Wild at Heart

Bride and GroomWives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. 24 Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.

25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. 28 So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church. 30 For we are members of His body,[d] of His flesh and of His bones. 31 “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.”[e] 32 This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church. 33 Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.   Ephesians 5:22-33

The above passage gets a lot of people’s ire up. Feminism has generally got a lot to say about the whole submission line. “Obey” is usually omitted from marriage vows nowadays.

But read the whole thing, slowly, deliberately, and dispassionately. You’ll see that the majority of this passage is directed at the man and the sacrificial manner in which he is to treat his wife. Wives’ submission to their husbands is characterized as the loving response for husbands’ devotion to them. This is how marriage symbolizes our relationship to Christ.

So each, the man and the woman, have a role to play in their relationship and as a family.

Wild at HeartEnter Wild at Heart by John Eldredge. This book was an eye-opener to me when I first read it many years ago. Eldredge shows us how the sexes are wired to assume their roles as adults. Clichés about the damsel in distress and the heroic knight are clichés simply because they are based in reality. That’s how clichés become clichés! The woman wants to be cared for. The man wants to be heroic.

Here’s my take on what Eldredge has to say. God is definitely masculine, but He also possesses the feminine nurturing qualities as well. The Holy Spirit has a feminine expression in the original languages. God symbolically split Himself in two when He created Adam and Eve. Their marriage – and every marriage since – is a symbolic reunion of those two essential parts of God. The union of a man and woman in marriage and producing children is our act of creation, symbolically showing God and His creation in earthly acts.

Do you see now why marriage is so important to God? Do you understand now why sexual sins are especially abhorrent to God?

This is also why Satan is so keen to destroy the family unit on earth. His greatest servant of modern times, Alistair Crowley, founded the modern day Church of Satan. Consider the following:

  • He wrote The Book of the Law, which he claims was dictated to him by “…a disembodied voice that claimed to be that of Aiwass, the messenger of Horus…”1960s
  • Crowley wrote “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.” This became the 60’s mantra, “Do your own thing.”
  • He claimed to be The Great Beast, 666
  • “I was not content to believe in a personal devil and serve him, in the ordinary sense of the word. I wanted to get hold of him personally and become his chief of staff.”
  • Following a mountaintop sex magic ritual, Crowley also performed an invocation to the demon Choronzon involving blood sacrifice, considering the results to be a watershed in his magical career.
  • “Let me seduce the boys…and the oldsters may totter unconverted to their graves. Then these boys, become men, may bring about the new Heaven and the new Earth…but without an army I am useless…give me my army, young men; and we will sweep these dogs into the sea.” Calling for a sexual revolution and destruction of the family.
  • He declared family to be public enemy #1 in his book, Magick Without Tears, saying of family, “Think what horrid images it evokes from the mind. Not only Victorian; wherever the family has been strong it has always been an engine of tyranny…curse them! They are always in the way…to the performance of this work (the New Age) the nearest obstacle and the most obvious is the family.”

Crowley did everything he could to subvert Christian living, including perverted sex, drug use, and rock and roll. If Crowley could see what society has become, he would be proud!

We must cling to what is good, to the teachings God gave mankind from the beginning! History shows that societies who have taken the path we are now on will destroy themselves from within.

I strongly recommend Wild at Heart by John Eldredge. I encourage everyone to not listen to secular, Crowley-influenced teachings about human relations, sex, and family. Remain grounded in God’s Truth and share it with all you know!

King James Bible

Defending the Faith and Living the Faith

jesus-on-cross…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.   Romans 3:23

I read about man who set very high ideals for his company to operate under. He was challenged in an interview as to whether they were attainable, realistic goals. He admitted that they were not, but he added a phrase that caught my attention.

“It’s in the trying that we succeed.”

Sporadic failure is acknowledged, even anticipated in the piece-by-piece tactics of operations, but by maintaining direction, strategic victory is achieved.

franklin-graham-featured-712x475We might think it sounds like so much double talk when Franklin Graham recently said that President Trump is a great defender of the faith even though he might not be the best at living the faith. It seems many, especially the media, are comfortable with holding Trump in judgment over his many transgressions.

Before getting too comfortable sitting in the judgment seat, we might consider shining that spotlight on ourselves.

“I might not be perfect, “ we bluster. “I’m not divorced! At least not as many times as Trump! I’ve never (fill in the blank.)”

But all have sinned.

I’ve heard people say that Christianity is about hypocrisy, and I can understand that, but it really isn’t. We’re all admitting to striving to the perfection God asks us to do. That’s our loving response to the incredible sacrifice and suffering of Jesus. We aren’t saying we’re perfect. We’re saying that we’re trying, know we’ll fail, and we thank God continually for His forgiveness.

But it’s in the trying, in making the loving-response effort that we succeed.

When we point out the failings of others in correcting, loving ways we are helping them with their loving response, helping them keep their focus. That does not make us hypocrites!

wheelchair-old-peopleMy best visual of true Christianity comes from an Atlantic City gambling casino. I saw two very old and frail gentlemen making their way to the slots. The guy with the oxygen tank was pushing his friend in a wheelchair.

That’s us; people on oxygen pushing others in wheelchairs. No one is healthy. No one is perfect. We just keep moseying on as best we can, pointing the way as we stagger out of line from time to time.

Or, as Franklin Graham put it, we can defend the faith even if we don’t do very well living it.

About the Guns

About the guns and last week’s horrid murders in Florida, please allow me to remind everyone…

Magnum 44It most certainly is not about the guns!

Let’s be clear; if it was about guns, these stories would have peaked and plateaued decades ago here and around the world. They haven’t. Events like Florida’s are a more recent development in American history. Guns have been part of America since before we freed ourselves of the crown over 200 years ago. They have been a matter of self-defense and food.

I used to teach a corporate course on problem-solving and decision making; the Kepner-Tregoe model for those who are familiar. It is essentially paint-by-number Aristotelean logic, using wall charts and forms to lay out the facts and draw a conclusion. The defining moment is when you can accurately answer the question, “What changed?”

If guns have been a part of our culture since before our independence from Britain and yet the problem is recent, blaming guns is simply nonsense. One might argue that technology has changed, but that is only so much noise. Technology in gun design has been ongoing for centuries.

I submit the only meaningful change happened when the country as whole followed the words of someone who earned the designation of The Most Hated Woman in America: Madeleine Murray-O’Hare. It was her pushing and bombast that led the charge to abolish prayer in school and remove Christianity from a nation founded upon Christian principles. Why an entire culture would follow the rants of the person IT designated to be Most-Hated is quite beyond me.

Simply, what changed is that The United States of American told God to bugger off. We stopped doing what is right. What stopped so much as caring what is right. We started caring less about objective truth and more about what we decided we wanted our own personal truth to be, all the rest be damned.

We. Stopped. Loving.

Would you shoot someone you loved? Would you shoot someone if you thought you were loved?

Gun control? A fool’s errand. I’ve said so for years, and I’ll say it again here.


Facts bear me out. An article in the Washington Post showed quite conclusively that gun violence has declined in the last few decades in proportion to an increase in gun ownership. The only places where gun violence has increased have been where gun ownership is severely restricted. You can say anything else you want, make any emotional plea, and parade any number of teary survivors, but those facts stand. Anything else is just noise.

Facts made a believer out of a gun control advocate:

Leah Libresco is a statistician and former news writer at FiveThirtyEight, a data journalism site.

She decided to use her resources to do a massive study of gun violence. The facts she herself accumulated convinced her, much to her dismay, that gun control is ineffective.

I used to think gun control was the answer. My research told me otherwise.

I urge you to read her article for yourself.

Other articles I’ve written that address the core of the whole problem:

I sometimes quip that if you are day-dreaming during Bible class and you’re asked a question, you can simply answer, “Jesus” and likely be right.

Truth be told, it isn’t as funny as it is correct. Whatever the problem, Jesus and the love He taught us and commanded us to practice is always the solution!

Jesus Smiling

God’s Ambassadors

And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore[a] and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.    Matthew 28:18-20

Billy GrahamThis has been a week, death being the headline whatever way you turn. Tomorrow I’ll write about the shooting in Florida, but today I want to talk about Billy Graham. And us.

I was born in the ‘50’s, so I grew up knowing who he was even if I was a bit young to fully appreciate his preaching. One of the many articles this week filled in some of the blanks I had missed in my childhood. Dr. Graham was every bit the preacher his reputation said he was. He had the ear of many world leaders; US presidents for generations, popes, kings, queens, as well as the many millions he inspired and led to faith in Jesus.

He was also a flawed man. He fell out with Martin Luther King Jr. over the Viet Nam war, siding with Nixon. Simply, he wasn’t always right. But then who of us is?

I recall reading St. Paul not always being a model Christian either. He writes a line desiring God’s justice, not mercy, against an enemy in his second letter to Timothy:

Alexander the coppersmith did me much harm. May the Lord repay him according to his works.   2 Timothy 4:14

He called for God’s judgment, not God’s mercy and healing. After all the beatings, floggings, shipwrecks, and persecutions, by individuals, the Synagogues, and Rome itself, he wants a pound of flesh, as it were, from a coppersmith.

I would like to be as the Apostles were, as Billy Graham was; ambassadors from God. My faults, my sins tell me I’m not good enough. Satan whispers through them that I am not worthy of being God’s spokesman to the world…or even my small corner of it!

Then I read that Billy could be spectacularly wrong! I read what sounds like a desire for revenge from St. Paul, and I am encouraged by that!

Their failings tell me that it was never them that accomplished so much, but Jesus who strengthened them and equipped them to do His work! Despite my own sins, Jesus continues to forgive me and strengthen me to be His ambassador, if not to the world, to my small part of it.

He equips and strengthens you too. You, me, all of us are God’s Ambassadors to the world! St. Paul. Billy Graham, Dr. King and more were blessed to see their “home run” ministries blasting balls over the fences. You and I might not see the full effect of our ambassadorships, but by faith we know our efforts are not wasted. They are perpetuated well beyond our vision.

I am far from the most read blogger! My readership is not deep, but it is broad. My numbers might not be huge, but I am read by people from every continent on earth, excepting Antarctica; one here, two there, etc. Like pebbles dropped in ponds, like seed that grow and produce more seeds, I am confident that a single grain of my witness of Jesus will produce a plant and more seeds I’ll never see. Africa, Asia, Europe… I might only have an article read by one or two in India or Botswana or some other place, but that’s all it takes to get something started.

You are an Ambassador of God’s wherever you are. I encourage you not to despair of your “posting” as being too small or to remote to make a difference. Indeed, the more bare the field, the greater the opportunity!


And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.”   Matthew 26:26

Grad school in Detroit was a tough time. Our stipend was about $175 every two weeks, which wasn’t much to live on even in the early 80’s! My crock pot was my best friend for eating healthy and yet cheaply.

My weight hovered around 155 lbs., which is a bit thin for a guy who’s 5’10”! Most of us dropped a few pounds in those years!

MeatloafOne day I had a meatloaf with carrots, potatoes, and onions cooking in the pot. Cliff, another actor in the program, and I were talking, and he was rather down. I invited him over to share my meatloaf. It was kung-fu week on channel 50, and Cliff had a black belt in one of the martial arts.

He showed up that evening with a quart of ice cream and a pie! We pretty well destroyed the most everything that was prepared or brought over. We watched Bruce Lee, shared stories and ate.

That was one of my more memorable times from my years in Detroit.

Isn’t it interesting how so many important times revolve around food? Food is how we share bonds with others. I can’t think of a holiday that doesn’t involve food, whether hot dogs and baked beans, ham, colored eggs, or a glut of candy! Eating together brings us together. There is particular satisfaction in cooking food for others.

Should it be surprising that Jesus offered his very body and blood as a spiritual meal? We bond together with other Christians in sharing that meal. We bond with Christ Himself, who prepared it for us.

Thank God He invited us to His feast! Pray that He guides you to find others to invite to His table!


The Sum

Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. 25 And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown.   1 Corinthians 9:23-25

John CoffeyWe are the sum of our injuries. I know the conventional saying is that we are the sum of our experiences, but I couldn’t help being struck by several stories I’ve seen lately as well as reflecting on my own life.

Have you ever dealt with averages? Maybe you have a gas mileage monitor on your car. You’ve likely noticed that it’s easier to bring an average down than up.

I’ve found the same to be true of our life on earth. Oh, I have more experiences to draw on in dealing with life. I have more knowledge now than when I was younger, but that doesn’t mean I’m necessarily better off overall.

There is no denying that I am now less than I was. Years, injuries, and diseases have taken their toll physically. Bad decisions, calamities, and regrets have taken their toll mentally and emotionally. I sometimes am reminded of something past, something I wish I could have back, and I physically cringe.

Weariness has become much more of a companion, a more frequent and unwelcome traveler on my road. He holds the back of my coat and pulls on it, making the steps I have yet to take harder and slower.

Someday he will hold tight, dig in his heels, and prevent so much as one more step.

In that moment, when he thinks he has won, I will slip through his grasp like smoke and appear in the arms of Jesus. I have that confidence, that sure knowledge that all of the weight that has slowed me down and worn me out will be left behind in a sin-riddled husk.

www.hdnicewallpapers.comBut those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.    Isaiah 40:31

There are still good days to be had. There are recent days of pleasure and satisfaction. Even though the weariness continues to come at me, I can keep going, because I know that “I can do all things through God Who strengthens me.”

Even better, I know that the day will come when weariness will be nothing but an erased memory as I stroll the streets of gold in the unfiltered presence of God! I know that I now struggle neither in vain nor alone.

I don’t know how anyone without that hope, without that Spirit of God residing in them can deal with the insults of life.

Are you struggling alone? Have you accepted Jesus’ payment for your sins? Have you accepted but don’t stay in touch with Jesus daily?

Just stop right now. Pray. Call out to Jesus and tell Him that you accept His gift of salvation. Ask Him to put His Spirit in your heart and power you up with His strength and love. He’s right there with you. He’s waiting, yearning for you to just talk to Him and invite Him into your life – forever.

Knocking at the Door


e] of David, as far as the artificial pool and the House of the Heroes. Nehemiah 3:16

This comes as part of the story of how the Israelites repaired their homeland after being set free from their captivity in Babylon. I can only imagine their thoughts at seeing these old, holy, revered places that they had only heard of. The House of Heroes. Wow!


My Alma Mater in Tiffin, OH

When I was an undergraduate I enjoyed a certain amount of success in the theatre department, although I wasn’t always successful. Times were good, times were a struggle. There was disappointment at having been looked over on occasion.


So, many years later, I went with my wife to a surprise dinner honoring my teacher, friend, and mentor, James Lee Austin. A young co-ed was there as part of a volunteer staff. She introduced herself and asked my name. When I told her, her eyes got big. “You’re Jeff King? THE Jeff King? I’ve heard of you. Wow!” It was kinda cool to get that reaction after a lot of years had gone by.

The point here is that all she saw was the House of Heroes. She didn’t see the let downs, the tears, the struggles.

I have to admit that I read a lot of stories, fiction and fact, involving people who end up as heroes. I watch and read and am caught up by the beauty of the story. I think of Saving Private Ryan (only one of a handful of movies at which a friend says men are allowed to cry at the end).

No one, including his family, knew what Ryan went through in the war. He was their hero, though. A good father and husband. In the war, he didn’t know that someday he’d visit a grave overlooking the shores of Normandy. All he knew was that he probably wasn’t going to get home alive.

To this day, I can only hope that someday I’ll be a hero. Right now, I can just hope that I’m a hero in the making. Maybe someday someone will take a look at my life and say, “He was quite a guy. I wish I could have met him.”

But right now, life is a struggle. It has been for a number of years. And isn’t that the point? Heroes don’t get to be heroes by giving up and going along on the cheap. Heroes go up against the odds. Heroes take the life God gives them and work it for all they’re worth. When they feel like the clock is ticking down to :00 with no hope, they ask God for the strength to suck it up just one more time.

Isn’t that what Jesus did? He knew what was coming His entire life, and He kept on going. Just one more period, one more quarter or inning. In Gethsemane He asked God to let Him take a knee. God said, “No. You’re the Starter…and the Finisher. Now put your helmet back on and get in there.”

Same for Peter, Paul, and all of the apostles. These are people I would like to meet. They are some of the biggest heroes who ever lived! Their lives were filled with trials, dangers, betrayal, and horrible deaths. Only John died in his old age.

If I could meet them and tell them they are my heroes, they’d probably put up a pretty stern statement against that idea. At the very least, they would maybe chuckle and think, “Yeah, some hero.” I would hope that they would take some comfort in being looked at that way. It would show them that all of their struggles were worth it.

So I hope I can be a hero some day. Even if I’m not around to hear about it. It would be good to know that everything I did was worth it. It would be good to know that I had an impact on someone else’s life.

HeroWhen you have the chance, say something nice. Do something nice. Do a small good deed. Do a heroic one. When you feel like your tank is empty, ask God to fill it. Then head back into the fray.

Dogs and Biscuits

Be strong & of good courage; do not be afraid or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.   Joshua 1:9

I love Norm-isms. Those are the pithy sayings of the character Norm from the TV series, Cheers. For today is Norm’s response to Sam asking how he’s doing today.


The things I do…

“It’s a dog-eat-dog- world out there, Sammy. And I’m wearing Milk-Bone underwear.”


When I was a service writer at a car garage, I’d greet the guys by asking, “Dog or biscuit?”

How’s your day? How’s your week, your life? Are you feeling like the dog or the biscuit? Whether you’re the dog or the biscuit right now, remember that everyone takes turns as the biscuit. When that happens, remember good, old Joshua. Even on your worst days and in your worst times, God is with you wherever you go.

Even King David had his bad days; really bad! But no matter how hard he was being chewed on, he kept his eyes on God.

Valley Shadow of DeathYea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. Psalm 23 :4

I’ve been close to death 4 times: heart attack in my 20’s, double-bypass in my 40’s, gangrene in my 50’s, and coming close to renal shut down just 6 months after the gangrene. On top of that has been bankruptcy and foreclosure. Joshua 1:9 has been a source of strength and comfort all along. I keep that and several others at the bottom of my prayer list.

Faint on tthe RoadThe Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul.   Psalm 121:7

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life…will be able to separate us from the Love of God, which is in Christ Jesus.   Romans 8:38-39

Wait on the Lord. Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart. Wait, I say, on the Lord!   Psalm 27:14

A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance, But by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken. Prov. 15:13

Do not fret…because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass. Cease from anger and forsake wrath. Do not fret – it only causes harm.  Psalm37: 7-8

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life…will be able to separate us from the Love of God, which is in Christ Jesus.   Romans 8:38-39

Those are the verses that have helped me get through those biscuit days. And when the wheel turns, when you are back to being the big dog, always remember…

Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.   Psalm 50:15

When I was finally pulling out of my nose dive, I made sure everyone knew that it was God Who brought me through it all. As bruised and battered as I was, I gave credit and glory to God for preserving me, for preserving my soul.

God loves being leaned on. He also loves to hear “Thank you!”

Thank God

It’s Rough Being Chosen

St PaulTherefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.  14 Do everything without grumbling or arguing, 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.”[a] Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky 16 as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain. 17 But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you. 18 So you too should be glad and rejoice with me.     Philippians 2:12-30

When St. Paul wrote this letter to the Philippians he was jailed on Rome. He had an inkling that his life was forfeit, but he still had hope of getting out alive. That didn’t happen.

Parting-of-the-Red-Sea1The Jews were God’s chosen people. It was rough duty. There was slavery in Egypt, the tortures of the Exodus as their joy of freedom was replaced by brushing up against death at the hands of the Egyptian army, killing thirst, and starvation. They were told to do ridiculous things, like going into the land of Canaan and defeat giants to take possession of that land.

Quite reasonably, they said, “Are you kidding? They’re huge! No way!” For that they were all condemned to die in the desert, leaving a trail of bodies and graves for 40 years until those naysayers were purged from the nation.

Jews have suffered throughout history for no other reason than that they were Jews! Christians these days suffer everything from bullying to rape, imprisonment, torture, and death for no other reason than we are Christians.

Being a believer, whether B.C. or A.D., is tough duty. We’re told to step out on faith and do ridiculous things: love your enemies, suffering is good for you – builds character, turn the other cheek, mercy and not judgment…the list goes on.


Jews Taking Refuge in Polish Forests

In the movie “Defiance” a group of people are living in the forests of Germany, having escaped the Nazi sweeps. Their leaders sneak into the Jewish slums and offer to lead them out. The older men resist, not wanting to antagonize their captors further. One rabbi sums up his experience, saying, “I know ve are da chosen people. Forgive me, but I vish God vould have chosen someone else.”


I’m sure more than one Jew has had the same thought over the centuries. Being chosen is rough duty.

For those who stuck it out in the Sinai wilderness, it ended up being a cool ride. It worked out because they learned their lesson as a people.

Joshua: “OK. Here’s what we’re gonna do. We’re going to get into formation around Jericho, and march around it once a day for a few days. On the last day, we march again, but this time we make a lot of noise at the end. The walls fall down and we go in and kill everyone. Whaddaya think?”

Having watched their elders drop in the desert one by one, their response was pretty much, “OK. Sounds good. I’m in.”

14 Do everything without grumbling or arguing, 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, ‘children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.’

Being chosen can sometimes be a rough deal. Sometimes it’s the Jews bringing it on themselves in the Old Testament. Sometimes it’s Satan coming after us like he did with Job. Sometimes we aren’t sure what it is coming from. But here’s the thing…

Stick with it and you’ll know His peace here on earth, if not prosperity. Christ warned us that we should expect trials; the students are not beyond the teacher. But we will have His peace, we will have eternity with Him.

Life in general is full of things that require effort, but are worth that effort. It’s rough being involved in greatness, but greatness is a pretty…great…place to be.Love In Heaven 01 1280X960 Love Friendship Wallpaper

Satan’s Favorite Sin

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality,[a] wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,   Romans 1:28-30 New King James Version

Pacino as SatanI had always thought it was Vanity. Al Pacino had the best line at the end of The Devil’s Advocate after deceiving Keanu Reeve’s character and him not having a clue.

“Vanity. Definitely my favorite sin.”

As of this morning, I’d say anything involving sex is Satan’s favorite sin. The following headline and article appear to support me: The Church of Satan believes that sex robots could save our society.

First, if the church of Satan says something is good, you can bet it isn’t. Then you have the article’s opening: Oddly, the founder of the church of Satan, Anton Lavey, predicted sex robots more than two decades ago – and today’s Satanists still believe they could save us all.

sexbotTheir founder, Anton Lavey, drew up a Five Point Plan back in the 80’s in which he recommended the use of “humanoids” as an outlet for people to do the nasty things they yearn for without involving other people. Here’s a direct quote from the COS:

Recognizing that the human animal often raises himself up throught the denegration of another, this would provide a safe outlet for such behavior. Have the lover of your dreams, regardless of your own prowess; every man a king who can purchase his own subject; or contrarywise, buy the master you wish to serve. Freedom of choice to satisfy your most secret desires with no-one to be bothered is now at hand. (Misspellings left as is)

“…buy the master you wish to serve.” Um…

And that isn’t all. Oh, no. Some crusaders are already looking to advocate for the rights of sexbots as sentient beings, needing protection. See Growing sophistication of sex robots is leading to moral and legal dilemmas, expert warns. And, by the way, whatever happened to proper use of capital letters in headlines and titles?

But I digress.

I saw the “Growing Sophistication” article last summer, and decided not to write about it. I already had written several articles in 2017 dealing either directly or indirectly on the topic and wanted to avoid overkill. This really is getting to be important, though. It’s the proverbial “Slippery Slope.” Warnings are needed before it starts sounding too normal.

Scarlett Johanson Bio Bot

SURVEY: Who thinks it’s about tendons & helping people and who thinks it’s about a Scarlett Johansson-bot that “wriggles?”

Other articles of mine in 2017 include Just Skin and Drones. The idea is that actual human flesh could be grown over a robot for that life-like feel. A quotation from that article: “This will be an advance past bio-bots ‘…made of living cells that can wriggle and walk.’”


A second line from my article: “I also recently saw an article on a company – I’m serious – that is developing child sex-bots.” Robotizing perversion.


You only have to be faster than one other person…

It’s Coming for You is about Artificial Intelligence being uploaded into robots, either for sex or, mostly, as hunters a la Terminator.


Friendly AlienAliens Likely to be Electronic Entities covered an article I read that proposed aliens might approach us as robots with Artificial Intelligence. I didn’t say I was buying that just yet, but then Satan is nothing if not creative. I think that anything calling itself an alien would be demonic, and that’s a theory widely held, going back decades. It explains certain things connected to UFO experiences, including after effects that are much like a possession. I also wonder about the Vatican be on record as preparing for our fellow alien brothers and sisters, both to minister to them and to be enlightened by them. That latter piece may require us to change our biblical beliefs. Again, according to Vatican personnel.

In Unforced Errors I wrote about the true nature of God’s love for us and the nature of real relationships. Relationships only mean something when both parties are there completely by choice. Sex with robots? Not even a person, let alone a willing participant.

Relationship is what everything is about! A sexual union between a man and a woman is symbolic of our union with God. It is union which allows us to create something outside of ourselves.

To take that and do anything else with it perverts God’s intent. Which is, of course, right up Satan’s alley.
