Religion is one of the element of life that has connected the races and societies of the world for hundreds of years. It has given meaning to lives that may seem otherwise hopeless. Religion has provided for a universal language and culture among those who believe in a higher power. The spirit of being receiving the worship and praise may not be the same, but the practices are usually similar and serve the same purpose—to give direction, insight, courage, and a divine connection.
Most religions have a belief, a place to worship, the founder and origin of the religion, festivals and holidays, rituals and practices, a holy writing and of course, followers. It is one of the free-will of an individual to choose what religion he would follow especially now in today’s world that there are a lot of new religions evolved which seems people get to ask their own self even they have their own religion already, if the religion they are following is true to its faith and practices. Because of this diversity in religions, people now are confused and even gets to question their own faith and religion. Furthermore, because of its diversity, it is one of the reasons of conflicts or problems between countries and people because tehy fight over to whose religion is best and real. As a result, disharmony and disunity of people rule the world.
Religion is a choice. People will believe what they want to believe. They will make up a God to compensate for the guilt of their sins. Each culture is unique, and this plays a major role in their beliefs. Diversity in religion is understandable, and as long as there is respect for each other’s beliefs, then harmony and unity will be achieved.
We shouldn’t judge other religions solely because theirs are different from what we believe in. Let’s not be a hypocrite. Let us remember that we don’t have the right to judge others, only God can judge us. If we want to be respected, by our beliefs and practices, let us give other people and religion the respect and freedom they deserve. Religion supposed to provide mental peace and social solidarity, it supposed to make people better and united as one. Be careful of the actions we take and words we utter as well because sometimes our actions and words define what we get or learn from our beliefs. Whatever religion we believe, what is important is we share a common factor, and that is we believe in one Supreme Being, God. We are His children, and nothing can separate us from our Father. We must always and forever believe and follow Him and only Him.
