Oh I gotta chime in on this one here!!!!
U see I am a Christian Mystic, and why do I use this label??? Because I followed/follow the teachings of Christ and they led my to direct Mystical
transcendent realities, i.e. Spiritual Enlightenment. It was as if I was given the red pill in the matrix and can see behind the curtain of
There is no way out of Christianity for me and many others like myself who have experienced and still do the Divine realities and infinite Love that
comes from God.
Dogma has always been around. There was in the year 1054 something called the great schism between the Mystic way and the dogmatic way. The dogmatic
way became the Roman Catholic Church which influenced western Christianity. So most of the things you see and here are dogma, but whth discernment you
can still find preachers and churches where the Divine Holy Spirit is alive and working!!!!!
All the reasons you've given for the imploding of Christianity have been given for hundreds of years and even famous Marxist communists predicted the
destruction of Christianity in Russia and Europe. Guess what!!!!! It's still there stronger than ever.
The stuff going on within the Church is mostly emotions due to music, but God is beyond emotions and beyond music. So people like yourself, the author
of the OP, I presume have given it a shot, tried it out, half assedly, and came away with nothing form it. If my assumption is wrong, I ask
But this half-assed approach to God has always gone on and skeptics and doubters have always come out of it. To find God, you have o give all of
yourself over to God.....then the doors of the infinite unlock.
And the reason no one will ever be able to get rid of Christianity...... is because the true Christians who are indwelled with the Spirit of God and
have Enlightenment...... these are the foundations of what this truth and way of life is all about. Get rid of the skeptics, the doubters, those that
fight against other denominations, the dogmatists, the fundamentalists, the emotionalists, and what do you have left over????
You will have a small tiny handful of individuals that are in Union and Enlightenment with God. I'm not talking about faith.....faith is for babies,
including baby Christians new to the way. What I'm talking about is knowing 100% through direct experience that God is real as is Jesus.
In this handful that knows 100% that Jesus is real...... that is all you would ever need on this planet to re-inflame the rest of the world into this
I would bet my soul, my family, all my belongings, money, car, friends, life that this way will never die no matter what anyone thinks.
This is real life, and transcendent beyond logic and reason way of life. All I can do is love others and have compassion, especially for topics and
the authors of such topics as these. It stirs the flame in my soul that I have for the Love of God and makes me realize how much harder I have to pray
and speak to people to shake them out of their adamic (naturalistic nature) so they can transcend this B.S. form of life the majority lives.
I still sin, but its been minimized to the smallest of degrees to how I used to be, and I just sit back and let the Spirit of God within me do all the
work and point out all the faults and how to continue with the minimization of sin. But you wouldnt understand any of this because those that dont
have the Spirit think all of this is foolishness anyway so your in a self perpetuating mental trap.
Everything you said in this OP is relative-earthly-temporary truth. As the great Russian socioligist Sorokin said that these things in cycles will all
play themselves out, including what you posted. However my dear friend, the truths and transcendent realities of God are timeless, they are not bound
by change, time, influence, or anything else that affects the things you posted about. And these unchangeable truths/realities are the only permanence
in a temporary world of temporay earthly existences. So with that said, what do you really think will outlast what?
