I am not a Christian so do not believe there will one day be an anti-Christ, my father told me when I was young that many people believed that Hitler was the anti-Christ due to the amount of atrocities he had willingly committed and this to me seemed plausible.
One of my fears concerning anti-Christ theory’s is that they are constantly looking for one and accusing others that they are one and that we therefore are living in the end of days all the time. At the time of Jesus some of his believes then truly with all their hearts also belived that they to were living in the end times and 2000 years later the debate still rages on amongst people of strong religious beliefs across a whole spectrum of religions about when are they going to happen and who is the anti-christ or leader of evil. So I hope and pray that there is no anti-christ and that Putin is therefore not one to.
Putin is weaving us down his very dark path through time immemorial. He is building his legacy on the bones & bodies of the dead ordered at his command. The non-believer in the freedom of thought, action and expression of individuals. The denier of Sovereignty to states and denier of democratic rights of his own citizens as well as those of others, well he does not have my vote.
His actions are not those of someone that wishes to protect others, but punish them from straying from his hell bent perception of the world. The strength of will of the people of Ukraine really shames Putin and all that he stands for.
I thought you could not kill an ideal once born into this world. I now know thanks to Ukraine you can’t kill a nation that knows it has the right to exist.
Omnipresence means all-present. This term means that God is capable of being everywhere at the same time. It means his divine presence encompasses the whole of the universe. There is no location where he does not inhabit.
Therefore there is no lie you can create, no version of events that you can describe that divine truth will not see through.
I struggle to comprehend what makes a righteous religious person justify death, deceit and betrayal. Though in the eyes of the son of god your sins are forgiven as a Christian you still have the chance to choose not to make decision that cause death, deceit and betrayal to others.
We are not bound by the sins of our ancestors and I hope we are given the opportunity within our lives to take responsibility for our own actions and leave this world a better place than the one from once we came.
When we leave our mother’s womb we all enter into this world as refugees to earth. Having never lived here in the time and space in which we find ourselves as refugees to our earthly home we hope to be welcomed and given an opportunity to not just exist but to do so with purpose and meaning.
So work for this planet like its the only one we have, becasue it is. Every little positive step is a step in the right direction. Think fair, shop fair, act fair. Support the local, act global define what is your normal.
White Buffalo Calf Woman (Lakȟótiyapi: Ptesáŋwiŋ) or White Buffalo Maiden is a sacred woman of supernatural origin, central to the Lakota religion as the primary cultural prophet. Oral traditions relate that she brought the “Seven Sacred Rites” to the Lakota people.
Buffalo are considered sacred to many of the Plains nations, who often consider them linked to creation, medicine and bringers of sacred messages from the ancestors.
Words have power, but actions speak louder than words. We have choices and choices require consent. My faith in the belief of God and in God’s Love and Wisdom are overwhelming and because of those very beliefs I hope and pray that an apoclypticim never actually happens on earth or at the very least is preventable, i.e. no fate but what we make for ourselves.
What if that is Gods ‘final’ test to us earthlings is to prevent or ensure any such possibility of an apocalypse never happens instead of as some see it try to make it happen or at least interpret that it is happening. All religions speak of love and love of God to humanity and yet to decide who is your human enemy that must then be slaughtered in a final battle of good versus evil is in no way a loving act.
To foresee action and consequence is to learn from what has been in order to prevent the horror of what could be.
Apocalypticism is the religious belief that there will be an apocalypse, a term which originally referred to a revelation, but now it usually refers to the belief that the end of the world is imminent, even within one’s own lifetime. This belief is usually accompanied by the idea that civilization will soon come to a tumultuous end due to some sort of catastrophic global event. These views and movements often focus on cryptic revelations about a sudden, dramatic, and cataclysmic intervention of God in history; the judgment of all men; the salvation of the faithful elect; and the eventual rule of the elect with God in a renewed heaven and earth. Arising initially in Zoroastrianism, apocalypticism was developed more fully in Judaic, Christian, and Islamic eschatological speculation.
Apocalypticism is often conjoined with the belief that esoteric knowledge will likely be revealed in a major confrontation between good and evil forces, destined to change the course of history. Apocalypses can be viewed as good, evil, ambiguous or neutral, depending on the particular religion or belief system promoting them. However, it is not exclusively a religious idea and there are end times or transitional scenarios based in modern science and technology.
With all that is going on at the moment I have been this morning trying to square the circle concerning righteous anger and this does appear to be the case above according to Christian doctrine. Though I am not a Christian I would say that Christianity is most certainly the root of my teachings. At a young age I attended Sunday school and was known affectionately by others as and identified as a bible basher.
a person who expounds or follows the teachings of the Bible in an aggressively evangelical way.)
Then at Secondary school during my A Levels I went on to study Christian Theology. My grades were very poor put I did pass the course. At that time I had lost faith in the concept of Jesus Christ as my personal saviour and so had a very sceptical view of Christian Perspectives and motives. I appreciated Christianities Theological Righteousness, but had no concept of a living breathing Jesus in my heart or in the world or accepting him as my own personal saviour.
One of many things that pushes me away from all mainstream religions is that they all claim to offer you a pass to heaven and God if you do exactly what they say, teach and preach and that there’s is the only true God.
I know many good people that have passed and if they have gone to your hell to me hell can’t be as hellish as you claim it to be. According to each religion I am sure I would be able to point out millions of souls over the millennia that will never get a chance to go to your heaven and millions of souls that can obey your rules and go to your heaven that might in fact ultimately be very bad people.
So this concept of defining who does and does not go to heaven or hell, does generate within me a certain Righteous indignation.

Ask not what you can do to your country but what your country can do to you.
President Trump is no Kennedy but let your country have a Future and your children have a Mother or Father an Uncle or an Aunt a Grandparent or guide or most importantly let your future seed have a life.
Ich bin ein Berliner
“Ich bin ein Berliner“ (German pronunciation: [ˈʔɪç ˈbɪn ʔaɪn bɛɐ̯ˈliːnɐ], “I am a Berliner“) is a speech by United States PresidentJohn F. Kennedy given on June 26, 1963, in West Berlin. It is widely regarded as the best-known speech of the Cold War and the most famous anti-communist speech. Kennedy aimed to underline the support of the United States for West Germany 22 months after Soviet-occupied East Germany erected the Berlin Wall to prevent mass emigration to the West. The message was aimed as much at the Soviets as it was at Berliners and was a clear statement of U.S. policy in the wake of the construction of the Berlin Wall. Another phrase in the speech was also spoken in German, “Lasst sie nach Berlin kommen” (“Let them come to Berlin”), addressed at those who claimed “we can work with the Communists”, a remark at which Nikita Khrushchev scoffed only days later.
The speech is considered one of Kennedy’s best, both a notable moment of the Cold War and a high point of the New Frontier. It was a great morale boost for West Berliners, who lived in an enclave deep inside East Germany and feared a possible East German occupation. Speaking from a platform erected on the steps of Rathaus Schöneberg for an audience of 120,000, Kennedy said,
Individuals with different cultures, perspectives and experiences are at the heart of the way existence works. Life wants to recruit, develop and retain the most talented people, regardless of their background and make best use of their talents. Guided by values in everything we do, and recognise that being a diverse and inclusive employer (life) helps us fulfilour responsibility and to make a difference. Life seeks to develop a work environment where we treat all as individuals, fairly and in a consistent way. Life works within spirit and practice to promoting a culture of respect and dignity and actively challenging discrimination, should it ever arise. Life will remove unnecessary barriers for our seekers and provide opportunities through training and development, promotion and life planning. Life will continue to support our leaders, managers and employees to demonstrate the principles of diversity and inclusion in their everyday activities, roles and functions.
Though there are things that are out of lifes control she does her best to work with what she has doing what she can.
