    I don’t remember reading where Jesus is the as cruel as the Republican Party. Their values are 180° opposite of each other.

    Christianity is for people looking for meaning in their life.

    All religions are to some degree or another.

    The questions where did we come from and why are we here is an artifact of intelligence.

    But it's not intelligent to stop your choice on an invisible being that nobody has ever seen, and without real, direct, empirical proof. That's why as society evolves and gets smarter, people are leaving religion.

    .
    christianity is a political entrapment disguised as a religion with pretentious affiliation with the 1st century. a betrayal for those in need who unwittingly become entrapped by the 4th century bible similar to the encounter in the garden of Eden.

    Why not?

    They are valid questions and there are only two possible options. Either the material world was created by spirit or it wasn’t.

    You keep saying that people are leaving religion but they aren’t abandoning their spirituality. Even Darwin agrees that belief in a higher power offers a functional advantage. Otherwise, we would have all become materialist long ago.

    As to your contention that there is no proof of God’s existence, the evidence is literally all around and in you. The physical laws of nature, biological laws of nature and the moral laws of nature all point to intelligence existing before the material world.

    "Either the material world was created by spirit or it wasn’t. " You assume that these are the only 2 choices, and by spirit you mean invisible superbeing in another dimension, for which there is zero proof.
