There seems to lie an oxymoron within Christianity. Its called the "preacher." There are many names for this position. Many roles this position
is obligated to fulfill as well. But the main goal and the main role is to be a teacher. And to be clear a teacher is supposed to educate and inform
those who listen. Many of these "teachers" are admittedly good people. But in listening to these sermons that are given by these supposedly
intelligent, educated people are nothing more than twisted messages meant to confuse and dumb down the listener. It would seem that logic and common
sense must be thrown out the window just to stay in the same room. If you do not believe me, then please turn your t.v. to TBN. This is one of the
most sickening t.v. stations on the air today. The most manipulativa and fake poeple I have ever seen. It is the epitme of what I am talking about.
These preachers and their messages are among the biggest co-conspirators we as a human race have ever witnessed and that is: keeping Christians
Was this intentional or a by-product of thousands of years of mis-interpretation? I think part of this is very, very intentional. One very good
reason is for the old world sin: greed. If the people who are attending church and listening to the watered down generalized message that is spewed
at many of these places of worship dont actually understand what it is they are listening to or if it is not explained to them correctly, they will
think they know what the message means and apply it to their life and feel "fullfilled" like God has touched them in some way. And therefore, these
same people will return to once again fill the tithing basket with their hard earned green. And unsurprisingly the people that remain "dumb"
always seem to be the poorest. Their certainly are exceptions, but generally the poor are the uneducated and dumb. They are the easiest to
manipulate. They listen to what they are told with no explanation and know nothing of questioning to help enlighten themselves with the messages they
are given. For example I know of many Christians who believe Jesus Christ will literally descend from the clouds on a white horse when he
"returns"; because that is what they heard in Church. And, because they are told they can "trust" this person speaking to them the "word of
God," this is what they must believe will actually take place. There is also the belief that heaven literally resides in the sky and is a
physical place you go to when you die. This is rampant throughout evangelical Christianity, and is an excellent example of a teaching that helps to
rot your brain. In many cases there is no attempt to explain these metaphors and the allegorical meanings. They simply state what is in their bible
and let the dumb piece a picture into their mind of what they have just been told.
In my opinion this is quite sickening for people of the human race in the year 2009 to be subjected to. To believe without question whether it makes
sense or not. If this is not conspiracy on grand scale, please tell me what is!
Lets not forget, this methodology has been used for thousands of years in all different religions. And we should keep in mind there are different
levels of this sort of manipulation. Ranging from complete and utter B.S. religions such as Scientology to different Christian Cults to spiritual
(wannabe buddhist) camps to your local church on the corner that likes to put their own twist on things, especially if it grows the congregation and
keeps the bucks rollin in. Its the same human traits that drives and motivates each church that is disengenuous, even if only at times. So here we
have 2 very powerful motivations for Churches to spew nonsense without any explanations.
1. GREED (keep the bucks rollin in)
2. RESPECT (or sway of opinion, this is used in political ideological teaching as well)...which leads to the next level of manipulation which is...
3. POWER (or keeping to entrenched in their way of thought. or keeping you inline with thier way of thinking and belief set)
Is there a main player in all of this? Why yes there is, the originals, the early leaders of the Catholic Church or should I say, **ahem** Catholic
Empire. Their ridiculous corruption and neglegent keep of trust that people have bestowed in them for the first 1800 years or so. And here we are
today not straying too far from the original message. People stay dumb. People keep trusting and as long as we keep them dumbed down they will keep
coming back like the trained monkeys they are. Conspiracy? I think so.
