A few weeks ago, I was flipping the channels trying to find something to watch. And I stopped on a program that I don't normally watch, called America's Got Talent.

In fact, all of the world's major faith traditions are monotheistic faiths, including Hinduism, which is thousands of years older than Christianity.
