Religion may become a part of the Swamp – how might it be?

The Swamp is dangerous for the spiritual health of our nation.

What is the essence of the Swamp and why it is dangerous for the Judeo-Christian America is described in this Blog in earlier publications.

^Religion is a human-made institution that was created to help the human individuals establish direct connections with God to tailor God-guided morality instructions to unique individual life circumstances, and those priests who do this are keeping everybody at the God’s High Grounds. However, there are authoritative religious leaders who position themselves as the sole God’s appointees for explaining and enforcing His guidance, and they are pushing the Religion into the Swamp.  

^Authoritative religious leaders should complement each other in their unique understanding of God’s morality guidance. However, some of these authoritative religious leaders are trying to present their own understanding to be the only the truth “from the mouth of God,” and they are pushing the Religion into the swamp.

^Authoritative religious leaders should make the prayers and religious studies aiming at clarifying the God’s guidance on how to influence all national governing powers to help the nation strengthen the God-guided morality of “individual freedoms and responsibilities” in “the image and likeness of God.” However, there are some authoritative religious leaders who are scared to do this. They are pushing the Religion into the swamp.  

^Authoritative religious leaders should “preach” the spiritual unity of Judaism and Christianity as the must for preserving the Judeo-Christian national morality. Those authoritative religious leaders who do not understand this are pushing the Religion into the swamp.

^Authoritative religious leaders should treat Religion and Science as equal research entities with Religion researching the God’s Laws of human morality and Science researching the God’s Laws of Nature. Those authoritative religious leaders who do not understand this are pushing the Religion into the swamp.
