Ah Religion! You've got your feet planted firmly in a belief system. You're in, what peace, what joy, you're saved, you're secure, you are now accepted by the religious crowd, you can now blend in, no more quenched eye gazes from the religious crowd. What a relief to belong to a belief that is accepted by practically every member of the community. Now you can share in the praises and gospel singing and shout a Hallelujah once in a while, you can even speak in tongues and pretend that you are speaking directly to God, and you can exert your prayers on to people, especially the one's that do not share in your belief. Now you can stand away and judge others that do not believe as you do. You're a grand champion for your God and childhood beliefs. You now can put on your "Full Armor of God", and nothing will stop you, you're invincible, if God be for you, who will be against you? Now you can get up in front of people and pretend like you're in the Holy Spirit of God, and act like an Insane Half-crazed Banshee and no one will judge you for acting crazy and totally insane, because they believe that you are not acting, nor pretending. This is the foolishness that religions offer, complete insanity. No one should want to act like this, surely there cannot be a God that wants such foolishness displayed as this.
Jesus was the fall-guy for the biggest hoax to have ever been spread over the history of human kind. The story's original intent was not to deceive the entire world, but just to deceive the local towns people of that era, into not stoning Mary and Joseph to death, for having a baby out of wedlock.
How Jesus Became Savior Of The World
Mary was 13 when her father gave his blessings to Joseph for her hand in marriage, but Mary became pregnant before the wedding, Mary had been sexually molested and raped by her trusted godhead of her church, her priest had his eyes on Mary for quite some time, she's was very attractive and the envy of all of the towns males, with lust in their hearts continually. Now the young horney priest devised a way to trick the young unsuspecting Mary into giving up her virginity, he told her that he could Initiate Her Into The Kingdom Of Heaven, only if she did as he requested, naturally she would not want to question a man of the cloth, she willingly obeyed his every wish and command.
Now approximately 4 weeks later Mary feels faint and nauseated, and her monthly period had stopped, so she asked a Nun what could possibly be wrong with her, she says, My Dear One You're With Child, frantically Mary says, How Can This Be? I Have Been With No Man! And the priest (father of the child) walks in and overhears the conversation. and says, What Great Joy, You've Received Your Miracle! You will now surely enter the Kingdom of Heaven, you've received a blessing, a Holy child from God, but Mary knows now that it was not a miracle from God, but she now realizes that she had been raped by a man claiming to be of God, nothing has changed to this day.
Mary says how can I tell Joseph? He'll put me away (kill her), the priest says you must tell everyone that you were inseminated by an Angel and that the Holy prophesy of our coming messiah has finally come true, otherwise if you tell the truth, we will all be stoned to death, including the Priest, along with Mary and Joseph, for having a baby out of wedlock, was an unpardonable sin, 2000 years ago.
Now Jesus having been told since the day he was born, that he was the messiah child of God, had no choice but to believe it himself, just like people tell their children today that the Bible is all true, and when they are adults it's hard to shake the parental brainwashing. Most people refuse to believe it is a lie, because their parents swore it was all true.
Back in those times before Jesus, it was custom to lend burnt offerings, sacrifice lambs, blood lettings, for atonement for sins, so the towns people decided to make the ultimate sacrifice to God, a real live human being! This way they would no longer have to kill lambs, or calves on a daily basis, and if Jesus is really from God, then he can save himself.
Why is it that so many people refuse to see that this is exactly what happened?
Why do so many people want to believe in a human sacrifice, for forgiveness of sins?
God supposedly created the entire universe in just 6 days, but it took him 4000 years to come up with the Jesus salvation plan fraud, what took God so long?.
We're a nation of scared religious buffoons, we've been scared for over 2000 years from some words that were written down on papyrus by a bunch of Opium headed winos, spewing their religious cliche's as an excuse and to save us for everything we do, and for every breath we take. We're a bunch mimicking walking-talking-religious self-righteous Robots. Aren't we all so perdy and cute?
And finally Sunday rolls around and it's show time! We get to put on our glorious self-righteous show!!! Pass the offering plate quick, First Things Are First! MONEY!! Get Those Green Stamps Out!! The One True Faith!! Money!! Lets get this over with! Now lets all get lost in the songs and our self-petulation. Lets all examine the handy crafted premeditated program thoughtfully laid out by the program director, which would make most any God's pride beam with glorious envy, so they all would like for you to think!
Now the preacher has a turn, and he's boasting about how much God must be so proud of him for his weekly studies in order to bring you this wonderful message of hope, faith, grace and salvation. None of us apparently have a brain of our own, we've allowed people with a religious claim and we presume that they know more than we do, we sit back and allow the religious experts and the politicians and all the wolves in sheep's clothing, entice us and sway our thoughts with their sweet words and their fake promises in the here-after, like they know, and you're not allowed to use your common sense or think anything, except what they tell you.
We want to be led around like little puppies, and spoon fed sweet little lies, we want to be nursed, we never get the courage to grow up mentally and leave momma and the playpen, you can call me names, but you better not call my momma names. How did we as intelligent human beings, let all this happen?
We are a product of our up-bringing. We run cold away with fear from people that do not say the sweet endearment phrases that our mothers have spoiled us with. Aren't you a sweet thing? Oh how cute you look! Jesus loves you! We judge people based on their words and what their facial expressions are and by what kind sweet words that they have waiting for us, we befriend people that tell us how wonderful we are, and providing they do not judge us. People are even more than willing to pay a preacher to tell them just what they want to hear, isn't that so beyond foolish? This is the reason the church and religions are so popular, as long as you perform as prescribed, the church members and preacher will love you and brag on you, as long as you goose-step to their expectations, you're in, and most people are so afraid to step out of line, because of the fear and to disbelieve what their momma or relative told them that it was true, this would surely be perceived as a rebellious act against mother or father or church teachings, this is one reason the bible writers invented the threat of hell, to keep fear instilled into people so that they can control masses of people with fear, and the honor your mother and father thing, be sure to believe anything that they tell you, at all costs.
I'm lying in my crib 52 years ago, looking up at the ceiling and momma walks over with a Kind Smile and says God and Jesus loves you, and I think wow, God Loves me and Jesus Loves me, and someone suddenly walks into the room with a smirk on their face, and I say to myself I hate them people, they have a smirk on their face, they are a threat to me and my safety, they must not Love God or Jesus, they must be Atheists, they hate God and Jesus, so I associate my moms smiling face with God and Jesus loves me, and I have heard the same repeated shit all through my life and now most people associate Love and smiling faces with God and Jesus. Now I want to associate myself with people that have a smile and say God and Jesus loves me, because it's safe, what safety, it provides comfort, it takes me back to my playpen days of thinking, and now the church members are all looking for the God and Jesus loves me cliche, to comfort them and for safety, because momma said it was true. Now as long as people tell me how wonderful I am and God and Jesus loves me, I'm ok, I'm a Christian, but when people do not tell me how wonderful I am, I see them as Atheists and they hate God and Jesus. Now I can judge and condemn others long as I live, because momma certainly would not lead me wrong. Can anyone see what brainwashing at such an early age can do to people? Isn't this exactly what all religions represent? We want and seek validation from anyone, or any God or demi-god, we're looking for self worth, either from our parents or somewhere, just anywhere. Why do we have to look outside of ourselves for verification? Because momma told us that something outside of ourselves, Loves Us.
Did I say lost? How can anyone be lost in religion? Could it be that people feel safe in the concept of religion. Since American society is mostly based on the concept of religion, most people will feel safe and accepted spouting religious cliche's. Christians have come to believe if they go around mimicking Christ, then people in society will perceive them as being Holy and Sanctimonious, while God above is watching, and by pretending to mimic Jesus, they will meet God's Holy approval from Heaven. We see people Lost in religion, they have substituted all their born common sense for a concept that their parents told them it was true. And to stand up against their parents and tell them it's all a lie, would be like slapping them in the face. In all reality that is exactly just what they need, a damned good slap in the face.
What would society be like, if no one had ever heard of the Bible or Quran?
Can anyone imagine?
Would we still be living with the Indians in peace and harmony and living in fear of progress?
What would people of today do without the fear of an imaginary Hell and a judgemental God?
Would people go around others and proclaim self-righteous indignation, like they do these days?
Would all people seem to be equal in the eyes of each other?
Would we have prejudice because of skin color or different religious beliefs?
Would we kill others, because they do not share the same beliefs?
Would we have all the modern conveniences that we have today, because we believe that an imaginary God wants us to prosper?
Why is it that most people think that a belief in a God validates them as having a meaningful purpose in life?
Why is it that some people insist in believing that a God has chosen some people above others to represent this imaginary God, without a shred of verifiable proof or evidence?
Why is it that most religious people insist that their brand of religion and beliefs, are the only true validated accepted beliefs?
What makes most religious people feel Holier than others and this somehow gives them license to judge and condemn others?
