as my great teacher once said : most people go to the church the goes to ,simply because they parent did and for no other reason. most people who are Democrat. They democrat because they parent are. most people are Republican, because they parent are, and if you ask them what is Republican, They couldn’t tell you in 100 million year they don't know , they vote that way because it's comfortable for them, because that what they grow-up with. Most of us do what we do because we grow-up in it . and you already determine that they tell you the truth no matter what. you don’t investigate. you have accepted blindly, and that the most dangerous thing can happen to anybody the moment that you say this guy I like him I like what he say he is right and anyone who say different from him is wrong. You have just destroy yourself because the truth is. he is human being, I'm a human being, obama is human being, because when you mistake people for the truth or mistake people for Religion or mistake people for government you making a big mistake because people for the most part are a big mistake .we are subject to temptation we are subject to our own desire. Next time you see someone from other party , you know why he is that way. Tell me first thing that's come to your mind right now.

This is the greatest difficulty that most of the people have lost their wits. They follow others without making the use of brain. Thanks.

"Honor your father & mother, and it will be well with you upon the Earth." We start out following like sheep (following our parents, our teachers, our brothers & sisters, our friends, our favorite celebrities). And sheep--one of my Pastors (one who actually worked with actual sheep) tells me--are "stupid"---if they're following another sheep that walks off a cliff, they'll walk right off too (even though they SEE the first sheep breaking as it falls). God trusts us shepherds NOT to guide his flock off the cliff, and we sheep KNOW he trusts us so much (see there? I am both a sheep & a shepherd ... confusing, yes?); so we know that WE can trust ... us ... as well Like a soldier marching rank-&-file with the army; he marches as ordered, regardless of how it LOOKS like he should march!

You are very wise man, your response is an articule by it self but threre is a difference between following by choise and forced to fellow and following the truth ,even the truth. is it pure truth or just what we want to be.

"So you're a king?" "It's you that say I am. I look for truth, but find that I get damned!" "But what is truth? Is truth unchanging law? We both have truths; Are mine the same as yours?" (Pontius Pilate to Jesus, Jesus' reply & Pilate's response at the "Trial Before Pilate" lyrics by Tim Rice in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Jesus Christ Superstar ... the length of time it took me to 'build' that link (below), makes me wish AdFly were paying by-the-hour ) 'Truth' is what you believe. If you have a "need for proof" built up in your mind as a barrier between 'a piece of information' & 'its truth,' then YOU (no one else) need to find that proof. That's what science is: the hypothesis (prediction of what will happen if a 'piece of information' is true or -if it is false), and the experiment (the action that proves-or-disproves the hypothesis).

It takes a certain amount of self-dicipline to resist the "tide" of popular opinion. That is especially true if that opinion is promoted as a "doctrine" or "truth". Many examples of such misconceptions come to mind, so I would be hard pressed to cite a particular example and still remain on topic. I can only reccommend that if one is truly determined to find out the truth of a matter, that they seek out multiple sources-both from pro- and con- sides of any argument. I started out as a child attending a baptist church. I didn't find religion there, but I did get enough information to find out how to start a relationship with God. Even not knowing if He exsists, anyone can try this-ask Him "If you are real, reveal Yourself to me". Of course, a genuine desire to know the truth will necessitate ones' willingness to accept that truth when it is "clear as day" in its' presentation to that person. What I mean is, don't ask God to show you He is real, and then go right on about the task of discounting every evidence He brings you by way of response. Overwhelming evidence is just that-overwhelming! Remember-if what the christians say is true, then God made everyone, so it's reasonable to believe that He knows how to approach you on a one-on-one level that you can identify with. The first thing to do when seeking the truth is to believe it actually exists! Hope that this was helpful.
