Jesus was fed up with religion . He essentially suggested to stay away from " man" as they disappoint via misinterpreting the word and via hypocritical behavior.
Jesus spoke to 7 congregations in Revelation--- many nt books are written to congregations( Galations,Ephesians,collosians, etc---- Even the Pharisees called Jesus new religion a sect( cult)

1Cor 1:10-- united in thought worldwide as one under Jehovah God and his son.

Mark 3:10-12-- a house divided will not stand--trinity religions)--not Jesus'

Matthew 7:13“Go in through the narrow gate, because broad is the gate and spacious is the road leading off into destruction, and many are going in through it; 14*whereas narrow is the gate and cramped the road leading off into life, and few are finding it.

That's what Mohammed taught. Christians sleep until the resurrection.

Default Is There Only one True Religion as the Jehovah's Witnesses Believe?

No. There is only one true God! All religions are human attempts to understand and explain the ONE true God. In so many ways . . . they are ALL wrong because they focus on what to believe ABOUT God. God is concerned about OUR spiritual maturation . . . NOT ANY religion and its "precepts and doctrines of men.".

We failed miserably to even remotely approach Spiritual maturity as a species. We needed a human who could actually achieve perfect agape love and righteousness in His consciousness (Spirit). That is why Christ exists. He is the "first-born" human Spirit (Holy Spirit/Comforter) who achieved, taught and demonstrated what God wants from each of us. He abides with us within our consciousness (Comforter) to guide us to the truth God has "written in our hearts" in agape love.

Pretty good explanation. God really cares LESS than ZERO what we do for Him or teach ABOUT Him---why can't it be Her?

God cares so much more what we do for OTHERS and what we say ABOUT others. Go doesn't even care what NAME you use, it is all about our intent and sincerity.

If we do not have a positive intent with sincerity, I suppose God will discuss that with us when the time comes. Until then, CARRY ON and LOVE

Weren't the Pharisees sincere in their religious traditions ? yet they were wrong, dead wrong.
- Mark 7 vs 1-7,13; Matthew 15:9 and Matthew chapter 23.

That is why the ' future tense ' is used at Acts 24:15 that there ' is going to be ' a resurrection....
That is what the prophet Daniel looked forward - Daniel 12 vs 2,13 - living forever on earth - Psalm 37 vs 11,29

I do not think they were sincere, based on the comments Jesus made--

"And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.

When Jesus calls them hypocrites, that pretty much eliminated any and all sincerity...

Who goes where? Why was the thief told THIS DAY YOU WILL BE WITH ME IN PARADISE?

Was the thief one of the 144,000? What special dispensation was he given?

"There's only one true religion, and it's mine!" -- said by nearly every religious person who ever existed.
