It is possible to observe clearly a necessity and desire to peace, agreement and tolerance among the world nations in all areas in the contemporary century. As a result of re-examination of the religious texts and their interpretations in this respect, we witness a progress from a clashing ideological view to a perception line which is a recognition of each other, and reconciliation. In this respect, the religions have been categorized into three areas: exclusivism regarding other as being out of The Truth, and considering it in his monopoly; inclusivism regarding the other heavenly religions that may explain The Truth, but they can achieve it by accepting its colour; and pluralism regarding all religions as having equal value. In this article, we study the third of them, which is the problem of religious pluralism and its bases and limits in the sacred texts.
