Spiritual Vs Religious – Oh Yea I’m Going There – Religious Drama – They Should Have Listened To Their Momma – 15+ Reasons Why I Question Religious Drama

If you have reviewed at least a few of my over 200 blog posts (and now podcasts) you would clearly know that I am not a big fan of organized religion.

Like many people, I have adopted the position of being spiritual, but not religious. At times, I despise religion. …Too much drama. I am amazingly comfortable with my position until I am changed in mind (through experience and research) and spirit (through God’s intervention).

In this post, I reveal 15+ reasons why I shy away from Religion and Religious Drama. Some of the most negative experiences that I’ve had were with Religious people. …Ones who judge about what I would call minor sins such as using profanity, eating pork, or being too proud, while they blatantly violate in worst ways.

As I am judged by them, I could think of a plethora of violations that they make, “In the name of Jesus/Allah”. I don’t tell them directly. I tell them in general through my creative, written, and media works. But I admit that it is a bit frustrating.

I try my best to stay clear of these types of people, though they seem to be drawn to me. I simply respect their beliefs (for them) but fully exercise my right to free will and thought. They spit on me with scripture, while I realize that the bible has 900 versions, and the Quran has 30. I consider that there are missing books, slavery’s influence, and man’s interpretation, depriving me of mine. I am not sure that they realize this.

You May Not Believe in God – But Know That Satan’s At Work, Bigtime! – Secrets on How He Works – The Devil’s Bag of Tricks

I am reposting this article because of an epiphany that I just had in a discussion with a dear minister friend.  In this conversation, I realized that Satan operates from the same bag of tricks.  The tools used against me, as a Black man, by institutional racism, by friends, family, and The Black Community, are universal tools.  

As the cliché says, Same Devil, Different day.  Kevy


When I refer to Satan, I don’t think of a red naked man with horns and a pitchfork. That is a fairy tale that I haven’t believed since maybe the age of 5 years. I included such images in this post, only because everyone can relate to these images of evil, as they relate to “images” of Jesus.  I don’t believe in the White image of Jesus either, though pictures of White Jesus and Virgin Mary hang on my wall, left by my dear mother. 

I don’t believe that Satan unto himself is of flesh. Satan is simply a spirit, an evil one that wants to separate us from God, and therefore prevent our access to the Kingdom, and to blessings while here on Earth.  He wants to distract us from our beauty and power.  He infiltrates the flesh.  He overcomes the minds of the weak and convinces them that they act on their own accord.  He is cunning and baffling like The Lobster is with coronavirus.  Or, like America treats Blacks.  Or, deception in our families, amongst friends, and humanity.  Satan’s spirit is enmeshed in our destruction of the planet, the once-was paradise that God granted us.  This is where Satan manifested resides today.  

Satan doesn’t want us to know how powerful we are through the Holy Spirit. That is why he’s anxious to block our access to God. He (his spirit) wants us to think that he is more than a mere spirit, a thought, an imagining. He wants us to believe that he has power over us.

But he doesn’t, provided we don’t surrender to him. Continue reading “You May Not Believe in God – But Know That Satan’s At Work, Bigtime! – Secrets on How He Works – The Devil’s Bag of Tricks”
