I was going through this thread and I found a particularly disturbing comment (in red) which I quote here :

Maruf 32 weeks ago

I can only say that before we die we must search the true religion to save myself whether it hurts someone or no matter it attracts woe to me. I am ready to exchange all of mine in this life for following a true religion. In this path I am still searching. Pray for me?

Maruf, I just want to ask you one thing. Why do you think that you must follow a religion? I mean, in the sense of organized religion which has carrot and stick (not all religions have that). Is it to save your life? I see that is common in people but why do you want to save your life in the first place? Knowing this is important.

Sanada_10,

You asked , ""Why do you think that you must follow a religion?Is it to save your life?

Yes, I want to save myself by following the most truthful religion according to Blaise Pascal because I love... ... ... myself most. I want to avoid uncertainty with my beloved life. I am afraid of torment of fire, poisonous snacks, dangerous things, other unknown punishments( if any) at first. And want the paradise, Joy, Luxury (If any).

______________________________________________________________________

First I thought its sarcastic, but after reading few more comments from the guy I realized he actually means whatever he writes. Do you think most believers think like this? I mean is dogmatic faith in institutionalized religions, doctrines, revelations, cults etc driven by such irrational fear of hellfire, damnation etc? Do religions, especially the monotheistic cults, survive on human's fear of the unknown? Because if that's the case, then its genuinely a matter of concern. It can do terrible damage to the believer as well as the rest of the society at large.

Respect all religions and read about them but do not change the religion of the family wherever possible.
Live in harmony.
By reading about spirituality and the Universal Truths the spirit can be satisfied.
These days we can google search for everything. Reading about the lives of saints and sages clears our doubts.
All realized souls have unity of thought and there is no difference in which one we approach, the choice is ours.
When I first read "Autobiography of a Yogi" it was quite an eye opener and from there I covered a few other great books.

No, I don't believe that God exists. I started a thread refuting the concept of God. You can read my full thoughts there.
