Nope, I never said all religions are corrupt. But there is a big difference between general spirituality and the teachings of various church doctrines. I read the Bible and believe there are many wise and thoughtful messages within it. But I also believe we should each have the freedom to question that which is presented as 'law' by certain groups, vs that which we may instinctively feel in our hearts to be true. There are many different religious writings that explore similar ideas, like unconditional love, for example. I question the statement that we are all born sinners and destined for hell unless we perform certain ceremonies, like baptism. In particular, I protest the accusation from certain people that I will go to hell if I'm not baptized. Others can do as they wish, of course. But I prefer that they leave my soul out of it. That's my business. With respect, I mean no offense to anyone. People need to realize that making statements about their personal beliefs will inspire others to do the same in response, and they may not always agree.
At least those who threaten hell and damnation for anyone who doesn't adhere to their rituals. Christ is Love, and we are all made in His image. Some churches are more for exclusivity than inclusivity, based on biblical interpretations by certain individuals, and prefer hostile spiritual threats to universal love in their philosophy. We need to be careful of which church we follow, if any, for evil has infiltrated Christianity since the beginning to serve its purpose. If "all mankind is born sinful" then why should we blindly accept their spiritual laws? Truth and love is unconditional, we should rather trust in our hearts and speak to God on our own terms, and not put our faith in the hands of fallible men (or women), about whom we know nothing. Edit: I believe that is the basis of Martin Luther's break from papal rules. Fundamentalist sects that branched out or broke from this belief have strayed from the true message.
This. The current bible as we know it was compiled by a bunch of men, lead by Constantine, at the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD (or thereabouts). If "all mankind is born sinful and guilty deserving of hell" then why should we trust their words? Rather it's better to study that which they chose to leave out, or the origins of that which they subverted to suit their purpose, such as the Gnostic gospels. God is love, and is within all of us, and is accessible to all of us, and one should be careful of the church and its doctrines. Thoth was the god of priests and ritual and magick, and taught men how to conduct themselves in their so-called churches according to his wishes via the Emerald Tablets. Thoth was also the Egyptian version of Baal/Baphomet, most likely. Chew on that.
When I say technophobic, I'm referring to specific examples in my life who grew up before personal computers, of the boomer gen; people I know, like my mum, who never embraced technology, can barely use a cellphone, never learned basic computer skills, and thus severely limit their sources of information. They are afraid of computers, and never bothered to learn.
Agreed. I watch vids on YT, myself, but I was referring to self-limiting exposure, as you pointed out. There's a lot more out there than just cute kitten vids. For example, tons of documentaries, spiritual videos, how-to vids on dyi projects, that kind of stuff is great. But thank you for defining confirmation bias. I'd heard it before, but never really zeroed in on its meaning.
Agreed. I've observed that the most ignorant and willfully blind types as described above are also the same types who are technophobic, do not know how to 'internet', or only use the internet for FB, IG, YT, Netflix, and msm news. They are afraid to take the road less travelled, value obedience more than courage, and hide from uncomfortable truths in personal issues. Many of the people I know in this category are also narcissistic bully types who will attack any who don't accept their opinions and will never admit they're wrong about anything.
Or, rather, they fled Khazaria after their defeat, spread out across the world (the Rothchildes split up and infiltrated Bavaria, Venice, London, US, etc) and then made their way back to Ukraine, the old Khazaria. But they originated from Babylon, until the fall of Ahab and Jezebel. Happy hunting indeed!
Yes, they used Jews for banking and trade, but because usury was/is considered a sin according to Muslim and Christian faith. Remember how Jesus attacked the Pharisees for trading money at the entrance to the Holy Temple. It is practiced widely and encouraged in the Jewish faith. Implementing Jews to manage their money matters was a convenient backdoor entry into banking. They are and were better at it because they'd been doing it longer, more openly, but I doubt there was much trust there. People don't trust what they don't understand. I agree with you, but for different reasons.
An above commentator stated that good health is most important and when people lose their health, due to covid, mnra jabs, or anything else, they will wake up. But in this age when money buys the things we need to survive, when we are no longer hunter gatherers but ruled by the financial system, the collapse of this system is directly related to our physical security, or so it appears to the masses. I believe it will be a combination of sickness and financial collapse that will initiate the waking of the normies. If one doesn't do it, the other surely will. Then there's the threat of nuclear war, and rampant pedophilia and human trafficking. They are hitting us from all sides, and it will only facilitate a faster awakening.
I read a great article the other day on Epoch Times about the education of John Adams' family. Was very inspirational, if you're interested.

Nope, that's not what I said, and I was responding to a quote that was directly from the bible, and my point was that the bible can be interpreted in many ways. One person's interpretation may not be the same as another's. I have great respect for the Bible's teachings, as I do other religious texts. Many important gospels were deliberately left out of the Bible, though, and I look at the Bible as an historical document that is inspiring, but I don't believe it should be used as a tome of absolute law.
