Who said anything about taking the entirety of the Bible and 'throwing it out the window? Did you say that because Star Wars refrains from
introducing or espousing biblical scripture? I suppose most entertainment, if you follow this strange line of reasoning, would aim to 'throw
scripture out the window,' should it simply not include to proselytize Christian doctrine.
Dude, witches use all sorts of wood to craft their wands, not just Holly. I once had a teacher named, Holly Wood - I doubt she was a witch, but
perhaps I could be enlightened on the fundamentals her character based upon her name alone. To suggest that the name of this neighborhood in L.A. was
given as a component of some hidden and sinister agenda might be true (just as it might be true that there exists a moon made of cheese somewhere out
there in the universe), but just sounds ridiculous, especially when based upon an faulty application of etymology and big dose of sketchy
To suggest that Star Wars, 'instills a desire to practice eastern religions' is incorrect - that does not apply to every person who watches those
films, and I doubt an overwhelming number leave the theatre thinking, 'I should really convert to Zen, (or flipping Jedism)' and who, but you, gives
a care if it did in fact lead to more individuals practicing self-control, mindfulness, compassion and peace - do you really think that such actions
would upset Divinity? Of course you do, because you have been indoctrinated; and indoctrinated as a last-ditch effort out of fear after having let
your guard down and getting bitten after superficial dabbling in whatever watered-down variety of occultism in which you thought you were adept.
Regardless, what you were implying with that comment was to say, 'Jedi's practice meditation and self-control, which is akin to certain eastern
practices, and if a lot of people are inspired by Star Wars, then it must follow that Star Wars thus instills a desire to practice eastern
religions'- but you didn't want to just come right out and say that and examine your argument step-by-step for some reason - probably because, for
one, it is a bad argument because there is a very big difference between adopting certain practices of a religion, versus adopting a religious
identity. You know, it just doesn’t make sense why you would try to hide this deductive jump because you obviously believe that it makes no
difference whether it is a non christian religious practice or a non-christian religion - you believe they are all of Satan's doing.
Listen, I can respect that you believe what you believe, because I believe that we catch our beliefs the same way that we catch a cold, and it is
necessary oftentimes to critically examine our lines of reasoning that we used in coming into specific beliefs in order that these beliefs may become
well-reasoned beliefs, perhaps readjusted, or even discarded - but dude, play by the rules and don't manipulate the reasoning of your audience by
giving arguments that you know are bad and will only apply (even as a very big stretch) to your religious paradigm, because that only makes you appear
fanatical and untrustworthy.
Anyhow, if the practices of meditation and aligning oneself with 'the Force' can be considered 'eastern,' and thus, 'Satanic' (though i still
don’t know how that quite follows), then please ask yourself what Joshua was doing in the desert during those 40 days. Yes, he was 'praying,'
which is most definitely a type of meditation (the same way that Tamari is a type of Soy Sauce), and is a method for seeking to align oneself with the
'Force,' or God, Adonai, the Elohim, etc... As such, the ‘Force’ may indeed be real - but it is not the intellectual or physical property the
'new age' movement (which is what anyway, a bunch of middle-aged women with Eckhart Tolle books, crystal collections and tarot cards?). The talk of
this 'force' is nothing new, and has been discussed throughout human-history - it is perhaps that George Lucas was simply tapping the Platonic realm
of universal ideals, as many artists do when they create inspiring works of good, though I have a hunch that here, you may fall back on your default,
'if it wasn't in the Bible, then it is Satan's doing' in response to this. Anyhow, with the same angle, I must ask, what sort of 'force' did
Yeshua use to heal people? And you will reply that it was the force of God.
When asked why the Bible leaves out a large chunk of the early life of this man, many believers fail to come up with any satisfactory answer. Various
mystery schools (you may probably label them as 'Satanic Luciferian Illuminati Mind Control' cults) claim that Joshua was initiated into the Essene
order/fraternity/whatevs, which taught specific principles of Hebrew Qabalah, mysticism, and importantly, healing; knowledge and rites which were kept
secret in order that they would not be abused or profaned by the dumb and reckless; for this was the knowledge of Divinity and was based upon
principles of Man’s relationship with Divinity. As it is, you may counter here that Jesus was the sole flesh-embodiment of God, and that there will
be no other. You also believe that man is a contingent and dependent being - that man is not God, in any legitimate sense of the definition of God,
and I agree. However, I do believe that through a correct understanding of our relationship with God, we may come to understand that we are all but
vessels by which Divinity manifests, but this may be a sheer difference in spiritual perspectives. Some hold that the God of the old testament was
just an angry alien being - again, just a matter of difference in spiritual perspectives.
All science has at one point been considered to have bordered on the mysterious, the miraculous and even magical. Really, it is only through
introspection into the unknown that we may isolate and identify certain laws or principles of science and use them to our benefit, just as how we came
to define various principles astronomy, chemistry, medicine, and psychology. The study and application of certain and specific (not all) occult laws
of life and consciousness is our God-given birthright - John: 14:12 "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the WORKS that I do he
will do also; and GREATER WORKS than these he will do, because I go to My Father."
Not that you will, but regardless, I ask you to please take a step back, center yourself and just breathe for a moment to ponder the following, if
that practice isn't too blasphemous - granted, you claim that you were relatively recently filled with the Light of the Holy Spirit, but that does
not necessarily include that you are correct in any truth, any given hunch, or any conclusion regarding any thing. It is incorrect to conclude that
any practice not covered in the Bible will, as a rule, eventually open oneself to demon-infestation and blasphemy, or is a manifestation of Satan and
the luciferian-illuminati trying to capture the souls of the less vigilant. You really have little basis for this claim, save for your own
experience, and I assure you that you constitute probably the only person ever having experienced possession from doing yoga, if that was actually the
case and not some re-surfacing neurosis or manifestation of schizophrenia. Although you may believe that you are right, you very well may be wrong,
regardless how you feel about the matter.
