Let's assume that there is a God.
Why do you think that the God of christianity is the real God and the God of muslims or other religions are not real?

simply stating that the bible says so is not a good reason in my opinion because the books of other religions say so about their Gods also.

I'm interested in finding out the logic or rational behind this. Have you ever considered the possibility?

Yes I have. So we shall leave this to the Judge of all to determine the hearts of man. We are called to love one another, as our brothers and sisters, and proclaim to good news of the Kingdom. Nothing more, and nothing less. If you choose not to believe, well, I still love you no matter what. May your days be blessed and many, and may your family be in good health. In His Name we pray, amen!

Upon salvation, Jesus healed an unhealthy looking skin spot on my shoulder. Then, He pulled me out of sin that only His power could do. Also, I have witnessed many others receiving miracles, including the healing of AIDS. Jesus said that He would confirm His Word, and He does not lie.

Seek, and ye shall find. Jesus is the Tree of Life.

Of course I've considered the possibility, Christianity is about faith, and w/faith comes doubts, so I have quesitoned it at various times.

However, Jesus said "I am the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me." You either believe Him or you don't, he's either who he claimed to be - the son of God - or a madman who lost his mind. If you don't believe that, you can hope that one of the other religion's gods are the way to salvation, but it can't be both.

Also, only Jesus predicted the way he would die, then died and rose from the grave (again, you have to have faith to believe this, you can choose not too, but I choose based on what I've seen in my life following Christ's example and on research I've done about the event both from the Bible and outside sources to believe it). Mohammed didn't do that, Buddha didn't, Joseph Smith didn't either. Death is the ultimate equalizer, it plays no favorites, 100% of people die, so for Jesus to claim and back up all that He said and then to be resurrected from the dead, not to mention he died for something He didn't deserve, leaves me trusting & believing that Christianity is the only way to really have a relationship w/God.

I don't .I don't believe there is one true religion.

I believe in eternal life , which is not about going to heaven one day.

John chapter 10 verse 10

Jesus said i have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly

John chapter 17 verse 3

Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

Christianity is not a religion, it's a relationship. We experience God everyday, it's something we can't explain. No religion can make that claim.

No it's not, it's a religion. If it wasn't the one true religion, what would be the point of believing in it?

We don't believe in it for believing sake. The bible is CLEAR, none of us believe unless He reveals Himself to us. God ALLOWS us to believe, He allows us to see when we were born spiritually blind.

Do you know any religion that says the same or comes close to that?

Will anyone answer my question directly please?

i'm looking to hear reasons that you have. as mentioned before, all religions claim that their God is the one and only God.

i'm interested in learning the reasoning (specifically) behind you believing your religion and thinking that all other religions (and their Gods) are wrong/fake.
