It was a cry of the sixties.
There have been some who equated this with battling religion (at least from the perspective of a personal viewpoint), the Church, and Christians.
And the last two also, when raged against, were drawn from personal experiences. Many, so affected, predisposed against religion, came out from the influence passed on by “incorrect practitioners” of the Biblical themes.
It is not uncommon due to the law of dualities, that a child, having been kept under the thumb of a incorrect worship, should grow up to despise the mention, or representations of “religion”. So such a offspring will, mistaking a retaliation, for a individualistic “genius’ spark”, will typically grow up to assail all semblances of any “religion”, or for that matter; Authority.
Value, is all we, in lacking it, sought after, often to our detriment. Including the destruction of our Souls.
Impressions made upon us, lasting ones by those we trusted. Our guardians. Likely projecting great images of hypocrisy. Due to Duality, counterpart practice, it is not uncommon, the child who aspires, in the actions, deemed wrong, of the guardian, to branch out in “opposites”.
The corresponding quests procured by such a offspring, commonsensically will be akin to; “I will never be like that”.
The child finds, purpose, value in such a counterpart mission. Identification with a value denied while under the thumb of “erstwhile oppressors”.
Battling Authority. Fighting old battles, “Having Issues”.
Being igged by some representations posed.
But this, mind you, is the “Human Conscience” erecting a parallel religion to counteract, oppose a theme of religion, as evaluated, by man’s need for value.
Ironically, it is a “faith”, being practiced. One which makes the practitioner feel “good”. Oppose all authority, becomes the cry, because one has found a target, a recipient for blame, without (IE; Not Me), outside self.
Funny (sad), but this had to come about, because the psyche of the offspring had it quite difficult under the god of “perfection” driving the poor and oppressed guardians.
Isn’t this (above) why our beloved Savior says, with great compassion and love; “Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”
If anything can be attributed to real religion, dear friends, it is the above, and not that evoked by bondage to the human conscience and to the god of “perfection”. No not that which will drive us to opposite ideals. Drive us out of hurt. Out of hurt to erect monuments, which though not eternal, can mislead many.
A great load of philosophies are spawned out of this affliction, dearly beloved.
With the correct assessment, dear friend, you too can find God. I urge you to peruse some of my posts if you are in need of direction, dear one to the God of Creation. Don’t allow for a hurt spawned out of broken hearts to misdirect you. The Gospel message is true, and simple, yet a power imbuing one. It provisions you with the ability to walk the path prescribed.
