Questioning Week: Religion
There probably several hundred devisions of Christianity in the world. We have Catholic, Pentecostal, Baptist, Protestant, Angilcan and our very own home bred, Finger of God church just to mention a few. I personally belive my church is the right one and you probably believe yours is the right one so how can you ever be sure?
More than that we also have several religions. How can anyone be sure that theirs is the right one? Anyway all major religions have serious skeltons in their back ground. Christians had the crusades in which million of "barbarian" people were killed, Muslims have a more mordern version of this in which they bomb theyselves and others in the name of God. Both owned slaves. With all this how can anyone be sure about anything?
Anyway almost all mordern religions are less than 3000 years ago and if you believe like I do that we where created atleast 7000years ago whom did we worship back then? How did we do it? Why did we stop? And what about indiginous communities on Africa before importation? These are matters of faith I agree but still when you doubt you ask these same questions. And couldn't religion just be some sort of control(like in the Matrix) to keep society and human being spiralling out of control? And when does faith have to stop and logic keep in? Peace!
