People idol worship the words of their religion. Ideas have no meaning. The words are more important than piety.
Popular religion has been subverted to promote authority worship. True religion encourages people to see what we have in common. True religion lifts
all boats and builds a commonwealth for everyone to share. Everyone is respected equally.
Subverted religions have a "chosen people". There's an "us" versus "them" mentality. The "them" are not really people. How can you have any war if
everyone is a member of the same tribe?
It's really much worse than most people imagine. For example, why would an omnipotent God require our worship? An omnipotent God needs nothing from
us. An all-loving all-powerful omnipotent creator God would love us unconditionally.
An omnipotent God needs nothing from us. And omnipotent God doesn't care how we practice our religion. But the people in power do not like an
egalitarian God. The people in power want aristocracy. The people in power want monarchy.
The idea of God as a Lord to be worship has more to do legitimatizing the divine rights of kings. That's why kings are referred to as "your grace".
And we have "the grace of God." This conditions people, that is the slaves, to accept having a Lord king as God himself. Romans 13 in the Bible is
the prime example of propaganda serving monarchy.
Does anyone ever question of all the possibilities of the Universe the type of government God dictates in His Bible is exactly the one King James
would prefer? In his book, "The True Law of Free Monarchies" King James shows his true colors. It's not about piety. It's about worshiping
authority for monarchy's sake. It's all about bending the knee and being submissive to the king.
Some people think being submissive is man's natural state. You can't have a Lord without Slaves. I don't accept the divine right of any king. And
as an American citizen I will never bend a knee to any king, period. I choose not to be submissive to authority.
According to God's doctrine I will burn in Hell because I refuse to bend the knee. To people who think you must bend a knee I say our omnipotent God
loves all of us unconditionally. Our omnipotent God loves us unconditionally regardless of how we practice our religion. Maybe I will burn in Hell.
But my faith in God's unconditional love is stronger than any fears people try to sell me that would force me to be submissive.
If you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him.
