Recently, a subscriber sent me an email responding to my last article Consciousness VS. Religiousness. In their email, they displayed the exact religious mindset that I was talking about in that article. Check out their comments to me below:
See what I mean? Now let’s break their comments down and analyze them to see whether or not they made any valid points.
In their first sentence, they insinuate that having a relationship tops being religious or conscious. But a relationship with who? My article was about being conscious vs being religious and had nothing to do with having a relationship with anything (outside yourself).
In their second sentence, they state that after I submit to God, then I will know who I truly am. But who is this God? And what gave them the idea that I didn’t know who I was? My article had nothing to do with any of this.
In their third sentence, they confirm who they’re talking about and tell me that I need to ask the holy spirit and it will be revealed to me. But this contradicts their first sentence. Remember, first they said that having a relationship is better than being religious and conscious. But the concept of the Holy spirit comes from the bible, which is man-made and therefore religious.
So the question becomes… why did this person send this message to me? After all, their comments didn’t seem to have anything to do with what I wrote about in my article. If that is the case, then can you guess why they sent this email to me?
I can. They were doing what religious people do best. And that is, trying to convert you to a belief system. A belief system that was plagiarized from our ancestor’s ancient cultures that predated it by thousands of years; and then beaten into us by the ancestors of those who rule the world today. This is why I expressed in my last article that it’s better to be conscious (aware of reality) than religious (believing in mythology) so that we don’t end up perpetuating the same mindset that enslaved us.
The Reader’s Response To Me
Since the reader felt the need to send me this message, I decided to respond back. So I told them that I do NOT believe in the God of the bible. I also said that “All hue-mans are born with the spirit of the Creator. We are all expressions of the Creator. So in essence, we are the Creator expressing itself through us.”
That it is all I said to her so I thought that would be the end of this convo. But they emailed me right back. And once again, it was religious; yet they claimed it wasn’t. Check it out below:
As you can see from the comments above, their original intent was indeed to convert me to a belief system. You see it by the constant promotion of the bible, the holy spirit and the living God. However, they say that God has nothing to do with religion. But their comments reveal otherwise.
For instance, they called God a Him. Well, where does the notion of God being a He/Him come from? The bible (and the Koran) right? And who put the bible together? The Roman Catholic Church in the 4th century, right? And who wrote the writings in the bible? The Greek and Roman scribes who plagiarized ancient African texts before burning them, right?
Therefore, since the formation of the bible came from the creators of Christianity, then it’s impossible to separate God from religion. After all, the term “God” itself is a man-made concept that was invented by Germans who converted to Christianity after migrating to Rome in the 6th century. So the belief in “God” is religious by default.
These are facts that can be looked up and verified. Yet, the lady tells me that I shouldn’t seek truth using logic; that I should instead seek truth from the Holy Spirit. Does this make sense to you?
If the pipes burst under your house, would you use logic or ask the holy spirit to fix it? If you caught a flat tire driving on interstate, would you use logic or ask the holy spirit to change it? If your roof was damaged during a storm, would you use logic or ask the holy spirit to replace it?
You see, in the real world, none of this religiousness gets the job done. Either we have to solve the problem on our own, or get someone who can. Otherwise, it won’t get done.
Now, I’m not saying that there isn’t a spiritual realm which exists that we can access and use to our advantage on earth. But what I am saying is that the concept of the holy spirit is man-made and stems from religion. And just because one believes in it does not make it the truth.
No disrespect to the reader who sent me the email, but I just wanted to give you all a glimpse into the type of messages that I receive from religious folk, trying to convert me to their faith.
I don’t know about you but I think it’s ridiculous to try to convert someone to a biblical belief system and then turn around and say that it has nothing to do with religion. It’s a contradiction at it’s finest.
But I also know how it feels to be so immersed into your beliefs that you’re unable to recognize the contradictions of your faith and your actions, because I was once a religious person myself. So, if anything, I empathize with readers who send me comments like this, and I hope that my (tough love) response encourages you to do some research.
But to each, its own. Everyone has the right to believe in whatever they want to. I just think its important to know the difference between facts and faith. And to choose wisely.
Feel free to share your thoughts about this article. Peace & Love!

Believing in a HIGHER POWER is not about religion or any other man made doctrines.It is a way of life and the old covenant gives you a blue print to follow.You must remember also words are spirit and they dictate the direction your life will follow.Those words will be either truth or lies,right or wrong, good or evil.The GOD(YAH) that i follow teaches me to be just(judge correctly)righteous,merciful,truthful,walk humbly before him and not to be foolish. I don’t equate this with christianity or its teachings of the apostle paul because that is what it is.Christianity is a European religion and it is meant for them.They have created a corrupt image of themselves and given it a false name(jesus).The Christ (words) that i believe in does not look like that and he does not carry that name.We are spiritual beings and are guided by a spirit(words)and the choice is yours in who or what you should follow.

I agree with your first sentence that believing in a higher power isn’t about religion. But everything you said after that is religious-based. The “old covenant” that you mentioned is man-made just like the rest of the bible, and it was plagiarized from other ancient texts and published to establish the hebrew faiths. There are tons of ancient sources available that prove this. However, it is not my goal to convince you of anything. You have the right to believe in the bible and it’s God. And I wish you the best in your journey. Peace & Love brother!
“God” is, because the term itself was invented through religion. Indegenous people across the globe had no concept of the word “God” prior to invention of Christianity and the bible. So to believe in “God” is by default, religous. Howe
Peace brother. I understand the perspective you come from. I know it very well. But
DONALD PANNELL says
what sources are you talking about that proves that the bible is a plagiarization of other ancient writings. The original covenant isn’t about religion. It is about an agreement between YAH and his chosen people and a way to go about life. There was no name given to it. Religion is Christianity, Islam, Judaism, etc. These people were to serve a monotheistic god and not any type of pagan god that most religions follow. Being that Israel was enslaved in EGYPT it is possible that they could have learned of the 42 laws MAAT but the Egyptians were sun worshippers. They worshipped the creation and not the creator. My question to you is what has turned you off from knowing the truth? Not all of us are children of HAM. Have you ever thought about that?

Brother, the bible is not a history book so the covenant never happened. In regards to some resources for you to read, here some links below:

Hope this helps you. Take care!

Mo’ Reese I am confused by the arguments and counter-arguments. I think the main problem is that you both have different definitions of what it means to be “religious”.
Either you guys define (AND AGREE) what you will mean by “religious” or this argument is going no where.
Mo'Reese Madu says
I have no arguments. This post was written to show how the average overly-religious person thinks from the Christian perspective.
