Religion has a great importance in the lives of people. Religion is more social than others - political, legal, economic and other relations between people, that is, it is the primary, deep-seated basis of human society. I believe that religious consciousness is the oldest among other types of human consciousness, and human society - as people's awareness of their particular community - arose precisely on the basis of a common religion, while all other forms of the public (state, economy, culture) are already derived, secondary. Therefore, religion is the basis of any sociality, although, as a deep foundation, it is less likely than others to be realized in this role.
In the video, I come to know that Religion acts as the basis of sociality due to the fact that it creates the primary foundations of the public, such as solidarity, freedom, and service. Solidarity is a sense of the common belonging of people to a certain whole, a single “we”, is generated by a single connection between all people and God, in which they first feel like family, community, and people. But in this connection the human person does not disappear. On the contrary, it is the connection between man and God, his God-manhood, that is, a part of the Creator (the image and likeness of God), that which is surely illuminated in every person, gives rise to human freedom.
This freedom, that is, the ability to create, is the only engine of social life, the beginning of human communication. Finally, the beginning of the ministry is the third beginning of the public, which transcends and absorbs the contradictions between society and the individual, helps the society to avoid despotism or anarchy. This beginning has its true meaning, if this service is to the Absolute, and not to some relative values, more precisely, if the service to relative values - the state, the people, ideas, etc. - is based on the service of God's will.
