I'm quite the student of religion, mythology, and philosophy. I can appreciate where you are coming from, although I don't share the faith you
That said, I think you're suggesting religious pluralism? Otherwise worded as 'comparative religion'.
Problem is that doesn't work. At all…
It's great in a feel good spiritual sense..
But… these religions conflict in their doctrine in fundamental levels. There is no reconciliation save for claiming all holy books were only meant
to be taken metaphorically. Which is obviously not the case. There is direct opposition amongst the claims. I think what you really mean to say, but
shy away from, is that you believe Christianity to be the one true religion and that other religions falsely think they are worshipping those gods but
in truth are worshipping your god the Christian god. Am I wrong? That's not religious pluralism. That's you hiding behind it
That being the case.
