Faith is the problem.
Blind faith is dangerous. Faith centered around experiential knowledge is not. Faith comes by experiential knowledge, or as the Greek calls Gnosis, used many times in the New testament. Blind faith is the opposite of that. faith means to know something and act upon what you know. This is not what is taught in most churches, which teaches blind faith. Also, if you have to try your hardest to keep faith, you are operating in blind faith. Blind faith is emotional, and goes by what it feels instead of what it knows (Gnosis).
If everything worked out the way God sees it then the earth would be a perfect place. However there is an aspect that even God cannot go against, free will of humans. If he could, then he would have wiped us out a millinia ago and started over. -
I come from a religious background and had to take a lot of what I had learned and throw it out the window, and start a journey on my own. I have read the bible numerous times, and can clearly see that much of what I was taught is not in there, and what was in there, was twisted to fit a specific churches or persons dogma. Since these times, I have not only learned what the bible says, but the history behind it, the personality of the people of those times. I have learned alternative philosophy, science,other religions and peoples, especially those of the East, which despises blind faith. So when I say "faith is the problem" I speak of blind faith and not faith that knows by experience. This is the kind of faith that makes it easy to operate in. A small example: I have boiled water at a specific temperature, and now I know, that everytime I place a pot of water on the stove and raise it to that specific temperature, it will boil. This is experiential faith. I believe so strongly that water will boil at that temperature every time, that I do not even question whether it will or not.
