    It doesn't seem to work that way.

    It requires a reduction of intelligence, a shutting down the curious mind, to conform to the orders of the men who own them tell them to.

    Religion costs you money, self esteem, and your identity.   A price far too high to pay to play pretend with other adults!

    Beliefs NEVER make you more intelligent.  Study and exercising your powers of analysis can help with that goal.  But simple belief does NOT involve meticulous analysis or exercising of your logic abilities.

    It can help us act with wisdom if we listen to Him and obey, in the new system after Armageddon, we'll be brought back to perfection and then we will be more intelligent. When Jesus was baptised all of his pre-existence in heaven was revealed to him, all he did with his Father Jehovah, eons of time and all he knew and did downloaded into a human brain; think on how much we'll learn living forever on earth; to learn about it go to jw.org and use all available and also request a study if you want, all is free to all.

    Yes , because GOD ask us to ponder on HIS creation through our bodies and soul and to ponder on the creation of HIS universe ,by using our intelligent that GOD bestow on us , in the form of power of imagination.

    Believers are given wisdom (it is one of the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit). Wisdom essentially means “good judgement”. You know why these celebrities keep marrying and divorcing? They do not have wisdom in choosing a spouse. Not good judgement=no wisdom. Wisdom elevates the things of god to the intellect.

    I believe, but don't go to a brick and mortar church....AND [ King James Bible

    The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. ] I don't want traditions of men that make void the Word, that most get from a brick and mortar church...AND His Word is pregnant it grows and builds upon itself as you learn......

    No, just believing is not enough you have search for his truth as well though the Scriptures as well, please read

    John 5:39 You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me,
