'Christianity' has messed up more than western culture
I'll prove my point beginning with the chords to "All Along the Watchtower" by U 2:
All I've got is a red guitar, Three chords and The Truth.
All I've got is my bleedin' heart, and a voice cryin' out
of the wilderness to you
I see there is a way out of here,
a way to get some relief...
I AM very small,
I AM so very very small,
So small as to indwell the heart of every atom,
and I AM beyond your comprehension...
I hear Wisdom calling from the highest point of the city;
*'Wisdom has built her house and She calls to all; "Come, eat my food and drink my wine and you will live abundant life and walk in the ways of understanding." [*Proverbs 9: 4-6]
Wisdom calls; "I have built it; will you come? Do you have eyes to see and ears to hear?
Holy Wisdom, the Feminine Divinity: Hokema,
Who was with The Word from the very beginning,
She is One with Him and He with Her;
Pure Being; One God;
One Creator; One Lover of All the Human Family...
But let me tell a little story to illuminate you-if you haven't heard
I see you lookin' at me like you think I've skated off the edge -
The one about the Rabbi Hillel,
Who lived 100 years before The Christ walked the earth as a male
That wise Rabbi knew that the Hebrew understanding of Hokema;
Holy Wisdom; The Feminine Divinty
Was the same as the Greek understanding of The Logos: The Word.
It was Saint's Paul and John who first understood
The Word was good and
The Word was The Logos
The Word is The Christ
It was John on Rubber Soul who intuitively knew:
"The Word is just The Way and The Word is Love"
Use your imagination and you will see that before Christ walked the earth a man,
He was already a She:
Hokema, Holy Wisdom; the Feminine Divinity
and isn't that good news?
The God Head is One Pure Being;
as much male as female
as much mommy as daddy.
And we are all children of Her Universe;
And **He is the oldest personality because He is the origin of everything;
and everything is born of Him.
He is the supreme controller of the universe,
the maintainer and instructor of humanity.
He is smaller than the smallest.[**Bhagavad-Gita]
He indwells the heart of every atom and
She is beyond the Universe.
Wisdom is calling,
She is rattling your windows and shaking your walls
With some more good news of the
and three always beats one
and not just that,
I've got a fourth.
Get out your Good Book sisters and brothers and chew on this;
Matthew 12:31-32, Mark 3:28-29, and Luke 12:10
are simpatico with gnostic Thomas saying 44:
'Jesus said: "Whoever blasphemes against the father will be forgiven, whoever blasphemes against the son will be forgiven, but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven either on earth or in heaven."
Which means, God is within every sister, brother and all Creation,
wake up to your own divinity and
Get a clue Christian:
His ways are not your ways and Her thoughts are not your thoughts
Dominion never meant to rape and plunder,
but to nurture, care and love
And if you have not love, you have nothing at all
And on that final day we all will stand naked before The Creator
And we have been warned that there will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth
by those who were so sure they were in, because they are the ones left out.
WAKE UP Christian!
Hear the wind begin to howl.

In his final years, Martin Luther King, Jr. become increasingly focused on the problem of poverty in America.
- Despite being widely known for his leadership role in the American civil rights movement, Martin Luther King, Jr. also played a central role in organizing the Poor People's Campaign of 1968.
- The campaign was one of the first to demand a guaranteed income for all poor families in America.
- Today, the idea of a universal basic income is increasingly popular, and King's arguments in support of the policy still make a good case some 50 years later.
She met mere mortals with and without the Vatican's approval.
- For centuries, the Virgin Mary has appeared to the faithful, requesting devotion and promising comfort.
- These maps show the geography of Marian apparitions – the handful approved by the Vatican, and many others.
- Historically, Europe is where most apparitions have been reported, but the U.S. is pretty fertile ground too.
For Damien Echols, tattoos are part of his existential armor.
- In prison Damien Echols was known by his number SK931, not his name, and had his hair sheared off. Stripped of his identity, the only thing he had left was his skin.
- This is why he began tattooing things that are meaningful to him — to carry a "suit of armor" made up the images of the people and objects that have significance to him, from his friends to talismans.
- Echols believes that all places are imbued with divinity: "If you interact with New York City as if there's an intelligence behind... then it will behave towards you the same way."
