Finding Commonality in Religions

© 2011 Grace Ste. Croix

May 23, 2011

With many diverse beliefs across the spectrum, we often find that religion in general separates us from one another. There are many different view points, religions, and even still, many people do not follow a religion at all. However, we can find commonalities in every major religion, including those that do not believe at all.

Generally, we can agree on these simple factors: be good to others, do not harm yourself or others, and know that we are a part of a bigger picture. These three points are the foundation to finding a relation between yourself and someone from another religion.

In societies that have a diverse people, we will encounter many religions and belief systems quite different from our own. It is difficult without knowledge of other religions to find a relation to one another. However, by following our three simple points, we can assure a basic commonality between people.

The comparison of the similarities of each religion to one another would be a series of many books. Intricate knowledge of each faith requires years of study and dedication to the cause. However, rest assured, loving others, doing no harm to others and being a part of something vast and great will be the basis of every major religion. In est, we are all brothers and sisters and we can embrace the differences and show appreciation for the commonality.
