    1. No.

    2. Some of them are peddling whatever they think people want to hear. Others teach us the words of eternal life.

    3. What? That wasn't a question.

    4.. Religion, properly used, is another methodology for discovering truth.

    5. Religious people? Some of us minister to the spiritual needs of God's children. Others of us prostitute it into a way to make money.

    6. The point of religion is to help us become more like God.

    7. Don't know, don't really care.

    Kanye West and Joel Osteen are both false teachers leading people away from the truth.  And they're both making big money doing it.

    Nobody can be good enough to avoid hell. The truth is that death leads to immediate heaven or hell, depending only on whether the person believed in Jesus for eternal life, or not.

    .

    The truth is that Jesus loves you and wants to bless your life freely :) Most of all, Jesus wants you with Him forever, and not in hell. The truth is that every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that Jesus is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing in Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47), without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). Believe in Jesus to take you to heaven, and you will be in heaven, no matter what, guaranteed. That easy, thanks to Jesus! Tell Jesus that you thank Him that you will be with Him in heaven when you die, because you believe in Jesus! It is too late to be saved, after death

    Humans have parents until their parents die. Then who takes care of them? They have an urge to believe that there must be some super-power looking after them. Some believe that they must appease the super-power (perhaps throw some friend in a volcano to get the volcano to quiet down). They make up stories about how the God(s) will get you if you don't donate. This is a money ploy but also common around the whole world, and this is why almost every part of the world believes in some religion. Whose religion is right? Well, almost everyone was brought up with a religion, and everyone thinks that they were very very lucky to have been brought up with the right religion. If you try to talk to the religious about other religions, they will tell you that those other religions are nonsense (not realizing that their own religion is nonsense, too).

    Religion is a system to control common people, to enrich the hierarchy and furnish young people to the clergy for sex.

    Joel Osteen is a false teacher, and I haven't heard Kanye West say that he has believed in Jesus Christ for the free gift of eternal life. Just claiming to be a Christian does not make one a Christian. According to the Bible, one must be born again through faith in Jesus Christ (John 3:7).

    Because we have all sinned against a perfectly holy and righteous God, we all deserve eternal separation from God in hell (Rom. 6:23). However, God loves us so much that He sent His only Son Jesus to die on the cross as our Substitute so we don't have to go to hell. Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose from the grave three days later (1 Cor. 15:3-4). He gives eternal life freely to anyone who simply believes in Him. No one can be saved by doing good works. Salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone (Eph. 2:8-9).

    "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life" (John 6:47).

    Yes, all of religion is a fraud.  But it's a useful fraud that keeps people in line and extracts money from them.

    Religion comes in many forms. From believing in a almighty being looking after us all. 

       It also is to me now loving a sport . Say like American football. Either way they get your money.

        It is so many ways from worshiping movies stars or the royal family of Great Britain ( although Britain is not so great any more) 

      Joel Osteens church is just another corporation looking to take your money.

        I am not a athiest . I just think 99% religions have become corrupt.

    Kanye West also believes in eating your own placenta after child birth. Do you really listen to that cannibal ice queen?  Joel Osteen knows there is a whole science behind placebos and dopamines which increases attention span, faith and positive emotions. He knows how to "sell" the Gospel.

    you know how scientology isn't a religion but is considered one? it's because it shares all the characteristics of a religion. cultist mindset, creating an entire story made up of ridiculous lies, demanding monetary donations, claiming that people are inherently evil and offering them the path to redemption, and other brainwash tactics.
