What’s Wrong with Organized Religion?

Irreligion around the world .

I hear it all the time; “ I don’t like organized religion”

They say “why is something that is supposed to be organized so un- organized”.

Tis true, I’m afraid. There seems to be a lot of confusion as to how organized the major religions are.  And, because the tend to bicker with each other (and themselves) then many people are obviously turned off by this sort of thing.

With good reason…Who wants all that drama anyways?

Well, millions of people it seems. So given that kinda record there must be something to it right?  To be completely against organized religeion is a bit silly.  Millions of people look to it for hope an direction for life.

So are all these people weak? Or maybe in need of a “crutch” They can’t seem to find their own direction so they need something else to lean on? Or a book of rules to tell them how to live?

I don’t think so.  Believing in something in my experience points to strength, not weakness.  It is far easier for me to “let myself go” and do what I want rather than try to be obedient to some moral laws. It’s easy to simply do what feels good.  –  And trust me, I know how to do that 🙂

So, recently… I joined up. It’s all good, except I don’t get to sleep in till noon on Sundays anymore.

Who Goes to Hell? Part 1

How should we examine the idea of hell? Eternal punishment for EVER! A permanent vacation home at the lake of fire!

Tho shall never get a drink of water…EVER!

Indeed I used to hear radio evangelists talking about a particular celebrity who had died… “Well, he’s in hell now… Unless he repented…And I doubt that he did”

It’s interesting hearing sermons about hell… Is the preacher actually “preaching” hell?  Or the “Good News” of escape from it by believing in Jesus? It’s sometimes hard to tell…

I am going to start a series of posts about the idea of hell
and who is going there.And perhaps who is already there. This has been a fascination of mine for quite some time now…  I have blogged about hell before of course..

Things are changing in the Christian Religion. I wanna be with the good guys… Now, don’t you?

Nostradamus – A True Prophet?

There has always been a lot said about this guy… His clairvoyance is regarded as top of the heap… Nostradamus – Preatty freakin cool 🙂
His prophesies include:

  • French Revolution
  • Atom Bomb
  • Adolf Hitler
  • Sept 11

Many Biblical teachers regard this guy as a “false prophet” A evil occultist. To each his own…Why not take a look at some of his stuff for the fun and entertainment of it… Or is that playing with HellFire?

I wonder why there are rarely any “good prophecies” You know, ones that don’t predict the end of the world or mass murder… Is this just as good as it gets?

Do Men With Long Hair Shame Themeselves?

Is long hair unacceptable to church people?

1 Corinthians 11:14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?
15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.

What do ya’ll think about that? Didn’t Samson have long hair? He was kind of a knucklehead tho huh? A muscle head.  A lump head that got played by a chick… Some people in church’s  still believe that it’s a SIN to have long hair.

I bet earrings or tattoos are right out huh?

Do Church’s Accept Sinners?

It was pointed out to me tonight that the difference between Church and Alcoholics Anonymous is that AA accepts “sinners” (alcoholics) and tells them to keep coming back.

I would think that is the church’s job… Maybe this is the reason that people feel they need to “clean up” before they go to church.

AA also provides a “program” to change… One step at a time. The church seems to fail at helping people overcome their sins… Of course there’s nothing wrong with doing both..
Keep on coming back!

Is Obama the Anti Christ?

This guy was telling me that Barak Obama was the anti Christ. He said that it was predicted in the Bible that he would come and lead the world into Armageddon… That is the last world war that destroys the entire earth.

He said it was predicted that the world would end in the year 2012
and that coinsideds with the Obama term. Isn’t that strange?

He said it all fits together because his Dad was a Muslim
(and so is he) and that his relationship with shady terrorists confirms it all. It’s a strage world huh?
