Simple, list 3 things you like or that are positive about religion and 3 things you dislike or are negative about religion.

Note: like and positive are not the same thing, neither is dislike and negative but answer how you feel more comforable

Positive:
1. Can give a sense of inner peace and meaning in the world
2. Answers questions not easily resolved by science (what happens after death, etc.)
3. Sense of community with others

Negative:
1. Abuse of power by those in charge of the religion
2. Can cause people to not question authority (papal infallibility)
3. False sense of security (I can do what I want rest of the week as long as I go to church on Sunday)

I am another anonymous face in the crowd. I am just another tiny wheel in the machinery of the world I live in.

I think I like Darkwinds positives

My negatives'
1. Hierarchies  
2. False prophets leading masses (and other religious abuse)
3. Harsh clash of comprehension between people who can't agree - leading to hate between parties (separatism)

According to Gnosticism, Christ came to world to give us a way out; so, why is Gnosticism so secretive and elitist when it comes to salvation??
