    True Religion will meet the SIX basic needs of Human Spirituality

    1. Builds up people morals

    2. Builds up people family happiness

    3. Promotes love

    4. Promotes peace

    5. Satisfying purpose in life

    6. Promotes worship to the creator rather than creation.

    Although the spiritual needs are not being met and religion is declining, this does not mean that all religion has failed human society.

    True religion will always meet the needs of Human Society – It will never FAIL!

    Welcome Shibboleth, glad to have you join us at Destee.com, make yourself at home.

    To say that Religion is declining is understandable, however, to say that spiritual needs aren't being met by those Religions that are maintaining, so to speak, isn't so clear to me.

    How do you support such a position?

    Otherwise, the six point philosophy you've outlined is accurate.

    The position is supported by the facts that the six points that were outlined are not being met on a spiritual level by religion. Morality is not being affected for the good. Peace is not being promoted, as world's religion often foster war. Family happiness is elusive for millions despite their religion, etc . . .

    To say that all religion fails to meet the needs of followers, as you've outlined, is a strong statement to make merely supported by words alone.

    Allow me to ask one's concept of "True Religion", in contrast to a presumed "False Religion"?
    Because in reading this, "False Religions" can be recognized by the antithesis of these "six basic needs of human spirituality".

    Without using these six, what does one convey as "True and False Religion"?

    Ok that's basic enough.

    And when one says "benefits", is this a universal understanding or a personal understanding?
    The intent that offers: "for the greater good", is the base of utilitarianism.

    It's what you, I and mankind experience on a whole, so both. Would you not Agree? Is the spirituality of mankind being meet? If not why not? If so how so?

    Although the spiritual needs are not being met and religion is declining, this does not mean that all religion has failed human society.

    True religion will always meet the needs of Human Society – It will never FAIL!

    Why or how so? Because as long as YHWH (Jehovah God) exist so will his word and as long as his words exist so will the true faith.

    To say that it does not exist is to say that God is dead or is to weak to meet the needs of Human Society. It's up to YOU! Every man, women and child to find out by first taking your emotions and personal feelings out of the equation and to see what faith/religion is meeting those six basic needs in today's society.
