Who are more like slaves? Atheist, Religious People, or Spiritual People?

Whether you are a slave to your past, a doctrine, a thought-form, a fetish, a belief, or a drug, you are still chained to your mind(ego). Some of you might not understand. That’s ok maybe next lifetime you will get it. We all can’t start out butterflies. Some of us need chains to make our soul stronger. But for the ones in chains, you are slaves. Not necessarily the primitive version with physical steel restraints, but of non local entities. Who can really say who is free thinking? atheist are stuck with a non belief in a source thus chained to a limitation in truth. religious people are stuck with the belief in doctrine thus chained to limited knowledge and wisdom, spiritual people are stuck with questions thus chained to a search.

slave (slāv)
n.
One bound in servitude as the property of a person or household.

One who is abjectly subservient to a specified person or influence:

There is not one person on earth that is not a slave of some sort.

I, of my free will, choose be the slave of One who loves me rather than the idea one whose love I must earn or emptiness in atheism.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Hey, i know what you are talking about. Does this refer to Reincarnation?
if it does, everyone on this planet has been through it at least once or twice, or even more. In people’s past lifes, something in their past could have an affect in there new life. Like an eye for an eye and tooth for a tooth. or just karma…….
I believe that what people think and do makes them who they are today.
We are destined to perfect our souls so that we don’t have to go through the cycle of life and death.

Only above a servant (slave) is truly free.
Only know, not believe, makes you free.

Law = plan B: Bondage
Grace = plan A: Approved

No man is justified by the law in God’s sight.
Study to shew thyself APPROVED unto God.

Religious people are…because most religious belief systems’ do not allow for modification or adaption of their beliefs. What’s written in the holy book is inerrant, and nothing we discover later will ever modify those writings. That, in my opinion, is being a slave to one’s beliefs. Atheists, in general, simply rely on what we know about our world that comes from observation and experimentation. And if we get new information in the future that requires modification of existing knowledge, we do it…we’re free to adapt what we know to the available information. We’re not slaves to what was written down… Read more »

I don’t believe that I am ‘stuck’ with anything. My belief was my personal decision after years of studying (- or rather being forced to, much of the time -) religion. Religious people have a misconception of why some athiests are atheists. They seem to think that none of us have studied nor experienced religion and that we are uneducated. We do understand what it is that they believe in, we simply choose not to do so because that is our decision. We’re certainly not all ‘stupid’ ‘unaware’ or ‘blind’ – many of the other atheists I have spoken to… Read more »

Great question – the reality is that we are all slaves because we serve something (our selves included). Your comment on Ego was insightful. I would rather be a slave to The Creator who loves me and protects me than a slave to something as capricious and unreliable as my ego.

But that is just me.

Religious people, easily. It controls what they can and cannot do. It affects thinking and most of the time it discourages questioning of authority and myth.

Just follow the atheist belief system to its logical conclusion. If atheists followed their own beliefs to their logical conclusion, it would result in the belief in complete determinism; there can be no free will if humans are simply guided by the chemical reactions that take place in their brains. As William Provine pointed out, in the consistent evolutionary view, ‘there is no ultimate foundation for ethics, no ultimate meaning to life, and no free will for humans, either

With the possible exception of women who are married to Muslims and to fundamentalist Christians and fundamentalist Jews, I would say none of the above are “slaves.”

Killing, blood spilling for faith in your god
Spreading the message defending his fraud
Murder unheard of until their belief
Rape of the willing is blessed by the priest
Travel to new worlds enslaved under god
Destroy their cultures then leave them to rot
Purification, consent to concede
Killing the ones who will never believe
Annihilation, convert to the cross
Civilization all under one god
SLAVE TO THE CROSS
SLAVE TO THE CROSS
Splitting masses indivision
Genocidal inquisition
Unified through their religion
Wreck this world with heaven’s wisdom
Reign of the cross, the aggressor
Has killed more people than cancer
Slave to the cross of deception
When will we stop his infection
