Should We Stop Thinking When It Comes To God Or Religion?

Most people stop thinking when it comes to god or religion.

Some more so than others, even the most intellectual among them. Adherents of some religions more so than others.

We just blindly believe what we have been told or taught.

Most of us don't even read the religious book upon which our beliefs are said to be based.

It is as if whatever we have been told or taught is the truth, the whole complete truth of the faith we hold to.

It is as if, even if we do read, we must not question what we have been told or taught.

However, most religious books do warn adherents to question and test what they are are told or taught, to test its veracity and truth.

Then, why is it particularly hard for people to entertain the possibility that what we have been told or taught as the religious truth may be a corruption or even a lie?

We would rather swallow everything that is told or taught us than to read and think for ourselves to check against the good book whether indeed what we have been told or taught by the priests, pastors or ulamas is really what the good book says.

If we are hoping to gain the favour of the god of our faith, don't we think that it is mighty important and crucial that we are really following what the true message is and not indeed departing from it?

And indeed, when we do find that we have been lied to or misled all along by the priests, pastors and ulamas and yet we persist in the infamy, do we think god is mocked?

Or are we the fools?

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
