If you actually know anything substantive about major world religions, you know the answer to this question is an emphatic “no.”
The only people claiming that all religions are the same or that all religions are equally true are those people who know little to nothing about world religions, or who are unable to do a little bit of critical thinking.
The major religions of the world profess profoundly different views of the nature of God, the nature of man, the afterlife, the source of evil, and a host of other weighty topics. It is true that the ethical teachings contained in major religions have some commonality, but ethics are but one portion of what constitutes a religion’s core beliefs.
If you are a Christian, then you believe that Jesus is the third person of the Triune God. No other major world religion recognizes Jesus as God in this sense, so clearly somebody is wrong! We can’t all be right because Jesus can’t both be God and not God at the same time and in the same sense.
If Christians are right about Jesus being God, then other religions who deny this fact are wrong about who God is. They get God wrong, in other words. I would say that is a serious error which dramatically undermines the claim that all religions are true.
