Issue of the week: CAN Religion define a Man?
Religion is an organized collection of beliefs, cultural systems, and world views that relate humanity to the supernatural, and to spirituality. Many religions have narratives, symbols, and sacred histories that are intended to explain the meaning of life and/or to explain the origin of life or the Universe. From their beliefs about the cosmos and human nature, people derive morality, ethics, religious laws or a preferred lifestyle. According to some estimates, there are roughly 4,200 religions in the world.
Man in this context includes male and female, I intended using the dictionary meaning but just seemed to define man as a full grown person irrespective of human race,colour,skin or whatever distinguishes each from one continent or tribe with good sense of reasoning even if he has any disability but can distinguish between good and bad. Recently, an event occurred which shocked the country called Kenya, and I can still remember vividly well of the September 11 attack in the united States of America to which I know these are major bizarre happenings even if there are worse to purged the hearts of tears that well-kept to fill joyful moments at least.Am sure you guys would be thinking am talking about the terrorist attack which I as well condemn but am also asking the why would anyone hide under the pretense of any religion.
I write to be corrected but can I ask this question can there be a religion that suggests bloodshed as a way of harmony or acceptance of fate? To what extent can a man (meaning Inclusive)harm the other man and derive joy as a means of survival?. According to a recent post I saw by Afrocandy how long do we intend having weapons in our pockets because we want to fight back? Then where’s the Love?
TO BE CONTINUED ON THE NEXT PART DOES RELIGION DEFINE A MAN 2
N:B: No defined religion is mentioned above and none should be in anyway attached to comments please.
