Regarding multiplicity of religions: (all this assumes that God is the source of morality, but as far as I know most religions believe that anyway)

If you believe the morals you follow are the true ones as established by God, do you think that those outside of your faith (who prescribe to different moral systems) are immoral and therefore bad people, and will be punished by God in the next life? If this is the case you should also believe that they rightly deserve this, because to think otherwise would be to doubt God! (However, you might instead think that they are merely misled, and it is your duty to God to take them into your faith)

If not, then it must follow that you think God actually has varying standards of morality he applies to different religions, i.e. he is harsh on followers of some religions, and laxer with others. Does this mean he favours some beliefs about him more than others?
And would not the criteria for his favouring and disfavouring be the truthfulness of these religions (for example, he would be more pleased by those who worship him the "proper" way), as in how accurate they are to the true nature of God?
If this is the case then surely religions with the laxest rules of morality would be the most "correct"

Thoughts?

And please no inane atheist trolling along the lines of "God doesn't exist lol"

You're much more likely to get better responses if you post this in the religion subforum instead of chat
