What do you need to know about religion and how do you find out?

At the times when people have the choice to determine their lifestyle, their partner, their work, education and preferred activities, we are bound to have multiple choices of everything. We make the conscious decisions of what to believe and what to think, based on the research that we do on one topic or another, we can now even choose which religion we would like to follow. The religion is no longer defined as pure Catholic, or Christian, there are deeper differences between each and people feel that they have the right to study the religion that they would like to be part of, prior to converting. If you were born in a Catholic family, it no longer means that this religion is something that you have to believe in for the rest of your life, you could convert to Judaism or Buddhism, if you wish. The choice is really, up to you.

FINDING RELIGION PHOTO

Choosing your religion is not a matter as simple as choosing what shoes you will wear today, although some women might argue that the latter is quite a difficult choice to make, but it requires much more attention and knowledge in order to determine what is it that you wish to believe in. There are certain aspects of each religion that you must first consider and ways in which you can find out about them, that will let you paint a clear picture of what is what.

First of all, you need to address the issue of the holy doctrine of each religion- be it The Holy Bible, or any other written documentation, outlining the main principles, beliefs, guidelines and other questions determining faith, that can help you understand the deeper meaning each religion has and what kind of a ‘refuge’ it offers for your mind and soul. You can do this by carrying out some research on the Internet, but it is best to order there holy books by yourself, in order to really study them in detail. You can order them online and choose your preferred courier transport method, which will deliver them to your door, so you can read them in private, and dedicate all the time that you need in order to be certain.

If possible, talk to the representatives of that religion, whether a priest, a monk or a rabbi. Make sure that you have a list of the questions that interest you most in that religion and ask them to those who know best. By visiting a religious temple, church or synagogue, you get to learn more about the history of each, try to really close your eyes and listen to your inner self and see how comfortable you feel in each place. Does it offer you the comfort that you need? Do you feel at peace there? It is very important. Some places are hard to get into if you are not of that religion, but you can walk around and see what people enter it and how they are behaving outside of that temple.

Overall, choosing which religious path to follow and which religion is right for you is not a process that should be rushed. Take you time, do your reading and ask others, that way you can form an overall picture of what your path in life is.

5 things that the Church frowns upon, but what can we do?

Catholic-Church PhotoIn the world that we live in, there are many rules, beliefs, traditions, customs and religious guidance that we don’t particularly adhere to. We all want and try to be proper Christians, Protestants, Catholics, Mormons and so on, according to our religious belief, but when it comes to every day life, how easy is it to implement the things that the Church advocates and what are the things that simply cannot be done? Going to Church every Friday is compulsory and strict enough, but what about ‘sinful’ actions like gluttony, or having relationships without marriage, even worse, kids out of the wedlock, or what about stealing? Does stealing someone else’s idea to your own benefit count as a sin? Let’s look at the 5 common things that the Church would frown upon, but then again, we have to live our lives somehow, right?

Gluttony

While gluttony refers to the process of over-eating and usually associated hedonistic behavior, there are times when we perform that ‘sin’ without even realizing it. Think about Thanksgiving dinners, what about Christmas celebrations, and Birthday parties? We usually buy, cook and prepare food that could feed a small country, just for our families to eat during that day in the year when we celebrate one thing or another. When the tables are filled with roasted turkeys, salads, side dishes, desserts, pies, cookies, drinks, fruits and more, what do you call that? If that is not gluttony, then what is? And do we have to feel bad when we eat our Christmas dinner to celebrate that wonderful holiday?

Relationships

Most religions advocate the importance of marriage, you have to meet the person you fall in love with, marry them, have many children, who will be taught to do the same. But the modern man doesn’t want to marry, or have children in their teens or even 20’s. The majority of the population is aging, whereas there are so few babies born, that it has created a demographic problem. If you would to improve these alarming statistics, you can try this out. We also have other issues, like people living together, in so-called ‘civil unions’, for several years, to see whether they are a good fit. Instead of increasing the divorce rates, which are already high in the country, people are finding new ways to meet each other, live together, find out what each other is really like, and then may be get married. Most of the younger population now treats marriage as a binding legal document, more than anything, they would rather concentrate on more pleasant parts of their union, like romance, love and intimacy, with websites showing people how to last longer in bed it is now easy to find ways to feel closer to your partner.

Lies

The Church says that we should not lie, but that is such a general term. People lie all the time, think about actors on TV, in fact, anyone in the Mass Media – they tell you the news, but are they telling the truth, or lying? What about those of us who work in the Sales and Marketing? Often enough we find ourselves making creative descriptions in order to boost sales that have nothing to do with reality. And how about the simplest of all – when someone asks you how you are doing, do you always tell them the truth? Of course no, so if everyone in the world just stopped lying, it is not certain that the world would miraculously become a better place.

Stealing

Another very general guideline is about stealing. If it means stealing material possessions of others, it is reasonable, but it is such a general term that it can be applied in a number of ways. For example when we do research on the Internet, and we read something and then use it in our every day life, we don’t always remember to quote the source of that idea or innovation, is that considered stealing? Will we be punished in the afterlife for this, or is this ok?

Interfaith marriage

A question that has raised a lot of frowns is the provoking interfaith marriage, when people of different religions marry each other. First, people are supposed to marry, but then, the Church doesn’t let them marry the person they fall in love with, who may be their soulmate, but of another religion. In the modern society where a man has so much freedom of choice and endless possibilities to actually search the whole world to find their other half, such a strict moral is not something that sets you free, it is something that weighs you down and restricts you.
