Many people look to religion in times of trouble. When life seems particularly hard or stressful, people pray that things will get better. Some pay a visit to their local church to seek spiritual guidance, some find this helps them and they take to visiting the church on a regular basis.
Many find that it opens a whole new world to them, they meet new friends, so what might seem like a low period in their lives can grow to be something new and wonderful. But can religion really help?
Do religions really help?
The simple answer is that it is all relative. Some people find that following their chosen religion helps to clear their mind, offers them the guidance that they need in order to move on from their troubles or give them an inner peace they have been missing in their lives. Others may find that it doesn’t help at all.
It is all to do with faith, and there is no right or wrong answer. Not everyone feels that there is a God in any form and therefore praying to one for help is pointless. They may find the answers to their problems in other ways.
