ADDITIONAL STUDIES OF CHRISTIANITY AND ISLAM
If Christians and Muslims want to show their tolerance let them first throw off their exclusivism and accept other paths, including the pagan and Hindu as valid. Let them close down their conversion activities and openly dialogue with other religions to jointly discover what is true. Let them apologize for their history of denigrating other faiths and seeking to convert them with force and propaganda.  Otherwise those of other beliefs cannot trust their claims of tolerance Many good people and even great mystics have lived among Christians and Muslims throughout history. I would certainly not deny this. 

All human beings have access to the Divine and Christians and Muslims are not barred from it. The problem is that their exclusive beliefs and their missionary efforts removes them from the Divine in others and causes them to lose the Divine within themselves as well. It makes them try to denigrate and destroy other traditions that are quite valid in their own right.

All human beings possess a natural faith and intuition in a higher truth and consciousness. The problem is that religions, instead facilitating this, try to manipulate it into a faith in their own dogmas and institutions instead – and an intolerance of other forms that this inner yearning may take among different people and cultures. In this way true religious seeking, which is valid whatever form it takes, becomes distorted and even harmful. It misses its real goal of uniting humanity and becomes a factor of social division and distrust. It suppresses the pursuit of spiritual  and even scientific knowledge that it cannot control.
