I have to respectfully disagree that all religions point out the same end through different paths, or that Truth(TM) can be found in all. As an example: Heaven's Gate. While I agree that there are similarities in many religions, that's no guarantee that those similarities are in anyway reflective of The Truth(TM).
As for which religion is Right(TM), my take is that it doesn't matter. Furthermore, it doesn't matter if there's a god. God doesn't pay my rent.

What if there is no "right" or "wrong" religion? Isn't it possible that religion is relative? I mean, couldn't God/The Gods reveal itself/themselves to people in ways tailored to each individual?

None of thme, there is no real religion, all of them exist with a only one purpose. A good way to control the masses.
That's a nice thought because everyone makes it to heaven. That also allows everyone to make up their own right and wrong. Over the generations rules change and truths are eroded away.
What if the other way, what if it does matter. What if there is right and wrong religions and everyone has to make the right choice because your eternity is determined by that decision. I guess everyone better make sure beyond a shadow of a doubt, 100% that they have made the right choice.

Then GOD WOULD let ALL know the right from wrong. It would not have to be found in a book. Even one who has never seen an automobile, etc would know.
