Religion has always played an important role in world cultures and their development. All religions are very different because people also differ in their ethical level and worldview. It is believed that the gods of different religions seem to be fighting for the most important position. Historically, there is a lot of truth in this idea: religions have established themselves in some places by war and coercion. In the past, religion has had a great influence on the formation of various cultures. But are people less religious today? Yes and no. The popularity of horoscopes, divination salons, and other future predictive phenomena suggests that if people no longer believe in God, they believe in anything.
Which Religion Is Better?
Is any religion more real, brighter, and better? Some argue that all religions lead to God, but the same question can be asked the other way: do all paths from God or faith lead to people? It is a criterion for recognizing the main principles of any religion or religious activities. If religion is directed against humanity, it is certainly not right and distorts the concept of faith. If the doctrines of the faith do not lead to people, then it is understandable that one will not get to God in this way. Such a worldview is particularly characteristic of various small sects that have a distorted understanding about what is good and what is bad. Faith, which leads humanity to God, cherishes human dignity, helps society to develop harmoniously, makes it more cultural. However, if we are talking about the main religious that have the biggest communities around the world today, it cannot be claimed that one is better than another. The key principles of them are telling about the good qualities, love, faith, and hope. The competition comes from different interpretations and people wants to prove that their unique way of understanding the religion is the only truth.
True God and Angry Idols
The ancient Greek religion is often based on the negative qualities of the gods: the fight for power, envy, and revenge. It must be acknowledged that some elements of the Greek religion also influenced the Christian thinking. It is not uncommon for the Christian God in the consciousness of the people to be consciously colored by the attributes of the Greek supreme god Zeus. The well-known myth of Prometheus, where Titan Prometheus disobeyed the will of Zeus for the sake of human well-being, kidnaps fire from the gods of Olympus, brings the culture and well-being of gods to mortal people. Finally, he is punished by Zeus. As a result, people still understand the God as someone who is punishing them.
God the Creator
The famous apostle of nations Paul, whose great contribution is that today we have a world based on good values. He showed a beautiful example of understanding and dialogue between different religions. He claimed that other religions could also be the discovery of God and the key to goodness, love, and peace. However, if the Bible is analyzed, it is said that God is the creator of the world and everything else what is in it. Such a God is called the Creator and this fact emphasizes the good side, which does not want to punish humanity but giving beauty and life to people. The same idea is spread by all major religions.
