Religion in the Modern Age
Although the bible was written thousands of years ago, its relevancy to our lives had stood the test of time. Even those who claim that in the age of science and technology there isn’t any room left for religion or spirituality, will surely agree that in these estranged times, in this instant world, in which everyone is chasing money and pleasure, the need of faith, guidance and a set of moral principles is increasing.
As technology is getting more sophisticated, many people experience loneliness and emotional erosion. In situations like such, the power of faith lies in its ability to console and heal the hearts. Believing in God is like letting the lighthouse guide your life over a stormy sea, until you reach the shore. The power of God’s infinite love, the forgiveness and the humbleness of faith will carry you during the darkest times. Make room for Jesus in your heart and you will never be alone.
Thousands of years have passed, and still the bible is the number one best seller book worldwide, with fascinating stories of wars and miracles, victories and defeats, kings and simple people, and also poems, legends, prophecies and more. In many ways, the biblical stories reflect the human behavior. This is why the morals stay relevant even after thousands of years. A clear example of this are the countless art pieces, plays, movies, books and music inspired by the biblical stories. In addition to the stories of the bible, also the rules and principles of religion are dealing with the human nature. Some of them, like the ten commandments, are accepted all over the world until this very day.
“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see”.
