Would it be prudent to ask if our diverse institutions, especially that of religion, of the longest standing, whichever faith any of us belong to, is meeting our needs for growth and evolution as human(e) beings?
Every religion has been through a process of birth, growth, and change in its own evolution. It has brought us to this point where we are still striving for understanding our own species with tolerance of varying degrees.
As human beings, we must in our lives, change with the times, and in our later years grow in detachment from earthly dependencies. Right?
Shouldn’t Religion as a major institution, also do the same for its growth. Don’t you think it must guide us out of consumerism? Infact, it must set an example by freeing itself from its own wants, needs, and competition.
Obviously then, religion must not be a game of numbers. Therefore, how do we evolve with religion to guide people to the next higher level of human evolution, which cannot be in the realm of competition.
