Amazes me, when believers refer back to bible as being like “the word” of God
How could they know that its word of God?
They’ll assume its so
They still put faith in the minds of the men who were originally involved in selecting what bits to keep, or what bits to discard
Like what is discussed and decribed in video above
Hell, perhaps even the basis of the bible might have been “borrowed from” (or evolved-from or followed-on from?) earlier religion.
There are info available . See here for one excellent source of info http://jandyongenesis.blogspot.com/
The trouble start, as soon as people assume the bible is Gods word. That’s the root of disharmony. Start referring to it “as word of God” in such a way so that even the young children ,around them, will then also begin to assume the same thing too
The simple pious believer, might also be type to be involved in helping to teach the children they come in contact with how to assume that the bible is “Gods word”
Once the book is “assumed“, by many, to be the word of God (IE: and that no question remain). Then a pathway has ALSO been paved to help create trouble
Bound to create big-trouble
Simple believers (the ones who hold a simple faith) perhaps wont even be the type of people either who’d ever be able to be aware , themselves, of exactly what harm they have “inadvertently” helped to happen. Will they? (when they wont be likely to research or study)
Perhaps they wont?
Maybe wont be slightly aware
I’d say a fair few wont be.Its not been their-own style of way of doing things?. They generally don’t bother much to ever research-much or study. Or ponder matters so
much deeply even anymore.
Meanwhile they may also still be feeling “completely righteous” about this way of theirs in which they’ll approach this. That’s just how these thing can happen (IE: nobody intentionally sets out to cause harm. Or to help misinform children. It just happens. Sort of like cultural traditional way of happening)
Happen almost like clock work
Even members among Exclusive Brethren ,will also live very much similar way too. Hold same “simple type” belief as well too, in religion they follow. Also wont be bothered much to care to do research or study themselves either
Not than any will be aware that this practice is in fact been harmful
They wont be aware of that either?
When human populations have been tended in flocks of what ebb and flow within forms sheeple-mindedness, like this
This is then the end result
That attitude, soon enough will also begin to permeate throughout the whole of humanity (1 Corinthians 5:6) as well too
Unless human would become very intent on teaching our children to be able to think for themselves (constantly)
Its also fairly unlikely it will ever begin to happen differently,either?
Not like rocket science
Rather more just like good use of common sense approach?
Pity that that isn’t being used as often as could be healthy for humanity to do
I’d suggest, that perhaps its been “religion” what has helped cause humanity to become more sheeple minded (being that religion has touched lives of far-larger population numbers of human. Environment= population majority)
Religion still hold the key to still be best-positioned, at present time as well, to still be the ones who’d act to help turn the table .
Religion is still best positioned
Control the groups best position to have best access to huge population of people , people of who they can then also help to teach different-ways (ie: teach how important it is for all-human to be thinking for themselves)
Believers are the one best positioned , “to cause” change for the better, or for worse
So far = for worse?
Perhaps many wont even be so aware, themselves of that level of responsibility that STILL rest among themselves?
I have some doubt that they will
However, thankfully children are not totally stupid. Are they, they’ll soon begin to vote with their own feet too.
Once they begin to figure out how their religious-elder are not been acting as responsibly,as they ought to have been
Children won’t completely lose sight of these things ?
Specially today in our modern environment . And environment now complete with pollution problems and environmental problems overflowing , and growing
Children will soon vote with their feet
Its natural. There comes a time when human mistake begin to stand out. Like an elephant also does too . Mistakes will begin to become too large for children to “over look”
Problem will be too large (for children) to overlook
Going forward , perhaps we can fully expect to see more and more action taken, from organised groups of children
Why expect the action might come from groups of children?
Mainly because, sadly the adult are often the ones who’s not been acting anywhere near responsible enough.
So basically its bound to happen. Adult are old-folk, and as such usually may have also become far too set in their own present traditional ways of
Religion isn’t set-up so as to encourage “change to continue to happen”
Spirituality on the other hand is a whole different kettle of fish. Spirituality (unlike religion) can allow that human should still feel free ,to further perfect their beliefs
Where as religion is more closely connected to dogged black and white fundamentalist attitude (closed mindedness)
This explain why the youth of today are now turning more toward spirituality (ditching religion)
The beauty of this is
Even atheist can identify with reverence and sense of spirituality and so on. Non believers can still get a sense of awe and wonder, from contemplating the wonder/beauty of nature and so on.Consider that pantheism is basically a form of sexed up atheism . So its obviously not any big stretch to see how atheist can also still find a sense purpose in our world (even although religion might act to suppress this possibility. Ive learned all about this “act” myself, through my own experience)
Children today are waking up today and turning spiritual
Meanwhile the religious ADULT are still wallowing within old ways. Plenty remaining too pig headed to even dare admit to possibility of themselves being wrong (how to do that?. After have acted for so long as if one were convinced of the beliefs held. Religion doesn’t generally ever lend itself – to allow room for beliefs to evolve/change?)
Often it will instead proceed to try to “suppress” option for change
What else can our children do?
Other than to boldly step forward and lead the way
