International House of Prayer leader Tyler Deaton‘s wife was the victim. She was found dead of what was thought to have been a suicide on October 30th. Later a church member confessed he’d killed her by order of her husband Deaton. This to cover up the sex and drugs evenings at the church and special places in Grandview.
More God killings. When will it all end?
We live in a nation, and pretty much a world, where you’re brainwashed from birth to believe in some sort of make believe God. With that brain washing it becomes all too often a reality of life.
” God is good, God is right, this is the way to happiness” and on and on.
Our country it is largely Christian, with a mix and Jews, Muslims and other religions. All believe there is a God who watches over and will protect and save them if they do as the good book says. In most cases the good book is the bible.
But as has been proven by science there are many things written in the bible that are just plain wrong. You could write a book about them and people have. They say man came into being just a handful of thousand years ago. However, the bible was written by people with what would be today a second grade education at best.
People who believed the Earth was flat and the Sun revolved around the Earth. Today they would be considered stupid.
Many millions are killed in the name of God.
The Romans fed Christians to the lions. Hitler put 6 million Jews in gas chambers and Christians burned witches at the stake (there are and were no witches, just people who didn’t do a good enough job of being Christian). Our military slaughtered millions of Indians. Arabs kill Jews and Christians because they aren’t Muslims.
Comedian Jim Jeffries, on the stage at Stanford’s, put it this way: “If Jesus was alive a couple thousand years back, he would have been a man of maybe four feet seven inches, that was the average height back then. But let’s say he was tall at 5 feet. Okay,. I’m six feet three inches and had they nailed me to a cross I just would have stood up, it wouldn’t have killed me.”
Jeffries continued, “There are more than 120,000 different religions that we know of that have existed. So you folks are mostly Christian right? Lucky you. You got the right one, huh? You won the lottery.”
Many people hate Jim. Why? Because they know he’s right. We made up religion in the bible, Christianity and God. We did, man. There’s almost no doubt about that today. We made up the Easter Bunny as well.
It all sounded good, God and the bible.
But in the end it seems to have done far more harm than good. Yes there are many great religious people. Men and women who do great things in the name of God. They are great people because they themselves are kind and generous not because of a God or religion.
How many Jim Jones, Waco’s or phony Jimmy Swaggers are needed to figure this out?
The best and most recent proof of the insanity of organized religion has to be the hundreds even thousands of Catholic Priests who RAPED YOUNG BOYS. Let me write that one again. PRIESTS, HIGH RANKING, MAN’S CLOSEST THING TO GOD ON EARTH AND THEY RAPE YOUNG BOYS ALL THE TIME.
When are you holier than thou people gonna face the facts?
Most of you already know but it’s tough to stop being brainwashed. I know. They tried it on me.
I had to go to Saint Annes Church in Prairie Village on Sundays for a bit, as well as Hebrew school. We read the bible in both. I was in third grade when I asked the sister at the Church this question, “Is the bible real, is this suppose to be true?”
She said, “Yes Craig.” And I said, “It can’t be true, sister. Noah built an Ark for his family and animals, even insects, right?” Yes. “All animals?” Yes, she replied. The last thing I remember saying was “That’s not possible, there are too many different kinds of animals to fit on such a boat and the insects would fly off.”
I was called up front and had my arms beaten with her ruler.
SEE, WE TEND TO STRIKE OUT AT NON BELIEVERS DON’T WE?
Where is God when children are raped, tortured and killed. WHERE? Where was God when those men representing him – the ones too many of you bow down too – pulled their pants down and raped little kids. WHERE?
Rabbi, Margolies said it best.
I asked him if there was really a God and he said, “When I was a young man I sure believed there was and as I aged I wasn’t so sure. Today I say this, if you want to find God look at the end of your right arm. There you will find your own hand. God is inside you and all of us. It’s up to you to do good in this world. Don’t look to heaven, look inside yourself. That’s where you will find God and there only.”
I believed him then and I believe him now.
Goodness is inside you. We as humans are as close to any God as there is likely to ever be. We need to do the right things for our own sanity. Not for one of any made up God.
Happy Thanks giving.
