If you start with a wrong assumption, then…


It starts with a wrong assumption.

If your starting point is wrong it’s like taking a wrong turn and just keeping going – then the further you travel in life, the further you become distanced from the truth.

The assumption that this new-age “gospel” makes is that there is a war between Jesus and the devil, and gradually Jesus wins this war and the devil loses, as the world is gradually transformed into the Kingdom of God. They then interpret various data, like the ones he quotes, to prove the Kingdom is winning and the devil is losing. But Jesus said that His Kingdom is not of this world, it is a spiritual Kingdom which thrives and grows in the midst of an ever-darkening world.

    REALITY, as a healthy spiritual state, is where you face reality as it is in reality and you don’t try and make the Bible say what you want it to say. You accept what the Bible says. You don’t create your own reality based on how you want things to be, or on how you wish or dream they were.

    But UNREALITY, in contrast, is the first step to insanity. It’s when the realities of life seem too harsh or unpleasant, so a person denies the existence of the facts and creates their own fantasy reality – they create an imaginary “better world”, a fantasy cocoon, which they think will “protect” them from the stark realities of life, and of the future, as described in the Bible.

    Jesus said few (relatively) would be saved, and that the great tribulation will be a holocaust of the wrath of God poured out on an unbelieving world, and unless God shortens it that no one would survive.

    Now, icky poo! I don’t like that! Tell me something else Jesus! Oh, you won’t? Then I will create an imaginary Jesus and he will tell me what I want to hear.

    And the antichrist will come along and save these “Christians” from all those hard, unloving and unyielding Bible fundamentalists.
