The problem with christianity (and ALL other organized religions), is that it is a sad attempt by man to control everything. Faith is something we all
should have, life would be very dismal if we knew once we died, that was it. But to package it and define it as this or that, and to follow primitive
writings by men who claimed to have the answers, just follow them and they will take you where you need to be is almost pathetic. Our relationships
with whatever higher power exists should be solely internal, it should be reflected in the way we treat ALL other life forms, with respect. And it
should be something we celebrate with our families, not in some church listening to the ramblings of some man who probably lives a more "sinful"
life than any of those who follow him. Why must we have an explaination and name for everything? We are not meant to comprehend the higher powers, if
we were we would have full use of our brains, not the 10% we use to struggle with and make up stories about them. Those who claim to be men of god are
frauds, all people should drop organized religion, respect each other, and live life the way they choose, as long as they do not harm others in the
process. Imagine a world like that, god, in whatever form it exists, would be much happier that way I'm sure. The need to be worshipped is a human
desire, I doubt any all powerful force would have an ego.
