I find that so many religions and denominations claim God for themselves and their sects, but who has monopoly of God? Is it not fair to think that our need for God came from an innate desire to have questions answered about - why we are here? How are we suppose to live? What happens to us when we die? etc.. The world has variety of people that have created cultures and religions...I think no one has monopoly!!

I totally agree with you! No one can claim God as their own. I think having a monopoly came from the different religions need to justify their existence or build up their members. In my view, everyone can speak to God - He or She can be connected to everyone. I couldn't imagine believing in a god that wanted me to hate others because they believed in something "different."

I agree with you totally, no one can have monopoly on God, he belongs to all of us rather than any particular group or sect.

I feel God lives in the heart of each and every individual so if people think they have the monopoly of God they are so very ignorant.

I agree with you. Often the impression I get is 'this is my God or our God and he is superior to yours' but how can that be, is any race or culture superior? I think not and it is within these that we create God:-)
