PEOPLE DIVIDE !

I would not single out religion as the one and only.

Ideologies, like communism and capitalism, colors like black and white, rich and poor, have caused people to divide, too.

Religion is the hope of eternal life.

And love for present life.  Love for people.  Love for enemy.  This is true religion.

The nexus between religion and church?

Thanks for the interesting response. Let's talk about this a bit more.

Several of you actually share the same viewpoint though you expressed it in different ways, that religion binds people together within the same faith but divide people where the faith (belief) differs.

If Christianity is a faith and a religion, then Christianity should bind Christians together, likewise, Islam should bind Muslims together. Some religions share the same root, for example the Torah and the Bible have the first five books in common.

Yet Christianity is divisive by and within itself, so we have different churches. There's the Catholic Church, the Anglican, the Protestant and so forth. Likewise, Islam has the Sunni and the Shi'ite sects. And with that, we had and continue to have wars.

Is it really religion which cause wars or churches which cause wars?

And even before we ask that question, isn't the existence of the many churches proof that religion is divisive?

What is the nexus between religion and churches?
