Comparing religions... What's The Difference?

Posted by Elaine December 29, 2018 at 12:00 AM AEDT

The business of comparative religions is really the business of contrast. There is little to dovetail.
Take, for example, the founders of Islam and Buddhism. They professed to be no more than channels. Mohammed talked of his visions. Buddha talked of his enlightenment.

Jesus did neither. He never claimed to be a prophet. He said He was what they all prophesied about.

Christian truth is not a series of statements, or a code of ethics, or a program of religious observances. Jesus is the truth. Christianity is Christ.

There is no need to attack any other religion. There is no need to attack anybody’s way of life either in the west or east or north or south. All we need to do is simply to let them see for themselves what Jesus really is.

As the Bible puts it, Oh, put God to the test and see how kind he is!
See for yourself the way his mercies shower down on all who trust in him. Psalm 34:8

Jesus always wins the day.
People can say nothing against Him.
Nobody else saves and heals, expels devils and fills people with joy. Only Jesus!


We can never work our way to heaven, no matter what we do we will never measure up.

We know full well that we don’t receive God’s perfect righteousness as a reward for keeping the law, but by the faith of Jesus, the Messiah! His faithfulness, not ours, has saved us, and we have received God’s perfect righteousness. Now we know that God accepts no one by the keeping of religious laws! Galatians 2:16 The Passion Translation

The pioneer of every earth born religion is dead.
Only Jesus is alive to give life to those who believes in him.

And this is what He says:

Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord?
Who may stand in his holy place?
The one who has clean hands and a pure heart,
Who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god.
They will receive blessing from the Lord and vindication from God their Saviour. Psalm 24:3-5

May you find peace in Christ!
