I think people are mislead by believing the God in the old testament is the same as in the new one.

The hebrew's god was a jealous warmongering physical entity with whom you could walk and follow the chariot's light in the sky, talk, be lightning-stricken if behavior was bad.  Genesis is a short story of a longer one described in the sumerian tablets, where the gods were pretty much ETs.

New testament's god, more often refered to as Father, aligns more to the  buddhist philosophy of peace, love, good vibes. 
Religion tends to blend these two concepts into one and scare the shit out of people to dominate.

Proof, do  not underestimate ones inner power or will to ram through difficulties.  Inner fire, Godliness, Soul, you name it.  It's within you already.

I never professed to be good at religion. 
All I know is "I was blind, and now I see".

                                -and-

God will send you who or what you need to progress.
Example: Deficient in math, He sends Firefox or Winkel.

English/diction deficient, He sends an English teacher.
(which was my situation awhile back.)

You don't have to necessarily think well, just believe well.

On the contrary I welcome your comments  :thumbsup:

Religion is a totalitarian belief. It is the wish to be a slave. It is the desire that there be an unalterable, unchallengeable, tyrannical authority who can convict you of thought crime while you are asleep, who can subject you to total surveillance around the clock every waking and sleeping minute of your life, before you're born and, even worse and where the real fun begins, after you're dead. A celestial North Korea. Who wants this to be true?

It is the most revolting and utter and absolute and heartless tyranny the human species has ever evolved. But at least you can fking die and leave North Korea!

Does the Bible or the Quran offer you that choice?

Yes they do.  It's the application that is faulty.  The claim of representing some celestial authority under cover of scripts generally accepted as holy is wrong.

Bravo, absolutely right! Religions cause most of the conflict in the world.
