It is all very simple, Religion has made it complicated and impossible to decipher. Within us is, almost to a point of genetic engrainment, the
concepts of right and wrong. All religions reflect this and must reflect this in order to survive. The human nature will eventually rebel against
alterior precepts given the choice to do so.
Organized religion, not the adoration and worship of God as the source of love, compassion and creation, is the opiate and final controller of the
Governments and Kings would find it very difficult to produce a large number of suicide bombers. You need divine aquiessence for that type of thing.
Are you following me?
No war has ever been successfully prosecuted without the army being fully convinced that they are on the side of God. How sad this statement is.
The leaders of the country have to show that they are on the right side and they need organized religion to do that.
Corporations need organized religion to promote the work ethic and, now days, to justify astronomical profits. The doctrine of prosperity that has
swept christian fundementalism.
Do not be fooled. God is real. God is not a respector of persons. The formula for organized religion is not divinely inspired. It would more closely
be politically and economically inspired.
Jesus did not say take dominion of the earth and make the most in my name. He did not say wage war on those that do not believe as you do.
Muhammed did not say those things either
Krishna say nothing of the kind.
Religions, all religions begin by stating that which is most obvious. the prophets or teachers actually say very little if you would examine, for
yourselves, the scripts.
It is after those "prophets" die that the turmoil begins.
It isn't really complicated. When the prophet dies a vaccum is created. There is a rush, taking nearly a century to fill that vaccum with various
interpretations of what the "master" said. These interpretations develop into sects. After much fighting between sects of interpretation, a general
consenses is reached. A doctrine that a majority can find appealing is codified and proselytation begins.
that is why the religions have so much in common. The common thread was expedient. Everything had to ring true with what people inately felt already.
Radical ideas are not welcomed except by the sword. Note the spanish incursion into South America, circa 1400-1600
