Do We Need Religion?

After all, what do we need religion for? We have seen that in many instances, religion made life worse rather than make it better. Why should we stick to something that doesn’t improve life and make Earth a better place for everyone, with equal opportunity? Well, we just shouldn’t!

If something is making things worse, we should avoid it and look for something that makes life better instead. That should be a common sense rule. Our goal is to make life better for ourselves and, hopefully, for others as well.

So what do we use religion for? What purpose does it serve so we can examine it can really make life any better? In essence, religion is about God. If we have an accurate perception of God, He must be Just, Merciful, Loving, Forgiving (all among the 99 Names of Allah in Islam), therefore religion, as it serves God, should also be about all these beautiful values. If this is what religion can give us, who in the world wouldn’t seek it?! Very simple, but not really as simple as it should be!

What happened is that religion became self-centered whereas its goal should be all about God. Well, as I say religion, we better think “people”, since religion is just a tool. You can use a knife to kill or you can use it to cook! You can use money to help the poor and you can use it to buy weapons or buy drugs!

The real problem with religion is when people focus more on Religion than on God Himself! That’s why we have seen throughout all of history religion being used to evil ends. People used their holy books to justify all kinds of injustice. People with dark hearts will find any and every excuse for their deeds. If not religion, they’ll just join the Mafia! They will just try to find a justification for their self-centered and selfish pursuits wherever they can find it.

Which comes down to this, the problem is not with religion as much as it is with us, with people! People who focus on God, will pick the good wherever they find it, will stick to the things that draw them closer to their Beloved Lord. But once our commitment to God weakens and our ego takes over, we will use religion for the exact opposite of God. You will see people worshiping their religion more than they worship God. As I listen and look at extremists from all religions, I always see the same things, and I am astonished how much those “enemies” really have in common!

There are brothers in God, all believers of all faiths who have Godly feelings in their hearts, who want to see everyone having their rights and dignity, who focus on love and cooperation rather than on differences. On the other hand you have brothers in Ego, they too serve the same ego even though they fight and curse one another, they’re one family whether they like it or not!

Religion is about God. We use it as a tool to help us get closer to Him. We know are closer to Him when we see our hearts increase in Love, in Mercy, in Forgiveness. If we see ourselves instead becoming angry and hateful of others, we have to stop and realize that we’re serving something other than God. We shouldn’t think so much of religion, we should just think of God, and seek help and insight from religion.
