  • I'd say Buddhism. Why? Because that what their leaders teach. Some Christian churches are as well, but I suppose all religions have members who are.

  • According to the (non-Christian) Sociologist, Rodney Stark in his book, The Rise of Christianity: A Sociologist Reconsiders History, it is Christianity.

  • I have to say Christianity. The foundation of Jesus's teachings is to be kind, and to express goodwill towards others, as well as selflessness.

  • My personal view.

    They are all benevolent.. One is not any more benevolent than the other. All religions are equal in my eyes. All are full of love, wisdom, wise teachings and guidance. All have something to offer it just takes being willing to see what all they each have to offer the world/people. It is what one choose to take from a religion, how one chooses to follow that religion, what one chooses to do with a religion that makes a religion look less than others, not the religion itself. People bastardize religion for their own means everyday, those people lack benevolence, not the religion they choose to bastardize.

    Being raised Hindu. I believe ALL religions are a path to God. There is no one single true path. Only a true path for each individual. I find benevolence in all religions. However, I do not find benevolence in all followers/believers/adherents.

  • Of course, as expected, anyone who says Christianity gets down voted. Haters.
