The essence of all the religions is one and the same

The essence of all the religions is one and the same since the Universal God gives it. The religions are different from each other because the religious leaders who are the human beings create the material that surrounds the essence. The skeleton is one and the same and there is no difference in the skeletons of the human beings. The difference lies only in the external materials covering the skeletons, which are flesh, skin etc., in these external materials differences arose due to deficiencies. Suppose there are two students. One is weak in physics and the other is weak in chemistry.

Each student mocks the other for the deficiency. Therefore, the deficiency is the root of difference and quarrels in the religions. The reason for the deficiency is the human brain that developed the external body of the spiritual knowledge. Therefore, the spiritual knowledge is the skeleton and the religion is its body. The deficiency in a religion can be removed by taking the merits of the other religions. Every religion has deficiency and the rectification of that deficiency should be from other religion without any ego and jealousy. Do not think that you are without defects. Do not think that your parents have no defects. Do not think that your teachers and preachers do not have defects. Therefore, observe others and take the merits from anybody without prejudice.

The blind thinking that your nation, your state, your district, your town or village, your caste, your family, your parents, etc., is the best or highest should be eradicated from your brain. Always base your self on your analysis and commonsense that is observed from the examples in the world. Your elders might have polluted the scriptures but this world is the best scripture written by God. This world-scripture is Universal without any color of any religion. You can develop the entire spiritual knowledge by observing this world and the scientific knowledge existing in the various examples or items of the world. Any human being cannot pollute these. You must be scientific and analytical in your belief. The ignorant and clever religious elders always exploit blind belief.

I Cor;12; 27-31 NAB New Catholic answer bible
"Now you are Christ’s body, and individually parts of it. some people God has designated in the church to be first, apostles’ second, prophets; third , teachers; then, mighty deeds; then gifts of healing, assistante , administration , and varieties of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work mighty deeds? do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? Strive eagerly for the greatest spiritual gifts.

"As a body is one thoough it has many parts, and all the parts of the body, though many, are one body, so also Christ. For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, slaves or free persons, and we were all given to drink of one Spirit. I Cor 12;12,13 NAB

God is one, that is true. And he wants us to come to him. All humans have grace pulling on them, urging them to ask questions such as: What is the reason for life? Is there a higher power? etc.

Different cultures have sought God in different ways. Due to the fact that we all have God’s laws written on our heart, most religions do have some aspects in common such as the golden rule. That is why it is possible to find truth and beauty in most faiths.

But it would be a mistake to say that all relgions are equally correct.

The fact is that the fullness of the truth can only be found in Christianity and further in Catholicism.

All this is beside the point - for this reason: Jesus Christ.

AFAICS, He is the only solid & lasting & indestructible reason to be Christian, & the only reason to be a Catholic Christian; precisely because there are all sort of things that can be truly & fairly said against the different kinds of Christianity.

All those things you mention can be, not only polluted, but (what is far worse) can become false gods, idols, lies; they can usurp what is owed to God alone; unless He restrains us, they do just that.

Any attempt to put together a religion made from others has to reckon with Jesus Christ - for He makes claims that are exclusive.

*]As we worship the Lord Jesus, no place is left for the lord shiva.
*]As John the Baptist is the final prophet before the Lord Jesus (Whose forerunner he was), no place remains for Muhammad.
*]Because the Lord Jesus Christ is the Incarnate Word of God & Creator of all things both visible & invisible, no place is left for any creation by sexual union between a god & goddess.
*]Because in Jesus Christ we have a full & final revelation of the moral character of God, no place is left for a god who is beyond good & evil.
*]As the Mother of Christ our God was a human being, no place is left for the goddess isis
*]as Jesus Christ truly suffered in a truly human body & nature, & truly died, & was truly raised again from the dead, no place is left for gods who do not truly sweat, or do not truly walk upon the ground as we men do.[/LIST]Take Him away, “in [Whom] are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge”, & Christianity becomes an empty, useless, pointless, worthless shell.

Hi
I agree with your above understanding, this is because all revealed religion received one message from GodAllahYHWH, though due to time lapse the followers of those religions could not keep the message secure and protected.
