I am not saying it is all of them, but when encountered with someone who doesn't have the same beleives they tend to express what they feel they are doing wrong only because their views are different. How does your faith become the only truth for someone else, isn't judging a sin? and if so why do religious people continue to do so?

Well the answer if actually very simple! Religions tend to consist of a strict list of rules and beliefs. To be a part of that religion and adhere to those rules and beliefs most religions teach that is the ONLY way to be and all others are wrong. It's a fear tactic that most main stream religions have used to keep their people in "check" and to keep people from straying since before the Israelites. Even the Ancient Greeks and Egyptian Religions tended to teach that your loyalty to the Gods or in most cases a certain God/dess was required to have a happy life and unpunished after life. Those that lived outside the religiously accepted world were shunned and even killed because it was believe that one bad seed could bring down an entire city. Today, people are mostly taught Religion (Mostly Abrahamic Paths) from childhood up. They are taught that living outside of what God has ruled will bring unhappiness and punishment
