This post Religious Pluralist from a friend of a friend made me think. I'm interested to know what you think of it.

Growing up in a traditional Christian church, it is hard for me to say all religions are really looking for one God. But...I agree with a lot of what Rob said, and have felt this way for a long time.

It's difficult for me to wrap my brain around the idea as well, but I did like this quote
“ … no religion is completely true and there is an infinite reality, or God, that is beyond the ability of any single religion to capture with total accuracy. Instead, all religions make an attempt at capturing this reality, but this always occurs within a cultural and historical context that affects the viewpoints of the faith’s holders.”
I don't think the answer is as simple as believing that all religions serve or seek the same God, but I think that questioning the viewpoints of our faith and admiting that God is far bigger than we can imagine is a step in the right direction. I personally have always been awed and confused by the similarity of so many religions.
