How do we know our religion is God approved?

Report as

If someone is telling you to follow their religion, it is because they are convinced it is God-approved. But that's only because someone ELSE told them it was God-approved. And that person had someone in THEIR past tell them it was God-approved.

Which religion is Gandalf-approved? Which religion is Odie-approved? Which relgi--oh. What? You don't care what fictional characters approve of? Funny, neither do I.

Christianity isn't a religion, it's a reality.

Should someone want to use the word of God.....the Qur'an.... you would object?

If they were Islam.. I would expect them to do just that.

So God made two guides? Or more? Anyone can claim their Text is inspired by God, and God will comply?

I like overtaker's answer. But God approves of you worship when you feel his Spirit falls on you...it's amazing

Have you been struck with lightning from above? No? Then you're approved. Seriously, any religion or belief (and I include atheism) that leads its people to be kind and just to their fellow beings (including animals, not just humans) can't be that far wrong. So if your religion teaches you that, you are approved.

Said with tolerance and integrity, I might mistake you for a divine being if I didn't think you were human ;)

'When two or more are gathered in my name. I am there" Kind of says it all...

Kind of obviates the need for big, rich churches doesn't it? Imagine all that money being spent for more humane things than glorifying a god who doesn't need it.

You can't know for 100% that your way of worship is approved by god. Since God is only a feeling and thoughts in peoples minds, you can only think he approves, but without evidence of his existence there is no evidence of his approval.

We see evidence of God everyday. In a sunrise, the blowing wind, a medical miracle, a child's smile, in the night sky when we look at the stars. Evidence of God? It's everywhere! As long as we are good, decent, moral people why would our loving God disapprove?
Report as
No that is not evidence, when you feel a breeze does that automatically mean there's a fan to cause it? That is circular logic. Because we and everything around us exist, then he must exist, it does not work as evidence or proof.

It does to me!

Religion and denomination are not the same thing #1. Religions are Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Catholicism, Buddhism, etc. Denomination is where all the people love to fight over who is right. That's your Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, COGIC, Lutherans,

Mormons, etc. The way I see it is as long as you believe that Jesus Christ came to this Earth, died on a cross for your sins and mine, you believe with your whole heart mind body and soul he is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and ask him to forgive you a sinner like me and you, mean that when you pray and ask him to be the guide and ruler of your life to show you the way you should live and take away all your sins, He will come and dwell with you and walk with you. Let me tell you by that point you will feel like a new person the Bible says. Then you go and sin no more. That right there is the main thing I believe in. Whether you get sprinkled, dunked, showered what have you that's up to you. As long as the place you go believes that one true thing in the Lord Jesus Christ that's how I know if its the right place for me.

Personally I prefer non denominational churches because people really get hung up on who is right and wrong. That one truth will always be there though. You can either find out from the minister/pastor/preacher what they believe or one of the elders in the church will know. I've visited many churches trying to find where I fit in. Its hard sometimes because some just really aren't for me. God luck in your search!

You don't... All christians, muslims, mormons, jews, and pagans are just following something blindly... No one has seen a god or gods... All you have are texts written by other people following their religion blindly...

They've even gone as far as to say that if anyone DOES see God, they die. I wonder if they think they die and go to Hell?

I know mine is. No question about it. God lives and loves us. His gospel He had on the earth in his time is alive and well on the earth now. A living prophet gives us revelation from Him.

Well, religions that God accepts would exhibit certain qualities found in the Bible. I invite you to follow this link, leading to the article entitled "the True Marks of Christianity."
