Tho the bible is, in my opinion, helping people live a better life. Okej not all of it but some things are good. Like love thy neighbor, don't kill,
love everyone for anything. Believing in something allmighty have helped many people through bad times, even my girlfriend believes in god
(christian/chatolic family) just for the comfort but not changing her life due to her belief.
That's where the problems come in, the church has taken these things and turned them into something else so that they can earn money, get power
etc. 5th commandment "thou shall not kill" and somewhere god says "don't kill and never kill in my name (gods name)", not really like that but
something like that. But then we have all those crusades, kill the unbelievers in the name of god, Why didn't Jesus kill jews, muslims? Because
christianity, for example, is based on peace! But then they threaten with hell, believe in us or you go there, plus we will help you get there because
we will kill you for not changing your faith. Plus the bible is like a mixed tape, they have so many different books and parts and things that
doesn't even fit togheter. God, who is loving, sometimes tortures people and get vengeful etc. When his son came to earth to take away our sins and
never seemed to get even pissed-off. Only when people didn't show respect and love to him, but then he just lectured them with "why should I help
you when you don't even show me the respect you want from me?".
So IMO, religion is good for the little man, but has become so corrupted for it's powers over the little man it has gotten it has turned into one
of the worst enemies on this planet!
Btw, Every religion has the same base, believe in this to get there (talking about Christianity, Islam, Judism) and some other things that help make
the people into better persons with maybe what to eat because it's maybe not that healthy, thats good! But they have turned on eachother because of
that, and that's sad...
