Guess we agree, Claire

Reader comment on item: Churches in Saudi Arabia?
in response to reader comment: religious doctrine

Submitted by B. Williame (Belgium), Apr 17, 2008 at 04:22

We agree on these things that faith can do a lot of harm.

I think you probably would agree with me that the main cause for faith to be important for many is the reason for life.

A question most people have asked themselves at some point.:"why?"

Why do we live, why do we need to reproduce, why do we need to be good, why can't we kill, what happens after death, Is this all, or is there something more.?

To all these questions it was religion and religion only that answered for many decades and some will still need religion(faith) for the future.

The early caveman already needed religion for those questions to be answered.

Perhaps there is some super being but going into that direction is more my own personal findings and faith. And as with personal faith I expect not many to agree with me. you see I'm not with any of the current known religious groups I'm making my own faith and am still forming it till it gives me all answers I seek without any contradiction or illogic left. My personal faith who is possibly a bit difficult to understand.

regards
