Most Christians, the Blood-bought, born-again, true believers don't just *think* the "religion" they follow is best. We *know* that our "way of life - a personal relation with God's Only Begotten Son" is the *only* way! It's true that there is only "One Way" and His Name is Jesus! As others have pointed out, many of us have examined and studied other religions and they have not measured up, once we came to the acceptance of Jesus as Lord and Savior! Personally, I was more or less brought up in a nominal congregation of the Christian "religion" and went so far away from the Lord God that I called myself an "Agnostic". (I didn't have enough *faith* to call myself an "Atheist"!) I was saved and sprinkle-baptised at age 25, baptised in the Holy Spirit by Jesus in the early 1970s, in my early 30s and baptised by total immersion in the late 1970s, in my late 30s. My faith since then has occasionally been bent, but never broken!
Hey,"Phantom's Angel": At least we know there's one less bigot and hypocrite in the Church!
Hey, "Vicki O": In Second Corinthians 5:8, Paul says, "To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord"! Your confusion must stem from the fact that we leave our bodies behind, but that our spirits go immediately to be with the Lord. Jesus *does* come for our spirits at the instant of our physical death; but our bodies will not be resurrected until the "rapture" or "catching away"!
