What makes Krishna consciousness different from Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, or anything else?

Question: 
What is Krishna consciousness? What makes Krishna consciousness different from Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, or anything else?

Our Answer:

Krishna consciousness is the science of loving the Supreme Person.

The point is to learn to love God.

It's not teaching "belief in God."

It's not teaching how to be "saved."

It doesn't teach that "God is love."

It teaches exactly how God is lovable and loving.

It is the science of knowing and loving God.

Krishna means God in His most lovable form, His original form, the source of all other forms of God.

We are all parts of God, tiny samples of God. We're meant to cooperate with His plans for enjoyment.

We're all naturally Krishna conscious. Now, we're only conscious of our own body and this temporary world.

The more Krishna conscious we are, the happier we are.
