There is certain theists that believe, that religion and human-unity, can somehow find a way, to coexist.
But they never go into detail of describing and explaining, how this will ever be likely to actually occur. The Christian theist’s, will have read Matthew 10:34 too.A scripture, that was written by an ancient theist, whom even way back then, had already understood the implications of religion.
But human faith,often seems to have very little connection, to reality of matters.
The theist that wrote Matthew 10:34 was approaching his method of thought, from the angle of reality, while taking an honest objective look at matters, using an attitude of real common sense.
His conclusion was about,taking a look at reality. Void of faith, in regard to any conclusion, of what he may have hoped for.
He was being blunt, and openly honest.
By the time Matthew 10:34 was written, humans had already had heaps of experiences, with a number of different types of religions. None of which had ever delivered peace. None of which had ever been able to help create human-unity,either
Theist’s will like to say something like.There really is no “real wall” between us.
Its about a form of wishful thinking. Their faith
But they have overlooked, that there need not be any real wall.
They will like to talk about human-unity.And will suggest,that there is no one in, and no one out.And so on
Sounds great, on the surface,so long as it’s what you want to believe.
But if no one is in,or out . Then why? this need of religion.
If human equality exists.If humans are all considered as “one”,all considered as being the same. In God’s view .Why is there the need to even bother? to create any of these religious groupings.
People created these groups.As a way to pigeon-hole people.A way to place people in a “special” particular class
The person who authored the scripture Matthew 10:34. Fully understood how there was a form of bigotry, that always rides alongside religion.
Because religion is, a humans way of trying to find ways for them to feel like they have become kind of superhuman.
As such ,thus it automatically creates a form of bigotry,that classes people as being either “in” or “out” of this fellowship.
If people were considered all-ok , just as they were/are. If it was considered good enough,for people to just learn to get along,and admit being imperfect human
Then what use is religion ?
Religions have been designed in similar structure, to what street gang’s also are. If you are with us,you are “in” and are “ok”. If you are not with us,then you are “out” and thus are “not good enough”.
Religions,exactly like gangs do ,will also gather their strength, via their human numbers.Their philosophy revolves around the very tried and trusted method of “divide and rule”
1. If gangs didn’t form within a society.Then what is there? that will exist to help “set people apart“, and thus help divide the people up within this society
2. If religion’s didn’t form within a society.Then what is there? that will exist to help “set people apart“, and thus help divide the people within this society
There is so many theists within society,whom also suffer, due to religious separations. Many would love to not need to feel excluded.Will really wish that separation didn’t exist,and cause harm to them.
Yet they may still agree to help prop up forms of division.
Obviously.These people must have huge faith,in miracles happening
Some even love to rattle on with the talk about people “all” being considered as “brother’s and sisters” in Christ. Thus they all want to overlook the amount of division that has actually permeated right throughout society. They will happily, try to find any way at all, that they feel there is, in which to delude themselves,in thinking, that unity actually exists
Little wonder then ,that we would now have this need of approximately 41,000 “Christian™” domination’s. Just within the Christian religious spectrum alone
You know , because religion is just so much about unity .
Isn’t ?? it.
Like no one is “in” . And no one is “out”
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1
Some humans used to have “great faith” in the idea that ritual sacrifice of human blood could some how be used to help better their lives. It was the substance of things hoped for. But the evidence of things not seen
In other words, it was -> Blind faith
