Why It’s Important to Study Other Religions

Why is it important to study religions, even if you disagree/don’t believe in them? Well, I give you a few reasons why.

For starters, it’s good to study religions so you know more about them, even if you don’t agree with them. This could help you understand points of view from the people with that religion better. And if you are in school, it could also help you with some essays or papers about that religion.

It is also important to study about religion (this mostly applies to larger religions like Christianity or Islam) because of how big they are. You cold be curious on what makes these religions so big, and that could be a driving reason on why you would want to study them

  1. I mostly agree. We should understand someone’s view point before disagreeing in everything. But I don’t believe Jesus is a religion. Because He called the religious people and the pharisees hypocrites. And I don’t believe He agreed with religion then or now. The apostle Paul said he used to be religious but then repented and turned to Jesus instead of Religion (Acts 25 – 27). When Jesus made disciples He simply told them to follow Him. He said nothing about religion. However like you said it is good to study them for multiple reasons.
