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?
