Role.


Those who have sold their souls and embraced evil (mostly in rock music) assume the role of the devil.

This is an attempt to legitimize their activities.

They play the role of the tempter, the tester of our faith.

But this is not the truth.
Their activities are in no way sanctioned by God.

It is not a game of temptation and damnation.

They lie, they cheat, they deceive and mislead you.
They even move and control you.

This is not in any way a fair fight.

There is no devil in reality.

So how can he make war with God?

They are deluded.

Pray to God and He will deliver you.

The only Reality is God's Love.

Save Me!


I'm here to save you.

What from?

Not from the devil.

There is no devil in reality.

But from devil worshippers.

What devil worshippers?

The devil worshippers that are hidden in our popular culture: our rock music, our movies, our T.V., our literature, our sports.....

I can't see any devil worshippers.

No.  They are cleverly disguised and concealed.

Think heavy metal.

Think flames.

Think the sign of the devil.

Think horns.

These things are there to be seen.

So don't deny that devil worship is real.

It doesn't do any harm.

Yes it does.
It poisons you.  It curses you.  It tempts you.  It leads you astray.  It distracts you.  It damns you.

I am here to save you.

Save me!

Pray to God to rescue you.

Pray to God to deliver you from evil.

Pray to God to adopt you as His child.

Pray to God to guide you and bring you home.

But most of all:

Open your heart.

Wedding Ring.


A married man may have sex an average of two to three times a week.

A single man may have sex less than once a week.

And yet the single man is labelled dissolute.

While the married man is respectable.

Work that out.

Concessions.


If we enthrone the heart above all other things we will automatically make concessions according to understanding.

This means not rigidly applying rules.

To make rules and enforce them with rewards and punishments is legalism.

And it was this legalism that Jesus criticized in the Pharisees and Sadducees.

But what is our law if we do not apply the rules?

Our law is Love.

And Love is its own reward.

Peace.


Peace comes from God.

It surpasses understanding.

It descends upon us.

It is a blessing.

It banishes turmoil.

It calms the heart.

Peace comes from God.

Shed Your Light.


Father of fathers.

Great holy One.

Breath of Life.

Author of being.

Come to us now.

Shed your Light.


The world is in darkness.

We stumble and fall.

We fight with each other.

We build ramparts and walls.

Come to us now.

Shed your Light.


Everyone's searching.

We look for the star.

But no one knows how

or where it will come.

Come to us now.

Shed your Light.


The harvest is ripe.

The time is upon us.

We anticipate blindly

the end of the night.

Come to us now.

Shed your Light.


Fit us for service.

Spread your arms wide.

Help us to gather

all who are wise.

Come to us now.

Shed your Light.

Manipulation.


The evil forces in our world will use fear in the Churches to attack any challenge to their power.

If, for example, you might claim that homosexuals go to heaven, they will use the moral condemnation in the Churches to punish you and then tell you God will send you to hell.

This is a tactic which intensifies the fear in the Churches and moves us further away from a solution.

The actual problem is fear of God.

The scriptures say to love God and love your neighbor.

So overcome your fear and love God with all your heart.

Moralizing.


When it comes to sex and homosexuality the oldest generations still moralize out of fear.

They still have a strong image of God as a moral arbiter.

And their fear makes them violent.
They punish sex out of fear.

Fear of hell and damnation.

A fear that was drummed into them as children.

This is not God's doing.
But it happens in the Church.

This is the source of the violence experienced by Jesus in the Temple.

Jesus told The Parable of The Wicked Tenants who beat and killed God's messengers.
This was their fear acting.
They were so afraid of God and damnation that they crucified Jesus in order to maintain their position of privilege and their righteousness before God.
Because if they lost their righteousness they thought they would lose their blessing, their grace under God.

Their fear made them test Jesus.
And eventually their fear made them kill him.

So, rather than attacking them or threatening them - which would trigger their fears - we should be comforting them, helping them to see that if you engage in sex or homosexual activity you will not lose God's blessing.

This also applies to their good works.

Their fear makes them defend their good works even when they have been shown to be harmful to others.

This is their fear of losing God's blessing which would mean hell forever.

So, despite what they may say, unconsciously they are ruled by fears.

Pray for them to overcome their fears and open their hearts.

Karma.


The Hippies and the generations that follow them have been cursed, sabotaged, and led astray by their rock stars, celebrities, and sporting heroes.

This influence has resulted in untold suffering in the form of drug addiction, divorce, depression, guilt, and suicide.

The suffering that we have experienced far outweighs any evil we may have done.

This has created  a huge karmic surplus which is enough to save even the most depraved and wicked souls.

It is enough in fact to save even those who caused the suffering itself.

These people turned against God and Jesus because their priests and ministers told them (incorrectly) that God was a severe moral arbiter and judge, especially in matters of sex, and homosexuality in particular.

So they went to the opposition - the devil - believing that he would grant them sex, fame, and fortune in return for their souls and the dirty deeds which they believe to be his work in the world.

But there is no devil in reality, only God's Love.

So far from getting us into hell as they assumed they have guaranteed our entry into heaven.

And there is such a gigantic surplus of good karma that they can even enter heaven themselves.

God forgives our debts and transgressions.

He does not punish us for our sins.

So share your good karma with others.

And help create heaven on earth.

Cursed.


The diabolical influences which come from our popular culture - the backwards curses of Satanic magic - tempt and betray us daily.

The evil machinations of those who worship "He who deceives the whole world" lead us to the very gates of hell.

But there is no devil in reality.
No hell to go to.

God is the only supernatural being.
And He does not punish us.
So there can be no hell.

But the damage remains.
The effects of drugs, divorce, hate, and suicide.....

And we don't even know it.

Unplug your earphones.
Turn off your phones.

And begin to live at last.

Aquarius.


The foam on the waves of the sea

is said to come from

the severed genitals of the Sky God Uranus

who was castrated by his son Saturn.

It gave birth to

Aphrodite (Venus)

the goddess of beauty and love.


In the Age of Aquarius

this myth will be reversed:

Venus and Saturn

will combine

to make Uranus

whole and fertile

once again.

O.K.?


So who made devil worship O.K.?

Why do girls and boys wear devil horns and think it's cool?

It's associated with extreme pleasure-seeking and having a good time.

This seems O.K..

But devil worship?

Why would they think that is O.K.?

They have been fooled and brainwashed to such an extent that they don't really know what they're doing.

They think it's just a joke.

But it's not.

It's not an alternative religion either.

The covert Satanism in rock music and entertainment does untold damage.

It poisons you and leads you astray.

It has even spread to literature and sports, movies and T.V..

Why is everything going up in flames?

You have been cursed and sabotaged.

In the hope that you will go to hell.

But there is no hell in reality.

God does not punish us.

But the damage remains.

We suffer.

So do not say that the devil is O.K..

What the devil stands for is not O.K..

It is darkness and evil and suffering.

And it should be avoided at all costs.

Subtle.


"Now the serpent was more subtil than any other beast of the field which the Lord God had made."  Genesis 3:1a (KJB)*

We are subject to subtle influences working through the collective unconscious and the spirit and psychic realms.

These evil influences affect the way we think, feel, and act.

To be unaware of them is to be controlled by them.

They make you follow, buy, and watch.

They make you bad.

They make you sin and transgress.

They make you fxxk.

They make you sado-masochistic.

They make you suffer.

They distract you and poison you.

Pray to God to deliver you.


[*King James Bible.]

Others.


Many religious leaders emphasize serving others as an important principle of their respective religions.

While it is true that thinking of others is an integral part of spiritual development it can seem onerous if we embrace this practice as a moral obligation.

A better way to approach this is through love.

Love of others automatically brings unselfishness and circumvents any bitterness or resentment that can accrue when we feel we are obliged to serve others.

So, rather than embracing unselfishness as a mental principle, we can open our hearts to others and experience the joy of love.

Quality of Life.


Our world is ruled by corporate plutocrats whose inhuman philosophy oppresses everyone.

God is about quality of life.
The life that comes from the heart.

So we do not seek to depose or destroy our corporate masters but to touch their hearts.  And by touching their hearts to change their philosophy.  To move them from the inhuman to the human.

For these men and women are driven by fear:
Fear of poverty, fear of loss, fear of failure, fear of justice.....

If they had a seed of faith they could change from profit to providing, from domination to service.....

But they say, "God has forsaken the earth."
And everyone suffers.

Pray that they open their hearts to their workers and employees and treat them more like sons and daughters.

Only then will the world be saved.

Omnipotent.


In a recent article a Progressive Christian asked:

What if God is not omnipotent?

Whether God is omnipotent or not He will not force anyone to do His will.  Participation is voluntary.

"The word of our Lord came to Zechariah, saying: Thus says the Lord of hosts: Render true judgments, show kindness and mercy to one another; do not oppress the widow, the orphan, the alien, or the poor; and do not devise evil in your hearts against one another.  But they refused to listen, and turned a stubborn shoulder, and stopped their ears in order not to hear.  They made their hearts adamant in order not to hear the law and the words that the Lord of hosts had sent by his spirit through the former prophets."  Zechariah 7:8-12a (NRSV)

So if God prompts us to do something but we don't want to do it there is nothing He can do.

So much of what is taught in church goes in one ear and out the other and, even if we proclaim something with our lips, if we will not listen there is nothing God can do.

God does not punish us.

"'And this is the judgement, that the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their deeds were evil.'"  John 3:19 (NRSV)

Tears for Willy Loman.


The inhuman brutality of our corporate culture, a culture which reduces human beings to work units and makes workers expendable in pursuit of greater and greater profits, a culture which has created the greatest disparity between rich and poor in human history, is tearing our world apart.

But no one can do anything about it because everyone is controlled by the media which the corporate plutocrats own and use to further their interests.

Nothing will happen until workers are so stressed and disturbed that they begin to die.

And even then will there be tears for Willy Loman?

The Water Carrier.


Everyone is looking for the Water Carrier.

But no one seems to know what or who it is.

Jesus quoted the scripture, "'Out of the believer's heart shall flow rivers of living water.'"  John 7:38b (NRSV)

What is this living water?

Love.
Unconditional Love.

Our heart is the jar (Egyptian hieroglyph ab) and our love is the water.

So we are Water Carriers if we open our hearts and love without fear.

AIDS.


AIDS made the fear of sexual immorality, particularly in relation to homosexual acts, ten times worse than it was.

The Churches and society in general are so afraid that God has punished homosexuality that they have become moral hypocrites and violent opponents.

But this is just the modern equivalent of stoning.

Jesus refused to condemn the woman caught in adultery.
He said, "'Let anyone among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.'"  John 8:7b (NRSV)

So it is time that we recognize what we are doing.

And refuse to punish homosexual acts.

A Rock and a Hard Place.


We are caught between a rock and a hard place.

Heart and Soul.


Many seekers assume that our souls are in our heads - a kind of consciousness.

This is because our eyes are in our heads.
And we have been trained from childhood to identify with our minds.

But, as Eastern meditation practices will show, our selves, or our souls, are not our thoughts.

Our souls, or Divine Sparks, are in our hearts.

This is the part of us which loves.

And seeks God.

To realize the union of Lover and Beloved.

Concensus.


Among Progressive Christians there is general consensus on many issues:

1.  The Bible is a collection of human records of men's and women's experience of God.  It is not the literal word of God and much of it is poetry and metaphor.

2.  The story of Adam and Eve is a myth which was created to answer questions about human existence.

3.  The angry God of the Old Testament is a primitive conception of God which projects attributes of worldly authority onto God.

4.  The Virgin Birth is a myth which was invented to emphasize the importance of Jesus.  Many ancient figures had miraculous birth stories.

5.  Jesus was a human being.
He was not God incarnate.

6.  Many of the miracle stories are metaphorical tales created to show the divinity of Jesus.

7.  Jesus' teachings about love and forgiveness are the core of his message.

8.  The Resurrection was a spiritual resurrection not a physical resuscitation.

9.  Jesus is not returning to judge humanity.
We are not in the End Times.

10. God does not punish us.
Therefore there can be no hell.

11. God does not reject gay people.
He accepts them as they are.
