Ever since Nicea Christianity has become a haven for the power hungry and the morbid. Augustine, Ireneus et consortes did their best to manufacture the concept of sin which in a way was a brilliant ploy to exert social-spiritual dominance over the flock. Jesus' real message became diluted and almost disappeared....
... reading what some of these true believers have to say is horrifying, as is listening to Xian talk radio. I sometimes turn on a station purely to feast on delusion. In a way, obsession with sin/hell is *living* in a hell on Earth. Purity of the soul, on the other hand, is sheer happiness. It is loving your fellow man. It means seeing the sadness, the density, the ignorance of the hell-peddlers.It is what Jesus of Nazareth left with us.
