Why worry about following particular religions instead of simply following what we know to be right?


I feel that so much of time is spent worrying about what religion practises what, which religion is true,which is more valid and so on and so forth. We understand what good values are in life and if we decide to follow them then surely that is what is important ?

    Thanks for you comments. I'd like to say 'no' I don't read and understand as an adult the same way I did when I was 7. But I was speaking from an adult stance and from that I do KNOW what is right and wrong. I did not state that I..(cont caps below)
