New study raises questions about religion as deterrent against criminal behaviour.

Let’s be honest, if all religion is about is conversion to doctrine, then this study is bang on. It becomes one more tool of justification in the crime spiral. BUT and this is a huge shift for any religious, if it is truly about journeying with another, discipling, and working towards a transformed life…then this study falls apart because true reconciliation and restoration with community and self is possible.
