Religion: a form of control or REAL? Posted on 01-25-2004
Gateseeker

I'm a son of a preacher man, but i have my questions about religion too. I know God is real but sometimes i get confused. So to you all religious people think about this. Was religion created to control people (remember: in the old testament there were no police men) or is religion REAL?

Religion created to control people???? :roll: People draw stupid conclusions.If you feel that someone is trying to use religion to control,then youre obviously going to the wrong place of worship.

my only problem with watching TV preachers is that they always want some money from me. Preacher talking 'bout: " call into my ministry and make a commitment to give one-hundred trillion dollars and the Lord will bless you!" *hoops & hollars. *goes into epileptic seizures I count down to see how many tapes they're gonna try to sell me, how many donations they want me to give. With in five minutes almost(key word) any preacher will reference money at least once! I will pay tithes though

The church is a business, no doubt about that. But let me clarify my point a little bit. Food for thought: :idea: In the beggining of time there were no police men to police the streets. So accordingly they created a religion, something to make people think twice before doing something inhumane. For Instance, we have James :twisted: and Connie , James is uncontrollable so Connie creates this unseen sprit. Connie tells James that if he continues to "sin" God will punish him indefinitely. James becomes afraid and straightens his act. Furthermore, he spreads the word to be good or this unforseen spirit will punish him. In conclusion, i know God is real but it is a belief, and i have faith that my belief is real. Yet and still, I question these things. I am a "James" and i think that by even putting up this post God is going to punish me. When i die am gone no knowledge of this life, no matter if i go to heaven or hell.

SMH funny how he doesnt mention that Allah, Yahweh and God are all one in the same just under different names :roll: When Christians do wrong, everybody is quick to say, "that's just a minority who uses the bible to further their own needs" but when a minority of anothe religion does it their ****. The Christian faith has raged war and enslaved millions in the past and justified it through the bible, though that is a minority and the history of the religion, it is not exactly peaceful IMO, but he does not mention that in his little rants. SMH IT'S STR8 UP IGNORANCE. The man is just taking advantage of post September 11 sentiment and perpetuating a negative and largely false stereotype that could easily be flipped on the Christian faith. Dammit I cant stand televangelists :roll:

actually, they're not. if you read the qoran, the way that they desribe thier god and his ways differs from my God. "...good! all of that **** will be a blessing to george w. bush! those heathens didn't know what to do with it anyway!" oh yeah! :lol: read my signature! it's awesome! :lol:
