I cannot accept the idea that God gave us a mind without the freedom and responsibility to use it. Organized religion has demonstrated through the ages that it is opposed to independent thought. The man-made and man-managed religions only allow the freedom to follow tradition. Even religious movements established upon the principles of religious freedom soon established rules to limit or completely destroy independent thought.
Religious tradition limits free expression of ideas. To receive the blessing of the church – and salvation itself – we must stay within the box. Thinking outside the box is prohibited. This religious box – centered on the church building – defines practically all of modern day Christianity. Spiritual growth is stifled in such an atmosphere.
