interesting conversation.

i had an interesting conversation with a friend recently about the role of spiritual leadership within the church and society in general.

it was my position that many church leaders are aware of the true nature of spiritual enlightenment and that they conciously choose to limit thier congregation`s access to the knowledge.

my friend disagreed.

his position is that the church is a bureaucracy and that the officers and executive are as spiritually bancrupt and the majority of those whose who sit in front of them on sunday.

it is still my position that there are those in the church who have some personal enlightenment but i realise, as my friend pointed out, that one cannot spout doctrine and dogma for a lifetime and be in any way enlightened.

point taken.

Give me a break, they are all brainwashed and in it only for the money. Fuck churches.

You don't know anything about being spiritual so I suggest that you just shut the fuck up.

Hell you know damn little about psychology being as you were taught it in a center of 'higher learning'.

Not to offend you my friend, but you are a fucking idiot. Hugs.

i feel the same way about churches.

mechanisms of social control.

guilty, anxious, depressed people do what they`re told 99 times out of 100.

occasionally one goes off and shoot a bunch of people though.

price we pay for society.
