What is Religion?
Did you ever wonder why are there so Religions? Or why there are so many Gods? There is a Christian, Jewish, Catholic, Mormon, Buddha, Muslim, even a New Age God, just to name a few. So with so many Religious concepts of God, how are you to know which is the real God?
Did you ever wonder why are there so many Gods? And are you sure the Religion and God you have chosen to worship, is the TRUE provable one? Because if you can not PROVE anything….what do you really have? Just a belief. Just a faith. What good is a belief and a faith in time of need? That’s right…no good at all.
Just how are you to know which one is the Real God?
Besides your religion telling you there is a God, and telling what and how you should worship this God, just what proof do you have, that there even is a God?
If God were something real, wouldn’t It let you know first hand? Wouldn’t God want you to know him? Personally?
Doesn’t the fact that there are so many conflicting Religious beliefs of, on or about God, tell you that God is a complete mystery to the world? No matter if you go to the Religious structures, Holy Mountains, Holy Caves, Holy Men, Holy Books or Holy Tapes…YOU still have not personally known nor found a real God. WHY?
All Religion is based on beliefs. Beliefs are, ‘opinions.’ And ‘opinions’ are ‘beliefs without proof.’ And beliefs can change
Religion started out with the Sun, then followed with Mythology. Mythology is, ‘an imaginary or fictitious thing or person’. ‘Not fact or logic.’
There just is no proof as to whether a God or gods existed then or now. None. Religions are based on faith and faith is only a, belief’. People need to believe that there is ‘something’ more, so they invented God, Gods, Goddess, Deities and Religions.
You need to know FACTS, not OPINIONS in order to find and connect personally with a Real God, instead of passed down beliefs of a God, based on someone else’s understanding, NOT yours.
According to Websters, religion means a, ‘set of beliefs concerning the cause of all things.’
So, Religion is a belief. And, just because a belief is agreed and accepted as factual, does not make it so.
And just what is a belief based on? What FACTS? In the case of religion, the only facts they have, are passed down beliefs.
So, your religion is you agreeing and accepting the beliefs of others. Your Religion is you agreeing with someone else’s opinion of the the reality of God based on THEIR understanding. Not yours.Theirs.
Religion is a ‘belief in, worship of, or obedience to a supernatural power or powers considered to be divine or to have control of human destiny.’ Again, a BELIEF. Not a FACT.
From the beginning of Religion, each of these Religious groups choose the God they believe is the real God, then do their best to convince all others that their God is the Real and only God. For some reason most of these Religious groups think its their duty to force the world into their beliefs. Odd that any God of any Religion would want His followers to be so hateful of others.
Religion started with terrible conflicts and all these thousands of years later….NOTHING HAS CHANGED.
The fact is….NO Religion knows GOD. They know what they THINK they know. They know what they have been TAUGHT to know of God. By other men. Not by God personally.
Unless God is personal, to you, You do not have Real God. AND….unless God speaks directly to YOU, you have no God. You have a belief. A belief you call God. All based on what other have told you.
Personally I think the entire world would be so much better off if there was NO RELIGION and each person worshiped privately, the God of their understanding. Not the God they have been TAUGHT to believe in.
Think of this…Religion means, ‘conscientiousness,’ which means,’ just, upright, honest, faithful, devoted, dedicated.’
Religion is…You being, just, upright, honest, faithful, devoted, dedicated to God. Religion is a personal thing and does not need to be organized.
Maybe it’s time for you to do your own to find a Real God. Not a belief of a GOD base on the OPINIONS of those before you.
