Does religion cause war?
Looking back at history, do you think religion is a foundation for disagreement and war?
Sure, if you study History books, we have a couple of incident of war between countries or people based on religion.
Absolutely. When there is any religion that sees its' beliefs as absolute truth, this is a cause to be concern.Religion is created by humankind, through their perception of an event or events. This creation, called Religion, often gives humans the right to rationalize killing people, because they see those of not like belief as going to hell. This is them acting as a god figure. They will pray that God, or whatever name they wish to give it, will help, as well justify them to 'kill' someone who does not follow their God's laws, while they are kept safe. Humans throughout history, and present time use religion as an excuse for their greed. It has always been, is now, and this pattern most likely will repeat. To take what they want, be it land or any thing else, humans will lay the foundation of their religion to conquer. Religion points to they are bad/evil and we are good, god-loving people, so in the name of God let us get some evil people. Sad, but true this statement is. In my view it is absolutely pathetic.
Do you think Renee, that the leaders of warring religions are afflicted by pride and this is why they try to enforce their views, and become frustrated when their work fails?
I do think pride and ego plays a lot in this, but also remember some totally believe their religion is the only truth, and act according. Them and us is a dangerous belief. We seen this with Hilter and others.
Yes, many wars and many people have died over differences in their religion.
No, people cause war, sometimes when they squabble over religion.
Since the inception of man, the majority of wars, if not all, were caused by mans belief in one religion as opposed to another. What each country or ruler was convinced that "their" version of God had told "them" was His will.
What I believe is that when Lucifer was cast out of heaven along with a third of the angels, they were cast down to earth, where they remain. We live in a Luciferian society that encourages confusion and conflict, this is how the devil wins souls, through confusion. God is not the author of confusion.
So let us seek God and His will!
Not necessarily the cause of every war ever fought, but I'd say certainly a large number of them. I mean the Holocaust was started over Hitler's hatred of Jews, which in turn was a major (though of course not the only) factor leading to World War II. A lot of the fighting between American settlers and Native Americans had to do w/ the settlers trying to force "white" values, including Christianity, onto the Natives. Then there's also wars in the Middle East, the Crusades etc.
Very true ElleBee, I hadn't considered the Holocaust in my question, but it is an important note to be made. Thankyou
Sorry, ElleBee, I disagree, the Jews were just a scapegoat. He had an insasitiable lust for power, and he hated every human that didn't fit into his ideals of blond, blue eyed Arayans.
Definately. When even different sects of the same Overriding religion cannot agree and commit violence against one another merely for being the branch of religion they are or are not, it does not even have to be two different religions.
Take the Northern Irish Protestants and Catholics for example - a battle of many many years that still has violence erupt from time to time. Or the Sunni and Shiite Muslims whose violence against one another we see on our news (well, here in New Zealand anyway) most days.
Perhaps you were merely thinking of history - all you need to do is look around. Unfortunately religion has had a lot to answer for in wars.
