The Use Of Religion, Christianity Is Good?

Updated on May 30, 2017

Religion has been around for quite some time now, some have been split into different varieties like Christianity with its multiple branches. Many religions have certain laws like Christians and Forgiveness. Each has a set of some commandments or something similar, in any case shall we get down to the nitty gritty? Christianity is one of the most well known religions in the world, churches and chapels litter the land like stars in the sky. Each usually speaking about the savior Jesus Christ and how we should believe in him and such. While many Christians would like to say they help out quite alot in the world here are some cons of this religion.

It is Homophobic. In the Levictus 18:22 it says, "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination," meaning that if a man does not lay with a women but a man instead it's basically a crime against God.

It is Misogynistic. In the New Testament it says, "Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church." meaning that a woman should do whatever a man says because he is the head of the house.

It is based on Fear. We have all heard the usual saying "God fearing person." from many folks. They say one should love and respect God yet fear him. But not only that there is the fear that says if one does not believe in God they will go to Hell.

That i only a few of the things See Sharp Press has said about Christianity. Me personally many of the men and women I have met who are Christians are just plain bad people. Many have tried to force their religion onto me, many have tried to convince me to join them and most of them have tried to tell me I am a bad person because of the things I do and the things I like.

Those who are gay, listen to rock and roll or do different things are usually out castes and are said to burn in Hell once they reach their ending days. But most of them are hypocrites, Jesus Christ said in The Old Testament Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?' And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS." That means you can preach all about how you are different from those you look down upon but you are no different if you do the same things but preach against them.

Have you ever been on the news and there was a story about a Preacher who was touching little children? There have been many of those and considering they are Christians the very thing they do is something they preach against.

Many people I have met have said this religion has helped them out greatly with their lives whether they had been on drugs or if something else has caused their lives to become a little hectic. It is safe to say that many religions can help people out, but many people who follow this religions can also be doing things they shouldn't be doing.

The Inquisition and The Salem Witch Trials are just two of the few thing said to have been done in the name of God. Many innocent people were killed in both, I would have to say having trust in your religion is good and all but lives that have been cast away can not be reclaimed back so easily.

If your happy with your religion that is great, if it has helped you in some way that is even better but don't let it corrupt you. Chances are many religions if not all have had a bad thing or two happen. Also lay off the gays and rock and roll, them people can dance and I am not having anyone take my favorite band away.

      Let me suggest that Religion is Progressive. The old Bronze Age thought has given way to the New Testament thought which has given way to a New Era thought. Bronze Age thought depicted God as a Warrior/Killer with negative human emotions such as: Jealousy, Vengeance and Anger. The New Testament portrays God as a good Loving Father who is Merciful, Forgiving and Accepting. New Era thought recognizes the similarity among the Core Values of religion and states there is only One Source for all religions. Look at the source, not the individual religion and you will find agreement. See the Baha'i Faith or my article on same.
