Essay about Religion

“In the beginning was the word, and the word was God.”

There are many religions in the world, the largest of which are Christianity, Islam and Buddhism.

My attitude to any religion cannot be negative, although I profess one faith, and this is Orthodoxy. I have been professing Orthodoxy since birth, because I was born in an Orthodox family. I like my religion, I love my God. I do not think that a person can love or not love his religion, because almost everyone (overwhelmingly) is given it at birth.

In a conscious age, a person can judge his faith, can change it, or simply become an atheist. Personally, I do not see any difference between religions (with the exception of the name of the holidays, the number of their celebrations, as well as religious rites), because God is one, but different peoples call it differently, and I believe that the problem is rooted at the very beginning of human existence, from the time of the construction of the Tower of Babel, because according to legend, earlier on Earth there was a single language and a single nation, which means that God is one. Each nation added something from itself to holidays, ceremonies, and, the former single faith began to branch out to separate religions.

Despite the fact that there are many different religions in the world, people should live in peace and harmony, not despising other people’s canons and respecting another religion.
