  • I am a Roman Catholic My Religion is or was my family choice and it is the one I have chosen to remain within the Church, Everyone has a right to their own beliefs and what I believe has nothing to do with my friendships or relationships. I am a Catholic not a converter/missionary and would never try to press my beliefs on anyone else
  • I'm Wiccan, and I do not believe that Wicca is the "one true religion". Indeed, I do not believe that there is any such thing as "one true religion".
  • No, but I certainly don't regard it as the 'one true' religion. I can't know if indeed there is one true religion, let alone if mine is it. I'm open to pretty much any belief system and consider them on equal footing with mine.
  • I don't believe in any "religions". They are "man made". I'm just a spiritualist, a Free Thinker.
  • I am a Christian, and I believe that denominations are just like labels... They will either fall of or burn off. I think that God is much greater then to be confined under one religious description made by man. Closest I can put what I feel about what the “true religion” really is, is found in James 1:27. “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”
  • For me the only true religion is a relationship between what I perceive as god and myself.My own theology is the only thing important in my belief system.
  • no, i'm not mormon. (i'm agnostic.)
  • Yes and no. If you mean by my religion, the denomination I attend, no. I am a christian, but the CHURCH in true terms consists of all those who acknowledge Jesus as Lord and believe in his resurrection. I don't know them all personally, but God does. Now, as a Christian, do I believe that there will only be Christians in heaven? yes and no...yes, I believe that, once there, all people present will be willing acknowledgers of the above truths...but whether they knew a lot about these truths in life is not my call...the Book of Romans begins with Paul explaining "what may be known about God is plain to them (humans), because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities— his eternal power and divine nature— have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse." At a basic level, therefore, all humans, in all times, have known the basic qualities of God- his strength, his power, his care and other qualities....so all those in all times who responded to that basic revelation will be in heaven. However, since God made his further revelations, known as the Old Testament and New Testament, people have had the duty to respond to a deeper knowledge of God, as he has revealed himself. All those who have responded will be there. As I said, I do not know who they are and will make no speculation. But I do know that God has commanded me to tell people about his full revelation, so I do.
  • I'm a Christian and do believe that Roman Catholicism is the one true religion FOR ME. There are many paths to the same destination. I believe that most religions are ways to reach God and learn about what our various calls are here on Earth. If we all started in London, England and we told to get to Perth, Australia do we all have to take the exact same path to get to our destination. Some will want to go fly directly from London to Perth, others will choose to go through Asia, still others through North America. Is one way right and the rest wrong? Religions are like that. They all teach the same basic fundamental truths about loving your neighbour and how you should live your life. Sure there are some differences between the various religions but are they big enough to truly care about? I don't think so. Like John Paul II once said, there are so many similarities between the religions, let us first concentrate on them and we'll look at the differences later.
  • I am a United Methodist; still kind of new, so don't know the difference between Methodist and United Methodist, or if they are one in the same. Anyway, as it has been so eloquently put before my post, only God knows the 'true' religion. I do believe that following the word of God, the Bible, and trying to be as 'Christ-like' as humanly possible is the way to get into Heaven. Of course to be 'Christ-like' you have to accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour and repent of your sins. Great question, AntigoneRising. Hope this helps your inquiry. In His grasp, <:))))<>< My salvation and my honor depend on God; He is my mighty rock, my refuge.--Psalm 62:7
  • I'm Zen Buddhist. I have to twist your question around a bit in order to make a sensible-sounding answer, because Buddhism isn't about capturing the Absolute Truth into a belief system. Some religions do this: they compete for dominance in the game of "our beliefs are truer than yours". In Buddhism, it's considered that the truth is not something which can be neatly wrapped up into a package of beliefs -- each person must develop their ability to SEE the truth in it's original, "unpackaged" form in order to really understand reality. Consequently, Buddhism doesn't offer a package of things you should believe in, and really can't enter the game of "our beliefs are better than yours". Instead, Buddhism offers METHODS and PRINCIPLES which can be used to hone one's ability to perceive without distortion and to expand one's awareness, all in an effort to aid a deep understanding of life which is grounded in personal experience and insight. Some other religions also offer some of these methods and principles, and do give at least some attention to awareness and insight instead of belief systems. However, in my opinion Buddhism is the "purest" form of this kind of religion, because it steadfastly refuses to be distracted into philosophizing, theologizing, and theorizing about metaphysics and other matters which can be so divisive and dogmatic in religious contexts. Overall, I'm supportive of religions... especially the ones which have been around for a long time and have proven they can produce human beings with wisdom, compassion, and creative action. Even when religion gets tangled up into belief systems and self-righteousness, it still provides a framework for spiritual development. Of course, we mustn't be blind to the downside of religion, either -- lots of evil has been done in the name of religion, and anyone practicing in a religious tradition needs to be willing to face the mirror and ask "am I contributing to the suffering and divisions in the world, or am I helping it heal?". That awareness needs to guide us all, regardless of religious persuasion.
  • christian and yes i do. but i also beleive that most religions are really all the majoer points arae the same just a differamt point of veiw
  • no, i am hindu punjabi, i don't believe that there is such a thing as a one true religion. i believe they are all different paths to the same goal.
  • I'm a Catholic, or at least was raised in a Catholic environment. No, I don't think it's the only "true" religion. Nowadays I think there isn't such a thing. I find myself questioning some of the Catholic beliefs constantly.
  • The more time I spend on answerag and debate people the more I realise that I have a lot to learn. I am a Christain and do believe that we need Him for salvation but I am becoming more liberal in my thinking about religion as a whole. I still find myself getting drawn into arguements about it and when I'm done I see how silly it looks to myself and to others.
  • I believe religions have more in common than they are different, and they approach the search for a higher power from different paths. I think different religions all have elements of divine truth. Check out a really good parable about seeing parts of the whole: http://www.cs.princeton.edu/~rywang/berkeley/258/parable.html
  • On one of our mission trips to the Gulf after Katrina I heard a man that was a Buddist say, "When I had to run back in my house and grab my "god" I knew then that he couldn't help me."
  • I am a sikh and ,just like my relegion states, their is no one true religion and all that matters is that you respect God and be a generally good person.
  • I do not believe that any religion is the "True" religion. Because to do things religiously just means to do them out of tradition and with no heart or meaning. Do you remember when Jesus turned the water into wine? Check it out. He commanded the servants to fill the large vats with water. Did you know they were already supposed to be filled with water for hand washing but the bible says they were ceremonial. That means they were there by tradition but not used. Religion is like that. Many empty vats that are made to contain God but are empty. I encourage you to have a relationship with Jesus Christ and turn an empty vat into a vessel of honor
  • i say that all religions are both right and wrong at the same time meaning that they all hold "some" semblance of truth but they get lost along the way and in the end holding to 1 religion blinds you to the bigger picture i mean really i think the concept of god is bigger then any religion can create and i dont think it has anything to do with jesus either i think of god as just being the universe the essence of exsistance i see it as more of an abstract concept then anything traditional
  • Please. A, I'm not religious. And B, I think it is ridiculous to think that any religion is the one "true" religion, because that would mean that man understands God completely, which is just not possible.
  • I don't believe in religion. I have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. John 14:6 says, "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No man comes to the Father but by me."
  • Doesn't every religious person believe that theirs is the "one true"? ;-)
  • Most Christian denominations believe that each of them is the fullest version of the Church of Christ. While the Catholic Church also believes that she is "the highest exemplar" of the mystery that is the Church of Christ, she does not claim that non-Catholic Churches are not truly Christian. The Catholic Church teaches: Furthermore, many elements of sanctification and of truth are found outside the visible confines of the Catholic Church: the written Word of God; the life of grace; faith, hope, and charity, with the other interior gifts of the Holy Spirit, as well as visible elements. Christ's Spirit uses these Churches and ecclesial communities as means of salvation, whose power derives from the fullness of grace and truth that Christ has entrusted to the Catholic Church. All these blessings come from Christ and lead to him. Here is the full text of the recent Church document on the subject: http://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/congregations/cfaith/documents/rc_con_cfaith_doc_20070629_responsa-quaestiones_en.html For more information, see the Catechism of the Catholic Church, section 819: http://www.usccb.org/catechism/text/pt1sect2chpt3art9p3.shtml#819 With love in Christ.
  • I was Mormon. I drifted along the path to hell for quite awhile. Then I found a church which appealed to me. Non-denominational. They had conditions..Oh? Which was. 1. Do you accept Christ as your Savior? 2. Do you trust in God that by accepting Christ you will be saved from hell? 3. Do you reject sin? I said "Yes" to all the questions. "Welcome Brother" You see, I also met "Born Again" Christians who only worshiped at home. Now I am kind of those sermon types, but you know what? They worship Christ and God. Ok, that's fine as that's the rule of the Bible! Oh, another point for the Non-denominational churches. Had a Catholic female and a Baptist male ask our Pastor to marry them. You see, they either had to convert to one another religion to marry in "Their" church. Now how wonderful that was! (OH they already had 3 kids...Oh my!) That's why those who want churches with "Labels" should make sure they can peel them off when needed...:)
  • im a christian and jesus is my homeboy. this may sound a little harsh and may offend people but being a christ follower is the only true religion it says in john 14:6 "Jesus answered, I am the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the father except through me" Other religions made up their own bibles and beliefs or screwed around with the christian bible but the christian bible was made by God's followers and when the world comes to an end everyone will be judged and although we are all sinners only the true believers in God will make it to heaven. It's easy to do worldly things cuz people want to feel accepted so they will do anything like drinking underage, drugs,cursing or whatever but to differentiate from that is a lot harder and God will reward us for that as long as we keep him first in everything.
  • I don't have a religion. All I have is reason and logic. For I am an atheist.
  • &ldquo;Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” James 1:27. I do have a relationship with God our Father through Jesus Christ His only begotten son. I don't belong to any name brand, organized - atypical "religion". I do attend a local church fairly regularly, and enjoy the company of other believers. So, no, I don't believe that there is any "true religion" as u have asked about. Religion is a methodology of showing a form of worship in an organized fashion, and a belief system to try and get close to god or a god. Most religions have some way of earning blessings, and points to help make a way to their version of heaven. Jesus never taught that we need to be part of a religion as we know them. He asked that we follow him. When we follow Him, everything changes.
  • i think so :) but it's more a movement than a religion because there are no rules, dogma, rituals, et cetera. http://www.pantheism.net/
  • Southern Baptists.
  • none, they are all lies
  • I'd say paganism.
  • 5-12-2017 I am Christian. According to our scriptures, religion is something made up by men, and God considers it a wasted effort.
  • The TRUE religion is the obedient one... 1. Be obedient to Jesus' teachings. (Mark 9:7) And a cloud formed, overshadowing them, and a voice came out of the cloud:
