Why the Religion?

Why the Religion

I’m quite sure when they started the concept of Religion, the aim was to bring peace and harmony in the society. Evolving from hunter-gatherers to a part of agrarian cultures, there was a need to practice self-control and patience. These social skills were needed to stay together to mature into better beings. The wiser men came up with the ideas of Religion and God.

The question arises, “Is God a delusion?”

Religion came into existence to bring people closer to each other. The question is not whether God exists or not. There has to be some affinity that binds living things together. An unknown, unseen force takes control of each phenomenon in this universe. And this particular force is named as God!

The man was an animal like other animals. He used to kill other animals, fight brutally for a piece of meat and roam about naked. Without any feeling of apology, he snatched, killed and forcibly acquired belongings of others. At that time, religion was introduced. One thing is clear that religion made humans better than the animals.

Today, the man who was one among the animals is far more superior than the rest of living creatures. He is a cultured animal who stays within his boundaries… Or you have something else to say? I know what’s in your mind.

The journey from animal to human was not easy. But the return journey is easier. I’m not overstating but the man is on his way to get lost in the wilderness again. I don’t endorse any religion but there has to be a control on the freedom humans enjoy. If sympathy and empathy do not occur naturally, that’s happening now, fear of the unknown should be there.

  1. Good one. Being from south, where you are chased from every angle for conversion from missionary people, I can say this is a nightmare. As long as you keep quiet, they push, and the moment you raise question they easily play victim. Add to that every govt plays into the minority cards based on religion and hope they soon change this with ones financial position!

  2. Ahh..Religion? what it is? Following a believe system, its a cult…following a moral code, its a culture, and Believing in existence of God, its Theism.

    But then ancient people, found magic, reverence and gratitude in nature and its force…and this believe, fear, respect of something unknown, something powerful created religion. Alas, following human greed for power, it become more and more political, hurting and killing the non believers and present society came into existence.

    So, for me..religion would be in its purest form…thriving in Philosophy, Spirituality regardless of belief in God or not. 🙂

    1. Imagine, the time when the concept of religion came into existence. It must be an idea of wiser men of the society to bring order in otherwise chaotic system.
      Alas, man is distorting things for his meanness.

  4. ‘Sarva-dharman-parityajya mam-ekam saranam vraja | aham tvam sarva-papebhyo moksayisyami ma suchah’ – Lord Shri Krishna, Bhagawat Gita

    Abandon all varieties of religion and just surrender unto Me. I shall deliver you from all sinful reaction. Do not fear.

  5. I agree with your thoughts. Religion was born to end the chaos and provide a system in conducting our lives in an orderly fashion, with more humanity… but alas at present time, for this very religion, people are slowly leading the society back to the chaos. This is one case where I wish the things don’t come back in full circle.
