Warnings from history

 

Those respected educators, prophets, reformers, philosophers, theologists, writers and many more people have kept their reputation and respect of the entire free thinking world to this day due to the struggle for truth. Those light bearers hold the credit for the truth, ethics and moral in this world.

The drama between powerful and superficial christianity and people who stood for a spiritual, inner experience of  faith is almost 2000 years long. Consequences were always prosecution, torture and the cruelest death. The powerful religious community has claimed authority through state (Roman) and made way for religious dictatorship through the state very early in human history. Individual strength and perseverance of people who witnessed the faith with their lives presented great danger to those who ensured  their existence, power, reputation and wealth through faith.

Those respected educators, prophets, reformers, philosophers, theologists, writers and many more people have kept their reputation and respect of the entire free thinking world to this day due to the struggle for truth.
