When You Limit Yourself, Guess What Happens?
Modern religion wants to keep you inside a box.
They tell you..."the bible is all you need"
They tell you...."dont question GOD, his ways are higher than yours"....
They tell you.."just have faith...thats all you need".

Guess what happens when you limit yourself to learning only the bible?
Your abilities become the very same thing. LIMITED.
Guess what happens when You believe everything you are told without learning for yourself?
You Live in a box.
Think for yourself.
Learn for Yourself.
Live without Limits.

The kingdom of God is within you.

Jesus isn't the problem. His "followers" are. If he were in his grave he'd roll over at how his message has been coopted and bastardized.

On dealing with religious bigots:

Use their psycho-spiritual inertia as a slingshot to propel yourself further.

Leave those who would thwart your evolution in the dust.

You can't truly reason, if the answers have to go in one direction by default. In order to reason and think logically, you have to be prepared to accept it, no matter where it may lead. Even if it leads you away from something you may have been taught was the truth. Religion and Christianity discourages such an idea.

To have faith in a creator, that's one thing. Anyone who looks around at the world with an open mind, will see and understand that we are not just here by random chance, and know that there is indeed a spiritual force at work within the universe.

But to have faith that that same creator could be limited in the ways religion limits it, that is blind faith indeed.

It's well past time that the spiritual blinders come off, and we open our eyes to all that exists around us, and the truth therein.

No one is perfect. A babe before walking will first stumble and fall many times but NEVER gives up until he succeeds.

Always remember, ultimately, to never follow any person's belief. Your relationship with God is between you and God.

If nothing else, remember this: religion = subservience, control and conformity, the same template as EVERY government

"Most believers would kill truth if truth threatened their religion." L. K. Washburn

"This crime called blasphemy was invented by priests for the purpose of defending doctrines not able to take care of themselves." Robert Ingersoll

"If anyone wants to know how God feels, it's a warm light as if the sun is poking through dark clouds and lifting your spirits with pure joy."

Yes, if there's anything I've learned in all that's changed in my worldview in the last few years, it's that there is always something new to learn. To close yourself off to different ideas without at least investigating into them and seeing what merit they have, is to stunt your spiritual growth.
