Maybe 10 years ago, I read of a black fellow in Texas, who was a personality of some kind, saying something like, "Going to church has as much chance of making you a Christian as sitting in your car in your garage has of making you an automobile."
While I suppose as many Democrats that I know, as Republicans, say they are Christians, I seldom hear Democrats speak about Jesus, God or the Bible, while I hear a great deal about Jesus, God and the Bible from some, but not all, Republicans. I see the same dynamic on Facebook and in news media reports.
It has been my personal experience, and I have heard and read it many times, that people who claim to be righteous, say they are on God's side and God is on their side, are judged far more exacting by God, than people who do not make such claims.
In that vein, consider the "one nation under God" part of the American Pledge of Allegiance.
Replying to the recent Liz Cheney spoke for God and country last night post, a red-spectrum former prosecutor Christian asked me, "Where did she say anything about God?" I replied, "When she said she sided with the truth."
In the Gospels, Jesus told his disciples, if they abided in his word, they were truly his disciples, and they would come to know the truth and the truth would set them free.
Jesus's said in the Gospels, "Hypocrite, first take the beam out of your own eye and then you will see clearly enough to take the speck out of your brother's eye."
Jesus taught people to look in the mirror, deal with their own reflection. That was not a new philosophy. It had been around for a very long time. It was never popular. Jesus resurrected it for a while.
My dreamer friend, who makes somewhat frequent appearances in posts at this blog, and I are routinely taken to task by angels carrying names known in the Bible. I don't hear Republicans or Democrats say that is happening to them.
A blue-spectrum Christian replied to "Jesus called Satan the Father of Lies" sentence in yesterday's demon-assisted ascendency of Donald Trump and MAGA Party:
Jesus is the son of God!
Trump is the son of the Devil!!!
In fact, all human beings are sons and daughters of God, and the difference between them and an avatar such Jesus, for example, is he knew what he was and they don't know what they are.
My dreamer friend and I were taught by our angel handlers that, while incarnated on this world, human souls evolve, devolve, or tread water. After leaving this life, those souls have a life review, in which they fully participate without any buffers. After which, those souls participate in choosing their next incarnation on this world, on another world, in another dimension.
As for the so-called heresy called reincarnation ...
In the Gospels, the disciples asked Jesus if Elijah had returned? Jesus said, yes, but he was not recognized, and they understood he spoke to them of John the Baptist.
In another passage, Jesus restored the sight of a man who had been born blind. A disciple later asked Jesus, who had sinned, the man or his parents, that he was born blind? The question directly addressed the sins of the parents and reincarnation. Jesus said it was neither. The man was born blind so his sight could be restored and the glory of God made manifest.
Jesus did not scold the disciple for his question.
Had not Jesus said, before Abraham, he was?
Had not Jesus told his disciples that he had other flocks of which they knew not?
Eastern and many aborigine religions took reincarnation for granted. The Abrahamic religions made reincarnation a heresy without any evidence.
As for what might lie ahead for humanity, Armageddon, or whatever ...
My dreamer friend asked me yesterday afternoon what kind of response there was to yesterday's demon-assisted ascendency of Donald Trump and MAGA Party post?
I said the silence was deafening.
He asked what I made of that?
I said people either think I'm nuts and there is no point in discussing such a thing with me; or they can't comprehend a demon took over Hitler and his top aides and Germany, and same has happened to Donald Trump and his top aides and what now is his party; or they simply don't want to hear about it. And, it's very bad, what has happened to the Republican Party.
My friend said later yesterday that he was told by Archangel Michael in a nap dream, that there has been so much mass demonic possession and mass insanity in America, and around the rest of the world, that God has given up on humanity and it has about 100 years left.
I said he had reported Melchizedek telling him about a week prior that humanity had messed so bad that it has about 100 years left, and archeologists of the next sentient species on this planet will sift through the remains of humanity trying to figure out what happened to it.
