“Look to Me (the God of the Bible) and be saved, all you ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other” (Isaiah 45:22) – – [and 6 other times in this chapter – – verses 5, 6, 14, 18, 21, 21]!
Having taught Religious Studies at the university for 7 years, I understood that the differences between religions or belief-systems far outweighed the similarities! Political correctness, especially as espoused in the U.S., has advocated the unfounded dogma that all religions believe the same: the same destiny, the same God, the same salvation, etc.
If you were to approach believers of other faiths with this questionable ideology, they would think it laughable. All belief-systems, whether cults, denominations, isms, religions or sects have their own distinctions, AND THEY DIFFER!
The question then becomes, who is right? They cannot all be right in the same way and at the same time! That would be illogical! Only one can be true and correspond with reality – – the way things really are!
Long story short – – why do I believe the Bible to be the truth? There are numerous reasons, for sure. Allow me to just mention a few:
- The unmistakable unity of the Bible is stupendous. Written over a period of 1600 years, it contains no errors or contradictions!
- It is historically correct and reliable! (Mid-Eastern archeologists often consult the Scriptures for their digs and discoveries)!
- It’s predictions have a track-record of 100% accuracy!
- It is the only book with factual information about the creation of this universe, the fall of man, the meaning of life, the inevitability of death, the substitutionary atonement of Christ, and the eternal destiny of mankind!
Please, dear reader, before you criticize or cast doubt on this God-given Book, familiarize yourself with its contents WITH AN OPEN MIND! Then ask God to save you by placing your faith in Jesus Christ, God’s Son, and in Him alone! Only Jesus is THE way, THE truth, and THE life (John 14:6)!

“Which is right?” is a fair question—if one believes in the concept of absolute truth. But what of those people who believe that nothing is true in itself: that truth is only what is true for the person believing it?
Maybe the one that say’s it is the truth. Then goes about proving it through specific prophecies. Each fulfilled hundreds and even thousands(is some instances) of years later. 100% without fail. There is no other faith can do such.
All western religions, cults and sects are the same. Religion is a pile of manure and different denominations are different angles to look at the same pile of manure.
And.. How are they all the same?
Give me specific examples please.
And, Why just western religions? Why not eastern religions?
I’m just curious as to what you think and how you come to that conclusion.
Thanks and have a great day!
