Are popular monotheistic religions just distractions to prevent us from having spiritual enlightenment?

If there are supernatural forces, it seems unproductive to waste time on a religion that tells you what to think instead of providing the tools for enlightenment for you to use yourself.

There is a lot of truth in what you are saying.
We need a practical scientific method for the attainment of the total, yet hidden reality instead of baseless faith or belief. Religions provided us with a transition until we have become ready for the practical revelation, which time is now.

Be remembered to this, “be harmless as a dove”, the spirit will guide you and you into light, not to lay blame to this or that, it drags you down so you can not flourish, so if you are just finding light, did it not come from the writings also, should he care less of them than he does you, do you think that this could be a lesson to all of mankind, since it says, every knee shall bow, every tongue shall confess, be not a spiritual being hampered by your own convictions of others, they will come to… Read more »

I’d not say distractions…everything happens for a reason to bring us to where we are today. The key for those on the path to spiritual enlightenment is to understand we must allow those in organized monotheistic religions to have their way as we travel our road to enlightenment and higher vibrational energies.

Organized religion in general is just a tool to keep people under control basically. Instead of allowing people to come to their own choices about morality and good vs evil and right and wrong, it influences people decisions and gives them a twisted convoluted moral code to live by, which they rarely can by the way ensuring a lifetime of misery because you aren’t dependent on yourself for fulfillment.

I think that’s the problem with a l ot of religions is that they tell you what to believe and that it’s a “sin” to believe in any God other than their’s. Believe what you want

Yes, religions are just unspiritual bondage, they were created to conceal the truth not dispense it.
