Thoughts and reflections 6

Something I notice more and more is the lack of people thinking for themselves in religion.
Maybe it is just me but seems like that people don’t want to learn lessons and become a better person from their faith they just want to avoid something, be it punishment for not believing or score from parents or community for being different and not believing the same as everyone else.

This creates an astrosphere where one is encouraged not to think and develop their own ideas and beliefs about their religions and gods and just to fall in line and believe what everyone else does. And that is not a good thing.

Instead of people learning kindness, compassion, charity, and staying strong and fighting for their beliefs, a lot of Christians I know just take what ever they are told and hear and then turn against what they perceive is a threat to their beliefs.

And Wiccan and pagans are no better, instead of learning of kindness, mercy, self reliance, fighting for what you believe in, tolerance, and living in sync with the world, they tend to learn about magic and how it can fix all of you problems and sometimes a brand of passive aggressive or sometimes open hate for Christianity, or sometimes they swallow their high priest or priestess’s words without really thinking about the WHY of them, or you know are some nut, or confused teen that think that are half fairy and have a blood line that lets them work some kind of special magic ( don’t get me started on that).

If more people would stop, read, and then think about their religion, form their own conclusions and learn their own lessons, with perhaps help from who ever their religious leaders are the world might be a little bit better for it. Because I don’t pretend to know what any deity wants, but if I was a deity I would want followers who could think for them selves and choose to follow me and what I teach instead of mindless automatons that believed because they had little or no other choice.

  1. Oh my goodness, I couldn’t agree with your words more! I also wrote a blog where I encouirage people to form their own conclusions, and I pretty much start every blog coming from my own perspective with a disclaimer that says “Question Everything”. Id reblog this to death if I could!

  2. Reblogged this on Myrna D's Mini Circle 🙂 and commented:
    Very valid points. Nuff said.
