Hi everyone..! I'm just wondering why religious groups are making an effort of persuading people to join their group and each one is claiming that they are the real.. How come? What is your view on this? Thanks.. happy mylotting..

All religious groups declare that they are number one. If you look at the different splinter groups within any following you will also notice that God is amongst them only. God will have a problem if He comes down as predicted, He is going to be very confused. They are going to kill Him this time in a tug of war, pulling Him apart to their camps.

hello rayne, I have seen them roaming around my neighborhood for quite sometimes. the most recent people that I've seen walking around or giving leaf lets about stuff regarding religion are either the jehovas witness or the mormons, but i never heard of them saying that they're real. although i have seen and read article, sorry i forgot the title saying that they claimed they're the ones who can be saved if you don't choose their religion. I believe it's a matter of your own personal faith and experience and religion is also a guide to your own way of having a close relationship with God, regardless of the traditions. No Religion is perfect and some tend to hate others principles or beliefs, but the real deal comes down to you alone...with your way to giving yourself to GOD. and not to the religion itself. I am devoted to mine, because i believe there's a path that lead my own way, to save the world, my little way and Catholicism is the guide for me.

..well, yeah... for me, what matters is my personal relationship with God and not my religion.. after all, I believe that there is never a religion which was appointed by god to be the real one.. For me, religions are just like doors to the kingdom of God where we choose what way we could enter.. and we choose according to where we feel we could fit in without being force by other people..

Religion is very important for us believer in God. Because the bible says that religion is one of the basis for a person to be save in the judgment day. I don't know why everyone is claiming they right but the in reality the bible is always knows the right...If you read the bible you found out that those people claiming they are right are wrong...? What is your understanding about religion, my friend?

I don't think there is any importance of the religion in this world. People divide themselves by the name of religion. It is not the religion which came to this earth first. It is the human being which came to earth first then religion. So respect the humanity and respect other human being. Do not judge them by their religion.

I've only known one person who tried to persuade me in some way to join their religion or believe as they do.. he was a little annoying but he just felt happy about his faith.. years later I went through the same thing myself but have always known you can't persuade or convince anyone of anything, they have to learn it their self. Yet the faith gets passed on in one way or another, just by living life..

Religions will tell you that they have all your answers because they are selling themselves. There is money and power to be had through religion. Deep down everyone knows God and strives to understand. I find it funny so many count on others for their answers rather than searching for God on their own. Who do you think is going to find the real God first???

I suppose it depends on religous debate and how interested you are about any religion. But for obvious reasons, a passionate believer in a religion is going to have strong views which be evident in the discussion with another. As for joining a group, well this should be upto the individual, but the invidual will only 'buy' if that person is convinced of the tenets of what is being said. Are you religous? Have ever had this experience?

I believe this is important for everyone (whatever religion it may be) because it keeps every person grounded.It is something people believe and hold on to. Having faith in a religion makes a person feel that they belong to a certain community and not just an individual.
