Contrary to what many people believe I tend to lean towards an idea where my faith is in an omnipotent God of unconditional love who allows everyone through the gates of Heaven to experience eternal heavenly bliss regardless of our Earthly sins or how we practiced or not practiced our religion. When we die everyone has the opportunity to "go into the light" and experience God's infinite beauty and perfection. A God of unconditional love does not reject any part of His creation based on a set of conditions. Maybe my faith is just stronger than most people and I will be proven wrong. Or maybe I am just not seeking revenge against anyone and I just do not take pleasure in the idea some people might suffer for all eternity. I like the idea everyone is just saved just by showing up! The idea religion has caused war or is the source of human suffering cannot be more wrong. If religion did not exist at all in the World there would be just as many wars, killings, and senseless acts of violence. Religion is not the source of all that is evil in the World. Poverty and imperfections in human character are the cause. If religion did not exist at all there would be just as many people killing each other over adultery. Just as many people living in poverty who snap because they become desperate. Just as many wars for profit. Just as many leaders jockeying to have power over other leaders at any expense. Religion does not cause war. The purpose of religion is to answer the four great existential questions: 1. Who am I? 2. Why am I here? 3. What does it all mean? 4. What is going to happen to me when I die? For many people, these questions create huge problems. The purpose of religion is to provide answers to these questions so people don't panic with fear. Better quality religions answer these questions in such a way people live happy productive lives with enthusiasm and with moral rectitude.
