Something cowards try and avoid because it often seems too much of a burden.
Religion is the systematic approach to participation in the "anti-fall".
It's our means of curing a world laced with death.
Man up and stop complaining about past evils committed under the umbrella of religion. I'm sick of cheap excuses to abandon it. Good religion is the only thing that can unwind the misery of bad religion.
And drop the 'religion is a delusion/lie' mantra. One could flinch at the thought of such frivolous naivety. Dim, inarticulate notions of truth and reality quail before the stark actuality that religion burns with.
Religion is the lifeblood that continues to carry oxygen to this broken world. But this blood also carries a toxin called human depravity.
You don't get the venom out of a man's bloodstream by cutting out his heart; you get it out by giving him the antidote.
Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever.
