Similarities between ATR and all other false religions.
ATR has many gods like Hinduism or the spiritism of South America. (Some sources do claim that ATR reveres one god at the top of all the other gods. However, all the sources agree that ATR promotes the fear of many spirits with god-like powers. Contrast that with the Christian duty to fear only Jehovah. Luke 12:4-5; Proverbs 1:7)
Like all other religions, ATR attempts to take into account the broad scope of everything in the world. Unfortunately, the theological structure of ATR can only stutter out a unity based on mutable, fickle spirits for treating birth, growth, life with others, work, and death.
