"You can't understand why educated people today are bailing out of organized religion."<quoted text>
You can't understand why educated people today are bailing out of organized religion.
1 in 5 americans today claims no religion. Doubled in just 12 years.
Believe what you want, but there is no clear winner of the truth, if there was everyone would be that religion.
Of course they can't, because they don't even understand their own religion well enough to make this step themselves.
They would rather go on believing as they do, in the charade that they were given, than to take the effort and understand:
- why do I only believe in a portion of what Jesus taught?
- why do I think "Paul" is more enlightened than Jesus or the other Apostles?
All to do with Self, but through their eyes, they think this is being "selfish", "self-centered", or even "self-righteous".
All are incorrect, if one realizes that if one could examine themself of the faults they have within, that these "traits" would disappear.
They must be afraid of being free from these "sins".
