Are You Gambling With Life?
Back To Top
Steve Jobs was a very intelligent, enterprising man. He built an empire out of being able to tap into people's needs and find the means to meet those needs.
He was very wealthy and resourceful yet when he fell ill with cancer, Jobs went off on a "spiritual" tangent in resorting to alternative medicine to cure him.
He eventually succumbed to his illness and the consensus was (and he agreed just before his death) that he would have lived much longer or even beaten cancer had he followed the proven, properly researched path of conventional medicine.
Is there a similarity with following religion?
Religion involves the worshipping of a creator and master of which there is no evidence whatsoever. It involves the sacrifice of ignoring anything that may conflict with the belief resulting in a very limited, closed-door view of life.
Does this enforced restriction of what life offers slowly constrict religious followers to the point that they are dying without even knowing it?
