    Default How do we or did we choose our RELIGION/CHURCH ?


    A simple question for others to check their RELIGION/CHURCH.

    Did we choose our religion/church because of advantage and luxury we can get?
    Did we choose our religion/church because we have fully submitted ourselves to GOD?

    because for some, joining a RELIGION/CHURCH is like buying a cellphone, they're considering the benefits that they can get or features that they can enjoy.

    Some people will choose a RELIGION/CHURCH that will tolerate their works and in other hand assurance of SALVATION (works no more and faith alone).

    Some people will choose a RELIGION/CHURCH because of security, they choose that RELIGION/CHURCH because of connection with the authorities and government.

    In GENERAL we choose our RELIGION/CHURCH or some deny RELIGION/CHURCH because of benefits we can get PHYSICALLY and LUXURIOUS.

    Some RELIGION/CHURCH will tolerate their members as long as they will continue contribute big amount of money (they think salvation of our souls can be matched with wealth).

    Some RELIGION/CHURCH doesn't care what they members are doing as long as they're members or declare as a member so that THEIR CHURCH/RELIGION is the ultimate TRUTH because of their numbers.

    SO by this, how did we measure our CHURCH/RELIGION?
    Did we measure it by the standards of MEN or by the Standards of GOD?

    These are some questions that if possible answer it through our conscience and then make a self check.


    Peace!

    my parents baptized me in this church. my parents parents were baptized in this church. my parents parents parents were baptized in this church. my ancestors were baptized in this church. but my ancestors ancestors weren't originally from this church, they converted for the sake of adaptation.

    still, we cannot deny that RELIGION IS THE BEST BUSINESS. you pray on people's ignorance!

    so you remain or choose your religion because of family matters?

    YES RELIGION IS THE BEST BUSINESS for those who don't FEAR GOD and want their souls to be at LAKE OF FIRE.
    Its them who can help theirselves not to stay ignorance or worst scenario, they're pretending that they're ignorant. But GOD see our hearts so nothing can be hid.


    Peace!

    most filipinos never have a change to choose what to believe. they WERE born to embrace their parent's belief system.

    our society has a huge impact on that one....we cant blame our parents for bringing us to their fold. society/peer pressure really is a b!tch.haha

    at least some parents exhibit/allow a little freedom regarding their son's and daughter's belief choices/options.

    i've chosen it because its what the bible said and thats what I've read.
    I didn't choose it just because I have benefits to gain physically and to have an edge in this life.

    as what Christ said:

    23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
    Luke 9:23


    so now its your turn to answer.

    Peace!

    my parents choose it for me when i was a child...

    by the examples they've showed me, by what our family has become, and from what i've read and learned i choose to embrace this religion...

    (a family that prays together stays together)

    Almost all religions nowadays have turned into fanaticism...

    The real truth of the teachings of their 1st Masters has been forgotten and replaced by doctrines that suit the current leadership. Mura na lang ug wall sa balay nga kadaghan na gisapawan ug pintal, but the real beauty is inside and dili na makit.an sa kadaghanan.

    Maybe it's time we seek the truth about life and not just believe by what is said or written by who about life and the Creator.
