Is religion evil? There have been many religions that have lived and then died out. Religions change over time and have formed today as different types of religions with different gods, even goddesses. Hinduism, Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, and Islam have become the dominant religions of the century. The religions of today are nothing like the religions of ancient times. Judaism seems to be the first ancient religion which is monotheistic, one individual God. According to a website called “religious tolerance”:”Hinduism is generally regarded as the world’s oldest organized religion. It consists of “thousands of different religious groups that have evolved in India since 1500 BCE.” 1 Because of the wide variety of Hindu traditions, freedom of belief and practice are notable features of Hinduism.” And, the many forms of practices done in other countries still exist because people want to hold on to what their parents have learned from their ancestors. Christianity has changed so much that it does not even entail the true Christ, the true messiah. The institutions today have fallen from their roots as true believers in The Lord. People have fallen short to this kind of fellowship that started out in meeting in closed doors and meeting each other in our own homes. No, it has become institutionalized in a form of a building where people cannot be themselves, cannot grow spiritually and eventually abandon their religion, or faith. Fellowship is not neglecting the meeting of each other.
Now, is today’s religions, especially Christianity evil? what is evil, and what is the good? How can one define the good, how can how can one distinguish between the good and the evil? The good, or good? Is religion still evil even if it leads to death? Would someone die for their belief? Many have died for what they believe in, but to believe and do what one believes, if it brings positive results and it is expressed in actions, not merely in words then one can see that it brings the good in life, and life can be lived to the fullest with happiness and doing right. It is better to be thrown into prison for doing right than for doing wrong. It is better to die for something one believes and does than to die doing wrong. What is the wrong then, stealing, slander, breaking the law that the local authorities set forth. Disrespecting the cities authorities. In other words, not doing the commandments of God, and applying what it says. Respecting local authorities that have the right to defend and protect its people. Even if there is no peace there has to be order, even if it impedes on our freedom of religion and the freedom of assembly. Or, the laws that reside in whatever country people live.
