The great days of religion maybe have lost its way

In general, religious holidays, like the Easter, Eid is the momentum of worship in which spilled all joyful gratitude to God. It is always celebrated by the followers of earlier until today. They reveal all the meaning of worship to God according to their allegation that their actions can attach themselves to God. But among the followers preferring blank deeds, not useful and more inclined to their lust desires, the celebration with expensive symbols may have ignore the real purpose of the religious moment. Thus, the celebration of religious holidays through a procession of worship and sermons are less able to inspire followers in how to live according to the teachings of religion.
Let us read, Crime Statistics 10 countries with the highest rate of crime such as murder, robbery, violence, chaos and death, the Countries may include majority Christian state, Hindu or Muslim, perhaps the majority of atheists such as USA, IRAQ, Afghanistan. Soviet. India. By Hindustan Time, every 14 hours, there was a sexual violence against women in India, including the rape that led to the murder. (http://lifestyle.kompasiana.com). This data shows that the religious great day is questionable whether it still has a meaning.
In the next will arrive Easter Day. As in previous years might be like the usual routine that will pass. Message is just stand for apparent message. Commitment to step forward to live in the truth of God is only in words. In the warning message oh the words of God is meaningless, such as seasonal events, which disappeared along with the expiration of the celebration. We are back in the routine activities of life, struggles of life, as a result we may often lose direction where the goal of our life. It is no wonder, moral decay, crime, corruption and other crimes still occur, even increasing.
When we look, it is partly done by those who are educated and have grown up in religious families. Compare if someone sneer, in a dialogue, some participants questioned why more and more people go pilgrimage in the holy place, but corruption is increasing! Lest the core problem is the same, all religious activity was only routine or obligations that do not require a commitment to life changes in the truth of God.
