Something I've noticed, expected and find amusing as a trend in this thread is; "What can the gods DO for ME?"
Aren't we supposed to give ourselves over entirely to the faith and trust in our gods?
Isn't it about what you can do for your god as opposed to what your god can do for you?
You're suppose to worship, sacrifice, and remain faithful to your god.
Instead, as evidenced in many posts, including my own in the OP we see ME, ME, ME.
What can God(s) X do for ME?
This brings up the debate regarding modern real-world religious faith. If ME, ME, ME, is the true state of the human condition, then, what are the
faiths of modern day, real world currently practiced religions doing for each and every individual 'ME'?
Certainly there's the heritage aspect, as well as the regional aspect to be taken into account where many will default to one of the Abrahamic
religions, Eastern practices, or whatever is most prevalent in their geographic socioeconomic climate, as well as what their parents bring them up to
Still, as people of supposed FREE WILL, and the choices available, even now in the real world, how is it we still have so few actually making choices
based on 'ME'?
