Are you satisfied with your religion?

If you will be given a wealth or a good life would you exchange your religion for it? Many people despise their own religion just for the sake of material things. Too bad, material things will not be here forever but your belief that is based on the Bible will not be lost. Are you still satisfied with your religion? What is your religion and what do you like about it? will you stick to your religion forever or would you still care for your religion if you already have material things in this world? Share your thoughts here.

I believe in all nice things of all religion. Very often I attend any religious functions and hear the sermons delivered by the priests or gurus and filter in my mind all dedicacies and philanthropism for human kind. I appreciate all greats specialy those who would belive in work rather than speech. Once Shree Shree Ramkrisna Paramhongsadev has said to his disciple Swami Vivekananda, " Ye boy, will you keep yourself always merged into meditation? Dont you have anything to be done for your countrymen? Go to them as they are waiting for you." Once I was passing by a religious well decorated function organised by a missionary school. I stopped and kept listening to the precepts of Bible which was being delivered in a very melancholy voice. I got fascinated to them.

I was religious in my youth, but was never happy with my beliefs. I could not understand why religion and science differed at every turn. After much study and deliberation I gave up religion, and have been very happy and satisfied ever since. I believe religion is a Scam for making money, a Scam that over the years has allowed Christian Clergy to rape women and abuse children in the name of Jesus Christ, a Scam that is ongoing, a Scam that Christians see and know, but say and do nothing!

it is sad that many religions are using the name of God to gain wealth and other things in life. All based on personal pursuits including fame.. I cannot blame you for feeling such a way of dissapointement with all religions. But not all are the same. Not all are scam. Just use your Bible as your guide and it will guide you to the right religion.

I cannot blame why most people are dissatisfied with their religion. Sometimes religion is being used to gain money and other personal pursuits of its leaders. But certainly not all feel the same way. There are few people who are very satisfied with their religion, I'm one of those people. The reason why is that, all my questions in life have answers in the Bible. Our religion itself doesn't promote it's own interest and we are abundant with spiritual foods. We are not left confused for the answers we have in life.. and there are so much more reasons why I am satisfied with my religion. I guess the right question should be "Is God satisfied with your religion?" I'm leaving the answers to you.. the bible itself can tell if your religion is truly practicing what the bible tells. I respect all religions.

Each and every one of us has our own religion you don't have to change from one religion to another because all religions help us nourish our spiritual aspects in Life. It teaches us about God, His doings, His Goodness and His Bible Our religion are just their to guide us in how to live as God's children. If we're given wealth and Good life it doesn't affect religion at all because it just simply means that we were Blessed because we made our Best to achieve what we have, right? And we're just claiming what we prayed for. Now we have to remember that we were born naked and own nothing, whatever we have today is God's gifts and Blessings and we have to share it with others. And we also have to give it back to God in accordance with the bible through tightings. This is one ways of glorifying our Almighty Father for All the wonderful things that He has given us no matter what religion we belong.

I am satisfied with my religion.I don't think its any greater than other religion. But followers of religion think that others are ignorant and they are closer to god than others.I hate those people who don't have respect for other's religion. You are right many people of my religion are now following some other religion.I asked them,for the reason,they said they are exposed to better opportunities,now they earning more..and they are getting reservations in government jobs and education.They still believe in their previous religion,but they can't act like they are. Every religion has is its own importance Christianity-The largest Islam-Faithful followers Hinduism-Oldest Buddhism-most peaceful : : There are cons also...but I will not name them..that will make us I believe no one should switch their religion...we should take them like its our race.(No one can change their race(can fake)).There should be no religious discrimination(like there shouldn't be any racial discrimination).

I am glad you are satisfied with your religion.. Many people today are no longer trusting in their own religion and decided to change their beliefs for some reasons like material wealth, more comfortable life, wrong doings of religious leaders.. yeah some are changing their religion because they were offered a better opportunities or material things in exchange of converting. But if you found the truth in your religion, I don't think it's worth it to rely our future on the things this world has to offer.. all people should receive equal treatment.. I think one should change their religion if their religion is not basing their teachings in the word of God.

Too many if my people & mt family member die for their belief for me to abandon them just to get a "better life". In addition, I believe that those life is a temporary tool meant to enable us to become better and therefore makes us worthy to spend eternity with G-d. So will you give up on eternity for something temporary? Where is the logic in that?
