Once upon a time there was a Church. A Church for the poor, poor at heart and the wretched of the Earth. A time when the Church leaders were poorer than the Church rat but rich and filled with the SPIRIT of GOD; endowed with knowledge, power and wisdom.
There was a time when there was GOD before GOD was stolen by the priests to be COMMERCIALIZED and MONOPOLIZED, HYPNOTIZING the mind of the people to see THEM as GOD and not GOD as GOD. Whereas their CLAY LEGS easily reveal their DECEITS and LIES.
We have had enough of the God that books have killed and murdered on the pulpit! Enough of that God presented a SINNER HUNTER, a GOD with COLD FACE, always ready to kill and maim anyone that questions. A GOD so INCAPABLE of speaking, acting, ruling WITHOUT the INTERVENTION of PEOPLE created by the same GOD. An Irony!
What Does the New Church needs?
We need and will have a God that:
- Theology cannot caricature or Islamic fundamentalist cannot hijack to reign havoc and terror,
- A moral law that cannot be relaxed,
- A church that will be HUMANITARIAN and not filled with CON MASTERS taking from those that have not to give to those that already have more than enough, sleeping and dining with politicians to steal the COMMONWEALTH of the people, conniving with the authorities to impoverish the citizens.
Do you look forward to the New Church?
I look anxiously for the moment, that hour when the CHURCH will disentangle herself from the World into whose meshes she has fallen as to champion a new man’s inalienable search of God! Defender of the abused and rejected.
I look forward to a CHURCH with opened hands to receive the SINNERS, THE ABSURD, THE CONDEMNED, THE REJECTED, THE WRETCHED, THE INCAPABLE, THE UNACCEPTABLE, THOSE IN DARE NEEDS, THE NAKED, THE WIDOWS, THE ORPHANS, THE MISERABLE, THE ELDERS.
I look forward to a church that will be honest enough to call SPADE by its name, a church that will be pillar to rally round in the face of persecution, a church that will give hope to the hopeless.
I look forward to a de-politicized CHURCH, a CHURCH where the PRESIDENT will not be SHOWN on pages of the newspapers or TV kneeling down receiving anointment or atonement a CORRUPTION on ITS own of the HIGHEST ORDER.
I look forward to a church that will assist members to attain their spiritual height, a church that will minister to couples and not setting them apart. A church that will not pressure her congregations to part with their hard earned money.
I look forward to a CHURCH manned by true apostles NOT CON MASTERS!
Is it difficult to find such CHURCH in this age?
