Why There Is More To Religion Than We Actually Think
Religion is viewed as a social cultural system designated behaviors’ moral world views that relate to humanity. It helps shapes us and determine what we see as right or wrong. studies have estimated that there around 4200 religions in the world. But majoring to the five major world religions “Christianity Judaism Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam”. Their similarities is so radical that we cannot miss it in all the five religions proof of good interest towards our fellow brothers has being shown .
Religion also emphasis on working for the happiness of others especially the less fortunate this focuses on the happiness of many and benefit for all .Religion also focusses on the present rather than the past as everyone is at different places with different priorities in life .it defines success as aim for achievement rather than money as achievements bring rewards. Interaction with the community is key as life is always more of the people and a sense of community belonging and everything else falls in place. Religious laws dictate that everyone take responsibility for their action same to what most of us refer to as karma we all get what we ask for whether good or evil depending on our action. know yourself Imam Talib advises that “one who often thinks and reflects develops his foresight and vision”.
Studies have shown that the most religious people are prone to live a positive life, they are shown to take care of themselves as they are less likely to get into irresponsible behaviors they adapt a lifestyle that allows the existing of communication with their peers’ generosity, and honesty.
Religion has led to the building up of inner strength, in as much as we may not be religious in a way we surely follow some natural rules all linked up to one or another religious aspect a good example being that we take murder as much serious offence.
We also forgive our colleague, friends, teachers, and even a random stranger who just passes by and steps on us.
I tend to think that the biggest religion there is one that binds the whole world as one and that is the drive for the common good.
