I went with the faith that was proven by the prophecies of the Old Testament. Jesus Christ fulfill over 300 Old Testament prophecies. Moderator cut: off topic

I believe the Christian faith, because Jesus reveals things to me. So yes, He does speak to me in an audible voice that I can hear. It's rare, yet it does happen. And these encounters give me good reasons to follow the religion I do.

The op is:

if you had to choose one religion to follow which one would you follow??

Campbell this is the question. We all know you are a Christian. We all know you have no respect for any others or their religions. This op is not a debate on religion, much less Christianity and how it might be the best.

It is not the best it is just another choice.

I find it hard to imagine any situation where I would ever start to believe in God but the only group of people I can think of that fit me better than any other Faith are the Quakers. I love their non judgemental accepting ways, their simple and frill free services and places of worship but most importantly to me their social activism and all embracing tolerance.

The Quakers to me are who we should aspire to be as human beings generally speaking.

If it wasn't for their belief in God I would probably already be a Quaker ! They are about as close to Humanism as I can imagine for a religion. And I have a great deal of respect for them.

Any whose tenet is positive and not negative. Most elements of Christianity are so wrapped up in the guilt trip routine. I was quite enlightened when I once was married to someone of the Jewish faith. I actually enjoyed going to some of the services which were so positive in outlook and dwelled on that positivity. Rather a far cry from, for instance, the doom and gloom of Catholicism.

PS. I'm not one for labels but if I were to assign a label to my beliefs it would be a tossup between agnosticism and atheism.

After walking through many religions and happily leaving Christianity behind I became a Jew.

There are other choices other then Christianity that can give one spiritual fullfilment without guild and fear.
