Satan doesn't exist -- something worse does

 There are 2 Christian beliefs that greatly facilitate the destruction of the American Republic. In this, I'll address the first. I'll explore the great question about Satan's existence (this is a much more interesting question than the question of God's existence.) Belief in God is rational, belief in Satan is a Biblical idea that needs scrutiny. I question and ask where are the Christian thinkers since Chesterton? I'll conclude by answering that Satan does not exist. I'll debunk a few conspiracies along the way and get into what is worse than Satan. I hope you will read & digest this one...I can't think or anything else like this...this is a topic that I hasn't been given much thought. Hopefully, it will generate thought in society. One thing that I'll mention here - because I don't mention it in the article is that I do believe that people practice Satanism, that there are people that sincerely believe that Satan does exist. That people act upon this belief and their practices are despicable. People believe a lot of weird things...their belief doesn't make it true. I once worked with a guy that took a temporary "side job" for a few days. That "job" took him into Bohemian Grove in Northern California. Satanism, Moloch beliefs are practiced and acted upon and this is disturbing! I'm inclined to believe that there might be some validity to some esoteric entities (weird stuff that even rational people would have difficulty explaining.) There are many things that I don't know of...so this article, in context is dealing with the Biblical account of Satan and its effect upon society (not of the unknown). I'll remind those of you that are Christians, the God of the Bible kills at least 32 million himself in the Bible (see Well's article)...but somehow this doesn't seem to disturb you? You're so occupied with Satan that there is much that you don't see. The entity that is worse than Satan (you'll need to read) that I do name in this article is responsible for 62+ million deaths at the time this was written. People don't think much anymore...nor do they read! Be different -read- think - act!

Before You Bury the Bastard: Preacher Don't Omit This From the Eulogy

This one is personal, about my father, the man as I knew him and family betrayal. This is about preachers behind a casket or urn that discuss someone other than the man or woman in front of them and what they were really like. This is about the funeral as a political battleground, about bullying & attempts to deprive people from paying respects and progressing through the stages of grieving.

Heaven can't exist -- Here's Why

This one can change the world if this truth gets out! Why? Because there isn't a Biblical expositor that can refute it! What has happened to reading skills & comprehension? People that want or plan on going to Heaven should read about the place they plan on going. I've never heard anyone make the points that are communicated in this conversation with St. Peter. Will Heaven be overcrowded? Will anyone go to Heaven at all? This is a thinking exercise for the soul. At the end, I'll list 10+ issues/questions that believers won't be able to sufficiently answer.

Christianity's Ineffectual Impact Upon Abortion

Don't you think that it is bizarre that "Christian churches" fight for abortion? That 62% of women having abortion are religious disciples? How did it get this way? What Baptist group led the way? In this, I discuss moral anchors and their absence and the absence of "Jesus" in faith claims of liberals. What the Roman Empire had before Christianity (hint...it was better, more equipped, to challenge today's madness). I ponder & answer why liberal churches don't die when they absolutely should. I clearly state that abortion is morally wrong....and do so also by scripture to deprive "untethered" souls any justification they may twist to fit their narratives. It greatly upsets me that conservatives haven't noticed and can't win these battles against liberals. They can't because there are problems due to their being religious conservatives. A secular conservative can say so many things a religious person can't! In this I state what my personal position on abortion is, and what I feel governmental policy should be and actions that should be implemented.

The Scientist That Initiated the Global Warming Issue Later Destroys Consensus

   It was Edward Teller, father of the hydrogen bomb, that strikes the alarm in a 1959 speech to the American Petroleum Institute and the Columbia Graduate School of Business of what became the Global Warming hysteria. Teller, 30 years later, signs the 1988 Oregon Petition (you ought to read it) that absolutely destroys the "consensus" lie that is pushed down the throats of society. Did you know that over 31,000 scientists have signed the petition? Over 9,000 of these scientists have a PhD degree in a relative field. WHY ISN'T THIS KNOWN? It reads..."There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate. Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.  BOTTOM LINE - You can't consider it a consensus with 31,000 dissenters!!!!

Progressives Fiddle While Paradise Burned

   Weather control IS a progressive idea that has been utilized for many decades. A few lines discuss that history and then I ask a very pointed question, "Why isn't weather control used for human good?" On Nov 8, 2018 wildfires destroy Paradise, California. If only those "sanctimonious Progressives" that are always "out front" with ideas that advance society and actually help people were asking the same questions decades ago....events such as these wildfire destruction wouldn't ravage communities. Of course, I'm being sarcastic because the reality is that Progressives don't really give a damn about people...they just want to pander to the naive. If Progressives were true to their namesake, events such as these could largely be controlled by weather control technology and human suffering lessened. This is a rant about pandering secular "do gooders"....that they aren't good for much! They are lying despicable salesmen!!!

Biblical God Flunks Geography

   An omniscient God is supposed to know everything, however, this discovery of a major geographical error destroys the validity of the Christian claim that their God is omniscient and that their Bible is inerrant. It is a Biblical farce! God cannot be omniscient if he has deficient knowledge of geography! The writer is a Deist and has a much higher view of God than Christians do. This is not a boast, but a sincere expression that God, to be God, must NOT BE A FLAWED ENTITY. I'm asking Christians to forgive the provocative title & to suspend judgment for the 10-15 minutes this will take to read. A Deist has the highest respect for God, this is not an attack upon God, this is a defense of God and his attributes! Kierkegaard's Infinite Qualitative Distinction is discussed. This is the most egregious error of the Bible & cannot be reconciled. Christianity will withstand this discovery, but this will reveal that they follow a book written by a mortal.

Confessions of an Ex-Minister: Part I

 I tell my deeply personal spiritual story & quickly get into my childhood, the torments & my love and appreciation for the church. I also tell of the accident that nearly took my father's life...it bore witness to me that God is real and that sometimes God intervenes if we are humble enough to pray.

Opaque Morality: The Great Secular Ethical Identity Problem

 Secular souls have an inherent disadvantage in society when it comes to trust and expressing values. Secular morality is opaque! What should we expect people to just trust us when we can't specify our ethics and values? This is THE # ONE issue that secularism faces!

Freedom of Unbelief: Worthy of Protection - Where's the Human Rights Legislation?

 While we have freedom to believe, we don't have the inverse proposition...freedom of unbelief! Written after the Charlie Hebdo murders. If we don't have freedom of unbelief then we truly don't have religious freedom. I bring what I believe is a unique model (a first) by showing that freedom of unbelief needs to be paired with religious freedom and that it should conduct itself similar to what happens in a nucleus of an atom and follow the laws of electricity.

The Myth of Misogyny and the Meaning of Marriage

 One of my favorites! Not taking the bait on hatred and getting into the spirituality that makes marriages work. Utilizing the Biblical story of Adam & Eve as a secular writer and how this is a GOOD thing to help people see how easily they get tripped up! I use this as a positive reinforcement and model of a secular being to utilize scriptures for a good cause.

What Aggressive Secularism Does to Society

 

I have completely re-written my older article Will Secularism Destroy Society? Hopefully, I have gotten wiser and found a better way to communicate the subject matter. I consider this the most important subject of secularism. I make some confessions in this, the only article that I have ever re-written. Durant & Santayana anchor the post as before, but in this my goal is to apply their message within the secular crowd. I share a ministers perspective about secularism that might give one something to ponder. The sustainable adjustment section is where I discuss a new strategy about aggressive secularism. I hope you will slowly read this one.

The Battle for Religious Freedom: The Next Step

 I define the four things you must have in order to have religious freedom. The next step we should take is to assimilate protection from retaliation into our thinking when we define freedom of religion. I see blasphemy as retaliation and discuss this and other aspects of evangelism that lead to retaliation.

Dualism or Duel? The Question That Transforms Religious Conflict

Do we want to fight (Duel) or have a checks & balance religious/secular (Dual) approach? I compare two approaches toward religion. When applied to religious/secular culture these similar sounding words separated by a vowel make all the difference in the world!  This dualism (in essence) is Ex-Minister's brand/method viewed through history's conflict (hindsight) and a path for our future.

Ex-Minister's Perspective on Liberation Theology and Poverty

 I think my title/subtitle covers this one. Poverty is a great teacher, the subject matter pervades themes of religion/skepticism and should inform the positions that we take...unless your a cold hearted SOB. I discuss the events of El Salvador and Hugo Chavez of Venezuela and Liberation Theology.

The Secular Case Against Gay Marriage

 Marriage is a civil/secular institution that needs lifting from those that mire it in religion. Those that speed read or sound bite will likely miss the "heart" contained within the Off Topic Questions that Christians need to ask section. The church's Biblical stance on homosexuality is a problem that they don't know how to fix. If they don't atheism will!

Written as a good natured non-threatening challenge to current Christian theological thought. Justice and meaning are closely related.
