20 Beautiful Free Religion Based Vector DesignsReligion is something that has been considered sacred since time immemorial. You can criticize a person's fashion sense, his political affiliations, his food habits but you can't criticize one's religion. Religion is considered above any rebukes. Though today things are changing. Especially in the west. People like Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens and Sam Harris have waged a full-fledged attack on religion. The results are stunning. More and more people in the western countries are proclaiming that they don't have a belief in any supernatural power and are coming out as atheists and agnostics.The religious people accuse the non-believers of being irreligious and thus having no moral code. The skeptics on the other hand accuse the religious people of being dumb and blindly following the teachings of their religious scriptures. Who knows which of them are correct? In any case, religion is here to stay. And so are websites, books, cards, and other such material related to it. Below I have collected 20 beautiful religion related vectors which you can use in your designing work.
Wax seal of the Sabbath"Thou shalt keep the Sabbath Day holy!" is the third commandment out of the famous Ten Commandments of the Bible. God says in this commandment that he created the universe in six days and then rested on the seventh day. Hence people should not work on this day as God has blessed it and it is considered holy. This beautiful seal lets you proclaim the third commandment in style.
Ramzan greeting cardsRamzan is approaching. This is a month in the Islamic calendar where legend has it that Satan is under arrest by God and hence people should be more concerned to obey Him and His teachings.

This vector set consists of some beautiful Ramzan greetings which you can use in your work.

Demon footageThe Abrahamic religions say that Satan whispered in Adam’s ear and urged him to eat the apple from the forbidden tree which angered God and resulted in Adam’s expulsion from heaven. They also believe that Satan is still living and present amongst us and is urging us to deviate away from the righteous path. Just as he was hostile against Adam so he is against the sons of Adam. This vector graphic of Satan can be used in any design which intends to portray evil.
Einstein, just like most other scientists, did not believe in God. The word "spirit" in this quote above means nature. That is all. It is always wise to use a quote from some authority in your designs. It gives it a good touch.
