Fantasy And Fancy Dress.

Lessons from History.

Priests and Politicians have always exploited the society by using two convenient ideas.

God & Religion.

It has always been that way.

I am glad my parents were not oriented that way. They were simple folks more concerned and involved in the day to day struggles of life. They spent most of their time working hard to provide for the family.

Incidentally I also came across some very profound books that shaped my thinking. I was anti-god in my teenage years.

Now I think of myself as an AGNOSTIC.

I think it is not necessary to waste time thinking and arguing if god exists or otherwise.

It is always an intelligent decision to

LIVE to the maximum.

Be KIND to others.

Treat people in HUMANE ways.


This is what I have realised in my experience.

GOD is man's Fantasy.
RELIGION is his Fancy dress.

December 1970, a voice spoke to me about the future. A week later, it came true. June 1976, a man appeared only to me at a wedding dinner. He showed me more about the future. It also came true. Both times, lots of people around, but only I was aware. There is some type of higher power in this universe,

Please, please be so very careful with demonic influences. It is horrifying to fall prey to Satan or his demons:

Thanks for the advice. Both times, i never felt they were from Satan. I didn't understand why they chose me. To this day, I'm still trying to understand the big picture. I just accept and tell others there is more in our universe than what our mortal eyes can see.

You're quite welcome my friend. If you don't mind my asking, how would you know if they were Satanic or not?

Without having something to compare with, it would be hard to say if it was Satanic, Angelic, Alien, Inter-Dimensional or whatever. I was not given thoughts to cause harm, only snippets of the future.

I invite you, then, to consider the following:

"16 Now it happened that as [Paul and Silas] were going to the place of prayer, a servant girl with a spirit, a demon of divination, met us. She supplied her masters with much profit by fortune-telling.

17 This girl kept following Paul and us and crying out with the words: “These men are slaves of the Most High God+ and are proclaiming to you the way of salvation.” 18 She kept doing this for many days.

Finally Paul got tired of it and turned and said to the spirit: “I order you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” And it came out that very hour." -Acts 16:16-18 (Bracket mine.)

I get that. Also, the demons cast out of swine.
On the flip side, Angels appeared many times to tell of the future throughout the Bible.
These things didn't happen to me until after I went to the church alter and said the Sinner's Prayer.
Right after that, I had my first ESP experience. I wrote about it (Experience 1). Everyone wanted me to tell them more. I kept telling them "I can only tell you what Jesus shows me."

And how do you know that church you attended is of God Almighty? After all, 2 Corinthians 11:14,15 warn us not to go strictly by appearances since Satan transforms himself into an angel of light and his ministers take on the semblance of Christ's when they're, in fact, Antichrist.

Good point.
I have grown up with relatives as preachers. Currently, my brother is a preacher and chaplain. His son is also a preacher. My wife's friend us a preacher. We've attended several different churches. i can tell you about how preachers lie, threaten you and threaten to take my children away. There is no church that I'm impressed with.
Let's look at those who knew Jesus first hand. Thomas kept doubting him. Peter kept denying he knew Jesus. Judas betrayed him. So, only 75% of the people,Jesus personally picked, truly followed him.

And yet, Christ promised his sedulous disciples, "I am with you all the days until the conclusion of the system of things." (Matthew 28:20) Thus, Christ pledged undying loyalty to his loyal followers to our very day and beyond.

Question is, who are these loyal ones Christ continues to care for today? Any thoughts on how to clearly identify these?

I get that Jesus will always be there. You question was "how do you know that church you attended is God almighty?"
It's next to impossible to clearly identify loyal ones.

Oh, really, this is too painful to watch!
RiverBedView - meet Max.
Max wants to sign you up for the jehovah witness sect. Please join them now, and spare us all these leading pseudo-questions. i, for one, would very much like to see you join Max's sect.
Max - meet RiverbedView.
you should definitely enlist him into your sect... i'm sure that he'll fit in very well, and that your controllers will thank you for bringing him into their midst.
In fact, i'd go so far as to say that you definitely deserve each other!

Thanks NewJaninev2.
Actually, I was going to pop his bubble today. You popped it first. The biggest thing I find annoying from Bible thumpers is how they throw scripture at you and that's supposed to settle the discussion. I try to be respectful of everyone. In 1987, we gad a family reunion. That day, I beat up my preacher brother. Even his wife was mad at him and told him " This is what your psychiatrist is talking about!"

What makes you say that?

Can you take a moment and explain to me what’s so wrong with this?

“YOU heard that it was said, ‘You must love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ However, I say to YOU: Continue to love YOUR enemies and to pray for those persecuting YOU; that YOU may prove yourselves sons of YOUR Father who is in the heavens, since he makes his sun rise upon wicked people and good and makes it rain upon righteous people and unrighteous. For if YOU love those loving YOU, what reward do YOU have? (Matthew 5:43-46)
