What is the leader of the True Church trying to tell us?

I think it is this. There is no religion, there’s only family. First let me address the first part of that sentence. I’m going to go to Wikipedia to show you what people other than myself have to say about this subject of religion.

Thinkers such as Daniel Dubuisson have doubted that the term religion has any meaning outside of western cultures, while others, such as Ernst Feil even doubt that it has any specific, universal meaning even there.

4,300 different religions on earth. No wonder we’re so screwed up. Can you imagine if the NFL had 4,300 teams – or any other sport you chose? The rivalry that takes place with just the 32 they have is enough to get some fans in heated arguments that too often ends in violence. Not to mention how some of the players act. I’m not picking on football, I’m just trying to show how rivalry puts people against people.

But football rivalry cannot even begin to compare to religious rivalry.
