there is the russian saying (at least my mother said it was a russian proverb, but the russians say it is a proverb of sb else further east) – the crow calls her little crow chick the whitest, the mother-hedgehog calls her pup hedgehog the softest.
and is it not the same with religions? nobody follows a totalitarian, exploiting, mind-numbing religion that turns its adherents into zombies. everybody’s religion brings light, peace and freedom to the world. even those that do practice making zombies, make zombies for a good cause. every religion poses itself as the good religion, otherwise it cannot sustain itself.
all that said about religions, there is this:
a person to be friends with, a person to build relationship with.
a god. the god who got so personal that he decided to die for those he loved. it does not get more personal than this.
a god who personally decided to save the world.
when one has a relationship with christ, one can manage religions.
