Comparative Religions study what people have believed, not why. The assumption is that all religions are the same, and invented by the people themselves. Therefore, whatever “god,” system of “worship” and “rules of living” people observe are simply human expressions from an inner desire. Whether taught as a university course or a television special, it is a willful blindness to actual facts. At the burning bush, Moses said Israelites will ask the name of who sent you, “And God said to Moses, ‘I AM WHO I AM.’ And He said, ‘Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you'” (Exodus 3:13-14 NKJV). The word “LORD” (all capital letters) in Exodus 3:15 represents “I AM,” and was the name of the Israelite God. Jesus quotes this passage as absolutely true! Comp. courses make Jesus a liar!
