Do you really need a Religion?

Recommended Posts

Hi all my Spiritual friends.

 

We all PrimeDicers come here from different parts of the world, different cultures, different colors & different religions. But we all gamble here.

As far as I know some religions strictly prohibit Gambling, Some prohibit alcohol. Likewise every religion has some rule set. Disobeying them consider as sin and the person who commit sin is subject to a punishment. With all this all these religions try to give us one think. That is how to live peacefully without hurting anyone.

But still is it happening? How many people kill each other in the name of their religion? How many people get killed every second? How many girls get raped every second? Does the religion does its job? 

What I think is all religions work as a Guide Book. If we all follow it, world will be a better place. But some don't like to follows guides. They just deviate from it and destroy the balance. Even some follow the Guide Book; they give different interpretation to it and commit sin in name of the religion.

So I think whatever good or bad happen in this world, Religion has nothing to do with it. It’s just attitudes of the people. So then do we need a religion if all people have good attitude?

What do you think?

The purposes of the practice of a religion are to achieve the goals of salvation for oneself and others, and (if there is a God) to render due worship and obedience to God. Different religions have different understandings of salvation and GOD.But I believed there is Only One GOD and Religion is so important in our daily life.

Hmm well said. Okay, yes we need religion. But I'm not saying it as violation of humanity's. Actually there are different kind of religion and stay them on their position. But truly we need the humanity. Attitude shouldn't be here. All should stay and see each other as same class people. Actually our attitude makes the difference as you said. Why? Okay you are at pd to gamble and get profit. When you loss you become rude behaves bad with other. It's just our attitude. No religion support any bad work or bad thing.

Well, I dont follow any religion, any group or things like this. Religion, like other things, can help ppl just like can harm ppl lifes, depend on what ppl do with the things that are given to then as knowledge.

My family is Christian, and we live very well, and that's the way things should happen. People with different visions and opinions coexisting in harmony.

BladeMaster I get your point that's there's a lot of bad things happening that's not because religion, but what you are saying is also contradicting itself, because you say that there's a lot of people killing in the name of there religion, like extreme Islamist and other crazy religious people. I think that every religion can be both good and bad, depending on how you choose to look at it. I also get your point that it's not the religion that's bad, but the way people choose to believe in it that can be bad. I think it's a good thing to have something to believe in, but I don't like it  if someone is trying to get others to believe in what he or she is believing. So believe in what you want, but don't try to get others to believe the same as you, they can believe what they want to :)

Religion has caused Evil than Good to this World.

 

Do you know it is not a SIN in ISLAM to kill your brother that is not practicing ISLAM. It's very crazy.

 

There is nothing about Religion. All Religion have their own Hell.

If I am a Christian, I will go to Hell according to Muslims.

 

If I am a Buddist, I will go to Hell according to Christianity.

 

Why does Everyone has Hell. 

 

I just feel the Only Law is just that We should all Love each other.

 

If we Love each other no matter the Sector, Tribe, Race, Nationality, Color of Skin, Sexual Orientation, etc. The World would be a better place.

in my opinion we still need religion for social control and our souls, by remembering our sins we will avoid things that are detrimental to others, in the present situation there are indeed some groups that commit acts of violence in the name of religion even though it is not at all they do it on the basis of satisfaction of their brutality is not based on religion because religion is only used as a shield to justify their mistakes and in fact good people because religion is more numerous than people who commit crimes in the name of religion remember in the name of religion not because religion itself tells them to do wrong action

Religion is an organized collection of beliefs, cultural systems, and worldviews that connect humans with the order / commands of life. [Note 1] Many religions have narratives, symbols, and sacred history that are intended to explain the meaning of life and / or explain the origin life or the universe. From their beliefs about the cosmos and human nature, people get morality, ethics, religious law or a preferred lifestyle. According to some estimates, there are around 4,200 religions in the world. Source from https://id.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion.
in my opinion we need God and believe in Him. 

Luke 10:27

" Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,  and love your neighbor as yourself "

sometimes in a condition you will really need religion as a form of surrender after trying to achieve something or when you are in a slump you will really need it as a place to surrender to everything that you experience. I myself likened religion like medicine so you know medicine, of course. if you consume a lot of drugs so that the excess is certainly not very good, so is religion when you go too deep without understanding then you will look drunk in religion to kill innocent people with religious grounds.
it is very strange to use religion as a shield, I myself have my own perception about religion, so do you.

Interesting discussion, I guess your childhood and culture will determine this.

Oh how very correct you are Will. We are but products of our upbringing and our environment. Only if every person was able to identify this and understand it. Our early lives are nought but nature and nurture, Then after the age of three when our character is for the most part built we get to spend the rest of our lives trying to work out the past. 

I asked my mom once why she was a devout catholic. Going to church every morning. And she said "well because of the love from jesus christ". We discuss religion often myself being agnostic. And sometimes i get her to acknowledge the foundation of her beliefs and the truths of all religions. 

Personally i think they are a designed method of controlling the herds and keeping powers in the hands of those who are powerful. There a few religions i've spent anytime discovering that don't abuse their power or display the opposite of that which they teach. 

It's true all religions have their good qualities and you cant judge a whole from its pieces...But imagine the world without religion. Pretty peaceful right?

If god is the omnipotent omnipresent being described...then what the fuck?

If you haven't already heard of the egg theory look it up. That's a neat little thought.

world without religion is quite dangerous because we can be free to do various things, one of which is murder, sex. religion can overcome this, but I myself think that a world without religion is good because there is no division caused by religion. in my country religion is often used as a political shield
