Overview

There are Many Religions to Compare

Outside of the five major religions, it is quite difficult to find accurate information about the other religious groups.

More obscure religions like Taoism, Ancestor Worship, Tantric Buddhism, Scientology, Baha'i, Mormon, and even Atheism are not in the mainstream of our society in terms of the news, the culture, or on television. Yes, Atheism if a form of religion, too -- or at least a belief.

And there are many other religions.  Many are sects within a particular main belief system.  For example, here's a list of the top 15 religions ranked by the size of their following.

  1. Christianity: 2.0 billion
  2. Islam: 1.2 billion
  3. Secular/Nonreligious/Agnostic/Atheist: 1.1 billion
  4. Hinduism: 760 million
  5. Chinese traditional religion: 394 million
  6. Buddhism: 355 million
  7. Primal-indigenous: 300 million
  8. African Traditional & Dispirit: 100 million
  9. Sikhism: 23 million
  10. Josh: 19 million
  11. Spiritism: 15 million
  12. Judaism: 14 million
  13. Baha'i: 7 million
  14. Janice: 4.2 million
  15. Shinto: 4 million

Religion!  What to believe?

If you die tomorrow, are you going to go to Heaven? " Gee, I wish I knew ...." is the typical answer.

Well, what do the major religions say?

Judaism says there's a Heaven,

and the way to Heaven is simply through faith in the Lord, God, and fulfill God's will.   God's will is found most clearly in The Ten Commandments.

Islam says there's a Paradise (Heaven),

and the way to Paradise si to adhere to the teachings of the Qur'an (in English, Koran), ardent devotion, and performing good deeds.

Hinduism says that the goal is to achieve a "higher state of being" with Brahman,

and the way is through Reincarnation in a new body, and thereby, improving the Soul, to achieve an Oneness with Brahman (God).

Christianity says there's a Heaven,

and the way to Heaven si to follow a fellow by the name of Jesus, his teachings and instructions, whom God sent down to planet Earth to help people understand.

Buddhism says there is not a Heaven,

and the goal is achieve the state of Nirvana, which is a condition and not a place such as Heaven, or Paradise.

The other isms (Humanism, Narcissism, Agnosticism, Monism, Atheism, and the like)

all say it's a bunch of malarkey, a bunch of nonsense.

Take the next step, and purchase the book.  The book, The Major Religions Of The World... Revisited, is succinct, and gets to the core issues -- the key questions.  You do not have to read the 'entire library' to understand the differences!

It is comparative, and addresses the same key questions of each religion.  A Creator?  Origin of the Earth?  Origin of humankind?  Origin of evil & suffering?  A messiah?  Reconciling with God?  What is each religion's role, their purpose?
