It is ISLAM, the oldest and first religion on Earth. Islam is not a new religion founded by Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him).
Islam is the same way of life practiced and preached by all the Prophets of Allah (The Almighty) right from Adam, Noah, Abraham, David, Suleimaan, Musa (Moses), Isa (Jesus)(peace be on them all). The last and final Prophet of Allah (The Almighty) who came to preach this way of life called Islam is Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him).

Actually many people are confused about the Muslim religion. Religion of Muslims is the most oldest as well as the youngest religion on earth, because firstly it religion which teaches the law of only Almighty of the whole Universe & what HE wants. Secondly, The Almighty ALLAH sent HIS messengers /prophets in phases. According to Islamic scholars in Mecca & Medina there are around 1,25,000 messenger/ prophets send by ALLAH. All prophets are male and are Muslim. All have same objective of preaching is Laailahaillallah which means (There is no God except ALLAH) and he himself is the prophet. Each prophet has their own followers, civilization, tradition & culture blessed by ALLAH in the form of Holy Books or writings or the commands to which the followers accept and do. But every Holy Books or writings or commands (except Quran) was either changed or extinguished by the manipulation or disobedience of people towards Allah. The first prophet of Muslim religion send by ALLAH was prophet Adam. After him, his followers practiced the religion as he told but after some years it began to extinguish; then ALLAH send the second prophet of Muslim religion to continue his laws on earth. After the second prophet his followers practiced religion as he told but after some years it again began to extinguish; then ALLAH send the third prophet, like this way the prophet line continued up to the last Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
If you read Quran then you will find that Religion of Prophet Adam (peace be upon him) is same as Religion of Prophet Nuh (peace be upon him) is same as Religion of Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) is same as Religion of Prophet Isa (peace be upon him) is same as Religion of Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him). They were all Muslims.

Hello
Paganism truly is the oldest form of religion, Infact Jesus was a pagan not a christian or a jew.
Early romans created christianity for political power. Jesus was totally against the romans because of what they stood for, total power and total control. Jesus used spells and magic.
He was not the miracle worker that most religions view him as, their was no devine power. Jesus also practiced homosexuality which was very practical in paganism. Pagans believed in sexual expression. Old pegans believed that is how people connected spiritualy through sexual intercourse.
Most prayer rituals involved sex of some kind. Romans thought that paganism was dirty even sinful hence the creation of Christianity. It just makes sense why would they crucify Jesus and then base their religion around him.

Revelation 2:1-7..........

Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars
And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
Remember therefore from whence thou are fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.
He That hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

Lost souls overtaken by death and decay such as yourself cannot guide other lost souls except to become lost and die.

The only true religion goes back to the beginning

Genesis 1:1
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

1 Corinthians 15:22
For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

Romans 3:23- For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Romans 6:23- For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 5:8- But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 10:13-For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Romans 10:9- That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Hinduism.

Hinduism is the oldest religion in the world.
It is the third largest religion, with approximately 1 billion followers worldwide, 98 percent of whom live in the Indian subcontinent. After including Yoga followers, Hinduism has around 1.2 billion followers worldwide.
The only official Hindu state in the world is Nepal . India is the most Hindu-populated nation, but it is officially secular.
Many Hindus view all religions as one whole religion. The reason for this is due to the notion that Hindus don't believe that Hinduism is a religion in the first place. There is no one main prophet, no main scripture, no date of when the religion was created, and scripture uses the word Hindu. People who follow the Hindu faith don't generally preach their religion as the "one true religion" over other religions. It is generally taught that if one can find another path that works better, then it is fine to follow a different path, instead of a Hindu path.
Hinduism is the most pacifist religion in the world. There is a statistic that says that India has never invaded another country in the last 10,000 years. Social workers help out the underprivileged but missionaries are non-existent. Hinduism believes that religion is just a path to God, who is present in everything and everyone.

I haven't seen the word of God yet,you are talking about the word of men. The paradox is if we are all God then every word is the word of God.
