Pseudo-Science Psychos


     When I was on my federally funded sabbatical in a gated community, I had run across a scientific article called A Geocentricity Primer written by Gerard Bouw Ph.D. in Astronomy who takes the "old-fashioned" view that: "the ancient doctrine that the earth is fixed motionless at the center of the universe."  I have had the pleasure to communicating with Dr. Bouw by email, and he recently told me that: "The first thrust is that 'every experiment ever devised to detect the motion of the earth through space has yielded a speed of zero.' "  In other words, there is no scientific proof that the earth moves, let alone rotates at a speed of over 1000MPG and orbits the sun.  You have to remember that the idea of heliocentricity (earth rotating and orbiting the sun) was an idea of scientists such as Kepler, Copernicus, and Galileo.  It was and still is my position that I don't really care which conclusion is true, I just want truthful information in order to draw accurate conclusions.  However, after attempting to study what is passed off as science, I find that scientists can be just as dishonest as your common run of the mill government politician or religious leader.
     After reading Dr. Bouw's 160-page book, I realize that he made some extremely interesting points, especially the fact that there has been no scientific proof that can detect the earth's motion.  This reminded me of when I first went to college and I had to sit through a geology class learning about scientific things that made no sense and couldn't possibly be true.  At that time, evolution was being taught as if it were fact, but as a lot of people know, it is nothing more than utter nonsense; the same thing with global warming.  Bad science has been used as a political tool to promote a satanic agenda, and at the center of that is the lie.  I never believed a word of the professor and nothing from evolution.  I was only 19 or 20 at the time, but I remember walking off campus--never to return again--because between having to learn evolution and communism were just not something that was going to be important in my life; mostly because none of it was true.  Now, in my later years, I read an article by a Ph.D. in Astronomy who is saying that the earth is at the center of the universe and that it is stationary.
     In his book, Dr. Bouw explains in great detail, in scientific terms, exactly why he thinks that the earth is stationary.  I won't repeat any of them here because I am not competent in this area and I haven't read them for awhile.  But after reading his book, I came away with the fact that the "powers" intentionally distorted science in order to promote their agenda.  That satanic agenda would be to control the minds of the people by putting out a bunch of crap, and then passing it off as science.  Supposedly, the "powers" want the scientists to have the last say about with something is or it isn't.  The problem is that scientists are usually paid by the state, and they will come up with conclusions that will support the state's agenda.  In other words, scientists can be just as crooked as politicians and religious leaders.
     The other reason may be to discredit the Bible in some way.  The Bible is clearly geocentric and if the heliocentric theory was true, then one could quickly dispose of the scriptures as being entirely bogus.  So if it was the intention to minimize the Bible they may have been successful, but liars are always a failure.  Liars are always the losers.  Because no matter what they do, no matter what they say, and no matter how much wealth they have, they lose because what they have was received in evil.  Evil is a failure.  However, it is my conclusion that the writings in the Bible that refer to the geocentric position seem to be more truthful.
     When I study an issue, I look at it closely and I listen to all of the arguments.  I always listen to the opposing points of view then I make up my own mind.  The fact that there are no experiments that can detect the movement of the earth shows me that Dr. Bouw is correct.  But in addition to that, I can see the sun "rise" in the east and "set" in the west.  This has happened since the day of creation.  And I don't think it's going to change anytime soon.  And since the earth is a sphere, it seems to me that it is a no-brainer that the sun is orbiting the earth or in some kind of circular motion.  I don't need a Ph.D. to know that I can see it for myself. If Dr. Bouw's data is correct, and I can see it with my own eyes, then I think I can be secure in the knowledge that the data is consistent with my own observations.
     Now, the idea of the earth spinning on its axis at 1000mph and then revolving around the sun just doesn't seem plausible.  The surface winds alone on a spinning earth is just ridiculous.  The turbulence from the mountains would be too much for anyone to survive.  I know, I've heard the argument that if one is in a car, he doesn't feel the movement because he is enclosed in the car.  But the earth isn't enclosed, and there is no scientific proof of any motion of the earth.
    All science that is not true or theories that have no basis in facts is junk science and those who promote such nonsense are pseudo-science psychos.  They have no desire for the truth, but their evil plans are evident by the misinformation they produce.  For instance: heliocentricism establishes a grand lie into the minds of men.  Then, if that wasn't enough, the theory of evolution comes in and makes those who believe it think they are animals.  If one reads the US Codes carefully, they will see that the codes apply to animals and artificial entities, but never on men, women, and children.  So we can see a pattern of deceit that is clearly satanic.  Of course, global warming is proffered as modern science, but it is just another scam to steal money from the people who do things to earn it.
     But I think the main issue with the heliocentric theory is that it distorts a man's mind.  It makes him think that one thing is true when in fact it is the opposite.
     Finally, I think that A Geocentricity Primer is worth your time to understand that the "powers" continually lie to us.  I personally don't care whether the sun circles the earth or not, but I completely resent so-called scientists who intentionally distort the truth to serve their own agenda.  That kind of person is a pseudo-science psycho.

Worthless by Aaron Clarey: A Book Review

     One of the most intense discussions that I've had with young people is the problem of education, its value, and its relevance to being a productive man or woman.  One of the happiest days of my life was when I left college and went out at started my life outside of the school system.  I had no degree but I was well-read and I just couldn't afford to sit in a classroom while the world was passing me by; I wanted to work and make money.  I wanted to find a wife and have a family.  Worthless: The Young Person's Indispensable Guide to Choosing the Right Major  
     "Worthless" is one of those books that I wish was written when I went to college in the late sixties.  If this book was available then, I would certainly have made some better choices in my major.  Aaron Clarey pulls no punches about how useless many of the liberal arts majors are and he makes some great suggestions as to how to make intelligent choices.
     What stood out to me was his explanation of the basic economics of paying for a college education and the potential return the student may get back in terms of getting a good job, paying back the loans, and improving one's marketability.  If the student doesn't choose the right major, then he has the potential of  having a worthless degree that won't get him a good job, but also, will struggle to pay back any of the student loans.
     What is happening now is that a lot of students are graduating with degrees that do nothing to help them get a meaningful job.  But the reality is that many of these students are still living with their parents because they can't find anything in their field.  So there are many college graduates working for minimum wage because there are just not enough good jobs.  Here is a list of some worthless degrees:
  • International Studies
  • Sociology
  • Non-Profit Administration
  • African Studies
  • English
  • Psychology
  • Elementary Education
  • Art and Architectural History
  • Masters in Puppetry
     In my case I studied Political Science, which is one of the most worthless degrees one could ever get.  It is almost as useless as "Masters in Puppetry."  In any economy there has to be a demand for a product or service.  If there is no demand for people with degrees in these subject matters, then there are going to be no jobs.  Again, supply and demand is the measure young people should look at before choosing their majors.  Clarey covers the discrepancy between what level of income students expect, and the errors they made in choosing a major.

     The majors that actually will produce good incomes and jobs for the students are:
  • Science
  • Technology
  • Engineering
  • Math
    Now I'm not great at math, but if I had another chance at education, this is where I would put my focus.  I would probably go for computer science, since I like to work with them.  But in the late sixties, we didn't have much of that.  However, even back then, they had most of the worthless degrees Clarey speaks of that were hardly ever relevant to the career choice.  Clarey goes even further to explain that majors such as Environmental Engineering are worthless because the science is based upon a political agenda.  Very few companies need environmental engineers yet the colleges offer it and it is a waste of money.
    Since I've been critical of the banking system, I was highly amused at his criticism of bankers who were "too lazy to go into engineering, let alone accounting, but still wanted to make a ton of money."  He then describes them as corrupted with no morals.  And that's how most people perceive bankers, lawyers, politicians, and other miscreants.
     What I found surprising in this book is that he describes the major of Business Administration as  essentially worthless.  Clarey gives the example of a possible graduate making an application: "I  have no experience and no skills, but I read about a lot of businessmen at school."  Businessmen are not all college grads.  They learn business by doing it, starting from the bottom and working their way up.  All business owners want good people to work for them, and as a former business owner, I wanted people with some experience.  If I hired a college grad I would still have to train him in the position.  The degree doesn't help if I want results right away.  Clarey makes the same point.
     He also covers the non value of masters degrees in Business that adds nothing to the marketability of the graduate.  Let's say the MBA graduates with $100,000.00 debt, it is going to take him a long time to pay that off.  So a college student should count the cost and make sure he is receiving value for the money spend on education.
     Another problem he points out that the MBA is usually just another "regurgitation of classes."  These usually arise in "leadership" classes which most students already know, but they paid a lot of money to get a useless education.
    In one of his chapters called: "Why Didn't Anybody Tell Me?" he cover how some students, after going through all of this trouble find it extremely difficult to find meaningful work.  He points out the fact that the colleges and universities (many controlled by government) do little to inform their students of the value vs. the expense of a degree.  If a student pays $35,000 for a degree only to get a minimum wage job, then he has not received value for his money.  And of course, being a young person, he relies on the counselors who work at the college to tell him what he should do.  The problem is that there is a great conflict of interest in that the colleges have to fill up those classes to justify hiring a professor in the useless subject matter.  So the colleges take advantage of young people to fill up their stupid classes which produce no jobs save for the faculty.  The corruption in the education system far exceeds anything else; Clarey calles it "Big Education."
     One of my pet peeves was the idea of taking classes I had in high school again because I needed a "well rounded" education.  To me that was complete nonsense as I needed skills to get a job.  I was so anxious to go out and work that I couldn't bear another day in class.  Going to class seemed to give me a false sense of security from what I really should have been doing.  In short, in my opinion, the skills pay the bills.
    Here, I'll give a free economics lesson: buy low; sell high; and the rest is just technique.  That's how it really works.  Your opportunity for success is to make sure your major is favorable to you within the supply and demand area.  
     Another myth that  Clarey uses is: "A Bachelor's Degree is Just to Get in the Door" and this was problematic for me because I felt that I was going to be limited in making money and that I would somehow be some kind of low-life for not having a degree.  This may have been true in the past but it is no more.  The reality for me was that I received all kinds of skills in various industries, and each one helped me to get the next better job.  I did work for myself mostly, but the skills I received from hourly positions helped me to learn how to make money.  I never would have learn any of it in college.
    Clarey then finishes off his book stating that it is incumbent on the student to choose the proper major so that he is not a drag on society.  Nothing is worse to Clarey than having a student get a degree in a worthless subject, and then get a teaching job so he can teach the same worthless subject to other hapless students so that they too can get a worthless degree.
     I know that if I had read this book before going to college or a university, I would seriously consider my options.  I would choose a major that would make me more marketable to more companies.  When it comes to a career, money is very important in order to provide for a family.   
After reading this book, I would have chosen none of the classes that I took in college.
      This book was a great read and I highly recommend it.

Garbage In; Garbage Out

     Most of us have heard the saying: garbage in; garbage out and it does make a lot of sense.  And it would only follow, that if a man would put good things in then good things would come out.  However, when it comes to taking in things in media, most of us do not realize just how dangerous unseemly material and lies can be on a person's mind.  Some of the things that usually normal people look at or read is almost unbelievable.  The fact is that this kind of material will become manifest in the person at some point.  Depending upon the degree of the intake of garbage, will decide how bad the manifestation will be.
     Recently, we have seen how a young man allegedly went berserk, and shot up a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado.  The problem as I see it is not just the horrid video games or movies, but it is the incessant intellectual ingestion of porn, lies, violence, child abuse, and a whole litany of evil things that work to distort the mind.  I want to give the reader some ideas as to how to avoid evil things and thereby improving one's life almost immediately.
     When I got thrown in jail for questioning the lawfulness of income taxes, I had the experience of being totally cut of from most media.  While there was a television going on almost 24/7, I didn't pay much attention to it because I had completely lost interest.  But what I learned was completely amazing to me.  I thought because I couldn't watch TV, read newspapers, watch the news, surf the net, that somehow I would have some kind of withdrawal.  I did not.  Actually, I rather enjoyed the peace and quiet in my mind and I realized that I had a mind and that I could use it.  I used it mostly to pass the time, but I was able to teach myself to stay focused on an issue so that I could see it through to its logical conclusion.
     While I was in this condition, I realized that keeping God's commandments was my primary duty as a man.  Solomon said: "Let's us hear the end of all: fear God and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man." (Ecclesiastes 12:13 GB)  These commandments are not only spelled out many places in the Bible, but they are also present in nature.  Nature is the creation of God and all of us are subject to nature, whether we like it or not.  But the commandments are the tools with which God gave us to use in order to stay within the natural course of life the way he intended for us to live.
So if that's the case, then the commandments should be the anchor for my mind and my soul.  There's nothing else that is going to work as well as these.
     Now, what I have tried to do is to cut off as much evil as I can.  This can be sometimes difficult, but what I have done is to shut down my mind and cut off the intake as much as I possibly can.  I don't get involved with anything that is going to put me in the position of evil.  I try not to even think about it as it always disturbs my countenance.  For instance, I had a conversation with a "government" official last week and I knew he was lying.  It took me about 24 hours to get rid of the evil that I felt coming from this man.  The reason for it is because I had allowed his nonsense into my mind.  This is why I pay no more attention to political things because there's really no reason for it as nothing comes out well in politics.  I'm not sure how to completely get rid of these kinds of incidents, but I'm thinking that it's just better to avoid these people.
     When a man talks to a liar, even listening to his lies begins to twist the mind.  Especially, when a lot of his lies are laced with the truth.  I cannot function this way and I refuse to listen to the nonsense.   Now, I don't assume that every man that I speak is lying to me.  But I am cautious about listening to people.  When I hear the nonsense start, I try to leave as quickly as possible.  Or, I may just shut them out of my mind.  And every once and awhile I put my hands over my ears.  But the purpose of this is to shut out the evil before it affects the mind.
     We have a lot of media that spews out filth: internet, television, movies, video games, and many other books and magazines that are extremely destructive.  What I've been able to do is to shut off most of this because I don't want to be exposed to that trash.  Since I spend a lot of time on the internet, I try to keep my intake of nonsense down to a minimum.  I read a few websites because they are at least intelligent, and the rest I don't even bother.  I have consciously have limited my intake of nonsense.  The result has been my own peaceful countenance which will produce more good.  When I don't have evil distractions, I do enjoy life a lot more.
     So I try to measure all of my actions with the commandments and the natural law, as they are my tools to do things correctly, and they will also point to the things that I've done wrong.  However, as I move through the later part of my life, I am much more peaceful because I know that obeying the natural law that God created is an effective--trouble-free--way of living my life.  Good things in, good things out.  This works extremely well and it is more powerful than any religion.  Religious rituals don't teach anything good, but keeping the commandments makes all the difference.
     I have had a few occasions that I could have done a few things very wrong, but using God's laws I was able to clearly see that what I was thinking about would be bad.  So it is important to understand, that contrary to the useless preaching of most "Christian" pastors, the commandments are extremely important and they should be at the center of our thoughts 24/7.  There is no bondage in the commandments, there is only the true liberty that they produce because living within them makes our lives much more pleasant.
     What's nice about this approach is that there is no religious preaching or rituals that get in the way.
The commandments are where the rubber meets the road.  All I know is that when I keep the commandments, everything works just fine.  There isn't any expectation of God's payback and life is generally more peaceful.  I don't worry about things as much as I know that somehow things will work out.

It Starts with Fornication

     Have you ever wondered why there's so much child abuse, homosexual activity, and sexual promiscuity?  Given the recent disclosure of child abuse in Penn State's football program, and the rabid promotion of the homosexual agenda within our school systems as normal behavior, it is obvious to me that we have some severe sexual problems that are purposefully brought upon our young people in order to destroy our way of life.  Government, religion, media,  and education are the main culprits in promoting this sickening way of life.  It is destroying our children and if it is not arrested, I don't even want to think about what is going to happen in the future.
     I'm not going to write about all of the evil things that are going on because other people are doing a good job in bringing the problem to the attention of the public.  What I'm going to try to do, is to give people a way of defeating the evil of sexual sin in such a simple way, that if learned, I think will go a long way in helping  people to withdraw from unlawful sex and wait for marriage.  We know the problem, but we need a solution.
     The solution to fornication is as simple as the articles that I have written about solving the problem of anger.  Anger creates jealousy, strife, evil, hatred, and other bad things that can ruin a man's life.  Fornication does the same thing.  Fornication is just like anger in that the temptation starts and if it is not arrested, it will take a man down to the dark path of spiritual death.  A man or woman loses his virtue with fornication.  This is the same spiritual problem as anger.  Having sex with someone that one isn't married to is a very bad thing to do.  However, those in "authority" seem to almost promote that which is evil.  The reason they do that is because they want to make a slave out of everyone they encounter.  If the government, religion, media, and society promote sexual promiscuity they are doing it because they need more slaves.  A fornicator is a slave.  A fornicator is as the people who were taken from their homes on slave ships from Africa.  Fornication is the chain that insures a man or a woman's bondage.
     So how do we defeat it?  It has been my experience that it is relatively easy to stay away from things that can get a person into trouble.  Most people don't know how to control the urge because many of them like the idea of having sex on a regular basis; sometimes with people they don't even know.  Just the physical danger should be a good warning, but the spiritual and mental danger can be much worse.  The first thing to do in order to defeat the urge is to decide that from this point onward,
you will not entertain fornication ever again.  Once you've made up your mind not to fornicate, then there needs to be something else that may help.
     I'm kind of like a one trick pony in defeating sins.  The reason for this is that no matter what the sin may be, reciting the commandments seems to get rid of the evil.  Whether the evil is a demon, spirit, or whatever, all I know that repeating the commandments moves the evil away in seconds.  Once that is accomplished, there is no more problem.  I know it sounds simplistic, but it works for me and other people are writing to me saying that this works.  The evil cannot stand to hear the commandments.  This is where the rubber meets the road.  I've written about my experiences with this, and all I can tell everyone is that it works.
     What this does is to give people a quick and easy way to avoid this temptation.  It seems that the temptation to fornicate seems to feel like some kind of stupor.  It creates nothing but trouble and it does no good for anyone.  But the stupor can be difficult to break through because it feels so pervasive.  If this kind of thing happens to me, I simply repeat the commandments and the whole thing blows over almost instantly.
     If this urge could be arrested by everyone involved in fornication, there would be little to no child abuse or homosexuality.  Fornication breeds the worse in mankind and with a whole nation doing it, it becomes the same as a self-inflicted nuclear explosion.  Fornication is as drinking the Kool Aid.  And the people who will eventually suffer the most are the little children.
     Many men have lost their moral compass, and to some of them, it is no big deal to abuse a child.  However, it is the worst of the worst.  And it all starts with fornication.  If you really want to stop child abuse, get control over your sexual urges so that when a temptation comes along, you'll know how to defeat it.
    This works on every other evil.  I've never seen it fail.  I don't wish to document anymore evil more than I need to, but it is my goal in continuing this blog is to provide solutions to spiritual problems that none of the religions can address.  If these religions were so effective, then why do we have such problems?

I Love You Sweetie: You Bastard!

     One of the things I found remarkable is how women can go from zero to bitch in just under 5 seconds.  If I hadn't experienced it for myself, I wouldn't have believed it.  One minute the two of us are desperately in love; in the other, we are in mortal combat.  I did not plan to have a sparring partner when I got married.  I have heard the same story from other men, and essentially it is the same story; just the circumstances are different.  What is going on with our women?  This doesn't seem to happen as much with men as it does with women.
     I used to ask God: "What am I missing?"  If someone is mad at me my first reaction was to double-check myself just to make sure I didn't do anything to provoke her.  However, the problem is that there was no one who could help me.  The shrinks are useless and so I tried to use some common sense.  I could never figure it out.  Why was I getting unprovoked attacks?  And even now, I only have one thing that I think could explain this.  I'm going to post the whole part of the writing from the Shepherd of Hermas that deals with anger.  If women could recognize the problem before it gets out of control, I think relationships between men and women would greatly improve.  This will be from Mandate #5.
 
1[33]:1 "Be thou long-suffering and understanding," he saith, "and thou shalt have the mastery over all evil deeds, and shalt work all righteousness.
1[33]:2 For if thou art long-suffering, the Holy Spirit that abideth in thee shall be pure, not being darkened by another evil spirit, but dwelling in a large room shall rejoice and be glad with the vessel in which he dwelleth, and shall serve God with much cheerfulness, having prosperity in himself.
1[33]:3 But if any angry temper approach, forthwith the Holy Spirit, being delicate, is straitened, not having [the] place clear, and seeketh to retire from the place; for he is being choked by the evil spirit, and has no room to minister unto the Lord, as he desireth, being polluted by angry temper. For the Lord dwelleth in long-suffering, but the devil in angry temper.
1[33]:4 Thus that both the spirits then should be dwelling together is inconvenient and evil for that man in whom they dwell.
1[33]:5 For if you take a little wormwood, and pour it into a jar of honey, is not the whole of the honey spoiled, and all that honey ruined by a very small quantity of wormwood? For it destroyeth the sweetness of the honey, and it no longer hath the same attraction for the owner, because it is rendered bitter and hath lost its use. But if the wormwood be not put into the honey, the honey is found sweet and becomes useful to its owner.
1[33]:6 Thou seest [then] that long-suffering is very sweet, beyond the sweetness of honey, and is useful to the Lord, and He dwelleth in it. But angry, temper is bitter and useless. If then angry temper be mixed with long-suffering, long-suffering is polluted and the man's intercession is no longer useful to God."
1[33]:7 "I would fain know, Sir," say I, "the working of angry temper, that I may guard myself from it." "Yea, verily," saith he, "if thou guard not thyself from it--thou and thy family--thou hast lost all thy hope. But guard thyself from it; for I am with thee. Yea, and all men shall hold aloof from it, as many as have repented with their whole heart. For I will be with them and will preserve them; for they all were justified by the most holy angel.
2[34]:1 "Hear now," saith he, "the working of angry temper, how evil it is, and how it subverteth the servants of God by its own working, and how it leadeth them astray from righteousness. But it doth not lead astray them that are full in the faith, nor can it work upon them, because the power of the Lord is with them; but them that are empty and double-minded it leadeth astray.
2[34]:2 For when it seeth such men in prosperity it insinuates itself into the heart of the man, and for no cause whatever the man or the woman is embittered on account of worldly matters, either about meats, or some triviality, or about some friend, or about giving or receiving, or about follies of this kind. For all these things are foolish and vain and senseless and inexpedient for the servants of God.
2[34]:3 But long-suffering is great and strong, and has a mighty and vigorous power, and is prosperous in great enlargement, gladsome, exultant, free from care, glorifying the Lord at every season, having no bitterness in itself, remaining always gentle and tranquil. This long-suffering therefore dwelleth with those whose faith is perfect.
2[34]:4 But angry temper is in the first place foolish, fickle and senseless; then from foolishness is engendered bitterness, and from bitterness wrath, and from wrath anger, and from anger spite; then spite being composed of all these evil elements becometh a great sin and incurable.
2[34]:5 For when all these spirits dwell in one vessel, where the Holy Spirit also dwelleth, that vessel cannot contain them, but overfloweth.
2[34]:6 The delicate spirit therefore, as not being accustomed to dwell with an evil spirit nor with harshness, departeth from a man of that kind, and seeketh to dwell with gentleness and tranquillity.
2[34]:7 Then, when it hath removed from that man, in whom it dwells, that man becometh emptied of the righteous spirit, and henceforward, being filled with the evil spirits, he is unstable in all his actions, being dragged about hither and thither by the evil spirits, and is altogether blinded and bereft of his good intent. Thus then it happeneth to all persons of angry temper.
2[34]:8 Refrain therefore from angry temper, the most evil of evil spirits. But clothe thyself in long-suffering, and resist angry temper and bitterness, and thou shalt be round in company with the holiness which is beloved of the Lord. See then that thou never neglect this commandment; for if thou master this commandment, thou shalt be able likewise to keep the remaining commandments, which I am about to give thee. Be strong in them and endowed with power; and let all be endowed with power, as many as desire to walk in them."
Mandate 6
1[35]:1 I charged thee," saith he, "in my first commandment to guard faith and fear and temperance." "Yes, Sir," say I. "But now," saith he, "I wish to show thee their powers also, that thou mayest understand what is the power and effect of each one of them. For their effects are two fold. Now they are prescribed alike to the righteous and the unrighteous.
1[35]:2 Do thou therefore trust righteousness, but trust not unrighteousness; for the way of righteousness is straight, but the way of unrighteousness is crooked. But walk thou in the straight [and level] path, and leave the crooked one alone.
1[35]:3 For the crooked way has no tracks, but only pathlessness and many stumbling stones, and is rough and thorny. So it is therefore harmful to those who walk in it.
1[35]:4 But those who walk in the straight way walk on the level and without stumbling: for it is neither rough nor thorny. Thou seest then that it is more expedient to walk in this way."
1[35]:5 "I am pleased, Sir," say I, "to walk in this way." "Thou shalt walk," he saith, "yea, and whosoever shall turn unto the Lord with his whole heart shall walk in it.
2[36]:1 "Hear now," saith he, "concerning faith. There are two angels with a man, one of righteousness and one of wickedness."
2[36]:2 "How then, Sir," say I, "shall I know their workings, seeing that both angels dwell with me?"
2[36]:3 "Hear," saith he, "and understand their workings. The angel of righteousness is delicate and bashful and gentle and tranquil. When then this one enters into thy heart, forthwith he speaketh with thee of righteousness, of purity, of holiness, and of contentment, of every righteous deed and of every glorious virtue. When all these things enter into thy heart, know that the angel of righteousness is with thee. [These then are the works of the angel of righteousness.] Trust him therefore and his works.
2[36]:4 Now see the works of the angel of wickedness also. First of all, he is quick tempered and bitter and senseless, and his works are evil, overthrowing the servants of God. Whenever then he entereth into thy heart, know him by his works."
2[36]:5 "How I shall discern him, Sir," I reply, "I know not." Listen," saith he. "When a fit of angry temper or bitterness comes upon thee, know that he is in thee. Then the desire of much business and the costliness of many viands and drinking bouts and of many drunken fits and of various luxuries which are unseemly, and the desire of women, and avarice, and haughtiness and boastfulness, and whatsoever things are akin and like to these--when then these things enter into thy heart, know that the angel of wickedness is with thee.
2[36]:6 Do thou therefore, recognizing his works, stand aloof from him, and trust him in nothing, for his works are evil and inexpedient for the servants of God. Here then thou hast the workings of both the angels. Understand them, and trust the angel of righteousness.
2[36]:7 But from the angel of wickedness stand aloof, for his teaching is evil in every matter; for though one be a man of faith, and the desire of this angel enter into his heart, that man, or that woman, must commit some sin.
2[36]:8 And if again a man or a woman be exceedingly wicked, and the works of the angel of righteousness come into that man's heart, he must of necessity do something good.
2[36]:9 Thou seest then," saith he, "that it is good to follow the angel of righteousness, and to bid farewell to the angel of wickedness.
2[36]:10 This commandment declareth what concerneth faith, that thou mayest trust the works of the angel of righteousness, and doing them mayest live unto God. But believe that the works of the angel of wickedness are difficult; so by not doing them thou shalt live unto God." 

     I cannot explain it any better than this, and I was delighted when I found this writing, which was removed from use early in early "Christian" church history.  This is a remarkable writing and I have made it available here.  While the title of this article is a bit rough, it does show how a woman and even a man can go from lovey-dovey to hell-on-earth in just a few seconds.  These kinds of exchanges will ultimately ruin what would otherwise be a good relationship.  Women seem to be more susceptible to flame throwing.  So, ladies, before you call your husband a bastard, moron, idiot, or some other unseemly word, try to stand aloof from the anger and just let it pass.  If you consciously look out for this problem, you'll be able to defeat it every time.  This temptation by a demon is a spiritual problem and it needs to be dealt with in a spiritual manner.  My way of dealing with anger like this is to repeat the commandments.  The idea behind it is that an evil spirit cannot stand to listen to the commandments, and flees the scene.  There are probably some other ways to do this, but I know this works so I don't need anything else; it hasn't failed me once.

Defeating Evil: Suppressing Anger


Walter Allen Thompson is the author of The Grace of Repentance: Keeping God's Commandments



Every Good Man is Free: Evil People are Slaves

     So also in the case of men; those who are under the dominion of anger, or appetite, or any other passion, or of treacherous wickedness, are in every respect slaves; and those who live in accordance with the law are free.  But the unerring law is right reason; not an ordinance made by this or that mortal, a corruptible and perishable law, a lifeless law written on lifeless parchment or engraved on lifeless columns; but one imperishable, and stamped by immortal nature on the immortal mind.  (Philo: full text here)

     Most of us have not considered the fact that when we engage in things that are evil, we are securing for ourselves our own slavery.  Evil is bondage, and those people who engage in it are slaves; even if they hold high government or religious office.  This is why when we submit to anger in our emotions, we are in a sense contributing to our own slavery because anger will usually lead to something bad or even worse than the thing that made us angry.  On the other hand, those of us who wish to live in freedom can do so by taking off the shackles of bondage by living in according to the natural law or God's commandments.  The people who are truly free are those who can manage to control their behavior to stay within the natural law.  I believe all of us already know what the natural law is if we take the time to think about such things.
     Here in this example, Philo explains that the "unerring law" is right reason.  I understand this to mean that the laws that we observe through nature and our own ability to reason is much stronger and gives life.  Whereas, written laws coming from mankind have no life in them because they are probably not capable of it.  The reason is that man-made laws are corruptible, lifeless, written on dead trees; whereas, the laws that give life are stamped by immortal nature and on the immortal mind.
The laws that give life are those laws that we observe every day.  We, as men and women, should be more careful considering our own actions and words.
     I don't know anyone in their right mind who would be willing to get on the next slave ship, and then be beaten, tortured, and worked to the bone to an inch of his life.  Yet, when we do evil things, that's exactly what we are doing to ourselves.  When we choose evil we are then as people who are on a slave ship.  Evil provides no profit, no happiness, no goodness, and no life--only death.  So it seems to me that the better course of action is to head off the evil before it gets started in our lives; making us slaves to our own bad judgment.
     Government and religion as we know them today do not provide life as God intended.  I'm sure that the Creator never envisioned the type of lives that we know today.  But a lot of it is caused because most of us never knew anything different.  We really thought that evil was fun: love, sex, and rock n roll.  Love should have been a consideration for other people such as kindness, compassion, and making other people happy.  But love, as said by an evil person, is generally used as a word for lust.  Sex is primarily for the procreation of children; not an end unto itself.  Rock n roll provides the drumbeat-trance for the lust.
     This is how most of us were enslaved, and we thought we were having a good time.  The problem is that these things become our chains of bondage.  Homosexuals think that they have more freedom when the facts are they are slaves to their own depravity.  And in order to make themselves feel better in their true misery, they try to force others to accept their deviant behavior.  Evil is the chain of bondage.  So, while most people would never consider embarking upon the slave ship voluntarily, that's exactly what we do when we chose the side of evil.  Nothing good gets done with things that are evil.  If I do evil, then I can expect a complete life in misery and bondage.  It's worth my while to stay separated from that to the extent it is possible.
     The way that we can disembark from this slave ship is to understand that the natural law is contained in right reason and that when we choose those things which are virtuous and seemly, we are now throwing off the chains of bondage.  The bad results of evil depart from our being and life become more enjoyable and more productive.  But the choosing of evil will continually conflict with our own mind and soul it will inflict not only bondage but continual pain.  So, if I don't like the bad things, the easiest thing to do is to stop being a bad person.  Start to become a good person by learning how to properly abide by the natural laws that God established.
     As one who has tried to use government laws, I can tell you first hand, that Philo's description of them being corruptible, perishable, lifeless, and written on lifeless parchment is spot on.  Even speaking with a government official now is to speak with a chronic liar.  When I hear their speech, I hear gibberish.  It really doesn't make any sense to me and I don't bother trying to understand it any longer.  It is a big waste of time as it is people like that who are the "unlawful masters."  The only laws any man is responsible for are God's natural laws.  If the law is confusing or not obvious, then I don't think it came from God, but rather, the perverted mind of a man.

But all virtuous men are skilful in all the affairs which belong to life, inasmuch as they are so with respect to the things which belong to universal nature; and some of them are free; and so therefore are they who have the freedom of speaking to them on equal terms; therefore no virtuous man is a slave, but all are free.

     A virtuous man becomes skilful not only in the affairs in his life, he is able to keep himself off the slave ship.  I think this also means that he becomes on equal terms with those who would want to enslave him.  A man of virtue and good conduct is a free man; he has no chains of bondage.  He is free to live the way God intended.  And even though we all may be caught up in the evil at one time are another, the easiest way to avoid it is to cut off the evil and disassociate ourselves from it.  While governments and religions seem to enjoy making people miserable, it is they themselves who are the slaves.  They are the depraved ones who do not respect what God created.  It is the government and religious people who instigate all kinds of evil against others; thereby ruining their own lives as they themselves are slaves to their own depravity.
     Holding the line against evil is important in order to be a free man.  Free men do good things without offending the Creator.  Thus, the objective for every man, woman, and child should include efforts to be a good person.  We are supposed to be good people.  Many so-called "Christians" may object to this, but they are slaves to their own vicious teachings in which they say that no man can be a good person; completely defeating life as God intended.  This is why I don't listen to people like that because they are in gross error and they cannot use right reason.  However, building virtues and learning the difference between right and wrong will keep a man off the slave ship and will provide him with the path for freedom.

The Beard: Reasserting Masculinity


      About seven years ago, I went to prison for questioning the veracity of the income tax laws, and during that time I made a study of God's commandments.  I did use the Bible, but after my experience with authorities and law,  I inherently do no trust writings any longer, and I had to have another way to confirm the writing just in case the scribble was in error.  What I did is to read the commandment and then see if I could find something in the natural law to where the two fit together.  Because I placed a high value on the commandments, I wanted to know if the commandment in Leviticus 19:27 made sense.  It says: "Ye shall not cut round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the tufts of thy beard."  Since it is a natural occurrence that a man grows a beard and that it is exclusive to a man, it made sense to me to stop shaving.  My only intent was to stay in line with the commandments and the natural law, and it was my hope that the beard would improve my life in some way.
     A friend of mine had sent me a writing from Clement of Alexandria and in that writing he called shaving effeminate and womanly.  I never considered myself in those two categories so that convinced me that Leviticus was a true statement and that I should grow out my beard.  What happened after that was remarkable as I wasn't quite prepared for it.
     A lady supervisor in the kitchen said: "Thompson, when are you going to shave your facial hair?"
I responded: "When you grow a beard."  We had a good laugh over it and I continued to grow it.
One inmate said to me: "Why don't you shave?"  I asked: "Why?"  He said: "So you can be clean."
I then asked him: "Do you shave your ass?"  He said with a red face: "No!"   I then said: "Well, you want to be clean don't you?"  
     The logic of shaving just doesn't make any sense.  I did it because it was considered "clean" and that facial hair was somehow dirty.  But I think there is another reason that shaving is encouraged.
     Shaving is another way of submitting to the authority of government, schools, and the workplace.
I think that shaving is an act of submission and it is just another way to usurp the masculinity of the man.  As my beard grew, I became the target of more and more harassment.  Now, since I have a good sense of humor, this kind of razzing from the inmates didn't bother me; in fact, I enjoyed the attention.  I was once standing in line for food, and one guy says: "Hey Thompson, when are you going to shave?"  I said something like: "Don't worry about it girly-face."  Once I said girly-face, some other inmates decided to grow their beards too.  But if shaving is effeminate and womanly, a man should never want to shave his face.
     I think there is a great benefit to having a beard.  One thing I noticed right off the bat was that I was treated with a little more respect.  The Mexicans would call me: "Barbon."  But what was more satisfying than most anything is that I was obeying a commandment that I had been ignoring all my life.  Most religious organizations had their reasons not to grow beards, and if you look at so-called 
"Christian" pastors today, most of them do not have beards.  I think that any man is missing the mark with a shaved face, I really do think that because I can actually feel the difference.  I feel a bit more on top of things with the beard.  
     In fact, I've seen a lot of before and after photos of men who have grown beards and they do look better with the beard.  If you Google "before and after beard photos" you'll be able to see the difference.  I think the beard looks much better.
     The beard also shows that the man is presenting himself in a natural way.  I hadn't thought much about this before, but really, a smooth face looks great on a woman but not on a man.
     I think women would respect men more if they looked more like a man.  I believe that men could reassert their masculinity by growing their beards as God intended.  I'm not saying that men with shaved faces aren't masculine, as much as shaving is a part of the new age brain-washing since the days of the Roman Empire.  If a man is created in the image of God, then it makes sense for him to look the way he was created.  I feel complete as a man.  I feel at the very least, intellectually stronger.  My health seems to be good for someone my age.
     In today's world, men need all the help they can get to resist the feminist psychos.  Growing a beard will help get that done.

Is Shaving Queer?


Walter Allen Thompson has a new book called Natural Law: The True Supreme Law of the Land




:

The True Supreme Law of the Land


     
     The Constitution of the United States claims that it is "the supreme law of the land."  But is it?  Are men, women, and children to look that the constitution as a complete document of law?  Does the constitution govern every facet of the lives of all who supposedly live under it?  Does any man-made law every usurp the authority of God's law?  Does any man-made law usurp the authority of the natural law, which in my mind is the same laws that are spelled out in the commandments.  I believe that the natural law and the commandments are one and the same.  Since all men of all cultures and races breath the same air, eat the same foods, drink the same water; all necessary for sustaining life, that it would be impossible for their to be different spiritual beings establishing various religions depending upon the whim of any man.  Thus, it would only follow that the God who created the heavens and the earth is the same God for everyone.  It seems to me that this God laid out all of his rules via the natural law, and not necessarily through some writing.  If a writing truly reflects God's will then it is usable, but if it violates the commandments and natural law, then it is not a true testimony.
     It is impossible to call any written document "the supreme law of the land."  But this evil idea comes from the mind of Satan; it does not come from the Creator.  Nothing that is created can do what God does, because man is a created being.  Interestingly, many religions make the claim that they are the only true religion, yet, most of them don't believe within their own teachings, let alone within God's law.  There are too many stupid doctrines that just don't make any sense in all of the religions.  Why give any of them the time of day?  When any organization or group of people want to control others and steal their substance, then they are attempting to operate completely outside of God's natural order.  It doesn't make any sense to give these people authority of any kind.  Yet, most people we see in government are the type of people you wouldn't want to babysit your children, let alone run whole areas of the world.  The problem is that we tolerate evil people and we put too much authority in written documents when we should be using our thought processes to see whether something is good or bad or conforms to God's natural law.
     Is it good or is it bad?  How many of us really think about that before we do something?  Most of us will tend to just go with the flow.  We do things without thinking about whether it is right or wrong; good or bad.  But if we take the time to think things through, I believe that we will save ourselves a lot of grief.
     So then, all things we do in our lives should never offend God's commandments.  If we really want to be happy, we should always stay within the boundaries of the natural law.  This is where we are safe and secure.  I don't feel secure anywhere outside of those parameters.  I don't feel safe in any groups because the are too easily compromised.  What I can do is to work on myself by being the best person I can be within the natural laws.  This is where I feel the best.  I don't have any fear when I am behaving myself.  And I am at the point to where I do not wish to speak or associate with people who are going to upset my equanimity. It isn't worth the trouble.
     Most of us know that there is a spiritual war going on and most of us have been completely defenseless.  This is why I suggest that people simply repeat the commandments when that latent evil rears its ugly head.  I find that whatever that spiritual thing is, it doesn't like to hear God's commandments.  The religions that I know of don't teach this.  Yet, the evil cannot abide within the commandments.  The evil cannot compromise a man or woman who has God's commandments in the forefront of their minds.  The commandments are the most important tool God gave us to get rid of the evil and to live prosperous and productive lives.
     God's laws get great results; man's laws do not.  I have studied a lot of the various man-made laws to the point that my only conclusion that it is almost a complete waste of time  The only reason to study man-made laws is so that one can learn how to ignore them and just focus on God's laws.  Laws don't matter to the lawless.  Government people are chronic liars and/or they are so misinformed, that nothing is going to help them.  I don't like talking to them as I cannot or refuse to interact with them because they lie in their writings and they lie in their speech.  Every time I speak to one of those people I can't get any rational response.
     Therefore, from this point forward, I will limit my writings to those things which are more productive and will help myself and others live a better life, rather than keep pointing out the flaws of government and religions as there is no end to it.  Other researchers are doing that, and I don't think it is necessary for me to continue to point it all out without remedies for the problem.  Even looking upon evil stains the mind.  Sometimes we can't avoid it, but the continual looking at one thing or another just doesn't produce better results.  The only value to that is that we can learn what not to do, or how to avoid certain problems.  No government on earth is "the supreme law of the land"; God's law is the supreme law of the land.

Anger and Evil are Immature





     The one thing I can say about evil people or people who act evil is that they are completely immature and without reason.  This is why I don't even try to engage them when they are in this condition.  If I ever find myself in the same building with this kind of person, I start looking for the exits. Because I know that any inner-action with such a person is not going to be a productive experience.
     The problem is that most of us, including myself, have never learned to oppose evil.  Most of the time, we just take the crap and hope everything will come out well.  The problem is that people who are evil cannot function properly and they become completely irrational and immature because they have allowed themselves to be overcome by bad emotions.  This is demonic.  There's is no other way to say it.  Since evil is a product of the devil, it is important to recognize it when you see it, and then avoid it like a plague.  Anger is like the first temptation to commit murder.  There is usually no good thing that will come from this emotion, even when the anger may be justified.  The purpose of this article is to give some constructive ideas on how to effectively defend yourself and your family from this evil emotion.
     Anger, strife, jealousy, hatred, arguing, and other evil things are immature and there's no point in attempting to reason with anyone who is in this state.  It is like arguing with a 3-year-old in an adult body.  It doesn't make any sense to do this because I have never seen a good result, and I've had my share of experiences with this.  When it comes to a relationship between a husband and a wife, anger can devastate the whole family in just one swoop.
     For example a man who has been hen-pecked (bitched-out) for years, may explode and then hit his wife because he can't take it anymore.  Then, the government steps in and controls the rest of his life with family court and a myriad of sanctions--usually against the man.  The children see that their mother and father are now enemies, and the family is destroyed.  Anger and Evil's mission is accomplished.
     Psychology is in no position to help as it is junk science.  And the reason is that it centers upon the "self" rather than to look at God for solutions.  The "self" cannot do anything right if it tries to live outside God's commandments and his natural law.  They use acronyms to describe a behavior that is simply evil and immature.  The solution to the problem is simply getting control over these evil emotions and defeating the evil by not engaging in it.  It really is that simple.  And I'm going to present my idea on how to defeat the evil.
     The evil is weak and immature.  So if anger is an agent of evil, then to give in to the anger is going to put a person in an extremely compromised position.  Even if the anger is justified, that may bring on an action that is not.  These things have to be put in their proper place.
     For instance, I recently read a story in the local paper where a man got into a fight with someone who was talking with his girlfriend and the local sleaze-bag bar.  Now, whether he was protecting his girlfriend or just got extremely angry, he is now in serious legal troubles because he beat the man so bad that he had to be put into the hospital.  He's looking at around 10 years in prison, and major legal expenses.  Physical action should only be taken when necessary, and apparently, this was not one of those cases.  So he let his anger get a hold of him.  Then, he beat the man and almost killed him.  All of this, for talking to his girlfriend.  Anger and get out of control very quickly, and what was only a small thing, in this case, is now a major traumatic event for all concerned.  Here's the way to control this: when the feeling of anger starts, you can feel it.  Repeat the commandment, "Thou shalt not kill...." and the anger will go away as fast as it starts.  Then, whatever the problem happens to be, it can be dealt with in a more suitable manner.  Now, in my opinion, he should have never been in the bar in the first place.  I used to play music in bars, and I can tell you with first-hand experience, nothing good happens in a bar.  So, maybe the first step is to eliminate bars from your things to do.
If he wasn't in a bar, this wouldn't have happened.  There are some places people shouldn't go.  If you like to go to a bar, then go where there's at least a restaurant.
     Some people may find my solution too simplistic, and that was my initial reaction when I first learn this.  However, after using it a few times, especially when I had the opportunity to get into a fight in prison, this came in handy.  This works for sexual temptations, idolatry, lying,  and stealing.
The urge completely goes away because the demonic spirit, cannot survive with the spirit of God.
     The problem is spiritual and not mental. Demonic influences have always plagued mankind.  They try to get the upper hand by putting us in compromising positions through their temptations.  But these influences are easy to overcome if we recognize what is happening to us.  Mankind is created to live in peace and harmony with each other, but there's always the spiritual problem of evil.  The only way I know how to defeat it is to understand what it is and defeat it by not succumbing to the evil inclination.

Losing Hope

     There was an early Christian writing called the Shepherd of Hermes.  I learned from that just exactly what anger is and how it comes about.  I never knew that I actually had to guard myself against
anger.  Here is how it is described: "...the working of angry temper, how evil it is, and how it subverteth the servants of God by its own working, and how it leadeth them astray from righteousness.  But it doth not lead astray them that are full in the faith, nor can it work upon them, because the power of the Lord is with them; but them that are empty and double-minded it leadeth astray." It also expands on the elements of anger: "But angry temper is in the first place foolish, fickle and senseless; then from foolishness is engendered bitterness, and from bitterness wrath, and from wrath anger, and from anger spite; then spit being composed of all these evil elements becometh a great sin and incurable."  A person will lose all hope for a good life living under such conditions.   The most effective way I know to defeat this is to repeat the commandments when the evil rears its ugly head.  This has worked for me every time.  It clears the space around me so that I can function in a more seemly way.
    Not abiding in God's commandments is just asking for trouble.  It opens the door for even more evil and that evil is not easily controlled unless the commandments become the anchor for a man's body, mind, and soul.  Thus, I believe that these problems are caused from spiritual forces (for lack of a better term) completely outside the man.  They are the evil presence that tempt mankind to do evil things.  And I don't think anyone can argue with this because all we have to do is to observe it in action. The good spirit cannot live with the bad spirit.
     And when I think about it, I can't imagine just how damaging it is to a person's mind to be watching so much violence, sex, and other depravities and not have it affect their minds in a bad way.
These things fulminate evil in a man's mind--becoming very destructive to the person watching it and those who are family and friends.  These stinking movies and video games are the seeds of death.  Who needs them?  These things should never be looked at for any reason because this kind of material has a way of unsettling the spirit.  These things plant the seeds of destruction.  The fact is I believe God wanted us to enjoy our lives and not be miserable.  The commandments keep up in line with the creator's intent.
     Anger and evil are immature things that serve no useful purpose.  Anger does no establish any kind of good moral conduct because it is immature and childlike.  It is better to take some steps to clear the mind from them.  The media is intentionally attempting to destroy mankind.  There's no doubt about it in my mind.  The  intent is to depopulate the world, ruin the lives of those of us who are living, and do anything possible to offend God.  This is the satanic goal.  It is not inadvertent; it is intentional.  I have drastically cut down on what I see and hear.  I don't want to become a part of their intellectually diseased world.
    Finally,  anger destabilizes the man.  He cannot do anything good when he is angry and acting immature.  But unlike other things we have been told, anger is a spiritual problem--it is not mental.  Then the next step is knowing that we should resist the evil.  And of course, we resist it by not giving into the temptation.  The easiest way I know of to resist is to start thinking or speaking the commandment with which I'm being tempted and the urge to sin simply goes away.  How hard is that?
     (What I find interesting is that the writing: The Shepherd of Hermes, seem to have more practical value as to how to act like a "Christian" assuming there is such a thing.  Throughout the whole writing, the idea of repentance is thoroughly explained and I was absolutely delighted when I saw the writing.  Is it the word of God?  I don't know, I suppose if it reflects the will of God, it is at least truthful.  But I'm beginning to suspect that beautiful writings like this were left out of religious writings because they don't serve the satanic agenda.  Most of the writings that I have in the reference section of my website are of high value and they gave me a more practical way to conduct my life.)

Update: July 21, 2012

I've had at least two people write to me privately and said that they tried my method; which is so simple it is almost embarrassing.  They don't me it worked for them just the way I described it.  I always like it when I find something of value, and I think that this method can save a lot of people a ton of trouble.  If this is working for you, please put it in the comment section.  If you don't want to put it into that then you may send me a private email: tripleog2010 [at] gmail.com

God's Law is Natural Law

          How do we know God's laws?  What books shall we read in order to know the will of God?  By God I mean the creator of the heavens and the earth and all they contain.  If an organization puts together a writing, how do we know that these writings are true and by what authority?  Do the writings have the authority of God?  How can we test the veracity of these writings?  What should we do if we are not sure?  Where is the doctrine of true liberty?  I'll try to explain my thoughts and experiences and put them together in a way that I hope will make some common sense in a world that seems to contain so little.
     
God's laws are self-evident

     Throughout the course of our lives, we see the evidence of God in nature.  We can see the beauty and complexity of life itself and we know that at some point, God would have had to put it all together.  We don't know why he did it or how he did it; we just know that he did do it and everything he created has its place in the order of life.  We can't see God, but we know he exists.  There is a latent knowledge in every man, woman, and child that God is always present and we can sense it everyday.  Some will say that we can't see God, and that is true, but we also can't see the wind nor can we see gravity but we can feel the effects of those natural "laws".  We don't need a book to tell us these laws because instinctively, we know them already. 
     It has been my experience that everything that God created looks good in it's own way.  I walk or hike in the woods quite frequently, and I am astounded at the beauty of it.  I see something different almost every day.  Some plants bloom only for a few days, and their beauty is most enjoyable to behold.  My favorite hobby is to take photos (many are posted on my blog) of the things that I see most every day.  To me, this is the evidence that God not only exists, but that he made everything good.  How he did it is not for me to know unless he wants me to know.  The miracle of life is something that no man can duplicate.  Only a twisted psycho could think that he can put himself at the same level as God the creator.
 
God's World Order

     All of nature must stay within the Creator's natural order of life; I call it: God's World Order.  And within that order is what mankind is supposed to maintain by using his own common sense and the guidelines of the commandments, which should be self-evident through the use of reason.
     The commandment of not having any false gods before the Creator makes sense.  Who in their right mind would want to worship the created?  That is evil and it is stupid.  Yet many religions teach that people can be gods.  That idea is completely insane.  The commandment against taking the Lord's name in vain makes sense because no one but God could possible know what the future holds.
Honoring ones mother and father makes sense.  However, the commandment for the Sabbath is one commandment that cannot be properly reasoned.  While for some it makes sense under a religious tradition, hardly any religion can agree whether it is to be on Saturday or Sunday.  Rather than speculate or make a wrong choice, I simply put that one aside until I completely understand it.  We know it is evil to murder someone.  If we lie, we distort other people's minds.  If we steal or are coveteous of another's property, we are giving ourselves unjust gain.  These things make sense, and those people who apply these principles will have more freedom in their lives because they will not have to bear the burden of their sins; which have their own retribution.

Testing the scribble
 
     So when I read anything, I try to test it with the natural law and the commandments.  My first job is to determine if the writing is true.  I also test it to see if it is good or bad.   If it is good, then I use it.  If it is not; then I put it aside or I throw it out altogether.  Any writing that is a lie has no place to be in anyone's mind.  Twisted information has no value.  The problem with most writings is that they seem to carry an authority that they may not deserve.  Just because someone wrote something down doesn't necessarily mean that it has any authority.  People tend to put too much faith in the scribble, and not enough effort to find out the facts.
     Beside testing the writing for good or bad, true of false, I also look for contradictions.  Searching for contradictions is more difficult.  Here, I may be using truthful information on one hand, and then 
deceptive or incorrect information on the other.  However, at the point of contradiction, I will immediately know when something is wrong, and that I need to do some more research and investigation.  But when I connect the dots as to what is true, I usually come out with an accurate picture of what is really happening.  I may not like what I see, but I have a better understanding.

True Liberty; True Freedom

     True liberty and true freedom resides within the truth.  The truth cannot be altered, it is the state of the case.  The truth is a fact.  Thus, abiding within the natural law has the best chance for success because we can already see how the things in nature are there for the enjoyment of life.  In God's World Order, we have peace and enjoyment of all of the benefits of being men, women, and children.
In the New World Order, everything is completely reversed and turned into evil.  So then it makes sense to make sure we live and abide within the commandments to secure the benefit of being alive.
Life under the New World Order is one of depravity and bondage and it really isn't necessary if mankind can learn to keep the natural law.

Resisting Evil

     All of us are subject to a spiritual battle.  The evil that tries to influence us to do something wrong is always present.  When I was doing some research in earlier Christian and Jewish writings, I happened upon the idea of repeating the commandments to get rid of the evil influences.  I thought it was a great idea, and I use it to this day.  I've mentioned this on other article I've written on this blog, but it deserves repeating.  If I am tempted with fornication or sexual sin, then I simply repeat the commandment against it and the urge goes away.  I always try to keep myself separated from anything that could get me into trouble.  I've had people who have written back to me recently who tell me that they are getting the same results.  Evil cannot reside near a person who has God's commandments in their heart and mind.  By repeating the commandment with which you are being tempted, appears to be a sure way of defeating the urge to commit the sin.  If I start to get angry, I use the commandment for not killing because anger is the first step toward a murder.  This is the easiest way that I know of to stay out of trouble.  Of course, none of the modern religions teach this, but I found it hidden away in other writings that are not as popular for whatever reason.  It's a great way of staying safe.
     Finally, God's law, which is natural law, is a man's complete resistance to evil.  Repeating those laws, whether verbally or just in ones mind will drive away the evil inclination.  Evil is completely unnatural and it should be avoided.  And that means for me that I don't read as much as I used to because there is simply too much evil to absorb and it starts to be a big burden.  Chasing the evil away is the best way to keep life enjoyable and meaningful.

Pandering to Homosexuals



"Calling a person a pervert does nothing
to help someone who is homosexual or
who struggles with homosexual feelings."
     Recently, a struggling homosexual man objected to my use of the word pervert in criticizing homosexual behavior.  I say struggling in that he is trying to overcome homosexuality.  Having been a musician in the 70s and working at various corporations in Southern California, my only conclusion is that homosexuals are perverts.  This guy tried to use the example of a lame man to that of a homosexual.
     The difference between the lame man and the homosexual is that being lame is not a choice; whereas, a man who is a homosexual is someone who chose it for himself. There is a big difference between the two: the first is not chosen, the last is a bad condition that is self-inflicted. I think the photo is ludicrous. 
     Why should anyone pander to homosexuals? He did it to himself. He should man up; stop being a little baby, and continue to act like a man and put the immature stuff aside. Homosexuality is the mother of immaturity. Also, porn is extremely dangerous so don't look at it. When you get a homosexual urge, I would recommend repeating the commandment of which you are being tempted. In the case of homosexuals, I recommend that you repeat the commandment from Leviticus 20:13: "The man also that lieth with the male, as one lieth with a woman, they have both committed abomination: they shall die the death, their blood shall be upon them." Homosexuals are people who destroy themselves and usually their friends and families. The filth spreads rapidly throughout society. By repeating the commandment, he should lose the urge. No one I know teaches this. I learned it from writings outside of the Bible. The principle of this is that if a man needed to test a spirit to see whether it was from God or not, all he had to do is to repeat the commandments-- and if the spirit was evil--it would go away. So I just transferred that idea to a temptation and it seemed to work. One day in prison, there was a nice place to sit with trees with about three benches. It was kind of crowded on day and I wanted more room, so I started going over the commandments with another inmate. Within five minutes, I had the place mostly to myself. Evil people cannot stand to listen to the commandments and most of them cleared out because they couldn't stand listening to them. The power of God for mankind are the commandments.
     I believe that the inclination for homosexuality is a temptation that comes from the evil spiritual world.  And if there's no defense against it, many will fall into the trap of homosexuality.  So the commandments repeated in ones mind or even out loud should get rid of the temptation.  Doing this for fornication will work the same way.
     Government and religions do not really care what happens to the victims of homosexuals, especially in the cases of child abuse. To even try to mainstream that which is so vile as mainstream; well, to me, that is completely off the hook, and that's why I call them perverts. People who accept homosexuality are just as perverted as the ones who are doing it. The nonsense is just plain evil, and if he wants to have a nice life, he should be able to stop. Repeating the commandments works for me, and it should work for Ted. If he has a problem like this, it needs to be corrected quickly. But to wring his hands over my use of the word pervert is ridiculous. He should be more concerned about making sure he doesn't become a pervert any longer. That way, the use of the word won't bother him. 
     The temptation for sexual sin is a spiritual temptation and none of us have learned how to control it. When I get a temptation for anything, I repeat the commandment and the problem goes away. The evil spirit (or whatever you want to call it) cannot be around a person who likes to keep the commandments. So when one thinks about one of God's commandments, the urge to break it leaves. And this is why evil is so weak.
     This is a severe problem, and I refuse to minimize it. Homosexuality and porn will lead to child abuse. None of the sexual sins serve no purpose for a man. I suggest this man simply act like a man, make his corrections, and then go live within the commandments. Yes, it is a struggle sometimes, but I just gave him something new that should help. There's no point in homosexuality other than to destroy oneself and other people. Homosexuals would do well to get away from it for the sake of their physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.
     Going from sin to obedience to God's commandments means that the person had repented of his sins and is now willing to obey God and live a life free from the bondage of sin.  It isn't that hard.
Homosexuality is bondage, and sex with one's lawful husband or wife is liberty.
     So on one hand, I do commend this man's desire to be free of homosexuality, but on the other, the fact is that homosexuals are perverts and there's no point in minimizing it.  He should be more concerned with staying free from the perversion.  When he defeats homosexuality, he will no longer be a pervert.

Home Depot is a company of perverts 
Boycott Homo Depot here
And cancel your Homo Box Office

My take on the Home Depot pandering to homosexuals is that if anyone who works or buys from this company, some of your money is going to be used for the promotion of homos.  Just as with JC Penny, don't buy from the schmucks.
