Quote: "Regardless of people’s economic, employment, or other status, the good in their lives is because of God’s mercy, and his greatest mercy is in Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross and resurrection, not a political party." ... "People can mock Christians, frag I know I'm not righteous by what I do, but I, you, and others are made right by what Jesus has done, and He is righteous."
How about giving human beings full credit for all the good and bad things? Then single out subgroups and individuals that do good or bad accordingly? If a person chooses not to get in trouble and lives an ethical and moral life then that person should get the credit because they're doing the work.
The problem is that religion devalues human beings in general: The human is considered lesser than what's outside of themselves and MUST submit without conflict to the forces at work. Any human capability is deemed with a snide sneer as being wretched.
And who gets to wield that power? More than likely another human being who gets their rocks off on being in charge as a "shepherd" as they call groups of human beings "the flock" and the individual a "lost sheep".
I'm not mocking religion. It just makes no sense to me for you can't win with Original Sin.
