Most religions say that theirs is the right way and the rest are wrong is their any religion that says there is not the only way to God or there are many ways.

Check out Buddhism, I believe the Buddha mentioned that if you have read his teachings and did not agree with any or all of them, don't practice them.
I'm not a Buddhist but I think Buddhism is one of the more peaceful and less invasive guides for enlightenment seekers compare to some religions.
Buddha said -- Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
8All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them.
9They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge.
10Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold.
11For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.
