Putting the Bottom Back In.


When Jesus preached forgiveness and love he well and truly blew the bottom out of the Pharisees' religion of rewards and punishments.

But after Jesus was crucified his followers and priests put the bottom back in.

I believe that Jesus taught that everyone was forgiven and loved by God, that no one was condemned, and no one would perish.

But later writers, beginning with St. Paul, returned to the crude religion of rewards and punishments, including heaven and hell.

This was reinforced at Nicaea after Christianity became the state religion of Rome.

The inclusion of The Book of Revelation as the last word in the Bible was the last straw.

I believe that God punishes no one.

Therefore there is no Judgement - Personal or General.

And there is no hell.

But no doubt if we preach this religion of forgiveness and love the powers and authorities of this world will seek to reinstate the carrot and stick religion of rewards and punishments, heaven and hell.

Because it is this religion which ensures their power over the masses and maintains their position of privilege.

False Premise.


Satanism is based on a false premise.

The primary assumption of Satanism is that God is harsh and judgemental.

They say He is a bastard.

This notion originates with the Church which teaches an angry, punitive God.

Neither of them know God.

God is wholly good.
God is benevolent.
God does not punish anyone.

Therefore there can be no Judgement - Personal or General.

And there is no hell.

So Satanism is based on a false premise.

Positives.


Accentuate the positives.

Satanism in rock music pushes the negatives - the negatives of your star sign, the negatives of your generational group.

If you listen to them or follow their prompt you are feeding the negative side of your personality and this induces intense suffering.

You will hate those who love you.
You will cheat on your partner.
You will break off relationships.
You will indulge in vices.
You will blame the innocent.

All these things are hidden in rock music.

But if you accentuate the positives your life will improve dramatically.

You will appreciate your loved ones.
You will be grateful for your blessings.
You will be faithful to your partner.
You will discover hidden talents.
You will experience love and happiness.

So don't listen to the negative messages in rock music - overt or covert.

You deserve better.

Find the positives.

And feed them.

If you pray God will help you.

The Truth.


Many fear God's wrath.

Many fear judgement and hell.

But this is not the truth.

The truth is that God loves you.

No matter what you have done.

No matter who you have been.

God loves you.

And He is waiting for you.

Waiting to bless you.

And lead you Home.

Our Corporate Masters.


Not only does Satanism feed the negatives of each generational group but they corrupt our corporate masters.

At the Barcelona Olympics the Opening Ceremony included something called The Devil's Rain which showed all manner of evil and horrors from hell.  This was conducted by Japanese rock musician Ryuichi Sakamoto.

At the London Olympics the Opening Ceremony featured the (evil) Rings of Power and a segment called Pandemonium which is the name of the capital of hell in Milton's Paradise Lost.  It also depicted cigar smoking plutocrats from the Industrial Revolution.  The rest was rock music.

These are evil things designed by the guilty to tempt those in positions of power - i.e. those rich enough to make up the audiences at those Olympic Ceremonies.

And I'm sure there are many other ways in which Satanists in our culture corrupt older generations.

This is why the world is becoming darker, more violent, colder, more unjust and unforgiving every day.

And no one seems to know why.

Scapegoat.


It is the objective of some in our society to make of gays and lesbians a scapegoat.

It is not difficult to persecute a minority group especially when there is fear surrounding them.

The persistence of AIDS makes gays and lesbians a soft target.

So don't listen to those who tell you gays and lesbians are to blame for our ills.

Gays are no more to blame than anyone else.

And God does not discriminate.

Mercy.


Jesus said, "'Go and learn what this means, "I desire mercy not sacrifice." For I have come to call not the righteous but sinners.'"  Matthew 9:13 (NRSV)

What could this mean?

It means that God does not judge us.
He wants us to show mercy.
As He does.

And He does not judge sinners either.
He shows them mercy.

So no one is condemned.

The Compensations of Art.


When life lets us down and we experience disappointment and failure art can be a real compensation.

The joys of art include stimulation of the intellect and the imagination.

Art can help us understand life.

Art can move us to tears.

Art can touch our hearts.

So we should not underestimate the value of art in our quest.

Art can be a real compensation.

The Way of Peace.


When Jesus was arrested in the Garden of Gethsemane one of his followers drew his sword and cut off the ear of the slave of the High Priest.

"Then Jesus said to him, 'Put your sword back into its place, for all who take the sword will perish by the sword.'"  Matthew 26:52 (NRSV)

So it is clear that Jesus' way is not the way of the sword.

This contradicts all who follow The Book of Revelation and all who practise Spiritual Warfare.

It contradicts even the theory of a Just War.

So, if we are not to fight against evil, what are we to do?

""You have heard that it was said, "An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth."  But I say to you, Do not resist an evildoer.  But if anyone strikes you on the right cheek, turn the other also.'"  Matthew 5:38,39 (NRSV)

This is Jesus' teaching.

It is the way of non-violent benevolence.

It is the way of peace.

The Light.


"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it."  John 1:5 (NRSV)

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

And what is the Light but Love.

Pass It On.


To those of you who believe me when I say that rock music is Satanism I say this:  Pass it on!

Tell your family, tell your friends, tell anyone who will listen.

Because this is the great secret of our time: that rock bands since the 1960s have sold their souls and poisoned three generations of youth.

Satanic curses and negative suggestion are hidden in all rock music.

So take out your earplugs.

And throw away your C.D.s.

Turn to God.

And He will heal you.

Satanism Today.


You may wonder what relevance Satanism has to your life today.

You may think that it is marginal.

But Satanism is rife in the music and entertainment industries.

This curse is hidden in much of our popular culture.

So watch out for: flames, black, death, darkness, night, skulls, skeletons, graves, snakes, spiders, drugs, daggers, demons, horns, Hitler, hell.....

These things betray the Satanism which is hidden beneath the surface.

These influences will drag you down.
They will poison and sabotage you.
They will stab you in the back.

So be aware that Satanism is common in our culture today.

Heaven.


Contrary to popular opinion we do not have to earn our place in Heaven.

God puts us in Heaven out of sympathy for our suffering on earth.

And everyone suffers on earth.

So, rather than being excluded, gays and lesbians are the most qualified for Heaven because of the great suffering they have experienced on earth.

Your Sins are Forgiven.


How many times did Jesus say, "Your sins are forgiven"?

And how many times did he tell parables about the Lord writing off debts?

In The Parable of the Unforgiving Servant (Matthew 18:22-35) a slave is forgiven his debt but refuses to forgive another slave who is in debt to him, for which he is rebuked.  Jesus likens this to the Kingdom of Heaven.

So, rather than battling against evil and sin and trying to destroy them, we should be forgiving them and telling them that God will show them mercy.

God's mercy is infinite.

And His forgiveness is eternal.

Immigrants.


When I think of the thousands of immigrants in our country I can see that the fear in our population affects them negatively.

Chinese immigrants, Indian immigrants, and people from many other countries, including Muslims, are frozen out of our culture.

They are outsiders.
And it's cold outside.

So, rather than considering them a threat, we should open our hearts to them and make for them a new home.

A True Home.


When I think of all the millions of people trapped in refugee camps in our world I pray that we in the West can open our hearts to them.

This would mean that we don't merely provide a house for them but we make a place for them in our hearts.

Then we would provide them a true home.

Home.


It is not sufficient merely to believe that Jesus is the Christ.

It is not sufficient merely to confess that Jesus is King.

It is not sufficient merely to serve God with your lips.

It is not sufficient merely to obey the rules.

It is not sufficient merely to do good works out of fear.

It is not sufficient merely to love your family and friends.

It is not sufficient merely to turn up on Sundays.

What is required is a commitment to Jesus' teachings of love and forgiveness for everyone.

God punishes no one.

He loves and redeems evil people and apostates.

And we must do the same.

Then we will be Home.

What Makes the World Go Round?


What is it that makes the world what it is?

It is not money, or power, or violence.

What makes the world go round is fear.

Fear drives those with money.

Fear makes people seek power.

Fear makes people violent.

If they had a tiny seed of faith they would be free of avarice, lust, and anger.

But they say, "God has forsaken the earth."

And war rages on.

The Way of the World.


It is the way of the world that people with money and power and people who achieve success consider themselves superior to or worthy of greater entitlements than others.

They set themselves up as elites and exploit the most vulnerable in our society.

And through their ownership of the media they dehumanize the poor and rationalize their privileges.

They will even modify religion to suit their evil designs.

Malcolm X said that if you watch the media you will end up hating the oppressed and loving the oppressors.

It is ten times worse today.

So don't just absorb what is put before you and swallow their rationalizations.

Jesus said that the way of the world is evil.

And they crucified him for it.

Status Quo.


If we merely reinforce the Status Quo Christianity will die out and the world will be left in darkness at the prey of evil people.

We cannot afford to just do things the way they have always been done.

This way has been rejected.

We must invoke a more compassionate God.
A God who forgives.
A God who loves us.


We must banish the God of judgement and vengeance.
We must forget the God of anger and hate.

God does not repay us tit-for-tat for our sins.

This is the way of the world.
It is not the way of God.

God is bigger than that.

He forgives our mistakes.

And He loves us like a Father.

Virgo/Scorpio.


What we have to realize is that each consecutive generation has been sabotaged in their own way.

Generation X have been cursed with the negatives of their generational astrological signs - Virgo and Scorpio.

The negative traits of Virgo are: destructive criticism, holier than thou, hypocrisy. squeamishness, schismatism, judgementalism. and perfectionism.

The negative traits of Scorpio are: violence, intimidation, lies, criminality, jealousy, possessiveness, competitiveness, hate, obsessiveness, vindictiveness, retaliation, and evil.

But Virgo and Scorpio have positive traits.

The positive traits of Virgo are: virtue, meticulousness, discrimination, manners, neatness, cleanliness, work, helping, love of animals (pets), love of the environment (green), analysis, health, exercise, diet, and logic.

The positive traits of Scorpio are: passion, transformation, concentration, loyalty, depth, psychology, and energy.

They are intuitive, even psychic.

It is possible for them to manifest their birth signs positively.

I pray for that.

Generation X.


The truth about Generation X is that they resorted to evil and violence to win.

Rejecting the Baby-Boomers' ideals of peace and love they set about disproving it by force.

And they conspired with Satan to achieve it.

They were infatuated with the devil and the dark side.

They bragged that they were pure evil.

Their entertainment was horror and violence.

They were blasphemous and they were bad.

And they tried to lie and cheat their way out of it.

But this supernatural duplicity is not the truth.

They cannot lie to God.

They cannot cheat Heaven.

They are living backwards.

And they are suckers for Satanism.

So sooner or later they will have to eat humble pie.

They have massive egos.

They are moral relativists.

And they are spiritual cowards.

So there you have it:

The truth about Generation X.

For Your Information.


I inform you of the Satanism which is in our rock music and our entertainment.

A trend which began in the 1960s.

And has expanded into a world-wide web of evil.

What you do with that information is up to you.

The Pub.


Every time you go to the pub or a dance venue you are subjected to a barrage of Satanic rock music.

Even if the bands are not openly Satanic their songs and videos contain subliminal messages which sabotage our efforts and our ideals.

Fire(hell), the devil, horns, darkness, death, blasphemy, violence, cruelty, the Beast, anything upside-down or backwards, black, magic, daggers, evil.....

All these things are hidden in the music and videos.

So keep your eyes open.

And watch out.

If you don't want to be brainwashed and controlled.

Happiness.


The Dalai Lama says that the purpose of life is happiness.

But my experience is that the more you pursue happiness the more it slips away from you - like a mirage.

Certainly if you seek happiness in material things you will be richer materially but you will lose contact with your own soul.

We are happier with less.

The purpose of life is love.

Or more precisely to learn how to love.

Happiness is a side effect.

The way of the heart leads to both love and compassion.

This is the light of the Buddha and of Jesus.

Your Neighbor.


"'"You shall love your neighbor as yourself."'"  Mark 12:31 (NRSV)

Because your neighbor is a human being,
just like you;

With hopes and dreams,
just like you;

Who has suffered and whose heart is broken,
just like you.

Weep.


The world we live in is becoming a more and more violent, hard, cold, and dark place.

The President of the Philippines has said that he would be happy to slaughter the country's 3 million drug addicts.

For which he was invited to the White House.

The President of Chechnya has said he wants to wipe out the gay population of the country by the beginning of Ramadan (May 26).

These things are not even reported in Murdoch's media.

And those people who have heard don't seem to care.

Conditions are just like Germany in the 1930s.

They're only Jews.

They're only drug addicts.

They're only gays.

What does it have to so with us?

Paths to God.


The bane of the world's religions is that one of the many paths to God will harden into rules to which are attached rewards and punishments, heaven and hell.

This inspires fear which assumes that all the other paths are in error and therefore lead to hell.

This makes them aggressive and violent.

They vie for supremacy.

But the truth is that there are many pathways to God and we should not assume that our path is the only way.

This would suggest that tolerance is the hallmark of the Aquarian Age.

We must allow people to find God in their own way.

Many Ways.


An ancient Pagan text says that your experience of the Divine depends on which god's chariot you rose up to the heavens in.

The Bhagavad-Gita says that there are many Yogas or paths to God.

Within each religion there are many ways:

Good works.
Asceticism - or self-denial.
Knowledge (Study).
Prayer (Devotion).
Compassion.
Altruism - or Selflessness.
Meditation - or Contemplation.
Morality (Honesty etc.).

But the greatest is the way of:

Love.

Which leads to all others.

Forgiveness.


How can we bring an end to all feuds?

Forgiveness.

There can be no resolution without forgiveness.

In South Africa the Truth and Reconciliation Commission was built on forgiveness.

Without this forgiveness there would have been festering wounds which could have seen a bloodbath.

So forgiveness is vital.

Without forgiveness there can be no peace.

Tai/Peace.


The 11th hexagram of the I-Ching is Tai/Peace.

This corresponds to the first month of the year which is February/March.

The Chinese New Year is always on the Aquarius new moon.

So this hexagram has a close association with the 11th sign of the Zodiac - Aquarius.

In the commentary on this hexagram it is stated that it represents an end to all feuds.

And this is great news.

It means feuds between individuals, family members, generations, political positions, nations, denominations, religions, races, sexes, even humans' feuds with God will be resolved.

So the Age of Aquarius will see an unprecedented period of peace on earth.

All humanity will be reconciled to each other and to God.

This is the Rainbow - which represents peace between God and humanity.
