Religion!  What to believe?

If you die tomorrow, are you going to go to Heaven?

"Gee, I wish I knew ...." is the typical answer.

Well, what do the major religions say?

Judaism says there is a Heaven, and the way to Heaven is simply through faith in the Lord, and fulfill God's will.  God's will is found most clearly in The 10 Commandments.

Islam says there is a Paradise (Heaven), and the way to Paradise is to adhere to the teachings of the Koran, ardent devotion, and performing good deeds.

Hinduism says that the goal is to achieve a "higher state of being" with Brahman (God), and the the way is through Reincarnation in a new body, and thereby, improving the Soul, to achieve Oneness with Brahman.

Christianity says there is a Heaven, and the way to Heaven is to follow a fellow by the name of Jesus, his teachings and instructions, whom God sent down to planet Earth to help people understand.

Buddhism says there is not a Heaven, and the goal is achieve the state of Nirvana, which is a condition, and not a place such as Heaven, or Paradise.

The other isms (Humanism, Narcissism, Agnosticism, Monism, Atheism, and the like) all say it's a bunch of malarkey, a bunch of nonsense.

Which is correct?

This book gets to the core issues -- the key questions. You do not have to read the entire library to understand the differences!

It ask the same questions of each religion:

A Creator?  Origin of Earth? Origin of humankind?

Origin of evil and suffering?

A messiah?

About reconciling with God? What is each religion's role, their purpose?
