Faith and Belief on region do not reflect in personal characters telling us to think why there is influence on people following them.

Role of Religion and God

My thinking
I use to think when come across news about corruption, frauds, crimes, robbery, murder, rape, molestation and abduction, why religions do not play a role in changing the mind set of culprits and why the criminals do not follow the faith and belief on morals they know and learn. Is it that these erring people delink religion and god faith with activities they indulge in affecting their fellow men or they think that they would not be caught by the police and law or escape punishment arising out of their immoral deeds.
Religion
Though religion is acquired by birth from parents, some convert to other religion when attracted by the preaching, many of us have strong faith in our religion, follow the rituals in birth and death, celebrate birthdays of Gods, donate gifts and money to poor and orphanage and participate in religious discourse and mass, visit religious places on pilgrimage but why these people do not think that their bad deeds are against religion and faith. Knowing it is wrong, what makes them to indulge in unfair practices and suffer later when caught?
Followers
Does religion work in their head? Are they really followers of a religion? Is there any link between a religion and deeds a follower does? Can law alone could restore them to right path, why God and religion one needs? Are they a stamp of a person? These questions reverberate always in my mind and get frustrated looking at people involved in crimes.
Support for criminals
Albeit I hear arguments of situation and circumstances which had been as a cause behind any crime, I do not get convinced such debate because man is a social animal, he can think and act at any point of time, if he is not doing so, he is an animal only and any theories supporting them is rubbish only. A man can lead a clean and perfect life in society and anywhere if he wants and determines to be so. We have seen great leaders and people even today who are role models for their quality, discipline and work.

I find that religion is not a total deterrent against crime, just look at those through time that are 'religious and yet still commit crimes, sadly. I find even if we have religion set in from birth, it still takes the human being making the decision of right and wrong. Though after saying all of that, how can one be religious and still hurt other through crime, they just do not go together. Nice read, thank you for sharing. :0

The role of religion seems to be limited even it is followed. Thanks Denise for reading and sharing your thoughts.

There are many religions , my friend ....and many beliefs ...
I personally am a Christian who believes in the God of the Bible ...
For some , just that statement alone brings about a reaction ...and it is on that... that I rest my case .
Many blessings to you

Thank you Stella Mitchell for sharing your thoughts, my concern is religion and God Belief do not stop a person from doing a crime.

Religion maybe limited. But, being a Christian is not limited. Because being a Christian is all about giving your life totally to God's son Jesus. Because the only way to get to God is through his son Jesus Christ. In living for Jesus is the straight and narrow. Yes, no one ever said it going to be easy. But, some people just don't believe in God that's way they are so unhappy and don't have anybody to lean on to take care of their problems.
