Religion today.......no, the world today stands divided. We as a species, a population stand divided in so many ways that regardless of which faith/religion people chose to follow or even if they follow a faith/religion at all we fail over and over again.
Those of religious beliefs talk the talk but fail to walk the walk. Regardless of which religion you choose to follow, mockery and blasphemy runs rampant in all. Doesnt peace, unity, harmony and righteousness sit high up in the list of what God wants us to be? Doesnt he want us all to prosper regardless of location, language and colour? To stand united as his children, as his creations?

So many divisions and boundaries that MAN has created, not God. We created our own satan and we continue to be ruled by satan and his system of things that have nation against nation and man against man. We see it daily on a local scale, we see it daily on a global scale. We are addicted to the system. We are addicted to money and we have become prisoners in our own home called earth because we cant do a simple thing that God wanted us to.

Divisions in Religions, "my religion is better than yours", "their religion has anti-western views", "my religion is truth theirs is lies", "their religion leads to terrorism" WTF! Seriously!

I have my own theory and its Lee's Theory of things

My theory is that God, the creator, the architect created one religion. He knew what we were to become and he knew the tests that will be set before us. Lessons that will make us learn to be what he set us out to be and he knew of the trials and obstacles that Satan would set before us all, because satan wanted the power and the glory, like a spoilt little brat that cant have his own way. Satan wanted what God wanted and chose to tempt us all, which, at the moment is working. Because we are weak! We are to ignorant and naive to see the error of our ways. Its a bit like bribing a kid to behave with sweets, but on a massive scale. Satan tries to force your faith where as God is allowing you to choose. A choice.
Given the fact that God is all knowing, and is the beginning and the end, the alpha and the omega suggests he knows past, present and future. We insult his intelligence daily and have done so daily for centuries.

I believe that God, created and is the Truth and understood the above. He gave us his word but to ensure the survival of the truth and us he divided it. Divided it into equal parts and handed a piece to each sub-religion and gave us different languages in order for each piece to not succumb to change or influence. A bit like the "keeping all of your eggs in one basket.
Dividing of religions to preserve the truth? If there was one religion from the start, man would have made sure it was ruined long ago.
The following is key.
I believe that when the nations, religions and the people of Earth/hEart set aside the differences and satan is destroyed we will move forward. Nations will stand side by side in understanding, unity and peace. The pieces of religion divided will come together to reveal the truth. The truth can only be found when this happens. Poverty, famine and illness will end.
Peace, Unity and Equality will stand strong and will not be destroyed. True riches will be shared and man will not see another man suffer.

The problem we face today is that i believe when religion was divided, one was not happy and wanted all pieces or if they couldnt have them they set out to destroy them. Hence what we see today.

Wars has raged for years, no soon as one ends another begins. The elites and their puppets continue to sacrifice men and women wether it be service personell or civilians while they themselves sacrifice nothing while they sleep safely in their beds. Men and women die daily in wars yet "they" just replace them by sending more to war. These bastards are leading lambs to the slaughter and if i see it, God does too. They justify their actions in the name of peace and equality. They spend obscene amounts of money to fuel wars for power, dominance and economy. They sit on their riches and luxuries while some unfortunate souls cant eat, drink or simply survive. Poverty exists in this day and age because of these that choose to play the roles of Kings and Gods. The Liars, cheats and deceivers, the manipulaters that have sold their souls to an evil that so isnt human.

Regardless of which religion you choose to follow or if you do or not, DO YOU ACCEPT THE WAY WE ARE AS ACCEPTABLE AND EXCUSABLE!?
The end of the world i believe is coming, but not literally. It will be the end of the world for those who are and are part of SATAN and the system.
Whats any worse than what we have already? Its not the religions, but the bad apples that are conspiring to change the word to their own benefit.

All will be revealed one way or another.
Why wage wars etc when all you need to do really is wait. Why fight with other religions or manipulate the masses views through propeganda when ultimately one way or another God will be judge.

Would it not be easier and more benefical for all to pave the way for his returning through Peace so we can all stand and say "We've been down, we've been out, we've made mistakes but we have learned our lessons and here we stand united, as one"

Also one more important part of it all is. How much of what we read in the holy scriptures is truth after all this time. How many times has the individual religions had their books re-written? Have they all been re-written.

After all man does publish the books, but which one kept the the word true?

I believe in God. I dont need a particular religion. I dont attend churches, mosques or synagogues. I believe in my own way. People didnt tell me to believe. I chose to believe. I try to do right yet i will make mistakes. I am not perfect i am a human being. If i was i would be a God.

I choose to believe that all religions are of one and follow and show interest in all, however i am quite aware of what man is capable of. So i wait.

What I will say to those who for what ever what reason dont believe in God. That is your choice and you wont be forced. I wasnt. But i am well aware that you know right from wrong. Live righteously and treat others as you would like to be treated yourselves. Help care and love each other and never see another down.

The time will come when all will be revealed.

I wouldnt say that, i would say religion has been manipulated for benefit, greed and dominance and that the truth has been overshadowed by the system. Either way i plan and aim to find the truth regardless. If my asking is portrayed as questioning God then so be it. I will be judged. What i believe is that my path will lead to him and i am willing to do all i can and leave no stone unturned until i do. I know that the way things are today are not the way(s) in which God wanted us to do.

So if any of you are interested in exposing the lies and finding God, true God and the truth regardless of your faiths lets be having you. I believe.

Ignorance of what is truly written is the WORST kind of ignorance.

When the message given is to love and live, live and love, who becomes the ignorant one? The one denying the love or the one sharing the love?

Keep in mind that religion is the coloring of faith created by man, worn like a garment. God said not to mix differing threads in the same garment. In other words, don't mix wool and linen when making clothes. Why? Felt is not durable. It leads to poor quality and is uncomfortable. Don't mix differing seeds in the same field. Why? Hybrids are avoided and seed is preserved. These were object lessons for the Hebrews so that they knew why they were to keep their own nation pure and undefiled. Don't mix the world's ways with faith. Why? The quality is diminished. Truth that is relevant in a lesser degree is always applicable in a greater degree.

The Bible calls true religion this:

James 1:27

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

It was interesting to see this in action in my own life this week. A month ago, my family decided we would volunteer some time this Christmas as a way to share our faith together. Our community church association publishes a list of holiday jobs that need to be accomplished before Christmas. Since I have access to two large trailers, we choose to work with the food distribution network with a neighboring church. Along with 20 college students, we moved several tons of food across town to the food pantry. In total, there were hundreds of people working to fill a gym with tables and stacks of food. When it was over, it looked like a supermarket. This was one item from a list of hundreds that are being filled each day in our community. Not only this, countless acts of service go unnoticed each day around our world.

When it comes to serving God, the garment of religion we wear is of no significance if we are working to serve the same God for the benefit of others. If our faith lacks service to others, it is a dead faith. Religion is made by man for a purpose. If the purpose is a mixing of the world for personal gain, then it is a dead faith. Faith is made by God and not by man. Producing faith in the individual is God's work in and through us to serve the needs of others. Regardless of the color garment we wear to show our belief, God will use us if our heart is fashioned in his likeness. In the end, the best robes to wear are those we display to honor God in a dying world.

"Whats any worse than what we have already? Its not the religions, but the bad apples that are conspiring to change the word to their own benefit."

I've noticed that your belief that God somehow hid His word amongst many religions really shows in your post. You take new age concepts and blend them with Christian concepts, so I don't really know where to begin in a proper response.

I guess the first question that I have is why would you think that He would NEED to hide it to keep it safe? Would He not be capable of keeping it preserved? I'd rather start my journey with Him knowing that what He needs to teach me is in one source.... Hundreds of Christian denominations exist already because man would rather listen to man than seek God through scripture. As it is, New Age religions already offer what you suggest - a pik n' mix of religions rolled up into sweetened ideologies.

You believe in Satan. So why don't you believe God, that His Word is complete for you?

My theory is that the Creator did not create any Religion, Man created Religion. Religion breeds fear in the hearts of human beings. You are right in that Man created Satan, and probably a lot of other nonsense labeled as religious dogma too.



Given the fact that God is all knowing, and is the beginning and the end, the alpha and the omega suggests he knows past, present and future. We insult his intelligence daily and have done so daily for centuries.


If there were so, we would not have been created in the first place. According to most Christians, all of us secular people, Wiccans, Atheists, Buddhists, Pagans, and who know the rest are all going to Hell because we are not a Christian. So, why would god create a people just to punish them in a fiery afterlife?



The problem we face today is that i believe when religion was divided, one was not happy and wanted all pieces or if they couldnt have them they set out to destroy them. Hence what we see today.


It wasn't religion that was divided, it was humankind, and religion was one of the things that divided us. The others were gender, race, and politics.

I can see your point completely. Fair comment hands down. But obviously man was created by God and man upon learning to talk spread the rest?
