    We've Evolved Past Needing Faith

    Religion and spirituality are not the same things. Spirituality may bring someone peace of mind.  Religion was created by man as a safety net. It is a manmade concept and it absolutely divides.  Faith is something a slaveholder wants his slaves to have to...

    Been There, Done That

    I spent many years in the ministry as a missionary and teacher, guiding other as I'd been shown until I finally came to the realization what I was teaching had nothing to do with what was in the Bible. It was a long slow painful process but I came to understand religion has...
