What is a true religion?

I like to think about religion as something which is given. I do not think that in order to reach salvation and God one needs to know anything. whatever religion or denomination you belong to, everyone has certain moral principles already given. in other words all we need we have when we are born. All we need is the ability to distinguish between good and evil. choice is the answer. Although I am Catholic Christian I do not believe that this is the best religion for everyone. It is important to listen to one’s heart instead of listening to any other human being. Take for example buddhism. I do not think that the philosophy of niravana eg the bigger seclusion from world the better is inherently given within humans. this Buddhistic mantra is opinion, it is learned.what is learned cannot be absolutely good. The question whether Jesus was God or not  is for me a question of logic. If Jesus was perfect ergo God  that means that everything he did was perfect. he died on cross for our sins and accepting Jesus will grant us eternal life. even if someone says that he is not Christian and is a good human for me he is Christian. Nevertheless we do not need to know about Bible in order to know Jesus. His teaching is nothing new. What he says is basically what we already know . it is his acts that are making him God. humans acts are not perfect . we do not need Bible in order to get to heaven. It is sufficient to be good . I even do not need to believe in heaven. I like most the idea of being good even if I don’t believe in eternal life. being good for goodness sake . I like people who are good because they believe it’s good to be good rather than belong to any denomination. Unfortunately the experience of God’s presence don’t is not transferable via words. There came a moment in my life when all of a sudden i was gifted with belief in Jesus. all of a sudden everything made sense and although I knew that many things I used to do the were wrong and bad for me and for others I didn’t refrain from doing them. All of a sudden God give me strength to be a better man and stop doing those things. It all is about choice of either accepting God ,in other words being good or not accepting. In other words being bad
