Many seminars, conferences and lecture halls are filled with intellectual people giving accounts to the significance of faith, its participation in the society and also how to it came to presence and eventually become part of a man’s life. The teachings generally are often very exciting especially if you have never set foot in a social science class that involves religion and historical human life but is still inquisitive.
Well, religion is basically a strong belief to the supernatural power that has authority over man’s destiny. There is not any human anywhere across the world that could predict his own destiny or anyone else for that thing and that is why faith existed to maintain our faith in check and give us hope for a better tomorrow. As much as it has also been an excuse for war and persecution, but in its pure character it’s also brought quite a number of benefits in the society and encouraging integrity is only one of them.
One of the fundamental principles of religion is equality. Human beings living under the sun were meant to be equal since basically at the end of the day bled the same color of blood and were also still mortal to anything that could take their life away. It’s through such sort of teachings that attracted awareness to the members of society and many historical injustices like slavery and racism came to a halt and for once, there was harmony and peaceful coexistence. Consequently, through religion there has also become a spirit of forgiveness in burying the last misunderstanding and healing wounds and providing more attention to the future.
Other than that, the principle of selfless service also cuts across all of the principal religions as members are encouraged to get sympathy towards others and extend selfless service without expecting any reward of any sort in return to boost their ego. Not only does it promote unity but also humility in people’s lives. It is through such teachings that there are quite a range of organizations involved with charitable activities.
People’s general wellbeing be it physical or mental can be enhanced through faith. Certain activities like fasting might help in strengthening your faith to your maker but also quite helpful in giving your body time to get rid of the toxins which you could be full of it throughout the daily crap food that we consume on daily basis. Keep in mind that such toxins are the ones that contribute to the lifestyle diseases such as heart related diseases and high blood pressure not to mention obesity that we experience today.
The emotional health is also an additional advantage which can’t be ignored as people have a tendency to be stronger than ever as soon as they know that somebody is always watching over them and their barriers are just mere life challenges that they’ll soon succeed over.
