    absolutely true. man created religion to explain that which man couldn't. they didn't know what image to give this fictional being, so they granted it the privilege of imitating us

  • YES! 100%.

    Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. (Romans 1:22-23)

    Well I believe in God. I do believe however, when man puts these emotions on God like pride, judgemental feelings, anger, etc...those are emotions for their own human nature...in other words they do make god in their own image....I had a boyfriend who would tell me if I did not marry him God would not be pleased and I would be a heathen I said "How you know that?" lol I truly believe God is love. I have experienced that and I have experienced divine healing as well. I love nature, i'm humbled to know something higher than myself. I respect all people who believe in God or don't as well.

    Love, Light, and Peace.

    yes that's true the Inspiration was by and from the roman EMPIRE. "now" the holy roman EMPIRE.the Catholic church. the thing i could never understand was why they used the jew the only thing that i can imagine is the fact that they were nomads and out cast hiding in the catacombs.

    I don't know. If so, man must have made god out of his worst traits.

    False. God made man in his image. You do get everything backward.

    True. Religion is a man made thing.

    I've known that for the last 50 years. All the facts lead to it.

    I think it delusional to say man made God.

    The tail wagging the dog...

    We have just begun to explore God's creation.

    No man could have called the cosmos into being.
