What Is Religion
To most people religion offers salvation, enlightenment, and a place in heaven. Religion identifies a way of life. It tells one a complete code of life. Religion emphasizes the importance of being good and of being right. It condemns those who are bad and those who are wrong. Those who practice a religion strive to be perfect. If they fail, they may be condemned, and if they succeed, they may become intolerant of others. Many religions have many gods and some believe in the oneness of God. All religions try to make human beings better and reach at the highest level to live a good life.
It has been said that thoughts of death lead to the development of religion. It is difficult to imagine what need there would be for religion in a world in which no one ever died or became ill. All religions attempt to give answers to basic questions: From where did the world come from What is the meaning of human life Why do people die and what happens afterwards Why is there evil How should people behave, etc.
