    Why so many religious questions suddenly?

    Is this all of a sudden the 'God' pages?  Why so many God questions.  I don't look here, in this place for religious answers.

    It's a form of advertising by minority groups trying to take over.

      I have tried to advise all to ignore them.

    Not to be drawn into meaningless debates and discussions with them, trust me it is a complete waste of time and only gives them the platform and the acknoledgement they seek.

    Hopefully if we have the strength of will to ignore them they will eventually tire and go and annoy someone else...

    They demean serious Religious debate and do little credit to the religions to which they say they belong.

    Ignore them or Block them out.

    1. It's a way for people to get attention who may not have their writing skills up to par.

    2. We're entering some dark times filled with politicians, economists, and scientists lying to us. Religion is filling the void. . .

    I hadn't noticed an upsurge in religious questions. But you are posting a question in the Religion and Philosophy section. That might be why.

    Religion is actually a topic that has been sticking out to me a lot lately. I was raised in a VERY Christian home and honestly I can’t remember missing a day of church in my life (my family goes to church while we’re on vacation, just to give you a picture). Personally I never really got too into it. I go mainly to avoid needless conflicts with my mother, and also because my pastor happens to be freaking epic. Lol
    One thing I do see however, is a gigantic misunderstanding of organized religion. Now, I’m sure we’re all aware that there are several different branches of Christianity. One analogy that could be used is stereotyping in high school (you know, the goths, the preps, the jocks, etc… my church would be considered a drifter I would say…or a goth. Not too sure yet.  lol). There are several different churches, and several different preachers, with several different views of ‘how to fix the world’ essentially. This is where the wrong people step up.
    You may have heard of the man who stood by the fresh grave of a young homosexual who had been murdered, holding up a sign that said “he is burning in hell now”. This is completely unacceptable and should not be tolerated. Also, this is one of the examples of the wrong people; the people who are portraying Christians to be insensitive bastards who only care about themselves. Well, let me tell you this before this comment turns into a hub (I may just do that now, thanks for the inspiration! Even though this comment is completely off the topic of the original question…lol). This is not the way that anything, right or wrong, should be handled. I personally, would have taken the liberty of punching the ass out right then and there, white collar or not. Where I go to church, I wear Tripp pants and I’m still accepted and treated like a human. Where I go to church, we have biker Sunday. Where I go to church, we baptize our pets (seriously, we had a horse last time. Iiiit was interesting…). Where I go to church, I’m not worried about my gay friends being criticized or made fun of. Where I go to church, we have a picture of Jesus on a chopper! People who make Christians look like egotistical asswipes, as far as I’m concerned, you’re burning in hell now.

    So then, do  not come here for such questions.  I do not look here for my spiritual guidance, but if I can answer or direct, I will.  That is what a public forum is for.

    If there is an increase in the nature of the questions, it must be a reflection of what is on the mind of the people.

    I would look here, there are many hubs that carry wisdom and experience, except for the Merlin Fraser types, they just plain boring back door open to run out all the time.

    This is it as far as your life on the earth is concern with what is next if anything when you die on the earth. You have been given the answer by me. You will not listen and that is just fine with me. I am just the messenger who have on August 1, 1982 A.D. a Sunday morning GOD given me a vision the other side of death. It is glorious. I am just fulfilling my destiny and purpose on the earth with these answers that I have been giving to you. When you crossover to the other side of death it is as real and even more real in intensity as in this moment of you reading my answer to this question at this moment. I hope you will be satisfy with what you get over there because I am completely satisfy what I will be getting over there because of the sneak preview of the other side of death that GOD shown me in a vision on August 1, 1982 A.D. a Sunday morning. Well I have made it as plain and simple for everyone to understand so keep up the questions and I will break it down for everybody to understand the answers as clearly as possible to the glory of GOD. By all means keep on voting me down so that others will be inspire and not take it personally because I am doing GOD'S will on the earth for me personally. I am an opened book with nothing to hide with my answers to questions on hubpages.

    @everyone:  This is posted under religion because I Had to have a category.  I'm not knocking it all, I just noticed when I go to the Q&A page: Period: all I see are religious questions anymore on the Main page. I was simply wondering why.  I get MY answers from the Bible.  Just a question.  Thanks for answering it though.

    Religion is one of the most popular and most debated subject in history.  So don't be surprised.

    Unfortunately, BobbiRant, I have no idea of the answer to your question. I only popped in to see whether anyone else did.

    Even more unfortunately, having 'read' (impossible to do)Ambassador Butler's 'answer' (impossible to decipher), I've just lost the will to live.

    Insanity. Pure, raving, insanity.

    With sales reps like this, God's got no chance here.

    No click-thrus for Him from AB's works, I'll wager..

    Writers tend to be thinkers.  Not all of us are brilliant thinkers, mind you, but we are all thinkers.  In an effort to spark thought, I think sometimes folks turn to hot button topics like religion and politics.  They may in no way, shape, or form be interested in an actual answer, just in something that will spark a thought for them or lead them onto a thought pattern they hadn't planned on.  The quickest way to get attention is usually to hit a topic that draws a lot of attention.

    Religion is the "organized practice" of worshiping a deity. Jesus Christ criticized the most religious people of that day because He could see what they were thinking and called them hypocrites! God knows if you love Him and follow His Son by what is in your heart, not by what you do in church. Consumerism, by the way, is a religion and don't let anyone tell you different! If you worship money or what it can buy you, you are paying tribute to the "prince of the air" (look it up). "For the love of money is the root of all evil". Good luck mentioning "Jesus Christ" in school; you might be expelled for something like that these days..!

    This question will take you back to the crusades? When two opposing forces meet each other in battle and they have different  religious belief systems, both are praying to their respective god  for victory.

    Well, It's on here isn't it. Dear me, Merlin what is the problem, I think it's great to see some of Gods words being discussed. We're not trying to take over, don't be so intimidated it's just healthy discussion.

    Love it, guess what Merlin, you might learn something, and ask Jesus into your life, and change your life forever and have eternal salvation. Wouldn't that be wonderful, Alleluia.

    Religion is a great way to manipulate people and make money.
    Sorry I had to answer as I did. I have just seen so much cheating in this world I am tired of religions.

    Best wishes
