When someone is using religion to better themselves, their families, and their communities, that shows the principles of religion are being employed in the right way. I don't have a problem with such people and their belief system.

When religion is being used to be superior, hostile, insular, or competitive, this religion is not good. I am skeptical of people motivated in this way.

I completely understand your position. I am merely trying to get a definition of "the Faith of God and His religion" because imo there is no such thing as his religion. There is man's hardwired attempt to understand the infinite when living in a finite body. Thus religions appear to inevitably become as opposed to his religion, my our our religion which degenerates into the "true faith" nonsense. The golden rule which appears in the Old Testament as well as in other faiths is something that should be a motivator for people. Unfortunately for many it is not or it is limited to their particular tribe, group, religion.

It is amazing how two people can attend the same religious services with the same religious leader yet come to two different applications of how to apply religion in their lives. And if someone is truly looking for a reason to be superior or insular, they can find a religion to fit that need.

But we should also look at people who have used their religion to overcome hardships or build a better world. Unfortunately these instances do not make the mass media that often.
