The human race is composed of sentient beings that are created in the image and likeness of God. As such, humans have the gift of discernment, which in turn is the foundation of “free-choice.”
Each individual stands before God with their own personal point of view, which no one else but God can ever experience. Time, place and circumstances collect individuals into similar experiences which bond them into particular points of view regarding the Divine in comparison with other cultures.
Even within religions there are diversities of “sects” which share common values and goals.
There have been countless religions since the birth of mankind because humanity is made up of an almost infinitude of perspectives on God.
Not one religion- nor a thousand, could ever encapsulate the totality of the infinite God that is beyond all created perception. Because of this, God manifests Himself to all individual people by making Himself “graspable” (Acts 17;27) via their own cultures and traditions.
God does not change nor His holy expectations (ie. Matthew 19:8); it is our perspectives that change as we experience life-changing realizations that bring us ever-so-closer into conscious intimacy with our Heavenly Father.
The Christian’s ambassadorial “good news” to the world is that the ultimate end of humanity’s search is attested by Christ’s resurrection.
