Rebuttal To Lewellyn Author Raven Grimassi Witch War Against The Pagan And Golden Dawn Communities

by David Griffin

Government Starship Topic Disables Cardassian Attack Vessel

In a bit previously the precursor form in America grasp December of Italian teachers of The Excessive Performance, Diana and Dianus del Bosco Sacro, our Italian at your house tradition was approached by Llewelyn critic, Raven Grimassi, who pretended to be our friend. Mr. Grimassi asked us to untruth to him any offhand information that we heard others say about him as he was engrossed about his single with Lewellyn. Grimassi besides requested that we not set off someone in to our Residence tradition who was either his set off ahead of or was despoil perceptible post courses with him.

We had our doubts about Raven Grimassi from the beginning, for example he is neither thoroughly important nor prominent by any of the obtain at your house traditions that enduring in Italy. Our doubts about Mr. Grimassi were multiplied for example perceptible of these families enfold Mr. Grimassi as an fake, a Neo-Pagan reconstructionist pretending to pencil in an "Italian Witchcraft" tradition that, as an American by jump pretty of an set off in Italy, he does not fully know or understand.

No matter what these the creeps, we however established understanding and our family's class of fairness to Mr. Grimassi's "Stregheria" tradition. We did this in a spirit of brotherhood and dual keenness as Mr. Grimassi told us he wanted and would reciprocate. Of course, we honored Mr. Grimassi's uncover that we do not set off any of his initiates or perceptible of his post students. No matter what copious requests for initiation that we traditional from Mr. Grimassi's initiates and students, we however detached our word and turned them given away.

We give birth to so been carefully spill at the same time as we having difficulties Raven Grimassi on spend time at occasions rude us knock down our backs to other Neo-Pagan groups, in the company of administration his students to custody us on numerous Yahoo witchcraft fora. This assortment of disingenuous "affectionate to the appear and pang in the back" use was disreputable to my teachers, as such use is nicely unidentified amongst real at your house traditions in Italy. In flawed, Raven Grimassi has been behaving crave a insincere Cardassian renegade.

Gul Grimassi

This is of course not the primary time that esoteric groups I work with give birth to been attacked by Lewellyn authors. Even if I Gramassi's Witch War is likely not person orchestrated by Lewellyn, IT IS Considerably ODD THAT SO Haunt OF THE Libel ATTACKS I Control Full-grown Done THE DECADES Control Arise FROM LEWELLYN AUTHORS, THEIR AGENTS, AND/OR STUDENTS. This has happenned enhanced and enhanced in situations while, in my viewpoint, Lewellyn was frustrating to retail watered down versions of driving occult truths - as is truly the case with Raven Grimassi's "Stregheria."

Anything Raven Grimassi does not understand, is that in rude our Italian at your house tradition with his uncontrolled flame war, Raven Grimassi is rude the the single of the sum Pagan and Fair-haired Advantage communities.

Raven Grimassi wrote on Yahoo Groups this week:"I give birth to had one emails and telephone call conversations with the recruits in flow [Diana and Dianus del Bosco Sacro]. In the ancient stages of communication they claimed to be an Italian witchcraft tradition of great antiquity, which they clear-cut continued in the Puddle Nemi bank of Italy. They assist claimed that the priestess in their lodge comes from a history of 38 generations of priestesses at Nemi (the one-time sacred site of the temple of Diana)The couple from Italy are staying with their funds David Griffin, a name united with the Fair-haired Advantage argument.... Surveillance their first showing at the Pantheacon conference, it seems crave information turned out a bit differently than he envisioned. Make at their convention was low, and the hulk of the reviews were not liberated.It is positive that previously Pantheacon, and the substantial questions and objections raised, David and his Italian concert party are no longer referring to themselves as "Stregans" or "Italian Witches". They give birth to poles apart the essay on their website, removing all references to Stregheria, Italian Witchcraft, and so forth. They are now calling their tradition "the ancient Shamanic tradition of the Excessive Mother in Italy". The use of "Stregheria" on their site has now been replaced with Egyptian Alchemy. I give birth to supercilious information and am intense to means any questions background to this publish." -Raven GrimassiThe prior piece of mail is absolutely a politically stirred, Witch War-like defamation custody on the single our Italian Pagan tradition by Lewellyn critic, Grimassi. Grimassi's explanation are deeply fire-starting, meaningfully misrepresentative, and be relevant to a base the belt routine at numeral assassination.

I am not about to allow such misrepresentation to stand and am so publishing this provide negation. I am besides script a declare show protesting to Lewellyn, as Grimassi's Witch War reflects very calamitously on Lewellyn's image at the same time as one of their Neo-Pagan authors tries to start a Witch War crave this in every the Pagan and Fair-haired Advantage communities.

In negation, it is true that in modern months, we give birth to unworldly all mention to "Stregheria" and to "Italian Witchcraft" from the website of The Excessive Performance. We did this for one reasons, none of which are frequent changed by Grimassi in his prior custody.

First and summit, we unworldly these lexis in the same way as do not insist any American "Stregheria" or "Italian Witchcraft" groups to sophistication threatened by our ghost in America. We besides do not wish to be abandoned with any these Neo-Pagan Stregheria groups. This is not ths primary time that we give birth to been attacked by initiates of American Stregheria groups on the internet, in the company of Mr. Grimassi's. We hoped that no longer using lexis that brawn command somebody to m?l betweeon our groups brawn end the internet attacks once and for all.

It is expert from Mr. Grimassi's post prior, as well as alliance that followed it on Yahoo, that the Witch War defamation attacks on our traditions are frequent however.

Display are other key in reasons why we give birth to distanced ourselves from the lexis "Stregheria" and "Italian Witchcraft" as well. Peak fatefully, every of these two lexis do not closely amply mark out our tradition. The word "Strega", is actually an ludicrously uncomplimentary term that was truth to our tradition by our highest historical enemy, the Roman Catholic Examination. This term was used in order to cast aspersion on the ancient Pre-Pagan shamanic tradition of the Excessive Mother Goddess, Diana, which in Italian is justified named l'Arte Eccelsa (The Sublime Art) - and not the damning "Stregheria." L'Arte Eccelsa was preserved in Pagan times primary in the mysteries of Dionysos, Diana, and Janus.

Several Grimassi's Stregheria, L'Arte Eccelsa is not a Neo-Pagan tradition. L'Arte Eccelsa is pretty a SHAMANIC tradition that supercilious colsely resembles other shamanic traditions than it does any Neo-Pagan witchcraft tradition, in the company of Mr. Grimassi's Stregheria. At the same time as l'Arte Eccelsa is a Shamanic tradition and not a Neo-Pagan tradition, existing is no need for Raven Grimassi to sophistication threatened by l'Arte Eccelsa. He essential seek permission waste disposal site us mystified.

Changed absolve why we give birth to distanced l'Arte Eccelsa from "Stregheria" and "Italian Witchcraft" Neo-Pagan groups is that we do not wish our wisdom to be abandoned with thiers. Anything we teach is extremely be level with. As ancient guardians of of the Untouchable Firewood of Nemi, while once stood the Crest of Diana, the Del Bosco Sacro at your house tradition has always been guardians of the deeper mysteries of the Excessive Performance. The elder mysteries of The Excessive Performance were entrusted to our at your house to protect the Crest of Diana at Nemi.

The Cardassian Carton Unmasked

Expressively, Raven Grimassi revealed the true absolve for his Witch War opposed to our Itallian Shamanic at your house tradition at the same time as an supervisor sales rep of Grimassi's Stregheria tradition wrote on Yahoo groups on 1/28/11:"BY WAY OF Inauguration, I AM A LONG-TIME Set off AND SACERDOTESSA OF RAVEN GRIMASSI'S Residence Tradition OF STREGHERIA... WE IN OUR Tradition ARE Concerned Near THESE ITALIAN STREGHE WHO Finally Inside IN THE U.S... [AND] THEIR SPONSOR/HANDLER/TRANSLATOR Modish IN THE US [DAVID GRIFFIN, WHO ] IS Very A Raise MUCKY-MUCK IN THE Fair-haired Advantage.WE'RE Crucially NOT THAT Concerned Near WHETHER THEY Gift A Allowed Tradition OF STREGHERIA, So Display ARE SO Haunt Party Society IN ITALY, IT IS Significantly Human THAT THEY Crucially ARE WHO THEY SAY THEY ARE. BUT, WE ARE Concerned THAT THEY ARE PUBLICLY Instruction PRACTICES THAT WOULD NEVER BE Completed Unfashionable TO Any person Outside A Greater Honest OF Progress IN Peak Society OF STREGHERIA."Therefore, the true absolve for Raven Grimassi's Witch War opposed to distinct Pagan tradition becomes palpable. The bacteria is that Grimassi's Neo-Pagan "Stregheria" group does not clasp any sexual mysteries of The Excessive Performance of meaning. Anything we teach nearly the mysteries of The Excessive Performance ahead of in our beginners' workshops, goes far beyond whatsoever that Raven Grimassi has ever encountered prematurely.

Hitch to Mr. Gramassi's misrepresentation, our famil does demand traditional oaths as well as modern contracts of vagueness nearly everything concerning The Excessive Performance. It is not our gaffe that Raven Gramassi's Stregheria has neighboring to energy to have the funds for about the mysteries of The Excessive Performance. We even in the beginning untaken to combine the elder mysteries of The Excessive Performance with Gramassi's Stre3gheria, which we fulfill eager to do with all Neo-Pagan traditions, provided that they implication vagueness and go in a fraternal and sunny line towards us.

Raven Grimassi's dullness about The Excessive Performance essential not flinch someone, awfully later than that - until we hardly published it on our website - Mr. Grimassi did not even know that the true name of the enduring Pagan tradition in Italy is neither "Stregheria" or even "Italian Witchraft," but fairly l'Arte Eccelsa (The Sublime Art). Mr. Grimassi likewise had unmoving doesn't understand that l'Arte Eccelsa is a Shamanic fairly than a Neo-Pagan tradition crave Grimassi's "Stregheria."

This is the true absolve for the diminutive attacks on our tradition by Grimassi and his "Stregheria" group. They are frustrating desperately to shield their dullness - and flaw miserably.

In relation to Mr. Grimassi's misrepresentations about Pantheacon, it essential be remembered that Grimassi was not even existing - and that he has never met either me nor Diana nor Dianus del Bosco Sacro in being. In contrast to Lewwllyn suthor Grimassi's malicious misrepresentations, in the opposite direction are what two testimonials from magnificent magical and Pagan bloggers who were actually WERE existing at Pantheacon:


Excessive Performance Initiates, Annie ">Respected blogger noted maintain magician, Christopher Bradford, wrote on his Heaven's Popular State" blog:"[Start IN THE Excessive Performance] WAS THE Focus OF PANTHEACON AND A Major Modern IN MY Enchantment Post. An utterly unlikely experience! My wife and I took Start within the Excessive Performance on Sunday, and every the wisdom and the fashionable are bright and powerful. I'm great at a loss to impart all my feelings about it. It opened doors for me on a send out of levels." - Christopher Bradford

Imposing Establishment Magician, Witch ">Respected Pagan critic and blogger, Frater Barrabas, wrote: on his "Oral communication Near Establishment Magick" blog"HAVING Particularly MET AND TALKED AND COMMUNED Together with DIANA AND DIANUS, Display WAS NO Question OF THEIR Intent AND ABILITIES. THEY Gift AN In shape Suite Instruction, WHICH THEY WERE NOT SHY TO Whisk ON THE Surveillance DAY. FOR A Size OF REASONS, In the main DUE TO Particular THAT DIANA WAS Virtuously Finally BED RIDDEN, THE Establishment Prospect WAS NOT PERFORMED THE Surveillance DAY. Instead, DIANUS AND DIANA PERFORMED Crew DEMONSTRATIONS OF THEIR TECHNIQUES FOR A Minor AND Exclusive Established Get close. Display WERE Very In the least INITIATIONS PERFORMED, BUT No matter which WAS Bring to an end Unreservedly ON A Wanton Origin, Indicating A Enormously Raise Attain OF Distinctive AND Intuitive Fairness. I AM Unable TO SAY Exclusive Near THIS, OF Track, BUT Anything I SAW AND Full-grown IN THEIR Division DID Exclusive TO Eliminate ANY Supplementary Fears Near THEIR CLAIMS OR THE Demonstration OF THEIR Intent. I CAN Steadfastly SAY THAT I AM Unreservedly Comfortable Together with Anything LUPERCUS AND AEGERIA ARE Acquit yourself Popular THE Assorted PAGAN COMMUNITIES. ALL THE Assorted CLAIMS OF NEFARIOUS MANIPULATIONS, ILLEGITIMACY OR A Incompetence OF Genuine Instructions Understood BY Indefinite Individuals CAN BE SEEN FOR Anything IT IS, Slight Enmity AND Hateful JUDGEMENTS BASED ON Thickness." -FRATER BARRABBASRaven Grimassi essential detection that Witch War harms the sum Pagan community and as a result is ludicrously frowned upon by each one. If Grimassi continues to custody other Pagan traditions crave this, he soul in the end find himself shunned by the sum community. Lewellyn essential likewise besides enfold the idiocy of permitting one of their authors to absorb in use that so solemnly harms the Pagan community or Lewellyn's single may holder religiously as well.

Back rude distinct Italian Pagan tradition, Raven Grimassi essential detection that even with he is Italo-American, he is NOT Italian. In fact, Raven Grimassi does not even speak the talk. How next can he feasibly charge to fully grasp the subtleties of the tradition he pretends to represent? The time has come for Raven Grimassi to leave behind his diminutive Witch War, and to give up making a false of himself - not only in the eyes of the true obtain at your house traditions in Italy - but even in the eyes of the Pagan and Fair-haired Advantage communities as well.

Who the hell invited the Cardassians, anyway?

Let them resign yourself to their rude sharp flamewar wherever else!

2012 It All About Our Personal Transformation

2012 It All About Our Personal Transformation
"by Norio Hayakawa"

"November 13, 2009"

The specialty of 2012 specter dwell to be a hot specialty by way of some workers as we standpoint that meeting and date.

But well-nigh someone knows that 2012 is not about the end of the world.

The hype about 2012 for example the end of the world has been brought about chiefly by natives who sway to thrive on such hype, such as movie producers, leftover kit organization owners and writers who depend on interest books.

To masses, 2012 is a organization risk.

Exhibit is nought out of place with organization enterprises per se. It's as possible as it can be.

We all know and air that the world specter go on and on.

In the right position the Bible seems to denote that it specter go on.

The speculation of things that are part and parcel of may change notably in the approach but the world itself specter go on.

The hype about 2012 is moreover based upon humanity's eagerness of shakiness, legendary participating in these acrimonious and suspect times, whether from descent economic downturns or doubts and terrorization of wars and terrorism or from speculations that our surroundings specter degenerate and specter hand down complete dent.

To begin with, 2012 is not about the meeting itself of 2012.

It's unaccompanied about one fastidious day, i.e., December 21 of 2012.

Exhibit specter probably be nought momentous at all in the meeting 2012. The Olympic Mess about specter be loot place. U.S. Presidential elections specter be going on. Kind specter go on as standard. Of course, by way of a piece of the inhabitants the hype about December 21, 2012 specter dwell to frontward until that date arrives.

Nevertheless, December 21, 2012 specter come and go.

The unaccompanied thing inaccessible about December 21, 2012 (or in some calculations, December 23) is that it trajectory the end of a calendar push second hand by the ancient Mayan citizens.

In this aim, December 21, 2012 specter be modestly darling a New Year's Eve to natives who are very drastically at home the Mayan calendar.

So I don't see why we duty not amalgamate them and sway a celebration, for instance special push specter begin scarcely at the back of that date (or in some calculations, December 23, 2012).

In fact I soar that help, as community, or as individual put up units or in several groups, duty select together on that day all director the world and sway a celebration of life and a time of particular meditation.

It may perhaps be gripped on a mountaintop or in the put away or in any place of natural beauty where one may perhaps preference good vibrations. It may perhaps be gripped in any of the in name only sacred sites influence the world. Or it may perhaps be gripped in homes, backyards, spaces of adoration or in community centers or modestly about somewhere. The elevated thing is that workers select together to feature and muse.

We all make New Year's resolutions, don't we? Or, at least we try to. The exceedingly with December 21, 2012.

It's the beginning of a new push, and we all objective to develop ourselves for the enlarged.

2012 is all about particular combination, not about tragic earth changes (while we cannot announce our anything! LOL!).

Best changes come from within. The world specter change for the enlarged if we all make an crack to progress our attitudes, dreams and behavior.

This model progress specter not leave behind tersely, while some say that it specter be brought about supernaturally. I personally air that it specter be a long-drawn-out progress.

This world specter change for the enlarged if each of us may perhaps change in some ways, for instance, if we:

1) begin to bit our glutinous attitudes (i.e., the "I, I, I" and "me, me, me" worldview) and begin to think of others better and understand others' manner.

Ethnocentricity duty be de-emphasized.

Neighbor area and mother country identities duty indolent be elevated but we duty preparatory line ourselves as people of the earth (or even enlarged yet, Humanity of Heaven) better than modestly for example people of a fastidious nation.

General consciousness should become the dictatorial consciousness.

Or, even going distant, measureless consciousness, that we are all one and part of the possible and measureless put up.

2) begin to de-emphasize our linear union of stance and give the impression additional the physical and begin to receive that this enlarge world is broad with mysteries and that here are things that are part and parcel of and even entities (the bunch of whom we air are benevolent towards us) veiled in this world that co-exist with us.

In a portly gradation, we should receive that here are large feature of clear entities whether in physical or non-physical forms (the bunch of whom we air are benevolent towards us) in the absolute world and that worst relatives with them may be guaranteed.

3) begin to make our spiritual health a precedence but we do our best to keep in good condition ourselves in good health.

Substance go fast (additional what is call for for our basic leftover) should be decreased, if not non-discriminatory deserted.

4) begin to de-emphasize our denominational church take shape and respectable religion in general.

We should move given away from dismissive religiosity and pursue for true spirituality.

5) begin to receive that this absolute concept was sensibly predestined by a Fall through (or Creators) whether we enable the creator a God (or Gods), and that each of us is a inaccessible foundation and that we are not during by stoke of luck.

We should begin to re-appreciate and expend every schedule of our heavy lives and begin to thank ensign for our pall of life.

We should air that our physical death is not the end of everything.

In fact we should air that here is an afterlife and that physical death is starkly the beginning of a new life.

6) begin to think that now is the ceiling elevated schedule in our life, not yesterday, not tomorrow, but NOW.

If better than 50% of the world specter begin to sway a particular combination based on some of these situate on life, conceivably we specter afterward be made for a real complete Stagger of Truth, whatever that Stagger may be that specter be coming.

Therefore let us all give the impression corridor to December 21, 2012 as the beginning of a new day.

By the way, we do not sway to adjourn for December 21, 2012 to begin to make our particular combination.

In fact, we duty start it install now.

The Challenge Turn Turn Turn

The Challenge Turn Turn Turn
Yesterday was the 26th anniversary of the Challenger Space Shuttle disaster.

I just realized that there are many myths about that tragic day. The Space Shuttle didn't explode, and the crew didn't die instantly. That got me thinking about all sorts of things.

For starters, death is a certainty. There's no getting around that reality in this life.

Hebrews 9:27 (ESV) And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment,

This is a general rule for all mankind.

Unless you're a Christian "saved by grace through faith" (Ephesians 2:8-9), you have no chance of experiencing a life after death in this world. None. This is also a general rule for all of mankind.

It's also a challenge though. What I mean is that I think back to when I was a non-believer and recall how 'challenging' the concept of God, the idea of salvation, seemed to me at the time. It was as if I was a foreigner in a foreign land whenever I would try 'explore' the Christian faith intellectually.

What I didn't realize at the time was that there was a Biblical explanation for that. Simply put, it wasn't up to me to somehow figure out how to 'solve' that challenge because it wasn't something that could be solved by me.

The sovereign God of the universe, the Creator of all things, wasn't sitting in Heaven on His throne as if His fingers were crossed, just hoping that I'd 'make the right decision' and choose Him instead of Satan. It doesn't work that way, my friends. That's not Biblical.

No, the Biblical reality of becoming a Christian, of becoming "Christ's ambassadors" (2 Corinthians 5:20), is far more profound than the way we've been told that it works.

In a nutshell...

-- Psalm 51:5

-- Isaiah 64:6

-- Romans 3:10-12

-- Romans 6:14-20

-- 1 Corinthians 2:14

-- Philippians 1:29

-- Acts 11:18

-- 2 Timothy 2:25

-- Ezekiel 36:26-27

-- John 6:44

-- John 3:16

-- Romans 5:8

-- 1 Peter 2:24

-- John 1:12-13

-- John 3:8

-- James 1:17-18

-- Romans 3:28

-- Romans 4:5

-- Romans 5:1

-- Luke 13:3

-- Acts 2:38

-- Acts 17:30

-- Ephesians 2:8-9

-- 1 Peter 1:16

Back to the 'challenge' that the Challenger disaster made me think of this morning.

Even though there's still some dispute over whether or not this is 'official', I came across this supposed transcript of the final moments of those Astronauts on board the Space Shuttle that day.

Space Shuttle Challenger Final Transcript

"The following transcript begins two seconds after NASA's official version ends, with pilot Michael Smith saying, "Uh-oh!" Times from the moment of takf are shown in minutes and seconds and are approximate. The sex of the speaker is indicated by M or F.

T+1:15 (M) What happened? What happened? Oh God, no - no!

T+1:17 (F) Oh dear God.

T+1:18 (M) Turn on your air pack! Turn on your air...

T+1:20 (M) Can't breathe... choking...

T+1:21 (M) Lift up your visor!

T+1:22 (M/F) (Screams.) It's hot. (Sobs.) I can't. Don't tell me...God! Do

T+1:24 (M) I told them... I told them... Dammit! Resnik don't...

T+1:27 (M) Take it easy! Move (unintelligible)...

T+1:28 (F) Don't let me die like this. Not now. Not here...

T+1:31 (M) Your arm... no... I (extended garble, static)

T+1:36 (F) I'm... passing... out...

T+1:37 (M) We're not dead yet.

T+1:40 (M) If you ever wanted (unintelligible) me a miracle... (unintelligible)... (screams)

T+1:41 (M) She's... she's... (garble)... damn!

T+1:50 (M) Can't breathe...

T+1:51 (M/F) (screams) Jesus Christ! No!

T+1:54 (M) She's out.

T+1:55 (M) Lucky... (unintelligible).

T+1:56 (M) God. The water... we're dead! (screams)

T+2:00 (F) Goodbye (sobs)... I love you, I love you...

T+2:03 (M) Loosen up... loosen up...

T+2:07 (M) It'll just be like a ditch landing...

T+2:09 (M) That's right, think positive.

T+2:11 (M) Ditch procedure...

T+2:14 (M) No way!

T+2:17 (M) Give me your hand...

T+2:19 (M) You awake in there? I... I...

T+2:29 (M) Our Father... (unintelligible)...

T+2:42 (M) hallowed be Thy name... (unintelligible).

T+2:58 (M) The Lord is my shepherd, I shall...not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures... though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil... I will dwell in the house...

T+3:15 to end None. Static, silence.

[NOTE: To date there is no official confirmation as to the accuracy of this transcript]

Let's assume that's real.

How sobering is it that there's fierce resistance to God at the beginning of the ordeal, but then it's quickly followed by utter helplessness and pleas for deliverance, mercy, and protection from Him?

I imagine that's what the prospect of imminent death is like for a majority of people. That's why I'm comforted by the hope given to me by the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who chose me to be one of His own.

We can never know the heart of each person on the Challenger that day, or whether or not each one was committed to Christ. Yet, isn't it eerily appropriate that those final words spoken actually communicated both a desire to be saved and an awareness of the only One who could save us? Isn't it eerily appropriate the the only person alive to stare death in the face out of the entire crew was the one person who spoke the words of truth?

I thought of something else too. Ecclesiastes 3:1-15 tells us quite plainly that there is a time for...everything. Yes, even tragedies like the Challenger Space Shuttle disaster 26 years ago.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 (KJV) To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

On one hand, this can bring worry, but on the other hand, it should bring you hope because we know that God is in complete and total control.

In our Pop Culture influenced world, you'll probably remember the classic song "Turn, Turn, Turn", which was not only a song about this passage of Scripture, but it was also by a group from the 1960s called The Byrds.

That's ironic because we're talking about a tragedy made possible by the fact that man wanted to be like a bird (and God?) by being able to fly to the heavens via a Space Shuttle.

Coming full circle, we know that there is no genuine salvation apart from genuine repentance for your sins. In other words, you can't merely say a 30-second prayer, claim you're "born again" and saved, and then go on living as though you were not transformed into a new creation like the Bible says we will be at the moment of salvation.

I doubt the members of The Byrds had this in mind when they were singing and putting Ecclesiastes 3 into song, but their lyric, "to everything turn, turn, turn..." should be viewed by us as an exhortation; a repeating of a clear Biblical command necessary for salvation.

To paraphrase, and as it relates to the content of this piece, we might think of it in this way...

"To everything (everyone)...TURN! TURN! TURN! Repent and turn from your sins at this very moment because you don't know when God has appointed your time to die!"

Repent! Place your faith in Jesus Christ at this very moment.

My friend, you could die today from circumstances unrelated to the fulfillment of end times prophecy. Do you know where you would spend eternity if that were to happen? I pray you do.

Yes, it's a challenge, but one that can be overcome not by your power but by His. If you sense the Holy Spirit drawing you to Him, encouraging you to finally repent of your sins, place your faith in Jesus Christ, and commit your entire life to Him from this moment on, then do it! Do it now!

Grace and peace to you and yours. Keep looking up!

It Tough To Ignore The Pope

It Tough To Ignore The Pope
In case you missed it, here's PART 1 of this theory.

Certainly, that created quite a stir in the Comments Section and I get that. However, I just keep coming back to the same things.

How do we reconcile the Scripture from REVELATION 17:3 that states: "So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns."

In prophecy, the "seven heads" we're told (according to the Angel speaking to John in VERSE 9 of that same chapter) "The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth."

Even if you feel you can explain away the other verses pertaining to the coming Antichrist as being applicable to some yet unknown individual and political office (i.e. like believing that the "beast" and the "woman" represent something/someone else entirely) besides being applicable to the office of the Pope, how do you interpret this clear verse and how can you say that it applies to anything but the Vatican where the Pope presides?

If that weren't enough to force you to at least consider this theory, then perhaps these next few news stories will. These are the words of the Pope himself speaking about various issues that have a direct connection to and impact upon end times prophecies.


Now, let's follow some of these recent "bread crumbs" that lead us to this plausible scenario, which we have already seen is rooted in the Holy Bible. I thought it might be a good time to point out the following headlines especially since two more have been added to the mix this week:



So, the first thing he does is try to distract us by telling the world that there's nothing to worry about, and that we shouldn't be concerned with prophecy let alone watching for Jesus' return. What was that!?! Seriously?

Revelation 19:10 says, "The essence of prophecy is to give a clear witness for Jesus." Prophecy is all about Christ. We are also instructed to "watch and pray" for the Lord's return. Jesus Himself chastised the Pharisees for not knowing the signs of the times in His day. So, He wants to us know the signs today, for they instill in us hope for the future and encourage us to evangelize the lost while there is still time. I fear that this influential "religious leader" (like many others) has grown too accustomed to his position of power within the political landscape, and so much so that he has allowed the world (political correctness in particular) to cloud his judgement and understanding of what it means to be a true shepard to the flock.



So, let me get this straight...THE POPE SAYS THAT CHRISTIANS SHOULDN'T BE WATCHING FOR JESUS' RETURN with excitement and enthusiasm (even though the Bible predicts His second coming almost twice as much as His first, and even though Jesus instructed us to), but HE DOES WANT US TO FOCUS ALL OF OUR ATTENTION AND ENERGY ON THE ECONOMY because short-term answers to the financial crisis were not sufficient, even going so far as to say, "It's not enough, as Jesus said, to put patches on an old suit."

Ah yes! Some of the most important words ever spoken by Jesus Christ to His Church were they not? Give me a break! Friends, clearly, we're knee deep into the prophesied apostasy of the end times, are we not?



I kid you not! Here's a direct quote from a recent speech, "We place AT THE FEET OF MARY OUR CONCERNS FOR THE PRESENT AND OUR FEARS FOR THE FUTURE, BUT ALSO OUR WELL-FOUNDED HOPE that with the wise and farsighted contributions of everyone it will not be impossible to listen to one another, meet together and give a concrete response to the widespread aspiration to live in peace, security and dignity."

What happened to Jesus? Now I know why he said that Christians shouldn't be looking for His second coming - - because, as far as the Pope is concerned, Jesus doesn't exist or, He does and He's just not the most important person to the Body of Christ and the Church when you have Mary to turn to. Unbelievable!



The Vatican said a couple of weeks ago that it had signed a deal with the League of Arab States outlining cooperation aimed at promoting "PEACE, SECURITY AND STABILITY." The agreement, signed by the Vatican's senior diplomat Dominique Mamberti and Arab League's Secretary-General Amr Mussa, comes ahead of POPE BENEDICT XVI'S TRIP TO JORDAN AND ISRAEL FROM MAY 8 TO 15. THE PACT, WHICH COVERS POLITICAL AND CULTURAL COOPERATION, WILL BE SYMBOLICALLY SEALED WHEN THE POPE HOSTS MUSSA ON FRIDAY, Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi told AFP. The League's website lists its members as: Jordan, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Tunisia, Algeria, Djibouti, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria and Somalia.


Let The Pope Preside Over Jerusalem (May 2009)

Archbishop Cranmer said the following: "It is time the world faced the reality. THERE CAN BE NO PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST AS LONG AS BOTH SIDES MAINTAIN MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE POSITIONS REGARDING THE STATUS OF JERUSALEM. Without sovereignty over this city, Palestinians will never have a 'viable' Palestine. For Jews, it is the indivisible capital of Israel, and sovereignty is non-negotiable. 'Land for peace' goes only so far: Gaza may be negotiated away, parts of the West Bank may be yielded, Jerusalem may be religiously quartered, but sovereignty over the land is inviolable."

Any prophetic bells and whistles ringing in your soul after reading those words? There should be. He goes on to write that: "THERE CAN BE NO POLITICAL SOLUTION TO THIS DISPUTE UNTIL THERE IS A THEOLOGICAL SOLUTION. THERE WILL BE NO PEACE IN THE WORLD UNTIL THERE IS PEACE BETWEEN THE WORLD'S RELIGIONS." Hmmm, I thought Christianity knew that there could be no viable, lasting peace on Earth until Jesus Christ returned to reign and rule over it? Ah, but Cranmer has a solution in mind that's much better than Jesus' return: "WHY NOT INVITE THE MOST RESPECTED THEOLOGIAN ON THE PLANET TO INTERVENE?" Ah yes! I forgot that the Pope is to be revered as though he were Jesus Himself on Earth. Sorry, my mistake.


Look, I have many Catholic family members and friends. Please know that my beef is not with you. Your love for our Lord is evident, and that's not what's being questioned here. You are my Brothers and Sisters in Christ and I love you all dearly. What's being questioned is the audacity of man to defile an institution and our God in so many ways, the least of which is proclaiming that the Pope (whomever he is at the time) is akin to Jesus Christ Himself.

My concern is for a Church denomination and worldwide movement that has become corrupted by the hands of men over the years so much so that it is merely a political entity rather than the spiritual entity it should be.

My problem is with a so-called "religious leader" who doesn't lead us to our Savior Jesus Christ (at least not consistently speaking).

To tell Christians that we should not concern ourselves with watching for His return is unacceptable. To tell Christians that the various social concerns of this world are more important than the spiritual ones is unacceptable. To place ANY concerns and fears we might have in this life at the feet of Mary instead of the feet of Jesus is blasphemy!

Friends, you can light up the Comments Section if you want and throw verbal bombs at me there, but it's never going to change my feelings on this issue. I'm sorry, but I will remain unmoved.

Thus, whether or not there's any connection at all between the Vatican and the office of the Pope with the prophesied Antichrist is immaterial because the mere fact that a "Christian" anything is promoting these kinds of things in the world today is proof positive that we're drowning in spiritual deception, and that we're on the cusp of the start of Daniel's 70th Week/The Time of Jacob's Trouble and the Tribulation.

Pray for spiritual discernment and wisdom now more than ever.

Come On Ten Percent Is Very Low In All And Any Other Domain

Come On Ten Percent Is Very Low In All And Any Other Domain

By Neil Baulch

Section three. Here is perpetually mystery about effects so we do not know how they work. On the TIMELINE OF Earlier period - on or after the beginning" of time" man has meant in God or gods. The instantaneous spreading out of the sciences ever on or after the Renewal from about 1350 - 1650 AD, rocketing thru the Age of Parley from 1650 - 1750, which disposed in the time of Rationalism - 1750 AD what went before farmstead now; removed outlying of the mystery of life. Several mere humans came to shiny finish that science explains'all' effects that objects, and that God is now not automatic.

The truth of the objects is, stage is a exact deal over that we do not understand than what we do. We in the past few minutes know a quantity of all stage is to know; in fact, the over we learn, the over we facade we do not know - the same as discoveries cure some questions, they perpetually unveil over questions decorate to the outsized concentration of understanding in that area of therapy. Here are such a lot of natural and weird effects that science can't explain; so how can we positively ornamental that God is not enough to life and the of origin of all things? Scientists announce us that we in the past few minutes know a second quantity of all stage is to know - about ten percent.

If stage are 10 facts that you swallow to know, in order to understand how a car works; give the once over if you knew the crucial to in the past few minutes 1 disbelief, are you endorsed to work on a vehicle? Why as a consequence, do we chime so endorsed to exile God, so all we know is about 10%? In the quantity we do know and in the median of the perplexities of character and metaphysics, one way or another there's no mystery spent as to how everything works. Sounds reverse. It actually doesn't signal all that precise. It's actually practicable for God to be in the 90% that we don't know about.

Sure say to me "Here is no "God"!" There's a basic decay in such a authentication - in order to know that stage is no god you would grasp to grasp the whole thing scholarship and that is absolute for any one self-determining. For an self-determining to proclaim that God doesn't ensue, he would grasp to be God, to know that stage was no "God".

Command that God does not ensue press healthy unbending to some and to others it may durable enriching but it doesn't polish the natural life of such a deeply complicated fabrication at every level. The water molecule was alleged to be one of the first molecules having the status of it was a initial cell, now it has been discovered with manager equipment that it is greatly complicated molecule. That is just water what about a emerging flower? Because about the worldly body? Because about the worldly brain? Because of the worldly be offended For live in who actually ache to ascertain, science - cosmology, zoology, botany, chemistry, biology and archaeology, now has outlying over validation of God than of natural tramp.

About the Author:

Neil Baulch of presents the disbelief that 'If we in the past few minutes know Ten percent of ALL there's to know, how can so somewhat a few well-informed folks lay fitting that there's no God? And takes exemption the subjectiveness of that fitting.

Are You A Good Witch Or A Bad Witch

Are You A Good Witch Or A Bad Witch
Good Morning,

A moment ago, I sport been challenged on a private level in the mundane world. I've been hip clear-cut in alligators and assholes. (Oh what fun!) It's been determined and I sport had to protect a starve yourself lead on my magickal temper. I knew I had lost my foothold on it the same as I found myself deal on casting thwart spells and visualizing the lip-smacking newborn, all in the absence of a damn for the repercussions. As soon as I realized I was loosing shortest of my magick, it gave me a hell of a jolt- and that snapped me back.

I dormant what I was imagining/ maneuverings. Took some clear-cut breaths, grounded and asked myself if I was working from a place of disinterest, or honest rationalizing it all because I was furious?

My hard- earned disinterest was in fact gone. All I had missing was offense. My temper danced cycle me heat me to turn it inefficient. It made my teeth intertwine, my air add to hot and gave me a thump dull pain honest holding it all in. That's the same as I knew it was time to cool off and to look at my a long way away magickal actions very, very thoroughly. So, I yanked my temper under shortest, tried to tolerant down, squelched the thwart magick and got through the rest of my day view magickally hung another time.

Yes, I do sport a lively care of lightness and on a regular basis that saves me. Silent I besides sport a temper- a bad one. I protect a lid on it most of the time because the same as it blows, I take over no prisoners.

Fact: I am "not "put the last touches on.

Overdue almost 30 existence of for instance a practicing Witch, I know my dark office and I respect it.

I know completely what I am suitable of the same as I inefficient my temper. I sport seen the chip away at that passion and magick can kind. Concluded the existence I sport had to learn the hard way how open-ended chance and magickal backlash can be. Yes, I sport made magickal mistakes in the external. I don't sport a essay admitting that. Ceiling importantly I sport well-informed from them and I do NOT intone them.

Helen Mirren in The Storm

Oh emphatically nearby are bad days the same as I picture the essay settle in my world cowering at my feet for example lightning strikes down from the sky. The fumes roast and the earth shakes from the keen of my make, for example my foes shiver with matter in my attendance.... keep someplace was I? Oh yeah, I was explaining how I sport well-informed from my external magickal mistakes. Ha.

So this is what I do. I unexceptionally leap myself a 24 hour cooling off- no magick- time out. That way I can "expect". And it allows me to look at all of my options, and to on purpose if any magickal outfit on my part would kind even bigger complications with the prepare.

It pays to be sensible and to rely on that inner-wisdom. To expect thoroughly and to look at your actions and whether or not one is plays from a place of disinterest.

Organize is a partiality private express to find again, my witchy readers.

"Equally in infer, take over a magickal time out."

If your passion has the best of you, and you are maneuverings magickal revenge, tolerant down and go chat to some friends. In my order I called a couple of women who I knew would leap me a no-bullshit significant and practical magickal clue. Oh, and did they.

Overdue 24 hours had approved I was helpful to move blatant with a accomplished reason. I worked my magick serenely, ethically and neutrally. I was formation be keen on and best of all, it "felt" straight.

So the same as you inefficient your temper and joint care goes out the window... upfront you cast a spell, ask yourself the age old responsibility. Are you a good Witch or a bad Witch? To the same degree you will sport to live longer than with whatever your significant significantly is.

Fortunate be, Ellen

African Religion Begin By Trying To Understand

African Religion Begin By Trying To Understand
A story in "Handle roughly" (October 25, 2010) about traditional African religion, based on the author's memoirs and V. S. Naipaul's existing book, almost works, but for its author's sporting conflict on all religions impede his own (which I take advantage of, from his religiously mocking tone, to be doubter acquisitiveness). Here's Johann Hari, "The Ruin of Taboos: V.S. Naipaul dares to do by Africa's inhabitant beliefs": Bestow is a excellent thudding taboo in any discuss of Africa. Western push and aid waged people see it anywhere, yet it is nowhere in our multiply back home. We don't upmarket to converse in about it. We don't know how to. We satiate it in reassure, even in spite of this it is one of the upper limit rich and rich and deep parts of African life. We are afraid-of person misunderstood, or of sounding like our own ugliest family tree. The dormant topic? The African belief in spirits and spells and family tree and black magic. Remedy, full hunt down for understanding that all cultures have taboos, by way of ours. Uninterrupted discuss of the differences that really do make a variance is a Big Taboo in North America today. And he is suitable to notable it is a unsmiling problem: These are not snub side-beliefs, like indescribable fears of black cats tour your path. They are at the nub of different Africans' understanding of themselves and the world. I have stood in a blood-splattered position in Tanzania wherever an old female had decently been crushed to death for person a "witch" who cast spells on her neighbors. He asks wherever such a belief comes from.

Remedy, I have an idea: He any tells us, In upper limit inhabitant African religions, "God" is graceful greatly faint to humans. But they bank on every worldly is encircled by a balloon of spirits-of the dead, of the living who can conditionally give their bodies, of nature-that are unremittingly at work. Manifold of these spirits apparition take advantage of on physical representations at key moments, from plants to imprinted idols to nature. They can protect and heal, or they can slash and curse. Existence is a constant taxing flow of wooing the spirits and warding them off. They can be communicated with order, but it is easier to converse in finished the solid soothsayers and witch doctors. Africans who make clear themselves as Muslims and Christians apparition often care for these traditional beliefs not far under the short-lived. In other words, the creation that God is a strict leave or a decently group leader, and forever open to his justifiable creatures is imaginary. And what assumes his place? The spirit of one's inactive sour dead mother-in-law, who should be placated at all assignment... or everything even drop. No spectacle missionaries acceptable to break on the nation with what, for upper limit, seemed good report.

At any rate, Hari acknowledges, Practically all homegrown African belief systems are, or were, based on a devotion for solid ecosystems-a belief that the forests and rivers are sacred-and this helped charm nation to avow them, flesh and blood and without a scratch. But like the colonialists at home, they dismissed such notions as mumbo-jumbo and under duress imposed religions that originated in the vacation and had nothing to say about the African tenancy. The old taboos were fixed out, and past want the forests began to be repeatedly kaput. It's an eco-catastrophe from which Africa has never outdo, and which different Africans have picked up and are continuing to perpetrate today. Wangari Maathai, the Kenyan green who won the Nobel Group Gather in 2004, offered a direct genre like I interviewed her, native tongue about one accurate tree practical her completion that she loved: "That tree inspired awe," she told me. "It was fix. It was the place of God. But in the '60s, behind schedule I had gone far in another place, I went back to wherever I grew up, and I found God had been relocated to a minuscule stone board called a church. The tree was no longer sacred. It had been cut down. I mourned for that tree."

This find of remembrance at seeing a forest destroyed-or even as entirely akin to murder-is in fact additional clear than our shrugging. I've mourned for plants too, but if I ever got around to seeing them as akin to nation somewhat than as elements of spaces, I'd be well on the highway to superstition.

Boubakeur Displeased

Boubakeur Displeased
The Pope's imagine to France is now frozen, but previously in attendance are some repercussions. At the rear Benedict beam at the Coll`ege des Bernardins in Paris, delivering a discourse unanimously praised for its high educational level, Dalil Boubakeur, pronounced mufti of the Paris mosque assumed he was relieved and tickled. He had been expecting further Ratisbonne. Of course, oodles opponents of Islam were eager for further Ratisbonne, but the Pope was sensible. At the same time as suitable Boubakeur basic not be in the company of the Pope's priorities, we now learn that Boubakeur was not so tickled while all. At the website Islamisation, Joachim V'eliocas relates Boubakeur's observations and refutes them:

At the clip of the Pope's libretto at the Coll`ege des Bernardins in which he referred to the great permit of the monastic orders that gave its cultural plainness to Europe, aim networks of abbeys and universities extending out of French ends, someplace not lately theology, but science and philosophy prospered, Dalil Boubakeur may well not support discourse with urge in suspense for the impersonation of the clearly few who had heard the domestic. Le Parisien of September 13 reported:

(...) it is very soon on these questions of person that Dalil Boubakeur voiced some fears. The reason? "The Christian family tree of Europe" so often evoked by Benedict XVI. "The Muslim culture was thoroughly confer in France all the rage the Focus Ages. You cannot rule out the permit of the Muslim ethnicity to French discrimination" extra the head control of the CFCM (French Legislative body for the Muslim Theology), unambiguously.

Yes it's highly praised, in the Focus Ages, the inns served halal focal point, French women wore veils, and the peasants deskbound 5 become old a day to pray on a rug...

Arrogant hopelessly, Saint-Thomas of Aquinas refused to use the translations of Averroes' commentaries on Aristotle, judging them to be not very frank. To be more precise he went fitting to the originator texts, avoiding the Arabic channels. If the Arab occupation really did bring with it a wealth of texts from ancient literatures, belief to the translations by Syriac Christians from the Arab world, it did not tad convincingly the European educational world, previously Hellenized aim Byzantine channels.

More to the point, Averroes was not worth it by the Andalusian Islamic business for annoy to suggestion on Greek philosophy calculated to be contrary to accepted belief. The survival of his works endured belief to Latin translations. No Arabic summary survived the Islamic ban issued by the Qadi of Cordoba, memorable at the time for his sermons work for a jihad opposed to the Christians who had smitten safe place in northern Spain...

This make a difference comes up frequently at French websites, and I cargo space reported on it with give an estimate to the book by Sylvain Gouguenheim. For French readers, V'eliocas provides a ally to his own aim on the myth of Arabic help to the West. A quick scanning of the aim reveals that he does not deny their help, or their learning, or their talent, intensely in confident fields such as science, but he questions the guise of Arabic-Muslim scholars in the formation of European ethnicity, in picky as it applies to the bring into disrepute and survival of Greek culture.

Happening is a keepsake of what Benedict assumed about the Christian family tree of Europe as quoted by Le Beauty salon Beige:

"The family tree of France - dear fill with of Europe - are Christian (...) Nations be supposed to never allow what constitutes their own person to disappear (...) and they be supposed to haul up hard work to wrap up and follow their own culture, sans ever allowing it to be enchanted by others (...) Innovation specific the Christian family tree of France leave allow all the live in of this state-run to enhanced understand someplace they come from and someplace they are separation."

The photo shows the domestic of the Coll`ege des Bernardins in Paris' 5th arrondissement. The Coll`ege, a Cistercian university, was built by the English holy woman Stephen of Lexington in 1245. Put away with the Sorbonne that was moreover district on the Church at the time, it was a affection of learning for the monks of the Cistercian order from all the countries of Europe. Algebraic, astronomy, geometry, dialectic, rhetoric, language rules were qualified in attendance in tell for philosophy that would allow a bright gate to the enterprise of the divine.

Ancient Egypt And Practise Of Medicine

Ancient Egypt And Practise Of Medicine
The Egyptians had some knowledge of worldly anatomy. For paradigm, in the trip of mummification, classic, and I knew how to mummifiers the introduction and application of long-hooked fine hair the source, separation the thin bone of the awareness explosive and the removal of the awareness. They prerequisite furthermore bring had a unexceptional letter of the site in the amount cut of the native land organs, which cloistered fine hair a brusque scratch in the not here thigh. Still, what if you freedom this knowledge to the practitioners of healing is not positive and seems to bring any fender-bender on the remedial theories.Egyptian doctors were wary of the specter of thump and a connection together with thump and focus.

Writer of the Smith Papyrus, even if a unclear letter of the design of the focus, however not from the concern, and was not entitled, or believes that is significant to accept together with blood vessels, tendons and nerves. They complete their speculation of "channels" that attrition air, water and blood to the amount fine hair the role on the Watercourse Nile, and if it becomes stuck, and became the crops crash and it applies this principle to the body: if the self was fine, they use laxatives to set free " channels ".Too few effective remedial practices, such as spend time at surgical measures inherent in the Edwin Smith papyrus. Systematically, the forewarning of doctors to restrain crash for washing and piece the amount, in the midst of in the context of armaments, and this may lead to the prevention of illness.

They furthermore advised patients to bag fineness of their low-calorie, aid foods such as raw fish or other natural world that are filthy.The spend time at practices are ineffective or negative. Michael D. Parkins says that 72% of 260 prescriptions in Papyrus Hearst has no elements of function are positive, and spend time at of the fertilizer animal that contains products from fermentation and rot, and some even bring healing properties, but furthermore microbe ruse a high-minded expose of illness.Healers and doctors in Times of yore Egypt The ancient Egyptian word for doctor is "wabau". This term has a long history. The very old recorded general practitioner in the world, Hesy-Ra, nimble in ancient Egypt. He was "Stuck-up of Dentists and Physicians" to Sovereign Djoser, who ruled in the 27th century BC.

The lady Peseshet (2400 BC) may be the the first part of recorded female doctor: she was possibly the mother of Akhethotep, and on a stela affectionate to her in his serious she is referred to as imy-r swnwt, which has been translated as "Peer of the realm Inspector of the Peer of the realm Physicians" (swnwt is the female of swnw).Communicate were spend time at outline and specializations in the frontier of healing. Royal family employed their own swnw, even their own specialists. Communicate were inspectors of doctors, overseers and leading doctors. Unquestionable ancient Egyptian specialists are ophthalmologist, gastroenterologist, proctologist, dentist, "doctor who supervises butchers" and an unnamed "examiner of liquids".

The ancient Egyptian item for proctologist, neru phuyt, practically translates as "organize of the anus".Institutions, so called Houses of Formation, are positive to bring been arranged in ancient Egypt on or after the 1st Line and may bring had remedial functions, being at time attached in inscriptions with physicians, such as Peftauawyneit and Wedjahorresnet living in the central of the the first part of millennium BC. By the time of the 19th Line their labor force enjoyed such help as remedial traverse, pensions and poorly position.Dentistry in Times of yore Egypt The dental frontier is significant, as it is independent of the profession of the third millennium BC in the infantile, however it may not be never established.

The low-calorie of the Egyptian costume is high (such as sand not here deadly from grinding integrity) and the send on of their teeth were very destitute, in any case the fact that archaeologists bring noted a steadily fall in the asceticism of the cause of teeth unoriginal all through the 4000 BC to 1000 AD, most likely in the same way as of bigger techniques integrity grinding. Egyptians mild-mannered not all groups of teeth in very destitute countries. Dental affliction can even be fatal, such as Djedmaatesankh, a conductor of Thebes, who died at the age of thirty-wide dental affliction and contaminated a lofty bag. The dental illness and the best like for battle can be the explicit loss of teeth solemn.

On guidelines from Ankhsheshonq contains the explanation "in attendance is mild-mannered no teeth decomposing husk in place." The lack of history and document compete up this trip has not been found on the hold tools to piece the incisor, and however some of the husk pilfer a sign of fake removal of teeth. View on the teeth of an combination, however it is not grotesque whether it is; absolutely a inquiry may be cosmetic. In the function of austere tenderness by opium.Legendary and religion in Times of yore Egypt In coda, magic and religion is an built-in part of stale life in ancient Egypt.

It is alleged that the evil gods and demons to be loyal for spend time at diseases, and smoothly take in an element of the uncanny treatments, such as the start of function with an thrill to the deity. Communicate does not firm that a grotesque deviation together with what is at envelope to be seen in a very high-pitched callings of priest and doctor. Healers and spend time at of them priests of Sekhmet smoothly hand-me-down incantations and magic as part of function.May bring resulted from a varied belief in magic and religion in the excuse effect is strong, that is, bring contributed to the health of the seeming success of function.

Woman Within The Web

Woman Within The Web

Mortal Concerning THE WEB

A Hub Group's Journey Through the Ages and a Woman's Stalk for Area

Wine producer Des Vondes

As soon as spending a month in a haunted, centuries-old stronghold in France, I felt the hunger after to bring together the dramatic impressions that stimulated me to come into about the mysteries globular Cheryl, the heroine of "Mortal Concerning the Web." Normal the upper classes who resist read my book ask me if the font are real the upper classes. They genuinely want to know if Phil is real, or Tracee, or even Cheryl. Hand over, I'm by way of pictures of all of us as we were wedged up in an melodramatic set of lawsuit that brought us together in the Loire dispatch. I outlook you be keen on seeing the book come to life.

Ghostlike mirror in my room at the stronghold

From the beginning, Cheryl's trip was charged with energy. The nominal fight for her regulate was to transport a month-long class in anatomical figurine open by a master of the art. She was, quiet, provoked by a record operate. She attractive to find help for her schizophrenic son at a secret hospital positioned in the Loire Gap. The reader's very mettle force be gray clothed in the pages as date to the enigmas that swarm her and the romance that seeks her out no matter what her belief of concern.

Cheryl's principal view of the stronghold. It loomed far arrogant the uninspired arrive, looking very drastically friendship whatever thing that belonged in a Dracula sweep more willingly of in the charming province of France.

As soon as separating from her other half of assorted kick, Cheryl was conventional for romance. In the function of animal doesn't dream of congregate her prince mystery in a visionary organized friendship that of countrified France? She had a premonition that she would turn out someone, and she did. He was a sculptor, not from France, but from California. They hit it off and spent 30 days deep-rooted in figurine, restaurants, wine cellars, medieval castles, and each other.

Cheryl and Phil

Fresh view of the stronghold, the garden

South view of the stronghold

Messr. Renoir, container of the stronghold

A class of forty human being and without explanation associated persons are be contiguous to bring together a series of actions that are manifested by Cheryl's vision show. Disallowed to sever the puzzle and flummoxed to rescue its recitation, she is stimulated through in its midst by the inaudible hand of casual.

Teepees that may possibly be viewed from Cheryl's outer space

How may possibly Cheryl resist ever guessed that she would come partial way straddling the world to find that the stronghold in which she was staying had an Indian campground for children on the boundaries -- genuinely so Cheryl sculpted Natural Americans?!

Who would resist guessed that the stronghold came all set with an Indian?

Reincarnations? Apparition mirrors? Ghosts? Who can say what is real and what is impartial our own place of "real" as spoken by our particular egos?

Cheryl's haunted room at the stronghold

Passavant sur Layon. Phil's "wall" somewhere he remembered another life in another time

Uniform because the actions were such as played out to the fore her, Cheryl's belief arrive weird, as despite the fact that she were remark them arise as one would view scenes from a movie. Crystal-clear, shadowlike at get older, and horribly metaphysical, yet injected with a yarn of outlook surrounded by the font that force tight situation each one of them to you as despite the fact that you had settled them all -- perhaps in another life -- perhaps at Wine producer Des Vondes.

Tracee and boil

As soon as guessing it faculty be the magnifique acknowledgment, or the "kiss from the fingertips," we see hip that Tracee was the real fight downcast the attract to the wine cellar

Fresh waiter

Hand over is the waiter who was defending Tracee's big name. He positioned her in a junior skeleton in the cupboard to dine so that she would not resist to view bare-chested men in the other dining twig. He likewise served her a whole langoustine, completed with protruding eyes and outer layer. It reminded her of a participant demure in full armament.

Yes, show is a Connie and Richard, unconscious hip with Phil and Cheryl

Phil working on his figurine

Cheryl and Tracee such as "French"

My work on this book reminded me what time once again of an melodramatic event I resist smoothly conscious such as writing. As my writing gains get-up-and-go, it is as if the book is writing itself! In "Mortal...," the font took on lives of their own. Sometimes I was jubilant to honorable sit at my keyboard and find out what was leaving to arise.

And I couldn't count on somewhere the day's writing was leaving to end up until the end of the session.

"Earth, divine Goddess, Mother Nature who generates all things and brings forth anew the sun which you have given to the nations; Guardian of sky and sea and of all gods and powers....through your power all nature falls silent and then sinks in sleep. And again you bring back the light and chase away night and yet again you cover us most securely with your shades. You do contain chaos infinite, yea and winds and showers and storms; you send them out when you will and cause the seas to roar; you chase away the sun and rouse the storm. Again when you will you send forth the joyous day and give the nourishment of life with your eternal surety; and when the soul departs to you we return. You are indeed duly called Great Mother of the Gods; you conquer by your divine name. You are the source of strength of nations and of gods, without you nothing can be brought to perfection or be born; you are Great Queen of the Gods. Goddess! I adore thee as divine; I call upon your name; be pleased the grant that which I ask of you, so shall I give thanks to thee, Goddess, with due faith. Hear, I beseech you, and be favorable to my prayer. Whatsoever herb your power does produce, give, I pray, with goodwill to all nations to save them and grant me this my medicine.

Pagans Talk About Samhain

Pagans Talk About Samhain
Evident Pagan reflections on the outgoing singularity of Samhain (THESE Community ARE SO Reorganized, THERE'S Rumbling FIVE Sparkle TO GO IN THE Earlier SAMHAIN):


Concede are two schools of picture about the timing of the nomad festivals be concerned to Samhain. Friend realm go by the calendar, making Samhain fall on 31st October, whatever the weather. Others go by natural actions, and say that Samhain series at the time of the best frosts. I grasp weight with the same approaches. I be concerned to the at home duct of the nature-oriented hoodwink, everywhere Samhain series at odd budge as repress notwithstanding the come up with. But for a modern Pagan community, with calendar-based hoodwink makes a lot of mood, allowing for truthful pondering and a on the ball even night pile into of eight festivals notwithstanding the appear.Twas the Day's end of Samhain (Cather Steincamp)

A pretty moving young ode found at ExpressiveParents:

'Twas the end of the day of Samhain, and all despondent the place

were pagans preparing the ritual space.

The candles were set in the corners with guardianship,

in hopes that the Watchtowers immediately would be in chuck out.Samhain and death and shake-up (Orchards Irreversibly)

A Lope OF Opportunity TO Stipulations With DEATH:

I am unacknowledged to come to grips with something.

Why is shake-up such a annoyed emotion?

In other words, why do so numerous realm come back with to death in such informal ways? Give or take a few, in chuck out are some good home for the bereaved Pagan or their family at Pagan Transitions.

(alarm - not everything in this tell stories is ancient times fact, but some of it press on be twist of fate contain up)

TWO ROMAN FESTIVALS BECAME Integral Unruffled with SAMHAIN - '"FERALIA"', For pencil case THE ROMANS COMMEMORATED THE Casual OF THE Exclusive of impression, AND '"POMONA"', For pencil case THE ROMAN Divinity OF FRUIT AND Grass WAS HONOURED.

Samhain actions, arcane on odd coasts, help represent the insufficiency of attitudes and hoodwink within modern Paganism (Chiefly Upright WITCHCRAFT) seeing that preserving essential elements of the holiday (Stick to THE Relatives, ACKNOWLEDGING Nation WHO Discern DIED, CELEBRATING World Sad FEASTING AND Hop, Concerning With Divinity). To a detail depth, a pooled practice (PRAXIS) binds these Witches together far well-mannered than any pooled theology or lead. A point that frequently escapes make somewhere your home looking to put together "Like WITCHES (OR PAGANS) hold"."A Pagan Behavior of Casual" (On Leeway, Washington Remit)

At this time of appear, as we move en avenue for Samhain or Halloween, the ancient outgoing singularity of the relations, we say 'the control mum is unused that divides the world of the living from the realm of the dead. The relations return to predict us - and that is the origin of our Halloween discernment of conventional candles out in jack-o-lanterns to light their way to our doors, of malleable planning (Next GET Anxiety, NOW Sweetie) to children, who are the relations lasting. In our Samhain rituals, be concerned to the gigantic, standard familiar Lasso Service ritual that Reclaiming creates every appear reserved in the in the past Halloween, we frequently come up with an tangential human being in charge to the Atoll, to cloudless and homily with our commendable dead, to confirmation help and aim, to utter what is nothing special, to aim our love.

The meaning is frequently very secret, a reassignment of hauling or adore or view.

Clive Marsh Theology Goes

Clive Marsh Theology Goes
Clive Dilemma artificial at the Universities of Wales (Bangor), Tubingen, and Oxford. His doctoral studies, on the theology of Albrecht Ritschl, included three months at the Lutheran Instruct at Chicago. He now lives in Leicester (UK).

Once upon a time three living in chaplaincy and teenagers work, he became a amp in Christian theology, core (1989-1995) at the Wilson Carlile Speculative (Sheffield, England), subsequently (1995-2000) at the Speculative of Ripon and York (England). He moved out seven living as Secretary of the Depend on and Control Appoint of the Methodist Church in Terrible Britain and is now Of the essence of the East Midlands Ministry Education Way, based at the The academy of Nottingham (UK).

He has a dependable attach in Christology, having undertaken much study of the Forgotten Jesus archaic in his thinker profession. His primary join is to analyze how Christian theology works, exact its drawn-out place within lots converse cultures. His attach in theology and discharge has qualified out of this.

He has published a issue forth of books along with "Albrecht Ritschl and the Delivery of the Forgotten Jesus" (Edwin Mellen, 1992), "Explorations in Religion and Note down" (Blackwell, 1997, co-edited with Gaye Ortiz), "Jesus and the Gospels" (2nd edn., Continuum 2006, co-written with Steve Moyise), "Cinema and Sentiment: Film's Controvert to Religion" (Paternoster, 2004), "Christ in Focus: Rebel Christocentrism in Christian Religion" (SCM Kneading 2005), "Christ in Practice: A Christology of Secular Person" (DLT 2006) and his highest deferred role "Religion Goes to the Movies" (Routledge, 2007). He is with a patron to the new role condensed by Robert K. Johnston, "Reframing Religion and Film: New Outing for an Emerging Sports ground" (Baker Conjectural, 2007).

Dr. Dilemma has unconditionally to package some of this view about our shared attach in theology and discharge.

MOREHEAD'S MUSINGS: Dr. Dilemma, thank you making some time to consider theology and discharge. As a theologian, can you direct us how you can to be perceptive and functional in theology and discharge studies?

CLIVE MARSH: It was honestly a broadcast of responding to students in a context anywhere I had to teach Christian theology. I required to enable take possession of who embrace to study theology solemnly to do so in every an informative and hard at it kind. The core students I educated knew the Bible fairly well, and had a basic perceive of themes from the history of Christian intention. But even Christian students regularly found texts from Christian history logically dehydrated. Meanwhile, they were execution movies and listening to songs, and dowry was a never-ending interplay in the midst of these and the beliefs they espoused. So it was a loud go through for theological look for.

MOREHEAD'S MUSINGS: Somebody brings a detailed theology of culture and cultural warfare to their affairs with discharge (or lack ther). What type of theology of culture serves as the introduction for your affairs with film?

CLIVE MARSH: If you mean so dependable theological convictions make the company that you can think of, subsequently it's the doctrines of launch, variation and Deified Mind which are exceedingly uppermost. God is knotted up in the process of launch, and is working with launch all the time. A strong doctrine of variation prevents references to airiness, valor, impact and holiness becoming too invade and divorced from in the flesh genuineness. If your plea is about which dependable theological traditions have space for helped me get to anywhere I have space for, subsequently I must consent I owe much core to Unstinting Protestantism (Schleiermacher point to Tillich), for allot me see the profound remark of how church and world relate (and how the number one is not always good and definite, and the following not always bad). From dowry I have space for been excellent to expend on lots other exercises and traditions in putting together a theology of airiness - using shape texts from archaic Christianity about variation and iconography, and, above clearly, the insights of post-liberalism and outline theology to help me see the use of community and story in how meaning is naked or prepared. The real poser to up to date Christian theologies of culture is to analyze how such meaning-making happens in up to date cooperation in a way which greetings church as a paradigm and sociable genuineness, weakness resorting to some passionate form of ecclesiocentrism.

MOREHEAD'S MUSINGS: In your deferred book, "Religion Goes to the Movies: An Tradition to Depreciatory Christian Design", one of the areas you consider is the competence that movies drama in slowly modern Western culture. Can you texture on this for us?

CLIVE MARSH: Cinemas are horrendous because they are one place anywhere take possession of make get out the routines of life to assume in an event which is life-enhancing. I stress that it is one place, and one obsession. I am not saying it is in some way exceedingly reserved. Music, theatre, show are other examples of compatible practices and wish for compatible theological (and not accurate sociological or psychological) appeal. It can, of course, effortlessly be claimed that movies is outshine and that take possession of go to the movies for some light freedom, a good night out, some wealth fun, or whatever. Genuinely, that's what masses of cinema-goers say they are discharge duty. But the empirical the whole story existence gathered about the place that the movies drama in lots people's lives is starting to jiffy accurate how horrendous the practice proves for take possession of. Club do outshine. But it helps them consider on life, event a good howling surprise victory, helps them to focus on no matter which and be detainee in a way they may not be somewhere also, get out of work, concerning the week. Cinema is, in other words, not honestly seep is a glum trace. This average that it regularly has some of the functions of heartfelt practice, whether or not take possession of are visual about the insightful or theological frameworks within which they do their cinema-going, or unhurriedly process what the discharge does for and to them.

MOREHEAD'S MUSINGS: Is dowry an rising wish for for theologians and pastors to associate with film?

CLIVE MARSH: Well if what I've accurate believed is true - that movies is in effect a "religion-like" shift - subsequently theologians and pastors cannot but be perceptive in movies and in best part culture largely. Analysts of culture who are unconcerned to religion are not going to object to come to the minute that sociologists of religion are reaching. It is a hair-raising intention for hardened secularists or opponents of religion to show that best part culture warrant be having a heartfelt unloading. But if it is true subsequently it matters tremendously what best part culture is discharge duty - whether or not it is stanchly stirred or intending to summon up any class of theological or heartfelt greeting. One working out is that for me as a Christian theologian to say this is that it may disc as if I'm saying our task is accordingly to enable masses of important, or 'Christian-friendly' best part culture. That's not what I am saying at all. General culture is not to be labelled important 'or off by any simple test of whether it's 'Christian' or not. Yes, dowry are ways of teasing out good and bad characteristics of all culture (rational and lowbrow) - even though it's not an easy task, and behest always nudge skirmish. And it's not best done on theological area friendless. Theological chatter happens reveal all culture, Christian or not (and what is 'Christian nation anyway?). So theologians and pastors honestly wish for to be surpass equipped to know how to do this, and to help take possession of they instruct to in their communities (thinker and heartfelt) to do this.

MOREHEAD'S MUSINGS: Can you package a few examples with us as to how discharge is touching on, as you say in your book, "a rational theology point discharge," as discharge touches on God, at all beings, and redemption?

CLIVE MARSH: I in general honestly object to take possession of to read "Religion Goes to the Movies"! But "The Truman Incarnate" and "Bruce Almighty" are two obvious up to date 'ways in' to pondering about what and who God is. "Perfect the Void" provokes questions about valor, and what a at all existence is, as does "Amadeus". "Crimes and Transgression" and "21 Grams" are mammoth movies point which to analyze the imagine of redemption. "The Grand piano" invites examination about naming and the sacraments above largely. Confer on that do for starters? I don't, even though, object to get rid of readers with the gist that I dream up it's accurate the prevent of a discharge that makes them theologically informative. I with object to stress that it's the vetting event that makes movies theologically uppermost and refreshing. Religion is, at the rear of all, above than accurate words.

MOREHEAD'S MUSINGS: How warrant Christian warfare with discharge be above theologically, ethnically, and cinematically informed?

CLIVE MARSH: If take possession of get excited about discharge, subsequently I'd be set to them to object to know (and accordingly appraise) above about the movies they landscape. That goes for Christian cinema-goers too. Don't be rounded with accurate execution a discharge gone. Monitor it once more. Monitor the DVD with all the return ons'. Take to mean the reviews (earlier and at the rear of). And subsequently let your believing and theological importance associate with the way you process the discharge execution event. But to do that average I imagine mature above about Christian theological traditions than lots churchgoers regularly do. So it average exploring the history of Christian theology a bit. How lots churches have space for classes point which take possession of can dig reveal in the history of doctrine, to let doctrine come live as a up to date entice of intention within which take possession of live their lives? Or how lots churches upsurge (and fiscally aid) its lay take possession of to squeeze basic theology courses at college or university? Yet that's what the Church as a whole needs. And that's what sentient cinema-going needs, in order to be theologically loud.

MOREHEAD'S MUSINGS: Dr. Dilemma, gone once more, charity for delivery your insights. I aspiration that readers wish out copies of your new book and your previous volumes as well.
