    First off religion is a man made thing. Each of us has to decide what we will or will not do with Jesus. Jesus ministered against religion more then any other person who has ever lived. Each of us chooses where We will send our soul for eternity. We also need to understand that Satan as a fallen angel hates us as much as it hates God. Satan will do anything to keep us from Jesus. We see all the evil in the world but we as human beings invited that evil into the world. Jesus told us clearly no one is without sin. We all fall short of the Glory of God. Jesus also tells us plainly we either trust and believe in Him or we don't. We choose where we will spend eternity. No ever said life would be easy if we trust in Jesus. By looking at the servants of Jesus we see that we as servants are under constant attack from Satan, it's servants and even other people. If we have doubts about the times we live in we can pray, read the Bible and it becomes clear we are closer to the end then to the beginning. No one is promised their next breath so we need to be ready for the moment our souls are required of us. If we are saved we should trust in Jesus no matter what comes against us. If we do not believe in Jesus we also choose our fate. No one is so bad that Jesus can not forgive them and save them if we ask. God bless you all in your choice for eternity.

    Organized religion is about two things and that is power and controlling people. The basic premise is to invent something that cant be seen, felt, or heard and then make up rules how you should obey it. When something bad happens then its...…..oh well, free will and all, etc.
    There is NO God that would sit idly by and watch people get massacred in the name of holy wars, the holocaust, cancer in children, pedophiles in the clergy, etc. If there is a God that allows these things to continue then what type of God is there?

    Once in awhile someone will be medically "cured" by a miracle. Total hogwash. You want to show me a miracle? Show me someone who grew back a finger, hand, arm, foot, etc.

    I have observed there are two types of people attracted to religion. The first are children who are forced to believe what their parents believe. The second are aging people who desperately want to cling to the notion there is everlasting life in the kingdom of heaven. Far more people would come out of shadows and admit they did not believe if their circle of friends would not blackball them. I have heard firsthand from friends that go to church and tell people they believe in God so their own business is not blackballed. And others who say they really don't believe, but just in case they are wrong they act like they do so they get everlasting life.
