DISGUSTING Things From My Theology Degree

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

Correct?

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 “inadvertentlyhelped to happen. Will they? (when they wont be likely to research or study)

Perhaps they wont?

Maybe wont be slightly aware

Who knows?

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 samesimple 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

Or not?

Unless human would become very intent on teaching our children to be able to think for themselves (constantly)

Then

Its also fairly unlikely it will ever begin to happen differently,either?

Not like rocket science

Is it

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

Pity that?

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)

However

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?

Will they?

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.

Or not?

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

Wont they?

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 living existing

Religion isn’t set-up so as to encourage “change to continue to happen”

Is it?

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

Correct?

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?)

Does it?

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
