Well, yeah. I must admit that lately I've been doing the same thing and you know what? Whilst I've been in doubt and focusing on religion and things of man, God has been blessing me anyway. Sure made me think. These religious battles that have been going on for most of our History are about power for man, God doesn't need us to defend Him or judge others.<quoted text>Hello there Lupy, THAT is is whole problem in a nutshell, like many he simply cannot believe.
"The Kingdom of God is within."
What does that mean exactly? I think it means that our souls/spirit are a part of God, which He has given us, we have a part of our Creator inside of us and we can choose to tune in to that part or serve our human desires only.
Religion? It makes me laugh when people fight over religion to be honest. Or when people point out how the Romans stole their concepts from other religions. I just don't see it that way. Religion has evolved, as we have and is directed by customs of men. Yeah, the Holy Trinity existed for thousands of years in one form or another. I don't really think it matters.
God is eternal and man has been putting his interpretation of God into culture since the beginning of consciousness. Just like civilisation, politics and education. To focus on that, imo, is foolish and can lead one away from God.
