Which religion is correct?

Postby Sanghyeok » Mon Nov 02, 2020 11:17 am

As title says, which religion is most likely to be true? There exist many religions in our world today, practised by different people and with varied histories and beliefs. So, which one of them do you believe to be correct? Which one answers the most questions correctly, or which one makes the best arguments, which one is most logical? Is Christianity more correct than Hinduism? What about Zoroastrianism and Islam? Can they even be compared?

In my opinion, the most likely religion to be true is a polytheistic religion. My reasoning is that having competing Gods make more sense than having a single immortal God.

I believe it is Islam. It’s belief in the Big Bang and evolution, it’s emphasis on equality of all races and genders, the fact that while not pacifist in doesn’t condone senseless slaughter, it’s encouragement of treating those of other faiths equally, it’s emphasis God is one and one alone, all are some of the reasons I believe it is true.

It gives me some comfort to think Judaism has it the most right, even if I'm not exactly a good adherent. I like the idea of one all-encompassing deity who has made Himself known to so many people in so many different ways, whose followers strive to improve and prepare the world for the day when He welcomes them all into an eternal peace. It's at least partly escapism for me, admittedly, but in days like this it's hard to not want an escape, y'know?

(my opinion, none) religion is a scam invented by poor people to make money.

everyone has a right to support whatever they want.

If there is a God, why would they need aid? Shouldn’t a God be one who has ultimate power, on who needs no partners in controlling the universe?

I'm a Christian, and many other religions seem either interesting or bad.
I dislike some religions, which I won't say, but I still feel like a God would love everybody, regardless of what they do, and that is the Christian God.

He puts us through challenges to make us stronger as a people. Either way, those who die will go to Heaven with him for eternity.

Personally I believe in the salvation of all Abrahamic Religions, as I am a Christian, and I believe that because we share the same God, it is also the true God.

In Islam, we believe most bad things that happen to you are tests from God. Also, some bad things are “blessings in disguise” as we say.

I do not believe that any religion is called the "correct one", if you ask a Christian he will say that his religion is correct, if you ask a Hindu he will tell you that his religion is correct, if you ask an atheist you I will say that no religion is correct

But why do you think there is only one God?

Consistent laws of physics imply design to me. A being above the laws of physics and able to design them would probably be only one in number. If such a being exists, how can any other being call itself a god?

Oddly enough, Buddhism. It's support pacifism, protecting the environment and doesn't believe in one higher being. I'm not like a devout buddhist or anything, but it's got some good wisdom there. but in the end, no religion is truly correct because the concept is flawed. (plus, reincarnation makes a ton of sense. It's not like when you die you just lay there in a sea of blackness)

No, we cause plagues, viruses, and disasters as a result of our sin. God is like a parent, they'll let you get yourself in trouble, but they'll warn you of the consequences.

I really dislike that claim...that anything bad is simply a test. It's one of the reasons I don't really believe in a single God.
