Throughout time, the concept of an afterlife, has tended to devalue the earthly existence. No matter whether it was through the practice of human sacrifice rituals http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_sacrifice .
Or whether its something to do with some children’s lives being lost, due to their parents faith http://issuehawk.com/tamar/2014/04/25/80-child-deaths-linked-to-oregon-church-parents-say-it-is-a-matter-of-faith.html http://childrenshealthcare.org/?page_id=190
Or whether its to do with some act of Jihad, in a struggle against any people whom don’t believe in the Islāmic God http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jihad
Or even to do with some family lives, that have been sacrificed, by a number of cults like the exclusive brethren. http://wikipeebia.com/forums/index.php http://wikipeebia.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=14&sid=c3b7066add7a576fb24c74ae8315787b
Or perhaps just has to do with the rather tardy attitudes, of some theists, who seem rather reluctant, to quickly admit to sex abuses http://archbishopcranmer.com/justin-wept-over-church-of-england-child-abuse/
It’s still always something to do with the way that the “concept of an afterlife” also has the roll-on affect, of devaluing our earthly existence
Even with the way that the liberal Christians, don’t seem to care, to step-up and speak out in regards to ongoing harm being caused via faith abuses
These folk also will likely figure , that they don’t need to act-now . Because they also do believe in the concept of an afterlife.
Therefore they are also less likely to see any need for prompt action,within our earthly existence
The concept of an afterlife has the tendency to devalue our earthly existences.In so many ways
So many people like to believe that Jesus has paid for the full price of their hope for salvation People who choose to believe this are fooling themselves. For they are overlooking the ongoing price that is still continually being paid
When humans believe in the existence of an afterlife. They also tend to see less reason to value our earthly lives so highly
