Religious belief is the feeling that makes up the man a better person. A person can only get success and fame if he follows the rules set by God and the Holy Book. Religion is the faith that lies in the heart of every human being. A person, whomever it appears to be is born to follow the religion and set his/her life according to the golden principle and rules of the Book and God. God is generous and is very kind, he set up a path and it is compulsory for every human to follow that path to get success and prosperity in life. Religion is the hidden secret of every person's life and one has to follow it.
There are many types of people in the world belongs to a different nation and culture and each one has a different religion. Each religion has its different practice to pacify God's. The different community has different ways to live their life. It is said that every person is answerable to its deeds and no one can speak on its behalf, so one should follow the right path and keep himself devoted to God. Every religion has its ways and they are followed with great belief and enthusiasm.
Meditation is valuable for all of humanity because it involves looking inward. People don't have to be religious to look inside themselves more carefully. It is constructive and worthwhile to analyze our emotions, including compassion and our sense of caring, so that we can become more calm and happy.
I have never conceived that having been in public life required me to belie my sentiments, or to conceal them. opinion and the just maintenance of it shall never be a crime in my view, nor bring injury on the individual. i never will by any word or act, bow to the shrine of intolerance. i never had an opinion in politics or religion which i was afraid to own; a reserve on these subjects might have procured me more esteem from some people, but less from myself.
He had made a passionate study of education, only to come, gradually, to the knowledge that education is nothing but the process of building up, gradually, a complete unit of consciousness. And each unit of consciousness is the living unit of that great social, religious, philosophic idea towards which humankind, like an organism seeking its final form, is laboriously growing.
I had no idea, however, that in pennsylvania, the cradle of toleration and freedom of religion, it [fanaticism] could have arisen to the height you describe. this must be owing to the growth of presbyterianism. the blasphemy of the five points of calvin, and the impossibility of defending them, render their advocates impatient of reasoning, irritable, and prone to denunciation.
I do believe that nice religious people make the world safe for extremists by teaching us [...] that faith is a virtue, teaching us that there's something good about holding beliefs without any substantiating evidence. Once you buy into that, [...] then the door is opened to extremists who defend their extremism by saying, 'oh well, it's my faith, you can't touch it, you can't criticise my faith, i don't even need to defend it because faith is faith.'
Among the sayings and discourses imputed to him (i.e. jesus) by his biographers, i find many passages of fine imagination, correct morality, and of the most lovely benevolence; and others again of so much ignorance, so much absurdity, so much untruth, charlatanism, and imposture, as to pronounce it impossible that such contradictions should have proceeded from the same being.
It is at least scientifically respectable to postulate that at the centre of a black hole the laws of nature no longer apply. Since most scientists are just a bit religious and most religious are seldom wholly unscientific we find humanity in a comical position. His scientific intellect believes in the possibility of miracles inside a black hole while his religious intellect believes in them outside it.
My belief is that the various religious traditions have great potential to increase compassion, the sense of caring for one another, and the spirit of reconciliation. However, i believe that a human being, without religious faith, can be a very good person - sincere, a good heart, having a sense of concern for others - without belief in a particular religious faith.
