A Question for Christians on God
Quote:As for the NWO being written about in the bible... The Holy Roman Catholic Church had a stranglehold on the bible for 600 years... It's a flawed and altered document. It was the mainstay of the most oppressive force to control the planet in the last 2000 years.

I used to see it as a means of control as well, but I was wrong.

A power hungry group, especially a political/ruling group like the RCC, could also use food to control people, doesn't make the food bad or controlling.

RCC has definitely used God to control people, but the book itself in particular the NT (I think it should not be together as one stand alone book, but two or more, & yes, the RCC did that) and Jesus are not controlling at all. - An encouragement to be nice, if you want to call that control.
In fact Jesus was anti-religion - he referred to religion as "traditions of men" and the religious as "vipers" and "white-washed tombs"


Of course I have witness plenty of things to give proof, no need to assume here. Maybe one day you will too, or maybe not. Until then there is nothing I can say to get you to see that not only is Jesus not about religion - christian or jew, but he's not about control either.

Unfortunately. there are controlling, violent and stupid idiots attached with all three monotheistic religions, but there are plenty of controlling, violent, stupid secular idiots as well.
In fact I would say the world has way too many idiots in all shapes, sizes, colors and philosophies or lack thereof..

&Alice laughed, &There's no use trying,& she said: &one can't believe impossible things.& &I daresay you haven't had much practice,& said the Queen. &When I was your age I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.&
- Lewis Carroll

&Things are seldom as they seem ... Skim milk masquerades as cream.&
- Gilbert and Sullivan (Pinafore)

At NASA, it really is rocket science, and the decision makers really are rocket scientists.
But a body of research that is getting more and more attention points to the ways that smart people working collectively can be dumber than the sum of their parts. .. Irwin Janis? &Groupthink:& is a mode of thinking that people engage in when they are deeply involved in a cohesive in-group, when the members' striving for unanimity override realistic appraisals ? It is the triumph of concurrence over good sense, and authority over expertise.&
-John Schwartz & Matthew L. Wade
