The Death of Western Christianity

Christians Christians Christians. This post is a very good example of why Christianity is on the decline in America. It is not on the decline due to moral decay, nor due to people straying from the “straight and narrow.” It is on the decline because people have opened their eyes to the Colonial/Crusade/Pharisee-based indoctrination that Westernized Christianity is so diseased with. Christians will point to the bad seeds of a certain group of people, in an attempt to prove that Christians bear more fruit, and the only fruit. Yet it is clear that this is not the case. The reason that Christianity, or Catholicism, is so far spread throughout the world is due to posts like these. The propoganda that people of other cultures or religions are barbaric and need “saving.” It is what soothed the consciences of the slave traders, the crusaders, and the rest of the power hungry, bible thumping, land stealing Christians of the past and present. It’s a sad case of shining false light, for many Christians are sincere in their efforts, and are only doing what they see as best. Nevertheless, there has arrived a time that these Christians fear. The church, as we have seen it, is dying a slow, but needed death.

The current institution, that we falsely label the church, is having its tables turned over, because the true children of light are tired of the many robbers parading as pastors and popes. They are tired of graceless evangelists, who use fear-based conversion tactics, who preach a message of freedom, when they themselves are bound. If you want to truly be as Christ, then feed the poor, forgive someone, pray for your enemies, and uplift someone.

I will end on this note: When you go into a neighborhood, another country, or next door preaching of Jesus with your words, and promises of heaven, and that person rather not hear it, it is not Christ they are denying, it is Christians. As Gandhi stated, “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”


“This place is …

“This place is a dream. Only a sleeper considers it real. Then death comes like dawn, and you wake up laughing at what you thought was your grief.”

Rumi


Reality is Just a Dream, Angel.

Truth be told, no one knows it. That last statement may be false. The cost of living a lie is free-dumb. Peace only found in the perspective of a mind, ask the blind. It used to be filth everywhere I looked, until I realized dirt covered my eyes. Taught early that mankind was unworthy, slave mentality. Now it is Love who I am serving. Life is but a dance lesson, then the beat stops, and you realize the Creator is the one who knocked in your chest, death opened the door. Reality is just a dream, angel. But truth be told, no one knows it, or maybe we’re all staring at it from different angles.


Overcoming Sin

To overcome sin, you have to remove it as an option altogether. It should not cause “what if” thoughts, because it shouldn’t be in your thoughts other than to rebuke it when it knocks on your door in the form of temptation. Also, God has to be THE priority. The one and only priority of ones life, actions, thoughts, desires, etc. When God is the center of ones vision, the distractions in your peripheral won’t be granted a single glance.


Solomon, Wise?

While reading 1 Kings, I came across the part where Solomon asked God for wisdom, God being pleased with this request also gave Solomon “riches and honor.” Now, with God being all-knowing and what not, why exactly would he give Solomon riches, knowing that these riches would be apart of the reason Solomon would temporarily stray away from the Lord? My best guess is that the riches were apart of Solomon’s acquirement of wisdom, the quote “experience is the best teacher” comes to mind. Some things are best learned through first hand experience, and Solomon learned through his stages of being highly materialistic, chasing women, etc, that none of those things were of any value. He came to see that the only thing that is of any worth is your relationship with God, that is the most valuable possession you could ever have. So, God allowed Solomon to live and learn (grace is beautiful huh?), much like he allows all of his children. So, if you ask God for wisdom, expect to live through the lessons!
