Stop talking absolute rubbish. Sheesh, I wish there wasn't a ban on using all caps, because I feel like shouting at the BS being spouted in the
Did you know that CS Lewis was commissioned by royal charter in World War 2 to broadcast radio shows to the nation, comforting them with easy-going
theological discussions and reassurances of the nearness and love of God?
He once said: "God is... certainly outside of time...He has infinity to listen to the split-second prayer of a pilot as his plane crashes in
Can you imagine living through such awful times, and having the comfort of a kindly old grandfather, wise and discerning, dispensing wisdom and
clarity, bringing hope and respite from the horrors of war?
What you're doing is the diametrically opposed form of ministry. I hate to call it, but you're quite literally a false prophet, and all you are
bringing to the table is confusion - you're causing devastation to the fields that you claim to tend. Literally seems you're going for a scorched
earth sort of thing in fact.
Seriously, be quiet (Be still & know...) and start reading CS Lewis, then try reading a bit of Smith Wigglesworth, then have another go at the Bible.
While the Bible is very difficult to understand and even comprehend in terms of our modern cultural mind-sets, once you digest it in the light of
appropriate context (it was tribal, it was brutal, it was long since the way of the world, etc..) - a single focus of message shines through,
demonstrated in the following two points:
- Work justice (keep law & order), love mercy (be forgiving and bless each other as often as possible, don't be punitive), walk humbly (don't
presume you are owed anything by your fellow man without doing service in return, repudiate pride and seek wisdom in light of the knowledge that you
are a small part of a very big world/universe). This is the Old Testament general theme which is repeated often...
- Love your neighbour as yourself, place all your faith & trust in the notion that there is a loving God, who has a good plan for you personally, for
He is infinite, and therefore is able to care for every creature in the vast and near-infinite Cosmos. (Main gist of New Testament with correlative
exposition concerning some portions of the OT) The darkness is overcome in love, and the ramifications of injustices and hardships on Earth do not
reflect your great value in the eyes of God; one day, there will be only light, and we cannot even comprehend how wondrous our experience of Being
If you're still confused about the nature of God, read the Sermon on the Mount.
If you're still confused and feel like talking nonsense about blood types & Planet X, then see a doctor and discuss your bizarre delusions, and ask
for some assistance in coming to terms with actual reality. Sincerely, I really hope you catch the drift and delete all those nonsense videos before
you do yourself some mischief.
To all other readers, please forgive the errant chap who clearly doesn't know the first thing about mythology, comparative religion, esoteric
philosophy, hermetic tradition, mysticism or the Tao. I actually think he needs therapy.
If anyone is interested in having a discussion of matters of faith (a rare thing in these days and times of rampant materialism - and yes, I have a
32" smart TV in my bedroom, so I'm immersed in it too) then please feel free to U2U me, or perhaps check out my next thread, which this silly
so-and-so has inspired me to write as a refutation of his garbled garbage.
CS Lewis actually predicted the demise of traditional inquiry into matters of faith, but thankfully - before heartbreak had struck him too many times
in his poetically tragic personal life - he had left a wonderful legacy in the form of the Narnia Chronicles, and a plethora of fantastic lectures,
essays & books for adults. He was an Oxford Don, but took a professorship at Cambridge when he was 56. You can read his works today and feel like
they were written yesterday - he has a timeless quality which shines through in his expositions of the Christian faith (he was a Classics graduate
initially, and loved medieval literature - Cambridge actually created the first ever chair of Medieval Literature specifically in response to his
Think straight, shoot straight, and love with all your heart.
