The problem with evil in our world is that when they give you advice you just do it.
There is no understanding of how Satanists in the music industry and the popular culture deceive and sabotage everyone.
You are doing it now!
Listening to the Satanic voices in the music.
But make no mistake.
They will tempt you and betray you.
Even to hell.
But God does not judge us.
He forgives us.
And invites us Home.

Death is a theological fiction.
There is no state, no place, no condition; no substance, spirit, or kingdom of Death.
And there is no devil to rule it.
These things derive in Christianity from the writings of St. Paul.
Paul was educated in an extreme Pharisaic school which practised strict celibacy.
These ideas were imported from Persian mythology in the ancient world.
But they do not correspond to the reality.
In reality there is only God's Love.
Any lyrics or images of death come from Satanism in rock music and popular entertainment.
These may affect your mind.
But not your spiritual condition.
Or your fate.
So immerse yourself in God's abundant Life and Love.
And banish death from your mind forever.

Dealing with sexual expression as a single gay Christian is like navigating between whirlpools.
On one side is moral panic and fear leading to total abstinence.
On the other side is economic exploitation and cynicism leading to addiction.
We must navigate between these two extremes.
And not only that but we must negotiate the mental waters between moral condemnation and self-destructive negativity.
Sex is not bad or dirty as Satanists would have you think.
We do not need to be punished.
What we need is a positive attitude which is not controlled by evil.
A healthy moderation.
Only then will we be free.

"The Lord works vindication and justice for all who are oppressed,
He made known his ways to Moses, his acts to the people of Israel,
"The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love," Psalm 103:6-8 (NRSV)
"As a father has compassion for his children, so the Lord has compassion for those who fear him." Psalm 103:13 (NRSV)
In Psalm 103 David echoes the revelation of Moses then predicts the vision of Jesus.
These passages reflect the benevolent nature of God - a God who is loving and merciful like a father.
This is not the angry, vindictive God that some imagine - a projection of worldly authorities inspired by fear.
But the beautiful and constant Father of all.

What I would say
to all his admirers
Love esteems Him.
Love edifies Him.
Love redeems Him.
Love respects Him.
Love satisfies Him.
Love honors Him.
Love heals Him.
Love blesses Him.
Love saves Him.

An Alternative Interpretation*:
The Hippie Generation can be represented as woman (Venus/Libra) clothed in the Sun (Leo); the Great Red Dragon is the Devil (Scorpio/Mars) which is the Satanism in rock music.
The woman fled into the wilderness to Hippie communes in the bush.
The water poured out from the mouth of the serpent is the flood of evil unleashed by Generation X in the 1980s.
And the Dragon went off to make war with her children - Generation Y and the Millennials.
But the Dragon (Scorpio) is defeated.
And superseded by New Jerusalem (Aquarius).
(*Astrology was the major instrument of prophecy in the ancient world.)
