Think of the truth as a huge jigsaw puzzle with the pieces scattered. Each various religion holds some of the pieces to that puzzle..
They form ideas about what the full puzzle would look like based on their own little section they assembled. When their idea of the big picture clashes with another religions own section of the puzzle, disagreements, misunderstandings, and sometimes war result.
I don't have all the pieces to the puzzle, but I am trying to gather all these nuggets of truth from all different faiths and religions to create my own personal religion. It works for me so far, and I haven't wanted to yell at anyone for seeing another part of the picture for a while.
