that's exactly what i mean! who's to say that your religion is right and all others are wrong? i'm beginning to think that all religon is wrong. people say that heaven is a state of mind, and not a place you go. if you have heaven in your heart, you're already in heaven. that state of bliss is an empirical experience that transcend raace creed color and...religion. all this bloodshed or in iraq over islamic and christialn faiths would all be erased if we just abandon religion altogether! al it does is keep people sitting idly by (idle worship) when the hand to save us is at the end of our arms!
we try to believe in god because we want to forfeit our divine right to live spritually without useless laws that have no salvaging or redeeeming qualitites. you think you worship god yetyou merely personlity worship a character who doesn't exist. you all are turning me into an athiest. im not saying that god doesn't exist, yet the way we worshipis wrong. we try to make god a human like us so we make him a human with human attributs and human body parts. god can be anyone he wants to be. why do you paoint a picture of him, violating the 10 commandments about creating idols. he's the unseen god,yet christianity tries to make him human to both get closer to god ( who is the same yesterday, today,and tomorrow) and to make god a ike you. now he has human lusts and appetites like us. he loses his perfect wiill and way because controllers of society use religion to control the masses. it's great for social control, yet it tells me nothing about the divine in me. it's all personality worship!
i think becoming agnostic is the righteous way to be.
