Defining religion

(This is an article I published in Associated content 8 months back and I thought I would share it with you)

U said all religion are like rivers flowing towards common ocean..if u mean god as common ocean...then y it have these many paths.... y this paths are with this much varience,some say if u accept Allah and last prophet n all prophet before and do good deeds u will be heaven...some say if u beleive jesus as son of god,n as he came to shoulder all sins the people do here after, u will be in heaven...n some says if u do good deeds u will be in heaven...which is correct...dont u smell some thing wrong in having this much varience of thoughts.dont u smell some thing went wrong in making of religions and lastly converging all this religion to one does create only new religion wll never solve the prblm stmt " meaning of life "
