power of heaven and hell is among the things you probably hold most dear.
The magic word is 'FAITH'
Myths, magic, mystery and make-believe
do the impossible, or at least seem to. Illusion and disillusion project
into every day life and many will not do without it.
Myth and magic comes through
the costumes, colours, rites and practices that surround it. It is in the
slight of hand that priests engage in and in the words they use to change the
state of things, or at least the perception people have that they do.
Why Do People Believe Lies
The illusion takes place in the mind where the tricks confuse it and
it accepts what its told as real, after all that's how we train it. The written word,
the thing seen, the story told, all work on the brain as though this is reality.
That is why what it sees, hears, and dreams becomes reality and may come about,
and what is believed stands. That is why religious orders brainwash children
from a young age into accepting the beliefs they promote. Its why they build
schools and isolate kids from outside influences that might change their attitudes
to what they are being taught. It's the power behind suicide bombers and
When the mind is untrained the unreal becomes the real. The myth becomes truth,
and the gullible are preyed upon. What is told to children when their minds are
vulnerable and too immature to figure out the lies is evil, wrong, and stupid. It's why religous leaders keep their
people ignorant and untrained into the things that will give them strength to know the lies.
The Disasters That Happen at Christmas
Look at Christmas! What is it?
How does it perpetuate? Where does it comes from? Two hundred years ago it was hardly ever heard of
until an author named Grimm invented a character called Scrooge.
My first experience of this lie was disastrous. I could not comprehend how
a man in a red suit, of whom I was petrified, would find his way into my bedroom.
In case you are wondering the bedroom is a child's sanctuary and the thought that
someone can just enter therein is frightening. So is the man in the red suit.
Young children are dragged up to these men, who are
complete strangers, but
dressed as Santa Clauses. They are often observed
screaming in fright. Yet they are encouraged to sit on their knees and
tell them their most wanted toys, or whatever. Who benefits from the charade.
profit handsomely from the gullibility of its customers while such scenes demonstrates
the readiness of parents to deceive their children. Would it not be nicer to give a gift to a child
as a present from mum and dad, whom the child respects and feels secure about.
Isn't the fact that we expect children to go along with the lies more dangerous to them
than helpful. What if the man is a pedophile? Can the child tell the difference between a strange
man who will hurt them and one who gives them gifts. Parents WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?
And so it is with religion!
What goes in before 7 years of age stays for life, a proven scientific fact.
What you are told as a child
you never get over unless you are very strong willed and independent -
or something else prompts you. That's why religion wants you to bear as
many children as possible in order to outnumber their opposition. Its why religious schools exist,
and why children are taught ritual before they can even walk.
So parents go on fooling their
children about Christmas, religion, and everything else
I have heard many say that they cannot do away with Christmas. Why?
Can you do away with the alcohol that makes your dreams more exciting? With the
unhealthy bodies that come from too much of a good thing?
Christmas is just another evil
that destroys and if you don't believe that statement then
look at the number of deaths by accident, suicide or other things
that occurs at this time. Look at the disasters that happen, especially in the most
religious countries. Look at the violence, disease, poverty and hunger that an unbalanced world
is going through. Then look at the religious might of those countries.
Religion is not peace but war with God. Make-believe in any form is war with one's
inner self. It is destructive, hurtful, and costly.
To many make-believe is their peace, their
truth, their existence and their reason for being. Take heaven and hell as examples.
How many parents, governments, and nations follow religious principles based on heaven and hell
to rear their children, discipline their people, and punish the sinners according to some outrageous dogma
that has no foundation
When logical explanations for
nature and after-life expectations fail most will turn to superstitition,
magic and myth for answers. That's been the way for thousands of years.
The Catholic Church Conspiracy
Take this case in point.
Some young men knocked on my
door recently and announced they represented the Church of Jesus Christ
of the Latter Day Saints and proceeded to engage me to listen to
their ramblings and to believe in their myth
Before they got more than a few
words out I retaliated
"Just a minute," I
said. "What do you know about evolution? I asked their stunned faces.
"Oh, we don't believe in
that," one of them boldly replied.
"Why not? " I asked
"Well it never happened
because the bible says God created everything in seven days and everything
in the bible is right," the same young man replied.
'How old are you?" I asked.
"Have you been to university,
have you studied genetics, do you know how big the universe is? I rattled
off a heap of questions and they responded that they had not. They then
retorted with answers that claimed scientists are confused, they don't
know the bible and they serve Satan, all of which I hear from fundamentalists
"Oh," I said, "and
the Catholic Church burned their books, killed many of them off, or exiled
them and wrote the New Testament that you are here today to represent.
Do you know that that is a Catholic book that you have under your arm
and that some of the contents are false
The look on their faces showed
me they were out of their depths. They did not expect to come up against
someone like me but the ignorant neighbour up the road would not know
to question their backgrounds or knowledge.
"Let me tell you that the
God I know is Spirit, was never on a cross and never died for any man.
The Spirit fills the universe and speaks to us, who are of IT, directly
so It has no need to send some prophet or other to serve man's lust for
blood. Do you honestly believe that man is so powerful that he can kill
I was fired up
and went on with a lot more until they shrunk away and decided to vacate
my front step. My parting words were ringing in their ears as they left
"Get an education, read about evolution and the universe, open your
eyes and ears to the facts and then come back and tell me your message."
These men and their ignorance
represent the hooks that catch and the chains that bind the unsuspecting
to their ways. Their Church sends them out to rope in 'converts' so it
prospers and gains strength and an aire of righteousness when it is nothing
more than a fraud, a myth, a house of robbers.
The result of their work is terror,
violence and darkness, through which light is obscured, spreading in their
wake. Spiritual light and power is dimmed by myths.
And they bend their tongues like
their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth;
for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, said God. Jeremiah
