Why does God allow suffering? What is the purpose of life? Why am I here? Is there a God at all? Where is God? The answers to all of life's questions are here...Yes, here!
The title tells of the content: the contrast between what is defined as "Religion", as opposed to what is defined as "God": They are not synonymous! Humans have succeeded at prostituting God (or god, or any "supernatural power") since the cognition of said concept. This book is the "Revelation", the truth, and you will see it with your open eyes! Believing in God (as Creator/Designer of the cosmos), does not equate to ignorance, or to elevating mere mortals to god-status! But this is so, in Religion! This is why the intelligent cannot participate (for long) within organized religion, and why they seek the answers to our origin, from within the mechanics of the Creation. But then, this is not sin; this is knowledge, which leads to wisdom. God teaches us that humans were created from the components of this biosphere (“from the dust of the Earth”), it is no wonder, therefore, that we share similarities with all other life also created from these same limited elements. This fact, however, does not conclude any further relationship!
Programmed by Clichés, Cloned with Progress:
It was by design, by the Designer, to come onto Earth in corporeal form, to put to rest once and for all, the character, nature, purpose and identity, of God! Notwithstanding: Humans will prostitute other humans, and God, for all time (past, present, future). The reason is simple…they are lazy creatures who only care about getting their portion (and another’s as well!) while in this corporeal form. In other words, they do not believe in God, creation, or any other non-corporeal factor of Life! Though Science is clearly revealing the unseen, the supernatural if you will, atheists of all timelines pound at the pulpit of random beginning-less design. It took faith to believe in particle emissions, that is, until humans devised a way of detecting them. But you or I could easily debunk even that Science as faith; we could pound our chests and say that the measuring and interpretation paradigms employed in particle Physics, are erroneous at best; that neutrinos are the mere apparitions of today’s faith sciences. We could be prude little adversaries of “new” Science concepts. But then, we would be no different than the Pope and his Papal drones poking holes in Galileo’s bizarre postulations about the Earth revolving around the sun! What keeps humans from believing any such things is not evidence so much as it is human pride (arrogance). It literally took the death of all humans then, who simply could not accept the Earth-circling-the-sun postulation, which is no longer a “faith”, but a standardized fact! Other such facts may await the death of those who refuse to believe today! Indeed, God made sure to provide just enough evidence, and just enough doubt, to entangle both groups: the one grows; the other stagnates in atrophy! The only true sin, therefore, is human pride, a pride that holds humans in an unsettling ignorance that causes them to isolate, to segregate, to divide, to hoard, and to plunder in the hopes that their group will gain more than “those others”: nation, race, gender, culture, or religion: The Sin of Religion!
