Religion by definition is something related to faith and belief. So it is more on to the ‘way of life’ because it is a persons faith and beliefs that determines the way he lives. Therefore, religion has a greater impact on lives of humans.
Now the question is, does your religion helps you molding up into a better human being. By a better human being, I mean one who cares for another, and one who doesn’t hinder the peace of his brother in the slightest way possible, considering them to be humans rather than religious. This is something that requires attention. !
Religion somehow have become a weapon to mistreat humanity which further goes on to an extend of taking lives of people. Is this the real intention of ‘religion’ ? Is religion made to guide humanity or mislead them?
Well, if religion provides you with the way which helps you live in brotherhood helping your fellow beings regardless of their religion, standing away from things that hurts them, spreading peace among them, then you should definitely follow your religion. But, if its the other way, its hard time you need to seriously think about your religion.
We humans are creations. Only the Creator knows what is best for his creations and what serves to be the worst. As a machine created needs a manual to operate it smoothly, so is the humans that we need a manual to perform well which are out there in the form of scriptures. The perfect guidance comes from nowhere other than from the authentic manuals.
Religion is completely personal and everyone has the right to choose their own that we really don’t have to bother about other’s and we shouldn’t. Its ok to have diversified beliefs but its never ok to discriminate people on any basis; be it religion, color or anything. Separating people on the basis of religion and any other factor cannot be tolerated and is one of the worst things we could do.
Imagine a world where people live each other without considering his or her religion. That eliminates most of the problems in our world. Living in peace without fearing others because of religion is the best thing we could have in life. One who is more religious have to be loved and respected by all, but in reality, what happens ? The more you are religious, people are afraid even to get closer to you. That happens either because of the wrong interpretation of our religion or we have failed in picking up the right one. The best of the religion is that which makes its believers care for their fellow beings irrespective of religion.
There are people and leaders who care and lend services for others irrespective of religion. The common factor which unites them is humanity and religion is one such cause to get you there. They are the actual practitioners of religion and its time for the world to emulate them. Humanity which finds its non-existence in today’s world, is the greatest feeling we have to posses within us and true religion helps us achieve it.
So, its time that we think about our religion seriously as the intention behind every religion is to help us lead a better life and stay away from things that hurts others . In that way, religion exactly provides us with the ‘way of life’ that deals with what is better for us to adapt in our life and to avoid that hurts us as well as others. Therefore it is necessary to have a religion which helps you find the exact way of life and I may go on to the extend of saying that religion is a must to get succeed in our life.
Finally, to the question is religion a necessity translating is way of life a necessity, the answer is obviously a big YES. Only through the perfect guidance that we could lead a better life, and religion paves the way for it. !!
