This chapter explores “true” claims of each of the faiths in religious narrative. It argues that the truth claims of each of the faiths to bear a revealed message can only be evaluated in terms of their ethical and spiritual fruits. All of them must lead their adherents to lead lives of respect for the dignity of all people, reverence for all forms of life, for the earth itself, and for the divine source of all things. While all these “true” faiths will adhere to shared ethical and spiritual standards, their truth claims must be further examined.
