Religion influences life in every possible manner but still people are getting away from religion. More and more people are becoming atheist and those who follow some faith too are away from the real essence of their religion and its preaching.We use to say Muslims are not peaceful, Christians have this and jews have that problem, why don't we accept that it is not due to religion that we are having so many problems in the world but because we are getting away from religion. If all of us, regardless of whether we are Muslims, Christians or Jews, had held our religion faithfully we would not have seen such a downfall as we are seeing today.
Religion influences life? Yeah right - and its all negative - its all destructive. Millions of dollars are being spent in America to demonize Muslims. The proganda war is being waged by the rich and powerful to promote 'a war to end all wars'. And this really might be the last war - because its going to kill us all. And what is this war about? Oil and the dominance of the US dollar as first reserve currency. These people are exploiting belief in god in exactly the same way as the first priest kings of ancient Sumer - where it all began - exploited their religion; to make themselves even richer and even more powerful.
It is you: the ignorati, who are making all of this possible. War will come because of you. Millions will die because of you.
When are you all going to wake up and grow up? Do we all have to die because you people lack the intellectual maturity to see through a six-thousand-year-old scam?
A faithful Muslim has to live by allah and mohhmmud's words and decrees... and that does not involve peace with the infidels and polytheists.
So following Christ's words, and Judaism's doctrines, may indeed bring peace.... but not if you involve the words and commands of allah and mohhammud.
unless we are all Muslims... then we could maybe get along... maybe.
Perhaps the Muslims would be more peaceful if the west pulled all of its troops out of their lands.
They are not going to; I know. If America pulls its forces out of Iraq at the end of this year the Iraqis will revert back to selling their oil for the Euro - and the value of the dollar will collapse on the foreign exchanges. Stirling will also follow the dollar down the toilet.
America should still pull out and take the hit. It'll get over it eventually.
We should all pull back out of Afghanistan as well and let the proposed oil and gas pipelines (because this is what it is all about): between Turkmenistan (with its horrendously brutal regime not reported anywhere in the press) and the sea be built by the Iranians across Iran. But that would mean that all of the oil and gas exported from the Caspian Sea wouldn't be sold for the virtually worthless dollar either. Oh dear. What to do? I know get Ben Bernanke to print several trillion more dollars (more debt for the American taxpayer) and use it to finance a war against somebody else. How about Iran? Don't they fit the bill?
You are confusing MORALS with religion.
Morals outdate religion. It appears that religion only attached itself to morals later.
Please understand that you need to learn more about the real world. You are allowing yourself to be duped!
Well lets see... The muslims want to kill the "christian american" because we are infidels. Back in the day, Christians killed anyone who would convert. The Jewish (Hebrews) killed many people to get the land God "promised" them.
Atheists killed....Ummm...Drawing a blank here...Little help...Someone....Anyone...???
If we dumped all the religions we would have peace for a change. It's all lies anyway.
How can you say that it is all rubbish, if this is all rubbish then you definitely do not believe either in the existence of God so how will you define life without God, religion and the presence of a Supreme being.
I have it on resonable authority that Earn is atheist but he doesn't need to be one to say and think as he does. I am not an atheist and I mistrust all religions. They are all a construct of man, have proven themselves open to corruption (even if you try to argue that this or that religion no longer acts corruptly, they all have blood on their hands with histories full of war to steal land and wealth while conveinently 'spreading the word of *insert your god here*). How can a divinely inspired book be used for evil? I mean if it truely is inspired by an all loving god that is? (I supposed it could be inspired by a hateful demonic 'God' since all these religious books are so easy to corrupt, or maybe no God is inspiring these books at all, men are just saying so because it gives them tremendous power and thus wealth, just think about how rich the world churches are, how much their buildings cost, and how many people could have been fed and educated with that money....)
I don't dis-believe in God, I just don't think God interferes in anyway or is like anything religion paints it as being. Basically, there may or may not be a God, it doesn't matter. No gods are needed to be a good person and a belief in God does not prevent you from being an evil person. What matters is what you do not what you believe.
Of concern is the fact that for one to be dedicated to a religion they have to do away with what is not allowed in that line of religion.(Christianity in my case). The moment you drift away from the biblical principles, you are drifting away from the religion and it is not easy to make a u-turn unless great divine intervention takes place. Most of the problems if not all, which are taking place are a result of peoples disobedience of the Lord Most High. Obedience is better than sacrifice. We should obey God and stick to his word for us to live the actual way we should.Amen.
Amen Evangelist. I agree that most of the problems we are having today are only because of our disobedience to God not because of the presence of religion in this world. No religion preaches, destruction, bloodshed, bomb blasts and any other evil act. Religions preaches peace and moderation which we lack today.
I have consistently advocated peace and moderation for my whole adult life without any supernatural help. All it takes is a little common sense and an interest in the welfare of others.
gulnazhamad - according to the Bible god told Joshua: when he was besieging the Canaanite city of Jericho, to 'kill every living soul therein'. This he duly did. The Israelites killed all the men and women: including the old, all the children; including babes-in-arms and even all the livestock (living soul means that which has life: not something that survives death).
God also raised up Hadad the Edomite king: as a sa'tarn (adversary - not demonic being) against Solomon for allowing effigies of other gods to be erected in his temple. The Edomite army slaughtered tens of thousands of Israelites and Judeans and they were all - according to the Bible - SENT BY GOD.
Read your Bible - the words of your god - its a bloodbath from beginning to end.
I believe that religion is a man made concept twisted enough far from the truth and easily exploited by people, which is why we see so much of intolerance these days. Yep, religion is certainly influencing the lives of many people around the world. Both in a good and a bad way!

On Facebook I know of at least two profiles where the people running them have offended some Pagans by comments they have made from a Christian viewpoint and links they have posted. I have seen this sort of problem before. So my question is: can Christians and Pagans be friends or do the belief...

You guys - I posted this in the Questions section, but because it turned into a full-blown discussion, HubPagers advised me to move it to Forums. Here it is:"Cult" is defined as a system of beliefs that doesn't work, but people cling to it because they fear "eternal hell"...
