How Do I Know Which Religion Is True?

Although some estimates place the number of different religions above 4,000, there are really just a small handful of major world religions. Of those, how can we know which one – if any – is true? We have pulled together a number of articles that we hope will help answer this all-important question.

Islam or Christianity: Reflections on God’s Greatness

How is God great? That is Islam’s Grand Central Question. In the years of my life when I followed Islam, two special Arabic words were so important that they almost appeared to take on a physical form when spoken. When the resonant voice of the muezzin said the words in the not-quite-musical, not-quite-atonal call to prayer, the words seemed to hang in the air like smoky vapors in the serpentine Arabic script. “Allahu Akbar,” the muezzin’s voice would call out—“God is great.”

Do Muslims and Christians Worship the Same God?

On December 15, 2015, Wheaton College, a flagship of evangelical educational institutions, placed one of its professors on administrative leave for “theological statements that seemed inconsistent with [their] doctrinal convictions.” Five days prior, donning a hijab and staking her position on a variety of controversial matters, Larycia Hawkins had stated on Facebook, “I stand in religious solidarity with Muslims because they, like me, a Christian, are people of the book. And as Pope Francis stated last week, we worship the same God.”

Unveiling Mormonism

Mormons can be some of the most amazing people you will ever meet. They are kind, loyal, family-centered, and moral. It is crucial that you show them an outward display of love when you are sharing the Gospel with them. They need to know that you love them and have a sincere desire for the salvation for their souls. There was a saying that we used as Mormon missionaries: "People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care."

The word “Gospel” is in the Bible nearly 100 times. Literally translated, the word gospel means good news. But, sadly, many people have never actually heard this good news.

Secret Church 16: A Global Gospel in a World of Religions

A multiplicity of religions exists in the world, all claiming to hold the truth (or at least some truth) about who we are, how we got here, what we’re doing, and where we’re going. Billions of people believe in Christianity, while others embrace Islam. Some are Hindu and others are Buddhist. Amidst it all, many are atheist, or at the very least agnostic.

Choosin' My Religion

Hey, I gotta question!” yelled a student from the back of the room. I was sharing the claims of Christ at a University of Massachusetts fraternity house when he interrupted me. “Yes, what is it?” I queried. “I think Jesus is great for you, but I know Buddhists and Muslims, and they’re just as sincere as you are. And they think their views are true just like you do. There’s no way a person can know his religion is the ‘right’ one, so the best thing to do is to just believe everyone’s religion is true for them and not judge anyone.”

Is Christ the Only Way?

If you’re Christian, you’ve probably encountered these or similar questions. If you’re not a Christian, you may have asked some of these questions yourself. They are reasonable questions that deserve reasonable answers. This article will answer them by looking at the concepts of truth and tolerance, briefly exploring differences between competing religions and philosophies and looking at what the Bible has to say.

Don’t All Religions Basically Teach the Same Thing?

Many people wonder why we make such a fuss about Jesus Christ and Christianity, since they believe all religions are basically the same. They assume that all faiths are all talking about the same thing, but are putting it in a different way.
