What is the purpose of religion? Many will say that it is to teach people God’s truth. What God’s truth is can be debated by most of our religions. Some say religion serves to explain our purpose on this earth. Others say that it explains our final destination. It subsides our fear of our nonexistence. Some religion, propose a comforting parenting God, who cares much about his children; and there are other religions that propose a demanding and vengeful God.
Religion should make an individual feel good about themselves and the world. Many times, when we feel good and spirited, we want to share what made us feel good with others. This is spreading the religion out of love for mankind. Religion that is forced on others is done for the opposite reason. It is done out of arrogance, or the feeling that one is superior to another. Religion by itself does not make one spirited and good; it can only guide the individual. One becomes spirited and good by free will.
It is with the buffet of religions, that we sometime choose to guide us on this earth. Choose the ones that make you good and spirited. For some this may be difficult to find in any religion, and for others it will found in any religion. Share your findings with your friends, and the world.
