The Top Five Harsh Truths You Must Know About Organized Religion

‘Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.’ -Seneca

An organized religion is any religion with formally established beliefs and practices. Although organized religion is helpful, there are many harsh truths you must know about it.

Here are some of them.

1.Organized Religion is man-made

All organized religions were founded on the ideas of men who achieved higher states of consciousness. For instance, Christianity was founded on the ideas of Jesus, while Buddhism was founded on the ideas of Siddhartha Gautama, mainly known as Buddha.

2.Organized Religion is a Bully

Religion demands us to believe everything people such as Jesus, Mohammad, or Abraham taught without questioning. It wants us to blindly accept everything the Bible, Quran, and other ‘Sacred Books’ teach without questioning their validity. In the medieval age, religious leaders murdered or forced into exile the individuals who doubted the teachings of these ‘Sacred Books.’

3.The Ancient Elite Used Religion to Control the Masses

The ancient ruling classes informed people that they were God-chosen, and therefore, it was blasphemous to disrespect them. For this reason, it became easy for them to control people because the masses feared God, and they didn’t want to disrespect ‘him’ and end up in hell. Besides this, the ancient ruling classes used organized religion to bring like-minded people together and control them.

4.Organized Religion emanated from Pagan Religions

Stories almost similar to the miraculous birth of Jesus are found in ancient Pagan religions. As well, the story of Noah is present in the Sumerian religion, which was founded thousands of years before Christianity. Besides, many scholars have discovered that Pre-Islamic Arabians – who were Pagans – used the word ‘Allah’ to refer to their god.

5.Organized Religion has Caused Many Wars

In 1096 to 1291, several religious wars between Muslims and Christians occurred because both Muslims and Christians wanted to control particular holy sites. As well, during the introduction of Buddhism in the Japanese Kingdom in 552, military conflicts occurred after people resisted the spread of Buddhism. On top of that, many ancient Kings used the phrases, ‘Holy War’ and ‘Just War’ to encourage people to fight against enemy-kingdoms.

6.Religion has failed us

The main purpose of religion is to enable its followers to attain oneness with Infinite Intelligence. Organized religions have thus failed us because our religious leaders seldom teach us about attaining oneness with the Creator. Instead, they focus on teaching about sin and paradise.

Furthermore, organized religion has failed us because there are high levels of crime, hate, violence, and many other unrighteous behaviors despite the increase in the number of modern religious organizations.

THE END

PEACE BE WITH YOU
