What religions teach personal relationship with God?

What religions emphasize having a personal relationship with God? I was told having a personal relationship with God is not only found in Christianity but also in many religions, including many Wiccan faiths, Sikhism, etc. Is this true?

  • Yes, its true.

    Just about every belief system has a higher being that you try and have a relationship with.

  • A personal relationship with Jesus is taught in Christianity. Jesus the son. Christians pray to him and ask for things "In Jesus' name, amen." Jesus then intercedes on our behalf before God the Father.

  • Yes, many relationships stress a personal relationship with the divine, though the form/personification of the divine may vary.

  • Yes. Follow your path, not someone else's. Seek GOD in your own way.

  • I don't think anyone needs to be taugh how to have a relationship with God, that's a something that you do if that's what's right for you.
    Shaneagle777, there are many different religions out there, don't be so close minded. You pray to your God and accept that others are praying to theirs.

  • Well Shaneagle is very wrong. Judiasm is all about our personal relationship with G-d. Have you ever heard of the Sh'ma? It is the prayer that Jews say every morning and every evening. It says:

    Hear, O Israel
    Adonai is our G-d
    Adonai is One

    Christians are hardly the only ones who say there is one G-d. Where do you think you got the idea?????????
