The chase of a better religion has made man more distracted from his Creator than any other thing. Religion is a complete distraction to Humanity. Over the years, many crises are a result of religious discrimination and superiority in belief. I believe religion is a complete deception and a means of constraining people. There is only one true God and He is neither a Christian nor a Muslim. He is known by so many names but one thing is for sure, He is God and also the creator of Heaven and Earth.

RELIGION IS A COMPLETE DISTRACTION TO HUMANITY
The Bible and the Quran has so many things in common and one is the creator. Whether the Quran or Bible, God remains God, Heaven and Earth remain the same. None of these books specify that the creator is a religion God or not. He is regarded as holy and pure without sin.
The major problem of the world today is as a result of who is serving the one true God. Who has the better ways and knows the way to the kingdom of God. Religions battles has claimed more lives than any other on earth. Do you think God is happy to see bad people to die. If yes, then why did Jesus come to die?
Religion is very complicated, no man knows the true religion. A lot of people find themselves under some particular beliefs without choice because they were born into it. While others are by the choices they made.
A choice Religion is that religion you decided to follow as a result of personal conviction or spiritual encounter of something greater than you. This set of believers are usually more faithful in the ways of their belief. These are usually the very sensitive and dedicated persons to a religion. Always kind and follow the way of God.
If indeed you have had an encounter before, how are you sure it is not your mind playing games with you. Don’t be too fast to conclude. Try putting what you had an encounter with to test or else you might as well be daydreaming. Peradventure your test was concluded, it means you are one among many that are graced.
The people under this category of religion are people who are born into their religion and decided to remain in it. More percentage of believers here are lost and need redemption because they don’t know what they really want. They do things just for doing sake and pay less attention to the religion. Everything they did is based on formality and not by self will or conviction.
Choice of Religion
Ask your self one question; if your both parents were Muslim and you were born into the Muslim family, would you have converted into Christian Religion?
The same question from the opposite side:
The same question from the opposite side: if your parents were Christian and you were born into the Christian family, would you have converted into Islamic Religion?
Most of us follow the parts which has been created for us to follow. We never made any of these decisions, we are where we are today because that is where our own parents introduced us into. It is almost the same as the tribe we are from and the food we eat. All this are as a result of where we grow up.
Love and Religion
Have you not notice that love has nothing to do with religion? Whether Muslim or Christian, love has no religion. Love and religion has no conflict but today people choose to love out of religion that is why you see problem everywhere. The most important thing in choosing a partner is; Making sure the person is from your kindred so that you will be compactable in choice of food and ways.
Genesis 24:4-7 (GNV)
You must go back to the country where I was born and get a wife for my son Isaac from among my relatives.”
But the servant asked, “What if the young woman will not leave home to come with me to this land? Shall I send your son back to the land you came from?”
Abraham answered, “Make sure that you don’t send my son back there!
The Lord, the God of heaven, brought me from the home of my father and from the land of my relatives, and he solemnly promised me that he would give this land to my descendants. He will send his angel before you, so that you can get a wife there for my son.
The above scriptures is to explain how important it is to always marry from your homeland. Those who marry cross-continentally are mostly in bondage because their both ways are very far. It is even uneasy for a man and a woman from different homes to get along, how much more different continent?
Christian And Muslim
Being a Christian or being a Muslim does not mean that you will find favor in the sight of God. But don’t be mislead by my words, baptism is for sure and following the commandment of God and the laws of the land is more important than what religion you are. Those who have a good heart will always find favor with God.
8. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
9. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
This persons referred to by the above scriptures are not Christians only but everyone in general. Abraham was not a Christian when God instructed him to leave his fathers land and blessed him as father of all nation.
If only people can put religion outside their dealing and focus on how to make the world a better place. A lot of achievement and peace will be gained, love will spread to the heart of many. We are all one and were created by One Creator. If you are a Christian or Muslim! That doesn’t matter because of we all experience birth, and death we all will experience too. May this Knowledge never depart from our very Existence. Shalom!
