You mean how Christianity threatens it’s followers with the fear of hell?
Sure. If people didn’t have anything to fear or an idea to be rewarded for their faith & worship from a deity. They probably wouldn’t bother with it. These things are a lure for a religion to get a hold over people.
I thought those words were familiar , I’ve been a huge RUSH fan for over 40 years. RIP Neal.
Here’s one of my favorites, I even have it on the back of a t-shirt,
A pair of working hands can accomplish more than a thousand pairs clasped in prayer.
Needless to say, my wife hates that shirt.
Theism in General. christianity to me is just a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy.
Theism in my view is a doctrine of dominance, filled with supernatural claims and other oppressive ways of insulting the intelligence of most rational humans… humans not affected by theism and its fictional tales of fear.
I hold that some opinion. Many of the basic stories in the bible were plagiarized/stolen from other cultures and religions. The creation myth, snakes and the fall of man, halo, virgin birth, self-sacrifice of a god for humanity, it is a long list.
