I'm curious to know what is the most important life lesson or idea, or philosophy you have learned from your religion. I want to know about your personal experience, not your particular religion's doctrine, tenet or dogma.
What is the most important lesson you have learned from your religion?
That sucks I'm sorry, Cosette.
I once read an interview that Marilyn Manson did for a magazine or something. I was heartbroken to see that he had asked all the best questions, and just received stupid answers.
The most important lesson I learned - love people.
I am a Christian and I have found that if you don't keep Jesus' commandments you don't love Him. And if you don't keep Jesus' commandments you don't love yourself or other people.
do not follow blindly, ask questions, seek real information. and Keep your Faith in God, not parishioners and pastors. dont be easily mis-led. There is a difference between God and religion.
Are you familiar with the term, "oxy-moron"?
very familiar, experienced many, Wicca, Satanists, Budist, Catholocism, Darwinists, Scientology, Some baptist sect's... lots of foolish endevor I wasted my time with chasing through years. Being impreshionable and simple minded as I had been. Got no bang for the buck, they proved empty for me.
If you are implying God is not real, or whatever you are trying here as an oxymoron, then please talk to yourself, I am not interested in any more in futal garbage, or Arguments.
I have experienced to many countries, to many religionists, and to much athestic crap to last a life time. God to me, is real, By faith.
Science has never disproved the Bible for me, contrary to foolish arguments and some seemingly deceptive ones, and it will not now, not for me.
I have honestly searched and I am now satisfied with my decision. I will leave it here, Thanks
Sorry, no arguments.
Not to believe everything that you read in any Holy Books.
That religion is man made and kills faith, and not to discuss it on Hubpages Forums
The most important thing I have learned is that God is all forgiving if we are truely penetant. So, when we are upset with someone it is most important to let it go. Forgive them and move on. You don't need to be best friends with them but you do need to forgive and move on. It leaves you with a wonderful feeling of relief.
That's a great lesson bearnmom! A lesson worth learning for all of us.
That religion in of itself is not what God wants for us to adopt or believe in. Rather a relationship is what He wants us to have with Him. A relationship of love and trust that is a two way street, both given and received.
That life is not a dress rehearsal so dont sweat the small stuff!
Hope for when all seems hopeless
Humilty for pride comes before a fall
Love ,why people matter more than 'things'
Joy inner joy , when outter joy is lacking
Peace that does not depend on circumstance or materilism
And the single most important thing I learned
I was created in love and to be loved
Most Important Lesson for me: Life truly has no no meaning or purpose without God***And His DAILY fellowship.
That is a great answer. My grandmother always said love people and use things, never the other way around.
to love myself
to forgive myself
to accept myself
I'm a bloody selfish atheist.
Sorry Eaglekiwi, This is my first post of the day and I didn`t mean to attach on to yours.Plus I had a spelling error. Gotta pay attention.
That I am not great enough to not need God and not horrible enough to not be wanted by God.
I don't have my religion, so I have to learn everything on my own. Not a bad thing mind you
Jesus Christ's commandments?
Sorry, need clarification.
Not into religion.
From the Bible I have learned that Faith can build and strengthen; Love can unite and bind; and not just knowledge, but understanding is the beginning of wisdom.
To lay down my life in order to gain life.
To be a servant to others so I become free.
I have learned to put my full trust in god. Even though we often don't really understand a lot of things, he knows the whole picture, and i can trust that he has our best interests at heart.
Learn a lesson from religion? No disrespect to religious people but I simply don't believe in religion - look at things in your own way
I've learnt that sometimes if prayers are not answered, its becos maybe the timing is not right.
Quick True life example.
A friend of mine attends an interview and prays to get the Job but didn't. Another lady was hired instead. A few weeks later the same company offer him an interview for another job which he gets.
During the year, some posts have to removed and the post of that Lady is no longer required - so she loses her Job.
Delay is not Denial.
The most important lesson I've learned is that true happiness requires a relationship with God. I have tryed material gain, drugs, social acceptance and many other paths. What I've found is a life based on self reliance and self indulgence is an empty shell filled with heartache and sadness. Dependance on God, and a personal relationship with Him, provides purpose and gives true joy, peace and happiness.
When I was a little kid and daughter of a Protestant mother and Catholic father, my big lesson was when a priest stood up there on the alter, in his "priest outfit", and said how the Catholic church was the only church; and how anyone who even set foot inside any other church was headed for Hell. Knowing how kind and decent my mother, grandfather, aunts, and others from the family were; and thinking about how God couldn't possibly "not like" all the good, kind, people in the world who were not Catholic. I realized priests and "church people" don't necessarily know what they're talking about and decided then to figure things out for myself. It was a great lesson to learn at six years, and it has served me well since.
They're only toxic to believers.
We atheists, don't buy; we dont consume
No! Non-believers are toxic to non-believers!
Yes, it the believers that are destroying life, because they collective perpetuate an ancient old idea, which is no longer relevant, once Consciousness is obtained.
The misinformed knowledge passed down thru century old text/scripture is out-dated and shouldn't exist.
It is in the best interest of Humankind that religion be thrown into a trash can and disregarded as any value.
Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING of religion is useless.
I have learned important lessons from my lack of religion, does that count? No? Alright... I'll leave
With that said,
You have let yourself be convinced of something that is simply not true, and even in ancient times, those who claim a connectivity to "god", "god-kings" or "oracles", were simply mystics, who really didn't know any better.
The proper understand of Humankind and it's evolution is missing from your perceived notions.
And, without that exact understanding....You're lead to believe in a "GOD" that simply does not exist.
The most important lesson i learned from my religion is to force kids in believing in God so that my religion would go on forever=)
