn't judge. He loves. There is no anger from the divine. Only warm fuzzies for you along your life journey.

Don't be a hater. Don't judge. Just do what's right for you and I'll do what's right for me.

That's the mantra for today.


Let's talk about it over the next week or so. Is this right? Or is this wrong?
