Why do both the mormons and jws claim to be the only true religion?

Is there such a thing as the only true religion?

Who should a person believe since no man is perfect?

3. Pray for hol;y spirit to guide you, study, and be assured in your own heart that the religion you follow the right one. Then leave the rest in God's hands.

The only religion Jesus gave us, is to care for widows and orphans in their affliction, but Jesus came to mediate a new covenant between God and men..

that what he came to inaugerate a new way to approach God... Where do these big religious organizations come from?

they come from men trying to forge their own arrangement on God , and refusing to submit to Gods WAY.. Jesus Christ.

Considering that human life started with only two people...there can only be one true religion...which would be the worship of the True GOD Jehovah. Psalms 83:18.

Which is wrong and indicates a serious flaw needing serious attention since it indicates a serious misunderstanding of what Christianity involves. However, if indeed there is flaw and spiritual sickness, then true Christians are called upon to lend a helping hand via counseling such persons and the organization that causes that kind of behavior instead of pointing self-righteous accusatory, sinful, fingers and passing judgment as to their eternal destiny.

Responding to unloving behavior with unloving behavior is returning evil for evil. The Boible tells us not to do that. Instead it tells us that the spiritually ill are in desperate need of help and should be offerred that help in a humane respectful manner and not by constantly and rudely smashing our vehement disaproval over their possibly misguided but nevertheless sincere heads.

Worse yet is the hubris of judging. We are tolds not tro assume the status of judge of a person's eternal destiny based on the use of our meager faculties since that is something that God and Jesus [who are qualified] reserve for themselves and we humans should humbly try to keep our assigned place.

Is that what you understood by my rhetorical question? There is far more to questions than meets the eye my friend. A basic review of rhetorical devices would help familiarize you with the wonderful way in which language can be used to convey nuances of meaning which are obviously preserntly far beyond your ken..

Hi Scotty;
The answer is to gain adherents to their respective religions. On an individual level, conversion would be based in the ideologies beheld in respect to social, traditional, and cultural experiences of each person.

Depends on the religion a person may suscribe to.

That could be the basic question that spawns new religions.

The very belief that there is a true religion is the work of fiction.

It's not religion but faith that heals and forgives us of our sins.

Please, by all means refute that.

FALLACY!

Jesus did not give us religion. Jesus gave us reason to have FAITH in him and in God.

You have allowed the Watchtower to corrupt your thinking.

Jesus is the only way to God, The mormons have their way, The JWs have their way and other false religions have their way. But they are going to have a big shock when they get there and find out how wrong they were.

There is a big difference between religion and regeneration.
Religion is man trying to reach God and trying to fing exceptance with Him.
Regeneration is finding God and being excepted by Him, And having His life, Love, Joy,Peace and power in us.

Most Religions are based on intellectual understanding. The problem with intellectual understanding is that it is restricted to finite concepts.

The nature of GOD is infinitely complex. But this does not stop many from creating definitions of various gods. But logically no definition in human language is going to define GOD but the definition implied by the name stated by GOD in Exodus 3:14 :

"14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you."

Any other definition is based on limitations. GOD has no limitations!

GOD is all that is real! GOD is infinite in nature and any attempt to define GOD in human language is to make a false god as a written or verbal concept . This is what religions do and is why Jesus told us in John 17:3 :

"3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent."

We need to get to know GOD in a real an intimate sense as our heavenly parent but we can not get to know GOD by reading words limited to the fragmented world we live in provided by any of the 37000 religions that base themselves on the Roman patriarchal hierarchical form of Christianity that insists that GOD can only be found in a given church and it's teachings!

But many religions have altered this important scripture to discourage people from leaving their churches and approaching GOD directly as Jesus said to do!

We can each confirm for ourselves the wonderful reality of the statements made by Jesus, "GOD IS LOVE" and "The kingdom of GOD is within you" that are the core of true Christianity and negate the need for any religion based on limited linear thought.

But many are trapped in fear based religions and the saddest cases are those who have become entrenched in the eternal torture myth of the Roman hoax!

We all need to get informed as to the seriousness of this situation and get involved in the essential healing process that needs to be done!

GOD is LOVE. WE are ALL ONE WITH GOD, even the unloving!

Every religion "thinks" it is the right one. It takes the Bible to prove it they are, or if they are not.

Scripture in Ephesians 4 [4] states there is only ONE BODY.. so there is only ONE BODY that we are to be members of, and its the BODY of Christ.

There is a thousand religions but only ONE BODY, and thats the congregation of Jesus enrolled in the heavens, not any earthly organization.
