Mechanism of spiritual management was in-built every from the world religions. The evaluation of benefits and shortcomings of this mechanism constructed in varied world religions shall be made additional. Different religions – varied types of paganism, Confucianism in China, Shinto in Japan, Hinduism and Krishnaism in India are extra primitive religions as compared with world religions as a result of the mechanism of spiritual management is not accomplished as much as the top on this different primitive religions. The faith existed in primitive society, however the mechanism of spiritual management was constructed a lot later – throughout period of transition from slaveholding society to feudalism for the primary time.       

Spiritual management, in addition to different kinds of management, consists that the controller forces of objects of management to hold out norms of habits beneath the specter of software of reward or punishment. The priest forces of believers to hold out spiritual norms of habits beneath risk to ship in paradise or hell. As folks thought of within the Center Ages, the Pope has keys of Heaven in a pocket. I think about the faith from the perspective of atheism and science on this paragraph, however I acknowledge benefit of faith and uselessness of makes an attempt to cancel faith. Although paradise and hell would not exist within the nature truly, however affect of the priest on believers is sort of actual as a result of believers consider in existence of those sanctions.

The mechanism of spiritual management is probably the most advanced as compared with different kinds of social management. The mankind has spent a number of centuries (about 500-700 years) for creation of this mechanism of spiritual management in Christianity. Then the creator of Islam Muhammad (years of life: approx. 570-632) has borrowed a construction of this mechanism from Christianity, Muhammad has improved even this mechanism in one thing – Muhammad has embodied precept of monotheism extra strictly, and Muhammad has worsened this mechanism in one thing – Muhammad could not enter icons and musical devices as parts of cult. Buddhism has arisen a lot earlier then Christianity – in the midst of 1 millennium BC due to this fact the construction of the mechanism of spiritual management has a extra primitive character within the Buddhism then in Christianity, for instance, there was no of notion about god within the Buddhism. God is Atman within the Buddhism, that’s vacancy. Folks say usually that the Buddhism is a faith with out god. Extra primitive fantasy about reward after loss of life is created within the Buddhism (about reincarnation}. Many actions exist within the Buddhism, the dogma is tangled extraordinarily within the Buddhism and the dogma reminds extra philosophical doctrine concerning the ethical norms resulting in rescue of soul within the Buddhism.

Polytheism is attribute for Shinto, Hinduism and Krishnaism. Polytheism has prevented to assemble the mechanism of spiritual management in these religions. Shinto is historical nationwide faith of Japanese. There’s a perception in existence of an enormous variety of gods in Shinto. Every factor has personal spirit, the deity (Kami). The Supreme deity is the solar goddess Amaterasu declared by ancestor of a ruling imperial dynasty. Hinduism and the Krishnaism is religions of Indians during which many gods exist, fundamental of which – Vishnu, Shiva, Brakhma and Krishna.

5 parts of mechanism of spiritual management:[edit]

  • the parable about reward after loss of life, 


  • supervision for commentary of spiritual norms


Fable about reward after loss of life[edit]

The parable about reward after loss of life by the use of which prophets have proved existence of spiritual sanctions in fingers of clergymen. Spiritual sanctions in Christianity and Islam are a risk of everlasting torment in hell and everlasting pleasure in paradise. Spiritual sanctions within the Buddhism are a promise of benefits in the midst of reincarnation. As Vladimir Vysotsky sang: “Hindus have thought up good faith”. If the individual behaves effectively on this life, then this individual shall be by chief or the minister within the subsequent life. If this individual behaves unhealthy on this life then this individual shall be by a snake, a pig or a baobab in subsequent life. The parable about paradise and hell was invented in Judaism within the Outdated Testomony for the primary time. There was a fantasy concerning the kingdom after loss of life in some earlier religions too the place souls of the useless males get. For instance, one in every of gods (Osiris) grew to become a tsar in a world after loss of life within the Egyptian faith the place Osiris judged of souls of the useless males. A monster (a lion with the top of a crocodile) devoured of souls of sinners. Souls of righteous individuals remained to dwell in Osiris’s kingdom the place there was loads of water and wheat. However different 4 parts of the mechanism of spiritual management weren’t created within the Egyptian faith about Osiris due to this fact the mechanism of spiritual management remained unfinished within the fantasy about Osiris. It was informed about Finish time within the Iranian prophecies of Zoroaster when gods win in opposition to demons within the final combat, and sacred hearth will clear of complete world, solely the righteous who adopted to phrases of the god Ahura Mazda will enter into future life, however the mechanism of spiritual management remained unfinished in these prophecies too. There’s a fantasy about God’s courtroom over dwell and useless males after Finish time in Christianity and Islam because of which righteous individuals will discover everlasting pleasure in paradise, and sinners along with a satan and his servants shall be condemned on everlasting torment in hell. Circle of reincarnations (sansara) is related with sufferings within the Buddhism. One of the best exit from this circulation of sufferings is the way in which of a righteous life consisting in respect for 5 ethical norms: abstention from inflicting the evil, abstention from a lie, abstention from theft, abstention from sensual pleasures and alcohol consumption. Respect for these norms has to deliver of individual to a non-existence, to immersion to a nirvana state – in a situation of the very best pleasure, the very best happiness and calm.

Conclusion: the simplest fantasy about reward after loss of life was invented in Christianity and this fantasy was borrowed from Christianity to Islam.



Monotheism is a fantasy about one God. Polytheism is fantasy about many Gods. It was tough for priest, for instance in Historical Rome, to power of believers to hold out norms of habits, as a result of, for instance, Mars (God of struggle) orders to go to the struggle, Venus (goddess of affection) orders to like, Mercury helps to be engaged in commerce, Vulcan helps to be engaged in handicraft, and the believer can undergo advices of that God which swimsuit to this believers, reasonably than swimsuit to a priest. By the way in which, plebeians esteemed particularly of Liber (God of wine and enjoyable). The Roman senate needed to forbid the unbridled orgies related with Bacchus-Dionysus’s cult even. That to streamline someway this advanced system of Gods, the Supreme God appeared, Zeus appeared at historical Greeks, Jupiter appeared at historical Romans, Odin appeared at Germans. Invention of monotheism had allowed to priest to order to believers to hold out norms of habits from face of a single God which has one code of norms and one will. Monotheism was invented for the primary time in Judaism, the place a single God by title Yahweh had created World and Man for seven days. Acts of this God and misadventures of the folks of Israel was described within the Outdated Testomony, the place myths exist about creation of World, about Flood, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, the revelation of God to Moses, the exodus of Jews from Egyptian captivity.

The primary 5 books of the Outdated Testomony had been named as Torah and this primary 5 books had been, allegedly, written by Moses in accordance with Yahweh. The Torah started to be written in 10-9 centuries BC. This work was continued as much as 5 century BC, when the Jerusalem clergymen have printed the Torah for the primary time, and Torah has modified nearly since. New Testomony has arisen in 1‐2 centuries AD and New Testomony consists from 4 books (Gospels), the place it’s informed concerning the lifetime of Jesus Christ (son of God), his struggling, loss of life and fantastic revival, creating of miracles and lectures. The fourth Gospel (Revelation of St John) attracts the photographs of Final Judgement. It’s described within the actions of Apostles (pupils of Jesus Christ) that Holy Spirit had gone to the Apostles just a few days after the Ascension of Jesus Christ in Heaven. Apostles had discovered to talk to completely different language instantly and Apostles had gone to evangelise Christianity in several nations.

Thus, there have been three Gods in Christianity traditionally:

However just one god was crucial. Due to this fact clergymen met on Ecumenical Council twice (First Council of Nicaea in 325 AD and the First Council of Constantinople in 381 AD) and clergymen had determined to consider that God is one in three Divine individuals, in three hypostases. Entity of this doctrine about “Trinity” consists in {that a} single God has three manifestations. Till right this moment, scientists and theologians puzzle over this contradiction 3 = 1, and all the pieces could be very simple right here, clergymen can do 1 God from 10 gods even for realization of the social order.  Alexandria’s Bishop Arius hasn’t understood this social order and Arius continued insist on the normal perspective that God‐father is the one God and Jesus Christ is just not true God, however Jesus Christ was as glorious creation of God‐father” solely. Due to this fact Arius was declared as heretic in First Council of Nicaea, Arius was excommunicated and Arius was exiled. Such bitter future waited additionally for different clergymen who had deviated from line on constructing of mechanism of spiritual management or these clergymen continued to insist on outdated conventional dogmas. For instance, representatives of Monophysitism (Armenian Church) acknowledged just one divine nature in Jesus Christ and representatives of Monophysitism denied human nature in Jesus Christ. Representatives of Iconoclasm fought in opposition to the introduction of icons in Byzantium in 8‐9 centuries AD, as a result of  representatives of Iconoclasm did not perceive advantages of icons for strengthening of controlling affect on believers, representatives of Iconoclasm referred to the third God’s Commandment from Ten Commandments “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven picture”. [1] “You shall not make for your self any carved picture, or any likeness of something that’s in heaven above, or that’s within the earth beneath, or that’s within the water beneath the earth; you shall not bow right down to them nor serve them.”. Icon performs the position of visible aids for illiterate believers, the place these believers can see clearly the photographs of Final Judgement, paradise and hell. These clergymen received in these disputes inevitably at all times who proposed measures for enchancment of mechanism of spiritual management.  The church sought to maintain this mechanism protected and sound after creation of this mechanism, that to not enable his destruction by inadequately conceiving false prophets (by heretics).

The creator of Islam Muhammad has made conclusions of the issues of Christians with monotheism and with dogma about Trinity, due to this fact Muhammad proclaimed the strict monotheism: ““There isn’t any god however Allah alone and Muhammad is the messenger of God”, that’s Muhammad is just not god, however Muhammad is the bizarre individual in whom god has impressed the reality.

Conclusion: the precept of monotheism is carried out extra strictly in Islam, than in Christianity, the one benefit of Islam consists in that as compared with Christianity.  

The cult[edit]

Cult is a system of rites, symbolic issues, musical devices, which have a operate of the amplifier of affect on believers within the fingers of a priest.  
The drawback of the Roman faith consisted in that this faith carried seal of formalism within the efficiency of rites, Roman faith didn’t excite sacred awe, Roman faith touched emotions of believers slightly, Roman faith demanded petty efficiency of rites, reasonably than the religious merge with god. Roman faith didn’t promise the salvation from life’s adversity.  Roman faith gave to believers a sense of inner dissatisfaction, Roman faith couldn’t consolation of struggling males. Thus, the Roman faith had unhealthy cult. Due to this fact, Rome had borrowed Christianity’s cult from the East, the place system of mystical rites was developed for a very long time, this jap rites was succesful to render a strongest affect to the emotions of believers, and diploma of spiritual fanaticism was larger in East at all times.   

The Japanese rites enable to show spiritual sermon into process of mass hypnosis and the Japanese rites enable to show the gang of believers to crowd of blind fanatics the Japanese rites enable deliver these fanatics earlier than spiritual ecstasy. Different technique of strengthening of suggestibility exist additionally besides a state of affairs of a mass prayer: icon, bell, organ’s music at Catholics, majestic structure, drums and copper cymbals at Buddhists, gilded vestments of clergymen, cross worn on the neck at Christians, quite a few bows and genuflections. Any pictures of the individual and animals are forbidden within the temple in Islam. Muslims attempt to compensate the absence of icons and musical devices with assist of numerous mass prays in temple. A Muslim is obliged to wish 5 instances in day, for {that a} Muslim carry with itself a rug all over the place. A Muslim should stand on personal knees on this rug within the means of prayer and to bow earlier than the earth.   

When Kiev’s Prince Vladimir the Nice selected faith for Russia as a substitute paganism on the finish of 10 century AD, Vladimir the Nice had despatched personal ambassadors in several nations, this ambassadors had seen poorly adorned Muslim temples, unhappy prayer, unhappy faces of believers in Volga Bulgaria. Ambassadors had seen magnificence of the temple, wealthy clothes of clergymen, furnishings of altars, pleasant singing of kliros (church choir), sacred significance and thriller of ceremonies in Orthodox Cathedral of Sacred Sofia in Constantinople, as if supreme God lives on this temple and connects on to folks.

Buddhism is characterised by a lush divine service within the datsans (monasteries), the place sculptures of the Buddha and different gods of the Buddhist pantheon are positioned. Buddhism changed repetition of spells to rotation of drums crammed by texts of prayers and sacred literature.  

Conclusion: poor cult in Islam is drawback as compared with Christianity and even as compared with Buddhism.

The clergy[edit]


Clergy is a hierarchical pyramid of clergymen with extreme self-discipline inside this pyramid. This pyramid had arisen not without delay. Wandering clergymen preached faith in interval of the formation of Christianity, this clergymen moved from one group to a different group. This wandering clergymen had been named by charismatics. Charisma is a Divine grace, of God’s reward, reward to do miracles and prophecy. This clergymen preached Christianity at personal discretion. This led to fixed conflicts, schisms and disputes on spiritual issues. That to beat conflicts, a single hierarchical group (the Christian Church) was created at First Council of Nicaea in 325 AD, this Christian Church consists from clergy (group of clergymen) and laymen (believers with out Holy orders).  

Hierarchy inside the Catholic Church:

Relations of those clergymen have extraordinarily authoritarian character: blind submission is required from the bottom ranks to the very best ranks.  Excommunication from Church, pilgrimage to holy locations, public repentance, scourging, carrying of shameful indicators, imprisonment had been utilized as punishment in Church. Imprisonment had been lifelong in solitary confinement, in shackles, on bread and water. Such sanctions had been utilized within the Church  like in any hierarchical pyramid as promotion or demotion in service. Inquisition transfers of heretics persisting in heresy to the fingers of secular authorities for burning on hearth. Any makes an attempt to divide the Church, to alter dogma with out permission of Ecumenical council or Pope, to break a  mechanism of spiritual management had been nipped within the bud with assist of those merciless punishments. East–West Schism of the Christian Church to Catholic Church and Orthodox Church had occurred in 1054. Pontiff of Rome had stood within the head of Catholics. Patriarch of Byzantine had stood within the head of Orthodoxies. The destruction of Byzantium had led to a weakening of the authorities of the Byzantine
Patriarch and even to his humiliation in aspect of the Turkish Muslims.  Patriarch stays in head of Russian Orthodox Church right this moment too.         

Moscow tried even to nominate herself by Centre of Orthodoxy. Patriarch Nikon of Moscow had organized for this church’s reform in 17 century  with assist to right of errors within the Bible, this errors had been admitted beneath quite a few copying of the Bible, because the introduction of Russian Orthodoxy in 10 century.

Record of errors which Patriarch Nikon had corrected:

  • Russian Orthodox folks had begun to christen with assist of three fingers, as a substitute of two fingers.
  • Russian Orthodox folks had begun to put in writing “Jesus Christ” as a substitute of “Isus Christ” and so forth. 


Related hierarchical pyramid was established in Islam and Buddhism too. Islam had been divided to 2 instructions (Sunni Islam and Shia Islam). An enormous amount of monks exists in Tibetan Buddhism, as a result of the elder son in any household turns into by Lama (priest or Monk) often.   

Supervision for observance of spiritual norms[edit]

Parish clergymen engaged to upbringing of believers instantly, parish clergymen guided by the Bible in personal sermons and parish clergymen interpreted by Bible’s content material in several methods relying from the state of affairs, parish clergymen gave instructive examples. Based on Outdated Testomony,  Yahweh entered into union with ancestor of Jewish folks Jacob, after which with the itself Jewish folks. God has acknowledged personal will, God had given manuals, the precepts and legal guidelines. God promised awards for obedience and probably the most extreme penalties for disobedience. The Jewish folks, led by Moses, has escaped from Egyptian captivity to Palestine as soon as.

Jahveh had proclaimed to Moses ten commandments on mount Sinai on this street from Egyptian captivity to Palestine, this legal guidelines had been the principle norms of habits for believers:

  • The primary three commandments forbid to folks to produce other gods, besides Jahveh (that is the preservation of precept of monotheism), and make any pictures of Jahveh (prohibition to attract the icons and to make the crucifixion of Jesus Christ).
  • Fourth commandment calls for to observance of the break day – Saturday. It’s forbidden strictly for Jews to work on this day of week and right this moment.
  • Fifth commandment calls for absolute respect for fogeys.  
  • The remaining commandments calls for “Not kill!”, “Not steal”, “Not covet neighbour’s home,  neighbour’s spouse, neighbour’s servants, neighbour’s animals, or anything. [2] 

Jesus Christ mentioned to apostles earlier than ascension to the heaven within the New Testomony in Sermon on the Mount, during which Jesus Christ introduced the “Beatitudes”:

  • “Blessed are the poor in spirit”.
  • “Blessed are those that mourn”.
  • “Blessed are the meek”.
  • “Blessed are those that starvation and thirst for righteousness”.
  • “Blessed are the merciful”.
  • “Blessed are the pure in coronary heart”.
  • “Blessed are the peacemakers”.
  • “Blessed are those that are persecuted for righteousness sake”. 

Jesus Christ referred to as:

  • That ye resist not a evil: however whosoever shall smite thee on thy proper cheek, flip to him the opposite additionally.
  • Love your enemies, bless them that curse you. [3] 

Conclusion: The sermon of humility saves of society from superfluous social conflicts, however this sermon makes of believers by excessively passive folks. Some spiritual norms make habits of individuals merely insufficient to necessities of actuality, as a result of folks needed to enter to conflicts for energy and wealth continuously even in opposition to spiritual norms.  

Two strategies of management over observance for spiritual norms are recognized:

  • Supervision of the believer by the priest. The believer should confess to the priest his sins on the confession, after which the priest should forgive the believer on behalf of God. The priest should observe the key of confession – to not disclose the data obtained at confession. At this time, the church practices primarily collective confession.

 * Supervision of the believer by the group..  

Conclusion: the second type of management is more practical.  

Max Weber concerning the Protestant ethics and spirit of capitalism.  Essence to the cardinal reorganization of the mechanism of spiritual management made by John Kalvin[edit]


Diderot par Louis-Michel van Bathroom en 1767 (musée du Louvre)

The Pope and the Catholic church has acquired monumental, even extreme energy in Western Europe within the Center Ages. The Pope fought for the Supreme energy with the emperor of the Holy Roman Empire which united, typically German principalities. Nearly every new emperor was pressured to prepare marketing campaign to Rome in the beginning of personal board with the aim to power of Pope to crown him in case if Pope would not wish to do this voluntarily.

Technique of wrestle in fingers of Pope in opposition to emperors: 

  • There may be excommunication of emperor.
  • There may be permission of Pope to vassals of emperor that this vassals may break an oath of fealty to the Emperor, after that this vassal may betray of Emperor usually and this vassals handed to aspect of Pope.
  • There may be imposing of interdict on the responsible  territory, that’s the prohibition to conduct spiritual ceremonies (to learn the Funeral service of deceased males and to conduct Toddler baptism, with out which these deceased males and infants needed to find yourself in hell straight in accordance with folks of that point.  

Pope was the truth is solely Middle of energy in situations of feudal disunion and the weak point of the Royal energy within the center ages in Western Europe. However nonetheless Pope had misplaced this wrestle to secular rulers in spite of everything, in consequence the Catholic Church was misplaced its secular energy and worth largely. The French King seized Rome and the French King captured of Pope, French King has taken away of Pope from Rome and French King has pressured of Pope to dwell within the metropolis of Avignon. Pope had returned from  Avignon’s captivity, however Pope had misplaced personal secular energy in Western Europe as outcome this Avignon’s captivity.   

The Pope obtained big revenue from all Catholic nations of Western Europe within the center ages. An enormous move of gold flowed from throughout Western Europe to Rome. Pope and Cardinals lived in luxurious, Pope and Cardinals spent personal time at feasts and looking, such a lifestyle grew to become a shame for the Catholic Church.

This incomes of Pope consisted from a number of sources: 

  • There may be Church’s tithe, as tax in advantage of the Church.  
  • There are incomes from possession of the monastery land and monastic peasants.
  • There are donations from revenues in favor of church.
  • Fee for ceremonies (Toddler baptism, the studying of Funeral service of deceased folks, weddings ceremony and so forth. 
  • This cash was not sufficient for Pope even  and Pope ordered to promote throughout the entire Europe indulgences (paperwork a couple of remission of sins).  

Sale of indulgences has turn into the final straw which has overflowed bowl of endurance of believers. Moreover, a bunch of individuals has appeared in Western Europe, this group of individuals had been in a position to depend cash, it was the layer of entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs have organized spiritual revolution (Reformation), as results of which the nations of Northern Europe have turn into by Protestant and this nations have ceased to pay cash to Pope. Martin Luther in Germany and John Calvin in Switzerland have turn into by first Protestant prophets.  
German sociologist Max Weber has mirrored the essence of this Protestant revolution in work “The protestant ethics and the spirit of capitalism”[4], which Max Weber has written in 1904‐1905. Researchers of his scientific creativity of Max Weber verify usually that Max Weber wished in his e-book to disprove historic materialism of Karl Marx. Karl Marx thought of the faith as superstructure and Karl Marx thought of financial system as foundation, on the similar time foundation determines superstructure, for instance, allegedly, capitalist financial system forces faith to justify capitalist exploitation from the title of God. Opposite to it, Max Weber thought of that Protestant ethics and protestant faith has generated capitalism. Protestant faith has urged to exhausting work, save up cash and to place them them into circulation, that to obtain new cash.

The Protestant faith was created for the upbringing of entrepreneurs. Catholics believed earlier {that a} beggar and victims get to paradise. Gohn Calvin has invented the parable about Predestination which essence is as follows. Protestants believed that solely these folks get to paradise which individuals was elected by God upfront from beginning. Folks do not foreknow personal future, personal Predestination – to get to paradise or to hell, however folks might guess. For that man ought to interact by enterprise. If because of enterprise exercise man has grown wealthy, then it signifies that man is elected by God and God helps to this man already throughout lifetime, God helps in enterprise. If man has grew to become by poor bankrupt  because of  enterprise exercise, it signifies that God has despatched this man to hell upfront and God punishes this man at throughout lifetime.

Protestant earns cash with out intention that to spend this cash and to take pleasure in of life (to purchase a home, yacht and automobile), protestant earns the cash that to earn a cross to paradise.

Here’s a precepts from the Code of Builder of capitalism, which had been preached by Benjamin Franklin and Ferdinand Kürnberger:
• Chest with gold is a cross to paradise.

• Time is cash.  

• Cash give beginning the brand new cash.  

• If males  produced the fats from livestock, that entrepreneurs produced the cash from males.

• The purse of different folks is open for the one who precisely pays money owed.

• The knock of your hammer conjures up tranquility in your collectors
With perspective Max Weber, capitalism may seem solely in Western Europe, the place the Protestant faith deliver up the aspiration to revenue purposefully. The love of Chinese language to traditions prevented to the emergence of capitalism in China. The caste system and fantasy about reincarnation prevented of capitalism in India, as a result of the caste system is incompatible with the free labour and fantasy about reincarnation made mindless the aspiration to revenue. John Calvin has restructured the mechanism of spiritual management slightly, however John Calvin has not destroyed the mechanism of spiritual management. John Calvin left in inviolability the primary two parts of this mechanism the parable about reward after loss of life and monotheism), however John Calvin has modified the cult, John Calvin has canceled the utilizing of icons, crucifixes, crosses, frescos, costly garments of clergymen and so forth, with intention to make the Church by “low cost”, with intention to take away gold and silver from the system of cult (Golden frames of icons, Golden crosses, Golden clothes of clergymen). Protestants (Huguenots) rushed to Catolic temples and Huguenots lower icons with assist of axes throughout a non secular struggle with Catholics in France. John Calvin has destroyed the hierarchical pyramid inside clergy, clergymen ceased to be appointed from above, group has begun to decide on of clergymen from personal atmosphere. Bible was translated with Latin language unclear for a lot of males into nationwide languages (German, English, French and so forth), due to this fact the easy believers has obtained the chance to learn the Bible daily themselves and the easy believers has obtained the chance to be engaged in self-education. Solely priest had the precise to save lots of the believers from sine earlier, believers had been in a position to save themselves now. Monasteries had been closed, as a result of John Calvin thought of that the monks had been parasites which had been doomed to get into hell. Thus, the amount of clergymen was lowered radically, this has allowed to scale back the prices for upkeep of clergymen in lots of instances that to make the Church even cheaper.

John Calvin had canceled the confession and John Calvin had handed from supervision of the believer by the priest to more practical supervision of the believer by the group. Protestant communities started to remind the primary communities of Christians in early within the first Millennium. John Calvin had forbidden even costly clothes for inhabitants and entertainments in Geneva that entertainments didn’t forestall to Protestants to have interaction to their fundamental affairs – to wish and to work. Constructive values of the Protestant faith is that the nations of Northern Europe (England, Holland, Switzerland, Sweden, Northern Germany and later the USA) have turn into the wealthy nations, and Catholic nations of southern Europe (Spain, Portugal and Italy) have turn into poor nations.   

Conclusion: the Protestant faith is probably the most superior and helpful throughout a capitalism period.

The good thing about faith[edit]


The good thing about faith is that faith helps to ascertain the social peace and to fulfill human want in comfort of emotions of grief, sorrow, loneliness and particularly worry earlier than loss of life. Christianity was faith of backside for society at starting of personal historical past, however elite had established the management beneath clergy subsequently with assist of promotion of representatives of elite to senior posts inside the clergy and with assist of financial donations. Elite noticed in Christianity “the bridle” for Plebs. Slaves had been positioned exterior the system of spiritual organizations in historical Rome, however Christianity has integrated of slaves into system of spiritual management at to begin with, as people who find themselves inclined most of all to the destruction of social peace. All Revolutionary Military had been consisted from beggars and slaves. If faith consoles the worry earlier than loss of life, that the atheists are sad folks on this relation. There may be such cost for the progress of science. Faith is irreplaceable factor in precept within the sense of comfort of worry earlier than loss of life.

The Russian communists tried to destroy faith and Church as the newest counter‐revolutionary get together, communists have despatched to jail and communists have shot many clergymen, communists have dynamited many temples, communists have carried out the atheistic propaganda, however communists had been unable to destroy faith, as a result of to cancel the worry earlier than loss of life is just not attainable in precept. Then communists have put the faith beneath the supervision of the political police and communists have pressured of some clergymen to function informants. There have been simpler for Bolsheviks to place beneath management the Orthodox Church than Protestant sects, who may operate semi‐legally, many others clergymen may seem on the place of arrested protestant’s preacher on one other day, as a result of every bizarre believer is obliged to know the Bible in perfection at Protestants. The Communists tried to console of individuals with assist of the tales about communism, however folks didn’t consider on this tales. Аttempt of Communists to destroy faith and Church has failed, as a result of the mechanism of spiritual management is a good social invention, such nice social innovations disappear by no means within the historical past of society and this nice social innovations are added solely.

French materialists (Claude Adrien Helvétius, Julien Offray de La Mettrie, Denis Diderot, Baron d’Holbach) thought of the faith as sort of delusion, false outlook. After all, these critics of faith had been proper in that things like God, paradise and hell don’t exist in nature, however it has turned out that faith doesn’t interact by search of the reality, cognition is just not operate of a faith already for a very long time. Сognition is a operate of science, as a result of related criticism of faith shoot large of the mark. French materialists have assigned to Church someone else’s operate, after which this materialists have begun to reproach the Church in that Church performs this operate badly. From perspective of the French materialists, it’s inconceivable to know Christianity historical past, it’s inconceivable to know the explanation and meanings of combat between spiritual sects throughout interval of the constructing of mechanism for spiritual management. With perspective of French materialists, all beliefs of those sects are solely completely different sorts of delusions; all representatives of those sects are fools merely.

For my part, individuals are not so idiot that to have interaction by ineffective affair throughout of many centuries. Based on calculations of Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin, faith ought to die off way back, as a result of faith is “opium for folks”. For my part, unique “opium” is the parable about communism. Follow didn’t confirmed the theoretical forecasts concerning the of dying of faith, which means Marxist idea prove as false idea. Opposite to those forecasts, there’s the flourishing of faith after the collapse of socialism in Russia, destroyed temples are restored and new temples are constructed right this moment, in style sects come up in Russia, for instance, Hare Krishna and Protestant sects. The which means of the executive and spiritual management is that they’ve served as a basis for the constructing of feudal formation, who has grew to become a brand new progressive step within the growth of society in contrast with slaveholding formation. Feudal formation was “golden age” within the historical past of faith, after that which means of faith has decreased slightly. The Marxism served in fingers of Bolsheviks solely as justification for theft of the wealthy courses. The atheism served in fingers of Bolsheviks solely as justification for theft of orthodox church. To rob grew to become merely somebody after the theft of the church and the wealthy courses, then destruction and famine has begun in Russia. An impression is made that theft is the one enterprise which leaders of Bolsheviks had been in a position to do fantastic earlier than the October revolution. Joseph Stalin plundered banks, and Vladimir Lenin lived completely overseas on this stolen cash earlier than the October revolution. And Bolsheviks suppressed honest discontent of the folks robbed by Bolsheviks by the use of Cheka terror after the October revolution.
