All Religions are same: –

 All major religions are equally valid and basically teach the same thing.

All human beings should be convinced that whatever their religious beliefs, each religion or faith is just of many equally valid paths to God and ways to live in the world. The doctrinal differences between Judaism, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, and Hinduism are superficial and insignificant, that they all believe in the same God, which is all loving spirit in the universe.

Different doctrines of each religion are also important because each religion sees part of spiritual truth, but none can see the whole truth.

Sometimes this point is illustrated with the story of the blind men and the elephant. Several blind men were walking along and came upon an elephant that allowed them to touch and feel it. “This creature is long and flexible like a snake” said the first blind man, holding the elephant’s trunk. “Not at all – it is thick and round like a tree trunk, “ said the second blind man, feeling the elephant’s leg. “No, it is large and flat,” said the third blind man, touching the elephant’s side. Each blind man could feel only part of the elephant – none could envision the entire elephant. In the same way it is argued, the religions of the world each have a grasp on part of the truth about spiritual reality, but none can see the whole elephant or claim to have a comprehensive vision of the truth. Religious belief is too culturally and historically conditioned to be “Truth”.
