The Ever-Changing World Of Religion

Religion is the only topic of conversation, which has consistently been the subject of argument for many thousands of years. It is a long and complicated history filled with arguments between those who believe in the existence of God and those who do not. The arguments range from the most petty such as stating that evil is created by god to the most horrendous crimes against the human race has committed. religion, like all topics of discussion, has evolved greatly through the centuries.


Religion is a cultural and social-psychological system of assigned behaviors, beliefs, moral standards, texts, philosophies, sanctified spaces, norms, and organizations, which link humanity to its ultimate source, a divine creator who is the source of all existence and power. Through religion, humans are bound together by a shared belief system that justifies their actions and thoughts and helps them understand the world and their place in it. This also gives them a common language and an identity. This is basically what religion is. Unfortunately, this bond between religion and mankind has been a fragile one, and has often been threatened by internal struggles and unrest. The constant changing of religious doctrines have eroded this bond and have led to a separation of religion from its meaning and purpose.

Paul Tillich sees religion as having three main components: belief, ritual, and experience. According to him, religion is essentially a belief system, one that makes sense and serves some or other purpose, whether that purpose is to understand, make peace, or protect against evil. Ritual is associated with experience, which is what we experience when we join with others or work together, religion helps us to be one with our belief system and strengthens our ability to remember it and make use of it in the course of our day-to-day lives.
