What is the relevance of Christianity in a world that is ruled by brutal corporate plutocrats who own everything and control the media, who even demand our philosophical assent?
A world where music and entertainment are saturated with evil.
These are dark days indeed.
But Jesus is the Light of the World.
He manifests the Light of God in our world.
And what is that Light?
To love God and love your neighbor.
To treat others as you would want to be treated yourself.
To have compassion and mercy for all living beings, even your enemies.
Surely this is needed more than ever.
But it must be remembered that it was the rich and powerful who crucified Jesus.
Sobering thoughts indeed.

When I say that those who have sold their souls to the devil will be exonerated because they were told by their priests and ministers that God was a sex-phobic moral dictator, you may ask then what becomes of those priests and ministers.
Although the ultimate responsibility for these things lies with priests and ministers it is not really their fault either.
They have an understandable belief in natural justice which they project onto God. They also have a belief in tradition and these things have been handed down from generation to generation from ancient times.
But these things do not correspond to the reality.
God does not punish us.
He does not punish sinners and He does not punish priests and ministers - even if they are corrupt and selfish.
He gives everyone another chance.
And this includes the Pharisees and Sadducees of our world.

It has been said that anything a person is doing to others they are doing to themselves.
So Satanists in our popular culture hate themselves and condemn themselves to hell.
They destroy themselves with their own evil.

Step 1: Love Your Enemies.
When you stop battling against evil and begin to return love for hate things improve.
Step 2: No Rock Music.
When you realize that all rock music is Satanism and throw your C.D.s and D.V.D.s in the bin and listen only to sacred classical music things change.
Step 3: Love God and Love Your Neighbor.
When you follow Jesus' teaching to love God and love your neighbor you are Home.

All life is interconnected.
The earth gave birth to life.
And life gave birth to consciousness.
Love is the source and the purpose of life.
We come from love and we return to love.
For God is Love.

The basis of the popular rebellion against religion is that God is anti-sex.
This, of course, is demonstrably ridiculous.
God is the author of sex.
He has made us sexual beings.
So why would God be anti-sex?
The basis of religious objections to sex dates from ancient ascetic practices.
These are the source of St. Paul's hysterical writings on sex which the Christian Churches adopted.
You will not find these ideas in Jesus' teachings.
Jesus taught that God is Love.
And sex is closer to love than self-denial.
Those who practise self-denial seek to bargain with God.
They try to trade earthly pleasure for heavenly pleasure.
But you cannot bargain with God.
And why would God grant pleasure in Heaven if He was opposed to pleasure on earth?
These things are not logical.
And they insult God.
God is not opposed to sex.
Sex is an integral part of God's good creation.
And as such we should celebrate our sexuality as part of our redeeming love.
