This is so true; the meaning of Church was lost the moment these Bishops realize they could play God over their members souls.
"The sadest thing is people are so blinded by religion & the promise of a better 'life' to come that they forget to make the life they have now the best it could be. The social control mechanism of organised religion manipulates & distorts true faith for its own means and anyone caught using their skills of independent thinking to question the church system is a godless, hell bound, soulless devil worshipper. If you need to attend church to find GOD you are looking in the wrong place!"
I hope everyone is well.
If you notice I always speak of the Heaven here on earth. I question Church preparing its members for Heaven, but cant teach them how to live here on earth. Why does a Church member feel every member except their Leaders have to wait to die to enjoy life? Talk about not practicing what they preach. These UHOP Bishops and their families live the life of luxury. While their members stay on bending knees praying for something better. If they keep their monies in their own pockets they wouldnt have to pray so hard, nor wait to die to enjoy death.
