Be Prepared: "Why Can't All Religions Be True?"

Be Prepared to answer questions about faith: "Why Can't All Religions be true?"
Scripture says "always be prepared" to explain our faith, so let's consider this question:  

"Why can't all religions be true?"

The word "COEXIST," using representations from the major world religions, has become a popular slogan.

If it means different religious people coexisting, it's possible. If it means different religious beliefs coexisting, it's impossible. 

Why? 

Because the major tenants of every faith are in conflict with every other. 

Two plus two cannot equal four, five and six. 

Truth is truth. It's not negotiable. 

Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed, and the plethora of Hindu gods have different explanations for mankind's greatest need. And they explain man's salvation in ways that cannot be combined or unified.

To say every religion is right is the same as saying every religion is wrong.

Jesus is either God, the only Way of salvation as He claimed, or He is a liar and a fraud.  The same is true for the claims of all other religions.

How would you answer this question?

    2. On the comment above 'Jesus is either God, the only Way of salvation as He claimed'. That's incorrect, because the Bible says in John 17:3 says:"This means everlasting life, their coming to know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ."
      So here is talking about 2 people.
      Also
      The True God has a name like every one and thing in the world. It is found in Psalm 83:18 which says:"May people know that you, whose name is Jehovah,You alone are the Most High over all the earth."
      I was shocked when I learned Gods name. And decided to do more research.

      True religion is based on what Jesus taught and that we should practice what he taught. A few examples:
      ��️base our teachings on the Bible. 2Tim.3:16,17
      ��️worship only Jehovah and teach others his name. Ps.83:18; John 17:6
      ��️love one another. John 13:35
      ��️believe that God sent Jesus to save us. John 3:36; Acts 4:12
      ��️do not get involved in politics. John 18:36
      ��️preach that only God’s Kingdom can solve the world’s problems. Mat.24:14; Dan.2:44
