I said could. Of course their are Christians in India and the middle east just like there are Muslims and Buddhist in the U.S. It's more likely that you would be of another religion had you been born and raised in one of these cultures. As much as you can quote the Bible one can find quotes in other religious texts to back up their own beliefs. Nothing you say makes you any more right or wrong than many others of differing faiths. Its your choice to believe what you do. Perhaps its the road God has given you but many roads will often lead to the same place.
I agree that if I was born in the middle east I probably would have been raised Muslim, but if elected of God I would have become a Christian. I remember talking to a man online (in the middle east) that was raised in a Muslim home, and he felt a very strong compelling force that drew him to Christ, so I spoke with him and he confessed that he believed Jesus to be the Christ and was filled with unspeakable joy. It was so contrary to all he was taught, but he couldn't resist this inner drawing to Christ, which was to him something amazing. I think he feared what his family would think and how they'd act, but he had to follow the God who was drawing him.
To address the bold, I do not believe all roads lead to the same place. No Christ, no life. That's God's way, not man's.
Any belief system even a lack of one can be made to sound ridiculous so we just pick whatever works best for us and roll with it. I think that is truly God's, The Gods or the Universe's gift of freewill.
You know that picture about Christianity above is silly. We know those things in scripture are symbolic. God told man not to sin, Lucifer (who was compared to a serpent) tempted them, and they sinned. And of course, the knowledge of good and evil was compared to a tree, not a real fruit tree as we know one. Then God puts His spirit within flesh and that being lives sinless and in love dies for mankind, doing for them what they could not do for themselves. The Christian beliefs make good sense to the mind, provided one actually reads the Bible. But will someone believe in a God who works supernaturally? Some will, some won't.
But yeah, you have two choices. Either believe mindless matter just magically came into being and mindlessly worked upon itself to create a complex world of life and balance, or an Intelligent Being designed it and put the complex universe into motion. Creation itself speaks in favor of Intelligent Design, so as a logical human being I will hold to that.
