You wrote,"Religion is vile, and while you can never truly get rid of religion, you can, through education, diminish its following until the amount of people left practicing it aren't even noticed. Remove the hold that religion has on the world, and you remove one of the biggest dividers of the populace."

I agree with you completely. So what does this have to do with Christianity? Yes, Christianity has been marred by divisions and man-made rules and regulations, true, but True Christianity is NOT religion, it is a relationship. When a person gives their life to Christ, they are finally free from the old-way of living. What we have seen through history is some people taking freedom through Christianity and temporarily turning it into slavery. This is the old-way; this is self-serving and not what Jesus died for. Jesus Christ came as a thief to steal back what was stolen from His father-us. We had become slaves to a selfish master-Satan. Religion is part of the old-law. Some of it is not, it is simply man-made though, but it is still selfish. When Jesus died, He took back the keys to death, as the Bible puts it. One of the signs of a true, mature Christian is selflessness. The knowledge that The Holy Spirit is here, on earth, alive and well causes such a sense of faith, you know God will work "it" out whatever the trouble is. He is here to help all of us who believe in Christ. The reason we fight to keep our God-given rights in this country is we want to be able to freely worship our God. This need is hundreds of years old. We want to protect our children from the enemy, which is not flesh and blood, but unseen powers and principalities. We know that although Jesus fulfilled the law, He did not intend to turn us all into 10 commandment breakers. Those commandments bless us. A person who follows them has a better life. We want to have a good, abundant life. I mean, after all Danny, do you obey stop signs? Well, you start cheating on your spouse and what happens? I'm sure you don't think wisdom is a divisor of society!
