Christians' beliefs about other religions:

Followers of many, perhaps most, faith traditions believe that theirs is the only "true" religion -- the only completely valid faith. They have one of three main beliefs about other religions:

bulletExclusivism: other faiths are in grave error and often viewed as opponents.
bulletInclusivism: other faiths have some truth in them, but are only partly developed.
bulletPluralism: all faiths are legitimate, valid, and true -- when viewed from within their particular culture.
