Why are there so many religions in the world? I'd like to find out about God, but I don't know where to start looking. Do all religions lead to God?
No, they do not all lead to God, and if you studied them carefully, you’d soon realize why. Not only do the world’s many religions differ greatly from each other, but they often contradict each other and urge us to follow paths that are diametrically opposed to each other.
I’m thankful you want to find out about God, and I firmly believe God has put that desire within you. Don’t suppress it or let it lead you astray, but instead reach out and ask God to show Himself to you, and He will. God wants you to know Him far more than you want to know Him! Jesus’ promise is for you: “I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you” (Luke 11:9).
Where will you find God? By looking at Jesus Christ, because He alone was God in human flesh. In other words, we don’t have to search for God because He has already searched for us! He did this by coming down from heaven and taking upon Himself our human nature (although without sin). Only Jesus could say, “I and the Father are one” (John 10:30).
I invite you to look at Jesus as He is presented in the Gospels of the New Testament. When you do, you’ll discover not only who He is, but also that He wants to come into your life and make you part of His family forever. Open your heart and life to Christ today. Your life will never be the same.
