Re-visioning religion will is a series of articles by Jonas Yunus Atlas, which delve deeper into the many misunderstandings surrounding the concept of religion, spirituality and mysticism. These articles are gathered in a Medium Magazine.

The articles will address widespread assumptions on religion which are in urgent need of correction: the idea that religion is more dangerous than other 'secular' ideologies; the idea that the distinction between 'the secular' and 'the religious' makes it possible to describe the world in a meaningful way; the idea that there's a tension between 'faith' and 'science'; the idea that religions are structured through powerful insitutions; the idea that religions can be clearly defined through 'convictions' (dogma's) and 'sets of rules'; the idea that religions are clearly definable; the idea that mysticism/spirituality and religion form opposites.

As the Re-visioning Religion magazine publishes more and more articles it will become clear that all these assumptions cannot be maintained and that they inhibit many people from truly understanding the reality of what is called 'religion'.
