    I believe it does because man makes his own religion instead of following Christ Jesus

    Sadly, it does. People tends to be fanatics when it comes to religion.

    I agree it does because all I see everyone is fighting with each other over who GOD Is the one GOD. Pentecostal fighting with the baptist and the Muslims with Christians. I would rather have spirituality any day instead of Religion.

    NO. The people who follow the teachings have misunderstood their own religions. If they truly follow their religions, there won't be any differences at all since all religions teach Love, tolerance, Truth and brotherhood.

    Every religion teaches us to love each other not to fight each other because God is only one. And all religions teach us the same thing. Islam says that ‘’Come to common terms which are same between you and us’’ Every religion teaches us humanity. We need to read over books. Why peoples fighting each other. How many years you will live 50, 60, 100? You don’t know about future so live your life happily and don’t hurt others and if you don’t hurt other others will not hurt you.
    I am a Muslim but my friend is Christian because he doesn’t interfere in my religion and I don’t interfere in his religion.

    I mean every religion teaches us humanity and love so if we follow this point no one will fight each other nothing will divide us as peoples. I think that religions are our teachers and they are teaching us the same thing but there method of teaching is different.
    I hope this will be the answer of your question.

    Well, yes and no...but mostly yes!   Whenever we create a group identity, we separate ourselves from everyone outside that group.  When we identify ourselves as a Roman Catholic, Orthodox Jew, or a Mormon for example, we not only are creating a division between "us and them" but also create an "in-group" vs "out-group" mentality.  This often can lead to a sense of competition, one-upmanship, "I've got the truth and you only have half truths," kind of attitudes.  The reason for this is because groups are self preserving in nature.  They can only maintain their existence by leading their followers to believe that they are better than any other group.....and they may even do this by proclaiming they are best because they are the most self-effacing, tolerant, egalitarian, and openly accepting of all the other groups out there!   Most religions teach tolerance and acceptance but there is a naturally occurring outcome once "religion" become "a religion."

    it's "Yes" for who have a bad soul and has limited knowledge in his religion and can believe anything unreal for others(it's common in every where )

    it's "No" for who have good soul who look to people as humans not enemies.
