I think some of us do. There seems to be something deep in the psyche of a lot of pweoplwe that needs an external source for how rto live the Golden Rule.
If God exists and established one for our benefit and prefers that we freely use it, it could be quite beneficial.
I won't argue whether or not that means it qualifies as a "need."
Religion has killed more on the planet,
than any thing. If you were looking to wipe
out human kind this is one way to go.
Well not anymore, it was created to answer the things we didn't know about, gravity, sunlight, planets, etc.
Born without religion- Die without religion. Was only in a religion growing up because of what you call "brainwashing and indoctrination"
Maybe a finer point on who this "we" is.
Humans invented their religions to serve some purpose, that it lingered so long must have filled some need, given some type of reward.
Ever wonder what that need is intended to be and who exactly reaped the reward? Look hard at any major religion or religious cult and it should be obvious and disturbing.
I will conclude that we need neither religion nor those who push it on others.
Depends. If they wanted to be ruled, let them have a religion. If they want to be free, then let them be
Religion is like a false hope
That you will be reunited with
Friends, pets ,loved ones passed ,,,,,,, no ..
I have seen some stuff in my house to make me question
Religion...... It's all crap ...
Live your life now .
You will never get a second chance
I have to admit .. I am a believer that God exists but I do not condone the beliefs and practices of "the church" . Not a believer in dogma.
Most of you won't understand there is a difference.
Belief is individualistic .. everyone believes in something whether or not it is God, or spirituality or even that there isn't a God .. its unfair to say that others are wrong if they don't believe what you do. To each their own .. as long as it does not adversely affect others.
I personally believe that the church's have twisted and compromised the Word of God .. it has become adulterated. That is my belief .. and mine alone. I am not saying everyone should believe what I believe .. and I truly resent anyone who tries to dictate to me what THEY think I should believe because it's what THEY believe.
The bible tells us "Happy are those conscious of their spiritual need". Whether we want to believe it or not their is a higher power, our creator. We exist because of him. I do strongly believe that their are too many religions in the world that exists solely to mislead everyone away from the one true God.
No we do not need any false religion, which has caused so much hatefulness and suffering. People need to know what the true religion is and how to practice it, because it means our life. 1John 2:15-17, "Furthermore,the world is passing away and so is its desire,but the one who does the will of God remains forever."
no not everyone.
Do we really need religion?
Do we really need audio cassette tape recorders? At one time there were so many to choose from, but now nobody sells any. The demand [need] for them has vanished because the role they played has been taken over by better more reliable equipment.
But religions are still here. In fact there seems to be more of them on offer. That can only mean that there still is a need for religion. It also means that, so far, nothing has appeared that is compellingly better and more reliable at answering the questions and serving the needs that religion does.
So, unbelievable and unacceptable though it may be to many, the undeniably correct answer, from observation, is that yes we do really need religion, still.
