Today I’m going to talk about religion. I’m not so sure how long I can write about it so we’ll see how far I go. I’m a Christian and to be more specific Seventh Day Adventist. I go to church on Saturday while most other Christians do this on Sunday.


There probably several hundred devisions of Christianity in the world. We have Catholic, Pentecostal, Baptist, Protestant, Angilcan and our very own home bred, Finger of God church just to mention a few. I personally belive my church is the right one and you probably believe yours is the right one so how can you ever be sure?

More than that we also have several religions. How can anyone be sure that theirs is the right one? Anyway all major religions have serious skeltons in their back ground. Christians had the crusades in which million of “barbarian” people were killed, Muslims have a more mordern version of this in which they bomb theyselves and others in the name of God. Both owned slaves. With all this how can anyone be sure about anything?

Anyway almost all mordern religions are less than 3000 years ago and if you believe like I do that we where created atleast 7000years ago whom did we worship back then? How did we do it? Why did we stop? And what about indiginous communities on Africa before importation? These are matters of faith I agree but still when you doubt you ask these same questions. And couldn’t religion just be some sort of control(like in the Matrix) to keep society and human being spiralling out of control? And when does faith have to stop and logic keep in? Peace!

To "How can anyone be sure that theirs is the right one? "That is why it is called a faith. you believe and have confidence in your faith. when you have faith in something or someone , there is no time or space for that question.
To "And couldn't religion just be some sort of control(like in the Matrix) to keep society and human being spiralling out of control?" My dear i think what your having is a down in your faith and beliefs because normally you would not accommodate the idea that it could all be a control game. Faith is what it is.faith.

Religion is man trying to get to God when he has already made the bridge to us. Christ cam not to set up a religion but to reconcile us to God. We've been misinterpreting him ever since

@Mbabazi I agree with you but sometimes faith seems blind or even stupid. I don't know…
