The older I get the less I believe in religious or political indoctrination. My profound dismay at the statement by the Amish relative who said the brutal murder of five children was the will of god and that he forgave the maniac who wiped out in an instant, those innocent lives, has finally convinced me that his god just does not exist.
How can such evil be the will of any god?
If his version of the christian god is false, how many others are equally false? Make up the rules as you go along? The pope has decided that the 400 year theory of the existance of ‘limbo’ is now false. Babies born and who sadly die before baptism can now go directly to heavan, instead of being in limbo. Nothing to do with the fact that the muslim faith has believed this all along?
From commoners to english kings, all have formed there own version of christianity. All with there well doctrinated adherents. The koran and bible say there is only one god. It is time to renounce all the false prophets just as the people of eastern europe destroyed the false disciples of communism.
I will continue to believe in right and wrong, perform acts of charity, and attempt to live a honest life. I prefer to watch a sunrise, hear a birdsong, remember the birth of my children and be filled with the awe of nature, than to hear all the mumbo jumbo from the warlike, mainstream, world religions.
