Objection: "Religions are all alike. They all have some good points and can help people lead worthwhile lives."

Faith in the Messiah is not a religion; it is God's declared way for mankind to be reconciled to Him. While there are many good points to commend in some religions, this does not mean that God is satisfied with everything in "religion."

What is important is not what man decides about God, but rather what God decides about man. We must approach God according to His standards. It is not up to us to devise our own way of approaching Him. Since He has given us a way to have our sins forgiven, then it is our privilege to accept His grace.
