    Can someone tell me plainly if their religion is the actual correct one:confused:? You see, I’m trying to figure it out, but I’m just about burnt out investigating. thanks!
    This thread is intended to be an exercise in futility :) as there is no way of knowing who is right. My family has a tradition of dying Christian so that’s what I’ve decided to do, and not worry about if we are right or not.

    The goal isn't what it right for Me, or any other.

    What is right and True for you? Make that work, and be good.

    Judaism really, really resonated with me. I had undying faith in HaShem.

    My test is, if you thought you are about to die, which God would you cry to?

    I’ve called out to God the father when I was in danger once. Interesting test.

    It's similar to the test of 'which is your language?',

    1. Which God do you dream of?
    2. Which God would you swear by?
    3. Which God would you call out to in death/bad circumstance?

    Don't use intellect; use raw feeling.

    Going with the gut feeling. That’s something I wasn’t ready to do. Entrust my eternity to my feelings? A wild idea, but it is proper.

    If you were in an aeroplane about to crash into the ocean intellect would play no part; whichever God you'd be screaming and praying to - that's your God :)

    I’ve heavily considered syncretism, and identified as such for a while. surface level of research of Omnism seems to reveal it is syncretic. You opened up a new rabbit hole for me, thanks! It is something I’m looking into now :0

    Baha'u'llah offers it takes effort and there is this Hidden Word.

    "The mystic and wondrous Bride, hidden ere this beneath the veiling of utterance, hath now, by the grace of God and His divine favor, been made manifest even as the resplendent light shed by the beauty of the Beloved. I bear witness, O friends! that the favor is complete, the argument fulfilled, the proof manifest and the evidence established. Let it now be seen what your endeavors in the path of detachment will reveal. In this wise hath the divine favor been fully vouchsafed unto you and unto them that are in heaven and on earth. All praise to God, the Lord of all Worlds."

    (Baha'u'llah: The Hidden Words, Persian #82)

    All the best, when one decides, know that is when the testing really starts :D ;)

    Regards Tony

    All "rivers" lead to the "sea". Pick the most attractive one.

    I can reach the roof of a skyscraper in an elevator, a stairwell, or a helicopter. Which one is the correct path to the roof?

    If no religion can be shown to be correct then they are all in the wrong, at least to some degree. Thus, the logical position would be to abandon all belief in God(s) or any organized religion. That would provide a reasonable answer to your problem. All the rest is just grasping at straw, making appeals to tradition or even more ridiculous appeals to familiarity like the one proposed by @Rival ; if you call out to your mother while the plain goes down or repeat "oh ****!", does that mean she's your goddess or that you revere excrements?

    Of course I revere excrement. Otherwise why would I go around yelling "Oh ****?"

    Can't think of any other reason why one hollers about poop...
