Religions can be compared and analyzed from a number of standpoints. Perhaps the most interesting approach is to compare them along a Love/Hate spectrum.
Some religions offer a culture of hatred and death. Worshippers seek out and revel in death and dead things. Physical and personal violence. Murder. Warfare and terror. All in the name of religion. But even if these religions try to offer some hope for the next life, they offer no purpose for this life. (Read about Satanism. Read quotes from the Islamic book, the Koran.)
Immoral religions.... hmmm....
Some religions offer elitism. Exalting some over others because of educational differences. Giving power to some because of socioeconomic differences. These religions usually result in oppression, to varying degrees, of everybody else in the religion. (Read about Catholicism. Read about Protestant denominations.)
hope for the future (Read about Judaism.)
Purpose now and hope for the future
that they may have life and have it more abundantly (Read more about Christianity.)
Read how the religion of Jesus has been hijacked. (Other page) The religion of Jesus has been hijacked by various groups. Historically, and recently as well, some people have used the cover and pretense of Jesus' religion for their own means. Wars were fought in the name of Jesus, although he said, "My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now my kingdom is not from here." John 18:36
