Religion and why I hate it.

I hate religion. Religion is why thousands died on September 11th. Religion is what started countless wars. Religion causes pain, suffering, and is usually pure bullshit.

Christianity, at its core, isn’t about that. Many Christians try to make it that, but they’re missing the point. It isn’t about how many free car washes you can do. It isn’t about tithing. It isn’t about baptism. It isn’t about being a missionary. It isn’t about getting people saved.

It’s about a relationship.

I don’t want to be dedicated to a religion. Religion imprisons.

Jesus, however, is a different question entirely.

If people could only get that. If people could only live by that. They may not be as dedicated to their religion as others–but they’ll be more dedicated to their God than anyone else will ever be able to claim.

And isn’t that the point?

  1. To me, my Christianity is about loving others more than I love myself. That is my ultimate goal. And that means disagreeing with my “religion” on more than one occasion and issue. But am I phased by it? No. Because the greatest commandment is to love the father, and the second is to love your neighbor. I’m doing my best to do both. The rest of it? Nice things to follow, but everything falls in place once you figure out both of those.

  2. Basically and superficially, religion would seem to have little to do with hate. Nearly every religion seems to preach love, peace, and tolerance. But of course, we know differently. People often hate people of other religions.

  3. Please be more open-minded and critical thinker. Don’t be so gullible.
