Life.


It has been said that God is Life.

But what is Life?

Life is the growth that plants and animals experience.
Life is the healing which restores us to health.

But what of death?

Death is no thing.
Death is no place.
Nor is it a state.
Nor is it a kingdom.

At worst death is a moment.
A door into another life.

The heart is the life of the body.
The body is alive.

Life is breath.
Life is health.
Life is faith.
Life is love (the water of life).

Turn to God - the source of life - and be healed and restored to health.

Sex in Heaven?


I prayed long and hard about gay sex on earth.

And I was rewarded with the answer that it is O.K. with God.

But "'whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.'"  Matthew 16:19b (NRSV)

Could there be gay sex in heaven?

To my surprise God suggested to me that there is.

So to those who worship Satan and want to go to hell because that's where all the sex is, you don't need to, you can have sex and still go to heaven.
You can even have sex when you get there.

So the whole raison d'etre of Satanism is subverted.

There is no devil in reality.

God's reconciling Love is extended even to His enemies.

And He who is forgiven much will love much.

A Shot Across the Bows.


There was a Syrian freedom fighter whose brother was tortured and killed by the secret police.

Fearing for his life he fled the country and boarded a boat bound for Australia.
His companions were other young men, single women, and children.

As the leaking vessel approached Australian waters it was met by an Australian Navy vessel which fired a shot across its bows.

The shot pierced the vessel's hull and the boat began to sink.

The young men, women, and children were thrown into the sea.

As the Australian Navy vessel sailed slowly away he could hear cries and screams as the cruel waters closed over his head.

Beauty.


If you see beauty in the things that I write,

know that the beauty of these ideas and concepts comes from God.

It is God that is beautiful.

Make a Mistake.


Sometimes we are so afraid of making a mistake that we become stuck in a phase of our development.

But fear is never the answer.

It is better to make a mistake than to do nothing.

Sometimes when we make a mistake it can be a breakthrough in our development.  At the very least we will know more than we did before.

If we are sincere we will always be forgiven.

So make a mistake and learn something.

It is better than being stuck.

Spiritual Development.


When we begin to explore ideas of spiritual development the evil influences which work through the collective unconscious can attack us.

This can cause spiritual accidents or it can corrupt us.

This is where we need the help of a spiritual community around us to help counteract evil influences.

We also need help from the Divine which can be sought through prayer and supplication.

If these two elements are missing - i.e. we try to do it on our own - the chances are that the evil influences will overcome us.

But if we seek the help of like-minded people in a spiritual community and humble ourselves before God the chances that we will succeed are greatly improved.

Everyone.


Rather than battling against those we call evil.
Rather than trying to win out against our enemies.
Rather than judging and punishing.

We should seek to have a benevolent attitude towards everyone.
Even those who harm us.

God does not punish us.
God waits for everyone to come to Him.
God returns good for evil.

Jesus said to love our enemies and bless those who curse us.

And so it is with Aquarius.
The Water Carrier governs universal brotherhood.

The water of Aquarius is for each one of us.

And so we love everyone equally.

Normal.


Under normal circumstances we are governed by worldly values - i.e. we seek after money, possessions, fame, status, power.....all the things which the world offers.

Evil influences send us messages which reinforce these values and even try to turn us to the dark side.

Any suggestion of spiritual values is absent from our daily menu.

And if we do manage to address the spiritual side of life the search is swiftly sabotaged.

We wonder why there is no hope in the world and we are dominated by materialism and violence.

But we never question the influences which we are consuming daily from the television and music.

Look at the messages which these things are sending.

What are they telling you to do?

You may be surprised.

What is Fear?


Fear is what stops us expressing our love.

There is fear in the darkness.

Fear of the unknown.

All violence is caused by fear.

Hate is fear.

Coldness is fear.

When we overcome our fear we find love.

Don't be afraid.

Show your love.

And enter into bliss.

Separating the Sheep From the Goats.


When the Hippies and Baby-Boomers were revived by Generation Y they raised their rock legends with them.

It seems that they were unable to discriminate between that generation's sheep and their goats.

By this I mean that they were unable to discriminate between the victims of Satanism and its perpetrators.

The Hippies and Baby-Boomers were not evil in themselves.
In fact they were beautiful souls dedicated to peace and love.

But their rock stars led them astray into lives of drugs and degradation.

That is why it is important to discriminate between the positive cultural influences of the Hippies and Baby-Boomers and the negative influences which can be traced to their rock legends.

We must separate the sheep from the goats.

The Prodigal Son.


Contrary to popular belief I do not think that the parable of The Prodigal Son refers to a person who spends their money on prostitutes and profligate living.

I believe that this story represents those who have turned away from God in apostasy.

This rebellion against God leads to excess and evil.

It is the only real evil that exists on earth.

But I do not believe that God destroys evil.

I believe that God seeks them out like the lost sheep.
And He comes running to meet them when they come to their senses.

So do not battle against evil in an attempt to destroy it.

Instead pray for them to come to themselves and be reconciled to God through Love - the unseen hook.

Cosmetic.


Something that characterizes Satanists in our popular culture is an obsession with personal image.

An image which is purely cosmetic.

They pose as messiahs, prophets, and saviors.
They pretend to be good, idealistic, and humanitarian.
They impersonate saints.

This hides their true character which is evil.

Their actions are deceptive and destructive.

Their art is subtle sabotage.

But people cannot see them.
Their disguise is too good.

We think they are good like us.
Because we are mostly good we cannot see the evil in them.
And because they are mostly evil they cannot see the good in us and assume we are all corrupt like they are.

But their magic lies are backwards:
They are good and good is evil.

They hate Jesus and they hate the Church.

But the time has come to unmask these impostors.
To wipe away the make up and strip away the costumes.

To recognize that their image is merely cosmetic.

Following.


Whom do you follow?

It seems to me that most people, especially the young, follow stars and celebrities.

They are unable to discriminate between the false prophets and the true.

Rock stars set themselves up as messiahs and prophets in the way that Simon Magus did in the time of Jesus.

But Simon Magus was not the Messiah.
The Messiah is Jesus Christ.

We are diverted by illusions and flashing lights.

But the truth is that most of these stars are Dogs (Gods backwards) and devotees of evil and darkness.

So ask yourself the question:
Whom am I following?

And where will they lead me?

Benevolent.


It is commonplace to see young people with earphones in each ear and a mobile phone tuned to the internet.

They are constantly absorbing the negative messages which emanate from the popular culture.

In fact it is almost impossible to escape them.

They permeate music, movies, literature, T.V., advertising, sports, and children's games.....

So, as agents of Love, it is our job to counter this with a purely benevolent influence.

It is up to us to eliminate all hatred, judgment, condemnation, prejudice, and anger from our hearts and minds.

And become a wholly benevolent influence.

An influence of unconditional Love.

Taking It Back.


One of the dangers of this new revelation is that after a period of time the powers of the world will conspire to take it back.

This is what happened to the Church of Jesus Christ.

When Christianity became the state religion of Rome it was modified to suit the purposes of the state - i.e. to keep everyone under control.

Thus it was that the unconditional love and forgiveness which Jesus taught was replaced by a system of rewards and punishments in the life to come - about which no one could know anything for certain.

And so heaven and hell were born.

Hell has always been out of character for a loving God.

But there just might be a heaven.

Devolution.


When we talk about a religious revival in the 21st century we are not just talking about winding the clock back to the 1950s and recreating Christendom.

We cannot go back to the faith of the past.

The world only spins forward.

What Progressive Christianity does is not merely dressing up the old theology in new clothes it is devolving our faith to its source - the beliefs and teachings of the historical Jesus.

No longer will the Church be the religious arm of the conservative establishment (as it has been since Christianity became the state religion of Rome.)

No longer will Christ be a human blood sacrifice for our sins.

No longer will Christ be the remedy for the Original Sin of a mythological Adam and Eve.

No longer will we be threatened with hell.

But we will be saved and sustained by the unconditional Love of God.

Saved.


I can say that I am saved.

Saved by God.

"Saved from what?"  you ask.

Saved from the web of evil that permeates our popular culture.

Saved from the hands of those who would see us in hell.

Saved from Satanists.

Satanism permeates our popular culture - from rock music/videos to professional sports, from T.V. to literature, from movies to advertising.....

Everyone is affected.

Some suffer attacks.

Others succumb to temptation.

Still others follow celebrities.

All are affected.

Only God can save us.

Save us from this web of evil.

See.

Pray to God.

And He will deliver you.

Redemption.


No matter where you have been or what you have done God offers forgiveness for your soul.

Even those who have rejected good and sold their souls to the devil can experience redemption.

There is no devil in reality.
Only God's Love.

They have rejected a false image of God - the violent, angry God of the Old Testament.  But because this was the image of God given to them by their Churches their decision is ultimately forgivable.

God punishes no one.

Pray to the loving God of Jesus and you will experience redemption.

Spider Web.


After the failure of his world tour a certain rock superstar confessed to practicing dark magic and abusing white powders.

He admitted to a fascination with the Nazis but stopped short of professing Satanism.

Although this was most likely a false confession designed to clear him of the stigma associated with his sexuality after the AIDS crisis the fact remains that he has confessed to practicing the dark arts.

Subsequent albums would suggest that he is far from reformed.

Many rock stars have faked conversions in order to clear their names then continued to practice black magic and covert Satanism in later years.

So do not follow rock superstars who present themselves as messiahs.
They are false prophets and black magicians who will lead you into captivity and damn you to hell.

The star concerned has since died.

Right Side Up.


The 1980s saw a generation wearing black, moonwalking with their caps on backwards, living upside-down.

But God's Kingdom is right side up:

Show mercy.
Forgive people.
Give them a second chance.
Act kindly.
Be just.
Be honest.
Be truthful.
Have consideration for others.

But most of all:

Give Love.

1988.


Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac.
It represents sex, death, and evil.
And as such it is the favorite sign of Satanic rock bands.

During 1988 Pluto (the ruler of Scorpio) transited 13 degrees Scorpio - the accursed degree of the accursed sign.

Thus Pluto was aspecting Neptune in the chart for the Aquarius stellium of February 1962.

1962 saw the beginning of Satanic rock music in the West.

And 1988 was the culmination of their evil.

We saw devils, hate, death, violence, and horror everywhere.

We saw death sqads, political demonization, gangs, and hell-fire.

True to form this was linked to sex and death.

So don't romanticize the 1980s.

Their legacy is pure evil.

Way Out.


In the 1960s everything was Way Out.

Way out music, way out drugs, way out clothes, way out ideas, way out hair.....

This resulted in addictions, escapism, dropout mentality, depression, hedonism, decadence, cynicism, and suicide.....

A pall of death hangs over everything.

But there is a way out.

First we must see what has been done to us by our rock stars and celebrities.

A conspiracy of Satanists has deceived us and betrayed us.

We follow false prophets and messiahs.

But if we turn to God He will deliver us from this web of evil.

Go into your room, close the door, and pray to God.

He will hear you.

Turn to God and be healed.

This is the way out.

1966.

 lennon_satan.jpg (288×223)            

There exists a photograph of the worlds most famous rock band which dates from June 1966.

It depicts the four members together with the two leaders in front - one making the sign of the devil and the other the sign 666.

This confirms the little known Satanic practices of 1960s rock legends.

This band later released an album full of dark songs which had a plain white cover.  This was a whited sepulcher - a pure white exterior but inside full of darkness and death.

This is one of the ways that rock bands disguise their true nature.
They are evil because they have chosen evil over good.

So don't take rock bands at face value.
Their dark practices are cleverly disguised.

And their music is full of death.

What is Progressive Christianity?


1.  A new way of interpreting the Bible.
- as a human construct.
- as poetry and metaphor.

2.  The historical Jesus.
- a man.
- a Jew.
- a prophet.

3.  A new image of God.
- as totally benevolent.
- as everyone and everything.
- as Love.

4.  Unconditional Love.
- for everyone.
- for everything.

Deliverance.


When we are young we think that life is about getting a partner, finding work, buying a car and a house, and having children.

We are indoctrinated with the philosophy of worldly success.

We think that being accepted by the dominant culture - being one of the boys - is the sanctioned goal in life.

Drunkenness and materialism are the results.

We are encouraged to think of God in terms of worldly authorities.

We do not know that God's ways are not the ways of the world.

But God is on the side of the weak, the poor, the powerless.

He will deliver you from the hands of the wicked.

And mend your broken heart.

Give.


It seems to me that too much of our worship is about receiving.

We ask for peace, we ask for love, we ask for protection, we ask for healing, we ask for a blessing, we ask for guidance, we ask for safety.....

But true religion is about giving.

Jesus' commandment was to love.

Not to ask for a blessing.

But to give love.

Not even to do good works.

But to give love.

And good works will follow.

Then we may receive a blessing.

Selling Your Soul.


When I was young we would occasionally hear about people who had sold their souls to the devil and practiced some sort of Satanism.

This would periodically appear in the Sunday press.
It was a kind of sensationalism.

But it did not appear to be widespread or common.
It was a fringe phenomenon.

We did not take it seriously.

There was no devil in any case so how could there be any great number of devil worshipers?

Later in life I came to realize that this was not the true picture.

There were many people who sold their souls to the devil and practiced covert Satanism.  Many of them were famous people - mostly rock stars and celebrities.

And after many long prayers I found that these people were deluded.
They believed that the devil had granted them fame and fortune in return for their souls and spiritual atrocities perpetrated against us.

But there is no devil in reality.

Theses people practice the dark arts but there is no supernatural element to what they do.

Instead it works on the unconscious level like subliminal suggestion or propaganda.

This is not to say that it is not effective.
It still does untold damage by sabotage and suggestion.
As many a Hippy had discovered.

But this is by no means our fault.

We are the victims, not the perpetrators.
And the vicarious negativity done should not be blamed on the victims.

Instead we should pray for the victims of these spiritual atrocities to be delivered from their hands and healed.

And for the Satanists themselves to be redeemed and reconciled with God.

The Age of Aquarius.


Many people believe we are now entering the Age of Aquarius.

The theory of the Ages derives from astrology.
The precession of the vernal equinox moves backwards through the zodiac at the rate of 1 degree every 71 years.
So every 2130 years it moves into a new sign.

At the moment the vernal equinox is still in the sign of Pisces.
But the flurry of activity around Uranus (the ruler of Aquarius) and the sign of Aquarius itself since 1993 has convinced many that the Age of Aquarius has begun.

At the very least we are in transition.

Most people have heard of the Age of Aquarius because a song about it was included in a certain 1960s musical.  But the song was quite a late entry in the mythology.

Astrology has been used by holy men in the East for thousands of years and many believe that the three wise men in the Bible were astrologers following the star of Bethlehem - the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Pisces in 7 BCE.

So the Age of Aquarius is not just a populist fad.
It has its roots in legitimate religious traditions.

Aquarius governs equality, homosexuality, universal brother-and-sisterhood, socialism, liberty, liberalism, the future, revolution, conceptual thinking, humanitarianism, technology, and enlightenment.

It represents a great leap in the consciousness of humankind.

But this phenomenon will only take place if we can liberate the Age of Aquarius from rock music and popular culture.

Rock musicians and celebrities will wreck the Age of Aquarius in the same way as they wrecked the Hippies in the last century.

So don't be seduced by stars who put themselves forward as leaders of the Age of Aquarius.
They are not.
They are only doing it for their own selfish purposes.

Look to leaders who do not benefit from CD or book sales.

Look to legitimate religious leaders and thinkers.

The stars can take care of themselves.

By the Book.


When many people experience something of the divine - an answered prayer, a sudden solution, a healing - they assume that the orthodox perspective is correct.

This is doing it by the book.

Taking literally the words of the Bible as the Word of God.

But falling back into orthodox theological positions is not the answer.

This is the safe, the unimaginative approach.

But it does not lead to spiritual development.

Instead it stunts the person's faith in a childish fixity.
It inhibits growth and stifles the intellect.

Better to ask questions and search.

You may just find the Reality.

God is Coming.


The Africans have a saying when a catastrophe happens - God is coming.

The catastrophe that hit the world's gay community was AIDS.

So in what way could we say that God is coming to the gay community?

After Stonewall in 1969 the gay community enjoyed a decade of activism which saw homosexuality become almost glamorous.

At the height of this surge AIDS hit.

Not only did this stretch the spiritual resources of all gay people but it threw up all kinds of prejudices - especially religious prejudices.

The current Progressive Christian movement developed from a reaction to the AIDS crisis.  Jack Spong said that sex sent him back to the Bible - to reinterpret it and set Progressive Christianity in motion.

So it is true - God is coming to the gay community.

The Eucharist.


Many have pondered the meaning of the Eucharist.

What could it mean?

This is my body (the bread).
This is my blood (the wine).

I believe that the key to this is the New Covenant.

Jesus was saying that he was giving his life as ransom for many.
Not because God required it.
But because he was innocent.

"'This is my body, which is given for you.  Do this in remembrance of me.'"  Luke 22:19b (NRSV)

"'This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.'"  Luke 22:20b (NRSV)

Jesus' sacrifice of his life is the symbol of the New Covenant between God and humankind.

It is not some supernatural event, however, but a tragedy of massive proportions.

For God sent us a messenger with good news and we crucified him.
