I ask you to think hard about those questions. Which one is worse and why?
Taking your steak rare in a restaurant.
Taking a bite out of a cow that just died in the field.
Killing someone yourself.
Allowing people to invade a country and kill families.
Believing that gnomes listen to your thoughts and have the power to help your life.
Believing that angels listen to your thoughts and have the power to help your life.
Not giving money to help starving people in Africa because you think money will not get there
Not giving money to the homeless guy down the street because you think he’ll drink it anyway
Believing that when you die, you’ll go to on a cloud to see your loved ones for eternity (which is the description given in movies and painting).
Believing that when you die, you’ll go in a giant cube with streets paved in gold, guarded by giant creatures full of eyes, for eternity (which is the version of heaven actually described in the Bible).
