Trendy Spiritualism Promotes Unhappiness


This is hell, originally uploaded by ddbsweasel.

Tamara McLean writes "YOUNG people who embrace trendy, self-focused spiritualism are more anxious and depressed than those who believe in God or reject religion altogether, a survey shows."

Faith can be a natural extension of one's life, or it can be an ordeal. The idea of having to jump through hoops, to prove ones self again and again while life passes one by seems uninspiring to me. Yet many young churches with spiritualistic themes get a large number of young people, so that established churches tend to promote the same kind of insanity for their flocks.

The Anglican and Uniting Churches, in Australia, have done much harm in supporting new age fads, like social liberalism. Compare and contrast Rudd with the former Prime Minister, John Howard.
