Religion


Recently, while reading a novel about a woman in Shakespeare’s time, I came across this statement by one of the characters.  It rings so true for many eras of human history, I feel compelled to share it:

 

“Religion is not only about men’s souls.  It is about who rules us, what laws we obey, how and why we are punished, and by whom.”

One thought on “Religion

  1. The type of religion that your quote describes seems to have more to do with fear, submission to power and slavery than with “love, peace and a sound mind” as Paul said to timothy.
