    1. John Smith wrote a book, based on an experience he allegedly had in the wilderness which became the foundation of the Mormon Empire.

    2, The way of Budda, who was originally Siddhartha Gau·ta·ma (gôt-m, gou-) 563?-483? b.c., was an Indian mystic and founder of Buddhism. He began preaching after achieving supreme enlightenment at the age of 35.

    3. The way of Muslims is the result of Abū al-Qāsim Muhammad (c. 570 – c. 8 June 632) was a religious, political, and military leader from Mecca who unified Arabia into a single religious polity under Islam.

    4. The Jehovah Witnesses emerged from the Bible Student movement, founded in the late 1870s by Charles Taze Russell.

    5. Hinduism is formed of diverse traditions and has no single founder. Among its direct roots is the historical Vedic religion of Iron Age India and, as such, Hinduism is often called the "oldest living religion"or the "oldest living major religion" in the world.

    One orthodox classification of Hindu texts is to divide into Śruti ("revealed") and Smriti ("remembered") texts. These texts discuss theology, philosophy, mythology, rituals and temple building among other topics.

    ...and there are many more belief's out there but accordingly, none of the movers and shakers of the above major Religions ever claimed to be God.

    But Jesus did! Jesus did in-fact proclaim He was the Messiah. On many occasions.

    Makes one wonder why so many desire to follow in the foot steps of others and their man-made theologies.

    People want God their own way. That's why we have such diversity of religion. After 9\11 our churches filled with scared people seeking God's love and protection. As soon as God showed Himself through the scriptures the true churches emptied right back out again. I call it Burger King Theology. "Have it your way". There is something for everyone!

    There are some interesting similarities between how Joseph Smith claimed to receive the messages which he used to write the Book of Mormon and how Muhammed got the messages that comprised the Koran.

    (Both had similar views regarding polygamy too.)
