Not everyone can be right

Here are some common things you might hear today;

“All religions lead to the same God.”

“There isn’t one true religion.”

“Every religion is right.”

Really?  Does that sound like good logical, common sense to anyone?  Lets look at these statements a little closer to see if this actually makes sense.

Can truth contradict itself?  No. You read this next paragraph and tell me if you see any contradictions…

     Buddhism is pantheistic and says there is no personal God, and everyone can reach “godlikeness” on his own. Islam says that Jesus was just a prophet and not the only way to God. Christianity says that there is a personal God and that the only way to Him is through Jesus (John 14:6).

  If these three religions are “all true”, or just “different paths to the same place”, then why do they contradict each other? Does truth contradict itself?

I honestly think the statements given earlier are just lazy attempts at answering a question you haven’t researched for yourself yet.  No, not every religion is the same.  No, not every religion has the truth.  I understand that in todays day and age, that will hurt peoples feelings.  “How dare you say I’m wrong!”  Well, deal with it.  Not everyone can be right.

Investigate for yourselves why you believe what you believe.

  1. Having the same conversation with my fifteen year old daughter. I told her that she needs to figure out what she believes. She can’t believe something because I do or choose to believe something different just to be different. Life seemed simpler 20 years ago.
