    Today some say that all the religions worship the same God. He has revealed himself in different ways but the one worshipped is the same God. Well, lets go back before Jesus was born. There were many religions including the Jewish faith and the Buddist faith. Using our premise of the 21st century stated above, God must have revealed himself in these religions before Jesus was born. So let me ask, Why did God the Son come here, live, die a horrible death and rise to life? If God had truly revealed himself in these religions, then why add a new one? To give us another religious flavor! This make no sense, does it. To confuse us! This doesn’t make sense either. Why would God want to confuse us if he is desiring to be known. Or because He didn’t really reveal Himself in these other religions until He came as Jesus the Christ. Because Jesus is the way, the truth and the life! This makes sense to me. New religions have come about because as Rob said, we are seeking to know and trust our creator God. We are seeking but haven’t found the One true God through Jesus Christ. Let’s read the Bible to see who this Jesus is.
