RE: Statism: The Evolution of Religion
Organized statism and organized religion do have a number of similarities. We have known this for thousands of years, this is not a unique perspective.
However, organized statism and organized religion should Never be confused with the bible!
Organized states, and organized religions (as we know and define them) are both controlled by men, and these men control the minds of the masses.
Man is the common denominator in both instances, not God.
Do Not Confuse God or the Bible with Religion!
Organized states and organized religion both have man as its leader e.g. the President/Pope, Celebrity/Church Leader, Senator/Self-Proclaimed Prophet, or Congress/Committee of Men that make all of the decisions, and lays out all of the laws/doctrines that the naive masses blindly follow.
One example (there are hundreds) of how the bible does not mirror religion is when Jesus warned of "The "Traditions of Men" and told us how much he detested it. Jesus warned us of Statism but few took the time to stop and listen.
Today, Christianity has incorporated many of the "Traditions of Men" into their man-made religious interpretations while their origins remain un-biblical.
Man has already taken control of the main stream media, the Gov't and the education system - so, it should not come as a surprise that man has also taken control of the Christian (religious) narrative (research Controlled Opposition).
Man (state and religion) knows full-well that very few people will take the time to read the bible/constitution for themselves. Man knows that very few people will research evolution theory vs creation and come to their own conclusions. The State and Religion both know that the masses (for the most part) are totally unawares and asleep at the wheel.
True religion, is a personal relationship with God, not what man (state/religion) tells you that it is.
Follow me if truth is important to you.
We will leave no stone unturned.
