Basic description and example for each, please. I expect there may be some confusion as to what qualities match which category.

None of the above. God inspired the Bible, which Jesus stated is correct. Furthermore, it is about a personal relationship, not a religion. It is a relationship with the Father, through the Son. Those who harden their hearts against God, receive the same in return. God hardens their hearts even more, just as he did Pharaoh. It costs them dearly, just as it did Pharaoh. He lost his first born son. Records show that the family line was broken at that time. It skips. I believe there is also a giant monolith that was created in honor of Pharaoh's deceased son. If I remember correctly, it has his name on it.

Yeah...about that...killing children is just bad. It's never okay to murder a whole generation of first borns to send a message.

Actually TC that’s a bit subjective
I believe that children are children in the womb and millions die every year
Outside of that, children are Gods creation, nothing obstructs children from a relationship with God. A living child suffers, a dead child is immediately with their true and loving father, forever, both in peace and rest

Anyway
Going with J
Jesus ended the religion

That supports my statement. What part dont you understand. Things like divorce. Jesus fielded that question impeccably.

There are things discussed innscripture we didnt even know until the 29th century, the stars of Orion being bound together. Same with Pleiades the 7 sisters.

How about the springs that flow like rivers on the bottom of the ocean. We didnt know that. How many thousand years ago did God discuss that?

You dont know your Bible, do you? Look back at old science text books. They have to change them all the time, because of all the stupid errors. The Bible remains the same, unerring.

B. Good inspired relationship based on God's love for humanity shown though his sacrifice that we may be saved from our sins through our faith in him alone which should be evident in our lives.

That was divine retribution, from a just God. The Pharaoh of Egypt previously ordered the murder of every firstborn male of the Hebrew slaves. But unlike their murders God gave Pharaoh a warning about the judgment and a way to avert it. Pharaoh didn’t accept the terms.

My religion and it is an insult to call it a religion because it is a BELIEF while calling it a religion is a way of putting my belief into a basket with a bunch of hocus pocus and false beliefs is called Christianity, you may have heard of it the religion which gave our society it's foundation, it's morals even though we live today in an increasingly immoral society ruled over by increasingly immoral leaders and becoming ever more dominated by immoral beliefs of others including those aforementioned false religions.

It is important because it is the religion which taught tolerance even though at times the truth of it's teachings was hidden by those that wanted to abuse it for power.

It is the religion that taught forgiveness not KARMA like some eastern religions do but forgiveness and redemption that even the worst could become the best if they turned around and walked the right path.

It explained that without guidance and forgiveness society's are ultimately doomed, that caring about the poor and downtrodden is a duty, that looking after the elderly and the disabled is also a duty and not merely boon's that get rewarded, that eternity is there for everyone if they just grasp the hand that is offered and follow and not because they do this or that work, if they grasp that hand the work's will follow and there salvation is not because of work's but because of forgiveness and a price born of love paid for them on there behalf so in that regard KARMA can be argued but one more perfect and pure took it for those more imperfect and impure to save them.

So Man or God, well actually both but INSPIRED as in DIVINE INSPIRATION from God and not just any God but the very God that made it all in the first place is the way I would state it, we do not believe we are perfect, we are saved however by one that is.

So our religion if you want to put it into that basket teaches humility, self sacrifice and honesty but above all those are now why or how we are saved but by the one whom came to take our place for us and paid our debt that we may be saved.
