The widespread use of religions and the existence of billions of believers is a serious phenomenon. The diversity of beliefs already shows that none of these religions can claim the 'one' truth for itself. At best, they are different paths to the 'one' goal. Even about the concept of God there are the most varied of views, and attempts have even been made to come to terms with this concept, which defies all attempts at definition, with logical 'proofs of God'. Nevertheless, there are many similarities between the individual religions: All of them try to give an answer to the ultimate questions of meaning, such as where people come from and where, or after life and death. Many share common moral concepts of good and bad or the value of life. - A psychologically important cornerstone is generally prayer, which implies a personal, but nevertheless difficult to understand contact of man with God. To strengthen faith, so-called 'miracles' play an important role in many religions, but they have to be questioned again and again. - Hardly any religion could have asserted itself without a connection to power; but it is precisely because of this that great damage has repeatedly been caused to mankind. So far, however, theology has not yet found an acceptable answer to the related theodicy problem.
