What is the personal transformation or change in awareness that occurs in the Abrahamic adherents' m
Debate Rounds (3)
I would contest that the Abrahamic religious mind act as a barrier to personal
transformation and actively prevents it.
For those who wish to contribute can you please tell me in detail what personal
changes in your mindset or awareness that have occurred as a result of religious
Adherents learn not to question authority.
They learn to obey and transform from healthy human beings with an appetite for skepticism into slaves, prone to hostility to those who even dare question their motives or outlook.
Where you are wrong, however, is that when someone is extremely obedient and submissive, they are very malleable and morphable at the hands of whatever religious authorities they respect.
I was thinking more along the lines of a personal transformation into an enlightenment process.
Don't think Religious people are transforming anytime soon.
They still sin, but get blessed so become blessed sinners and use circumstances to continue the game.
The religion is designed to promote status quo in the adherent until death.
Those that build a cage that their thinking must lie within are unlikely to ever escape it.
If there is any personal transformation what is it... beats me?
You did not state this in R1 so I disregard it.
"I don't think religious people will be transforming anytime soon"
"They still sin and use circumstances to continue the game"
If they are sinning, they are not adherents of the religion.
"Religion is designed to promote status quo"
Many religious individuals do not believe in status quo and conformity until they are religious, this is an example of the transformation that they undergo.
"Those that build a cage that their thinking must lie within are unlikely to ever escape it"
It is not a cage, but rather blinkers, they actually move faster in a straight line than the non-religious do in a zig-zaggy one. This is because they are far more focused than them and willing to sacrifice their freedom in order to get into heaven, or the equivalent for thier religion, by any means necessary.
"If there is any personal transformation what is it?"
Thanks for admitting that you are not capable of debating this.
