Is the illusion so much more comfortable than stark reality? Yes.
Will humans wither and die without belief in a meaning or reasoning to any of this?
Is it laziness or passing the buck to worship a 'leader' or messiah?
I notice the males claimants like going by some version of 'father'..
Is it the devious taking advantage of the gullible? Or do they really believe they are divine? And why would anyone believe them?
Are messiahs and saints the same?
I recall AGC saying all the saints were possessed and that is how they performed their miracles..
Also, the in exorcism is it usually the Holy Spirit that is ousted and leaves a hole for any spirit to haunt.
Does asceticism lead to activation? Or possession?
