Religion isn't a tool used to control the masses. What are they trying to control? If you think it's just for money or power you must be thinking
of back when Catholicism was ruling the nation converting through power and death. That's not the religion of today. No one is going to kill you if
you don't convert to their religion. Anyone who seeks to do harm in the name of their religion isn't following their religion; albeit Muslims cause
it says to kill all those who oppose their God (Allah). That's not Christianity and it shouldn't be confused with the other two monotheistic
I know some of you don't want to believe in God, or a God, and that's perfectly fine you have that same right as we have to believe in God. I'm
pretty sure I'm not doing hard working labor to support my God. It's a choice, a decision, one makes just as it's a decision to not believe. Stop
confusing the religion of old with the new, it shows your ignorance and how shallow you are.
How can we as humans expect to know a fully infinite God when we don't even understand each other? We lie, cheat, steal, commit numerous sins in the
act against the faith we should be instilling in one another. He (God) has shown enough of himself through his creations, through His word, and
through his son Jesus Christ. As it is impossible to share both light with darkness together, it also is impossible for God to share fellowship with
a sinful mankind that we see today.
God has shown himself in the past with the exile thru Egypt in the form of a cloud by day and fire pillar at night to lead the Israelites. He also
parted the Red Sea to escape the Egyptian army and gave them manna when they were starving. He also gave them water when they were thirsty thru Moses
striking a rock once with his rod. Yet, in spite of these repeated demonstrations of His love, guidance, and power, they still refused to trust Him
when He wanted them to enter into the Promised Land. To this day people will choose not to believe through ignorance and that's fine, it's their
decision and I won't look at you any differently. Just look at it this way: I'd rather live my life as there was a God, and find out there wasn't
(when I die). Then live my life as there was no God, and find out there was.
Food for thought.
