OK - If you are Christian, Muslim, whatever. This is my question. With so many different religions in the world. All with millions of people claiming they are completely right. All having books, a god or gods, and so much history behind each one that it makes us all look so insignificant. HOW can you POSSIBLY be convinced that the specific religion taught to you by your parents, elders, whoever is the correct one? Not only that but you must also believe the other millions of people from other religions have ALL got it wrong?? It almost seems narrow minded to be religious? BTW - nobody get offended here, were all adults for god's sake!! (lol) I am personally not religious in any way but DO respect the views of everyone, I just like to try to understand peoples logic.

While I was raised in a Christian home, as a teen I studied every religion I could find information about. I came back to the Christian faith because the prophecies were fulfilled. I also believe Jesus who said in John 14:6, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

What prophecies were fulfilled? I don't completely understand what you mean by that. I am clearly not overly educated in any particular religion. Christian would probably be the only one that has tried to get me involved (a few times). But I just don't see how any one religion is any more correct or has any more 'proof' than any other religion. Perhaps it is just the act of believing something that gives people such happiness. I'm sure if you read the Koran, you would find many things said that are just as passionate and equally as hard to dis-prove (or prove for that matter) as any Christian or Bibles view or belief. Why do we all need to believe something we can't prove anyway? I personally believe humans have no idea why we are here or how we got here. But I'm comfortable with that. Much more comfortable than believing something I could never prove or even answer questions about with any certainty.
