Religion and Greed

Submitted by theshovel

Religion breeds greed in spite of the fact that it pretends it’s doing it all for God. The religious mind thinks it can balance the natural mind and the spiritual mind, but it can’t be done.

Ha ha … yeah, really.laugh

i have used the phrase “diametrically opposed” quite a lot over the years, and am just hoping that i used them correctly.  blush  as in this case concerning the natural mind and the mind of GOD - the Spiritual Mind.    two things at opposite ends never to meet.  i get that.  but we are talking the natural mind and the mind of the Spirit which is the mind of GOD!  i was thinking they are even more radical than diametrically opposed.  they aren't even on the same line!  surprise  lol   one is sourced in death and the other is Sourced in Life.  is that the same thing as diametrically opposed?  i don't know … i am analyzing!  indecision  lol    heart

I would think the phrase diametrically opposed fits good enough. :)

Random Shovelquote: Realize the freedom (view all shovelquotes)

How can you realize the freedom you have in Christ? I say that you will discover it, more times than not, in the midst of the bondage that still seems to hold you down. You see, the power of the gospel is not found merely in the words of its testimony of Jesus’ death and resurrection, it is found in the reality that has been brought about because of who he is and what he has done. That reality is that Christ is in you. He is there, and his life witnesses from within you … despite all the doubts that you think actually come from within you. source
