Only theology verified by personal experience has any
validity as one man's theology is another man's belly laugh.

"The best theology would need no advocates: it would prove itself." - Karl Barth

"When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations,
the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic." - Dresden James

"The social world that shapes theologians' thought patterns also shapes them as believers, not just as intellectuals. The social setting is thus the most crucial aspect in shaping patterns of thought." - Jon Sobrino Jesus the Liberator

"A society of packaged fulfillment, administered desire, managerialized politics and consumerist economics is unlikely to cut to the depth where theological questions can ever be properly raised. " - Terry Eagleton

"I can tell you as an insider that you don't want to invest too much in the spoutings of theologians. You might think that there must be some secret knowledge that theologians learn, that gives them a special kind of authority not available to normal people. But I spent seven years in graduate school, and if there had been that kind of secret knowledge, I would have found it. The truth is, theologians have no secret knowledge about life, because their courses aren't about life. Theologians are academics, and their courses are restricted to thinking about life from the perspective
of their religion. But wisdom comes from living through life experiences and being able to reflect on them in ways that shed light – and that's not what theologians do." - Davidson Loehr


Nation of Islam - white humans originated through genetic experiments.

Jehovah's Witness - blood transfusion will contaminate the soul and 3 does not equal 1.

Kabbalah - red string wards off the Evil Eye, the Torah is the name of YHVH. Kabbalah, descended from the tradition of the Sadducees, is the ‘secret doctrine' of ‘elect' Jews. Those deemed worthy comprehend hidden teachings in the written Torah and, through mystical techniques, make direct contact with YHVH. Among these mystical techniques are rapid recitation of the ‘Holy Name of God' (YHVH, or Tetragrammaton), meditation on the 11 Sephiroth of the Tree of Life which are believed to be emanations of YHVH, learning to use the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet as force-carrying energy patterns which serve as the building blocks of the cosmos, and, finally, by ascending on the Chariot Throne through the use of the Merkabah actually transcending the space/time limitations of the physical world to attain physical immortality along with the ability to physically modify reality through telekinesis.

"The most hidden, secretive part of Kabbalah, commonly known as "practical Kabbalah", involves use of hidden knowledge to affect the world in ways that could be described as magic. The Talmud and other sources ascribe supernatural activities to many great rabbis. Some rabbis pronounced a name of YHVH and ascended into heaven to consult with YHVH and the angels on issues of great public concern. One scholar is said to have created an artificial man by reciting various names of YHVH. Much later stories tell of a rabbi who created a man out of clay and brought it to life by putting in its mouth a piece of paper with a name of YHVH on it." - Mechon Mamre




scientotlogy

Scientology - After spending years and tens of thousands of dollars sycophants reach Theological Level III were they learn about Xenu the galactic warlord, who 75 million years ago was in charge of 76 overpopulated planets. Xenu brought trillions of these alien beings, Teegeeack, to Earth on spaceships and placed them in select volcanoes. Xenu then vaporized the Teegeeack with hydrogen bombs scattering to the winds thetans which were then rounded up in electronic traps and implanted with false ideas. Corrupted thetans attach themselves to people thus corrupting them and leading them to drug and alcohol abuse, addiction, depression and other psychological and social ailments that only Scientology "classes" and "auditing" employing "e-meters" can cure.

L. Ron Hubbard founded the Church of Scientology after a break with Anton Szandor LaVey, Howard Stanton Levey, founder of the Church of Satan.

2009 Paris, France court convicts the Church of Scientology's French office, its library and six of its leaders of organized fraud. Investigators said the group pressured members into paying large sums of money for questionable financial gain and used ''commercial harassment'' against recruits. Belgium, Germany and other European countries have been criticized by the US State Department for labeling Scientology as a cult or sect and enacting laws to restrict its operations. If there was any question as to the alignment of the federal government this pretty much answers that question.



Anton Le Vey

Zoroastrian - everything that exists is either male or female, dark or light, good or evil, black or white.

Lifespring Inc - modification of self-image through deep cathartic psychological insight by experiencing completely every feeling and living only in the present moment which brings lasting happiness and self-realization through the grandiose delusion of the ultimate limitlessness of an individual's power.

University Network - exceedingly complex mythology incorporating numerology, astrology and William Eugene Scottism that includes the Pyramids, Atlantis, Roswell UFO's, Stonehenge, Amityville poltergeists, Nikola Tesla, the Bermuda Triangle, The Spear of Destiny and even the Philadelphia Experiment while preaching that a adherent's path to heaven and position in heaven is dependent upon the amount of money contributed to William Eugene Scott, Incorporated.

Mormon - Jesus appeared in America after his death on the cross; God is made of flesh and blood, is married to a heavenly Mother and is fully comprehensible; 3 does not equal 1; there is a secret handshake and everybody gets to wear itchy underwear. There are three levels in heaven and the "chosen" become as God.(see transcendental temptation)

Swedenborgianism - There is one God = Christ = Holy Spirit = Divine Trinity. Saving faith is to believe in the redemptive powers of Christ and to live a life of charity. All evil originates in mankind and is to be shunned. Good actions are encouraged by Christ, necessary for life and should be done. Good acts shoul be credited to Christ.

In Swedenborgianism one's fate after death is according to the character one has acquired in life; specifically that those governed by the compassion of the Lord or the compassion of being useful to others are in heaven, and that those governed by compassion of self or the compassion of worldly things are in hell.




Soren Kierkegaard

Søren Kierkegaard

Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard asserted that the best theology was the most ridiculous. Søren Kierkegaard believed one cannot have true faith unless one is capable of transcending rationality. Søren Kierkegaard believed that the individuals betray religion when they try to make rational sense of it, such as ‘creation scientists' who assert that the Bible is a scientific theory.

"Søren Kierkegaard was convinced that Christianity must be life centered
and so resisted passionately any tendencies that might make it thought centered." - Vernard Eller

"Søren Kierkegaard understood that the purpose of thinking outside the proscribed culturally conditioned limits of thought was what was necessary to propel an individual into a greater understanding and awareness of reality. Interesting enough this is also precisely what a Zen Koan, a succinct paradoxical statement or question used as a meditation discipline (thought problem), sets out to accomplish." - Morning Star Athbhreith Athbheochan Kwisatz Haderach Druid



John Calvin

theocratic absolutism

Theocratic absolutism has been around longer than theory, and its effects have been far more deadly.

You do not need to believe in God to have a theocracy; some theocracies are atheist.

A system based on theocratic absolutism has these characteristics:

In theocratic absolutism there are 'sacred writings', a scripture whose word is inerrant and may not be doubted, which has such absolute authority that it trumps all other authority. It may be the Septuagint, the Babylonian Talmud or the Code of Hammurabi.

Everything, even the discoveries of science , must be judged against what sacred scripture says, and if there is a contradiction, scripture wins. This sacred scripture might be the Bible, it might be the Q'uran, it might be the works of Karl Marx, it might be the ideology of neoconservatism or it might be "words" of the "apostles" of the "Apostolic Culmination".

There are 'Doctors of Theology', theocratic absolutists, "apostles", "prophets", "think tank experts" like Henry Kissinger who interpret the 'sacred writings', the 'holy book' or the current up-to-date-cutting-edge market data needed to make decisions in the fast paced volatile market of ever changing "real world conditions" and make pronouncements on what it all means - I meant predictions! It might be Saint Augustine, it might be Saddam Hussein, it might be Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov - "Lenin" or it might be Milton Freidman.

There is a priesthood with special powers and privileges, there is close control of the news media through manipulative press releases, frenetic condemnation of ideas not fitting neatly within the parameters of the accepted dogma and new initiates are "sold on the product" fanatics.

The Roman Catholic Church of the Counter Reformation invented the word 'propaganda'.


imperialism

Imperial Christianity

"Hitler has a deep respect for the Catholic church and the Jesuit order; not because of their Christian doctrine, but because of the 'machinery' they have elaborated and controlled, their hierarchical system, their extremely clever tactics, their knowledge of human nature and their wise use of human weaknesses in ruling over believers." - Hermann Rauschning

State religion must sanction war or it will be quickly replaced with another that does. Constantine cobbled together the prevalent mythological thought (political thought) of the Roman Empire to produce the State religion of Roman Catholicism.

Students of history who question the disappearance of the Jewish congregations at that time fail to understand that the Hellenized Hebrew Saul of Tarsus created the Imperial State religion of Christianity. Through his writing the Hellenized Hebrew Saul of Tarsus converted the Hellenized Jews into Pauline Christians.



spirituality

"Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they shall be called sons of God."

Matthew 5:9


Roman Catholicism has been one of the most barbaric religions.

Roman Catholicism got its biggest break with Constantine never looked back, slaughtering all non-conformers by blade, fire, crucifixion, impalement, iron maidens and devices made strictly to kill in as agonizing a fashion as possible.

Ancient scientific pioneers were ruthlessly exterminated.

Giordana Bruno was burned at the stake in 1586 for claiming the Earth revolved around the sun.

Nicholas Copernicus and Galileo Galilei were branded heretics.

The dogma that traps a man's mind is used by unscrupulous leaders to destroy critical thinking.



Vatican arms dealerfaith in God


After many renditions, renewels, remakes, reformations and revivals a beautiful and wonderful way of living based on Jesus' Words has been defiled, debased and corrupted into Imperial Christianity, known as Roman Catholicism, an evolved religion of Hellenism based on a literal belief in fantastic supernatural happenings centered on the glorification of the individual ego which is physically embarked upon a journey to conquer the supernatural evil penetrating natural reality, this world, as seen in the Kingdom Now/Dominion/Joel's Army, British Israel, Christain Zionist and Manifest Sons movements.

Imperial Christianity is closely aligned ideologically with the Talmud and Zionism. Both wish to create heaven on Earth for sycophants at the point of the sword. Both intend to cause all non-conforming ideology, religion, social culture and political expression to be exterminated.

"Jews are the real liars and bloodhounds, who have perverted and falsified the entire Scriptures from beginning to end without ceasing with their interpretations. The sun never did shine on a more bloodthirsty and revengeful people as the followers of the Talmud, who imagine to be the people of YHVH, and who desire to and think they must murder and crush the heathen. And the foremost undertaking which they expect of their messiah is that he should slay and murder the whole world with the sword." - Martin Luther

The Imperial Christian emphasis on individual ego calls on the individual to do nothing more than believe and spread the dogma - the mark of all cults.

A true religion calls upon the individual to critically examine the possible consequences of planned actions, both long and short term, and to refrain from taking those actions if any of extensions of the Creation will suffer grievous harm due to those actions.

God's Creation being identified as the fragile perishable ecosystems, plant and animal life, humans included, that the Creator so graciously bestowed upon the Earth.

A true religion frees the disciple of detrimental emotional baggage, teaches the disciple how to live life in a way that is beneficial to both the disciple and to every other individual that comes into contact with the disciple.

RELIGION that FAILS to do this is FALSE !




John Hagee Zionist

Christian Zionism

"Our whole purpose is to has hasten the End times" - Bill McCartney co-founder of the charismatic Promise Keepers movement

"We are the generation that will probably see the rapture of the church. In Christian theology, the first thing that happens when Christ returns to Earth is the judgement of nations. Twenty-five years ago, I called a meeting of neoevangelists to discuss such an effort, and the conversation didn't last an hour. This time, I called and they all came and they all agreed to speak up for Israel." - neoevangelist John C. Hagee, founder of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, President and CEO

"Christ commissioned his disciples to go to the ends of the Earth and tell everyone how they could achieve eternal life. As we advance around the Earth we'll be shortening the time needed to fulfill that Great Commission. Then, the Bible says, The End will come."- James Davis, Global Pastors Network

"The neoevangelists don't pay much attention to New Testament teachings such as those found in Matthew that focus on social justice. Instead they rummage around in the Old Testament for passages that support their political agenda, which is out of sync with New Testament principles." - John Rossmann

"Anything I can do for the Jewish people, I will do. Mormons believe the Jewish people are the chosen people, just like the Old Testament says. I feel sorry I'm not Jewish sometimes." - Senator Orin Hatch

"Mr. Hatch unbuttons his white dress shirt to expose the golden mezuzah necklace he wears every day. Mezuzahs also adorn the doorways of his homes in Washington and Utah. Mr. Hatch keeps a Torah in his Senate office." - Mark Leibovich, December 8, 200

"I usually started by taking them to the Hatikva Quarter and showed them the shabby living quarters where Sephardic Jews are forced to live - as many as 18 living in a two-room apartment. Sharing the apartments would be cockroaches, mice, rats, ants and lizards. While in the Hatikva Quarter, I would show them Hagana Street with its small shops where Sephardic Jews tried to eke out a living. The 6 block area on Hayarkon between Allenby Street and Frishman Street would shock those on my tour. They would see Sephardic prostitutes as young as age 14 hustling customers on the streets. I wanted to show as many people from America as possible that Israel is far from being the wonderful country the American people have been led to believe through Zionist propaganda." - Jack Berstein on giving Christian Zionists the tour of Israel

Global Evangelism Television broadcasts on 120 full power television stations, 110 radio stations and three networks" - has helped 12,000 Russian Jews move to Israel, has donated several million dollars to Israeli and wears a Jewish prayer shawl.

"Twenty goyim will cling to each thread of our prayer shawls, pleading to serve us as protection against our divine judgement." - Yossi Klein Halevi

With John C. Hagee's help the United States guaranteed $10 billion in loans for Israel's resettlement of hundreds of thousands of immigrants from the former Soviet Union. The Russians émigrés made it possible to build the wall between the Palestinians and the Israelis as the new immigrants were willing to provide the physical unskilled labor that the Palestinians once provided.

"I truly believe John Hagee is at once a daring, beautiful person - and quite dangerous." - Orthodox Rabbi Brad Hirschfield

"I'm grateful for all the wonderful Christian neoevangelists wanting to help us. Christians are now Israel's best lobbyists in America." - Gershon Solomon, spokesman for Jerusalem's Temple Institute

The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ) is the largest Christian Zionist organization but other influential Christian Zionist organizations form a broad coalition:

The American Messianic Fellowship; Bridges for Peace;the Evangelical Sisterhood of Mary; the Council of Christians and Jews;Christian Friends of Israel; the Church's Ministry Among Jewish People, also known as The Israel Trust of the Anglican Church within Israel; Intercessors For Britain; Jews for Jesus ; The Messianic Jewish Alliance America; and Prayer Friends of Israel.

Leading contemporary Christian Zionists include Charles Dyer, John C. Hagee, Mike Evans, Jerry Falwell, Dave Hunt, Hal Lindsey, Pat Robertson and John Walvoord.

"The Jew is not satisfied with de-Christianizing, he Judiazizes, he destroys the Catholic or Protestant faith, he provokes indifference but he imposes his idea of the world of morals and of life upon those whose faith he ruins. He works at his age old task, the annilation of the religion of Christ."- Lazare Marcus Manassé Bernard*




resistence

"We should examine our faith constantly in the sweet light of human reason rather than believing, as the White Queen said to Alice, "six impossible things before breakfast." Faith is only an approximation, like memory; I am never sure I have the real thing in my grasp. If I could, I'd return to early Christianity, before it became a state religion under Constantine; before its connection to the state, when it was a company of friends whose inspired leader once said that the one without sin should pick up the first stone." - Nora Gallagher


dominionism

Kingdom Now / Dominion / Joel's Army

Lay hands

The concept of a Holy War or Jihad is common to Imperial Christianity, Zionism and Wahhabism.

"There is no such thing as 'Christian' soldiers. They may call themselves 'Christian', but those who follow the teachings of Jesus strive to compassion their neighbor and do not kill." - Barbara Aquin

Kingdom Now/Dominion/Joel's Army mythology is a resurrection of the cult of Yahweh.

Basic premise: Man lost dominion over the Earth when Adam and Eve succumbed to Satan's temptation in the Garden of Eden. The Father "lost control" of the Earth to Satan at that time, ("serpent seed" occurs - Cain spawn of Satan) and has since been looking for a "covenant people" who will be an "extension," or "expression," on Earth of the Father and take dominion back from Satan.

According to Jesus the Kingdom of God is within (or among) people unlike Kingdom Now / Dominion / Joel's Army and Christian Zionism mythology. Jesus' Kingdom of God is approached through understanding and is entered into through the acceptance of Law of God as reality with the awe of a child - this is spiritual rebirth within the will of God.

The proponents of Kingdom Now / Dominion / Joel's Army and Christian Zionism mythology expect every human in the world to conform to a vision of impossible perfection. They will and have resorted to the same methods that the Spanish Inquisition, New Spain's Inquisition and the Roman Inquisition adhered to in the attempt to assure conformity of thought.

Kingdom Now / Dominion / Joel's Army and Christian Zionism mythologies are based on Manifest Sons mythology which was carried over from the time of William Marrion Branham by Earl Pearly Paulk - adherents are "little gods" exercising autonomous sovereignty within their spheres of dominion.


Earl Pearly Paulk

Earl Pearly Paulk
1960 Earl Pearly Paulk founded "Harvester Ministry", a non-profit corporation, with his wife, his brother Donald, and his sister-in-law Clareice in an area of Atlanta called "Little Five Points."


1972 The fellowship became known as Cathedral of the Holy Spirit at Chapel Hill Harvester famed for combining visual arts, particularly the dance team, with a liturgical style.

Earl Pearly Paulk neoevangelist television and radio programs were seen and heard on Trinity Broadcasting Network. Earl Pearly Paulk was a semi-regular guest on Trinity Broadcasting Network's "Praise the Lord."

1982 Earl Pearly Paulk is ordained a bishop in the International Communion of Charismatic Churches, a non-profit 501c3.

Earl Pearly Paulk has been involved in many sex scandals spanning several years.

Donnie Earl (D.E.) Paulk, nephew of Earl Pearly Paulk and senior pastor of the Cathedral at Chapel Hill, informed the congregation that he is actually the biological son of Earl Pearly Paulk, and not the son of Donald Paulk.

A court-ordered DNA test confirmed this and Earl Pearly Paulk is forced to resign as archbishop of the International Communion of Charismatic Churches (ICCC).

2006 Earl Pearly Paulk swears in a deposition that the only woman he ever had sex with outside of marriage was Monica Manning Brewer. As part of the same lawsuit 8 women testified they had sex under duress with Earl Pearly Paulk.

2008 Earl Pearly Paulk is found guilty of lying under oath, a felony, his Bible College is closed and his television show canceled.

"I doubt Jesus would support the violent invasions of sovereign nations, resulting in the death and wounding of hundreds of thousands of innocent people; the arrest, torture and imprisonment of innocent people; tax cuts favoring the wealthiest among us; the largest debt in America's history; not supporting the military with proper equipment; cutting veterans' benefits; higher costs for education, healthcare and housing; more environmental pollution, bribery scandals, lying, crony-ism, greed or corruption. Why do so many (neo)evangelists Christians believe their preachers instead of the facts?" - Greg Garcia

"Yea,
though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me.
Thy .50-caliber and 240, they comfort me."
- Captain David Burris, chaplain


"Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they shall be called sons of God."
- Matthew 5:9


"History's moral tragedies were often accompanied by clergy who were timidly and quietly complicit with the destructive government policies of their day. Reasonable people no doubt differ on how to identify and solve today's moral issues. It is, however, unreasonable to claim that Jesus and the other prophets do not have something to say about a doomed, unjust, immoral war; state sanctioned torture; international silence in the face of genocide and state sanctioned murder through the death penalty."- Ed Bacon, Rector, All Saints Episcopal Church Pasadena


Word of Faith

Word of Faith

What’s Wrong with the Word Faith Movement?

Word of Faith consists of two distinct yet closely related factions:

1) Norman Vincent Peale / Robert H. Schuller Positive/Possibility fellowships, with their roots in the New Thought of Essek William Kenyon;

2) Kenneth E. Hagin/Kenneth Copeland Positive Confession Word of Faith fellowships.

Both have their roots in William Essek Kenyon's New Thought and William Marrion Branham Manifest Sons/Latter Rain dogma.

"High achievers spot rich opportunities swiftly, make big decisions quickly and move into action immediately. Follow these principles and you can make your dreams come true." - Robert H. Schuller

Word of Faith dogma includes the following ideologies:

Christians are "gods" who can use their own divinity to "speak" things into existence, those that are not healthy and wealthy lack 'faith', 'faith' is a "supernatural force" capable of being used for good or evil.

The use of negative words and thoughts release the power of Satan, while positive words and thoughts release the power of the Lord.

Kenneth Copeland, Kenneth E. Hagin, Benny Hinn, Paul Crouch, Oral Roberts, Richard Roberts, John Avanzini, Reinhard Bonnke, Rodney Howard-Browne, Morris Cerullo, Robert Tilton and almost all the celebrities on Trinity Broadcasting Network practice Word of Faith.

"You are as much the incarnation of god as Jesus Christ was." - Kenneth E. Hagin



Morris Cerullo

"Did you know that from the beginning of time the whole purpose of god was to reproduce himself?... And when we stand up here, brother, you're not looking at Morris Cerullo; you're looking at God." - Morris Cerullo*

1990 Morris Cerullo purchased the assets of Jim Bakker's bankrupt ministry, "Praise The Lord" along with "Praise The Lord" cable television network, The Inspirational Network, which was renamed INSP - The Inspiration Network.

2009 CEO David Cerullo, Morris' son, builds a 9,000-square-foot $4 million home on a lot that overlooks Lake Keowee in . At the same time the "ministry" laid of workers, froze wages and stopped making contributions to 401(k) retirement accounts. The network's revenues are expected to approach $100 million, largely donations from people who are told God favors those who donate. David Cerullo defends his $1.5 million in compensation even though IRS rules bar nonprofits from paying "unreasonable compensation."

"Being poor is a sin.
The only time people were poor in the Bible
is when they were under a curse."
Robert Tilton

Christian Televangelist Robert Tilton Fraud Scandal

Robert Tilton during the Last Days of Israel

Robert Tilton bought 5,000 hours per month of broadcast airtime for his Success-N-Life television program which was broadcast in all American broadcasting markets until it was discovered Robert Tilton threw away prayer requests without reading them, keeping only money and valuables sent to him by viewers which garnered him an estimated $84 million per year.

"Remember television neoevangelists Jim Bakker, Jimmy Swaggart, Robert Tilton and Oral Roberts? They’re all the same. They offer up the comfort of the Lord and in return use threats of damnation if donations slow down." - Diane Dimond




Jesus the Tekton

polytheistic religious thought in Christianity

polytheistic Christianity is based on Valentinian Gnosticism

"In the so-called monotheism of today, in addition to God there is also an acknowledgment of many transcendent beings capable of influencing reality: The son of God, the mother of God, the devil, angels and demons immediately come to mind." - R.H. Joseph

"Iblis can enter a thousand beings
everyone that Iblis enters becomes like him.
Iblis is in whoever freezes your passion for living
Iblis is hidden under his skin.

When Iblis doesn't find a physical form,
he'll invade your imagination and make it drag you into evil:
from your thoughts Iblis' destruction will stream,
from thoughts even of peace or work,
or the compassion of knowledge or of home and family
no thought is safe from his twisting!"

- Rumi

"Lucifer's Fall represents the very beginnings of separation from God, just as the technology of fire was humanity's first abrogation and arrogation of nature's cycle of energy flow, marking the beginning of our separation from nature. Then in the figure of Satan, we have the further legend of the Devil at war with Heaven, or trying to set himself above God, a theme echoed in the Babel story, the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, and countless other myths. This represents our campaign to becomes the lords and masters of nature; it is the domestication of the wild, the Technological Program, the World Under Control. Just as in myth, the war against Heaven is ultimately doomed, and the pain endured in this losing campaign is proportional to the intensity with which it is waged. The failure of the technological fix, the failure of the program to bring all the world under control, we address by intensifying the effort to control, sacrificing more and more of Life to War. In the modern era, we have sold away our very lives to the enslavement of time and money." - Charles Eisenstein


Satan did not exist in the minds of the ancient monotheistic Hebrews. Valentinian Gnosticism, best expressed in the Gospel of Truth, names a heirarchy of beings called Aeons which are also named in the The Apocryphon of John. Satan had a legion of demons and Christ had the ability to call on a host of angels.

"For from the indestructible light, which is the Christ, through the Will of God the four lights (appeared) from the divine Autogenes (Christ). And the three (are) will, thought, and life. And the four powers (are) understanding grace, perception, and prudence. And there are three other aeons with him: understanding, compassion, and idea. And the fourth aeon was placed over the fourth light. And there are three other aeons with him: perfection, peace, and wisdom. These are the four lights which attend the divine Autogenes, (and) these are the twelve aeons which attend the son of the mighty one, the Autogenes, the Christ, through the Will of God." - Apocryphon of John

Nearly all the converts to Gnostic Christianity were Hellenized Hebrews with an understanding of the evolving theologies of both the Saducees and the Pharisees. In the Apocryphon of John a whole heirachy of demons and angels is described.

"Yaltabaoth had a multitude of faces, more than all of them, so that he could put a face before all of them, according to his desire, when he is in the midst of Seraphim. He shared his fire with them; therefore he became lord over them. Because of the power of the glory he possessed of his mother's light, he called himself god. And he did not obey the place from which he came. And he united the seven powers in his thought with the authorities which were with him. And the powers began: the first one, goodness, created a bone-soul; and the second, foreknowledge, created a sinew-soul; the third, divinity, created a flesh-soul; and the fourth, the lordship, created a marrow-soul; the fifth, kingdom created a blood-soul; the sixth, envy, created a skin-soul; the seventh, understanding, created a hair-soul.

The four chief demons are: Ephememphi, who belongs to enchantment, Yoko, who belongs to desire, Nenentophni, who belongs to grief, Blaomen, who belongs to fear. And the mother of them all is Aesthesis (sensuous perception). And from the four demons passions came forth. And from grief (came) envy, jealousy, regret, humilation, callousness, anxiety, mourning, etc. And from enchantment much wickedness arises, lust, empty pride, and similar things. And from desire (comes) anger, wrath, frustration, bitterness, anguish, and similar things. And from fear (comes) dread, terror, suffering, and shame. All of these are like useful things as well as evil things. But the insight into their true (character) is Anaro, who is the head of the material soul, for it belongs with the seven senses, Aesthesis. " - The Apocryphon of John

Traditional Christian fellowships find the behavioral practices of the Charismatic Pentecostal revival movements - Healing, Latter Rain, Toronto, The Call, Charismatic, Apostolic Culmination, , Manifested Sons - disconcerting, unnerving and unsettling. Fits of uncontrollable "Holy Laughter" during a Bible reading are rightfully seen as mocking theWord of God.

Supernatural spiritual "rewards" may come as "speaking in tongues, "prophecy", "slain in the spirit", "Holy Laughter", barking like a dog, shaking like a leaf in a storm, visions of people and places described on live television with outstanding skills of oratory and rhetoric - these are manifestations, to be sure, but there is no evidence that such behavior is an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

Jesus the Tannaim cast out "demons." Jesus the Therapeutae healed people that exhibited erratic behaviors that were attributed to "possession by demons." Jesus healed individuals that exhibited the same types of behavior that is now called an "outpouring of the Holy Spirit."

Demons historically are related to deviant behavior. Deviant behavior due to brain damage was attributed to unseen entities named demons.

Exorcism is an attempt to change the behavior expressed by the individual. Today most exorcists come in the form of psychiatrists. Frontal lobotomies were used to exorcize "demons" up until the 1986. Now neuroleptics like Thorazine are used to create chemical frontal lobotomies thus dispelling those nasty demons.

"In proportion as mind and heart are fixed upon the glorified Lord Jesus Christ, we may count on the Holy Spirit's enabling. But if we make the Spirit Himself the object of our aspirations and worship, some false spirit may counterfeit the true and take us for a prey." - Sir Robert Anderson






"If a man should conquer in battle a thousand and a thousand more, and another man should conquer himself, his would be the greater victory, because the greatest of victories is the victory over oneself; and neither the gods in heaven above nor the demons down below can turn into defeat the victory of such a man." - Dhammapada

strategic-level spiritual warfare

"It was exhilarating, thrilling, reviving, rewarding - everything an angelic warrior was made for!

The Host of Heaven had waited so long and had built up such fervor that when the signal finally came, they broke over the crests of the mountains on every side like a violent, shimmering ocean wave and showered down like hail upon the dark cloud of demons in the valley, scattering them like dust before the wind, routing, battling, swinging, and pushing down, down, down toward the Aspen Institute.

Tal, at the crest of the wave, dove like a hawk, his wings straight back, his sword a needle of light at the end of his outstretched arm. His war cry could be heard above all the tumult, and his sword was the first to strike. They flew into the heart of the black cloud, like piercing a black, boiling thunderhead.

The swords of spirits clashed, wings slapped and fluttered, red smoke fogged the air.

Tal kicked, cut, spun like a scythe, and fought his way downward, downward. He could hear the roar of Guilo, the Strength of Many, just above and to the left, batting at demons and mowing them down, flipping them sideways to meet other blades, kicking and grabbing what hides he could find, cutting a widening swath, gutting the cloud at its core." - Frank E. Perretti - author This Present Darkness


Strategic-level spiritual warfare, popular in the Apostolic Culmination, often involves going to the highest place in a city or region, like a mountain top, with attempts to bind "territorial spirits," the "high-ranking demons" that rule over specific geographical regions. The idea is that - if their demonic grip is broken - then the people who live in that region will respond en masse to the Word of God, and they will be freed of evil strongholds of lust, greed, envy, gluttony, sloth, pride and wrath.

Many fellowships have eagerly adopted strategic-level spiritual warfare, believing it's the key to fulfilling the "Great Commission" which will usher in the "Kingdom Age". Adherents take part in showy ritualized ceremonies, where they seek to directly confront territorial spirits by name.

Apostles of the Apostolic Culmination anoint adherents with specific supernatural powers. John Arnott anoint adherents with a "new anointing" he calls the "Sword of the Lord" or "Warrior Anointing" which brings "supernatural power".

The apostles of the Apostolic Culmination sell a form of supernaturalism that is suspiciously similar to fantasy video games. Just like the fantasy hero adherents are anointed with supernatural powers so they may attack greater and larger demonic forces. Just like video game manufactures charge consumers for their games, Apostolic Culmination adherents are charged a fee to receive the next new "anointing." (And if you could not attend the "conference" you can purchase a DVD of past events and past training sessions for a nominal fee. If you have 'faith' then you too will receive the "anointing!")

Strategic-level spiritual warfare comes dangerously close to shamanism which may culminate in the belief that an individual can control and be controlled or possessed by supernatural entities - angels and demons in polytheistic neoavangelic cults and animal spirits in shamanistic cultures.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new religious ideology to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of the religion aptly named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a “hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world central banking system, mass media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through mass media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
