Whether we believe it or not, religion is important in all of our lives.

Every society's standards and laws are based on some form of religion. Throughout European history, we have seen many societies under the control of the church, and many governments trying to control the church.

The key element in the ruling/running of countries and societies is religion. Even not believing in religion is a religion. Religion defines  who we are and what we do.

While such controls might not be "good" for us, religion is important in the shaping of society as we know it today, and as we knew it in the past.

These days the amount of faith a person has, in his own religion, has led to inhuman behavior, to help hypocrites utilize it to make money and to be in power. Difference of opinion in religious matters has caused riots and confused people a lot, enabling violence all over the place.

Being religious is not the dogma, proclaiming the truth towards world peace and love is only doctrine. I wish the religious leaders understand this and when they do, the importance of religion in our lives has played its role fully well.

Ideally, making religion important in your life can lead to a life of love, joy, compassion, and service. True religion is not about the dogmas of the religion but is about the teachings and how they tell you to live your life. For example, just about every religion in the world, including many you have never heard of, have some form of the Golden Rule as central to their teachings.

Think about that. If everyone in the world simply followed the Golden Rule we would immediately have an end to war, racism, hunger, homelessness, and all forms of lack. When you realize how simple this Rule is for life, it is easy to see how many people, who claim that religion is important in their life, are far wide of the mark.

If religion is important in anyone's life, it should be evident in their behavior, not just in their words. Please don't tell me how much you love God. Show me in the way you treat your fellow humans. If religion is truly important in anyone's life, the fruits should be seen by all.
