Is Current Religion Based on Belief or Tyranny?

Hey guys,

We all understand the facts and mysteries behind the different religions present in the world today. I have observed most religions have strict policies and rules on how to run its institution on their followers. I believe religion has caused more harm than good these days.

Religion causes us to live under the tyranny of the “should and ought”. Religious rules and regulations steal peace and joy. Why? They rob us of what Jesus died to give us. “We become works oriented, rather than faith oriented.

Religion is filled with rules and regulations one must follow to be part of a certain religious group. Christianity, however, is agreeing to follow the leadership of the Holy Spirit entirely.

Jesus intends Christianity to be simple, but religion and its systems can become very complicated and confusing. For example, Paul talks about how “to live is Christ and to die is gain” (Philippians 1:21).

In Philippians 3:7-9, Paul talks about how everything else in this world is garbage compared to his relationship with Jesus Christ. He knew that nothing else in this world even mattered. God was number one in Paul’s life. I don’t know about you, but that can be a pretty difficult thing to do. It’s so easy to put other things in that number one place in our lives: school, work, family, friends, relationships, anything that we find important. But Paul shows us that when it’s all said and done, the only thing that matters is our relationship with God and that He is number one in our lives.

Lastly, Christianity is not a religion, but a belief.

  1. The only thing we need to follow is this to become more like Christ and less like ourselves. Jesus taught us the greatest commandment which is Love the Lord with all you heart, with all your mind, with all your soul, the second is love your neighbor as yourselves. (Matthew 22:37) Until people especially white (yes I am white) stop judging others because they believe they have the right, no one does by Jesus. They judge all rather it it because of your sin color, because someone maybe chronically ill ( I have a child who is) and of course because they are a part of the LGBTQ community, there are more than two genders and that surely doesn’t surprise God at all I have a child who is missing chromosome so they are nether male or female. American was NEVER a Christian nation we need to treat other the way Jesus would and until that time comes more and more will be turn off of Christianity what a shame.

    1. Thank you for this elaborate comment. Like you stated until everyone starts loving each other. The world will still be a gruesome place to be. I have nothing against the LGBTQ. But when they try to impose this subject on young children in school. I think they have passed their boundaries. It should be taught in school, only in senior classes where matured minds can understand the term. God help us all.

      Thank you for your feedback 😊


      1. They don’t impose any subject on children people they need to understand children do know at a very young age they are different and yes they understand because when someone is born the child even if they are born a male they have too many female chromosomes something goes wrong in the womb. People lie to tell others that they are being taught in school. There are all different types of families and children see that it is okay to be different. We in America just need to understand and not go and judge someone because they are different and even try to kill them.


        1. In America, but in the UK it is impose on schools to teach the subject matter. Everyone are entitled to their choice in life. But imposing on young kids is not going to cut it. Yes most of them are been judged. But let’s remember God created Man and Woman to help and assist each other, not the other way around. Society tends to change a lot of the truth in the Bible and we all okay about it.

          1. Unfortunately that doesn’t work I was married for more than thirty years and my husband has abuse me and trying to kill our daughter He lied from the beginning of our marriage as well as drinking and drugs. Sorry to say that most women have to stay in that type of marriage but for myself I refuse. I was a stay at home mom raising three children one is chronically sick and is in a wheelchair and her father has done more harm I can’t put into words the hatred I have is so strong I have never hated anyone in my life like I do him. It doesn’t matter who people love as long as they live. For myself I will remain single until God calls me home


          2. Am sorry about your story. It would have been worse. But God didn’t allow it to be. There are a lot of people facing serious marital challenges. In the end, the children are the victim. I always advise marriage counselling before marriage. Knowing each other is not enough during courtship, cos marriage is a bigger deal. It takes a lot of patience and heart to remain married. The truth here is that God knows everything that will happen to every one of us. That is why He is the beginning and the end. He has seen it beforehand.

            My sister, it could have been worse. Keep thanking God and see the miracle He will surprise you in your life. My prayer goes to your son for healing and breakthrough. Bless 🙌
