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!

Comparative Religion” studies, or Television programs, teach as if there was no difference in all the “gods,” making no distinction among them. They completely ignore every bit of evidence in the historical book, The Bible, for God. Idol “gods” invented by humans are “vain things” that must be turned from “to the living God, who made the heaven, the earth,. The sea, and all things that are in them” (Acts 14:15 NKJV). How do you profane the God of life by throwing Him into the same “box” with all of the idols, which neither live, move, or have their own being?

Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen” (1 Timothy 1:17 NKJV). Willfully ignoring Bible evidence, is still ignorance.

Comparative Religion” courses, or television programs, treat all religions the same, when they are not! Idolatry is based upon a physical “god” worshiped in a physical place: the Muslims Hajj around the Ka’aba in Mecca; Jews have their “wailing wall” in Jerusalem; Roman Catholics have Peter’s Basilica on Vatican Hill in Vatican City. Christianity, however, follows Jesus’ teaching Who answered the Samaritan woman, and said: “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father’” (John 4:20-21 NKJV). There is NO “holy city” for Christians, so how can that be “compared” to the other religions? “God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands” (Acts 17:24 NKJV).
