Are you distressed about crimes committed in the name of religion ? Do the
warfar, terrorism, and corruption perpetrated by those who claim to serve God offend your sense of justice ? Why does religion seem to be the root of so many problems ?

The fault lies not at all with religion, but with false religion. It is being misrepresented by false prophets and hypocrites. A widely respected religious
figure, Jesus Christ, indicated that false religion produces bad works, just as a rotten tree produces worthless fruit. (Matthew 7:15-17) What fruit does false religion yield ?

Meddles in War and Politics- A Prominent religious leader says, "Youve got to blow them away in the name of the Lord". By contrast, the Bible says if anyone makes the statement, I Love God' and yet hates his brother, then he is a liar. (1st John 4:20)

Spreads False Doctrine- Most religions teach that the soul is some invisible part of the human that survives death of the physical body. Religions exploit their members charging them money to pray for a departed soul. The Bible teaches something different....... The soul that sinneth shall die. (Ezekiel 18:4) The living are conscious that they will die, but the dead are conscious of nothing at all. (Ecclesiastes 9:5)
Jesus taught that the dead will be ressurectd. So is this neccesary if humans had
an immortal soul ?

Tolerates Immoral Sex- In Western Lands, church groups ordain gay and lesbian members of clergy and urge the government to reconcile same sex marriages.
Even churches that condemn immorality have tolerated religious leaders who have sexually abused children. What does the Bible teach ?
It plainly states. "Do not be misled. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor Men kept for unnatural purposes, nor Men who lie with Men, will inherit the Kingdom Of God. (1st Corintians 6:9, 10) If a religion condones these things then that too is wrong.

So to those who are non believers, do you understand now ?
False religion does not represent who God is.

I don't think being condescending and insulting is going to rally atheists to see things your way.

It never usually is an effective means of communicating.

Cosmic. You dont have to worry about the condescending or insulting part.
That seems to be the norm here. Next.

Cosmic. I actually like when you speak the truth and does not fear that in any way shape or form. I am just laughing at your weak and feeble attempt to try and seem so logical with your self righteous attitude and distorted but very forced
perception about what the truth is. Newsflash update. It is all lies.

I'd take you more seriously if your avatar wasn't wearing a suit.

I don't trust people who wear suits.

Man Is Good. Are you void of understanding or hard of hearing ?
Do you understand the difference now between false and real religion ?
That is the question.

I don't trust your definition of 'understanding', 'father of lies'.

Frankly, as an atheist, I consider all religions to be interpretations of one's surroundings (figuratively and literally), though some are morally and ethically wrong.
That is the question.
The question mark at the end of the sentence indicates it is a question.

One's surroundings ? That too is irrelevent. I think it is more about ones personal
convictions instead. I may be associated with the Christianity religion. But it comes from my own personal view on how I see the world overall. I uunderstand that these events took place long ago and in another part of the globe. However, it
still resonates and correlates with the events of the modern day world.
