Each person who says that their religion is the truth does so really believing that they are right! I'm a Christian and I believe in my religion and believe that it is the ultimate truth but I don't just "say" that Christianity is the truth but I fully believe it is and it's my faith that keeps it "the truth" in my mind and heart. It's not about "saying" things about your religion that makes it real to you, it's the feeling in your heart and the faith you have in the religion is what matters. I've had so many trials and tribulations in my life (and no my life is not perfect, I'm not saying it is now) but I've gotten through all of them with the help of God and I don't think it was Him who helped me but I KNOW it was Him who helped me and got me through it all. So I don't know what religion you are or if you are anything at all, but I hope you have faith in what you believe in or else it's just not doing anything for you!

I am a bit confused when you say that"I don't think it was Him who helped me but i KNOW it was Him who helped me" I've known people who live in a double standard kind of life when it comes to their religion, other people say that it's purely faith and others say there should be work for it to be fulfilled and to think that they all base everything in one book!

I think that, in itself, "religion" is man-made. After studying religions and their evolution for a while, and the staggering number of divisions among even the same groups, I have to say that as we learn more about the world we live in through the advances of science, we "create and alter" what we need to feel connected to the still-confusing world around us. I do believe in higher power, but am not a Theist. I think that it doesn't matter whether we call our "higher power" Jesus, Allah, Jehovah, the Great Spirit, or Horus, it is the same thing. We are all already "connected" to that "thing" we are seeking long before our self-imposed religious divisions even enter the picture and keep us warring against one another. I can't think of many battles in history that didn't originate due to these divisions. I do not want to be a Christian if it means I have to think of every non-Christian as "sinful or evil". I do not want to be Catholic if it means I have to consider Christians or Jehovah's to be "wrong". I do not want to be Pagan if it means I have to consider ALL other groups as being undereducated about the origins of faith.
