You are being brainwashed to believe that there is a gd in the sky watching you at al times. the bible never happened. show me one strand of proof and i will recant and follow your GD.

Do you realize that there are more religions than just Christianity?

Also, I would say that religion is more of a mental crutch than a control mechanism, but to each his own.

Try buddhism, it is more nontheistic.
Jesus was not some special son of a god, he was a man like us just enlightend. Same for buddha and most of the other religous figures. You do not need to worship a god, just be nice to those around you and do good things. How can that be bad. If you really want, work on yourself and become a great person. Then no one can deny your feelings of nontheism and the ability to do great things without certain belifiefs.

But to your original thought, yes most organized religon is nothing but a controll mechanism. It has been used for millenia to controll the masses through lack of education and wealth. The bible is fiction, as are most religous texts. That dosen't mean you can't sift through it and find some truths to life about being kind to your fellow man. If organied religon does not feel right to you, then it isnt right for you. And thats just fine. Be a good person and your a step ahead of the rest.

what does your Rabbi say about all this? You being an Orthodox Jew, I would think you already know who God is. You obviously have some reverence for his as you won't type God, just gd. I wonder if you will make a second post in this thread? Probably not, as your record to date has been that of a troll.
