The Concept Of an afterlife. Devalues Our Earthly Existence

animal_sacrifice6 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

About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.
