Religion is a violent system that destroys and breaks down societies. Examples: Christ... crucified by religious readers. Crusades.... killed many with opposing views.... Syria, Iran, 9/11, Airline hijackings, Greedy empires like Rome. Spirituality, Okay.... Religion..... I don't think so!
Islam interests me. That has such a large following, it would be interesting to know what all those people are thinking and believing. And a comparison to Christianity would be of interest. All good stuff.
I find Buddhism and Taoism interesting philosophically and far more tenable than the Abrahamic religions.
I find Norse, Greek, and Egyptian religion/mythology interesting for their poetic stories and sagas.
I find Christianity "interesting" in that I have trouble understanding how a belief system so logically untenable survived. I also have an interest in watching them since, as an American, the adherents of that religion often seek to affect the lives of all with their beliefs.
I must say, skeptickitten has a point. I first I was going to say Christianity; as this is we're I find my truth. But after reading her response, I do find myself intrigued with other religions for one reason or another. Maybe it is my cultural anthropologist coming out. God bless.
I think it's important to separate the faith itself from the ways some choose to practice it when we evaluate religions. I think all religious are interesting in and of themselves, just because they exist. But I also realize that many evil things have been done in the name of religion. Those who founded those religions or whose teachings those religions are based on would probably be horrified by some of the things that have been done supposedly for the religious cause. Much good has also been done as people seek to live out their faiths. It's sad that too often the bad seems to outweigh the good.
I used to work with.a Zoroastrian (they call themselves Zartushties) and we had many conversations about his religion. At NO time did he try to convert me or convince me. Zartushties don't proselytise. It was just conversation and information.That was more than twenty years ago but some of the things he told me about his faith and mode of worship were intriguing.
I believe in the Christ, Y'shua. Although, I find this difficult to answer. I am not religious, I do not like doctrines, they fool & control people, robbing them or the truth. I believe in one source of all that exists. Only one. Everything comes from him, he is positive energy in pure form. Nothing within "this" force is negative. To me that one is a spirit. Just like we & all living souls have a spirit. I believe angels exist. Pure ones & impure. So, my Alpha is the father of Abraham. He, to me is everything pure, perfect, positive, holy. I see him & I love him. I know he regrets things that have happened, I know he's sorry. His purpose was for GOOD. It was not his plan for evil to be upon us. Sorry to those that don't want to hear this. I do not believe in "hell", eternal torment. Everlasting life in perfection is what I see. & how does anyone have the right to say who will live or die. Peace.
