    Why is the general populace so afraid of a Spiritual person?

    Generally, a Spiritual person is more grounded than the average person.  There have been studies that reflect when a person has a Spiritual experience they become more stable than the norm.  Typically, a Spiritual person cannot be manipulated and therefore is a threat to organized religion and other types of organized mind controlling organizations.  My question is a quandry... why are they so afraid of someone who is Rooted and Dependable?!

    I cannot imagine where you get the idea that a spiritual person is more 'grounded' 'stable' 'rooted' ' dependable'  -  this is simply not true. 

    Spiritual people operate to a simple goal and so appear to be straight line thinking - unfortunately the straight line leads nowhere.

    @china man  Actually, there have were scientific studies done when I was a teenager that proved this to be true.  In living my life, I have witnessed the paranoia of society toward the Spiritual person.  In the state of Georgia, for instance, churches actually call emergency services to incarcerate any congregants who show signs of Spirituality.  Thank God for the Protection of God Himself!  In the future, survival will depend upon Spirituality, i.e., the ability to Hear God's Voice.  The Tribulation that is coming will take many lives.  Will we all be prepared?  I voiced this concern in 1999, in Georgia, when I left Messages with the churches there.  You are from China, so you may not have the same religious beliefs as me.  And... life is different in different parts of the world.  What is reliable and dependable to you, may not be to me, or vice versa.
    May God Bless!

    A spiritual person can see that they do not exist.  Not if their spirit is dead.  Death is available to us all.  Living is experienced by only a few.  Even though the number is growing, "broad is the road leading to destrucion, narrow is the path leading to salvation".  And this coming from one who doesn't believe in any religion.
