Query on Religion

Isn’t it odd that every religion seems to give the same destination: heaven after a long struggle? How have these religions managed to convince, enrol and control followers over the centuries, when all they are saying to the already downtrodden, beleaguered and impoverished people, is that give up your life and loyalty to us and struggle harder, toil with your blood, sweat and tears and when you die you will enter a happy heaven?

      Well it offers something that few other institutions or communities offer – a sense of belonging, security really. An illusion of course but it’s a very powerful need in human beings.
