The idea of an evil being which tries to manipulate us is only as old as humans. Animals never had to worry about any sort of devil because
'beliefs' simply are not a part of their being. We are also animals, but animals with the ability to reason and think. Lesser evolved animals are
pure in that their mind isn't polluted with opinions and dogma. They don't need someone to guide them in their lives. They just live. That is the
natural way. We are living very unnaturally.
All religions, ALL religions, are simply irrelevant to the existence. Believing in anything (God, Jesus, the Bible, etc.) is completely beside the
point because no matter what you believe, you will never be any closer to what is actually truth.
For example, I have been told by many people and many sources that the Earth is round. I take this to be true, and based on the evidence I have seen,
it makes sense. But all that any 'evidence' really is is just my brain processing objective information using my various sensory organs to create a
subjective experience, followed by an opinion. Even if I were to fly into outer space and look at the Earth, I could never be truly certain that it is
round. I'm not actually looking at the Earth, but the image of the Earth being processed by the billions of neurons in my brain and projected onto my
consciousness. Basically, it's just a mirage. The only thing I can be ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY sure about, is my own consciousness. Think about it.
The same goes for religion. You may believe that your 'god' is THE 'god', and your 'savior' is THE 'savior', but you can never
ABSOLUTELY know for sure. It is, quite literally, impossible. All you can have is faith. Faith is extremely limited.
The negative experiences you have had are simply that -- negative experiences. They have nothing to do with any external force (there are no such
things), but you used the biases contained in your limited mind to associate the experience with something you label as 'Satan'. This is simply
immature. You cannot handle the responsibility of your own negative experiences, so you blame all of it on a made up entity external to yourself. All
fear is self created. ALL of it. Just like every other experience you have.
A big issue with Christianity is that Christians spend their entire life trying to 'be good' so they can 'go to heaven', and every time they do
something that the bible tells them is 'bad' they get scared that they'll 'go to hell'. All they can think about is the so-called 'afterlife'
and what will be in store for them. They waste the beautiful experience called life trying to perfect their morals, or worry about where they're
going when they die, or worshiping 'god'. And by the time they DO die, all of that will be irrelevant and they will know this. You gave yourself
life to experience beauty and love, not to blindly follow another man.
Speaking of Jesus, I'd like to talk a little about him. Jesus was, in fact, an enlightened being. He lived to spread the message of infinite love and
oneness to all who would listen. He realized that all is one, which allowed him to perform so-called 'miracles' with no effort at all. Did he not
say, "The Father and I are not two, but one. And ye are all my brethren."? Jesus understood that we were all one, and lived in that experience. That
is why he is called Jesus the Christ. He allowed himself to be crucified not to cleanse humanity of its sins, but because he knew he could simply move
back into his body if and when he pleased. He saw no reason to resist the crucification and deny his captors the 'justice' they thought they were
delivering., because he felt no need to prove himself to anyone. And, three days later, when nobody was around, he swiftly took back his body and
continued his life. He was not religious, he was beyond religion. He did not preach of a jealous, angry vengeful god, but of a joyful and blissful
reunion with existence itself.
When you live by the bible, you are not channeling Jesus. You are doing exactly that which he, and every other enlightened master which walked the
earth before and after him, warned us against. You live your life based on the writings of a book which has been mistranslated, misinterpreted, and
most of all, manipulated by greed and fear over thousands of years.
'Hell' and 'Satan' were not originally part of the the bible. The bible in its youngest form spoke only of unity and love, and about that which
would bring human beings the most joyful and whole life experience. Over the years, however, the greedy and power-hungry saw an opportunity. They
created a church and formed the Christian religion. But this religion was not based off the teachings of Christ. It was based off counterfeit
varieties of his teachings, laced with fear and hatred. This was the invention of sin.
They told people that if they did not attend the holy Church of Christ, they would face eternal damnation. This, as you may guess, did the trick.
People started flocking to these churches, trying to save their soul from the 'depths of Hell'. This is just the tip of the ice burg, but I am sure
you get the point.
