    Not sure, about this quote, since religions have been formed from Buddha, Mohammed, Hubbard…

    Only a Jesus like the one in the gospels can provide assurance of salvation though.

    Hi kristarella,

    Thanks for the comment. I would only argue that what Jesus started was a relationship with the God of the universe and not a man-made religion. The Church is the visible reminder that God’s kingdom is here and is here to stay.
