    i don't go to church, but what i find is that certain people go or lead for the right reasons: finding peace in life and a sense of "unity" that starts within and bleeds outside of the self.

    then their are other people that find it uncomfortable to have a real connection within themselves, in which case they seek it outside and rely upon that entity to take the place of what's missing (instead of finding the real substance). after that, they believe everything this entity tells them and they believe it deeply--why wouldn't they? it has now taken the place of something integral to their being and is masked to mimic that of a deeply rooted belief that originated within... almost like brainwashing. this type is evident when they cannot argue their beliefs (the one's that don't rely purely on faith, and i've seen people stress the idea of faith to prove something that is obviously bullshit).

    what's funny though is that while religion gets a very bad rap in modern day society, modern day society (social movements/popular idiocy) is no different than any form of religion. you still get people who, for some reason, hold onto a "deeply held belief" that they cannot argue, and upon bringing this to their attention they either get upset or they accuse you of being "argumentative" (despite the fact they were and will always be ready and willing to fight up until the point at which they run into a wall). they all have an idea that just so happens to correlate to a skewed definition, or false moral pandering (originating without), that doesn't fit any form of structure or coherency, and cannot explain why they believe it in way that makes sense, because when they attempt to do so, they reveal how full of holes the belief itself is.

    of course, that doesn't pertain to everything that originates outside of one's self, as in, it coming from something other than you doesn't immediately invalidate it.

    I like the idea of church. I like the idea of people getting together for a common spiritual reason. But, even aside from all the ugly stuff, the idea realized isn't near as cool, at least not worth getting out of bed for.

    Dude there's loads of things in which the fantasy or dream doesnt measure up to the reality.

    The cup on the right is grape juice, and the cup on the left is wine. Accidentally took the grape juice...never again.

    Is it irreverent to even care?
    I don't mean to pry, but why would you even make the eyes?

    I ate the bread of Jesus, and drank his blood.

    This obviously means we must all become vampiric cannibals. How could anyone miss this??

    I found that homemade soup, created for Lent lunch and old ladies with a soft spot for cheeky kids was a great combination for filling my stomach.

    I did like the architecture and design of the particular church I was taken to, but for my mum's chagrin, she never could get me interested in the actual religious side of the proceedings.

    In her eyes the actual point of church. I disagreed and got free food and an appreciation for old buildings with unusual windows.

    PS: just realised I already mentioned this.
    "An upsidedown wire heart
    Being sucked into a periscope
    Still the mind is dull
    Like you need another excuse"

    … a theory is primarily a form of insight, i.e. a way of looking
    at the world, and not a form of knowledge of how the world is….
    .. all our different ways of thinking are to be considered as
    different ways of looking at the one reality, each with some
    domain in which it is clear and adequate….

    If I would have went to church today I would have learned what my mind revealed as I slowly undressed the hot women in front of me with my mind's eye.
    "i shut the door and in the morning
    it was open
    -the end"

    Olemn slammed his hammer and from the sparks on the metal of his anvil came the spheres of the heavens.

    Sayrah blew life into the spheres and they moved. From her wheel she weaved the names of people in to mystery.

    I learned that sound systems are run on computers. The service started 20 minutes late because the sound wouldn't come out. They had to reboot the server.

    I learned that the new pastor likes red shoes. I kept expecting her to click her heels together and say "there's no place like home".
