What religions teach good deads?

All religions of God teach gooddeeds and their messengers practised them as well and were to be taken as an example. The people dedicated themselves to fighting for good and this is the reason we still remember them thousands of years after they have passed away from this world.
It is later people who have distorted religion to make it more about a way of improving just oneself or ones immediate community. However that is one aspect of religion and there is much more. Community too is one aspect of religion but so is ones entire faith and most religions have a concept of mankind as a whole. i.e. when a person of one religion feels no moral obligations to one of another that too is against his own religion since many examples of the messengers indicate a respect for all people (those that belonged to the religion and those outside it as well).
