What do you mean by Religion? What is it’s role in our lives? Do we need it or not? These are some of the questions frequently asked in the 21st century.
- Why is it that the 21st century makes believing in God – a little more hesitant thing to do? The most genuine answer may lie in the unanswered questions asked about all the major religions of the world.
- In this scientific era, we tend to question everything that happens around us. We ask for a proof. And when it comes to religion, it bounds you to completely surrender yourself and not question the existence of Him or authenticity of miracles performed.
- As we go through the very first verses in the Holy book of Islam – The Quran, we can sense the tinge of spite towards people who wouldn’t believe in His existence.
- If God created this earth and every single person with his own hands, why would anyone not believe in Him? And because destiny is in His hands, why didn’t he frame the mind of the Non-Believers in a way to believe in Him? Why does he need to punish them and cause the heart disease to grow when he can stop it right from the start? Or is He partial to only some people and has no mercy for the others? Is this an image of an ideal compassionate God?
- If Jesus could resurrect people from dead, according to the definition of God (it is he who can create a living from dead and dead from living) he was God and not a messiah. And he publicly denies being neither. Anyways, if we believe that he could actually resurrect people, why did the mother of a dead young girl ask Ian Wilmult to bring her back? Why is it not ethical to use genetics to bring back the dead and ethical for Jesus to do that? He says,” You shall love the Lord with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind” if he could have reframed it as – You shall love every living creature on this earth with all your heart and with all your soul… We wouldn’t be facing evils like corruption, terrorism, etc.
- The world could have been a better place to live in, if He was as compassionate and moral as he claims to be because according to almost every religious text, He is the one who has created us.
