Since the beginning of written history religion has been around to infulence us in many different ways. Some good but some bad. We led many wars and rejected many people. Religion has always been useful for keeping people moral, but in this era is it really necessary? I believe not. We have been living long enough to determined what is right and wrong without a call from GOD.
Sin, a big word in religion especially Christianity, but the sins described in Bible relevant to our century? The on going debate of gay marriage is an silly debate which Christians are losing. But if we were to Follow Christian belief into our laws then I should be condone to death for being rebellious to my parents. Now is that one of debate Christians sparked. No! And many either doesn’t know, or does not wish to talk about this part of Bible.
Religion has created violence within our society in the form of most destructive way, War. The crusaders were a group of soldiers who had on goal and one Gail only, to take back the holy land from Muslims in the area, but the war took a different turn as the soldiers became greedy. They started to take money and other valuables from the citizens of surrounding cities. Second expedition wasn’t any better as this time the soldiers were only thinking about stealing then to rescue the holy city.
Some can argue that Crusaders weren’t really Christians. Well then in more modern time, there is a war that has been going for few years. The war in Afghanistan had started due to many terrorist attacks started by Osama bin Laden, leader of Al-Qadea, which practices Sunni Islamist, a form of Muslim. Many say that war was started so that US can steal Oil off of the Middle east country but I believe there was unknown message that war started due to Religious differences.
Whether is simple as bashing some kid for being different or starting a full on war. Religion has become useless device of the past. It is no longer a double edged sword, it has dulled down to single edged sword. A one that has led millions of out family into Death. Religions has tried to say relevant into our life by taking different forms. Just Christianity itself has taken 100,000 different branches. Is it really necessary to have one? We dont, We want it for our pleasures, And even some pious people has realized that, people such as Flannery O`Connor shows this in her book A Good Man is Hard to Find.
