Religion was invented

In Response To: The Bible dilemma (Judy Fuller, Belgium)

Organized religion was invented to control people through belief. Religion is a tradition of belief, and is typically a hierarchical system of authority through supposed divine rectitude. The promulgator's goal is to affect the beliefs of the subjects, to various ends. Of course it is critical in discussion to agree on the semantics. Words are no better than their common meanings among participants.

Faith can flourish without religion, and religion can achieve its purpose without faith.
