My Thoughts On Religions

I hold an opinion that religions are divine vehicles – means to an end – to lessen your load of “Karmic” sinful debts with their arrays of doctrines – so that you can lead the right path in life and ascend to the realm of everlasting bliss upon your expiry of your physical life.

And, it is a sad state of affair when men interpret their religious doctrines as if sole proprietary rights, and self-righteously defend them tooth and nail and fighting one another.

I once asked a person so devoted in his religious belief and tried hard to convert me into his fold. I asked him rather mischievously if he was willing to give up his reserved lot in Heaven and go to Hell on my behalf, if I were to be converted by him. He ran away.All religious should serve all mankind, and not only parochially to satisfy the need of individual to seek personal salvation. Is it a “Tall Order”?

  1. Hell is a state of mind.. Jesus told us we could create heaven on earth if we stopped seeing everyone else as bad or wrong in some way and instead opened our hearts to the truth we are here to love each other.
