KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! IGNORANCE, GREED AND HATE ARE THE ENEMIES OF THE “SOUL” SO WHY ARE THESE THREE THINGS SO PROMINENT IN CHRISTIANITY?
Some religions promote ignorance because it prevents people from questioning and therefore upsetting the power structure. Greed is a normal human tendency, and some religious people use their beliefs as an excuse for indulging this vice (because they, as good people, “deserve” good things). Hate can be used to make one group feel morally superior to another.
I might not believe that Jesus was magic, but (at least in the book) he sure wouldn’t have put up with this kind of behavior.
