Bobby Conway: Dr. Craig, what’s the difference between religious pluralism and religious particularism?

Dr. Craig: Religious particularism holds that one particular religion is fully true. There may be elements of truth in other religions, but only one religion is fully true, and there is only one way to God. By contrast, religious pluralism says that there’s a diversity of different perspectives on religion, and that these are equally valid, and no one religion can claim to be the way to God or to be exclusively true.
