9. I'm wondering what the scriptural basis is for that? I would think first
they would stamp out those damnable fig trees! Perhaps the power they wield, isn't actually handed down by any hero, but just another way of one group of humans trying to get over on another group of humans. Perhaps Religion is all about a small group of people trying to take our power just so they can have it. That could explain why there are all those one true religions. Is Religion really just another enemy of the People masquerading as authority?
