In most places it is. There are some countries run by other religions that don't think so.

This is the first step people should avoid.... Think for yourself and make your own decision. In a very general perspective its not against the law last time I checked!

It's fine to follow any religion, or none. (I'd draw the line at Thuggee though, I think).

What I always find amusing is that all dedicated adherents to any creed or religion, or any sect within that religion will argue forcefully that their opinion and only their opinion is correct.

This means that (even if you believe in a higher power) most people must be wrong, one way or another.

I'm still agnostic.

You may eventually come to understand it to be a perfect choice.

It depends on whose standard you are using to determine what is right or wrong. The bible says at

John 4:23,24 - Nevertheless, the hour is coming, and it is now, when the true worshippers will worship the father with spirit and truth, for indeed, the Father is looking for ones like these to worship him. God is a Spirit, and those worshipping him must worship with spirit and truth."

  1. Jesus said that he taught “the truth,” and early Christians referred to their religion as “the truth.” These expressions show that those who promote doctrines that conflict with Jesus’ teachings are not practicing a true form of Christianity.

  2. The Bible teaches that Christians “should all speak in agreement.” However, many Christian denominations disagree on teachings as basic as what it means to be a Christian. Such denominations cannot all be right.

  3. Jesus prophesied that many would claim to be Christian yet fail to obey his commands and that he would reject such ones. Some people would be misled by religious leaders who corrupt true worship to further their own interests. However, other people would actually prefer imitation Christianity because it would tell them what they want to hear rather than the truth from the Bible.

In his illustration of the wheat and the weeds, Jesus foretold a great rebellion (apostasy) against true Christianity. For a long period of time, true Christians and false Christians would be indistinguishable. Just as Jesus foretold, the apostasy flourished after the apostles died. While apostate teachings may vary, the various forms of imitation Christianity have all “deviated from the truth.”

Jesus also predicted that the distinction between true and false Christianity would eventually become clear. This has happened in our time, during the “conclusion of a system of things.”

Well that isn't entirely correct. It isn't as much "Alright" as it is Half Left . .  ;)

thanked the writer.

"Half Left" is about as accurate as "alright."

“alright” as one word is currently not acceptable English, though it may become so in the future. - See more at: http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/education/grammar/all-right-versus-alright?page=1#sthash.PDU2tm92.dpuf

:) No worries Thomas, just my attempts of a "Pun" based on the sound of the word rather then it's actual intention.
Thanks for keeping me on track my friend.

Sure. I was a Catholic for 21 hours. (They needed somebody to do some fund raising for them and couldn't really use an atheist, so they made me an honorary Catholic for the duration.)
