“Religions are all alike. They all have some good points and can help people to lead worthwhile lives.”

Faith in the Messiah is not a religion: it is God’s declared way for humankind to be reconciled to Him. While there are many good points to commend in some religions, this does not mean that God is satisfied with everything in “religion.”

What is important is not what people decide about God, but rather what God decides about us. We must approach God according to His standards. It is not up to us to devise our own way of approaching Him. Since He has given us a way to have our sins forgiven, it is our privilege to accept His grace.
