This keeps the followers in a continuing state of fear and compliance.
They are afraid to question the intentions of this invisible being and they are afraid of even expressing their own individuality in many cases. Christians and others are taught that they have virtually no power to do anything except pray, worship and do good deeds.
They are taught to practice self denial and are told that their own will is totally irrelevant. Religious followers believe that they are yielding their will over to a benevolent cosmic individual who has single-handedly created the whole universe and has their best interests at heart when in fact they are handing over their will and freedoms to hidden groups of religious elites for the elites own personal gains.
It appears that religion must constantly degrade and humiliate its followers in order to glorify and elevate its god. Unfortunately many people appear eager to give away their power to authority and seem to have a need and even a desire to be ruled and disciplined by it.
Worshipping gods is futile and is nothing more than an ancient primitive custom practiced by weak minded and superstitious people. It has no place in the 21st century. The reason we have life in this world is to experience life in this world, not to spend our entire lives studying an old book, looking up to the sky and worshipping an invisible ruler in another realm.
The main method by which Christians in particular are trapped and deceived is with the messiah or saviour story. This is linked to the ‘original sin’ story which is designed to impose a large amount of guilt onto the whole of humanity. The believers are then so grateful that they have been saved by the son of God nearly 2000 years before they were born that in some cases they abandon all reason, logic and good judgment to obey and worship this god and his son.
Anyone who believes this story is indeed lost because to believe that a god would send his only son to help us, only to see his son get tortured and murdered, and then instead of unleashing all his wrath, simply absolve us from all crimes past and present, is pure madness to say the least.
Where is the lesson for us in that? What has been achieved? There is no lesson or purpose because it’s all about mass psychological enslavement and disempowerment.
The so called god that we are expected to worship is undoubtedly just a dictator strawman concocted by the religious elites for the purpose of controlling the masses.
If there is a prime creator in this universe then it is unlikely that he would interfere and impose on us by foisting his arbitrary laws, let alone need and demand our frivolous worship and blind obedience. Neither of those things requires any level of mental aptitude or creativity. The intelligence and skills that’s been given to many has gone totally to waste.
Many have lowered themselves to the pointless practice of hero worship.
Furthermore, Christianity, Islam and a few other religions are polarized religions. They are polarized against each other. One is believed to be good and the other is seen as bad. The funny thing is, is that each one thinks that their’s is good and the other’s is bad. In most ways they’re both bad. The only good kind of religion is a neutral and all loving one.
Polarized religions have been devised by influential elite leaders to play the people off against each other. That way the elite can defeat and enslave the population practically without lifting a finger.
Religion is like a drug to some. And they need a 2000 year old hero to save them – from themselves that is!
No God has ever asked anyone to worship him so man’s desire to worship a deity is nothing more than an ego based need to make himself feel useful to a god who otherwise probably has no real use for anything man has to offer.
It’s fairly clear that some people have allowed themselves to become ignorant and dumbed-down by the pompous tradition of religion.
Is prayer effective?
We should be sending positive vibes to each other to heal each other, end wars and foster harmony, not up to the well endowed gods who have no need for it.
CHRISTIANS: GOOD PEOPLE OR UNWARY TOOLS FOR EVIL?
Information leads to knowledge and knowledge is light but there is very little light where information is suppressed or distorted.
Christians etc. believe that they get as much knowledge as they need from their bible/koran etc. but they don’t know
They have allowed themselves to become willing pawns for a dark and tyrannical regime/god whose only interests are control and exploitation.
JESUS: SAVIOUR OR TEACHER?
Jesus tried to teach people to think for themselves and care for each other but Christianity twisted his words around to say that we have to always rely on a single supreme ruler to take care of us and save us whenever we screw up.
Those who do not learn to take care of themselves will need someone else to take care of them for the rest of eternity whereas those who do, can not only take care of themselves but can go on to teach others to do the same, thus it spreads and humanity grows and evolves. The last thing religion wants is for humanity to evolve because then the religious leaders are out of a job.
Humans who do not start thinking for themselves and throw off the doctrine and dogma of religion will never evolve to the next level.
Religious followers ask, how can religion possibly be bad if it honours our God, but once a person learns about the higher truths of the cosmos, and that the jealous, angry and vengeful god concept is a ploy to keep us in submission and stagnation, they will realize that Christianity and other religions are a lie and an abomination to divine creation because they are all about lowering peoples vibration through mass fear, personal disempowerment and forced ignorance and because ignorance leads to evil, ignorance itself is an evil.
The fact that Christianity has been deceiving us is obvious because of the almost total absence of real information about who or what we humans are, where we came from and our purpose – our true history. The creation story in Genesis is a simplistic joke fit for kindergarten students only. It gives no detailed or useful descriptions of the whys and hows of our creation.
All useful information about us as a race has been systematically erased from history by the elites in order to make us think that this world is just some kind of after-thought that God decided to knock-up one rainy afternoon, and that we should feel privileged that he created us at all, and so now we must bow down and thank him and if we don’t then he will get angry and wipe us all out.
Many individuals will look for any opportunity they can get to give away their power and have themselves saved by someone so they don’t have to take responsibility for their own future. Christ was the perfect candidate because he’s no longer around to refute all the half truths and distortions in the bible which were mostly written and doctored hundreds of years after his death.
If it wasn’t for the people’s ignorance and desire to give away their personal power to authority, the entire clergy would be out of a job and would have to start working for a living. Religious ministers also enjoy tax exemptions by the way.
The fact that the god of the bible feels the need to command us to give him love indicates that he’s not entirely confident that the splendour of his works and creations are going to be enough to gain our love so he makes it a commandment just in case.
HEAVEN: PARADISE OR EMPTY PROMISES
As far as they know they’ll just be worshipping God at his feet for the rest of eternity. That is not a proper existence, it is just an endless state of servitude, but it doesn’t seem to bother religious followers in the least even though they have no clue what lies beyond this world. Christians are apparently not permitted to ascend in the way that the son of God does.
When they go to the after life they simply go from one life of servitude to another.
The real reason Christians cannot ascend is because they are living and experiencing someone else’s truth, not their own truth. They have been taught by their religion to live and experience the truth of a tyrannical text based god and to just blindly obey him. They may never realize and experience their true potential, and living one’s own truth is essential in order to evolve and grow.
We are not here to get to know God, we are here to experience all that can be experienced and to develop our own potentials and to sort out our differences so that we can learn to co-exist peacefully. In this world, our world, anything goes. We get to do what we want. We are here to make a statement about who we are. Here we get to write our own script for living. This is our stage and our show. A true creator would not interfere with its creation’s natural development. Only a satanic god would.
Another major reason why Christians cannot evolve or ascend is because they have allowed themselves to be trapped in the low vibration of fear, prejudice, judgment and ignorance because of what they’ve been taught. As mentioned before, fear is the basis of all negative emotions and has the lowest vibrational frequency. Because the higher realms consist of high frequency vibrational energy, one has to have equal vibration in order to merge into there.
Until one releases themselves from fear based emotions, they will remain trapped in the cycle of this mortal dimensional matrix indefinitely. What Christians don’t know is that even though they will probably get to go to their heaven as promised, the Christian heaven resides in the astral plane in the fourth or fifth dimension and is therefore still part of our earthly matrix, so they won’t actually be too far away.
When they die and go to their astral plane heaven, they will only stay there for a short time and then they will cycle back down into this world again through reincarnation (which by the way is one of the many concepts that have been removed from the bible by the church fathers). True heaven is not a place that you go to but a state of mind and is something that one makes for ones self. The horrible truth is that religion is all about keeping its followers spiritually marooned in this dark matrix forever.
Religion constantly warns its followers to avoid hell but at the same time is ambiguous about exactly what one has to do to get to hell or heaven. This can only lead to fear, confusion and division among the population. Also each religion says totally different things which then causes even more confusion and conflict. The same goes for many other concepts which religion professes to know about.
Christians are constantly tempted with heaven and threatened with hell and then they’re told that they have a choice – a “free choice” in fact (and also “free will” by the way (???)). This choice can be compared to the choice that a robber gives his victim – “your money or your life”. Christians are so brainwashed that they cannot see that this is not a choice but an ultimatum, which makes the claim of “free choice” an outright lie for a start. A choice is between two or more viable and amicable options. Death or eternal suffering is not a viable or amicable option.
There is no future for someone who goes to hell and so it can never be a valid choice, it is merely a cowardly threat (given that we are small defenseless creatures). The god of the bible is an expert at making demands, threats and empty promises while hiding in another realm. Eternal worship and simple servitude are also not proper choices because worship and servitude are not proper ways to exist for an intelligent, creative and resourceful soul.
Another choice Catholics in particular are given is whether to have children after getting married or not. If they choose not to have children then once again they are threatened with possible eternal torture in hell. In a world with so much stress and money problems, God could be a little more understanding. It appears that religion is more of a slave production line than a loving family.
Christians are told lies that only one person can ever, and has ever ascended, and that is Jesus Christ, the purported only son of God. Jesus may have existed but he couldn’t have been God’s only son because there would be something wrong a with god who has only ever managed to produce one offspring.
Many religions say that only a select few will make it to heaven and be with God. This is called exclusivism or elitism and is definitely not healthy for a society. It seems clear that the god of the bible, if he exists, is a tyrant and not the creator of all that is.
While a person continues to be a fundamentalist Christian, he/she can never evolve or ascend.
SIN: EVIL OR JUST ANOTHER SCARY WORD?
Many Christians point out that the word’s exact translation means ‘miss the mark’, which wouldn’t make any sense because the bible also says that the price of sin is death. Why would a creator torture and kill its creations just for missing the mark?
Believers believe that early man managed to somehow figure out exactly what this deity’s likes, dislikes and will are through some visions, dreams and disembodied voices, and they believe that if we don’t do exactly what he wants then he waits until we’re dead and then he severely punishes us for putting a dent in his precious plans to gain some extra love and companionship for himself. It seems that this god is rather selfish as well as egotistical.
That would be no surprise.
A deity who can only get people to love him by making them really dumb (putting them into human form) cannot be a wonderful deity in anyone’s language, and a deity who can only forgive people by having his only son brutally mutilated and murdered, not to mention making billions of ordinary humans suffer and die over thousands of years, can only be described as profoundly psychotic and deranged.
And Christians are so indoctrinated that they believe that this is love just because the bible says it is. Anyone who can still think clearly can plainly see that Christianity is totally insane and that the Christian god strawman is himself the very definition of sin.
Humans are not sinners. Humans break divine laws for the same reason they break state laws. They are stressed – they’re in a hurry – they don’t think that the law applies to them. In the case of divine laws they usually do it out of stupidity, ignorance or adventurousness. This is human nature. Why should humans be prosecuted just for being human? We are a young race and we are young at heart. That’s the way we were created. We learn through our mistakes but if we’re constantly threatened with punishment then all we learn is how to be good slaves.
Sin is one of the things that will get a Christian/Muslim into hell. Getting into hell requires little effort other than doing something different to what your religion/deity has told you to do.
There are basically two things that will get you into hell.
Any decent, well intentioned, intelligent, free thinking, independent and self responsible individual can easily end up in hell without any problem.
Going to heaven is easy too but in a different way. You don’t have to do much to go to heaven, only three things.
It requires little intelligent thought. Basically you just have to train yourself to be as obedient as a trained dog. It doesn’t require very many specific acts of good will either.
At least ‘you know who’ didn’t make you burn and suffer for eternity.
FAITH: JUSTIFIED TRUST AND BELIEF OR BLISSFUL IGNORANCE?
Note: This section contains some non original content.
The option to doubt is what gives us the free will to explore all possibilities.
Religious followers put faith in religion’s teachings and then make bunches of wild claims. And they can do that because religion’s claims are so difficult to disprove.
Love is complete acceptance and respect for another’s freedom and choices while always being ready to help them in all ways possible. If we are to believe that the god of the bible is the one true God then it is clear that this god doesn’t love us at all but seeks only to interfere, manipulate and disempower us through fear, imposed ignorance and constant empty promises.
True love is the ability to make others feel special. The Christian god hasn’t exactly succeeded in making any of his followers feel particularly special or valuable.
Everyone is special, but the god of the bible only seems intent on making us all into identical, helpless and miserable sheep with no self will or useful purpose.
God, if he exists, is not of this world and therefore cannot properly communicate or interact with anyone here. Saying that Jesus walked the earth and was God or the son of God is not a valid claim because there is no evidence that Jesus was a bigger part of God than the rest of us are.
There is no evidence that he was the only son of God or even a representative of God except what humans have put into the bible as his purported words.
Evidence of his Godship has been claimed but evidence can be misinterpreted, misrepresented and exaggerated, especially over hundreds or thousands of years. Saying that Jesus was God is nothing more than a far fetched claim by religious zealots who are notorious for making such claims out of passion.
Using a book such as a bible is also not a valid object of authority because there’s no reason to believe that the bible actually contains the creator’s own words, unless of course you want to take the bibles own word for it. Also many words and concepts cannot be properly translated, and the written word can be rewritten, slanted and distorted over time.
The promise of heaven and the threat of hell only really works on children. If everyone were to grow up and drop the fear based ravings of religion and just do onto others as they would have others do onto them then there would be less problems in the world.
DIVINE LAW: JUSTICE OR AN INVITATION FOR MISCHIEF?
The best way to guide someone to do the right thing is to advise them of what is best and then explain to them the consequences of doing things thoughtlessly. Informing the person of some of the pitfalls prompts the person to think and learn about what is best so they can grow in wisdom and experience life with safety.
The best way to learn is to make mistakes and humans make them all the time however the god of the bible does not allow us to take this natural route. The god of the bible does make some provisions for a person to repent if they do decide to be adventurous but in the face of threats, fear and unanswered questions, a sincere repentance is rather difficult.
This often results in residual guilt, and because of ambiguity over what is and isn’t a transgression against God, the person may be left confused, fearful and uncertain about their future. God demands to be loved above all others but under these circumstances true love is hardly possible, especially given that he’s conveniently invisible and unreachable. Strangely, most Christians are quite happy in their religion and don’t have any problem living under this kind of bizarre regime.
Horses for courses, or rather courses for horses.
