The Great Illusion of Religion

in Religion

Anyone can call himself a Christian, Muslim, Hindu or even a Buddhist, but you are going to need to put a little more effort into studying your religion, if you're planning on removing the great illusion of it.

I know, anyone that tells you, that your religion is wrong, bad or that your religious text is wrong, could have some serious problems. These people could be under the influence of evil or somehow misguided and needs to be put on the right track.

After years of being taught that anyone who speaks against your religion, is a bad guy. We need to start reprogramming ourselves and start seriously looking at the evidence that these people are producing. Is it true or is it false, there's only one way to find out, and that's by doing a little bit of research on your religion.

How long is it going to be, before we start to investigate our religious text and even our religions? We can easily assume that our church leaders are honest, good people and would never, ever in a million years, even think about lying or misguiding their congregation, but this could be wrong also.

If you look at your religious leaders as people who are extraordinary and truthful, then you should be able to ask them simple questions about your religion and have them answer your questions, in detail. Any religious leader who chooses to give you an answer like, you need to find out for yourself, that's not important, I'll get back with you on that, and never does or brushes you off in another way, could be living in a religious illusion.

Your religious leaders might even know the truth and have the ability to answer your questions, but if they answer them correctly, their jobs could be at risk. Sometimes it's better to bury your head in the sand, and brush off your congregations answers, when your livelihood is at stake

Only by seeking the truth, will you ever be able to find it. Only by asking the tough questions, will you be able to get answers that can change or impact your life and those whom you love so dearly.

Think about this for a moment, there are plenty of religions around the world that you do not believe in and I could probably be safe in assuming, that you probably think that these other religions are stupid or even that someone could have made them up. You yourself would never believe or follow another religion, because you know that your religion is the only way.

With that in mind, how do you know for sure that your religion hasn't created a religious illusion and these other religions are right and you're wrong?
