Starting back from Mesopotamia through to modern day "mankind" has believed in a higher power and has always had some kind of belief system. But throughout history many different religions and belief systems have sprung up and died out. But is there still truth behind any of these religions or is it just something drilled into our minds from our elders and have to believe in it or we would be disappointing those close to us. The only thing i see thats good about going to church anymore is to help instill go morals and values into my children but not to have them believe in something that myself does not believe plus i do not think its right that the churches make so much profit off of the services.
Most modern societies have separation of church from state, or at least pay lip-service to this ideal. If properly followed through, there should also be separation of ethics from religion. The underlying secular moral codes of all major religions are more or less the same, because it is innate and predates the religions. The confusion comes when religion and ethics are served as a package, and when the religion insists that knowledge of good and bad comes from God. You can have one without the other.
I don't believe on religions. Its a global problem and so creating wars in people of different religions and castes
Paraglider is far too polite to link to his own hub, but it shows how religion and ethics can be separated. Well worth a read.
Not my Hub
It is also relevant to the conversation, which is perfectly acceptable.
Oh I think ur hub ,but its my duty to tell you thats it ...
No worries, Apeksha
Starting a forum post to promote a Hub is not allowed. Linking a Hub if it is relevant is OK, but people get annoyed if you do it too often
Ok I told u coz when I written here related to my hub one guy told me very harshly so..
Sorry to hear that - it happens occasionally. The etiquette here can be a nightmare. I am not completely sure how it works, but there seems to be no problem when you have been here a while. The forums were spammed heavily a couple of weeks back, so people were a little jumpy.
Must admit, I have been here a few months and only linked my own hubs in the forums 2 or 3 times - they were relevant to the conversation and nobody seemed to have a problem.
I am more likely to link other people's Hubs, like with Paraglider's
Keep on participating in the Forums, as you are doing, and you will get lots of fans and Hubviews
In my world view, religions have divine truth AND human error. It is up to us as individuals to decide where the line is, develop faith and love each other. Simple words, but vast and diverse meanings.
profit is not always a bad thing. Sometimes the money is used for good to help others, and for some the money is a form of power of one's consciousness in the form of tithe which multiples those actions of good manyfold.
