Again, let's not confuse "church" and "religion." And let's not assume that any one religion has The Word (bear with me, Bobert!).

For instance: Let your conduct be marked by right action, including study and teaching of the scripture; by truthfulness, in word, deed, and thought; by self-denial and the practice of austerity; by poise and self-control; the performand of the everyday duties of life with a cheerful heart and an unattached mind. How does this, which is from the Upanishads, differ so much from Proverbs 16?

Does Leave all things behind and come to me for thy salvation. I will make thee free from the bondage of sins. Fear no more. differ greatly from Luke 9:57-62? The quote I give is from the Bhagavad Gita, 18:66.

Are the enjoinments in the Qu'ran, Sutra 7:28-36 so different from the teaching of Christianity? Childrem of Adam, dress well when you attend your mosques. Eat and drink, but avoid excess. He does not love the intemperate.

Some things seem common to all of humanity....
