Here are a few characteristics of toxic religion:

1. Lack of intellect and a non-intelligent approach to knowledge and the world around you.

2. Absence of a personal and present relationship with God. A disproportionate focus on communal comparative behaviour.

3. Excessive guilt and self-condemnation.

4. Fear. 

5. An inordinate focus on works and the belief that blessings are earned by service and activity. 

6. A suspension of personal responsibility and the outsourcing of direction and decisions to leaders.

7. Tradition and the elevation of culture over basic humanity.
