Which is the Correct Religion?

by Stewart Bitkoff

Age Group: Adult



Q: In our tradition, we are taught those who do not believe the same as us are incorrect, and unless they change shall be punished by God. Also, as responsible believers, we have a duty to try and correct their view?

Does the Father love only some of his children? Are not all children of God?
Before there was organized religion, how did travelers worship? Were these millions all in error and abandoned by their Father?
To every place and time is a path or religion. Look to a traveler's heart and their action; a good, loving person, who makes the world a better place, is a servant of God and has a religion to follow. Let God evaluate the measure of their lives; Godís mercy is without end.
* *

The Religions

Traveler: There is One God, yet, there are many religions: why is this so?

Master: Each traveler finds God in a different way. One may seek salvation as a loving husband and father, and another may find Godís Face on a distant shore.
Each traveler is a universe and in this vast expanse it is easy to go astray. Only Godís Kindness leads the traveler home.

Religion may be likened to a great river that feeds the land. The river winds its way as a mighty force and smaller tributaries are formed to serve the distant regions. Some travelers are satisfied to drink of the smaller stream and forget they must travel the river to its Source. Beyond the riverís gate, the Ocean is waiting.

Traveler: Where is the boat to journey the river, for I am ready to depart?

Master: O young one, you are so eager; yet you are already assail and your soul is the vessel. Your heart is the compass and Godís Mercy is the breeze at your back.
If you bow in prayer to God; God will provide all that you need and Guide you to the Ocean.
