Education.


Since the 1980s education has been considered job training.

But education is so much more than that.

Education is the development of a discriminating intelligence.

It is the awareness of the history of thought.

It is enrichment through culture.

It is enlightenment.

It is empowerment.

The time has come to return education  to its rightful place.

And imbue our young people with its riches.

Let Them Live!


What seems foolishness to the worldly-wise is what seems good to God.

Honesty, truthfulness, non-violence, generosity, virtue, mercy, forgiveness, and unconditional love.

These things seem naive and impractical in the world.

But these are the very things that God requires of us.

To lay down the sword and call on God seems fool-hardy even to the most idealistic among us.

And yet this is Jesus' example.

God has ways of solving problems that we do not understand.

He can resolve conflict without harming either side.
 
But to do this we must let them live.

God punishes no one.

And no one is condemned.

We must live and let live.

God forgives even the most heinous iniquity.

He knows the hidden reasons for their crimes.

And so all are forgiven.

And the lion lies down with the lamb.

A Greater Power.


Most of us think that the greatest power on earth is the rich plutocrats who run the multi-national corporations.

They own everything including the media which they use to control what we think and do.

But there is a greater power than this in the world.

And that is the living God.

God is real.

He is not just a relative perception of the religious and the non-religious alike.

There is an ultimate truth.

And the reality of this truth is greater than any lie they may force on us.

So cry out to God!

He will hear you and deliver you from evil.

In League with the Devil.


The Right-Wing political machine is in league with Satanists in rock music and popular culture.

They call them the Gestapo.

And the backwards, upside-down Satanic magic which they use to hide their true nature and project a positive image of themselves is of great use to the Right-Wing politicians and plutocrats.

And make no mistake it is Right-Wing.

They idolize Adolf Hitler and romanticize Nazism.

And their intentions are evil.

They intend to subjugate the whole of humanity by taking away the safety-net (welfare) so that everyone is so afraid of losing their job that they will think and do whatever the plutocrats demand.

 And then the plutocrats will force wages down and remove workers conditions.

Thus creating a subordinate class of workers with no power and no rights.

This is an evil Machiavellian plot.

And we are its victims.

1984.


I have just realized that 1984 was the year that Pluto entered its own sign of Scorpio.

Pluto and Scorpio represent: power, force, violence, intimidation, bulling, hate, and evil.

All the things represented in George Orwell's classic novel.

And since 1984 all of these things have dominated world culture.

Even NewSpeak, Black/White, and the Ministry of Truth have become political realities.  Along with the ever present CCTV cameras.  And control of the media.

It is not the Left, however, which is using these techniques but the Right-Wing politicians and plutocrats.

Fortunately Pluto only remained in Scorpio for about 10 years.

But we are still dealing with the fallout from 1984.

Basically we are dealing with brainwashing techniques using fear and violence.

Ronald Reagan (who was President of the United States in 1984) said that Christianity contained "unconventional weapons".

By that he meant such things as demonization of your political opponent and damnation of anyone who disagrees with you.

He used all these techniques in his war against the Left.

And it worked.

We love Big Brother.

Presidents.


It should be pointed out to Millennials that several Democrat Presidents have put forward legislation on gun control.

But the Republicans have blocked most of them in the Congress or the Senate.

So the only way forward is to give the Democrats full control of both houses.

Then they must look at the U.S. Constitution.

Gun Control.


Thousands of Millennials across America are protesting against gun violence.

They are clearly in favor of gun control.

And it should be pointed out that the reason that gun control has failed in the past is simply because the Republican Party will not pass any legislation to control guns.

The N.R.A. has them firmly in their grip.

And make no mistake they will appeal to the U.S. Constitution to challenge any legislation that the Democrats may put up.

So the only way to enact gun control is to give full control of the Congress and the Senate to the Democrats.

Otherwise the Republicans will block any legislation.

And then they must alter the Constitution to outlaw guns forever.

The Reins.


Millennials beware!

Don't make the mistake that the Hippies made.

The Hippies allowed rock stars to take the reins of their movement in the 1960s and 1970s.

But rock stars are fakers.

And they have a dark secret:

From the beginning they sold their souls to the devil and poisoned us with covert Satanic propaganda.

They told us to take drugs, turn on, and drop out.

But the violence and evil hidden in the music did even more damage.

They told us to sin and transgress in the hope that we would be damned to hell.

But God does not judge us.

He forgives and saves us.

So there is only one answer:

No rock music!

Tears.


"Then the Lord God will wipe away the tears from all faces."  Isaiah 25:8 (NRSV)

Theses words, echoed in Revelation, are the promise of God.

And this is the attitude we should take to human sexuality.

God will wipe away our tears.

For human sexuality, including homosexuality, is a matter of the heart.

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

So we should not be concerned about sexual indiscretions which compensate for our heart's desire.

These will be taken away.

For God is near to the broken-hearted.

And His mercy will restore us.

1+1 = 2.


It has been said that wherever there is Aquarius you will find Taurus also.

Whether it be a mother or a brother or a close relative there is always Taurus.

Perhaps the reason for this lies in the house numbers of Aquarius and Taurus.

Aquarius corresponds to the 11th House.

Taurus corresponds to the 2nd House.

1+1 = 2.

So there is a numerical relationship between the 11th Sign (Aquarius) and the 2nd Sign (Taurus).

This may be the hidden reason for their relationship.

Fears and Tears.


When AIDS hit the gay community the violent reaction was triggered by fear.

Fear of disease and death.
Moral panic caused isolation, persecution, and ostracism.

Gay men became pariahs.

But at the same time this stimulated many people's tears.

Sympathy and compassion for gay men suffering from AIDS inspired discussion about homosexuality in our Churches.

The Progressive Christian movement, which supports acceptance of gays and lesbians, began as a study of sexuality in the Churches following the AIDS crisis.

So we have fears and tears.

But it is when our tears are stronger than our fears that we experience spirituality.

And the Love of God.

God's Blessing.


We seek God's blessing on our homosexual sex.

Whether this be in marriage or outside of marriage we seek God's blessing.

Heterosexual people are able to engage in sex with impunity.

But homosexual people are subjected to contempt.

We are called immoral and disgraced.

Women indulge in all manner of sexual excess and no one says a word.

But homosexuals are called sinful and an abomination to God.

So we seek God's blessing on our homosexual sex.

Whether in marriage or outside of marriage we seek His blessing.

Slaves.


Generation X were anti-unions, anti-ideals. and anti-religion.

Without unions we are corporate slaves.

Without ideals we are corrupt and unjust.

Without religion we are merciless and unforgiving.

But worst of all Generation X were anti-love.

And without love we are dead.

The corporations force an all-black dress code on their employees.

And this is the uniform of slaves.

Business.


The right-wing political philosophy involves stimulating business activity by deregulation, financial incentives, tax cuts, and union bashing.

This, they say, will create jobs and lead to prosperity.

And this does work to some extent.
It creates jobs but the prosperity generated is for the few.

The problem is that it creates huge disparity between rich and poor as businesses pursue greater profits and force wages down.

It also lowers the quality of life for the majority as corporations pressure governments to cut welfare and social programs.

And now we are seeing corporations pushing to sue governments which pass laws causing them to lose profits.

So now we are powerless.

The Road Less Travelled.


Most of us travel the road of pleasure and pain.

We seek pleasure and avoid pain.

Or we aspire to mental principles which we believe to be good.

Unfortunately this is usually accompanied by a fear of punishment and hell for failing to adhere to these principles.

But there is another way.

The road less travelled.

And this is the Way of Love.

To draw close to God through love is to see God's beauty, God's goodness, and God's harmlessness.

We discover that there is nothing to fear.

God requites our love.

And He forgives our mistakes.

He does not punish us.

And He does not judge us.

He opens the Scriptures to us.

And He leads us Home.

Island.


"No man is an island
Entire of itself;
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main."
              - John Donne (1572-1631)

And so we are all responsible for what we do as a whole.

Our governments are not merely to blame for everything.

We have elected them.

We can replace them.

The cruel and selfish policies of our governments are our responsibility.

Speak out!

Demonstrate!

Let them know we are angry!

Let them know we've had enough!

Enough is enough!

We demand change!

Twisted.


What in the ancient world was thought to be demonic possession is in fact a twisted sexual impulse.

The urgent desire associated with sex becomes somehow twisted through fear and repression into a desire to do harm.

But God restores us to health.

He makes us whole.

And these perversions miraculously disappear.

It is as if our demons are exorcised.

So pray to God with a sincere heart.

And you will be restored.

Terrible.


Why do Satanists do terrible things?

I believe that the reason is sex.

And the reason that some people enjoy doing terrible things is a twisted sexual pleasure.

But sex is love.

And in the end all will be redeemed through Love.

Bad.


Bad boys.  Bad girls.

Why do they choose bad?

In reality this is a sacrifice for sex.

Because sex is bad you have to be bad to get it.

This is why bad is good.

And this is why they support the devil.
Because the devil promises sexual gratification.

They go to sex clubs and wear horns.

But sex is love.

And if they realize that the Churches have been wrong about sex - that God is not anti-sex - then they can be good.

This is why they are anti-religious.

Because religion bans sex.

So they want to get rid of religion.

So they can have sex without guilt.

But sex is love.

Sex is the desire for union with another.

And the desire for union with another is love.

And love comes from God.

And God is good.

So sex is good.

Sheep Dog.


Once we realize that we have a place at God's Celestial Banquet table it no longer matters whether we have a place of honor or otherwise.

In fact I would be happy with last place.

I could be the one who ensures that everyone is safely Home.

Like a sheep dog.

So be thorough in your devotions and your practices.

And pray everyone Home.

Redeeming the Beast.


Contrary to popular opinion God does not destroy evil people but seeks to redeem them.

This is why evil still exists in our world.

Jesus told us of God writing off debts.

He said; "The Father judges no one."  John 5:22 (NRSV)
And, "You judge by human standards; I judge no one."  John 8:15 (NRSV)

So those who wage war against the Beast are misguided.

The Beast is not a supernatural being but a network of Satanists spread throughout our world.

And the reason that God does not destroy them is because the God they rejected was the false God of judgement and punishment invented by the Church to keep the masses in their place.

And the reason that He does not destroy those who created this false God  is because it is a product of human fear which has been passed down from generation to generation.

Primitive humans could not conceive of a God who was unlike earthly authority figures - fathers and kings - who rewarded good and punished evil.

So they projected their expectation of Natural Justice onto God.

But God is the Father even of the wicked.

And He will not destroy them.

He will write off their debts.

And redeem their souls through Love.

More Than You Think.


When I was young there would occasionally appear in the Sunday Press an article about Satanism.

This appeared to be a small fringe phenomenon which practised bloody and salacious rituals.

It was the stuff of sensational journalism.

But later in life I began to realize that Satanism was more wide-spread than I had thought.

Many rock bands and sports stars, movie stars and directors, even authors have sold their souls for fame and fortune and the perfection of their art.

This goes back a long way in history but it is since the 1960s that the mass media has enabled these celebrities to spread their evil to all humanity.

But they are cleverly disguised as the heroes and saviors and icons of our popular culture.

They are Divas and Dogs (Gods backwards).

So don't just take everything at face value.

There is more Satanism in our world than you think.

God's Name.


In the ancient world to know the name of a god or spirit of the underworld was very important.

If you knew their name they could not harm you.

In the Bible God's name is an enigma.

"I will protect those who know my name."  Psalm 91:14 (NRSV)

And what is God's name?

Love.

All About Love.


When I say that the jar of Aquarius is your heart and the water is love some people say: "But Aquarius is an air sign."

Most seem to think that the enigmatic water of Aquarius represents special spiritual knowledge of some sort.

Although no one seems to know what it is.

But my experience is that the special spiritual knowledge they refer to is all about love.

And this leads us to the heart.

So, yes, Aquarius is an air sign, it leads us through the concept of unconditional love to our heart.

And there we find Love.

Instant Gratification.


When you are young sex is an urgent need.

Some can't wait for religion.

So they go to the devil because he promises instant gratification.

But sex is love.

And love comes from God.

So in the end sex is good.

And all will be forgiven.

Gay is Good.


Homosexuality is love.

And as such it is in harmony with God.

God does not discriminate.

He does not have one set of rules for heterosexuals and another set of rules for homosexuals.

He loves everyone equally.

And so gay people will go to Heaven as others do.

There is no rule excluding homosexuals.

And those who quote archaic texts that stigmatize homosexuality are wrong.

They are merely looking to justify their own prejudice and fear.

Homosexuality is good.

And homosexual men and women are good as well.

Don't Need It.


Most young people will say that they don't need the Church.

And it may seem that way.

But the normal popular culture is saturated with hidden evil.

Rock music, T.V., movies, sports, literature.....

All these things are infected with Satanic propaganda.

And make no mistake this influence is harmful.

Addiction, excess, depression, suicide, death.....

They deal in negations and all their effects are negative.

So some sort of positive spiritual influence is needed to counter this flood of evil.

Not all Churches are perfect of course.

But if you can find a Church which is reasonably compatible with your hopes and ideals then the positive influence which comes from God will protect you.

You will find that your state of mind and your mood improve dramatically.

But it is when you realize that God is love that you really benefit.

Open your heart.

Love God and love your neighbor.

Then you will be Home!

Adolescent.


Most people who reject God and sell their souls are adolescent.

And this is no coincidence.

Because the reasons for turning away from a God who bans sex and opposes success are obvious.

And a contract with the devil which guarantees worldly success and sexual gratification can appeal to an adolescent mentality.

And this is what has happened.

People have turned away from the Church in droves.

But it is the practices of those who have turned to Satan which are destroying our world.

Negative suggestion, dark obsessions, and corruption are hidden in music, videos, movies, literature, even sports.

Unconscious control and subliminal suggestion poison us daily.

This works through the unconscious so we are unaware of its effects.

But emptiness, cynicism, burn-out, despair, and depression are the effects.

It can even cause mental illness, addictions, alienation, and suicide.

So be more discerning about your listening and watching.

If you want to maintain your peace of mind.

Less is More.


We are accustomed to thinking that more money, more possessions, more privileges is better.

But I say less is more.

Less money is more freedom.

Less possessions is more time for ourselves and others.

Less privileges is more self-esteem.

We feel weighed down by responsibility, work, and guilt.

Less lifts us up and frees us.

So don't believe the advertising which tells you that more is better.

More is a burden.

Less is better.

Treasure.


When we were asked in church what was the most treasured thing in our lives.

I said the Love of God.

Because without the Love of God I would be lost.

No thing is more important than the Love of God.

And because we meet God in other people those who are important to us are manifestations of God.

Jesus said to love God and love your neighbor.

He also said, "'Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.'"  Matthew 25:40 (NRSV)

And God's family includes everyone.
