We are not to live longer
Start living by Qur’an, the only perfect and detailed book of guidance on earth.
Please remember
ISLAM  is not a new religion and Qur’an is not the first book of Islam. The only religion prescribed for the mankind and carried forward by Hadrat Abraham  (peace be upon him) is ISLAM. Qur’an is the last and final book in the series of Divine Books.
Non-Muslim descendents of Adam (as) may also update their faith and follow the latest version of Divine laws.

  Latifchaudherry has written an informative piece on Islam. And while I respect his views about his religion, I also respect the views that others have of their religious beliefs.
             The problem that religions present is not their beliefs but those who practice these beliefs.Mankind has killed and persecuted each other because of religion from the dawn of time, while at the same time claiming love or the worship of a loving God. Muslims and Christians especially have tended to ppersecute those who do not follow the teachings. 
              If religious people of whatever faith would follow Jesus' teachings that we should love our God,  and our neighbour as ourselves.  We would spend more time on doing good and less time on hurting others.God is Love . Whatever name we may give that love. The important thing is to practice the things of Love. Mankind is unable to practice true love so he replaces it with silly laws and rules as an excuse to oppress others.

That's an interesting post. But isn't religion mostly about laws and rules, as well as the consequences for not following them? In my opinion, the Big Three religions (Christianity, Judaism and Islam) are. I do not know enough about other religions to make a more widespread generalization, but it seems to me to be a cornerstone of religion.
Another interesting point that you bring is the love vs destruction side of religion. You speak of Jesus' words but I think most religions incorporate a peaceful message. On the other hand religions also incorporate a lot of violence that seems from another age. Just an example from each of the Big Three: the bible talks about killing a child that talks back to his parents (Matthew 15:1-6)... The Torah (Deut 20:16-18) about killing men, women and children (and animals as well, if taken literally), and the Quran about beheading non believers and cutting off their fingers (Surah 8:12).
How do you know when to follow the peaceful message or the violent one? If you must make your own choices then does religion fail at its role to lay out laws and rules?

Laurent; One of the most simple religion is Christianity. Christ when He was on earth taught his followers to love one another. He sought to show that the teaching of Judaism was cumbersome and only sought to lay burden on its followers. It was after His death that some of his followers started to impose rules and regulatins into the doctrine. The Catholic Church is the one mainly respondible for doing so. This caused many to break away form their teachings and so we have the start of the different denominations.{Because the reply colume is small quotes and references present an problem}. But I can assure you that the founder of most religions did not start them with the elaborate rites that are now practiced in them. Research will show that it  is the priest of these religions who has formulate these rule for their own importance.How do you know whom to follow. Would you be a member of the Nazi or the Salvasion Army? the Black Panther movement or Martin Luther King peace movement? We have conscience we should use it wisely.
