Few people are truly religious

The truly religious person is not someone who goes to church or reads a book or follows rules, a truly religious person is someone who has a personal relationship with their god.

Whichever religion you follow, any book that claims to be "the word of god" is in fact not, those are books that were written by mankind. They were written by admittedly great men who ruled and found that they needed a way to control the idiotic masses and so they gathered a bunch of wisdom and then paired that with common sense and logic and a blue print for the society they lived in and wrote a book, with some divinity and then claimed it was the word of god.
God doesn't care if you eat shellfish, but when a good portion of the population is allergic to shrimp but the sea bugs are too delicious, it's a lot easier to simply say it's a sin that will be punished by an omniscient god rather than any human law enforcer. Mixing fabrics is not an actual issue, but it's simpler to have an economy producing one kind of fabric as opposed to various fabrics, many of which are suited to specific climates and not necessarily yours.
And the list goes on. Books are clearly a blue print for a civilization, they also have wisdom and lessons like parables, or generalized stories like the story of Job, etcetera.
Furthermore church and priests are for those who are not truly religious, they are people who are unable to truly connect with god, and so they require routine to replace divine presence. It also creates community and trust and instills said wisdom, lessons and rules from the book.

But any true religious person can pray anywhere and find their god, can make a direct, personal connection with no need for a book or a building or another man.
Failure to understand this is why so many modern day people get religion wrong, they fixate on something that was written thousands of years ago by men, any real god would never write something for the mortal realm which is subject to constant change.

      money is an egregore and in a sense it can have godlike power and in the current world we live in where people essentially worship money (even if they're unaware that they do so) they make the rothschilds one of the most powerful groups as they are the greatest worshippers of the egregore.

    I think the notion that religion was created to control only applies to a select few religions bordering on cults.

    I think religion is a phenomenon resulting from either truth or biology. And when religious organizations do actually exercise some form of authority, it usually is not the founders of said religion but just an authority on it. Authority put there by man not by god

      Well yes, so I suppose I should alter it and say Religious Organizations are not truly religious. Religion doesn't seek to actually control anyone, not even the gods seek that, that being said it is one of the most effective tools for control because all beings with consciousness know on a subconscious level that there is something divine. All the church goers know divinity is real even if they cannot connect to it personally.

      >But any true religious person can pray anywhere and find their god, can make a direct, personal connection with no need for a book or a building or another man.

      What if I actually like religious buildings? What if I don't want to think of spiritual matters at my own place because a house to me is just for eating, drinking and chilling?

      The buildings themselves are fine, many were done in glory to the highest by devout workers, but you by no means must go to them to connect with the divine and you do not have to treat them as "sacred spaces" although to profane them purposefully, or at least any images of the divine on the inside, would be reprehensible because they were created in worship and can inadvertently cause offense.
      I'm a huge fan of churches I'll admit and would definitely build a home in the style of a cathedral.

      If you want a special place to do worship, you can make one, it doesn't need to be a church, you could simply make a part of your home, a room or something as an altar to your god.
      Many have found solace in nature and find a nice glade or meadow or rock and treat that as their spiritual space.

    Well, he can do all of that, it's not a problem.
    >a truly religious person is someone who has a personal relationship with their god.
    At least some genuine connection to the "divine".
    >those are books that were written by mankind.
    Well, some old texts were written by angels, but religion is basically a human thing.
    >Furthermore church and priests are for those who are not truly religious
    These things are not necessarily a problem.
    >It also creates community and trust
    What is an important thing.
    >But any true religious person can pray anywhere and find their god
    True.
    >can make a direct, personal connection
    Well, possible but not so easy.
    >any real god would never write something for the mortal realm
    There is actually no such god. But there are angels, and they write and give spiritual teachings to the humans. It helps to have some informations about the cosmos.

    >Another Christian realizes their Bible doesn't make sense
    My personal connection to God had Him direct me to a better book to read.
    Sad that your relationship doesn't include God trusting you with reading recommendations.

    OP is being silly and doesn't understand that the "book" is necessary to align you with what is necessary to develop and maintain that relationship.
