Welcome, i find this a very interessting aproach on the context.
I too am curious about what was taught before churches indoctrinated people into specific belief structures
I think before that there were a load of religions being practiced, each one with their own gods and deities and belief systems some similair to each
other and some completely different.
If u take the greeks or the romans before the catholic church for example.
So in my view the roman catholic church was formed around 0 bc/ac or after 0 ac and went on from there( i dunno that for a fact).
But i know that certain views like a round earth or the earth rotating around the sun in opposition to the churches view that the earth is the center
and everything else is rotating around it got for example galileo galilei into prison.
And to be frank, I don't see anything wrong with learning whatever information is out there- no matter what it is. Why can't I know? What are
they(religious structures) hiding that is so important?
So, I guess I am committing that act (exceeding sinfulness through sin) but I 'don't get what's wrong with it'...that is key point in the act
mentioned above - when you don't feel/think you are sinning.
I think the answer is pretty simple:
The church controlled mostly everything back then and had enormous power over leaders and the people.
Imagine you are a new religion with a certain belief system and certain opinions etc
If u would allow people to know/study things that would when spread let people see what you are promoting is just false / lies then you would loose
The sad thing is that through this indoctrination by the church which was formed by people with a book that was written by people to controll the
other people, turns a human being into a blind believing sheep not daring to question the authority held by "The holy father" ( the pope) who is
supposedly the one in command right under god himself.
I mean if u think about it, the illuminati did exactly the same as people do today when they declined to follow the churches teachings and to find
their own answers through science and studies.
If people like them wouldnt have existed with the original idea of finding truth (enlightenment) in study and science then i think we wouldnt be close
to being advanced as we are today.
So to get to your key point, there is nothing wrong with it.
The only thing wrong is in the eyes of the church what you are doing is not following their lies to controll you.
In other words you are doing the right thing and the church is the wrong doer
Just beause the church says what you are doing is a sin and wrong, it doesnt mean that this is true.
I mean only because its the church not everything they say is right, take for example the churches advice promoted not to use condoms while we have
hiv and other diseases... or the stance against abortion when we have 15 year olds not able to make a living for themselves not to mention to cover
for the baby that would be born... do you see my point?
I hope so hehe
