Religion Represents Worldview & IdentityReligion determines your overall perspective.
Religion provides definitions for an enormous number of things.
Religion partners with nationality to form a one-two punch of identity - a right jab and left hook concealed behind a piece of cloth called a flag and pieces of paper called a book.
When that identity is marketed as "culture" and/or "tradition," what is nutritionally unfulfilling becomes a sweet thought that is fought over to be kept in logic like the right to be addicted to sugar-coated fried dough. A religious worldview supplemented by a national identity determines the nature of all personal relationships.
Puzzled While Believing Clarity Is The Glass DarklyIn the history of Creation, spirituality of the higher-self came first, then the religion of the lower-self * came second (last).
Since we know these are the days of the lower-self, we also know religion is part of what allows the lower-self to have power. We know we are in the days of the lower-self by the prevalence of Destroyer logic, Deceiver logic and Dark Age logic that has created widespread damage and reduced most things to their lowest use - this includes human creative genetic potential genius.
Religion and nationality are what causes us to see through a glass darkly. The glass is a lens. The lens is a perspective. The perspective is a worldview.
The religious worldview paints a picture of creation that doesn't match the world when viewed. Nationality builds everything around the religion while using the brief, belief-based thought process of most folks, to lead them to believe church (religion) and state (nationality) are separate. Tell me your nationality and I will tell you the worldview of your religion.
Tell me your religion and I will tell you the worldview of your nationality. No, nationality is not primarily a land-based geographic designation.
Nationality is an origin-based designation. Nationality is worldview orientation. The first for instance: Most white folks have one nationality because they believe their origin is in Europe Asia.
So, because we know most white folks have one nationality, despite the names of their countries, then we also know most white folks have one religion, despite the names of those religions. It is the one nationality and one religion of white folks that informs their logic to maintain a global system of racism and genderism and so on. The second for instance: An unacceptably high number of black folks have a national orientation that is not African and a religious orientation, that is, of course, not spirituality. Thus for these folks, both their nationality and their religion works against them, whereas the same nationality and religion works in favor of white folks. The third for instance: An unacceptably high number of Africans in Africa have a national orientation of a country in Africa rather than being African foremost, yet their religion tells them their origin is not in Africa, thus these Africans not only believe in ideologies that work against self, their self-esteem is so low, they allow the national orientation they absolutely know to be true to be turned into a lie by the religion they believe in. This will make you Hutu/Tutsi crazy. "I know I'm an African but I believe I am not." "I believe humans originated in the Asian desert." The fourth for instance: Black folks in America, if you are African-American, American-African or American, you are in trouble and you already show it. If you have a spirituality that does not connect you to the place where your Ancestral spirit-soul crossed the spiritual dimension into this physical dimension, you are in trouble and your theme song will be "Trouble in my way, I have to cry sometimes, Jesus will fix it and save my black behind" rather than the theme song being "Trouble don't want none of this blackness, the greater genetics and me are one intertwined, the Creator has fixed it so I can participate in saving my own behind!" *Religion is lower-self spirituality. Note: Although specific examples are in black and white, these same examples always apply to all other groups of people and categories and also apply to the same groups of people and categories in different locations.
