You're either being trolled, spammed, or stupid-ed. Choose your poison.

Oh, I've already accepted my fate. I'm praying for the grace of the Grammar-Nazi god.

So much emphasis is put on religion that people lose sight on what really matters. Jesus himself denounced the establishment and responded in an animated manner to people part of that establishment.

But, here's what I believe, and I hope it helps.

I don't believe in religion, but I believe in God. I think ALL religions can tell us a lot about God, but none of them are complete, none are correct. There are two things I am absolutely certain of:

God created the Universe
God has allowed mankind salvation despite his sins
I have a personal relationship with God and receive communication from him

The set of rules you follow will, of course, be based on where and with whom you were raised, but the stronger your relationship with God, the more you can see the truth even through the distractions.

Personal testimony, both listening and speaking, is extremely important. Getting lost inside of your own head makes staying on the path to less sin impossible We must talk to each other, tell each other what we believe, justify it, and hold each other accountable to our own beliefs.

But, the most important thing to know about God is to NEVER think you know anything other than the basics. Life is about getting closer to the path of righteousness, but never being able to reach it in this lifetime, to better be able to spot God's messages from those that pretend to be to lure you in.

How do you know that one religion is true? Also, why are you certain that all of them are not false?

Pray and ask God which church is His, when He answers you, you will know with certainty which Church is His.

Yeah, personally that never worked for me, God never got around to answering I guess, but I suppose he's a busy guy.

And this has worked pretty well so far.

The way I see it is, if you are a good person, it doesn't matter what religion you associate yourself with. Most of us will choose the religion of our parents (not all, but a lot anyway), or else that of our spouse. I don't think God cares, as long as you're a good person. Otherwise, we'd probably be seeing more of him here on earth, leading us the right way. But we don't, so I say that if there is a God (which I believe there is), then he doesn't care as much what religion we belong to, as he does how we live our life. So I don't worry too much. I just follow what my heart and head say and try to be a good person everyday :D

What makes you think there is only one?

For that matter, what makes you think there are as many as one?

Here is your answer: God's Church (that holds the true and authorized Priesthood of God) is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Doctrine and Covenants 1:
38 What I the Lord have spoken, I have spoken, and I excuse not myself; and though the heavens and the earth pass away, my word shall not pass away, but shall all be fulfilled, whether by mine own voice or by the voice of my servants, it is the same.

Which Churches actually tell you to ask God? I know that while I was a member of the Catholic church I did not hear that advice EVEN ONE TIME!....why would that be?...could it be that God actually will answer people's prayers (in His time - which would be PERFECT timing ---how else could a perfect God answer a prayer except perfectly?)...but that He would tell them to join some other church?...In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints you practically hear nothing BUT to get your answers confirmed by God (by personal revelation)...and yes it does work great! :)

perhaps it is a path, not a religion?
