Our world has been full of war, hatred, greed, envy and whatever you may think, but what is the real reason behind this. I have been watching and reading and it all points me to one thing – – an individual’s belief and interpretation. And where does this come from?
There are many unexplainable things in Earth and outside our universe. There are two groups that tackle this the most, Religion and Science. Science has been continuously investigating the origin of things while Religion has summarized it already. However, let us talk more about religion. Religion is a system of faith and worship formed by individuals who have based their teachings on certain books that were written by their ancestors on how they have met one person that has changed their lives and how they have interpreted the teachings of this person. Each religion has this one person who they worship and goes by the different name. There are scriptures saying that this person has walked thousands of miles to spread the work and words of the Creator which are believable since after all, Earth is a one big land before which Science calls “Pangea” before that asteroid hit us that started the movements of plates and created what we know now as the seven continents.
There are four large religions that mostly rules Earth — Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism and there is the folk religion. These religions have been the standard of code and ethics of most of us depends on your place of birth and family you belong with. Most of us, as a kid was brought to these buildings where worship is being done to learn about the religion and our elders, whom will lecture us if we have done something wrong based on what they learned from it. As we grow, we embrace the codes and ethics of religion. We were thought of what is right and not right to do. I will quote this “we were thought of what is not right to do” as they will give examples of it.
And then there come the struggles in life that led us to do what is not right to do because we know it. Followed by the word “forgiveness” that we can do through penance that will wash away the sins we have done. And all of this was thought to us by Religion that has impacted our beliefs and how we see our lives. Most people with power and authority have their religions and believes that whatever bad you do as long as they return the favor by doing good, then you are still good which has led to a hunger for more and the start of whatever I first mentioned at first. Whose wealthy most of the time? The one whose leading the religion. With all interpretations from each, is there someone really telling the whole truth about the Creator or are they just continuously fooling their followers for them to gain more power and authority. How do the preachers today talk compare to preachers before?
Religion was never there at first, it was just created by people. I once believed, but now I don’t. I believe in the CREATOR, whoever he is. I know most of you might react violently but this is my opinion and what I have learned as I progress with my life. After all, we have thought of the word RESPECT. I hope you give me respect for what I have written, it is up to you if you still want to believe in your religion or not. As for me, I will continue praying and believing to the CREATOR that one day all these religions will be one to make Earth the place it should have been before it is too late. Imagine the article photo of the religions around the world with one color. What do you think the Earth will look like compared to what you are seeing now?
