Having faith and belief
94) Believing is something we mostly do correlate with religion. And viewing it in this sense is becoming a bit tricky when we connect it with the knowledge we have acquainted ourselves with today. After all, many do belief in G-d, but quite a few don't. Some belief that justice has been served while others won't accept the same conviction. Both are beliefs, but the one is in G-d while the other is found within a person's view on matters related to the law. So even when they seem to have no connection with each other, they still do because the common denominator is the fact that they belief in the same conception. It means that we can't really keep on assuming that a person who beliefs in G-d should be regarded as a religious human being. If so, then the one who only does so in the system of law of his/her nation should be viewed as a religious man or woman as well. If the one is, then the other must be too. If the other is not, then the one can't be neither. It's the most logical assumption. And it reveals that we in reality can't assume to be religious, or we all are, even the one who views him-/herself as being a non-believer, or atheist. It in a certain way puts the entire definition of religion under review. Or being part of a religion has entered our mind out of a necessity to corner different groups of people into their imaginative box with regard to their religious conviction. Somehow we seem to have inadvertently imprisoned almost everyone, with the people of the Judaic faith as the exception to this case. In reality, we can only regard every human being as a believer in what s/he beliefs. And that will be his/her religion so to speak, the same as it was for the Romans, the Greeks, the Philistines, the Egyptians, the Assyrians, the Persians, and so many more. They all followed the laws of their god(s), of what they believed in as a believer. But even today we still say of people that they are religious, and now we perhaps could utter tomorrow that they are believers in their god, or in G-d. Some will do so by the thought of the soul, and others will solely follow the guidance of their mind. Whatever path people will take, there is only one that leads to the very human being we had or have to become, and be or become a true light unto others, Jew and gentile alike. Yeah, what we belief in is not a religion, it's a belief that has been named a religion by our mind, not our soul, the same as one can have faith in a justice system.
