It’s time to get holy, holy, holy with the easiest religions to study, convert to and follow.
I went to Catholic school at the beginning of my life. It brought to me some interesting experiences. The best was having a separate gym class uniform and the worst was getting in deep trouble for squirting juice drink into a plastic bag of grapes. I also enjoyed the parade on All Saints day, when we would dress up as our name saint and walk through the school singing “Oh When the Saints Come Marching In.” My saint was martyred in a vat of boiling tar. Unfortunately for my creative costuming ideas, we were meant to come in dressed the way the saint lived, not the way they died.
Everyone believes something different I guess. That statement is obviously true about a high being or religion. People around the globe have their own beliefs. There are so many choices as to what religion you want to practice.
As a child, the religion your parents practice is the religion you practice as well. That is why I was stuck NOT getting the Confirmation name of my choosing. When you reach the age where you can choose your own, you may stick to what you practiced since you were a kid or you may convert to a religion of your choice. If you are interested in converting–if you like dressing up in a sheet and singing, Catholicism has room!–you must first evaluate the tenets of the religion. You must think deliberately about where your beliefs match up and if you are willing and able to follow the rules or restrictions of practicing the faith. Of course, you must be serious in this endeavor and not disrespectful to those who have chosen it–whether or not it’s right for you.
The religion that has the greatest followers around the world is Christianity. This includes Catholics and Protestants. We also have Islam, Hinduism, and Judaism. They are dominant in respective countries, for example, Hinduism is the majority religion in India.
Certainly, religion is also one of the reasons why some people are divided–it is often a reason for conflict, war, and discrimination. For example the immigration ban from the executive order signed by President Donald Trump. This affects seven Muslim countries and extends to 90 days while the ban on admission of refugees is 120 days. Religion should not be a reason why we are not united, instead it should be a way to understand that so many of us humans believe in God, Allah, Buddha, and other terms we call the Almighty–or we don’t and that’s okay too. Religion should not be the reason why bullying starts, it should be a way of accepting the diversity in us. Religion should be the root of respect and understanding.
Although I have mentioned a few religions already which could be included in our list, we have gathered the processes on how easy it is to study, convert to and follow specifics religions. They have different ways for you to be indoctrinated in their faith. Some need serious understanding and practice before you are recognized, others just require the feeling of wanting to follow the religion as sufficient, then you are already in, or “more easily” allowed to become a member.
The ones on this list of easiest religions to study, convert to and follow are those that don’t require others to convert. Since religion is growing we can also evaluate which are gaining members at the quickest rate. To do so, check out our article on the 5 Fastest Growing Religions in Europe and the World.
We ranked them by requirements. Some religions take the time to convert, like Judaism, which requires 2 years; for others, like Islam, you have to learn new language to read Quran. Therefore for the purposes of this list the easiest are the ones that don’t have many rituals or scriptures to learn for new members.
Without further ado, here is our list of easiest religions to study, convert to and follow.
