FK – I once said to a ‘believer’: “The bible says there was a war in heaven. That means there could be a war in heaven again.”
He agreed with me.
All these ideas of perfection amount to so much beating around the bush. What humans have always searched for is false security, a guarantee of their basic needs in a history of want. Religion was also handy for keeping the slaves working: “Be a good servant, you’ll have paradise in the next life,” or “You’re gonna get beamed up(raptured) soon so you don’t have to actually do anything about all the corruption in our govt. or the world,” and on and on.
