During the current Religious Season, which is distinctive to various Denominations, genuine spiritual as well as mundane Reflection could be Worthwhile

Some people in various countries strenuously express their deepest religious devotions in dress and word, whether in Latin America, the Middle East, or in other regions — but by objective standards, many of the people in these areas are overall the most materially poor in the world.

Could it be, that to many of them, though they do not lack intellect and ability, the crush of everyday life leads them stoically to accept their station in life and to rely on religious teachings that say their rewards surely will come their way in the afterlife…   

Have some religious teachings become pasé, hindering rather than helping certain members of humankind in modern life, and should some teachings to particular groups be de-emphasized and others more emphasized?
