Propanganda to steer up unncessary controversy, in a country like USA where social amenities are provided,jobs are plenty, education is A+, human rights exist , and people can feed ,you attribute the happiness of a child to the church??, what about Nigeria ,one of the most religious nations on earth? how come we are a population of 200 million where 44% are between the ages of 14 -30 and we aren't declared the happiest nation on earth?? What a load of crap.

Some even claim the church is our moral compass, but my country has more church branches than all the educational institutions combined ( primary to university level) and yet IMMORALITY is at a all time high!! Who are we actually disceiving.

So you imply that kids that don't go to church do not have access to social amenities as their counterpart going to church? Learn how to understand research report, it wasn't even talking about being the happiest but 18% happier based on the sampling.

As Nigeria, we are not the least happy people on earth despite poor social amenities. Dont you even see how cheerful people go to church on Sunday morning? what can it be if not happiness?

You doing more harm than good to your kids mental health this is why genius hardly come out from the black race world wide.


Stop wasting your time on a none existent entity named God.

How did the world come about? God. Why do we breathe air? God. Who created you? God. How does the earth rovolves and still rotates along its axis? God. Watin? Ah ha, i understand you ignorant but atleast get curious for once to read and outsmart your previous ignorant self for once in a lifetime because those are the list of questions we assume God did but upon scientific ground breaking discoveries, we now know how those things works.

There are plenty more we still learning and also manipulating what we already know for human survival on the planet.

This means, God as a name or perceived entity is a receeding pocket of ignorance, the more we study to know, the smaller the ignorance shrinks smaller and smaller till it goes away completely but the question is do we read to make this ignorance go away?

There is some truth in this. However, what you see as happiness is actually a facade. Church and religion as a whole promotes pretense. Growing into adults, humans perfect this pretense even if they are dying inside.

I grew up to believe that being unhappy about one's state is a lack of appreciation for and faith in God. We should always be happy and in all things give glory to God. I believed it all. smiley

Those who aren't very religious are much more sincere with themselves are are more likely to be seen as sad, than the religious who mask the emptiness, disappointment and frustration with smiles and songs.

Hmm.

You reason like your brain has distorted structures.

You might want to take a mental medical test.

Please, try and read motivational quotes a lot.

see this one. It's shocking to you that I think there is a lot of pretense in religion?

You are an example, see the way you are trying to bash someone you barely know just because I dared to be sincere. As far as you know, the only way I can think different from the way you are conditioned to think is if I have some sort of mental disorder. News flash, I don't.

Bullying, fear mongering, group thinking, guilt tripping, gaslighting... I'm past all those nonsense psychological weapons used by mainstream religions now. So don't bother.

I'm no longer in mental shackles like you and your kind. I'm also probably saner than everyone that has ever existed in your family tree.

So thanks for the suggestion, but you need the mental treatment way more than I do or ever will.

The Bible categorises you as a walking corpse.
So, however else you're described is euphemistic enough.

"woe unto him that strives with his Maker".

typical ignorant yet religiously bigoted self-righteous soul. Deep down you know you are evil and so you try to convince yourself that the next person is worse, even when you don't know them.

You think you know God, with your evil heart. I know your kind. Quote the Bible in public and defraud or try to destroy others, or sleep with other peoples wives in secret.

The God who made the universe sees through your hypocrisy. Whether he's the God your pretentious soul worships, is another matter. If your hellfire exists, you aren't escaping it.

I don't do any of those sins.

You think no one can be free from sin.

Don't worry.
When you step into hell, you'll realise that your 500 cm³ head alone could never have supported you spiritually.

And then, he finished up with ellipsis. You probably don't know why ellipsis is used in a sentence.

These teenagers who have stolen phones and free data can come online and talk stupid.

Boy, why is Christianity Africa's problem?

Pls give statistics of how progressive Africa was before Christianity got here and how it has regressed since then.

I'm waiting.
