Read this with an open mind. The aim of the piece is to dive into the question : “Which religion/belief is the right one, and who says so?”
“REPENT, REPENT OR BURN IN HELL” , this line mostly advocated by Christians. It is displayed in public or confined in church buildings. Religion, according to Chapter 2, Section 15 of the Constitution of South Africa is the entitlement of every citizen of South Africa . This of course comes with the responsibility of not infringing on other people’s beliefs and boundaries. So why are devil worshippers chastised in public when practising their rights to worship?
The devotion that one gives to God or Satan is rightfully governed by the republic, whether opposing organisations or religions believe in the power of the other deity or not. Islam has its Quran, Christianity has its Holy Bible and Satanists have The Satanic Bible – so why the condemnation? Is this what and where the heart of religion lies? That if you do not believe in “MY” God, then the automated response is to tell them where to burn.
Music is a manner of expressing forms of emotions, thoughts and pivotal societal issues and its packaging caters for different people with different musical ears, so should religion with its many gods.
IT IS possible to not condemn other people’s religion and instead respect or tolerate the forms of worship and devotions to their gods, whilst serving your God. Why you may ask? Because it’s you right to (and with it comes responsibilities) and ‘çoz South Africa says so in its highest and fundamental law.
