The Church.


Before there can be any religious revival in our world we have to make sure that the Churches are O.K..

It's no use telling people to go back to church if the Churches remain sexist, sex-phobic, homophobic, irrational, dictatorial, unreasonable, and exclusive.

That would do no one any good.

So we have to work to open the Churches to progressive ideas.

Ideas like: dialogue, openness, a healthy image of the body, acceptance of sex, Original Blessing, unconditional love, and the celebration of gay weddings etc.....

Once we have opened up the Churches to these new ideas it will be safe for people to return.

But not before.

The System.


The inequality in our world has become so extreme that now just 8 people own the equivalent of half the world's population (3.6 billion).

1 in 10 people survive on less that $2 per day.

The top 10% consume 60% of the world's resources.

And this is supported by the System:

Shareholders, banks, corporate executive bonuses, accounting procedures, financial privacy conventions,  secrecy, collusion, corruption.....

All these things contribute to inequality.

And if you challenge any of it you are told that it is privileged information protected by privacy laws.

Or you get a letter that is straight out of 1984 - Black/White, New Speak, The Ministry of Truth - designed to hide the truth.

And corporate executives claim ignorance whenever corruption or exploitation is discovered.

"We knew nothing about it."

This is done by subcontracting to companies with dubious business practices and not asking any questions.

And no one ever seems to be charged.

But the major crime is tax avoidance.

Corporations transfer internal revenue to tax havens and pay no tax.

This costs poor countries $100bn per year.

And our governments are cuting foreign aid claiming they don't have the money.

This is blatant corruption.

It is evil.

And it is untenable.

God save us from the System.

Weeds.


In The Parable of Weeds among the Wheat  Jesus says not to gather the weeds, "'for in gathering the weeds you would uproot the wheat along with them.'"  Matthew 13:29 (NRSV)

This means that we should not attack and destroy evil because we would not be able to differentiate between those who are evil and those who are good.

And many Fundamentalist Christians do exactly this.
Especially those who practise Spiritual Warfare.

They attack Hippies and Gays because they are left-wing and liberal and they support right-wing racism and prejudice.

They also support the rich.

So Jesus was quite right to tell his disciples not to uproot evil because they would not have seen clearly enough to do so.

"'You hypocrites, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your neighbor's eye.'"  Matthew 7:5 (NRSV)

Yin and Yang.


In the 1980s Generation X suggested that Yin and Yang represented Evil and Good.

This is Satanic nonsense.

Yin and Yang, with their opposing centers, represent something more like Female and Male, or Lunar and Solar.

It was never intended to represent Evil and Good.

This is just one more piece of evidence that Satanism is lies.

Avignon.


In his Avignon Quintet Lawrence Durrell created a quincunx of novels.

That is a central book surrounded by four subsidiary books.

The central book is called "Monsieur or The Prince of Darkness".

And in this book the characters visit a remote Egyptian oasis where they are initiated into some sort of Gnostic cult.

The participants have visions of Satan and afterwards their mentors explain that the devil rules the earth and that he is the snake or Kundalini of Yoga.

These are Satanic lies.

The revelations seem fascinating at first but they do not stand the scrutiny of time.

At the end of this central book there is an Envoi - "D - created Blanford - created....."

D is the devil.

Kundalini.


In Yoga the power of the Kundalini is represented as a snake.

But Western Satanic magicians have appropriated the power of Kundalini for Satan because in Western mythology the snake is the devil.

This is a gross misinterpretation of the symbolism.

The power of the Kundalini comes from God not the devil.

In India the snake represents the primordial creative power of God.

It has been misinterpreted and misapplied as Satanic nonsense.

The Last Piece.


The last piece of the puzzle is the knowledge that rock music is disguised Satanism.

Since the 1960s rock stars have been selling their souls and poisoning and betraying everyone.

This evil is disguised in their music and videos.

Peace and love became sex and drugs and rock and roll.

Idealism is dead.

And everyone is distracted.

"Don't have an agenda, just have a good time."

Party, sin, transgress, fxxk.....

This is modern Satanism.

It is spreading through our entertainments and sports.

And we are all in its spell.

The Puzzle.


The puzzle of our modern world is a mystery to everyone.

The rich get richer and the poor get poorer.

The Church is dying.

And no one cares.

We are all distracted.

We all consume.

Idealism is dead.

And war rages on.

Government replies are straight out of 1984.

We have no power.

And we are all in the dark.

This, of course, is deliberate.

The rich own our media.
And our politicians.

The hierarchies of the Churches are blind.
They teach human precepts as doctrines.

But God is real.

He does not punish us.
He does not judge us.

He loves us like His children.

He is beautiful and transcendent.
Wholly good and wholly benevolent.

The carrot and stick religion of rewards and punishments has more to do with maintaining worldly authority and power than divine authority and sovereignty.

Open your eyes!

Turn off the T.V. and learn about the true religion.

Which is Love.

Death.


The reason that Shakespeare and others referred to sexual orgasm as death was because in sexual orgasm we transcend the self - i.e. we die to self.

Now dying to self was a good thing - it was a Christian virtue that led to serving God.

But Satanic magicians have usurped this term and applied it as death to God as St.Paul described:

"For the wages of sin is death."  Romans 6:23 (NRSV)

Thus associating sexual orgasm with sin.

This is a gross misuse of language.

A deliberate lie.

Which is designed to damn everyone.

So ignore any suggestion that sex is death to God.

Sex is death to self which is a great virtue.

Black World.


For thirty years the political and popular landscape has been dominated by corporate ideology.

Sack staff, cut taxes, bash unions, blame the left, persecute minorities, cut immigration, cut foreign aid and oppose the United Nations, avoid taxation, exploit labor, force wages down, work harder, cut welfare, support war, romanticize the military, push nationalism.....

And all their workers wearing black.

Any questioning is deflected with jargon that would rival 1984's Black/White and New Speak.

We have no power any more.

Our politicians are firmly is the hands of the plutocrats.

We no longer live in a democracy.

We live in a corporate plutocracy.

And we're well and truly sick of it.

Pseudo.


Why is it that in this post-modern age so much of the language in our popular culture is pseudo-religious.

From rock music to headlines, from movies and literature to T.V. - the language is saturated with religious references.

The secret behind this phenomenon is the covert practise of Satanism by rock stars and celebrities including sports men and women.

Our popular media has been secretly infiltrated by those who have sold out to the devil.

And they do the devil's work.
Or so they believe.

Temptation, corruption, violence, evil.....

All these things derive from popular entertainment.

Even children's entertainment is affected.

So don't just swallow this whole.

Learn to discriminate and analyse what you see and hear.

The Answer.


You should not be surprised when I say that violence is caused by fear.

Psychology has long known that fear triggers the fight or flight response.

So fear can make us attack.

The answer then is to allay people's fears.

And how do we allay people's fears?

With Love.

The Problem.


The way of knowledge will say that ignorance is the problem.

The way of altruism will say that ego is the problem.

The way of enlightenment will say that darkness is the problem.

The way of works will say that selfishness is the problem.

But I say that the way is the way of love.

And fear is the problem.

After I am dead no doubt the powers that be will put words into my mouth and claim that I was some sort of Orthodox Conservative who believed in judgement, punishment, the devil, and hell.

Cheap Trick.


The trick of Satanic rock music in our popular culture is to look like what we believe in or aspire to and then to sabotage any good, ideals, or progress we may have made.

They tempt and pervert us.

They corrupt and disturb us.

They lead us astray.

Then they curse us to hell.

This applies to all rock music and popular music in our culture.  But it is cleverly disguised.

We are being deceived.

We are being betrayed.

We are blinded and distracted.

We are ripped-off and blamed.

We would be better off without it.

Books.


In the Koran the Jews are called People of the Book.

But Muslims could just as easily be called People of the Book. 

In fact we are all People of the Book be it scripture or philosophy, sutra or manifesto, ideology or idolatry, even fiction.....

But the problem with books is that although they may contain fragments of truth they also contain errors.

And these errors result in conflict and violence, even war and bloodshed.

Assumptions of infallibility are obsolete.

We must read our books with discrimination.

For example any suggestion of Divine violence, punishment, terror, or torture should be questioned.

Any unlikely claims or statements should be put to the test.

At first we doubt that words have been put into the mouths of prophets, even the mouth of God.

But evidence from modern scholarship would suggest that this is exactly what has happened.

Traditions arise from commentaries on the scriptures and are enforced as if they were words of scripture itself.

So read with discrimination.

Ask yourself, "Why has the author written in this way?"

And you may be closer to the truth.

Me.


The problem with most New Age Gurus is that they concentrate on me.

They tell you how to get what you want out of life.

But this is merely mind games.

And it does not work.

They will tell you that you can control what is in your life by your own thoughts.

But this is not true.

It is an abuse of Eastern meditation techniques.

Replacing negative thoughts with positive thoughts helps us to cope with the stress and suffering of life.

But suggesting that we can control what comes into our life by our thoughts is folly.

It won't happen.

They are just telling you what you want to hear.

And making a lot of money out of it.

So don't listen to New Age Gurus who tell you you can get what you want out of life.

It simply won't happen.

Spiritual development is about what we give.

And not just giving so we can receive.

It has been said that to be loved is good but to love is better.

Give love.

And turn for Home.

God's Favor.


God does not favor one person over another.

God does not favor one nation over another.

God does not favor one race over another.

God is the God of all.

And all peoples have experiences of God.

So all peoples should look to their religions and find the heart of their teachings.

Then we will truly be His sons and daughters.

Curses.


In the temples of the ancient world there were stone tablets called curse tablets.

These were requests addressed to the god to curse a person's enemies for whatever reason.

We also find this in the Bible:

God says to Abraham, "I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you, I will curse."  Genesis 12:3 (NRSV)

This thinking is also evident in the Psalms where David repeatedly calls on God to destroy his enemies.

But this is a serious misunderstanding of the nature of God.

God does not curse anyone.

God is a constant blessing to all people.

The idea that God will bless you and curse your enemies is false thinking.

It comes about through humankind's dualistic thinking.

But God is One.

A blessing to us all.

The Enemy.


Far from our enemy being the Religious Right or the Corporate Plutocrats our enemy is fear.

It is fear that drives these conservative elements to oppose and attack God's messengers.

Fear of God, fear of poverty, fear of failure, fear of justice, fear of the masses.....

These fears underpin their policies and actions.

So to overcome the darkness which has engulfed us we must look to the fears which lie under aggression and violence.

Only then will we have Peace.

David.


In the Psalms David describes his experience of God.

He echoes Moses in Psalm 145:

"The Lord is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love."  Psalm 145:8 (NRSV)

But, like Moses, David believed that God punishes the wicked.

"The Lord watches over all who love him,
but all the wicked he will destroy."  Psalm 145:20 (NRSV)

This is the expectation of Natural Justice which human beings have projected onto God.

But God does not destroy the wicked.

His mercy and forgiveness extend even to those we call evil.

For they also are sons and daughters of God.

Aquarius and Scorpio.


It is important that we separate the influences of Aquarius and Scorpio.

The Aquarius Stellium* of February 1962 was thought by many to be the herald of the Age of Aquarius.

This stellium had Neptune at 13° Scorpio - the accursed degree of the accursed sign.

Neptune governs music and the rock music which was born in the early sixties was infected with covert Satanism.  Scorpio governs hidden things and evil influences.

But because this chart contained a stellium of planets in Aquarius rock music was associated with Aquarius.

Also the Uranus/Pluto conjunction which dominated the 1960s tended to confuse the influences of the two planets.  Uranus governs Aquarius and Pluto governs Scorpio.

Aquarius governs: astrology, homosexuality, freedom, altruism, technology, the future, the new, the original.....

Scorpio governs: secrets, death, violence, hate, evil, chaos, and sex.

Many of the negative manifestations of the Rock Era can be traced to Scorpio.

Rock music contains the influences of both Aquarius and Scorpio.

It is our task to separate these two influences.

And eliminate hate and evil from modern music forever.


*A stellium is a large group of planets in one sign.

Add Up.


In my experience anyone who thinks that because they are doing God's work in the world God will supply money to finance it is in serious trouble.

It has to add up.

God will not produce money out of mid-air to fund what we presume He wants us to do.

Even if we are doing what He wants us to do it still has to add up.

So don't imagine that the Church cannot go bankrupt.

With dwindling numbers and no new members the Church is in serious financial trouble.

It must be downsized.
Expensive properties must be sold.

Real estate must be rationalized.
Churches must be closed.

There will be a remnant.

But it still has to add up.

God's Church.


Only about 5% of God's priests and ministers are involved in child sexual abuse.

A further 20% may be involved in inappropriate relationships with women or men.

But the sexual abuse scandals besmirch the whole of God's Church and even God Himself.

The fact that the hierarchy of the Church tried to protect the name of the Church rather than deal with sexual abuse according to the law is a secondary matter.

But the fact remains that 75% of priests and ministers are good, law abiding citizens.

It is unfair of society to condemn the whole of God's Church for the actions of a minority.

With the cry of Bring down the Patriarchy the Church is dying a slow death.

Churches are empty across the whole of the Western World.

But what will replace it?

If God tries to revive His Church you will say that it is a bankrupt institution.

Young people won't go near it.

So we are at the mercy of evil.

Corporate plutocrats enslave us.

Rock stars betray us.

Politicians ignore us.

The only answer is to make the public aware of the 75% of God's Church that is good.

And ask for the forgiveness of society.

Gay Marriage.


The Uniting Church in Australia Standing Committee on Marriage and Same-Gender Relationships has recommended that the Church allow the celebration of same-sex marriages within the Uniting Church.

This decision was tempered by a recommendation that individual ministers and church councils can refuse on the grounds of personal conscience.

The rationale behind this decision is that although there are passages in the Bible that seem to condemn homosexuality these passages are disputed and alternate interpretations should be respected.

The Uniting Church is not a literalist Church.

We respect the diversity of sources of scripture and of scholarly interpretations.

Homosexuality was seen as a part of the diversity of God's good creation and was therefore not to be demonized.

The Report will be presented to the National Assembly in July.

Lovers' Cottage.


On my daily walk I pass a weatherboard house surrounded by climbing roses, blossom trees, and fragrant jasmine.....

It has a green gable over its garden gate.

The garden is visited by all kinds of birds: turtledoves, pigeons, corellas, rainbow lorikeets.....

I have dubbed the house Lovers' Cottage because of the sheer abundance of God's Love that surrounds it.

It is a visible symbol of our Atonement.

The Way of the Heart.


The way is not the way of fanatical self-denial.

As if we were to place provisos on God's Love.

"'For John the Baptist has come eating no bread and drinking no wine, and you say, "He has a demon"; the Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, "Look, a glutton and a drunkard. a friend of tax-collectors and sinners!"'" Luke 7:33,34 (NRSV)

But John the Baptist was not the Messiah.

The Messiah came eating and drinking.

In the same way the Bhagavad-Gita says:

"Great is the yogi who seeks to be with God,
Greater than those who mortify the body,
Greater than the learned,
Greater than the doers of good works."

"Give me your whole heart,
Love and adore me,
Worship me always,
Bow to me only,
And you shall find me."

Jesus said, "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.'"  Matthew 22:37 (NRSV)

So do not listen to those who tell you that God requires extreme self-denial.

The way is the Way of the Heart.

"The Lord looks on the heart."  1 Samuel 16:7 (NRSV)

And "perfect love casts out fear."  1 John 4:18 (NRSV)
