Jimi vs Jesus.

“Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” St Paul. (Gal5vs1)

Once upon a time… before I became a Christian , I was a Teenage Nihilistic Atheist who worshipped Jim Morison.
Its dangerous for young men to idolise such lost souls… By the age of 28 Jim was Dead!
I was Lawless, yet not free. I was a slave to ignorance.
Thankfully I was saved by Jesus Christ!
Now that I have the bible as my guide I am wiser, and in a better position to understand all the delusions, all the anger, all the carnality such Dark idols are expressing.
I have been saved from being carried away into oblivion by the Riptide that such pop cultural perspectives exert upon the Lost masses.
Though I now acknowledge Moral reality… I have been set free.

Some people believe Christianity is morally oppressive and hypocritical, and that to become a Christian requires a person to become a fraud…’to pretend to be something they are not …and then they begin to site all the heinous examples of so-called pious Christians whom are found guilty of committing vile crimes…as if these sorts of examples are definitive of Christianity.
I must sympathize with them, not that their definition of Christianity is actually true. Its not. Nonetheless their acusations still hold true for a great majority of hypocrites and bigots whom claim to be Christians.
Still if that was the whole truth, and Christianity really was as these critics describe it…I would never have become a Christian as I despise phony’s, hypocrites, and Bigotry.

^Fake!^ Yet whats a Real Christian supposed to look like?

In reality Christianity is about being honest, both to yourself, and to others…for truths sake, yet to appreciate this one must firstly be of pure heart…ie be able to be objective in your judgments about your self and the world around you.

To investigate the truth, and be able to apprehend Christianity is trustworthy is to overcome the great deception which is at the heart of the mass delusions of our age.
Under Gods grace I can live honestly as myself, not as a phony card board cut out of a fanatic. I can be Libertarian in political outlook. I can admit that I really like the metal band Tool. If ever asked if I think a calendar girl is ‘hot stuff’, I don’t have to pretend otherwise.
This is how I describe the true Christian pilgrimage.
Christianity is about living under grace in honesty and not faking a bogus self righteousness. I can do this because I’m saved by grace, not by my own righteousness or works.
I am secure in Christ whom hath made me free.
I now know who/what I am, and what is really going on in the world, and why.
I now swim against the flow… being guided by my newly awakened Conscience…as a self reliant individual.
Sadly this is not a popular thing to do… but it is the right and wise thing to do.

Tool’s Maynard James Keenan.

My knowledge of the gospel truth hath made me free from enslavement to delusion which those whom don’t know Christ are susceptible. From my Christian vantage point I can appreciate the genius of many Nihilistic artists of our day and understand how they came to perceive the world as they do, yet I do not blindly and trance like Idolize such Masters of carnal reality as Maynard James Keenan, or Jim Morrison as I once was prone to do. I can objectively consider them, I clap at their cunning and performance, yet choose rather to follow the values of Paul (the Apostle of the Gospel of grace), rather than those of these crooner peacock sons of fallen Adam.
Maynard may be a musical genius…yet he is utterly depraved. He revels in depravity, and he intentionally encourages others to join with him in rebellion to Christian values. He does it with such Diabolical art and cunning. Its impossible for me not to appreciate his artistic genius, but beware his hedonistic worldview.

Because of the godless philosophies of our age it is easy to see why so many are beguiled by Him, not having the light of the word of God to keep them from going astray. Fools choose to hide themselves from moral reality.
False gospels that base salvation upon self righteousness, keeping the Law, and Good works, always lead to pretentious hypocrisy. Christians whom have been deluded into thinking Christianity is about legalistic obedience fall into this evil habit to hide their own true selves and keep up the facade of piety. They often cry out in displays of moral indignation…seeking to impose their Moral legalism upon others via the law. This is the sort of religion Maynard and Jim rebelled against. I rebel against that too! I’m keeping it real under Gods grace.

Never Happy Again

What words can sooth such agony as suffered by the parents and families of ‘Two-year-old Lillie, Jackson and Willsher Weekes [who] were among the 13 children killed in the fire which broke out in the Villaggio Mall in Doha.’ ???
They express their Loss… “Never Happy again”

Though the pain I feel upon hearing of such tragic yet distant events cannot be compared with that of their kin, Tragic news like this kills me. I die a little every day.
We read that among the causes were, gross human errors, malfunctions, and callousness, yet ultimately people wonder why God Almighty allows such horrific things to happen to innocent children?
As a Christian I know why. The Bible has the answer, yet today I simply wish to pray to the Lord, that he reaches out to the Kiwi Parents of these beautiful children, and the others whom lost loved ones in this tragedy… that he does not allow their hearts to become hardened and hateful, that he takes pity upon them, and has mercy upon them, and draws them near unto himself, that they might find peace and hope in his presence.


Here we have some Anti-American Propaganda.
There is no way we can know if this poor child was in fact killed by an American drone strike. There is every chance that this is a despicable lie designed to stir up hated of America and support for terrorism… none the less *an Innocent Child lies Dead.*

Looking at such a shocking reality… and the story that has been attached to it is a test of ones convictions.
Let me state that I don’t buy into the argument that they are selling.
Let me state that it is possible to hate War, yet still support America’s combat forces in Afghanistan and Iraq.
…yet still it is easy to apprehend the futility of it all!
The magnitude of Mankinds Foolishness and evil.
Just how Far We have lost our way!

“And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil” (John 3vs19)

The Bible teaches us that the very first Man born of Fallen Adam… in jealousy… murdered his own brother!
(Gen 4vs8)
And that as Mankind Multiplied upon the Earth so too did violence.
(Gen 6vs1-5)

This Propaganda Photo teaches us one very important thing.
That the Bibles claim that Mankind is a corrupt and fallen race of beings is absolutely true! It is validated every single day!
Evolution is a Joke!
Mankind is *not evolving*… not becoming less like beasts at all.

Looking at this photo I ask this question:
In such a world as ours… filled with violence and Evil, who has the right to be happy?
Some people will say… “Nothing really matters”…. “Everybody dies”…. “There is no point in worrying about the way things are”… “You cant do anything about it”… “So just switch off and enjoy the few short moments you have”…

They say this because thats the best answer they can muster.
They say this because if they admit to themselves they really care… they will go insane…
For Me that’s no answer!
For Me that’s utterly tragic!
I simply don’t know how people can go through life with that kind of view of reality!
It’s Amoral.
It’s nihilistic.
It’s shallow and Hopeless!
It is the answer of a Lost soul!

I am so grateful to have found the Hope that is in Christ!
I don’t have write off all the evils I see about me as nothing.
I don’t have to look at that picture and not believe things ought to be different.
And I can do something about it!
The Christian answer to that question is that in a world such as this we ought to appreciate Everyday that our nearest and dearest remain safe and well… and Praise the Lord with thanks giving for his blessed Providence. And in those terrible days that must surely come upon us mortals, that our Loved ones are taken from us, let us be thankful unto the Lord for the relationship we enjoyed upon this rock in space…and the time we had to share and enjoy… and that all is not in vain! We Christians have that blessed hope of being reunited with our loved ones in heaven!
This hope rests in the power of Christs Resurection.
Let us be busy preaching The Gospel which alone can bring salvation to mankind, one individual at a time.
Let us Celebrate with those whom celebrate, and shed tears with those who cry… and most of all let us live by faith and Hope that is in Christ our Lord.
We know the sad truth that only a minority of lost souls will receive the free gift of Salvation, thus let us pray that Christ returns swiftly.
We know that until that day dawns, that we shall need to take up arms and defend ourselves from evil powers and principalities, and spiritual wickedness in high places.. and that tragically innocent little children will suffer the most.
Let us spread the Light of Libertarianism, of Tollerance, of Equality before the Law, of Voluntary Charity, and Association.
I have hopes that my Baby boy, and grandchildren live long and happly lives, yet would I wish the Lord to tarry… while millions of innocent children suffer? No!
I pray for the swift return of Christ!
Return O Lord! Prince of Peace and righteousness!
We Human beings cannot Rule ourselves.
We have utterly ruined the world.
Our Children lay dead from our violence and hatred.
Mankind has rejected your Light!
Return Quickly O Lord.
And give us the courage to boldly preach your Gospel of Grace with what time remains.
