“In every generation, there are always a few who understand; Always understand… even if you remain among the few” RMK There are many obstacles one must overcome when searching for validity and reliability in the traditional religions of our world. For instance, since Judaism claims that God created the world in six days, and that He did so some 5,770 years ago, this seeming incompatibility with the scientifically accepted age of the universe (estimated to be approximately 15 billion years) can create enough doubts that most reasonable people would have a hard time accepting the Biblical concept of God. Christianity claims that Jesus fulfilled some of the Hebrew messianic prophecies and that other promises will come to be with a second coming. Islam contends that God’s Bible, although holy, needed reforms and amendments, and thanks to Muhammad we can finally understand His ways. In our journey we will examine Judaism, Christianity, and Islam in more detail. We will look at Buddhism and atheism and try to understand why many have chosen to seek other alternatives to mainstream religion. Many people fear the possibility that all they know to be true might be a farce, and organized religion has made it hard for true seekers of spirituality to feel secure about any particular belief system; thus the increasing number of agnostics, free-thinkers, atheists and people who have desisted for the most part, from their search for The Answer. Your quest for knowledge and truth begins now. Does religion really matter? Here is The Answer.
