It seems that most people NEED religion to function in this world!
Religion is a mental disorder characterized by abnormalities in the perception and/or expression of reality. Distortions in perception may affect all five senses. It is a serious social disorder. In most severe cases those affected are willing to kill and die or enthusiastically SUPPORT THOSE WHO DO. They behave very silly and irrational in full obedience to the dogmas of their respective Church brands while FORCING their views on the rest of us!
Christians never believe that the Bible means what it says; they are fully convinced that it says only what their preachers tell them. That is why the Bible is still functional today! The Bible writers developed a Mafia way of telling people under their control to OBEY their ministers in all things. The Early Church Fathers predicted that Christianity in general wouldn't mind the lack of a direct face to face contact with God as long as they have access to an exclusive book about God. The Bible writers picture God to be so mean that the idea of reading only the nicer stories about him is the best deal that any Christian can really bargain for!
Deuteronomy 17:12-13 (NIV) The man who shows contempt for the judge or for the PRIEST who stands ministering there to the Lord your God MUST BE PUT TO DEATH! You must purge the evil from Israel* (*it is an EVIL worthy of death in the eyes of the Bible God to question anything that ANY of his religious leaders say or do!). ALL THE PEOPLE WILL HEAR AND BE AFRAID, AND WILL NOT BE CONTEMPTUOUS AGAIN* (*Holy Mafia talk!).
Act 5:1-11 (NIV) Peter said to her, “How could you agree to test the SPIRIT OF THE LORD? Look! The feet of the men who buried your husband are at the door and they will carry you out also.” At that moment she fell down at his feet and died. Then the young men came in and, finding her dead, carried her out and buried her beside her husband! GREAT FEAR SEIZED THE WHOLE CHURCH AND ALL WHO HEARD ABOUT THESE EVENTS.
The Mafia is known to give out a few slow bleeding warnings before cutting anybody down, not so God the Holy Ghost! Failure to pay the FULL tithe and offering to the Church treasury can cost the life of some moron Christian. Also, failure to eat the flesh of Jesus and drink his blood without any discernment can kill you too.
1 Corinthians 1:29-30 (KJV) For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh DAMNATION to himself, not discerning THE LORD'S body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and MANY SLEEP* (*have died! That’s Holy Mafia talk! Any Christian getting sick needs to wonder if they are not screwing the Holy Communion.)
Revelation 2:23 (NIV) I* (*Jesus) WILL STRIKE HER CHILDREN DEAD* (*for being in the wrong Church). Then ALL THE CHURCHES WILL KNOW* (*more Mafia talk. Your Church probably doesn’t know because Jesus didn’t start killing any children yet!) that I am he who searches hearts and minds, and I will repay each of you according to your deeds!* (*the bit on “grace” was invented by Saint Paul. Jesus never mentioned any grace.)
Christianity is surviving because hardly any Christian drops dead the very moment they do anything wrong. They get sick and die like anybody else. This fact alone is used to show how LOVING AND FORGIVING IS THE BIBLE GOD! What other proof of the existence of God do the atheists still need?
1 Peter 2:18 (NIV) (Saint Peter the first Pope commands!) Slaves* (*including young boy and girl slaves!), submit yourselves to your masters with all respect* (*let ‘em fondle you anyway they like), NOT ONLY to those who are good and considerate* (*those who know how to fondle to your full enjoyment!), BUT ALSO TO THOSE WHO ARE HARSH.* (*those into some sadistic fetish that really hurts!)
Hebrews 13:17 (KJV) (Saint Paul demands full obedience to the clergy!) OBEY them that have the rule over you and SUBMIT YOURSELVES* (*without any exemption, let ‘em fondle you anyway they like!): for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you!
Based on the Holy Bible the POPE, Clergy and Preachers don’t need to confess to any secular authority having sexually abused anybody. They only respond to the Bible God! Why do you think the discipline in some Private Church Schools and nunneries is so harsh? “Jesus” never made it any easier for anybody to go to Heaven, except for the prostitutes and the tax collectors. They are entering Heaven ahead of the Jews and without any penitence! (Mat 21:31b)
1 Corinthians 6:7 (KJV) Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because YE GO TO LAW one with another* (*Christian vs Christians vs Clergy and Preachers). Why do ye not rather take wrong?* (*yeah, what’s wrong with any fondling?) why do ye not rather SUFFER yourselves to be defrauded?
Saint Paul is ADVISING NOT to go to court against another Christian on any issue, especially against a member of the Clergy or any Preacher! In the old Bible days God’s people would be stoned to death for disobeying the Priest’s orders! In the Bible stories THE PRIESTS ARE ALWAYS OPERATING ABOVE ANY LAW!
The High Priest Aaron was Moses’ brother. Only direct descendants of Aaron were qualified to become High Priests! Aaron committed the most heinous defiance to “God’s Law” against idolatry by creating an IDOL in the image of a GOLDEN CALF announcing to Israel that this idol God took them out of Egypt! ALL ISRAEL (2,000,000+) got NAKED and had a big orgy in celebration and devotion to this idol! Nobody cared that Moses went to talk face to face to God. When Moses returned he hardly reprimanded Aaron for organizing the naked orgy. In the Bible stories the Priests are never punished for anything that they do when they hurt people! In this case Moses ordered the Priesthood to slaughter as many Jews as possible in compensation for their “sinful” naked behavior.
Exodus 32:21 (KJV) And Moses said unto Aaron, What did this people unto thee, that thou hast brought so great a sin upon them?* (*this is as far as the Bible writers would go reprimand ing the Clergy)
Exodus 32:25 (KJV) And when Moses saw that the people were naked; for Aaron had made them naked unto their shame among their enemies* (*It was a bogus excuse since Israel was in the desert by itself and had no enemies):
Exodus 32:27-28 (KJV) And he said unto them* (*to the Priests of Israel), Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour. And the children of Levi* (*ONLY members of Moses’ Levite clan qualify to be Priests in Israel) did according to the word of Moses: and there fell of the people that day ABOUT 3,000 MEN* (*and who knows how many women and children because they were never counted).
After this event the Jews learned to respect the Clergy! Moses was so enraged that in total disregard for the Law of God he dashed against the rocks the tablets with the 10 Commandments that God wrote with his OWN FINGER while Moses was watching. Moses had to go see God again FACE TO FACE to get another set. GOD WAS VERY HAPPY TO COMPLY especially when he saw how Moses slaughtered ABOUT 3,000 MEN OF ISRAEL. He got so excited that he actually asked Moses to step aside for a moment that he was going to exterminate ALL the 2,000,000+ that Moses was “saving” out of Egypt. The “salvation” stories in the Bible are more of a joke than anything else. The person being “saved” needs to do everything right!
Exodus 32:35 (KJV) And the LORD plagued the people, because they made the calf, WHICH AARON MADE* (*was it a “sting” operation?).
Just like Moses and Aaron, the Clergy NEVER has to say I’m sorry. The Bible writers got very excited about killing Jews in practically all their stories that even Hitler wished to compete with God!
The Jews made about the greatest contributions in practically all the areas of our life, but they are also responsible for inventing the religion that is the foundation for the Judeo/Christian/Muslim faith that has brought so many wars, pain and suffering into our world. I am still wondering if there is any karma that we can connect into all this!

It is during the hard times that men really feel the need for God.
Times have been too easy for most of us.
Men think they don't need God, but let's look closer.
Divorce rates, devastating earth quakes, and other national disasters,
oil slicks, global warming, increased drug use, incurable diseases, economic world
collapse, growing crime rates, atomic weapons in the hands of terrorist.
We cannot continue doing the same things and expect different results.
