Is God or Religion a good topic to write about?

Live Life to the Fullest...
Live Life to the Fullest...

     Honestly, I am not a religious individual. (AT ALL!) From my point of view, religion has turned into a debate of "which path is the right path" and they all have uneducated people scared out of their wits, because they are told if you take the "wrong path" you are going to end up in a place like "Purgatory", or "Hell"... Who is to say for sure exactly which path is the correct one? If you are raised by strict Catholics, then you will believe like a Catholic. If you were raised by Pagans, then you wll believe like a Pagan. And so-on, and so-forth.

     A good example: A friend of mine just pased away only a week ago. He was 60 years old. He was told one day, that his liver was shutting down, (due to a life-long affair with the great taste of alcohol) and he had about a year, to a year-and-a-half to live. Two days later, still in the hospital, the doctor told him his kidneys were failing. He was unresponsive. They gave him six months to live. The next day, they gave him a week, or so, to live, and he passed away the day after that. In the meantime, I sent him an Email to convince him not to worry, or be scared, because he was not going to be over-looked by anyone, or anything. He is destined to continue on, just like each, and every one of us. I wish more people understood that. Why should a person passing on have to worry about what is going to happen to them when they get to where they are going? Death is a part of the process of life, as Life is a part of the process of Death.

     There are too many "blank spots" that nobody can seem to fill in. (Ask a priest who created "God" and see if he tells you, "You've just got to have FAITH, my child!") Well some people just have faith in different things. Just because it's not exactly the same words in every religion, it doesn't mean that the people are NON-BELIEVERS!

     To write about religion, or he you call "God", is no different than writing about Fortune Telling, or Tree Climbing... You write what you know! And if your not sure about something, you look it up, right?

     A warning on writing about religion, though- (from experience) You will get a whole MESS of comments, with a whole diferent range of beliefs, and you just might start up a good debate! So, be very open-minded and optimistic, as this subject is touchy for some readrs! But don't let that discourage you! Get your point across, and accept all point-of-views... It's that simple!

     My point of view is non-religious, as I am non-religious. Where as you may get comments from every religion out there! Everyone must understand that each individuals' opinion on religion and/or "God", will never be completely the same, as there are no two people exactly alike, that's what makes us so unique! The same goes for any subject you write about that is personal to you... That's the good part about writing! When you write about personal beliefs, or your own opinions, your never wrong! ...BECAUSE it is your "opinion".

Thank you for the comment aka-dj.

I understand that your beliefs are your beliefs, and as I said, everyone does not believe the same things. I am more scientific than I am religious. Actually, I'm not religious at all, and it does not bother me, because I know nothing bad will ever happen to me. (i.e, I will not end up in some pit of fire, or in a beautiful "paradise".) Nobody knows for sure what happens after death. And if anyone ever finds out, I am sure it will be Science that does all the hard work.

As an agnostic, I appreciate you writing this hub. Thank you.

Tom: I have not read your Islam hub but if it is at all negative I would watch your back. You don't want a fatwa issued on you like Salman Rushdie!

Religion... Should've been named "confusion"...

It doesn't bother me to be a dart board honestly... I'm used to it. I don't want to come across as one of those "non-believers", as I DO believe in something. I just have different "views", thats all... Maybe some things get me riled up, but in most cases, I don't mind that other people believe in their own religion, or non-religion, whichever... I am set in my ways, as everyone else is in theirs...and that's all good. Like I've said 100 times... it's what makes us unique.

Religion is a great topic to write about - if you aspire to ba a dart board! Just kidding. I wrote an article about Islam a while back and I was pretty aprehensive, but it turned out fine.

Goldentoad- thanks so very much! Your very kind, and I look forward to reading more of your stuff!

And 'B'- I've been contemplating EVERYTHING lately- This hubpages thing is new to me, and I'm already lovin' it! Thanks so much!

we definitely have similar views. I think once you start contemplating the existence of "God," you find what it Truly is.

Yes, things DO seem to start flowing once you are writing from your heart =]]Great work! Would love to keep sharing ideas here on hubpages. Well, and ANYWHERE for that matter! haha

Thank You for your point of view! Even though I am not a religious person, I like to hear everyone's opinions! Not only will it help my ideas, it also gives me a clue of what everyone else is thinking! Thanks so much musicman!

I think there are so many different views on the subject that it makes it hard to talk about it. So I just beleive in the Lord and leave all views and opinions about religion to themselves.Just keep in mind God created all things.You can't force religion down anyone's throat either they beleive or they don't.

sometimes the religion topic gets pretty heated around here but its usually from just a couple of individuals but I find religion interesting to read, but I hate when someone forces it on me and says they know everything that happens when I die. To them I say, well, then there's no point in living. And I enjoyed your hub too.

There is no other way to approach religion other than open-minded, as I believe there is no "One way". It's actually pretty complicated to write about religion, unless you are writing about your own beliefs. ( At least, that's what I think...) :)

Thank you for your openness and honesty. If there is a false, there must be a true. If there are many "faiths", there must be one true. Nothing can be right and wrong, black and white, real and unreal, at the same time.

As to whether it is good to write about religion etc, you decide. Don't be surprised by the broad range of "beliefs" you find here on Hubpages. :)
