Religious philosophy look at why religions exist and why humans created them.

Christians in early times created religious philosophy in order to better understand other religions so that they would be better able to convert those practioners to Christianity.

When studying religious philosophy one must be careful not to compare and contrast to your own religion but to step outside of yourself and look at it in an almost scientific way.

Reread and new thoughts:

Religious Philosophy is the study of why religions exist and why they are different from each other. Originally, RP was created by Christians in order to understand the faiths of other cultures so that they could more easily convert them. When studying RP we must be ever vigilant to not let our own bias cloud our vision of other religions. We should strive to ask why are they different instead of why don’t they agree with what I believe. Approaching RP in a scientific manner will help us to have a better understanding, as well as a more accurate one.
