Organized Religion Quotes (64 quotes)
George Carlin --- Religion is Bullshit
Some people object to attending a structured church. They believe Christianity should be should be an individual matter and that too much organization ruins it. While no one would argue against the value of making Christianity personal, it might be helpful to consider the alternative of organized religion — unorganized religion! Did the early Christians disdain organized religion as much as people do today? Think about God in the Bible. In every case where there was chaos, He moved to bring order.
Heard that? Last week. The word is our Jewish and Muslim friends partake and are adding a few bricks to the wall! Is there a point? Most folks want to have faith, but too few major in religion.
I'd like to begin this article by first clarifying I believe God. I believe Jesus was sent to die on the cross for our sins. I also believe in The Bible and it's teachings. I do not however believe in organized Christianity. I grew up attending a Baptist church and I enjoyed it. I would sit in Sunday school and listen to the teacher tell stories of Jesus, Mary, Moses, and Noah then I went to service and watched as the pastor preached with such passion.

Agnosticism is the view that the existence of God , of the divine or the supernatural is unknown or unknowable. The English biologist Thomas Henry Huxley coined the word agnostic in , and said "It simply means that a man shall not say he knows or believes that which he has no scientific grounds for professing to know or believe. Agnosticism is the doctrine or tenet of agnostics with regard to the existence of anything beyond and behind material phenomena or to knowledge of a First Cause or God,  and is not a religion. Agnosticism is of the essence of science, whether ancient or modern. It simply means that a man shall not say he knows or believes that which he has no scientific grounds for professing to know or believe. Consequently, agnosticism puts aside not only the greater part of popular theology, but also the greater part of anti-theology.
Let me start by making my premise clear: Believing in God doesn't mean I believe in religion , and believing in Jesus doesn't mean I believe in the religion of Christianity. While I accept I'll often be lumped into these groups because I believe in God and Jesus, I know that I myself don't subscribe to any organized religion. I have in the past, and I learned my lesson. While some say only one religion leads to God, and others might say all religions lead to God, I would say the opposite: That no religion leads to God. They may talk of God, point to him even, and have some relevant points, but, in my opinion, they do not, and can not, lead fully to God; the various branches and denominations of Christianity are no exception. The very structure religion confines itself within, along with its immovable dogmas, is proof enough that it will always fail to lead anyone to the full reality of our boundless, cosmic-sized God.
