Every time i turn around i'm hearing about Isis or priests molesting kids, Jihads,scandals of all types in the churches etc. When i grew up i was taught that god is good but you had to play by the rules or there are consequences for your actions. Myself and a lot of my friends,family etc tried to live by the rules and do right but nowadays i'm starting to think that religion (not god) will be the ruination of the human race and my beliefs are really on the skids. Is organised denominational religion still good for society or are those days gone and now religion is about greed and people getting what they want at the expense of others as well as a reason to justify killing? I know these factors have always existed to a degree but has the balance shifted drastically from the good side to the bad side? To me it seems like lately religion is causing more problems that its helping. Am i reading things wrong? If so what can be done to renew ones faith in the church and put the craziness into some type of perspective?
