All the religions in the world has lot changed from those of exponents of that particular interest people chaged the rules of that religion accordign to their conveniance and to make profit by taking advatage from people.i think all religions are developed from only one religions.diferent people from different areas somehow learn it and the y spread it to different coutries in their way t omake people understand .all religions lead us to god.love,truth,non-violence etc.if one folloes really the rules of the religion u can find u cant live in this world that is why no body is following religious rules.hi..hi..

Also religions are made so that the priests can have a way of living .it is made so that people can fight together and the almighty is so bored of peace in the world he desperately want ot have some kind of entertainment.also he is fed up with the greenery of trees so he thought why change the colour to red .the colur of blood .that is how one is seeing more blood .

Your opinion reflects the present state of religion. Even religion is becoming commercialised and is being used for the mere personal benefit of few of the person. Manoj you are right upto a certain extent.I'll appreciate if you can throw some light on "what was the need of religion; why did human being thought of making different religions" Thanks Manoj for responding

I strongle feel that some saints in olden era might have accidently when he closed his eyes and thought he might have went into the state where budha or osho went .then he relised that we came from onething and we are one.and in order to prevent the violence which was prevailing at that time he tried to spread this message of non violece and love.but we are humans we killed him and those people who killed him made use of his message to make profit .i think so .so much of madness after these religions lts really funny.

I believe in a lot of instances religions were and are created to control the masses. If we are all on board with the same thinking then every thing will run smoothly or should, Every thing in our live would be dictated to and about. we would be told what and when and where and how we are to live our lives, and the consequences for doing so or not doing so.

If you think about it and do your research , I am pretty sure you will notice that most religions have a lot of rules and regulations, do's and even more don'ts. Even the ten commandments are a list of rules and regulations very spefic to be exact. but cover a lot of area.Then we have the so called books from god, again to be shown, told and followed by the believers. and again the rules and regulations and the consequences of following them or not. There is actually not much about life in there just what you should do and should not do. Even back in the time of the cave dwellers there were spirits that guided the people, they believed that every article in the world had a spirit, the wind the water the fire and so on. Some kept the group safe and others were danger, If some one plays on your fears, and tells you that if you do this or believe that all will be well for you, but if you don't believe and do not adhere to the rules then you will be cast out of the group, community, land and even life itself. . And all of this is based on what? The belief of my fathers father father and so on and so on. And then it comes time to choose, You have to rely on your own beliefs and see if they are viable or do you look at what others have to offer, it all comes down to believing what you will and need in your life.

Every human being maintain a belief. May be his belief of doing certain things can be better and the same thing the other person things it is bad. In this way a certain group of human generally staying in one geographical arena has developed some similar thoughts of belief and disbelief. And this thoughts were made together by some genius person to make it a religion. The religion thus born. Now you can find every religion of people spread all over world but it was not at the time when religion developed. E.g. you see Budhism, Muslims and many other which developed from some same thinking people and later by some genius saint make up it as a religion. The forms varies with area, locality, weather and many factors. The need of religion was to make some same minded people together so that we can struggle with the rest of world. That's the main need why religion developed. But today religion is becoming a factor which separates people to people which is not good.

I find in my opinion that should not exist religions, because Jesus didn't say the name of any religion.He taught us to love the people as to us same and he/she never said that religion to proceed.We should follow the love.He said love God on all of the things and the neighbor as to you same, you will make that and you will be saved.

Religion is man's way of making a god in our own image. Christianity is a living relationship with the true living and loving God, Jesus Christ. He came to earth to show us God the Father in the flesh. He took our sins on the cross to reconcile us to the Father and rose again in the power of the Holy Spirit to sit at the Right Hand of the Father until it's time to come for His children. Then, at the end of the age, He will return to this earth to rule and reign in righteous. Then, and only then, will there be peace on earth. We don't need religion, we need Christ.
