Evidence for Asherah*

Asherah has appeared paired with Yahweh in positive ways. Furthermore, the early eighth century BCE prophets do not condemn Asherah worship. The worship of Asherah was evidently acceptable before the Deuteronomistic reform movement gained momentum in the seventh century BCE, but since the text of the Bible was significantly composed or edited by the Deuteronomistic school or even later, this fact is not immediately apparent.

Detroit Churches Pray for ‘God’s Bailout’

complete with pics in the new york times there is an article on the greater grace temple in detroit which had three shiny new hybrid SUVs on the altar as the congregation was exhorted to pray for a bailout to save the auto industry.

Greater Grace, the largest church in Detroit, invited officials from the United Automobile Workers union to speak before Bishop Ellis gave his sermon, titled “A Hybrid Hope.” gotta love the title of that sermon, don't you?

in the art of alchemical magic or in pagan magic there are sigils used to represent that which is the focus of the working. i wonder how these devout christians would react if someone were to point out to them the magic they were working.

i have already written about the idol worship in front of the new york stock exchange in october with the 700 club laying on hands and praying at the bull.

what, oh what, is the world coming to? lol!

Say nothing of my religion. It is known to God and myself alone. Its evidence before the world is to be sought in my life: if it has been honest and dutiful to society the religion which has regulated it cannot be a bad one.
