People attend churches, mosques, temples, and so forth in expectation they will learn about God but that is not the case. They are pumped up with sermons they fill them with hope and false dreams. They are impressed with pictures of a heavenly kingdom and their part in it if they obey the religious leaders. They are entertained with drama and singing and they meet people of similar minds and make friends.
Religion is about social life and the society in which they live. Never have I heard a minister, priest, or other speak of the Spirit of the Universe and the little voice within. Never have I satisfied that what I learned through the sermon was filling me with spirituality. What it did was pose questions that in the end can not be answered except by the Spirit.
One looks at the men leading services in religious places with skepticism and wondering. Are they pedophiles, do they gamble, are they alcoholics? Their faces do not reflect the peace they should be experiencing if they truly are working for God. It's in the Old Testament where the answers are found and not many preach from that part of the bible, except for paths that support them.
"Her practices have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the hole and the profane, yet they have shewed difference between the unclean and the clean … And her prophecies have daubed them with untempered morter , Seeing vanity, and divining lies to the, Saing, Thus saith the Lord God, when God hath not spoken. " Ezekiel 22: 26,28
Surely this is how God assesses the ministers of religion. They are not chosen to speak for God but rather they enter their profession on a whim that they will earn a place for themselves in heaven. They do not enjoy the fruits of the Spirit but pretend to do so.
"Many pastures have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant potion a desolate wilderness." Jeremiah 12;
God's vineyard is the children of Israel who are born with a link to the Spirit. They are hammered because they have power with the Spirit so they are trodden down. If they speak up they are ridiculed, ostracised, tagged with unfavourable names, and they are silenced by the power of the establishment.
" Therefore, behold I am against the prophets, saith God, that steal my words every one from his neighbor. Behold I am against the prophets … that use their tongues and say, He saith. Behold I am against them that prophesy false Dreams … and do tell them, and do cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not … " Jeremiah 23: 30-32
The lies include heaven and hell and dreams of a resurrection whereas my reincarnation proves that such are lies because they do not exist.
