Sep 18 '20 at 14:17 comment added SLM The OP is still begging the question. Can Catholics prove their religion as the truth and thus prove that other religions are sin. How does one know that Scripture (which bible and why) or Tradition (which tradition and why) is the truth? Anyone has an opinion about reality itself. No Pope is gonna say yeah, our opinion is not about reality itself. OTOH, if the OP is simply asking if Catholics opine about other religions, then again, sure, the obvious answer is yes of course. Point remains the OP is a meaningless question.
Sep 17 '20 at 15:07 comment added Andreas Blass @SLM You begin by saying that "In the realm of reality" is the point, but most of the rest of your comment is about opinions. Even when you later use the word "reality" in "each reality is different for each of those three", you seem to mean their opinions about reality, not reality itself. If I were to become an idolater, God would remain unchanged; all that changes would be my opinion about reality, not reality itself. And that changed opinion seems to be what you're calling reality "for" me.
Sep 17 '20 at 14:34 comment added SLM "In the realm of reality" is the point. Every religion believes it lives in reality. The "one, true God" is for example supposedly known by Christians (Catholics, Orthodox, Protestant, even though each could be a separate religion in reality), Jews, and Islamics. But obviously each reality is different for each of those three as well. So again, the answer is an obvious yes to the OP and essentially is a meaningless question.
Sep 17 '20 at 3:38 comment added Andreas Blass You seem to confuse opinions with reality. In the realm of opinions, there is a symmetry: Catholics think idolaters sin by worshipping false gods, and idolaters think Catholics sin by not worshiping idols. But in the realm of reality, the situation is not symmetric, because there is no similarity between the true God on the one hand and demons, idols, etc. on the other. There is similarity only in some of their worshippers' opinions, but not in reality.
Sep 17 '20 at 2:00 comment added SLM It seems to me that any religion (worth its salt) would view any other religion (that obviously wouldn't be the same religion per definition) as sin. In other words, does this question have any meaning, besides what must be the obvious answer (yes)?

May 21 '20 at 15:21 comment added karma @zippy2006, I ask the second question (about other religion) after reading the answer for the first question (about atheist). What have come in my mind the answer to my question is "Yes, other religion is a sin" based on the answer about atheist : Disbelieving Jesus means that you are rebelling against Jesus commands and therefore sinning. But that's only my own answer, so I ask here.
May 21 '20 at 15:16 comment added zippy2006 @karma I have no idea how that is different from what I said, but either way you're asking two very different questions.
May 21 '20 at 14:55 comment added karma @zippy2006, your number 1 is not what I meant. What I mean is : 1) How could an atheist is said by theist "they rebel against God's command" while they don't even believe that God exist in the first place?
May 21 '20 at 14:52 comment added karma @curiosdanni, to whom is the True God ? to whom is the counterfeit version ? In the point of view of other religion themselves surely they say "we worships The True God".
May 20 '20 at 4:09 comment added zippy2006 You are asking two different questions: 1) How could an atheist sin when they rebel against God's command if they don't even believe in God in the first place? 2) Is "other religion" a sin?

May 19 '20 at 22:48 comment added curiousdannii The True God, of course. Why would God be pleased with someone who worships a counterfeit version of himself?
