    Alternatively religion is a small group of power hungry people telling everybody god has given them a message as to how they should think and act and a bunch of woolly minded people fall for it.

    a good idea originally designed by some smart people to give all guidance to do good but at the same time control the actions of everyone. now it's all about making money, having power and controling the way people live according to the thoughts of others.

    I can only really speak about Christianity as it is the only religion in which I have participated but from what I recall as a child, when i was indoctrinated into catholicism; religion is government of conscience.  Take away the guilt and what are you left with? Guilt is the glue which holds it together, faith seems to be another word for hope and if you add hope and guilt together you get obedience. If it is a force for good ... then surely the people involved were good anyway. Religion doesn't train you to be good, it invites you to join others ... the more people that join, the more it seems like you shouldn't really question it because if you do, then you're saying all those good people are wrong .. and if you do that, often you're an outcast. Religion makes your mind up for you and when you disagree it makes you feel bad about it.

    Baptist,Atheist,buddeist,Catholic,Mormon,Scientologest,Pentecostal,7th Day advent.These are some of the Religions of the world.If they were Christian's they would not have separate titles.There is no such thing as a Christian-Baptist and so forth.
    These religions are created by men and women of the world.
    Christianity is a Salvation and was not created by humankind.
    You can not claim the Christian name and another title of church worship at the same time.
