These two countries for some reason, seem to have turned against religion all of a sudden. Maybe it's been slowly happening, but it seems more sudden to me. Did I miss it when the Messiah came down from Heaven and committed some kind of a crime? That would explain why there has been a marginalization of religion lately. Or is there just too much talk about the topic of religion? Or maybe it is used in politics too often. I don't know, but religion just seems to be a bad word, a bad idea nowadays.
Have we as Canadians and Americans turned into nations of unbelievers without faith? If this is so then we have a big problem. If we don’t have faith in the good Lord then what do we have faith in? Ourselves? I personally don't have a lot of faith in people (i.e. ourselves). We generally don't have a great track record. In North America we've had a better track record than most of the rest of the world as far as civility and decency. But, we had religion helping us along.
I do think there are still a lot of people that believe in the good Lord, and I am one of them.
I have as my personal saying "a person without faith, is a person that is lost". Whatever is written in the Bible (e.g. the Ten Commandments), a person without faith does not believe in conducting themselves according to those ideas. That person is a candidate for incineration once deceased. That’s my way of thinking.
