Today there is no doubt there is less peace in the world as there used to be. The issue of Religion in the world today is something else.
And there is no indication there world be a solution anytime soon, hence the need for this post.
No doubt the world is evil. Every now and then there is one church springing up around the corner, a Mosque been set up, and several worship centers of all the religion in the world are not left out in this growth.Ironically as these religious establishments increase, the evil in the world does same. This to me is a shame. Needless to say, this increase in religion setups comes with religious modernism.
People now tweak their faith to suit and be convenient for them, to this end the purpose of faith is defeated because they really don’t understand what religion is.
WHAT IS RELIGION?
Religion is the belief in a God or gods. This is a short dictionary definition. But I actually know religion is much more than this. Religion is simply a way of life; you don’t only believe in a God/gods without applying your faith in him to your everyday life. Mere belief and Zero practical is meaningless. And this is where the misconception lies.
To illustrate let us Examine a man (say Jack) Going to a Mosque or church he meets a beggar on his way, ignores him & dashes straight into the church. Jack is in the instance just being religious not practicing his faith somewhere in the Bible Peter, James, & John told a crippled Man “Silver & Gold I have not, but what I have I give unto you” That is the kind of lifestyle expected of one who is a Christian. Religion is a way of life. It is in the way we live & what we do, it’s more than just confessing this is typical of religion modernists. Who are now everywhere in this evil world.
WHAT IS RELIGION MODERNISM?
This is simply modernizing laws to suit the lawmaker. religious modernists make laws to suit them in more ways than one, these are the tools they use in exploring their unsuspecting victims and this is the major cause of the evil in the world today.
This world is evil not because religion is evil but because of the modernists thereof and this has so put sin on the increase
One problem of sin which modernists have amplified is blindness. most have so exalted themselves that their followers are now blind, so called blind to the truth, to this end they become puppets, living at the mercy so-called spiritual leaders.
Another problem of sin is that it shuts the ears & eyes of the great father above; the good book recorded in Isaiah, “call upon him while he may be found…when he is near”(Paraphrased)
there are over 43 major religious in the world todayAs I stated earlier, one would expect the evil world to be purge of its filth as these religions multiply, but
As I stated earlier, one would expect the evil world to be purged of its filth as these religions multiply, but
sadly the reverse has been the case, the hypocrisy has so risen that there is almost nobody with non religious names.
For instance some denominations in Christianity would rechristen you (i.e. baptismal name) when you are baptized, and once this happens most people abandon their non religious names for the new ones (my baptismal name is David), even this has added to your hypocrisy.
FURTHER NEGATIVE IMPACT OF RELIGIOUS MODERNISM/MODERNISTS
These people don’t only put a gap between the followers and God; they also cause problems in their society. I’ll quickly highlight four problems they pose to our society.
They spark up war & disorder among their followers & those who didn’t support then.Remember the 9/11 in theU.S? Boko haram in Nigeria, Alqaeda , Islamic state (isis), war in iraq, iran, isreal e.t.c. These are typical examples.
MISUNDERSTANDING BETWEEN THEMSELVES:
If they are in a group, before you know it they would have come up with different ideas, misunderstand themselves and ultimately split.
The bible stated that he who would not work should not eat. It also talked against laziness “not been slothful in business…” but this modernist would make their followers lazy by several means.
They preach segregation & sentiments. In an office, once there are members of staffs of different religions, roles would no longer be appointed on merit, but favoritisms and religious sentiments.
IS RELIGION IN THE WORLD TODAY EVIL
If you ask me if religion in the world today is evil I’d say no emphatically, religion is not evil (at least not Christianity, that I know of) but peoples attitude towards it is evil.
Love is the message of the bible, but we’ve modernized it & no longer do we preach love.
The world is evil, not because religion is evil, but because people have evil mindset towards religion or use it to perpetuate their evil desires. Maybe if we renew our mind, we’d have a better world to live in.
