My generation rejected the manipulative fear/guilt message of the traditional Church in favor of at first eastern religions and yoga, and later New Age Spirituality, which is their western descendant.
Now there is confusion.
With the help of Satanism in music, entertainment, and media we scarcely know what we are saying at all.
We chase after false gods: success, power, pleasure....
But there is a rear guard action that is seeking the original message of Jesus: unconditional love, forgiveness, peace, and social justice....
This is a holistic message - not the warring factions of dualism.
We threaten the power of the Church (as Jesus did).
For in centralizing Jesus message of love we take away the weapons of power: fear, guilt, triumphalism, rewards and punishments that are in the doctrines of original sin, salvation, redemption, and judgment.
All these perversions of Jesus message are rejected in favor of the real message of Jesus: Love.
