The Religion Fiasco

Religion has done many atrocious things in the name of God. One of the primary things that religion has destroyed, is the perception of God. So many religions leading to so many different Gods, tend to confuse the very people who are in search of God. This confusion can cause a person to doubt if God really exist, and if he does, then where is he. Why does he allow so many atrocities to befall mankind? People have so many questions for God, and my blog site is about "Understanding God."

Move Religion, Get Out The Way

fi·as·co /fēˈaskō/
noun
1. A thing that is a complete failure, esp. in a ludicrous or humiliating way.
"his plans turned into a fiasco"


Religion is a fiasco, and it's one of those things that mankind just doesn't need. Since the belief in a GOD, which started thousands of years ago, mankind has invented over 4,200 religions across the world. That's 4,200 different beliefs and practices that worship 1,000's of GODS. So which one is the real GOD, that many religions ideas coming at one person is incredulous, how can anyone handle such a bombardment. Its no wonder that so many people are confused about GOD.

Maybe the people who started religion believed that it would explain the world around them. That's fine, if it wasn't for the abnormal development of religion throughout the millennia. These religions tell us so many different things about GOD, that it sent me into a state of confusion, so does my religion really matter? I've read the new testament a few times, and I've never seen where Jesus told people to be Catholics, or Protestant. He only said to spread his teaching and fellowship amongst one another, to keep the faith.

On my quest to find GOD, (Matthew 7:7) I looked into different religions to see if one made more sense than the other. However, all I got was contradictions. One would say that all goes to heaven, others talk of nirvana, or purgatory. Some have been taught that those in other religions would never get salvation, and burn in hell forever, no matter if they were ignorant or not. Now does that sound like a loving GOD, no, not to me. I was told that when I die I would be in an unconscious sleep (Ecclesiastes 9:5), and others said that when I die I would go straight to heaven (2Corinthians 5:8). Once again this is confusing to anyone who is trying to understand GOD. Raise your hand if you've ever been told that all roads lead to GOD..do they really?

The confusion of religious teaching have brought about such religions as Atheism and Agnosticism, and its not to hard for me to understand why there are non believers. Although, I don't understand why the very people who have decided that religion and GOD is a farce, has decided to confuse us even further with their "no GOD" religions. So why won't they just "not" believe in GOD, why does not believing in GOD have to be a religion too. Either you believe in him or you don't, why do we need religion telling us how we should view GOD.

Well I don't need a group of people dressed up in robes telling me why I should be in their religion. Because of all the confusion that religion has caused me all my life, even driving me to tears on multiple occasions, I have decided to rid myself of religion entirely and become "Spiritual". I realized that there in nothing wrong with fellow shipping with people who love GOD, but I don't have to be a Catholic, or a Baptist, or a Methodist, or even non denominational to serve and love GOD.

I do love GOD, I do serve GOD, I try my very best. After 40 years, I've just started my own personal relationship with GOD. After 'knowing' about GOD for so many years, and because I decided to leave religion behind, I just don't only 'know' about GOD, I am actually getting to know GOD, and I've never felt more complete.

Praise Jehovah, Yahweh, Adonai, Elohim,

Amen

From my own experience , I have found that Christianity has led me from religion to relationship with God , by the power of the Holy Spirit dwelling in my spirit ... In that I am safe and content ..
God bless you
