Do we prevent somebody being hurt by superstition or faith by rejecting and challenging those things? 

Is it mistaken to support organised religion in membership or donations?

If people do good because they are human, not because God prompts them then is it right to risk giving God any credit when they alone own their good?

AFFIRMATIONS

Affirmations are assertions designed to reform your thinking and your feelings by re-programming your mind to be more positive, confident and accepting of the faults you have and those of others simply by frequent repetition. If you tell yourself something often enough you will believe it and make it come true. They can fulfil the need that often draws people to superstitious practices like prayer and spell casting. Again you must deny free will which says you are not all programmable so that you can believe you can program yourself and control your psychological future.
 
Before you fall asleep your mind is passive and relaxed and more open to being programmed by you. So before you fall asleep you can use affirmations like, “My happiness is in my hands alone and I will be happy.” God has no relevance to you when you can improve yourself by conditioning your mind. Avoid that encumbrance.
 
Some examples of beneficial affirmations follow. You could put them inside books and cases that you use frequently so that when you see them you can reinforce the programming by reading them and also trying to work up the feeling that they are working.

The only thing I fear is how I will feel about bad happenings and bad people. Nobody and nothing can unnerve me unless I let them so there is nothing to fear. I am perfectly safe.

What I believe about myself is what counts and I do not fear what others say for I am a good person and perfect in my own way.

I cannot fail to do good. Even when it goes wrong I still meant to get it right and so I love myself for I am the most important and wonderful person in my life.

Everything that happens to me is helpful to me. I can make advantages out of anything and I feel safe.

I deserve nothing but blessings and I will take all the blessings that come and because I love myself they will come and keep coming and this love makes others cherish me and shower blessings on me for because I love myself I value everyone I meet.

I am loved and I am cherished by all for even human evil is just unbalanced love and a mistake of the essence of misperception so everybody loves me and I love everybody and wish them every success.

I have no faults and I am perfect even if others cannot see it for any faults are the way I am made and are not my faults and nobody else’s are theirs’ so there is nothing to forgive or be angry about.

I am my God and there is no other and I make my own Heaven by feeding on love for this God I see in the mirror every morning.
