Many of the people living on this plant are religious. The most popular religion is Christianity followed by Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Confucianism. But, there are also about one billion people who state that they do not practice any religion on a regular basis, or that they are atheists.
It does not matter if you are religious or not, because we have gathered some of the most interesting quotes on religion that suit both the religious and non-religious ones of you.
Anyone who thinks sitting in church can make you a Christian must also think that sitting in a garage can make you a car. ― Garrison Keillor
This is one of the greatest quotes on religion said by Garrison Keillor. He suggests that it is not enough to perform the specific activities related to your religion, such as going to church regularly or praying, etc. People also need to be religious in their heart, and to do acts of kindness, and everything that their religion implies. It is merely acceptable to go to church, to pray, but it is absolutely not enough. One must also have a pure heart, or at least they must try to keep their heart as pure as it can be. This can only be achieved by showing people kindness, even if they do not reply with kindness.
Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous. ― Albert Einstein
In the above quote on religion that refers to God, Albert Einstein implies that whenever something good happens to us, whenever we are inclined to believe that is was just a coincidence, we must also consider the possibility that it is an act made by God. God does not make his presence felt in an obvious way. Instead, he acts without us knowing, or even guessing that it was Him. Many acts of God are done in such a way so that they are not obvious and they are considered mere coincidences, or luck.
My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness. ― Dalai Lama
This is probably the greatest of all quotes on religion said by Dalai Lama and is perfect for those non-believers, for those who affirm that they do not believe in anything. You do not really need to believe in something, you do not need to adhere to any religion; all you need to do is to be kind. This is the best religion of them all. And anyone of us can be kind, every day, in any possible way. Being kind, helping everyone you can, doing well, in general is the best thing you can do for yourself, for your soul and for others, as well.
