I have a question, which is a subject that I remembered discussing with my high school teacher (theologian also) years ago. Don't remember into what conclusion we ended up. It bothered me also during my younghood and it was one of the reasons I left the church. I thought making thread about it but since there's theologian aboard I might well ask from you. What is the reason given in Christian theology why God created other religions? If we look people who are born into certain religion, isn't it quite "unfair" maybe to expect them turn into christians during their lives?
