Religion is Control
John and Troy were a couple good friends. They had been friends their entire lives.
One day they were walking down a neighborhood street. Troy was carrying his radio in his hand. Both walked to the end of their street, looked both ways for traffic, and crossed.
After crossing, they entered a wooded area. Troy tripped over a rock and dropped his radio on the ground and it broke. His friend John said, "God you're stupid. Don't you watch where you're stepping?" Troy looked up at him in disgust as he was brushing himself off because he knew his radio was destroyed.
Later on after walking about a mile, Troy turned to John and asked, "Why did you call me 'God' back there?" John said, "Huh?" Troy then said, "After I tripped over that rock, you called me 'God'." John said, "Oh,. I donít know. It's just one of those things people say I guess."
The above story of John and Troy reveals that we are all part of a collective consciousness. The bible says the same thing; I Corinthians 8.6; "But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him."
Why do people feel the need to worship something that they are a part of? It doesn't make sense.
We do not have a need to worship something we are a part of; that is the deception, part of the grand illusion and to even suggest such a thing is heresy. The Vatican used to kill people for saying less.
I find it interesting that the only life form on earth that worships deities is also the most destructive to the planet.
You would think if a people are close to God they would not engage in such destructive behavior and live in harmony with Nature. Nature is God and God is Nature, right?
Could it be that animals know more about being one with God then humans do? I believe the evidence proves it.
Household pets for example, do not judge people by the way they behave, look or walk. Unlike humans, pets offer unconditional love because their minds have not been confused by distraction and corrupted information.
From that it can be safely concluded that Religion is nothing more then a sub-part of a control system designed to keep us from the truth.
We have been convinced we needed deities as a go between. All that did was put up a barrier to keep us from the truth. Religion was never about worshiping God, religion has always been about control.
