There is the essence of eternity in the Supreme Beings which make them be seen as being very powerful. The idea of the divine reality is very alive among believers of all major religions. There is the cultivation of a close relationship of human beings and the Supreme Being. Human beings engage at different levels in relating with the Supreme Being. The acknowledgement that there is a greater power than them has a sense of relief to them in that they are able to cast their doubts and worries. Valea in his article “The human condition in the world religions” acknowledges the presence of a supreme being. All religions address the issues of creation, life and death (Valea Paragraph 1) though each gives different perspectives it all comes down to a higher being in control of their lives. These beliefs are not different from what I hold. It makes me appreciate other religions and acknowledge the role they have in shaping society. Religions serve the purpose of inculcating morals in people. This is attributed to the concern of the Supreme Being and a goal to fellow man in carrying out daily duties.All believers regardless of their religion identify with the divine reality. Valea poses questions that the touch on the relationship of man and the Supreme Being. These questions are touching on the essence of being and invite us to think more of a relationship with the Supreme Being. This is seen in the belief that the Supreme Being transcends all other things. This is an aspect shared by all major religions of the world. Through this aspect, we get to understand the powerful nature of our God in the sense that all other faiths describe just as we do. Our interactions with others are solely based on religion. For our Christians, our greatest motivation in serving God is through love for God and neighbor. This is a commandment that Jesus gives so many times in the course of his ministry. He seems to summarize the Christian doctrine in one word “love." He challenges us in Mathew 22:36-40, “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” Jesus said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is as it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets”.It is every society’s wish to live in harmony. Religion ensures that people live peacefully by
