    I'm not sure "strange" is the term I would use. How about eclectic?

    OK.
    Then if you seek a title for your beliefs, maybe Baha'i would fit, because Bahá'ís accept all Abrahamic religions.

    Easy. Ask Bahá'ís on here. Try @adrian009 or @loverofhumanity

    I can not become a Bahai. Because I do not believe everything they believe in. For example, I believe that God wants people to have different religions. So God has one covenant with Jews, another covenant with Christians, another covenant with the followers of the Baha'i faith.

    I believe God sends holy souls to different cultures to teach us to worship God, and to love one another. I do not believe Bahai is the latest religion from God. I believe only Baha'is are one of the religions of God. The followers of the Baha'i faith believe Baha'i is the latest relgion from God. I disagree with this.

    What's strange? Your beliefs are yours, if you can't choose a specific religion to follow then build your own around your beliefs

    Is that logically possible?
    Baha'is say they believe the Bible and Quran and etc but in reality they do not.

    Yes it is logically possible

    I do not believe the different religions are all literaly true in everything, if I believed this then it is not logical.

    I believe there are some level of truth in the different religions.

    What the religions share of belief:
    the religions believe in one God who is the creator of the universe/universes, prophets or holy souls of God, prayers to God, Heaven/hell, that the most important is to serve God and loving each other

    'Strange' is a strange word. If you had 10 friends who thought the same as you, the 11 of you would feel normal in each other's company. In many senses, we're all strange.

    I don't think that is strange. Many people see the common things in most religions and think as paths lead to the same place etc. There are fundamental differences however which people miss.

    They believe many other scriptures also and say that the teachings have been corrupted. With the Bible there are many places that they deny.

    I don't think it's strange.
    Since you take only parts of the mentioned religions, why not make your own belief system to suit yourself? That is easier than claiming to follow all of them. It is your choice of course :)

    I can say "I believe in the one God of Abraham and God's holy prophets. I believe in God who is behind different religions".

    But what I believe do actually have a label.. What I believe is really a kind of omnism. So i do not have to make up my own belief system

    Omnism is a belief in all religions. There are variations in exactly what omnism means and the extent to which it should be applied. For the most part, omnism does not imply literal acceptance of every single religious claim as true. Rather, omnists generally perceive some level of truth or specific truths in all religious faiths. Omnism would assert that all religions share a common goal and a common ability to achieve those shared ends.

    A omnist believe the belief that no religion is the only truth. but that truth is found in all religions
