Firts of all, i am a beleiver in Jesus as a wise man, I respect Moses, Abraham, Muhhamad, etc., i feel like these people are my prophets as well. I read the Koran and the Bible, the Bgavagita, ancient Egyptain mystery texts etc., on and on. I undertsand the cultural relevance in dealing with other faiths i have respect for ohter cultures and how they view life. I'm not dissing anyones personal ideas but the idea of an institution influencing ones thooughts or better yet them upon others. I think we should become wary when the institution become more important than the goal of enlightenment.
