Well, ile give Christianity this.

I always liked the "Lift up the stone, and you will find me there." turn of phrase from Thomas.

And there's also “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be, and that which is done is that which shall be done, and there is no new thing under the sun.” in Ecclesiastes.

There is wisdom there, and in a few other passages and statements, it's just the crap and underlying control constructs that come with it that's problematic.

Then again "some people can read War and Peace and come away thinking it's a simple adventure story, others can read the ingredients on a chewing gum wrapper and unlock the secrets of the universe.” also springs to mind, and that was just Gene Hackman's Lex Luthor.

Movies are just for entertainment and brainwashing.

TextI have seen what organized religions does first hand. They forsake the poor, seek after riches of this world, teach mixed up gospels put together to keep the wealth of others coming in so they can live luxuriously. God's word has been skewered ever since the first skewering done by that old serpent the devil, known as Satan in Genesis 3:1-5

Absolutely correct and could not say it better myself Chester.

Even The Passion of the Christ?

I would not exactly call that entertaining. LoL

You need to accept the fact that the Bible also all about brainwashing, it's chock full of control constructs, designed to facilitate the priest casts control over the people.

Not that i don't agree to that Hollywood, news, advertising and movies are also all about controlling our minds, but "They" learned from the best if you know what i mean.

God did not preserve to us his words to brainwash us. Men do however use God's word's to control or even brainwash people but not God.

The priest cast was limited to ISRAEL and then to just the sons of Aaron. The whole Roman Catholic Priesthood is a false religious construction, now there is a group that wants control not just you but the world. They stole the priesthood from Israel, the steal your salvation and put it in them, their group and in Mary.

They Media is pro-Roman Catholic and they learned from the best the RCC but they did not learn that from God or his word.

I have peace because Jesus is the prince of peace. But peace will not come to this world until the prince of peace returns.

Then why does the Bible say the following at Matthew 23:1-10:

Then Jesus spoke to the crowds and to his disciples, saying: 2 “The scribes and the Pharisees have seated themselves in the seat of Moses. 3 Therefore, all the things they tell you, do and observe, but do not do according to their deeds, for they say but they do not practice what they say. 4 They bind up heavy loads and put them on the shoulders of men, but they themselves are not willing to budge them with their finger. 5 All the works they do, they do to be seen by men, for they broaden the scripture-containing cases that they wear as safeguards* [Or “broaden their phylacteries.”] and lengthen the fringes of their garments. 6 They like the most prominent place at evening meals and the front* [Or “best.”] seats in the synagogues 7 and the greetings in the marketplaces and to be called Rabbi* [Or “Teacher.”] by men. 8 But you, do not you be called Rabbi, for one is your Teacher, and all of you are brothers. 9 Moreover, do not call anyone your father on earth, for one is your Father, the heavenly One. 10 Neither be called leaders, for your Leader is one, the Christ.

Should There Be a Clergy-Laity Distinction? Awake!—2009

Seems a bit counterproductive for the Bible to teach that there shouldn't be a clergy-laity distinction in Christianity if people designed the Bible "to facilitate the priest casts control over the people" (the text above is not the only text that teaches that and warns for these types that like to be addressed by religious titles to distinguish and elevate them from and above the laity; more are discussed in the article above).

Counterproductive is exactly how i would sum up said book.

Says one thing tells you to do the other.

People did indeed design the Bible from a collection of other religious texts.

Fact of the matter, its a collection of tails from previous religions.

Take your flood material for one, there are many others.

It's not about son worship, it's about Sun worship I'm afraid.
