Religion and Social Ills

Mankind’s many faith systems are each self-advertised and promoted as being the positive method that inspires people to live their lives with more respectfulness and righteousness.  But are practices which are formulated to pivot upon judgmental and prejudicial behavior really the untainted “narrow path” to attain Heaven or Paradise?

When faith systems teach seekers that all human entities skate on thin ice at the edge of the black hole of “sin,” the minds of the faithful are persistently maneuvered into a submerged fear-based emotional state.  Faith system merchants often lace their promotional spiels with heavy condemnation over minor differences which human entities are prone to.  The “flock” has then been “blessed” with inappropriate belief that their faith system holds some exclusive favor with the all inclusive Creative Source.  It’s an excellent tactic for the faith merchants, but it is hell on a devout person’s rationality.  The sly inference of never quite measuring up to god’s expectations for you tends to fester in the subconscious, and that energy is inclined to gestate over time and give birth to little deformed demons of resentment.

Since personal consciousness rests within a god-ordained animal configuration during its limited experience the natural response to all the subtle negativity packaged into faith system merchandising is a stimulation of the hypothalamus which often triggers a fight-or-flight response.  But the crafted religious dictum is that you are allowed to do neither. The internal physical/mental mechanism then must adjust something like this: The blood vessels become constricted and blood pressure rises, stomach acidity increases, and body muscles remain tense to get ready for physical confrontation.  The most immediate result of all this internal defense activity is that it serves to suppress the immune system which is the body’s defense against genuine life threatening conditions.

Western organized belief systems prosper because they have always sermonized that their is a constant threat which allegedly exists between each person’s soul and the possibility of oblivion.  Cultivation of fear for the unknown makes for an easy target to hit.  And the built-in advantage is that it also keeps the faithful suspicious of any minor but natural (god-ordained) differences which individualizes each person’s lifestyle.  It is a scientifically proven fact that over eighty percent of all human dysfunctions have been traced to emotional stress. So is mankind’s higher potential really being served by such cultivation of fanaticism, suspicion and intolerance as is religiously churned out by man-invented faith systems?

Organized faith systems regularly stand guilty of emphasizing and passing judgment on what are but minor natural differences rather than counseling tolerance and inspiring understanding of life’s intended diversity and variety.  These faith systems generally give much lip service to tolerance and charity, but this is too often disproved by their typical attitude that their faith system alone—and it alone–holds some exclusive position with the Creative Source which they personify as “God.”  The inappropriate cultivation of belief that their faith system possesses some exclusive expressway into an imagined super being’s favor generates only inappropriate expectations, both of others and of one’s self. The indulgence in such belief programming brushes extremely close to what may be termed true sin, for it sets believers upon a path of negative life occurrences: i.e. judgmental attitudes, feelings of guilt over natural desires, practicing conditional love,  avoidance of personal responsibility, lack of forgiveness, lust for material things, and a host of other favorite themes of faith system merchants.

The concept of monotheism is actually a practice of personifying the all-inclusive Creative Source as a principled, judgmental being (God).  This allows for the conducting of a corporate-style business under the assertion that the powers which created and sustains everything is human-like and plays favorites with the diverse and varied energy combinations that are manifested in the human species.  This is a conman tactic which is then slyly intensified by grafting a foreboding of death and judgment into their sales pitch.  This further allows those claiming to hold the moral high ground to peddle their faith system’s insurance which promises a glorious afterlife.  Unfortunately mankind can never attain its higher potential through such ego-stroking indulgence.

Such faith system practices will never ensure that peace, tolerance and brotherly love will actually be achieved by followers.  Any acceptance and true charity for the natural diversity and variety that is active as life would deprive the self-appointed god-ambassadors of their pretense of worldly authority. Thus man-made faith systems commonly teach judgment passing, hairsplitting, self serving rite and ritual, spiritual exclusiveness, and similar propaganda.  For seekers it all comes at a steep price:  Loss of the true standard into higher alignment with the universal power.
