C.S. Lewis on Christianity Among a World of Religions

The other religions were not even explained, in the earlier Christian
fashion, as the work of devils. That I might, conceivably, have been
brought to believe. But the impression I got was that religion in
general, though utterly false, was a natural growth, a kind of endemic
nonsense into which humanity tended to blunder. In the midst of a
thousand such religions stood our own, the thousand and first, labeled
"True". But on what grounds could I believe in this exception? It
obviously was in some general sense the same kind of thing as all the
rest. Why was it so differently treated? Need I, at any rate, continue
to treat it differently? I was very anxious not to.
