Relegion isn't somthing to give you hope. In WW2 Stalin was having all the churches burned to the ground. WEll he exlied all the presits bishops and everything esle he destoryed over 90,000 churches. He had only a few thousand more to go. But the very second he saw that German army invade you know what he did? He called up all his presits and bishops and went "you know that whole trying to kill you type deal was just a phase? Wanna come back and do your job? Forgive me
" And he did this because he needed to give his poeple hope.
You can't tell a man about eveolution and how everything is this and this and there are no miracles. YOu have to give him somthing to believe in which makes you believe miracles are possible. Even stalin saw this.
Now Relegion isn't somthing to believe I believe i'm right with Christian relegion some believe other wise I honsetly don't care. I'm no bible pusher i'd never talk to you into going in church because well I don't go either. But relegion isn't somthing to believe somthing to put faithin which gives faith.
My view on brooks wife dieing is that it was her time. If I were to die tomorrow or even now it'd simply be my time, not before, not after. I believe we god wants us to come to him we "die" granted its kinda hard to live without your wife as well. And um yea...
And about those poeple calling them son of god. I remember one time me and my old buddy were playing SC. And he went I"M GOD! And then he just started rumbling on about how powerful he was and stuff and this isn't in the game. And i'm looking at him like ... dude wtf... well he has since been kicked out of the Air Force for unrurely behavior his CO told him to do somthing and literatlly he said I'm GOD YOU CAN'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO. Well he kept it up and after being eveluated by the gov they concluded that he wasn't sane enough to work anymore. Last I heard he was starting up some cult calling himself the walking, living, concerte god... I of course kinda stopped talking to him afterwards. He was a freak...
