Soft-Left.


I aspire to being soft-left.

The heart is on the left side of the body.

To have a soft heart is the ultimate virtue.

And left-wing politics manifests compassion and justice.

This is in line with the prophets.

So I aspire to being soft-left.

Persecutions.


Jesus said that receiving the Good News was "with persecutions". (Mark 10:30)

And when people persecute you "on my account" (Matthew 5:11) you should rejoice.

This is to say that the Good News of the mercy and forgiveness of God may cause fear and violence in the world.

But the Love and faithfulness of God are better than any reactionary attacks that may occur.

We must forgive them and pray for them to overcome the fears that inspire their attacks.

For we have nothing to fear from God.

His Love is an incomparable treasure.

And nothing can take that away.

Fear.


Why does God not punish the wicked?

Because what we call wicked is inspired by fear.

The so called wicked have experienced violence and abuse in life which has caused them to corrupt themselves and do evil out of fear.

But God knows them.

And He forgives them.

Therefore there is no hell, only transformation.

The Great Depression.


It is interesting to note that the men who invented The End of History and assumed absolute power after the fall of Soviet Communism were all born during The Great Depression.

They ushered in the era of Capitalism which worships money and profit above all things.

And they have corrupted themselves to attain it.

Betraying their workers and denying climate change.

They obstruct any challenge and deceive any questioning.

They control public opinion and conspire with evil.

How could men do such things?

The answer lies in their childhood.

The fear of poverty and unemployment which dominated The Great Depression affected them profoundly as small children.

And this fear has driven them to extremes.

They never feel as if they have enough to be secure.

So they want more and more money, more and more assets, more and more possessions without limit.

But absolute power corrupts absolutely.

And their reign has seen evil consequences.

The disparity between rich and poor is at the highest level in history.

Racism and xenophobia are everywhere.

And they exploit everything.

But this generation is passing away.

A new generation of leaders is assuming power.

Hopefully they will not be as fearful having grown up in more prosperous times.

It is yet to be seen whether things will change.

But if something doesn't give we may see violent revolutions in the near future.

U-Turn.


Black, bad, the devil, hate, pure evil.....

Money, status, ego, hubris, bravado.....

35 years of lying, cheating, and stealing.

35 years of killing, stealing,and destroying.

35 years of corruption and vice.

It's time to stop the rot.

It's time to turn things around.

It's time to lift up our hearts and minds.

Charity, humility, selflessness, altruism, integrity.....

White, good, God, love, pure goodness.....

Heaven.


Gay men go to Heaven.

Of this there is no doubt.

If you still cling to archaic texts and modern prejudice then you are on the wrong side of history.

You will be consigned with the likes of slave traders and Anti-Semites to the greater condemnation.

Gays and lesbians will enter the Kingdom of Heaven before you.

And God will welcome and honor us.

So give up your fear and hate.

Gay men go to Heaven.
