Spirituality Without Sin and Salvation

Spirituality Without Sin and Salvation

Psychology and the New Paradigm for Religion

by Walter Kania, Ph.D.

About The Book

The decline and fall of old-time religion is finally a reality in the US. According to research, the number of Americans who don't affiliate with a particular religion has grown to 56 million. Nones are the second largest faith group in the US. There is a new, emerging consciousness of spirituality. It is sometimes described as a search for the sacred—the substance of one's inner journey to the Source from which all things come. The tired and worn mantra of traditional Protestant, fundamentalist, and Roman Catholic Christian theology called sin and salvation theology has served the goals of power and control for the church for centuries. It was a favorite tool of both political and ecclesiastical groups. Religions have used dogma and authoritarian notions like these to control and maintain power over human behavior. If you have bought into the regressive and punitive lair of this paradigm, you are in the clutches of an unhealthy religion.
The field of psychology provides you with a positive and healthy means of escape from the controlling, destructive concepts of a failed theology and the fraudulent psychology of mankind. The new paradigm of healthy religion shatters the shackles of the old-time and present-day religious hucksters. This new path and new paradigm will provide you with a breath of fresh air that is long overdue.
