What was the British religion?
Definitions of Religion 1) Religion is the adherence to codified beliefs and ritualsthat generally involve a faith in a spiritual nature and a study ofinherited ancestral traditions, knowledge and wisdom related tounderstanding human life. The term "religion" refers to both thepersonal practices …related to faith as well as to the larger sharedsystems of belief. 2) Generally, religion is an organized, formal system ofbelief in God, usually associated with payment to a religiousleader of the organization. It has been said: that religion is thecultural phenomenon caused by tales of a real personal relationshipwith the true God, that can be traced by to the first truerelationship between a man and His God. 3) Religion is a term given to a spirituality that has corebeliefs, that are represented in ritual, that are recorded insacred texts, that answer the fundamental questions of the humancondition. 4) Religion is a search for answers to questions that may ormay not have any. 5) In my words, religion is an irrational belief insupernatural entities and a waste of time. You may as well believethat the Tooth Fairy is real, the Tooth Fairy has the sameprobability of existing as any 'God' worshiped by a religion. Toquote Robert Pirsig's statement in Lila that "when oneperson suffers from a delusion it is called insanity. When manypeople suffer from a delusion it is called religion". 6) A religion is a practice of faith. Examples of Religions All of the following can be referred to as a religion: Buddhism,Hinduism, Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Wicca, Eckankar, RaÃ«lism,Zoroastrianism, New Age, Unitarian Universalism, Jainism, Shinto,LaVeyan Satanism, Scientology, Taoism, Yoruba, Druidry, paganism,Juche, Cao Dai. Take your pick. Purpose of Religions 1) 'Religion' should all be able to tie into one we shall nolonger fight over power. 2) I believe that religion is just something that helps usalong. It's like a parental figure. Something that can guide youalong, step by step. We all know that following somebody Else'sfootsteps is easier than going along by yourself. I believe thatinstead of filling someone's head with opinions and biases we coulddisplay honest and true FACTS. It's like debating. The judges isn'tgoing to pick an answer like the one above. 3) Religion is also not all about corruption and murder. Yes,there have been wars and, yes, there have been arguments but somepeople forget that there is also love and honesty. Christianity,Islam, Hinduism, etc. I think that they were all meant to enlightenpeople, to help them. You forget that it was MAN that pervertedpart of these religions. It wasn't the idea of it. Answer: Religionis a worship of a god goddess or someone all religions have templesand homes of the monks. Christian is the most common of all thereligions. 4) Organised religion's purpose is to create more believersso that they can continue to prosper and grow fat on the ignoranceand superstition of the masses. Discovering Religions I found my religion- still without a name- by comparing religionsthrough and through the truth will come shortly. Spiritualist Christian View Region is man seeking God; Christianity is God seeking man. Religion is a system of faith and worship to which someone ascribessupreme importance. (MORE)
Another answer from our community: In the 4th century, it is likely that the religion of the BritishIsles would have been a mixture of both Christianity, andindigenous and Roman paganism.
Why Religios Exists . Because humanity is created in the image of God, humans carry within them a spark of the divine--commonly called a spirit.. This spirit, which possesses the thumbprint of God the creator, constantly seeks intimacy and communion with God. We were made to worship. Religion he…lps many people to fulfill this desire to be one with the Creator.. Over the course of your life, watch people, and you will see that this is true: We were made to worship, and if we do not find a way to connect to the God Who made us, we will worship something in God's place: ourselves, beauty, wealth, status, cars, houses, nihilism. We are going to worship something, I guarantee it. Religion, admittedly, has the tendency to grow stale, cold, and useless, which is why it must constantly be revitalized by personal seeking and a desire to know God for oneself.. Religion can also be confusing if it is not taught correctly, or lived out before the learner in a way that is real and meaningful.. But the Bible promises that God is a rewarder of those Who diligently seek Him.... (MORE)

From the beginning, humans had a religion, a reference to their common origin. It is an instinct that humans feel connected to a Creator, higher being or Designer. Humans are also inclined to believe in superstitions and supernatural forces that affect their lives. This combination of faith and feel…ing is expressed in religions, which are simply a view of life and existence that is shared by individuals. (MORE)
The modern use of the term "religion" is an organized or structured form of belief. . Why do Religions Exist . The existence of religions is related to philosophy, the study of how Man thinks and how he interacts with the world and other individuals. Religion, however, implies a Divine or mystica…l connection between Man, life, the universe, and Creation. . A religion is a group of spiritual beliefs by a person or an organized group. It is based on the interpretation of existence and creation that exceeds the physical world (i.e. the metaphysical). Over the course of human life on Earth, society has formed organized groups (churches and doctrines) among those with similar beliefs, and passed these beliefs to their descendants. In each generation, religions may evolve, or alter their policies, precepts, and rituals. New religions, or variations of older ones, will appear. Some will grow, some will fail, and some will be rediscovered. Each religion has its own concept of how its adherents should apply their faith to their lives, and the relationship of those lives to their creation; to eternity and the universe. . Because religions are based on faith, they cannot be objectively compared, only studied for their impact on the individual and on society. Conflicts between religions result because religious, moral beliefs are accorded preference by their believers. Individuals are often faced with serious decisions when their moral or religious beliefs do not coincide with the rights or beliefs of others, or the laws of society. religion mean :- the belief in and worship of a god or gods, or any such system of belief and worship (MORE)

Religious intolerance in Europe is what prompted numerous settlersto come to America.

The reason why there are religions is because people had traditions and beliefs that eventually became formalized. Religion was created as a social compact between man and the universe. They created a God that would bring psychological comfort in times of hardship. They created a God that would prot…ect them from natural disasters, disease and extinction. Religion provided the method for maintaining social balance. Answer Because that's how we label the different practices that people with common ideas or beliefs about God. Answer The real problem with 'religion' is that many of the rules within most organised religions are man-made. Despite being a Christian I hate it when someone calls me 'religious' as I'm not. I always equate 'being religious' as being 'holier-than-thou' and, somehow 'better' than the irreligious - again which I'm not. All too often in historym, organised religions have had a great deal of explaining to do as their man-made rules have won causing hatred and oppression rather than showing unconditional love; to look for real, Christian love, one invariably has to look at individuals rarther than organised religion. If the question means 'why do you have organised religions' this is simple because, as the above answer states, people had traditions and beliefs that eventually became formalised. However, because major religions are run by humanity, they are susceptible to corruption and causing misery just like any other large organisation, just as much as they are capable of great good for the whole of humanity both here and now and in the future. However, if you mean 'why do you (personally) have your own belief , then this is quite different. Almost everyone has some degree of spirituality, even atheists, for even in denying a God they are considering the question as to whether there is a God or not. Speaking as a Christian, Christians have a special belief in, and relationship with, God through Jesus Christ. They believe that this relationship is so vital for life and brings life in all its fullness to those who follow him. They seek to improve their lives and the lives of others by following two simple commandments - to love God with all their heart just as he loves us, and to then share this love with others - unconditionally - with as much sincerity as we would love ourselves. If everyone followed these two simple rules of life then, surely the world would be a much better place. So really, religion isn't important. It's the relationship with God and what we do with it that really matters. (MORE)

Nothing, really. Religions were created in times when people didn't know what caused things, and likewise didn't have the instruments (or minds) to find out. The most well-known case will have to be God: "Who created the world/universe/people/animal etc."

Here is a definition of Religion: . In short, religion is a "set of beliefs" or "something one believes in and follows devotedly". It usually has something to do with the origin of the universe and the purpose of life, and it usually points to a god or gods of some sort - Like in the case of Chri…stianity, Islam, and other similar religions. But it also includes another type, like Secular Humanism, and Evolution, and other religions where one believes that himself is the purpose of life, or that there is no personal god. Even Atheism can be a type of religion because Atheists "firmly believe" that there is no god. It all comes down to what a particular person believes, and that determines what religion is for them. See the following definition from Dictionary.com:. reâ liâ gion . /rÉªËlÉªdÊÉn/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [ri-lij-uhn] Show IPA. --noun 1. a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, esp. when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs. 2. a specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a number of persons or sects: the Christian religion; the Buddhist religion. 3. the body of persons adhering to a particular set of beliefs and practices: a world council of religions. 4. the life or state of a monk, nun, etc.: to enter religion. 5. the practice of religious beliefs; ritual observance of faith. 6. something one believes in and follows devotedly; a point or matter of ethics or conscience: to make a religion of fighting prejudice.

I am an agnostic. I don't believe in a particular faith, but I do believe that there are forces in the universe which we cannot see or control. I think that some things are unknowable, and many things are unable to be proved. Nothing is off the table when it comes to the ethereal.

'To be or not to be' is about suicide. The Christian religion, and maybe others, is against suicide on the basis that it is only God who should decide when a person dies.
That's for you to answer...try it my way? Trial and error? Do a bit of research into what you believ now, look into as many forms of religion as you can, then see if they fit your beliefs. If none of them do, you can keep searching, there are more faiths out there than you think. I can safely gamble… that you will probably share with atheists or deists. Be philosophical, and think hard, it may take a lifetime. P.S; don't get mixed up with principal, opinion, and belief. (MORE)

That is an interesting question and one that has been asked many times it would seem that society's that do not have any type of spiritual or religious if you like facet to them don't thrive. A society is a group of individuals that work together and in the interest of each other in order to succeed…. they see their society as one entity and they see themselves as part of that entity. If all of the individuals in the society saw themselves as individuals with only their own best interest at heart the society would fail. because of this way of thinking there has been a type of confusion build in peoples minds that there is an overall powerful entity (like a father or mother to a child) that oversees all of this. and this line of thought has developed and become more complex as Wilie politicians and theologians have taken advantage of it to further their own power bases. Never the less without this weakness that leads people into religion they would never have been able to working cooperation with each other to any great extent. the building of the piramids is probably a good example.

In England, and Brittian back in the early 1500s, the practice of the Anglican religion became popular. Nowadays, I am pretty sure there is still some of the Anglican practice occuring, but there is also some Christianity, and most likely some Islam or Budhism believe it or not. Lots of more popular… religions around the world can spring up in strange places. Hope this helps. (MORE)

The British Royal family can in theory marry a person of any religion - or none - except Catholics. So a Sikh, Satanist, Jain, Jew or Moslem would be legally acceptable, but Catholics are not acceptable. This goes back to King Henry 8th breaking with Rome and founding the Church of England with hims…elf at its head. His daughter Elizabeth put it into Law, which remains today. Some minor royals have married Catholics or converted to Catholicism, but they have had to give up their place in line to the throne. (MORE)
