I'm not sure I agree that religion is the cause of "most" wars.
To the best of my knowledge the two World Wars (WWI and WWII) were not caused by religion.

And historically, many of the "religious" wars were not really caused by religion. People just used religion as an excuse to go to war for other reasons, such as land, power, etc...

No one will ever be able to say that Christians - least those truly following the Bible's teachings - ever STARTED a war. Course, they may well have to respond in defense. But as for people who merely CALL themselves Christians but aren't truly following Christ or have deviated from His Word and teachings - yeah, those people can easily start wars. And we must remember, Christianity is NOT a religion! (ALL religions are filled with lies and false teachings - even though often mingled with some good things (which is how lies best take root, when attached to some level of truth).

Yea but sadly because we have people using the bible for evil many are saying it would be better to not have religion. But that's not true. Has many were indeed land not religion.
