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.
Truth cannot be given to you; especially if you are following an organized religion, then truth will be as far from you as darkness is from light. Truth is not found by observing rituals, undertaking pilgrimages or reading the scriptures. It is simply a waste of time.
– Anandmurti Gurumaa
I am very careful in what I say. You can’t make a funny story about religion.

Hobbies of any kind are boring except to people who have the same hobby. This is also true of religion, although you will not find me saying so in print.

This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.
– Dalai Lama
All religions are like the tributaries of a river, they ultimately flow into the ocean, similarly truth comes under different names but the end result is always the same.
Morality is doing what is right regardless of what you are told. Religion is doing what you are told regardless of what is right.

I tried choosing a religion once. It was a lot like choosing a straw for my drink. There were so many types and colors. I stood there trying to decide which was best; bendy straws, swirly ones, light up straws, really long straws, etc. After a while I just said f**k it and walked away with my drink. It still tasted the same without a straw.
The really important thing about religion is that your faith and your belief help you to live a better life, sustain you in sorrow, and make you face the end of life with serenity.
Faith in God, is not blind faith. It is not an uneducated person wishing blindly for nirvana. You have to have faith in God to explain it. But, it is impossible to explain it to someone who chooses not to experience it. It is a choice, which in itself excludes blindness. It is a choice that has profound consequences. Faith, is not to be confused with religion.
Religions all have different names, but they all contain the same truths. I think the people of our religion should be tolerant and understand people believe different things.
– Muhammad Ali
Every religion is founded on peace and love…:)
The ten commandments are not multiple choices.
Life without Jesus is not worth living.
