Trans-parere, there are 6 and half billion people on this earth and there are 10,000 distinct religions. Probably, 5 and half billion people are involved in these different religions. Have they chosen their religion because of intuition? If intuition is the correct and approved method of choosing the right religion, why so many religions? So is GOD pleased that 5 and half billion people are acting on their intuition and are involved in thousands of different religions? Would you not think, that the "GOD" of this universe, would prefer one religion, based on the Holy Bible containing His instructions?

Religion is a set of beliefs and practices, organized around a "GOD" that people believe in. Their belief is often codified by prayer, ritual, and religious law. So what is the difference in discussing "religion" and "GOD"? Since religion is obedience to GOD, what "pray" tell then, is the significance of talking about GOD and talking about religion? You've stated that I'm no different than some of the others posting to this site, pushing your culture of religion, and especially holding it as the only "true" religion. An interesting concept, since I've never mentioned my religion, and, I've never said, that my religion is the only correct one. And if I never revealed my religion, how is that I'm pushing it? The one notable aspect of your articles, is that you make many assumptions, that your assumptions are absolutely correct, and that you and Mansoor are they only two on this earth who know everything.

You state that what we need "is more people adhering to the voice of God that resides with in them". According to the Bible, Satan is the God of this world, so how do you know which God is residing in you?
