Another Cheer for Organized Religion ...

As a postscript to this blog entry, I would like to mention one additional benefit of Organized Religion, and that is its beautiful power to influence even the shape of our rebellions from God.

One huge benefit I obtained from growing up in Organized Religion was that when I went through my (seemingly obligatory, no?) college-age rebellion from God, it was the real, almighty, triune God of the Bible, and the truly incarnate God/man Jesus Christ against whom I rebelled, and not some 3rd-rate imaginary deity.
