People think their god exists in churches, temples and mosques

Yes.

A christian will say his church is the house of god…

A muslim will say his mosque is the house of god…

A Hindu will say his temple is the house of god…

A buddhist will say god doesn’t exist…

A Taoist will say there is no god, only Tao…

Who is right?

Who is wrong?

All the faiths say they preach Love…

And yet, it has been said, the first two faiths above, have together, exterminated over 500 million people since their inception, all in the name of who? God? Love? I don’t think so somehow.

The christians say we should live a life of love to all living things…so do the muslims…

The christian says when we die, we will be judged by what we have done, and then be sent to heaven or hell…

But who has seen that heaven or hell? The bible has been written, rewritten, revised and re-revised so many times, it is full of inaccuracies. There is not one person who can stand up in a crowd and say he has been to heaven or hell. So why do we preach something that may not even exist? It may exist, but only in the mind of the writer, nowhere else.

The muslim says that when we die, we will be raised from the dead by the founder of islam. And similar to the christian and jews, we will be judged and sent to the appropriate places according to your merits.

But how can a dead person be brought back to life? It is impossible physically.

The buddhist says there is no god…everything is an illusion. But if everything is an illusion, then how can we touch, feel or taste things? It doesn’t fit.

Some faiths say our aim is to bow down to god’s feet and we will be blessed forever. But then they say god has no form….so if he has no form, where do his feet come from then….?

Wouldn’t it be better if we all just lived our lives here by treating everyone as we would like to be treated ourselves? Help anyone who needs help. Live and let live.

Why do we have to believe in a religion?

“Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one”

John Lennon
