Religion Is ‘Made Up’ & Used To Control People
« on: 2016 43, 08/11/16, 10:43:29 AM »
Here is an good article at Collective Evolution http://www.collective-evolution.com/2016/05/31/american-bishop-explains-how-religion-is-made-up-used-to-control-people/
that exposes religion for what it really is. It includes a YouTube video by Jon Shelby Sponge, a retired American bishop of the Episcopal Church

<quote> In the video,https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkaH3hEmV3M
Sponge affirms that “religion is always in the control business, and that’s something people don’t really understand. It’s in the guilt producing control business.”

Every church I know claims that we are the true church, and they have some ultimate authority. . .  The idea that the truth of God can be bound in any human system by any human creed by any human book, is almost beyond imagination for me. God is not a Christian, God is not a Jew or a Muslim or a Hindu a Buddhist; all of those are human systems which human beings have created to try to help us walk into the mystery of God. <end quote>
