Religion is a double-edged sword.StephenOABC
I can agree with that. I guess it would in order to elaborate.TruthSeeker
For some, religion
helps bring families together
help peoples be free of there stressors
helps people get off of drugs, start over and become better people.
For others, not so much.StephenOABC
Yesterday, at church, the sermon was on "The Elephant in the Room." The pastor was explaining how an unspoken condition can bring down a family:
someone is ill but will not go to the doctor
someone has ego problems but will not seek self-help
someone is depressed but insists on pretending the depression is invisiblehttp://www.hpumc.org/
is the website. You'll see that you can listen to or watch past sermons, if you'd like.
This is gentle life coaching--a good thing.TruthSeeker:
Religion can [also]cause despair and death. Many people get ridiculed, murdered, beaten, among other things because of a religious hate of a person.
What are your thoughts on the subject?StephenOABC
I post in the Spirituality section often, so you can see my past thoughts. You can even visit my profile which shows I've given religion some thought.
