Ever notice that there are some people that just want to tell others about their religion. I’m not specifically referring to evangelizing, try to convert someone, just that they. love talking about church, their pastor, the most recent sermon, or something else related.

It’s never considered that the person they are conversing with just may not care. In fact, maybe that other person  holds different beliefs or none at all.

Why do people seem to need religion? I would call that a question of the ages. Of course, if we ask anyone who is a believer, whether they are Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, etc., they may have a variety of answers to the question. Overall, I think it’s more of a tradition.  Their parents, grandparents, and even before were that religious and it is simply something they were taught as small children to accept.
