So Many Religions

Mormon, Catholic, Adventist, Christian, Islam, and Hindu.
So many faiths and so many religions from which to choose.
Muhammad, Buddha, Confucius, Gandhi, and Jesus, too.
Are they all about the same or is one just right for me and you.
Each religion claims it is the best way to worship God in Heaven above.
Just do things their way and it will result in blessings and love.
Since these claims contradict each other, they cannot all be true.
Therefore we should carefully select the right religion to pursue.
This subject can be debated until you are blue in the face.
But the final answer must ultimately lead to the Throne of Grace.
The path to that Throne is Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son.
The Christian faith offers God's gift of forgiveness to everyone.
