"Imagine, for a moment, a world where religion never existed, for whatever reason. Its citizens go about their lives having never heard of any religion. In your mind, what would the world be like -- worse, better? Why?"1.
The above comment was part of today's blog post on Atheist Central by Ray Comfort. If you want to read his response to that particular comment, you can go to Atheist Central and do so. But I thought I would give you my point of view also.
Personally, I would love a world without religion. A world without religion would be a world completely devoted to God and His Word. In a sense, all non-believers are religious. Yes, even atheism is a religion. But Christianity, however, isn't religion, but reality.
No matter how much you deny God's existence, He will always be there. No matter how much you deny the truth of His Word, it will always be true. We were created by God for God. We were created for His glory, not our own. When we turn from our sin and trust Jesus as Savior, we enter into a relationship with Almighty God. Our religion is tossed out the window and we are set free.
So, a world without religion would be a world free from the dishonesty and unbelief that has so many captive.
