I noticed not only on this forum but everywhere i look on internet or the real life the same message: We must do this or that.Who are we and why do we must do the same thing ? One is saying "we should get rid of religion "...well it looks to me he just got rid of his and he is afraid he will be alone in hell. Another one is saying "everyone should start to believe in God".That`s nice but your God gave every person free will so shut up. Another one is saying "We should make the world a better place so if everyone believes the same thing that will be easier ".First if we all will have the same beliefs the world will be a terrible place.One cannot create culture if he has no different beliefs.Copies will only create copies.Then if you are religious, let`s say christian why do you care about this world ? The whole idea is the world goes bad, Jesus will come one more time and that`s it.And if you are an atheist then no matter how the world will look like then one day you will become food for worms so why are you bothering to change it? What is your opinion, can`t you live knowing there are a lot of people who think different ? Is this the new religion of the world to kill our personality and turn everyone into "we" ?

No it is not a new religion or conspiracy, it is a linguistic convention. It may be offensive to those who are not native English speakers but if is simply the way modern English is spoken.

A linguistic convention.That`s nice Chiang Mai but tell me what do you mean ? One is saying : We should all give up on our morality because that is real freedom.How should i read that ?

I was commenting on the use of"we" in English conversation. If you want to give up what you view as morality in search of freedom I think you are on the wrong track.

It doesn`t matter what i want.What did i understood wrong, that is important.You think when one is saying "We should do this "that means something else ?

We must not allow one to kill our personalities , Yes, I tell you Christ will come again approached the very date of his return, we should be closer to our God , has approached the end, we have to work so that we can be one of the winners in the Hereafter

Hi samar and thanks for your answer. I think you felt this too because i`ve seen you have been bullied sometimes by people who think we should all believe the same thing.

They can not influence in my resolve, what troubled me whom they insult my book and my messenger? I sought an excuse for them, they do not know him , if they knew him even knew him loved him loved him , and follow him . But they repeated what they watched and read in media only without thinking . thank you iuliuxd .

Hi iuliuxd, You have a very interesting discussion here and you make a good point. We are not all the same and the world would be a boring place if we were. I still don't think that we need religion to believe in God or that life is without beginning or end. Yet, I guess I have to live with the fact that most people don't agree with me. We all know that if all the world were one religion, people would get bored and immediately start a new one. Accept the fact that we are different and that it's not going to be 'we' for a long time yet. Blessings.

Hi Pose and thanks for your answer. I don`t get upset if people believe whatever want to believe, it is their life and everyone should enjoy it without being forced to accept or get rid of any point of view.

While I do think that there are some times that you have to think in terms of a mass, I really think that the vast majority of the time, it is more important to think about yourself as an individual. With that said, I grew up in a family that was quite religious, however I also had a lot of experiences in my life that differed from typical experiences and for that reason I have developed my own personal set of beliefs.

Dorannmwin thanks for your answer. I believe thinking in terms of a mass is the problem. For example one will tell us : We are too many, the Earth is overpopulated. Well if he really believes that he should do something.Don`t just say it, free your place. So in fact he is saying "I`m special but you are too many " Same when one is telling you what to believe : We should get rid of religion or we should all believe in God means "I already know what`s right and wrong and the rest of you should accept my beliefs" .

The world is crazy. There is no answer. Everyone has their opinions but they think their opinions are always right

God gave everyone a different view to guaranty mankind a larger view than any one person could have. Further,with these different views, God uses our interaction with others to teach us all great lessons. If it came down to the entire world thinking exactly alike, God would stir the pot, bring in some fresh students, and straighten that mess out. If we really look at this world with understanding, we see that it is a Masterpiece. Until we have great wisdom,mankind's total control of this world would turn into a real mess.

That`s nice if you believe that Bird but the world looks pretty well for someone who does not believe in God too. Not to mention that when you think from a christian perspective if this world is a masterpiece think about how the world before the fall of Adam looked like.

There are different religions in this world and it’s up to you where you want to be and what religion will you choose if you want to convert. It’s your choice. People think differently and that what makes people misunderstand one another. Some don’t believe in Gods because if there is God then why there are lots of messes in this world like pieces that are difficult to rearrange perfectly.
