Islam just like budism, christianity is not worth dying for

Reader comment on item: Islam's Future [Can Be Modern]

Submitted by Ilanga (Switzerland), Feb 22, 2004 at 14:52

Dear readers,

Forgive me , English is not my first language, but i would like to respond to these subjects.

It has to be clear by now, that just like the Islam, christians, and all ancient religions are all created to bind people.
Religions jail us, by the answers we get from them, the way of life they want us to obey , are just to keep us from thinking and looking further to what really matters.

Simple things like alcohol is indeed something you should not touch if you can not contol yourself, you can not have alcohol ruin your life and the lives of others surrounding you, but drinking does not make you a bad person.I do not mind having people who drink around me.

Every person in this walk of life wants to be a good person, wouldn't it be better to support eachother in pursuing that goal instead of trying to find imperfect things or differences and fight over those worthless deatils?

I am trying to say that the islam is in the same stage now the christian were around 1500 years ago.

If all these religions are based on the same thing(by god they are) should'nt we realise there has to be much more than the specific religions are trying to tell us?

In a 1000 years the islam will be at the same level as other religions are and i hope that people will have found by that time, that strenth comes from within. We do not need a book or preachers to tell us what is wrong and what isn't.

We are god in our own universe, we have the power to break, to make and build up ourselves and the ones around us.
It's not about religion, it's about spirituality.
We are all spiritual beings and need to find how to develop ourself and the planet we live on in such a way that we will all find happiness.

Happiness is something you have to expierience now!

Imagine you dying for your regligion and finding that there is nothing else after death? Wouldn't that be a waste?
