When Jesus comes back and reveals the truth unto everyone. Then every knee will bow down to Christ. Jesus came and died on the cross for your sins so that you could be saved and wouldn't have to go to hell. The Bible says if you confess with your mouth "Jesus is Lord" and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you will be saved. Don't miss your chance to get saved. You need to be forgiven. The Bible says that today is the day for salvation because you never know what tomorrow will bring. Give your heart and life 100% to Jesus and He will change you and reveal things unto you, God bless you!
It was NEVER Jesus's desire to start RELIGIONS. He did not set that example. All He wanted was for men to love the Lord God and love and help his fellow man. We as people went completely off the deep end with rules & regulations.
When the rules of religion are done away with because of life and trust in a relationship. Jesus came to establish relationships with people. It was not his intention to set up stuffy rules and better than you authority amongst men.
Whenever a religion outlives its usefulness and loses its favor with the sword. Every religion, when in power, appeals by burning; and when powerless, appeals by begging. In might, religion (regardless) carries the dagger; and in weakness carries the alms-dish. There is yet another thing. To the exact extant that the civilization of mankind increases, the sharpness of god's swords (that is to say, of priests) decreases.
The hopeful thing, however, about the constant rise of various religions is that every new religion is usually a little less superstitious that the old; so that the religion of science is just a matter of time. Until then, the religions will continue to do the best to hinder the forward march of civilization in every which way, and like giant spiders gods will continue to weave nets to catch the souls of men.

Unfortunately religions don't have a use-by date so they come without warnings that they are no longer valid.
Some have faded to become mythology -- like those of the Greece, Rome, Egypt and the Northlands.
Others, like Zoroastrianism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam linger on while there are still people who believe in them. They remain religions but will in their turn become just another collection of myths as the people who believe in them diminish.
