Paul Knopf is ready to give his wisdom to you. He is breaking down the strange world of religion for us. It can be very controlling. The church can scare you in to the things that you do not want to do. The next thing you know you are spending money you can not afford.

However, it has helped people all over the world. Churches all over the world have done the greatest act of humanity in history. The extreme planet that all religions live on. Whether you are Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Buddhist or Jewish there are radicals in every religion. The fundamentalist  really mess it up for people who try to do what is right on earth.

People have been killed innocently because of this. Wars and oppression have been implemented to the masses. There has been too much killing and wars over this. Can this strange world  be to our detriment? The answer is, yes it possibly can. In the radical element, can the value of a human being be devalued? The answer is yes. The disregard for one person over the other for the simple issue of a mere belief is extremley outrageous.
