I don't know how to answer this as I am a Christian, but I equate that to a relationship with Christ, not religion. I do not religiously do anything. So to me it would be humanity and not religion? I believe in touch lives. To encourage, support and meet needs.

I would rather its humanity. You see, with humanity there is an understanding that one to whom you are to do anything wheather good or bad is simply like you. Would you wish that some one puts a stick in your nose and push it deep and deep that you cannot breath.....? I don't think you would love that, and if you would, then pliz let me know so I can give you a better insight to prove to you that religion came after humanity and not the opposite...

Religion is man's way of getting to God. It is an integral part of humanity which is the complex nature of man.

Humanity without a doubt Humanity is proven, in existence, real - we are here! Religion is a personal choice etc, I am not knocking any faiths or religions or beliefs, but humanity means we humans are on the planet, religions vary enormously....

Religion teaches humanity and we are all born needing to be taught.

doesn't charity begin at home? I choose humanity because doing good things every day because you want to and know it is good is a kind of religion anyway. Could you really walk through a war zone to get to church and praise god? if he exists wouldn't he want you to help others?

Not religion but my relationship with God comes first. He is aware of what is happening and will step in to help humanity if it's His will. But Armaggedon is near so put God first

I choose God, over humanity and "religion". It all depends on what you mean by the term "religion". If you are meaning the rituals, observances, etc. then I may come out on the side of humanity. If you mean devotion to God and following His Word (yeah, Christianity!) with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. Then yes, religion has to come first. The essence of religion is to follow God with all that you have, essentially putting God first and trusting that His Grace is sufficient for you (in all endeavours and things that you put your hand to).

For me Its Humanity... Because it is the human being itself created the RELIGION, which is good if treated with good sense but for our "GOOD LUCK" all are in search of the black side of the same.... which shows the lack of HUMANITY.

this is a tough question.. for me humanity..if no humanity then thr is no religion..humanity is the base of any religion..many religious books teach humanity first i.e be kind to the fellow men..religion is the next step to become good human.
