The purpose of "religion" is to attempt to reach up to God. Religion does not try to benefit mankind.

The bottom line of all man's religions is to be good enough to appease God.

Basically they are "works" based. If I do the right thing, say the right things, think the right things, act the right way then God will have to accept me into His heaven.

The problem with works based religions is, how much is good enough to appease a totally Holy and totally Righteous God?

Sadly all religions fail to benefit mankind.

But God did make a way for us to be acceptable to Him, and that way is through a relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ. The Bible says that God loved us so much the He gave His only Son, that whoever believed in Jesus would have everlasting life (John 3:16). Not works based but Faith based, faith in Jesus and His work for us on the cross. Accepting His work that was exactly what God wants. His righteousness in exchange for our sin. His perfect life for our imperfect lives.

Let us first find the dictionary meaning of the word Religion which is "A strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny" Now having done that we must next discover what the purpose of this supernatural power is. Two purposes come to mind that of Good and that of Evil. If one wishes to learn about Good then one has to find out about the Power that is good. All good come from God. If however we wish to turn to Evil then we turn towards the dark powers of Satan. Both good and evil can be to some degree classed as a religion. The Religion of good can only be to your benefit and the glory of God, whereas the the Religion of evil is only for the gratification of Satan, where the one builds you up the other will drag you down. Where God is all caring Satan is without care, he has no pity, no forgiveness and no mercy. Religion works on the very heart and soul of mankind, either for good or for evil. It is instilled into man from his very birth to know good from evil. The choice is left to the individual which way he will turn.

We can only speculate. If there was a good reason to justify the expense, it could be done now. A unicorn is just a horse with a horn which could be grafted surgically if there were some benefit for mankind in doing so.

it depends... some may need one, as an ideal or a belief.... (religion may function as a Law too) some may not... because They think that it was a system and rule created by others to improve society... *in religion... crime and evil were banned right?* but, nowadays, many people misuse the power of Religion. for example... as a doctrine... or just a self-justification..... in my opinion, as long as you belief in yourself, and carry out good deeds and justice... There's no reason that we need religion... because, even an atheist can be kinder than those criminal with religion.... and, if you do good deeds in order to please GOD and enter heaven... I think it's very "business". why not doing good deeds not for GOD and religion? but to improve society and mankind instead? :D but, the most important thing is yourself.... Don't be affected by others or being doctrinized with other's belief... the choice is really up to yourself :D

They all can learn from scriptures two basic principles:To believe in God oneness and worship Him per his commands in the scriptures.To do good deeds for the benefit of community and mankind.-ELO-
