a world religion will consider the similarities between Christianity and other world religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Mormonism, Islam, Baha’i, Judaism, or Taoism. It will seek to answer the question of whether the similarities are significant or not. It will include a biography of the person who started the religion, an overview of their teachings, how those teachings are similar to and different from Christianity, and an explanation of whether the similarities and differences affect whether both religions could be true.
