Heaven's Gate

Kindred,

Are you beyond reach?

The propaganda of imagined salvation by the Unholies and the pervasive perversion of the Truth to give themselves absolution without the redemption process is extremely troubling.

The abusers of innocents and Truth treat scripture as a weapon of manipulation to cover-up sins and their patterns of sinful behaviors resulting in crimes against humanity and serious injuries..

Unrepentant and defiant in the face of Damnation, these Unholies continue to groom co-conspirators into continuous abuses and complicity.

Let's call what is happening for what it is: corruption.

Now, just how wide is Heaven's Gate? 

And how easy is it to enter?

You first have to find the gate in order to enter.  And according the Jesus, those who are able to find it are few. 

It is going to be fewer still when people fail to see, to hear, to speak, to understand and to walk in the Truth. 

Will you be able to find Heaven's Gate? 

Will you be able to enter?

The Poor

Kindred,

How about some clarity?

Why are there so many confusing messages in life, especially in spiritual life?

There are so many misinterpretations and mistranslations in the mist of the substantive accuracy that it becomes difficult to know and reconcile the spiritual truth with the facts of life. 

It does not help that sinners in authority deliberately pervert the truth to suit their manipulations and lies.

The manipulators playbook as described by one sexual abuse victim: "The first thing they did was to treat me as a liar, turn their backs and tell me that I, and others, were enemies of the Church.  This pattern exists all over the world, and this must end."*

The victims after unspeakable abuses are so gaslighted and revictimized that they are reduced to experiencing gratitude when they are simply believed and their voices heard.

A clear example of poor in spirit (in the victim).

Abusers would have you believe that poor can mean unholy or sinful or abusive, but does not and is not the definition.  Poor means brought low (by injury or tragedy).

When the poor in spirit seek then the Kingdom of Heaven will be theirs. 

You have to wonder, in these cases, where is the love, the compassion and the ministry for the innocent, the abused, the victims?

Moral Outrage

Dear Kindred,

It is OK to be angry, to have moral outrage.

When Jesus Christ confronted the money changers in temple, Jesus was not meek. His countenance was not gentle, sweet or kind. The upturned tables and scattering of monies were the evidence of this fact. He was clearly upset that the money changers were desecrating sacred space with sins of greed.

How do you think Jesus would respond today to sexual abuse in temple? To sexual abuse of children?

The Time is Now

Kindred,

There is a time and a place for everything under Heaven; and knowing when and understanding what  that time and place happens to be (as determined by the Lord), is a challenge.

Life is complicated.  Happiness and love emotional.  Trials and tribulations difficult. It is a wonder that we can function at all, let alone know what and when to follow the Lord's commands.

What to do and how to deal become even more confusing when confronted with unholy acts of sin, hatred and violence; the intent to harm.

It is confusing, because these actions are contrary to the Lord's commandments of love and peace; and it is difficult to know how to defend against sin, hatred, violence and harm.

I do know that we must try.


The time is now to stop sexual abuse in the church.
The time is now to hold sexual predators accountable.
The time is now to end these sinful practices.
The time is now to demand the church to get back to leading the way to salvation; and be the light guiding the leaders of the world (in ethics and morality).     


Apparently, I forgot to mention purpose.

What is the purpose of church and ministry?










Fallen Angels

Kindred,

Do you think when someone commits a sin that it is about forgiveness?

The act of sin committed against the Lord, the victim and one's soul is a wrong.

When a person commits multiple sins, it becomes a pattern of sinful behaviors and negative attributes that describe the character of that person.

The sins causes injury or injuries, pain and suffering.

Once imbedded in sins, the sinner is serving two masters and will hate the good, and shift the responsibility of the wrong to the victim.       

So I ask again, "Do you think when someone does something wrong that it is about forgiveness"?

When Heaven casted out the fallen angels, it was not about forgiveness.

If it was about forgiveness, these fallen angels would still be in Heaven and there would be no Hell.

What then is it about?

What is Peace?

Kindred,

Don't misunderstand.

Depending upon your biases, experiences or upbringing, you might interpret what I say differently and from what I had intended. 

What comes to your mind when I say the word meek?

In today's fast paced and competitive environment, this word has a rather negative connotation;

defined as "quiet, gentle, and easily imposed on; submissive."

Easily imposed on? Submissive?  Meaning easily bullied?


If meek is so bad, why then would Jesus say to us, "Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth"?

How then could this even be possible or probable?  Can you think of no reason?



Today, in the United States, is President's Day. 

What do you celebrate in a leader?

When you think of a leader, does meekness come to mind? 

No, because it is associated with weakness and weakness is not only very bad, it's death. 

Yet, what does Jesus say?

I ask you now, "What is peace?"

Heaven's Example

Kindred,

When should people recognize the truth?

When should they uphold the truth?

The fact that I had to even ask, tells you the state of the church and society.

Are truths covered up, buried, perverted or even torched?

How do you address problems when it is never identified or recognized?

In many of our churches today, sexual predators run free and unchecked in sin, inappropriate behaviors and abuse of power .

It is rarely talked about.

What has been talked about covers only the tip of the iceberg.

The truth in many of these cases is covered up, buried, perverted and torched.  Ministers side with perpetrators, because they are groomed to do so or are themselves the perpetrators; and victims are silenced, vilified, retaliated against because of this truth.

When the Catholic priest Theodore McCarrick was defrocked for his sexual abuse against minors, I thought it was about time.

But it is utter hypocritical to think that the Catholic Church is the only denomination with this problem.

Churches and society should face the truth and deal with this problem.

Just as fallen angels were cast out of Heaven, priests or ministers committing grievous sins of child molestation, rape, sexual abuse or misconduct should be defrocked and held to account for their crimes.

We should follow Heaven's example.

The Meaning of Valentine's Day

Kindred,

Yesterday, I had this conversation with a ten year old kid.

The kid said, "I got only eleven Valentine's Day cards."

Silence.

"Out of thirty."

Hmm.

"When ____ passed by with candy, ___ skipped me."

Silence.

"On purpose, because I stopped ____ and asked."


I mumbled something here.  What to say?

Maybe try, "Did you give ___ your Valentine's Day candy for her?"

The kid said, "Yes, I gave to everyone."

"Good," I said, "then you did not do anything wrong.  ____ is the one being mean."

But the kid stopped listening, still too hurt to hear.


"What's the meaning of Valentine's Day? " I tried.

But the kid did not want to talk anymore.



Should Valentine's Day be about causing hurt feelings?

Should it be about using candy to be mean and bully?

Regard of Her

Kindred,

Did it matter to Jesus Christ the treatment of women?

Jesus determined women, such as Saint Mary Magdalene to be not only worthy, but declared that among his disciples, she most understood His teachings.

Yet no where were her understandings written or passed down.

How much of Christ's teachings were lost or not fully understood, because of her missing voice, we will never know.

Even more unfortunate, Jesus Christ's intention towards her and women were never honored or followed.

When will His regard and vision towards her and women be fully realized?

Never, as long as jealousy, hatred and discrimination are allowed to be practiced against women in the church and in society.

Did it matter to Jesus Christ the treatment of women?

How important then is His regard and vision towards her and women be honored and followed?

Would it matter?

The Love in You


Dear Babyly Snowflake,

Love exists.
Love is real.

In love,
You feel the warmth of the heart or the sadness of being apart.

In love,
You feel the wonder. 

The wonder of love that transcends time,
Transcendence.

No matter what happens in life 
Or how much time goes by
Know that love and the Love of the Lord exists and lives on
In you.



Happy Valentine's Day :)

Yet to Be


Kindred,

I know that sometimes it gets difficult; 
life can hurt and be challenging. 

Instead of wallowing in self-pity, 
why not focus on your soul and the majesty of you yet to be? 

No one can take away the love within yourself 
or the Love of the Lord.

If you think you have lost the love within yourself, 
rediscover it.  

And if you have never known love within yourself, 
find time to discover it. 

Only you can let love in 
and be with Love. 

The wonderful aspect of life, even in challenges, is the dichotomy; 
nothing is new, yet everything is. 

Luckily, there are depths to life and love, 
yet to be.

And what that is, 
is mostly up to you. 

Let the Love of the Lord guide you in life, in love
and in the you that is yet to be.

Live the Life


Kindred,

My heart is heavy in disappointment towards those that were supposed to uphold freedom, decency, love, kindness, and integrity of the Lord with the Lord.  

The pain from the abuses at the hands of hypocrites and false ministers that are more interested in the sins of the flesh and power of Caesar than eternal life, still hurts. 

I am sad, that after countless sacrifices of good women and men, we have not moved beyond the abuses, hatred and sin.  

How can we move beyond, when our very ministers and leaders are engaged in patterns of bad behaviors and abuse of power that rots and corrupts the moral fiber of church and society?

When inalienable rights and truths are ignored and perverted into weapons to divide and conquer into hatred, sins and lies, then everything we hold dear and all that we are become under threat and endangered.  

In sad and uncertain times, we must have the bravery to bring to life the teachings of Christ by holding ourselves, our ministers and leaders to the highest standards of moral conduct, and uphold freedom, decency, love, kindness, and integrity of the Lord with the Lord.  

Perhaps by applying bravery to teachings and really living the Life in life, we can then move beyond the abuses, hatred and sin.

Ignorance Is Not Bliss


Kindred,

William Shakespeare once wrote, “Ignorance is the curse of God; knowledge is the wing wherewith we fly to heaven.”

No one that is a Christian questions the existence of the Holy; and within the Holy, the power of the Trinity. 

Therefore, particular care should be given to the words of Christ; and though disciples have valid teachings, they are not Christ.

If Jesus Christ only ever or mostly referred to himself as the Son of man, then there must be good reason.  

What is this reason?

Be Yourself


Kindred,

I cannot believe that I have to define sin, but I find it often used inappropriately as a tool for hatred and discrimination against a group or person simply for being different. 

A sin is a crime against humanity and the Lord.  A sin is acting without morals and causes injury to the soul or character.  

To condemn a group or person simply for being different or having a different lifestyle is wrong, especially when there is no harm done to person or character or even society and when that is who they are and who they are cannot be changed through any kind of steps or action.

In the final determinate, when we die, we cannot take the color of our skin or our gender with us; we cannot take any material wealth or power; we can only take our character or panache.  

Therefore, do not judge and do not discriminate, especially against those that committed no crime and did nothing wrong. 

There is nothing wrong with being yourself.    

Live Free


Kindred,

Say no to sin. 

Say no to preachers that preach as if we are all sinners; therefore, we should accept or excuse sin or sinful behavior. 

Say yes to redemption and salvation. 

Say no to the grooming or complicity to sin and sins of the flesh. 

Say no to being treated like sinners, as if we are all criminals guilty of sin. 

Say no to wishful delusions of forgiveness when there is no remorse, no confession of sin, and no atonement; consequently, no redemption or salvation. 

When someone sins or commits crime against humanity and the Lord, no amount of remorse or forgiveness will undo the harm or damage to the soul of the perpetrator or injury to the victim. 

What it does do is begin the process of cleansing the soul or healing the injury. 

If someone sins, treat the sin as if you would treat an addiction or bad habit.  An AA program has twelve steps.  It does the addict no good to only go through the first step or part of the steps then stop there.  

Confession of the problem or sin is the first step; then the addict must work through all the steps in order to stay sober or clean.  This is the same with sin or sinful behaviors.  The sinner must go through all the steps of redemption in order to be saved and have true salvation. 

Say yes to healing, to repentance and to salvation.  

Let the Grace of the Lord be with you by being free from sin. 

Let the Truth set you free. 

Live free.

Honor the Lord


Kindred,

Bad enough that the Unholies thieve, lie and deceive, but to steal from the Lord by abusing and dishonoring innocents in slavery, sexual slavery and sins of the flesh, is the ultimate sacrilege.  

How do you intend to honor the Lord?

Do you ever intend to atone?

Envision


Kindred,

When every purpose under Heaven is hampered by abuses and abuse of power, then nothing is of Heaven: 

Mindless movements,
Heartless acts of depravity,
Soulless carelessness of reckless disregard,
Are not any kind of goodness in intellectual thought or kind regard.

Senseless power trips that lead to damnation,
Will not, magically, lead to salvation. 

Therefore, envision a mind in careful deliberation,
 a heart in respectful consideration,
And a soul in wondrous discernment and contemplation.

Who Are You?

Kindred,

When you open at the close of life, what do you have?


  When threats go unheeded, tragedy strikes, especially when brothers are turned against brothers and friends against neighbors. So many peo...
