Do we all worship the same God?
More and more, it's become in vogue to believe that the various religions of the world all believe in the same god. Many a Christian has explained that Jews, Muslims and Christians worship the same god because Abraham plays a roll in all three religions.
Admittedly, it's very tempting to believe that all people, regardless of their religion, will get to go to heaven. It's not a delightful thought to consider that a lot of people are going to end up in hell. Moreover, it's quite offensive to people of other religions to believe that they're wrong and will go to hell when they die. We don't want to offend anyone!
