Why do we have religion ? Maybe churchdog can help me to understand. I have never felt the need to worship a god and would love to know what it is that compels so many of us humans to do so.
The way I see it. God is not religious. Why would he be ? In fact for us to think that God needs to be worshiped at all makes us look stupid. Seems to me that if you need to be praised and worshiped all the time you might have some selfesteem issues. Do you really think that a guy that can separate heaven from earth and night from day would have selfesteem issues ? I think God might find that to be a little insulting.
So if we can agree that God does not have any need for our worship, why do it ? Do you feel the need to do it so you will go to heaven. LOL. Or does it somehow make you feel superior to the to the nonbelievers, like you know something they don't.
Every time I hear about some innocent child that was killed in some horrible way, I wonder what was the point and why didn't the big man stop it. Does he care that little ? If so, what in the world makes you think he cares if you go to chruch every sunday ? Don't forget that when the bible or what ever it is that you read was written. Men thought the Earth was flat and that the sun went around the Earth.
Maybe I'm the stupid one and the joke will be on me.
The one thing I know is that if their is a heaven and hell, most of my friends will be in hell. I bet the partys are much better there
