Heaven Can Wait II, The New Jerusalem

There is a popular “Christian” sentiment that "Heaven is wherever Christ is." This is tied into the belief that Heaven is the eternal dwelling place for those who died as believers. But the idea that Heaven is wherever Christ is, no matter how well intentioned, is not theologically accurate. For if this sentiment is a verity, then it opens up all sort of debate akin to how many angels can dance on the head of a pin. To wit, was Heaven on Earth during Christ's ministry, and not "in Heaven?" And if Heaven is wherever Christ is, where does that leave our Father and everyone else when Christ is on Earth? For as Christ said, "Where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them." Does this mean that the harp playing angels, and all the folks who died and "went to Heaven" are traveling around to meetings with Christ? If this isn't the case, then how can we say, "Heaven is wherever Christ is too?"

Christ's Return, The Hijacked Elephant

The Day of Trumpets, which heralds the beginning of the new civil year, in its duality marks the second coming of Jesus Christ. It is the day that Christians, unknowingly, have been looking forward to for millennia. And it was a high holy day that was observed millennia before that by the children of Israel. It's all part of the same story, just the circumstances of its characters have changed.

Why Do We Believe The Lies?

We live in a society in which lies, and the duplicity of wars are homogenized. Mass corporate media spoon feeds us this scripted ignorance proffered as information. Knowledge is reduced to propagandistic sound bites and talking points, taking the place of balanced, rational thought. National myths and bogeymen are created for the express purpose of centralizing power in the hands of the few through fear much like 1930's Germany. Yet, when a word of contrary truth is uttered to the masses, the machinery of corporate media and government political forces rail against it as if it were some grotesque malignancy in need of immediate extermination. Inevitably, we are showered with legions of lies, like so much confetti at a NYC Wall Street parade. Big Brother deems this incessant lying, and lying about their lying, as necessary for our own good in our society increasingly absent the rule of law. In its place, we have the rule of double-dealing elites in a shell game writ large, for whom the light of the truth is a dark abomination. Yet, the Biblical record's prophecies tell us our apathetic lack of love for the truth of the word of God translates into our believing their lies. What are we to do?
