Religious Truth
 

What is Religious Truth?  "Religion" is an organized system of beliefs and rituals centering on a supernatural being or beings. The section entitled "What is truth?" revealed 5 different definitions of truth. All of those definitions could apply in some way or another to religion, but a few stand out above the others in discussing religious truth.

Truth (trooth) n., pl. truths 1.Conformity to knowledge, fact, actuality, or logic. 2. Fidelity to an original or standard 3. Reality; actuality 4. A statement proven to be or accepted as true. 5. Sincerity; integrity.

The search for truth in religion connects closely with definition #2, "fidelity to an original or standard". We who believe in God do our best to attain to a standard set forth by the "original" creator. Just who the "original" creator is, and how that creator is revealed to its followers, is the subject of much debate amongst the inhabitants of this world. We mention many belief systems and their components in order to not only help you sort through the confusion but also to spot those curious trends, likenesses and coincidences that make such a study so fascinating.  

The most provocative definition of truth that applies to religion is the this one, "conformity to knowledge, fact, actuality or logic." Millions of people have lost their lives debating this one! The disagreement over what constitutes religious fact and knowledge is so convoluted that just the "Baptist" believers of the Christian faith alone are broken up amongst groups who call themselves Baptist, Baptist American, Baptist Conservative, Baptist Independent, Baptist Missionary, Baptist Primitive, Baptist Reformed Baptist Southern and MORE! Not to mention, Methodist, Calvinist, Presbyterian, Lutheran… we'll you get the idea.

 

We offer several pages that discuss those conformity issues, and invite you to sample all of them for your enrichment and viewing pleasure. Just click on the picture below the title of the topic that interests you.

 Most religions rely upon some writing or collections of writings that express their beliefs, behaviors, expectations and punishments. Christians have the Bible; the Muslims have the Koran, the Jews the Tanakh and the Talmud. Along with those just mentioned, the Buddhist and Hindu writings date back many centuries.  Newer religions have sprung up along the way. Mormonism, Hare Krishna, Scientology, Christian Science and Jehovah's Witnesses were all founded in America in the 18th and 19th centuries.
