I wonder if ppl are just so afraid of death and what's Beyond if nothing that's why we come up with all these crazies religions

Report as

Yes. Especially hundreds and thousands of years ago, people had a habit of attaching supernatural explanations to things they couldn't even begin to understand.

Yeah I suppose I am.. Grown up Christian but with science and all the different religions it seems like everyone just made everything up and no one knows

Jacqui...I think u make some interesting points. It's natural to think and wander and question and/or even imagine whatever. There is absolutely nothing wrong or bad by doing so. If we care enough to learn and try to understand all things we can also have the potential to be part of the discovery of these mysteries that have evolved til today. Without this process of inquiring about...how will you get to where you are destined to be one day?

That is exactly why. I read a quote once, i dont remember exactly how it went, but it said religion is like ibuprofen for society. All it does is make death seem less tragic, and make sense of all the unknowns. (Although about none of them make sense)

I even like to believe there's a god I can't say there isn't cuz a little part of me believes there is... But the other part is like wow at any moment my mind shuts off and nothing scary

Something in your heart has to be making you do the right thing everyday. If it wasn't people would be taking and doing whatever they want when they want worse than they do now. I believe in GOD just think people uses him to there advantage way to much. GOD loves you and wants yo foryou. Jesus paid for our sins the past, present and future. Your still wanted no matter what. Church is not ment for the rich and the perfect, its a hospital for the sick and the broken. Look on youtube for why I love jesus but hate religion. He says it perfect. a must see.

Listen to that video youtube. Why I hate religion but love Jesus. Its not about trying to force anything on you just have an open mind it my answer your question.

Just seems like religion is all made up it all sounds crazy... I get ppl believe in it for hope and a reason to live... But it's hard to believe when there's so much war and hate in the world because ppl believe such different things

There will always befelt fighting they were doing it when jesus walked the earth. Look what they did to jesus. People are sinners by nature. The things going on today is just as normal but you only hear what they want you to hear. There are great people doing awesome things but you mostly will hear about the bad. People fight about there religion because nobody wants to hear that what they gird there life by is wrong. People just need to worry about themselves and their family and respect each other no matter their beleaf.

People can believe what they want to believe but reality is reality. What happens after we die is reality. Thousands and thousands of people have died and come back to share...and even atheists who did not believe! They all say, the affterlife is the "real" reality. It's like we are living in a dim glass on earth.
Report as
Jacqui, there is nothing wrong in questiong. We all do and we all should to help us dig deeper and understand and have an answer as to what we believe. Don't give up yet on Jesus. You have to decide if Jesus died on the cross for you or not. Is he alive and well and wants a relationship with you or not? I have found my answer but you have to seek yourself. :) Knock and the door will be opened. Seek and you will find.

The answer is in your questions. There are many difficult questions that are most easily answered if you could just find them in a book. One, reliable, widely accepted book. That would be nice. This is why that book exists. But it is a different book in every corner of the world, and that's a slight problem. Always has been.

All those books are written by someone though I could write a book and then would that be the bible lol
Report as
Some people still do that. Look under Scientology....
But that was the point of my answer, yes :-)
Report as
Yeah I've heard about that.. I find it bizarre how ppl can be sucked into weird cults
Report as
Yeah. These people put their entire life in someones hands, no matter how bizarre.
I guess that putting your faith into someone is not always the best option. At least, nobody that I ever met was always right and I don't expect to meet anyone any time soon.

I think your thoughts on religions and the afterlife are Interesting. Its a different perspective for me. It got me to stop and ponder the reality of your statement, if even for just a brief moment. Thanks for that ;) besides it's what you're supposed to do in order grow and learn. How else are we supposed to know where we belong in this life. Don't ever stop wondering and sharing.

That is certainly a driving force of religious belief. Examining many theistic faiths shows a penchant for promises of a big payoff after we die. This is just predatory, and impossible to prove. Religion has been an attempt by little traveled, poorly educated ancients to answer the big questions of life with only their superstitions and imaginations to draw from. That's why faith is required, knowledge is cast aside, even belittled. Decide for yourself with the tools you have.
