You don’t have to be religious to feel like you want to help and make others feel good… I feel like most Christians, who say they are Christians, really are not Christians. They either smoke pot, or have judgmental issues. I feel religion is a personal believe and is supposed to be kept to yourself, and not pressured onto others… Inspire people by being the christian not telling people about it… I also feel that religion and God are two entirely separate things… People seem to think that because I am not a christian I don’t believe in god. I do, I believe in my own god, the one that I knew before I was to be taught about religion or Jesus or any god… I do see the good religion can do for people, however I feel those people that chose to be religious need to be guided anyhow. I feel religion is a way for the government to control their people, to make us feel content and safe. Thinking in a different realm could be threatening to the powerful people… I also feel like most Christians are just Christians because they want to look good rather than actually being good… Did you know that the same part of the brain that is being stimulated during a religious moment is the same part of the brain that is being stimulated during a schizophrenic moment? Hmmmm.. I’m human on plant earth. I am made up of billions of tiny cells that will eventually die off one by one.
A wise man once said to me
“My dear child, its religion. Its doesn’t have to make sense.”
Some ancient religions required human sacrifices, others animal sacrifices, still others the annihilation of “unbelievers”. To that extent, religion sometimes does cause wars. The problem comes when all religions are lumped together and summarily rebuked, ridiculed, rebuffed or relegated to the scrap heap of human experience. This is a form of religious “profiling” that those who oppose religion would very often abhor being used to fight crime or prevent terrorism.
I struggled as a young man with the phrase “Christian guerillas” as it was applied to one of the factions fighting in Beirut, Lebanon. As a Christian myself, the two terms seemed antithetical to each other, but they were strung together never- the- less by reporters and news editors covering that struggle.
Religion and religious people have often been used and abused, twisted, misguided and manipulated by callous (and often non- religious) politicians (or power- intoxicated religious leaders) to initiate and/or seek justification for war.
But saying that religion causes war is like saying that vehicles cause accidents. Yes, from time to time wars have been fought in the name of religion. And at times religion was the pivotal cause or justification of such wars. But religious people have also done much good for their neighbors, and strangers alike. Did anyone notice the number of religious organizations what were already on the ground in Haiti even before the earthquake struck?
Those who oppose religion for any reason are quick to blame religion for every war they can, but they refuse to notice the good that religious people have done and the billions of dollars that are quietly given every year by religious people to religious organizations and used to improve communities, minister to the hurting, the sick and the needy of all sorts.
Every coin has two sides.
