JS> I have no master but my God in whom I trust He is my lord and savior!

Oh...  Sorry!

LS> ...And your particular 'way' is the only CORRECT one. Yes?

Far from true...I could be in the absolute correct faith, church or group
of
believers and still make wrong choices... say wrong things or hurt others...

Would I make that truth less truth?   In a way yes, and a way no...  I am
sure
that God alone is Good!  I make him no less God, but I am still human.

JS> I actually feel sorry for most people who learn of these other

I believe Jesus is the way truth and life... I had for many year sought
for
the truth in Buddism,  Jehovah's witnesses,  palm reading, and tarot cards...
None of them gave me spiritual life.

I am incapable of converting anyone...  I simply say I am a christian...If
others
come to me and ask why...I can tell them my story of what I went through
and how
Jesus set me free...others come to mock and degrade God, but I see an intense
desire to know God that has been foiled by much error.

JS> the demons that you deny as well will use these issues to make coming

LS>
LS> Is that GOD or "Gods"?

What ever one needs to believe... I believe he is One God.

... Go straight to the docs.  Do not pass GO.  Do not collect $200!
