If You Want To Save Your Children - Escape The Religion Industry

13 posts in this topic

Nowadays seems around half the really bad news has its origins in religion. Probably too late to do much with the adults involved so the future rests with the children. They must be protected from the religion industry - the biggest industry in the world - and a mostly tax exempt one at that. http://escapethereligionindustry.com

Hi escapee and welcome to Chani.  Yes, religion has a lot to answer for.  Over the many years I have read many bibles and text from various religions - why?  Because you can't make a decision on something unless you investigate what it is all about, its teachings, it truths and lies.  To me, they are all very much alike in some ways and I accept that the majority of texts are somehow not the whole truth  But having said that, if one believes in religion, one normally believes in a God, or higher power/creator/source and this can only be a good thing to me.  There is so much more to this whole issue, but to have faith in a greater power, the creator energy, whatever each may interpret that to be can only be a good thing IMO.

It is the dogma's, the rules, the lies that make religion the unstable creation that 'men' have made it to be.

Hello escapee,

Welcome to CHANI!

Like Jess, I also looked into lots of religions and after all, nothing really made sense when the core concepts became "religion".

When people gather, then greediness seeps into the picture with how to run the group...

That is NOT the core concepts but just some human crap that followed, and I hate it.

I'm looking forward to see the humanity to grow beyond of that. ;)

Hi Jessica and great to read your input. I too believe in a higher power and take great delight in in its mysteries and since I am without a religion I get even greater delights trying to unravel some of them. Its when ones clergy allknowingly set it all in front of you as a complete truth that the problems arise. This causes spiritual atrophy and greatly serves the religion. Could you ever imagine a cleric announcing that you have evolved spiritually so well that its now time for you to leave the flock (sheep) and make your own way from now on.

I know escapee, but we have talked about this before and as I said then, some people need religion - as younger souls they need boundaries and rules and also as young souls they need and want to be lead.  Just because some of us are past that it doesn't mean that we shouldn't understand and accept that some people do need it.  The dogma of religion is very frustrating those who are past that need and I am sure we will eventually get to the point where it is no longer needed for anyone.  :-*:-*

I think that I have to agree with Jessica. My father is a pastor, so obviously, I grew up submerged in it to my eyeballs, 24/7. I do believe that it is a necessity for children to have a good understanding of religion. No one will ever believe 100% of what any religion teaches as we get older. Personally, I don't think we should. So much of religion IS man made. But God, or whatever you want to call "him", is the soul of any church. The churches reason for being in the first place.

Religion gives us a good head start. It teaches us how to be one with the almighty. I am not a die hard, you had better go to church every weekend or you will never get to heaven, type of person. I believe that, if you can feel that presence any time you pray, meditate, or just when you are focusing on "him", than you are where you're supposed to be. If you lose that connection, then it is time to start going back to church and relearn what you forgot.

It's not about which church. It's not about following a dumpster full of church rules. It's about gaining that connection, learning how to keep it, and exercising those muscles every day. Nothing else matters. Not the building, congregation or pastor. Just you and the almighty. Learning to love him and the world just as you want to be loved. And you are. No matter what you decide is best for you and your family.  God bless.

hcvslayer, and mine to you.  ;D. I would never trade my childhood for anything. I would not be the person I am today if it weren't for my upbringing. I am very disenchanted with society and government today. I know, however, that we CAN change. I pray for that every day.  ????

Hi angel. I do understand where you are coming from having been brought up with a religious background but what of those who lived before religion and were inspired by - the Greek philosophers or Confucius? Are today's religious followers any further advanced. I would argue no. Having lived and worked three years in China where there is little religion the people there cannot see a need or purpose for it and we cannot say they are the less for it. If younger souls need or seek guidance they would be better served by the philosophers of old who at that time hadn't turned their wisdom into industry. Their wisdom of old is very accessible today but of course religion of today will steer one well away from it.  Just Thinking. http://escapethereligionindustry.com. Read my religious experience there.

Escapee.  I do believe that people CAN come to a deep fulfilling relationship with the Almighty, regardless of ANY "church".  I should have been clearer on that. I do not believe that it is necessary and the ONLY way to go, but any church is not inherently evil.

There are certain people within that make it seem evil (rules, regs, etc.). Religion is NOT the problem, people are.  Just as a family may have a black sheep within it, that does not make the whole family bad. I would never force my, or any other religion, on anyone, and that is not my goal here.

I wish all the best for you Escapee. I know you will find what you are looking for, eventually. No matter which way you go, you will be blessed. Keep questioning and searching. That is the only way to get to where you want to be.

Note that Sanders is a socialist who is presently holding an office in the government of the USA, which is not supposed to be a socialist government. During the election wasn't he making a bunch of socialist promises?

Is that not the teapot calling the kettle black?
