People and Religion

Human nature is a strange thing. We begin life as godless sinners asserting our independence and resisting authority.  But when we “get religion,” we become obsessed with authority and control, creating endless laws and regulations to heap upon the relatively few that we get from God (from the Christian perspective, anyway).   Religiously, we go from abstinence to gluttony.  Ironically, history shows that the more religious people get, the less godly they become.
