As for me Religion is like a culture in our world, ever places have a different religion, such as Christian ism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam and many more, any way where does the religion came from?, in Christianity there's no such word as Religion that was written in The Holy Bible, that's why many Christians are confuse what to do or where to join because of too many sects. in some country Religion is one of the reason why they have a gap or even war because of it, some are killing each other because of difference of belief, the point is, is this the reason why people create a religion, or there is other deeper reason that's why we had all different religion?

dollardollar! there are two kinds of religion. true and false, and most churches teach the latter. surprised, eh? more and more people are staying away from their churches, mainly due to insufficient spiritual food from their clergy. they find it uninteresting, dry, unable to satisfy their spiritual hunger. they suffer from the famine foretold by the prophet amos, a famine, not for bread, and a thirst, not for water, but from hearing the words of god. because they receive little assist- ence from their religion, they give up on it. there are those as well who reject organized religion for financial reasons, especially in lands where members are required to pay a church tax. many ask themselves this question: why should my hardearned money go to the church? some are put off by the church's enormous wealth and power. the church's wealth may have led it to give too uch attention to material things and not to take faith in christ seriously enough.

I won't tell the definition of religion because i'm sure you knew it already. But i want to tell about why there's alot of different religion in this world. You must realize that there's also alot of different country, human race, etc in this world. So that's not a strange thing if there's alot of different religion. Let's make it in easy way, we know that Buddha was born in India, Jesus was born in Israel, Muhammad was born in Arabian. Those messenger of God come from different place too. But the fact is all of them are same in vision about the God's truth. So i think we shouldn't differenting each other on their religion. That's personal rights. Have a nice day and happy mylotting.
