How Religion Uses Our Subconscious to Enslave Us

"Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. They don't toil, neither do they spin. Two verses earlier at Matthew 6:26 Jesus told his followers not to worry about food, because even the lowly birds are provided for by God."

The difference is that lowly birds and lilies are not expected to grovel incessantly to an almighty God, or thrown into hell for all of eternity for not doing so. 

Have you ever wondered, if God is real and his love is so powerful and "true," why does religion require people to obsess over it so much? Why must people constantly read their Bible and go to church and think and learn and spend as much time and energy on God God God, lest they go to hell? 

Maybe it's because all of this is intended to keep the person's subconscious so preoccupied, that it never starts offering the patient (since we are all sick with sin) ideas that may suggest that it's all an elaborate ruse, designed to protect them from hell by charlatans who are mostly interested in emptying your pockets. 

And through the constant reinforcement of an idea (that if you think about it makes almost no sense at all) religion tries to only reinforce the emotional addiction of a person to their own sense of shame, so they will never notice that they are incapable of ever considering that their "beliefs" are the greatest evil Satan has ever created.
