I’m not here to bash Religions, in fact I’m here to speak the truth. How do I know this is the Truth? It’s happened time and time again throughout History. Every single major Empire has fallen, sooner or later. Religions are not exempt from this and I’ll explain why.
The biggest problem with Religion today is well….the People. The fact is, many people are divided among their belief system. No two people will ever agree 100% of the time on their Holy Text as a whole. Different parts of yet, yes, but not the entire thing.
There are Billions of people on this planet and that’s a staggering number. Even if we only had half a million or even just one million people, you’d still have people arguing and disagreeing with each other. Even the best of friends disagree with each other and only those that can set aside their differences truly have a strong friendship.
The Key to any Religions Success lies in Setting Aside your Differences. Yet, at the same time people will argue within their own Church. In fact, some will argue to the point of causing chaos in a sense. Then there is always those Wolves in Sheep Skins that will Talk the Talk, but won’t Walk the Walk.
Here’s the even bigger problem. Belief systems, only really cater to a few. Don’t believe me? Take one good look at Governments. They always cater to the Rich don’t they? Making it harder and harder every day for you to become better off. Inflation doesn’t help either.
The growth in a Church is what I consider the Inflation of the Church. It rises to the point where there are too many and then people split into various different branches. It always happens. Let’s look at Christianity as an example. Look at how many branches there are? Catholic, Prodistant, Mormon, Baptist, Methodist, etc, etc. Each one of those formed based on a disagreement. If this continues, there is likely to be millions of smaller branches.
I myself am a firm believer in a system that allows people to learn on their own. At a pace that is relevant to them. These people will seek out the knowledge that they need at the right moments. Many people already believe that there is a Higher Power or a God/Goddess out there. I for one do believe this. There has to be something much more powerful than I, otherwise I wouldn’t be here.
However, I won’t follow a Doctrine that brainwashes into believing something you’re not entirely sure about to begin with. Yes, I did say Brainwash. Don’t believe me? They tell the same story over and over every single year. The same story around Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc, etc. They’re trying to brainwash people so they’ll stay in the Church.
Another reason why Religions Will Eventually Fail. The Youth. If you Force someone to go to Church and make the think they Believe the same that you do, they’ll hate you for it. In fact, they’ll strike out on their own paths searching for something else. And Churches wonder why their Youth are Rebellious.
Let’s take a look at a metaphor. Sense Holy Text are so filled with them. If you take a look at a gutter pipe that comes down from your Gutter. Let’s say it has no Gutter Pipe.
Now, let’s say that rain gutter is causing a good sized hole in the ground because of the water dropping out of it. If you take 2-3 people, they should be able to fix it without a problem. For example, the solution would be to add a pipe to it so the water can drain.
However, the problem lies with adding more people to the issue. If you had 10 people trying to fix one problem, then they might not agree with each other. They might agree with what the initial problem is, but they might not agree with the proper pipe for example to fix the problem. Some might even go as far as suggesting putting a Barrel underneath to catch the rain. See the problem here?
And this is why every empire must fall. Ever heard that quote? Empire get too large, and then they get out of control, and then they fall. These are all facts that have happened throughout History. You may not like these facts, but go check your History Books. The Roman Empire fell because it was too great. The Alexandrian Empire eventually fell. Hitler got too big for his control and look what happened to him.
This is even happening today with Greece. Greece is falling and falling hard. Why? Because too many people work for the Government and there aren’t enough people to support it. The same will eventually happen to all great Religions of Today’s time. Well, that’s enough of my rant for the day. I hope that you have a wonderful day and week ahead.
