At least nobody calls us the Great Satan

Hi readers.

We followers and practitioners of the older, more traditional, more mature and simpler stone and copper age religions are frequently scorned and ridiculed by followers of the younger bronze and iron age religions.  But I’ve never known it to go further than that.  Who ever heard of anyone getting burned at the stake for praying the sun up, or praying the moon up?

Fact is, once the later religions got going well they were too busy killing one another off to bother with anything as simple and harmless as sun worship.  They had important matters of nuance, doctrine, hair-trigger ‘kill-them-all-and-let-God-sort-them-out’ heresies.

Iron age Christians frequently refer to Catholics, for instance, as ‘the Great Satan’.  Iron age Muslims, similarly often refer to Christians as the Great Satan.  Nobody’s ever been called the Great Satan for praying up the sun in the morning and down at night.

Bronze age Hebrews, meanwhile, were slaughtered and dispersed from the Middle East by bronze age Romans following a hybridized bronze age religion.  After which the bronze age Hebrews were accused of killing Christ and treated as criminals and worse throughout Europe and Russia for 2000 years.

Nobody ever accused anyone who prays the sun up in the morning and down at night of killing Jesus.  Nobody ever ran sun worshipers out of any country I can think of.

Fact is, though, someone should do something about the damned moon worshipers.  Those people really piss me off.

    Evening Troops,
    There has been much done wrong in the name of religion and specifically Christianity. I will not even get into cults from Mohammedism to the JW’s and Latter Day Saints.

    But you will find that the early church of some 50,000 Jews and others and people like the Apostle Paul, converted by Christ appearing to him on the road to Damascus (Syria today) on the way to have Christians jailed and possibly killed and ironically called afterwards the Apostle to the Gentiles and the Apostle Peter, who was the Apostle to the Jews and died at the hands of the Romans being crucified upside down.

    But the teachings and the changes in the hearts of true believers that have turned from their self centered lives and sins to God in repentance and received righteousness or holiness on their account from Jesus Christ and received the Holy Spirit as their resident guide and their downpayment on their eventual admittance to the place we refer to as Heaven or the place where God, the elect angels, and Jesus Christ now reside with those believers that he has brought to himself at this time.

    When each of us dies and awakens in the “Other dimension” we will face our lives before God before or after we reside in the place of departed spirits: Hades or Heaven if we are to be headed there and not into door No. 2. What we have done with God’s promise to save all those that “Call on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ” and no other name, since he was the promised and prophesied sacrifice made to save humanity, if they will turn and accept that sacrifice made for them. What Jesus suffered in dying for the sins of the world can hardly be imagined. But many will scoff and reject what has been done for them and will have to stand in that state, when the world is finally judged according to the writers of Scriptures.

    Remember, you can teach a parrot to say, “I believe in Jesus.” And that parrot doesn’t thereby become a Christian. But as Christ said, “By their fruits you will know them. Christianity has been used as a political tool since the time of Rome.

    In Matthew Jesus is quotes as saying: “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
    Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
    Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
    Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
    Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
    A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
    Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
    Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

    Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

    Can we measure up to that? Probably not 100% in ourselves. But it is God’s will for us to trust in the death and blood of Christ shed for us. That hides us from His wrath. He accepts that and nothing else.

    O yes, the Great Satan will be there on that day and he and all who have followed him will be cast into the Lake of Fire, which is, I believe, what we call Hell. Not a nice thought and not necessarily a foregone conclusion for those who accept God’s gift, free to us.

    Friend and servant of Jesus Christ by His grace.

    • Hi Chuck. Thanks for the reply. That iron-age stuff does get complicated. Old Sol doesn’t bother much with lakes of fire and whatnot. Everything under Old Sol’s scrutiny, doesn’t need any excuses from Old Sol to do whatever it was going to do anyway, usually using some bronze or iron-age diety for supports and logic. Old Sol’s got no problem with that. He knows everything under the sun sits down on the carcass of something else for a meal or dies of starvation. Fundamental truths are what Old Sol’s all about. No room for cluttering it up with all those come-and-go now-you-see-it-now-you-don’t words and excuses. Gracias, Jack

  2. Lunatics…

  3. Nope, they have never been called the Great Satan, but they have been called heathens, pagans, infidels, and cannon fodder. And what is your problem with the Moon? It simply reflects the brilliance of the Sun, but she is much easier on the eyes!

    • Hi Steve: Yeah those moon worshipers do take the easy way out. But half the time it’s dark when they’re doing what they do. Can’t see a thing. Irksome. Gracias, J

  4. Yeah! All pasty and shit. Standing around soaking up all that weak pale light. Gives me the Heebie-Jeebies. I never could get a feel for that Moon worship stuff anyway. Seems kind of sneaky; you know? Not like standing in the warm basking glow of the “Alpha Disc”

  5. Heathens and pagans and infidels- oh my!

  6. After a considerable amount of pondering… I think I may lean a little towards the moon worshiping cult. The sun will give you sunstroke, sunburn, melanoma, freckles and many other maladies such as excessive vitamin D.

    Whereas the moon provides whispers in the ear whilst “pitching woo”, the tides in the oceans, cover to steal water melons, provides a much cooler and darker venue for sleeping and other peculiar things that are most usually performed at night.

    Now the moon is more reserved and more of a extrovert than the sun. Moon will not give you freckles and such, AND the moon is kind enough to dim it’s illumination to allow earthlings the chance to view the multitude of possible locations that may support life way out there in space… on a scheduled a well adhered to schedule.

    Kinda leaning that way… But Please do not tell my Mother.

    • Eddie: Mum’s the word then. Gracias J

      Incidently, had to order a tire and it won’t be in until monday… coming home I blew the other one on that side. No spare, so I’ll call the tire dealer tomorrow and have him order two. Big sale going on with 16.5x75s – 1 each for the price of three. Two for the price of six.

      These were both 2011 vintage, but a rock got stuck between them a while back, think I must have damaged them prying it out. Or maybe the rock did it by its ownself. Or maybe it’s the moon getting even with me. Gracias, J

  7. Good price for the tires… considering that you are going against the Moon Gods. Repent….. They think you should travel at night when the are in cool control.

    Get the tires replaced whilst you are in a place between here and bumphuck…or the other side of Texas. 🙂

    • Eddie: Got’em on order, digging around here looking for anything I can sell when I get to town before I go get them installed. I’m thinking my ass isn’t worth much, but one of my fixtures might still be spliced in somewhere for the right person on the transplant waiting list if he’s not picky. Gracias, J

  8. Oh.. and I forgot to say….

    If you follow the tenants and learn the rights of a devoted Moon Worshiper…. With each instance if Moon following.. you will get a ticket for a upgrade to a 50 amp site with shade trees… in that Great Moonie RV park in the sky. The closer you follow the Moon way the more raffle tickets you get. See ya in the afterlife at a premo 50 amp site… with big old shade trees. And that is not all….. free 16.5X75S tires for the old wagon iffn you want to travel to other Moon God facilities within our known universe.

    Maybe following that old Sun has left you wanting?

    Get in the groove and follow me there… Brother.

    • Eddie: Likely if I get within striking distance there’ll be water running into that dried out old septic tank bringing new life to the saprophytes living an abandoned, weary existence there. A mission of mercy with spinoff rewards of feasting my aging specs on your lovely wife, sparring with you in conversation, listening to your Uncle’s current wonderings, and sipping buttermilk for strength. As nearly as I can tell though, amigo, there’s no free lunch, no free tires in this Universe. Old Sol even tries to assure there are not cheap, used ones with any life left in them. Gracias, Jack
