No one is answering the question.
Yes, you believe in your god, but why THAT god? What makes your religion the right one?

atheism (not really a religion, more of the lack of)
it doesn't need blind faith, delusion or propaganda
it doesn't need you to believe in myths or fairytales
it doesn't threaten or bribe you into doing things
it makes logical sense with rationality and scientific research
it emphasises critical thinking and not passive acceptance
I do not make such a claim. My religion is right for me; other people's religions are right for them. I don't expect other people to believe exactly as I do. Choosing a religion or belief system can be a very long journey involving a great deal of research and examination. Some people's research leads them to different conclusions than I personally reached, and that's okay.
I am not in a religion because a religion is when you have to do something to please God. My faith and trust is the right one because it is in the Lord Jesus Christ and what He did on the cross for me. He died for my sins was buried and rose again the third day for my justification. He did it all for me. Romans 4:25 Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification. No other religions has a leader to that for them so it has to be the right one.
I am Jewish by choice and that is because it is the right religion for me. It doesn't have to be right for anyone else.
My religion teaches me that other religions are right for others .
No dogma . Strictly an..... I'm O.K. , You're O.K religion and that is what makes it right for me.
Nothing. My practise of Hinduism is just as valid as another religion, depending on the way they practise it. If someone practises any religion, including Hinduism, in a violent or intolerant way, it is not valid.
1.pagan gods=aliens in ufos=channeled entities=dead relatives during seances=demons=ghosts=fallen angels=ascended masters=satans=devils=enlightened beings=greys=orbs=avatars=anunaki=rebel angels against the true God Jesus Christ
2. God so loved us that He died for us on the cross so that we can be in heaven with Him after we die.
before Christ's sacrifice for us, all people (after they died) went to hell. now, some go to hell, some go to heaven.
Jesus claimed to be the Son of God.
Jesus said "I am Truth." Was Jesus telling the truth when He said that? Or was He a liar?
Furthermore, He said that the only way you can know God is through Him.
Jesus said there is none good but God, then He told someone that He is the Good Shepherd, claiming to be good!
Jesus said that He did ONLY what He saw His Father in heaven do. (No man has seen God at any time, yet Jesus SEES God and copies His behaviors, so Jesus must be something MORE than a mere man, since no MAN has seen God.) He KNEW God. He even said that He came from the very HEART of God, so He could say objectively, "When you've seen ME, you've seen the Father."
Jesus said "I am Life", and again, "I am the bread of Life that has come down from My Father in heaven to give Life.", and again, "I am the water of life. Whoever is thirsty, come to me, and out of his inner-most being shall flow rivers of living waters", and finally, "I am the Resurrection and the Life. If any man believe in me, though he may die, yet shall he live again."
He said, "When you've seen me, you've seen the Father."
He said, "You already believe in God, now believe in me."
Jesus prayed, “Father, I have glorified your name here on earth, now I ask that you would give me back the glory I had with you before the world was ever created.”
But these are just words.
Jesus said that if you REALLY want to know if His teachings were that of a mere man, or from God (implying the existence of said God), then "OBEY THESE COMMANDS, and you SHALL know (one way OR the other)" (Referring to the Sermon on the Mount, beginning in the 5th chapter of the gospel according to Matthew)
These words don't prove that these words are true; all they do is expose you for the hypocrite you really are, because you really don't WANT Truth! You're afraid to even take His challenge!
This is a "litmus" test that Jesus gave, and He said nothing at all about having faith or believing. If you want to know if Jesus really IS the Son of God (the God who is there), (er – DO you really want to know?) then read and obey the Sermon on the Mount.
If Jesus never existed, then nothing will happen. Are you absolutely certain that God is not there? Then take the challenge - if you dare!
If Jesus was a liar, then nothing will happen. Are you absolutely certain that Jesus was NOT the Son of God as He claimed? Then take the challenge - if you dare!
If Jesus was a lunatic, then nothing will happen. Again, prove what you claim by taking the challenge Jesus gave - IF YOU DARE!
If the Bible is nothing more than the writings of some crazy bronze-aged, goat-herding cave men as the atheist mockers keep insisting, then nothing at all will happen. That's the claim of most atheists here in R & S, but they refuse to PROVE that they really believe it! They don't really believe what they claim! If YOU believe what you claim to believe, then PROVE it and take His challenge - IF . YOU . DARE !
For anyone who flat out rejects this test, I have to remind them of some other words Jesus said. Jesus said that the reason people reject God is “because they are evil (their deeds are evil), and they love darkness (i.e. they love their sins and immorality), and they hate the light (i.e. they hate Truth)!” I can only conclude that they are in an ever increasing line of hypocrites who talk a good talk, but don't really mean a thing they say, and that the only reason they don't believe in God is because they don't WANT to believe in God, and for no other reason; and their theme song is "Don't confuse me with Truth; my mind's already made up!"
In his famous book “Mere Christianity”, C. S. Lewis makes the following observation: "A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic - on the level with a man who says he is a poached egg - or he would be the devil of hell. You must take your choice. Either this was, and is, the Son of God, or else a mad man or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us."
