7 Great Lies of Organized Religion

Dark History of the Church:

How Genuine Spirituality Gave Way to Rigid Dogma

- and the Fine Line that Separates the Two

Spirituality can be the most empowering, most liberating, most life-giving force in all the world.

Or it can be a tool for greed, manipulation and control.

What is it that makes the difference?

  • Some religious leaders seem to tell us that we're not smart enough or good enough to discover God on our own. Who says?
  • If God is good and perfect, why is there so much evil and suffering in the world? 
  • How can anyone rely on the Bible for answers, if it's just a loose translation of ancient myths anyway?
  • How can we trust religion if it has advocated slavery and the subjugation of women throughout history? 

     In Seven Great Lies of Organized Religion I discuss key milestones in church history, dissect the most common lies, and illuminate the fault line that separates genuine spirituality from empty religious dogma.
