Bro, 2+2=4 thats the way it has always been and it will never equal anything else. Its an interpretation of a book that is not based in historical fact. So what does that make it? Seriously. Im still waiting, Im doing my research on this religion, I have not to date come to any logical conclusion or hardcore evidence that this man ever existed, therefore the conclusion is foregone. I dont recall him asking anyone to accept his beliefs all he did what state what he KNOWS theres a difference. I agree with you here to a certain extent. I was in the church for 10 years and they did alot for each other too. but what we fail to realize is that this religion does ask people "not to worry about their woes on earth, let god handle it, turn the other cheek and they will get their reward in heaven. With all due respect this is what has been the tool of destruction keeping us from wealth and healthy living all over the world. The church teaches people to cope, not do and that is a fallacy. That is essentially what Leopold wanted them to do!!! If I had a dollar for every time I heard, "Jesus will fix it" "Let go and let god" while all these people and their families are still catching hell, Id be rich. Now there are some churches that realize this and are now going back to the days of Richard Allen and teaching people to "do". Thats why even though I dont agree totally with Elijah Muhamed philosophy atleast he actually taught people to do and be self sustained instead of "coping and letting God" God helps those that help themselves period. Ive said this a number of times on this forum. Ive learned to stop believing a long time ago. I KNOW a CREATOR EXISTS! I dont believe air exist just cause I cant see it, I know its there because I can feel it. I can feel the great spirit ITS IN ALL OF US AND YOU DONT NEED A BOOK OR ANYONE OUTSIDE YOUR BODY TO TELL YOU HOW TO LIVE, THINK OR BREATH. Aside from that there is nothing else for me to believe because since I was a child, I knew that there is no way to ever comprehend or understand a creator as long as you are in the body.
