“Organized religions create separateness.”
Christian theology claims that God is outside of you and you're a sinner from birth. If you go to their church they will absolve you of your sins. This is an attempt to control and manipulate people to do what the Christians want.
Some religions started out with good intentions. The founders were enlightened and saw the need to raise the consciousness of human beings.
Then fear based control and greed took over, resulting in the opposite of the original intention. Fear of what could happen to you as a nonbeliever is one example.
Millions of people have died because of their religious beliefs.
Most people believe their religion is best because that is what they're taught.
Beliefs are only habits of thoughts.
If Christians were born in Iran they would be Muslims. If Muslims were born in the Western world they would be Christians. If you were born and raised in China you'd speak Chinese.
Change your thoughts - your beliefs will change.
Religion is a necessary evil
Religion is a Young Soul activity. Every Spirit must experience religions to evolve (develop into maturity).
Church does have its benefits. For example my mother looks forward to attending church every Sunday with feelings of contentment and happiness. She enjoys listening to her Pastors sermons and seeing her friends.
The message from the pulpit, especially in Christianity and the Muslim religions: "Suffering doesn't matter, you’ll get your rewards in Heaven."
There is an option to being a religious follower. Put aside what you've learned from false teachings. Connect with your heart to find your own truths. Meditation
"To pray is to talk. To meditate is to listen."
