The delusion that a “god” has directed you to do something

Imagine how comforting it would be to know – KNOW – that the all powerful creator of the universe had taken time out of his hectic schedule to speak directly to you. He has commanded you to do something.

Or imagine that you have a “personal relationship” with the all powerful creator of the universe. You can telepathically ask questions, and your “god” will give you answers, piped right into your brain.

Wouldn’t that be cool?

It would be completely, utterly, insanely delusional, but it WOULD be cool.

That is why religious people love religion. And the more devoted the follower, the stronger the delusion:

Why The Right Needs Religion

Religion circumvents the risk of accountability for the decisions we make. To be called by God to do something is both much more aggrandizing as well as much safer. If things don’t go well, it was His idea not yours, right?

To be called by God to run for office or advised through the secret communication of prayer, as it seems is the case with most conservative politicians these days, provides an immediate trump card of authority to bolster an individual’s ambition. It preordains any loss or rejection as either the will of God, or the work of his evil arch nemesis. The fragile ego of the individual remains intact and unblemished.

This only works if there are millions of equally insane, equally delusional people who let you get away with such moronic behavior.

    People who think Christianity is fake are fake. IF THEY HAVE EVER ACTUALLY READ THE BIBLE, they would realize that God cannot be scientifically explained and that God doesn’t want us to know everything. It’s all for his plan, we have to trust him and have faith in him. Just wit till im standing there in heaven and you are burning in hell and im saying ‘i told ya so!’
