Why are there so many religions in the world?


Why are there so many religions in the world?

  1. Because man was created as an incurably religious being; it's hard-wired into his nature. Even in a fallen world, born in separation from God, he can no more lose his religious nature than he can decide to grow a tail or become a duck-billed platypus.

  2. Because man, having rebelled against God, finds the true religion too God-centred, too humbling to his pride and unsatisfying to his selfish desires. Seeing as he can't serve nothing, he has to devise something else to serve instead. Nothing else works, though, so no one alternative that one group of men settle on will manage to satisfy every other group. Even militant atheists, once analysed, turn out to exhibit all the essential behaviour of religious believers.
