Why is "Christianity" or other denominations of "God" concidered the only true religion?

There's plenty more, but half the planet seems to think that "God" is the only way of religion.
It's so silly, where did it all start where we have to follow "Him" and ONLY "Him"???

  • ~shrug~ I dunno.. but if you have ever read the bible, He (god) has quite the ego.. maybe it rubs off on his followers?

  • "God" a very broad term. Many different religions besides Christianity have "Gods". I don't think what you're stating is the case. Different religions believe in different things. Personally, I DON'T believe in one "right" religion. I believe that people can worship God in many forms, yet still be worshiping the same, if that makes sense. if they are good and true, I thin that's what matters. I don't think that just because people worship one religious sect and not another that they're doomed.

  • Because He created us and sustains our life, our planet, everything. To the unbeliever these things are foolishness, but to those who believe they are life.
    God created Adam and Eve, without sin, gave them a wonderful home that was perfect for them. They had only one thing they were not allowed, fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Saten tempted them and eventually they gave in. God could have wiped them from the planet but He had a plan to save them. He would give His only Son, Jesus, to die on the cross for the sins of all man kind. Doesn't sound like an ego trip to me...sounds like grace.

  • Because the foundations of Abrahamic religion is monotheistic Zoroastrianism, the entire basis of it's philosophy is xenophobia - fear of any people remotely different. The religion was built to intentionally terrify people to have anything to do with anyone not like them. Part of that was convincing them that there is only one true religion and to so much as talk to someone who believes otherwise is a ticket straight to damnation.

  • As I understand it god has always been since the creation of time. Well sin happened and we fell away from God's grace. So we make up our own God's and ask them for blessings and make unto them sacrifices. So soon NO ONE believed in God except for the hebrews. Hence why God becamse known as God of the hebrews. Well this God of the hebrews shows his power throughout time. Even sends his son to earth to die for us so that we may be saved. So then Jesus dies and goes back up to heaven, along with like 3000 souls that he raised as well. Read about it that's in the bible too. Since then God and christianity have been pretty firm that god is the only one. The reason we have so many other god's is that we strayed and decided to worship the space and the earth and the things in it. So God got lost and got replaced by a god. So now there is no record they don't even know about God, they just know their god.

  • There is STRONG evidence that a man named Jesus lived about 2000 years ago. He did come in the lineage of David, aka the tribe of Judah and was considered an illegitamet child due to the fact that his mother got pregnant out of wedlock. Now it is also known that he claimed to be the son of God. Wether he is or not is the faith factor. I think we have Cain the son of Adam and Eve to thakn for the different god's.

  • rhanford,

    Where is this 'strong evidence' you speak of? Jesus was a VERY common name back then, and since you don't know his last name...

    Archaeologists have unearthed the tombs of 71 Yeshuas from the period of Jesus' death. The name also appears 30 times in the Old Testament in reference to four separate characters—including a descendent of Aaron who helped to distribute offerings of grain (2 Chronicles 31:15) and a man who accompanied former captives of Nebuchadnezzar back to Jerusalem (Ezra 2:2).

  • If someone is of a certain faith that tells them that their God is the only God...why would you think they would therefore accept other religions and gods as the "truth" or even as possibilities ? Isn't that a little silly? Just because your beliefs allow you to include the beliefs of others doesn't mean everyone else needs to think the same way.
