“Which Is the True Religion of God?
Each person is born in a circumstance which is not of his own choosing”.
The religion of his family or the ideology of the state is thrust upon him
from the very beginning of his existence in this world. By the time he reaches his/her teens, he/she is usually brainwashed into believing that the beliefs of his/her particular society is the only belief that everyone should have.
However, they mature and life exposes them to other belief-system, they begin to question the validity of their own beliefs. The seekers of truth often reach a point of confusion upon realizing that each and every religion, sect ideology and philosophy claim exclusive genuinety to humanity. Indeed, they all encourage people to do good.
So, which one is right? They cannot all be right since each claim all others are wrong then how does the seeker of truth choose the right path?
God gave us all minds and intellects to enable us to make critical decisions. It is the most important decision in the life of a human being.
Upon it depends on his future, Consequently, each and every one of us must examine dispassionately the evidence presented and choose what appears to be right until further evidences arise.
As for me, I have Christ and not religion. Christ my only hope of/for glory.
