>Atheism, rightly understood, is the necessary expression of a spirituality that has accomplished itself and exhausted its religious possibilities. This late form of world-feeling and world-image which preludes our "second religiousness" is universally a negation of the religious in us. The Megalopolitan is irreligious; this is part of his being, a mark of his historical position. Bitterly as he may feel the inner emptiness and poverty, earnestly as he may long to be religious, it is out of his power to be so. All religiousness in the Megalopolis rests upon self-deception.

>In this very century, I prophesy, the century of scientific-critical Alexandrianism, of the great harvests, of the final formulations, a new element of inwardness will arise to overthrow the will-to-victory of science. This is the path to "second religiousness," which is the sequel and not the preface of the Culture. Men dispense with proof, desire only to believe and not to dissect. The individual renounces by laying aside books. The Culture renounces by ceasing to manifest itself in high scientific intellects.

>Classical philosophy had exhausted its ground by about 150 b.c. From that time on, "knowledge" was no longer a continually tested and augmented stock, but a belief therein, due basically to force of habit, but still able to convince, thanks to an old and well-tried methodology.

>The material of the Second Religiousness is simply that of the first, genuine, young religiousness — only otherwise experienced and expressed. It starts with Rationalism's fading out in helplessness, then the forms of the Springtime become visible, and finally the whole world of the primitive religion, which had receded before the grand forms of the early faith, returns to the foreground, powerful, in the guise of the popular syncretism that is to be found in every Culture at this phase.

>Belief in program was the mark and the glory of our grandfathers — in our grandsons it will be a proof of provincialism. In its place is developing even now the seed of a new resigned piety, sprung from tortured conscience and spiritual hunger, whose task will be to found a new Hither-side that looks for secrets instead of steel-bright concepts and in the end will find them in the deeps of the "Second Religiousness."

Then your correct; but perceived gain opposes conceived God: God and Mammon are everywhere at odds- and it's actually capital that *prevents* the furtherance of many traditionally religious objectives.

But what Jesus wanted was a liberation from this, why focus on how the man was appropriated for power? There are so many ways religion can be interpreted, why do you have to have an autistic set opinion on everything where everything is always the same no matter what? Religion can and has been used for liberation, it was Christian belief that awakened the class consciousness in John Ball:
>When Adam delved and Eve span, Who was then the gentleman? From the beginning all men by nature were created alike, and our bondage or servitude came in by the unjust oppression of naughty men. For if God would have had any bondmen from the beginning, he would have appointed who should be bond, and who free. And therefore I exhort you to consider that now the time is come, appointed to us by God, in which ye may (if ye will) cast off the yoke of bondage, and recover liberty.

Good and evil are concepts that came from humans evolving from animals into modern men, when man recognised what good and evil was is when man became inherently evil from his capability to commit evil on purpose. It’s our own intelligence that damns us. However, morality is not straightforward as many cultures have different ideas what is moral or not. The basic philosophy of the popular religions informed the idealistic moral consciousness in the majority of world, thus even if you are absolutely not religious religion has affected you. You can argue that all the popular religions are part of God’s plan.
