I'm a little confused on how you can state that you believe there's no correct religion, but then state that you believe in the words of Jesus and that Jesus is the savior. Those ideas seem contradictory to me, since believing in Jesus' divinity means you must also believe in the validity of Christianity at some level (even if you don't take all of the bible to be true). After all, accepting Jesus' divinity puts you at odds with both Judaism and Islam, who at best think Jesus may have been a prophet, but not the son of god.
You sound pretty much text-book Christian to me (some version of protestant), save for the "angels are aliens" bit.
I'm not sure how that's contradictory. I believe Jesus is the savior but I can't prove that, there for another religion could be right on who the savior is. I like Jesus and his teachings therefor I believe in him. Belief is a choice, I'm not saying he is for a fact the savior but I accept him as the savior.
All religion asks for is faith, not knowledge. In fact, it seems to dislike people saying they "know" god exists. So believing in Jesus' divinity is, in terms of the rest of the Abrahamic religions, believing in the validity of Christianity. That's why I thought it was contradictory to say that you believe any of them could be correct, but believe in Jesus as a savior, because that's against the teachings of the other two judeo-christian religions, who get offended by the notion of Jesus being divine.
