Religion

Updated on July 1, 2017

Do we really think as to where did religion starts? What is really the true religion? Did we wonder why religion was made and who started it? Religion is the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods. Do we have our religion? What is your religion?

Talking about religion is the most difficult task to do. Why? it's simply because people will try to defend their religion over other religion. Does defending your religion satisfy you? Until when it would satisfy you? Until you had kill other person just to say you are right from others?

People at this present years committed killing, kidnappings, tortures, etc just because of religion. They would want to put their religions over others. Some would even torture innocent people especially children just to let them convert into their religion. Is it worthy if you kill innocent ones?


Religion was made for us to feel the guilt especially if we do mistakes but how come most of us today easily commits mistakes? where is our conscience now? Do we still have it? Are we happy hearing this news everywhere regarding death of christian people because of not converting to other religion?


We should make something about this issues. We must pray and let God comes into our hearts. We should not let evil take charge of our lives. We live for God and not for money, fame, and false gods.

True religion is a religion which guides us and never let us down. True religion will automatically reflects thru an individual by his/ her actions. A person who always put God first can never hurt innocent person despite difficulties in life which he might encounter.


We should act right and speak the truth cause we are what makes our religion. Our religion reflects thru us. As they say " True beauty reflects from within". True religion will definitely reflects through the way we handle situations, the way we speak, the way we communicate with others, the way we live, and the way we are.
