there is a lot of talk these days about the identity of the anti-christ. well, we are human after all and so we think in terms of the anti-christ or lucifer as a person. we think of christ this way too and historically the man probably existed as a rabbi 2000 years ago in jeruselem and caused enough problems for the romans that they tacked him to a cross like a common criminal. he was just a man though.
the concept of lucifer , the angel of light, comes from the underpinnings of what went before christianity. before christianity men worshipped many gods and spirits, meeting the needs of his daily life. there were gods for crops, for his family and for his future and he needed to pray to these gods to ensure his prosperity.
the element with the most effect on the lives of men in those times, as now is the sun. men worshipped the sun as a matter of simple efficiency. the sun gives and the sun taketh away. so make your relationship with the sun first and everything else falls in line.
it just makes sense.
jesus, the ressurected, died and was born again. he rose again. the sun comes up in the morning to warm the soil and nurture the crops. it`s that simple.
jesus and lucifer are the same thing in this sense. two sides of the same coin. religion has become industrialised as we have come in from the fields and we have forgotten that we need the sun still, just like those who prayed that the sun would rise in the morning.
to call this new age is patronising and protects a bureaucracy of bishops and cardinals who themselves worship the sun purely and efficiently to ensure the radiant beauty of his contenance.
there is no need for a building to sit in and pray when the sun is in the sky. it is above your head. no need to crowd thousands deep into the piazza to see the holy man in the window. the real god is in the sky. it always has been.
blaspemy? sure. from a bureacratic standpoint. will we burn in hell because of it? no idea.
do we want to grow tall and live our lives? be strong and heathy and be certain in our decisions? o.k., go ahead. the sun will come up in the morning until, for some reason it doesn`t and there`s not a thing we can do about it.
jesus didn`t die for your sins. he pissed the bureaucracy off by teaching hope and love in a time of an invading army of romans in judea 2000 years ago. the only sins we commit are personal and known. don`t do it again, and realise that we may just be alone but for the decisions we make with certainty in our lives.
and the knowledge that the sun will come up in the east in the morning, full of glory.
and don`t look into his eyes..................
