I’m very NOT interested in religion, just the constant pursuit of that which is right, fair and kind to everyone (in deed that is, nasty thoughts about people at the grocery store are in no way against my secular morals)
So I wonder if religious people ever second-guess their allegiance with man-made institutions like governments, the medical establishment, clubs and other causes.
Is there a religion that doesn’t allow people to join clubs? I mean, it would be a good idea. It sounds biblical when you say
“Thou shalt not profess allegiance to any man or group of men.”
The anarchist in me sympathizes with the counter-culture writings of biblical times that make up the Bible, but the cynic in me disdains the editors and publishers who used the writing to create a different message. Or perhaps that’s the writer in me. I bet that line was in there before it was edited.
Either way, how can a religious person not trust that their bodies are made perfect, a complete representation of that which God intended them to be.
How can a religious person get a flu shot? I’m not judging here, I’m just wondering.
I don’t want either, but it seems to me that behind each phenomena (medical science and religion) are two opposing ideas. One says “Only God can save” and the other says “we will save you.”
There’s really nothing to be saved from. Life is good.
