Namaste Thomas,If you put all on an equal footing. I do not.
Even if one does, the point is to pick one, and give it your best shot surely?
One will never know unless one 'goes for it' as the saying goes. Sitting on the fence is not an option. It's the good heart that inherits heaven, not the feint-hearted.
Now of course if one is in the black/white, right/wrong, dualistic mode than of course one would think that their religion is the only one and true religion and that everyone else is wrong.
And in regards to pick one, although I have, I just don't know. Since I believe every experience that man has had with G!d has gone through the filter of what man believes, understands and thinks...what man felt suited to write down was swayed by his needing to be right and accepted by his peers...which further distorted the truth. So like the analogy Brian posted regarding the sea....all are true based on that personal and societal belief of the prophet that received....but they are only true for that prophet/viewer....hence it is a combination of which that is true.
So while the select one and run with it has its advantages, running with blinders on to what is going on around you has its disadvantages. So while yes, I chose to choose one, I still know I have much to gain by having an open mind in regards to the others....
as I believe all paths....
