Misappropriation

What most people never realize is that all the energy, time, love, compassion and praise going to God, is only accomplished by cheating humanity of those gifts that you have to give. All your endless natural resources that flow from you are misappropriated to god to the detriment of man.

God doesn't need your love, he is a god, he doesn't need your charity nor your praise, I do. I have the same to give in return, I pay it forward everyday.

If each time you praised god you instead praised your child or praised your employee or your friend, then so much more positive energy would visit so many more people's lives.

God doesn't need your special gifts, they only have value and potency when applied to your fellow humans.

Churches, being separatists by nature only serve to divide any community, no matter how small. The evidence of that is in our smallest communities, our families. How many families have been divided based on religious belief? How many gay children have non existent relationships with one or both of their parents? How many mature women now were ejected from their homes for getting pregnant in the fifties, sixties and seventies?

Religion provides an encyclopedic list of reasons to persecute or divide your self from any other person, especially those with whom you have the most contact; family, friends and neighborhoods as well as whole nations.

Religion allows you to be indifferent to the pain and struggle of others who have a different belief system. Religion teaches you to accept inhumanity in the name of divinity.

If every church were a homeless shelter, no one would have to sleep in the streets. If the communities resources that were put into big beautiful, vain churches were put into the communities in which they take all that money from, parks could be built, schools improved and dramatic impacts could be made that effect the our next generation of people as they grow.

Civilization was made possible by the success of the tribe which was made possible by the village which is made possible by the family. In each of these groups all members worked together for the common good of all its members and all members were cared for.

Your needs and mine are met if we see to each others' needs. This is how it has always worked. If you are busy with God's needs, then you have to be concerned as well for your own needs and I have to concern myself with mine. God does not feed back into the ecology of love, compassion, mercy, charity and good will, only man has demonstrated this capability.

As long as man continues to spend these precious resources, Love, compassion, praise and empathy on God, the fall of man is ensured...
