Did Princess Celestia Destroy the Illuminati?

This is absolutely the most ridiculous thing I'll ever talk about on this blog, but I absolutely have to share it somewhere.

This isn't a very serious post, just a silly random thought. Whenever My Little Pony comes up in conspiracy theory discussions, people often point out the obvious thing:

EDIT: Oh yeah, this isn't my image.

This is a flashback from... either, before Ponyville (where most of the show takes place) was founded, or right after people had begun building it. This is from a long time ago, anyway. This flashback takes place in Canterlot, the big ritzy "royal" area where Princess Celestia lives, and where I would not. (Can't stand that ritzy kind of atmosphere.)

The red arrow is pointing to a symbol, can you guess what it is? The obvious implication is that the tent belongs to the Illuminati, given that their symbol is on it. But what does this really mean?

Celestia rules Equestria, and especially the place where she lives, Canterlot. Celestia's territory far outweighs what the Illuminati have - a single tent. Also notice that Celestia is sitting on a giant, brightly-colored chariot-like vehicle, being pulled by servants (not to mention ruling an entire kingdom) while the Illuminati tent is shoved off to the side, dimly-colored and dark. Everybody's facing away from the eye, which has obvious psychological implications. It's glaring at Celestia, but notice the eye on the back wheel is glaring right back at it. I'm serious, look - it looks exactly like an eye, and it's staring right at the other eye.

The Illuminati don't play an important part in Canterlot. They've already been reduced to one tent that's not getting much attention. What's more is that in modern-day Canterlot, after everything stopped being old and fading and yellow, you don't see that tent at all. They're an ancient thing of the past in Equestria.

______________________________________________________________

With things like all the magic references, Twilight's cutie mark/hexagram and Rainbow Dash's cutie mark/lightning bolt, I'd think that -- if anything, of course -- this show would support an Illuminati agenda. But now that I think about it, Twilight's cutie mark really looks bent/twisted compared to normal hexagrams, and RD's cutie mark is reversed, at least on one side (right-down, left, right-down - not left-down, right, left-down), and with the Illuminati symbolism above... Do you think this show could actually somehow be anti-Illuminati?..

You can't just go preaching to people on TV these days (don't get me started), you have to have some give and take with the elites' agendas if you want your idea to go anywhere, and hiding a message of friendship, kindness, that believing in things you can't explain is fine, and your friends who think that way can help you see them (see Twilight's monologue near the end), hope (which the Illumainti hate), etc, amidst a few random symbols thrown around (eye, owl, etc) with some magic references (will appeal to today's already occult-influenced audiences) seems like a very sneaky way to get the point across in today's world. I'm not sure if that assessment is entirely correct - I'm not necessarily green-lighting the show for you conspiracy nuts, but that's really something to think about, I think.

I wonder if any bronies will find my blog because of this. Hello there.

You know how unbelievers always complain that the churches only talk about the nice stories and don't get into the nitty-gritty of the Bible? A passage they often cite is the one "where that guy sends out bears after those kids!"

First of all the original word for "kids" that's used can also be translated as "young men", thus young adults.

Second, "the guy" is Elisha.

Third, the internet will be glad to know that this passage was indeed mentioned in today's church service! We read a passage involving Elisha, and during the sermon, the passage about the bears came up.

I'm often surprised by how firmly (friendly, very welcoming, but firmly) my church stands by actual Scripture. I've heard several horror stories about churches today. Everything the internet says about Christianity, my church basically disproves on a weekly basis. I assume there are others out there, too. I just thought I'd point out that yes, Christians do sometimes read the Bible, even the unpopular stuff...

Calling Out Occultism in Black Metal Again

I had a dream a couple weeks ago that I found an occult-influenced CD, but the artwork looked cool (an old trick I fell for many times), so I convinced myself it was still okay to listen to.

Something strange happened in my house afterwards, but I can't remember what. It might have been an argument. Then the whole area around me started to change to something else.

The dream sort of repeated itself, with me finding an even worse CD, but it sounded cool, so I kept listening to it. The listening experience manifested as a walk through a street in my town. It was nighttime, dimly lit, etc. and eventually I saw a giant demon, hanging dead from something. The sight scared me so much, I gave up listening to the CD and woke up.

That's basically what happens, really; the horrified feeling you'd naturally experience if you saw a physical demon, first of all, then you found a carcass hanging in a doorway, is very similar to the feeling rooted inside of your psyche after listening to that negative stuff, though of course it's more subtle when you're still listening to it. I seriously can't stress enough how bad the satanic end of black metal really is for you. What it plays up as "strength" is actually "strong" feelings of sadness, of despair, of longing for death, and while it may sound good at first, and may indeed be performed by talented musicians, it's not worth listening to it, considering the psychological and physical effects of it.

I experienced spiritual things like beings communicating with me that seemed benevolent, projections (incl astral), visions, etc. I felt this was a validation of my spirituality. What it actually was - much like the "strength" and "sadness" I mentioned before - was the complete opposite. It made clear my spirituality, by poisoning it and afflicting me with negative emotions.

I truly hope this post will finally expose that entire scene, and its spiritual poison, and that somebody will see the truth through this blog. Of course there's good stuff in black metal, but nobody will look at the rest of the black metal scene, the popular stuff is what's full of this negativity.

It is for that reason I gave a rather big list awhile back of Christian bands of various styles. And there are way more than I listed there; it's just to get you started. I may update that someday. If you want good spirituality, pray to God. Christ can save you, and even though many evil types think it, the devil and his demons cannot kill you once you become Christian. You are protected by God, and He will not let those negative beings hurt you. It's up to you to decide.

And I pray that you make the right decision. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Society Doesn't Understand Christianity!

Here is a real quote somebody wrote about Christians:
Ppl are sadly proud of themselves for knowing a fake story in a storybook. These are the same ppl who enjoy the smell of their own farts.

It's funny on the surface, sure. Why, this person's calling Christians (thus, me) out on our intellect, and they can't even spell "people"! This person is so stoopid, they think Christians like to smell their own farts!

But when you get down to it, things like this aren't really funny. First of all, people's "stupidity" / ignorance is NOT funny, and second, this is a bad sign of how things are. Is this really what that person thinks Christians are like? What else do people think about Christianity?

There's the same meaningless, boring, baseless rhetoric that all pseudo-intellectual people seeking to mock Christians or make themselves appear smart use, typically in internet comment sections. But this is the first time I've seen one this bad. The person who wrote this works at a counseling office somewhere, and has a child.

People, in fact, think all kinds of crazy things about Christianity that make no sense. Sure what they say applies to some Christians; you could say just about anything and it'll apply to some people in a group. That's only logical. I'm sure that somewhere out there, there are a few Christians who enjoy sniffing their own flatulence, and there are likely some in that person's belief system who do the same. That doesn't mean it applies to everybody, but people will make it apply to everyone!

You can make a few conclusions... All Christians believe in Jesus. All fans of a band enjoy listening to them. All fans a movie series enjoy watching it. Everything else beyond these (unnecessarily) obvious conclusions is speculation.

Christianity has nothing to do with sniffing flatulence, blind adherence to whatever you hear, "just not hearing about" other viewpoints, throwing logic out the window (Christianity is logically sound!), condemning everybody, getting rich, political corruption, being "paranoid" about evil forces (they're real whether you notice them or not!), being a party-pooper, making out with your cousins, being stuffy old mean parents, or anything else people associate with it!

Interestingly enough, Christianity teaches the exact opposite of everything people associate with it, INCLUDING, and ESPECIALLY, blindly adhering to whatever you hear. If these people read the Bible (a book of truth! Truth sets you free, not enslaves you!) they would understand that.

Also, the Bible is not a "storybook".

Good Article on Psychic Abilities

http://www.heavenlymanna.net/christianArticle.php?article_id=361

Obviously, I didn't write this, but I felt like you should see it anyway. Check it out.

Imaginary Friends?

You're all probably wondering, "Are you ever going to write about metal again?" Yeah, one of these days.

So anyway, this is a post about imaginary friends and tulpas. From, like everything else here, a Christian perspective.

In theory, there's nothing wrong with the basic idea of an imaginary friend. There's nothing wrong with interacting with something that doesn't exist. Now, here's the problem: you have to be careful. 

At first, these beings are usually imaginary. But it's all too easy for negative forces that are real to get in there, and impersonate your imaginary friend. This isn't crazy of me to say, either. Back when I was into some occult stuff, there were beings/voices that I was almost certain were real, but there were one or two I knew were false. I purposely imagined those. But then they started to feel more real to me.

It happened really slowly, too. I knew they (the latter one(s)) were imaginary, but then I began to wonder. Why? I don't know. Eventually I didn't know that they weren't real anymore; I just started wondering. Eventually I just accepted that they were real, and what they became were misleading and deceptive, just like the real ones. This is a real phenomenon.

Quick note: I'm now aware that dealing with beings like that, which are real, is forbidden. Leviticus 19:31, Leviticus 20:6, Deuteronomy 18:9-14

Which leads to my next point. When they become real, that's when there's a problem. I mean, in theory, a "good" spirit has the capability to interact with you like that, but I have NEVER seen an instance of it. It's ALWAYS deceptive, demonic beings like the ones that interacted with me.

Tulpas in modern terms are basically the same thing as imaginary friends when you get down to it, but they appear a little more real, and can act without your 100% conscious command. Again, there's nothing theoretically wrong with this. It's not idolatry as one site I saw said, neither are imaginary friends, but you have to be even more careful with tulpas anyway. There is the very real possibility of negative beings entering in situations like that and taking control. It'd be even more subtle with a tulpa, because you're not (always) (consciously) controlling it. There's no real telling when a negative being could come in and how obvious its influence could be to you.

So, if I were you, I'd just avoid these ideas altogether, but I personally, won't explicitly forbid them. But I do recommend that you avoid them. And if you feel like you really need them, just be extremely, extremely careful. Enjoy them, but be careful. Most of you have no idea how deceptive those beings can be if something gets in there, and when you finally get the guts to kick out the negative beings if they appear... you'll feel pretty lousy afterwards, left with a lot of sticky negative essence and loneliness. May God bless, protect, and guide you all according to His perfect will. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Clearing Up Misconceptions (Progressivists)

I was reading a "progressive" Christian page recently, and I was honestly appalled at what I was reading.

These statements weren't just different interpretations of Scripture like the age of the Earth or something, these were literal blasphemy.

I would like to point out before I get into this that I am not a fundamentalist looney old preacher, I am a (young-ish) metal fan who used to be into some occult stuff and has come to accept controversial Biblical views over several years. And even if I were the former, my individual status still wouldn't invalidate God's word.

1) Gay marriage and gay sexual activities don't go against God's will?  (Genesis 1:28-29, Mark 10:6-7, Leviticus 18:22) I don't hate gay people. (Also, I will not disclose my own orientation; it's not important.) Hatred is murder (1 John 3:15) and I will not judge somebody for their preferences. You could be attracted to any number of things, gay, straight, normal, weird; what matters to God is how you handle those attractions (see end of paragraph). God's marriage is different from what humans consider marriage. God's marriage is... about love to a degree, sure, but isn't just about a union; it's also about reproduction, having children, which only biologically happens between a man and a woman. This is not discrimination. This isn't about holding back people of other genders, it's just the very basic definition of what marriage is. A deaf person wouldn't have much place in a record store; a blind person at an art gallery; it's not discrimination against them, it's just what the idea is about, and they just don't fit it, the VERY same principle applies to God's definition of marriage. It's NOT about hatred, it's about what marriage exactly is! The Bible is God's word to us, and He's clearly not too happy about gay marriage. But don't be mistaken, heterosexuals also have VERY clearly-defined rules that all would do well to learn and keep in mind. Some people are called to flat-out celibacy (could be homosexuals' calling too?). It's not about gays vs straights, it's about living a holy life, which everybody is to do, homosexuals included.

2) There isn't a Hell?  Luke 16:19–31, Matthew 18:34-35, Matthew 3:12, Matthew 13:30, Revelation 20:14-15, Revelation 20:9-10 This does not mean that God isn't loving! He sent His own Son to be crucified on a cross for you! He doesn't want you to experience that, and takes no pleasure in sending anyone there (Ezekiel 18:31-32), but He will do so - He has warned you many, many times, He has sent His Son and told you EVERYTHING you need to do to have eternal life. Literally all you have to do is accept these things into your heart, and you will never have to experience it! He is preserving your free will, while throwing you every possible lifeline to save you! This is God's love, that He wants to save even the lowest of the low, but will not force them (since everybody complains about "forcing" beliefs...) He wants so, very much to save you from Hell. But Hell does exist.

3) Jesus isn't the only way to Heaven?  John 14:6, 1 Peter 4:3 (". . . and abominable idolatries"), Galations 5:19-21 (". . . idolatry and witchcraft") This can't be any clearer. We're to only worship the Holy Trinity, (in the right way! Deuteronomy 12:30-31), we're supposed to fully acknowledge and accept Jesus as our savior, and follow Him. The first verse I mentioned here is very clear! Jesus is the ONLY way to Heaven! This isn't to offend people who worship other gods, I point this out so that any of you who do will realize this truth, and come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9), God and I want to see you in Heaven, in eternal peace and comfort! But you need to accept Jesus as your savior, and you (progressivists included) need to reject the false notion that there are other ways to Heaven. Jesus is the ONLY way to Heaven.




I think that covers it for now, but these are basic Biblical truths that are being compromised here. Just because these statements are "old" doesn't mean they're "outdated" - God's word is never outdated! Times may change, but God's will is consistent throughout all of it. Don't listen to wolves in sheep clothing trying to spread false ideas. Listen to God's holy word in the Bible, with genuine, heartfelt prayer-guided reflection. May you all be blessed and guided to God's truth, according to His perfect will! In Jesus' name. Amen.
