The New Paradigm includes a sensible attitude towards sex in general and homosexuality in particular.
The ridiculous attitude of traditional Christianity towards sex is no longer tenable.
To preach that the body and sex are the enemies of the spirit is not sustainable in the 21st Century.
Sex is a natural function of our bodies and the pleasure experienced during sex can hardly be said to be against the will of God.
The time has come to leave these attitudes behind and teach our children to celebrate their sexuality as part of their love for their partner as it was intended.
Homosexuality is no different from heterosexuality.
This is what we should preach.

Parenting, education, and psychology are all oriented towards making people fit in.
But fit in with what?
The world is a horrible place.
Should we be horrible as well?
We are ruled by corrupt corporations.
Should we be corrupt as well?
Psychological health should not be equated with conformity.
Integrity, honesty, wisdom, and love are admirable qualities which should be cultivated in our children.
Unfortunately the world does not value these qualities.
But we cannot afford to just fit in.

What people do when you have a problem or something goes wrong in your life is they take the easy way out.
They blame the victim.
They rationalize their guilt.
They take the line of least resistance.
They take the course of action which least disturbs their comfort.
They put it in the too hard basket.
And if the worst comes to the worst they will just ignore you.
It's always your own fault.
"I'm alright so what have you done wrong?"
So don't expect too much help.
Only God is reliable.
Pray to God.
And He will hear.
Trust in Him.
And He will deliver you.

Rather than aspiring to righteousness we should be aspiring to goodness.
Righteousness can bring with it a sense of moral superiority and condemnation of others.
It is these things that Jesus criticized in the Pharisees and Sadducees.
To aspire to goodness, however, is to banish all harmful thoughts and actions. It is to be totally benevolent. It is to wish the best for others.
It is to give. It is to love.
Goodness softens the heart and opens it to others.
So that we may love God and love our neighbors.

The light that comes from God enables us to see the truth.
The illusions and the lies which fill the darkness are swept away.
No longer do we believe their backwards lies: devils in heaven and saints in hell.
But we see the beauty of God:
Forgiveness. Mercy. Goodness. Love.
We experience Love.
And spontaneous Joy.
We are touched by Peace.
And a glimpse of Heaven.

He arrived on the scene driving a black Lamborghini with 666 on the number plate.
He was dressed all in black with dark Ray Ban shades to hide his eyes.
He aspired to money.
The root of all evil.
His god was the devil.
And his intentions were evil.
She strutted the streets in her little black dress.
She aspired to being his prowess.
His mistress, his partner, his driver, his mother.
She was hunting for scalps.
Power was her god.
And her intentions were pure evil.
Now they are old and their black shirts have faded.
They no longer have power.
And no one remembers.
Their children rebel.
Their masters look elsewhere.
At last they must face that their actions were evil.

There are many good people in the world.
Unfortunately Satanism in rock music, celebrity culture, and corporate ownership guarantee that evil is in control.
Good people have no power.
Good people are poisoned and distracted.
We cannot hope to make a better world while this situation continues.
Watch your eyes and ears - what you watch and what you listen to.
What is it telling you to do?
"Don't change anything, just have a good time."
Meanwhile the rich get richer and governments become more corrupt, the rich pay less tax and governments cut welfare.
Two-thirds of the world goes to bed hungry.
And war rages on.
Don't just do what your told.
Challenge the T.V., the music, the government.
While we are controlled there is no hope.
We must act now!
Otherwise the evil people who control our world will make things worse and worse until there is violent revolution.
