The intentions are good in most religions. Religions teach many good morals to people on how to treat the rest of humanity. Religions teach spirituality to uplift people’s well being. Religions teach many practical life lessons to live life successfully and fulfill one’s passions. Some religions have teachings to keep people accountable for their own actions so that they do good unto one another rather than harm.
Many religions have a very holistic teachings to inspire us to live our lives with joy and in peace. With so many religions, most with great intentions for humanity, the world should be a better place would’t it? Well yes, we can conclude that some of our civilizations are better off today than how it was in the primitive past.

This will probably be one of my most controversial website/blog I will ever publish.

I’m not an atheist. I’m not a devil worshipper. I’m not a pastor nor a preacher.
I believe in what religions teach. I practice to my best ability to follow the moral teachings of religions. I pray. I am grateful for everything that has been provided for me. I try to do what I am intended to do or what I am good at or passionate about. Some say it is God’s purpose for me.
But I don’t believe in the illusion that we have created on religions. That illusion is not even about what is taught in religions, but what we think differs our so called religions. The differences we think we have from one another is all just an illusion.
There is no such thing as religions as we know them to be.
