WWW, March 2009 - Is the King James Version 100% correct, when the translation seems to indicate that JAH created creation about 6000 years ago, in a state of desolation?

"Yes", say the Creationist. I beg to differ, however.

Creationism", unlike the popular idea, is not "just" the knowledge that creation was created by the Creator. If that would be the case, I could have been labeled a "Creationist" myself. However, I am not. And still, I believe that Jah created creation and no I do not believe that he did that through Darwin, so to speak. I do not believe mankind comes from the proverbial monkey.

A creationist believes, however, using slogans like "the Bible is the Whole Truth", that God created creation in 6 days, about 6000 years ago. A creationist believes in the traditional doctrines that came to us through Augustine, the Vatikan and it's "Reformers". A Creationist believes, that "in the beginning", the first words of the Bible, is also the "first day" of the week described in the first chapter of Genesis.

And I beg to differ, Sirs!

First of all, the Bible does not say at all that "In the beginning was the first day" at all. In fact, Genesis starts with the words:

"In The Beginning, God Created The Heaven And The Earth. And The Earth Was Without Form, And Void, And Darkness Was Upon The Face Of The Deep." (Genesis 1:1,2a)

When you read on, you see that Jah wipes the darkness of the earth and makes a difference between day and night. That wiping away of the darkness is the first act of the "creation week", which I would rather call a re-creation week.

First of all, the word "was" is not necessarily translated in the right way. The word could also be "became". Whether you use the word "was", or "became", therefore, requires more than literally translating the first lines of Genesis.

When you translate the word as "was", you make Genesis say, that Jah created the earth without "form and void", or, as the Hebrew phrase goes, "Tohu va Bohu". This phrase is used in the Bible only a couple of times, so let's take a look where they are used as well.

Let's go to Isaiah, where Jah speaks about His judgments:

"He shall stretch out upon it the line of confusion, and the stones of emptiness" (Isaiah 34:11b)

Obviously, since you cannot "create destruction" and Tohu va Bohu does indicate destruction rather than a creative act, it is not right to translate the first lines of Genesis using the word "was" to describe the original state of creation "in the beginning".

But there is more usage of the word Tohu va Bohu. This next usage, also Isaiah quoting JAH, says this:

"For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I [am] the LORD; and [there is] none else." (Isaiah 45:18)

So here we have Jah Himself saying, that He did not create the earth "Tohu va Bohu". And since we already know, that the words describe a situation after the judgement of the Most High, we might get an indication as to what really happened, somewhere between "In The Beginning" and the first day of the week in Genesis.

Jeremiah helps us out. He was taken to that time, before mankind was created. He describes a situation that is in no way like the ones creationists describe when they make God in their image, a God that creates empty things. Take a look:

"I beheld the earth, and, lo, [it was] without form, and void; and the heavens, and they [had] no light. I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly. I beheld, and, lo, [there was] no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled. I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place [was] a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, [and] by his fierce anger. For thus hath the LORD said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end." (Jeremiah 4:23-27)

Obviously, we speak about a situation that is not the original creation, even though Jeremiah is taken to that time when the earth was Tohu va Bohu in Genesis 1:1. It is obvious, that the earth became Tohu va Bohu!

So, now we have Jah Himself saying that He did not create the earth in this situation, we have two accounts that tell us Tohu va Bohu is a situation after a judgement of Jah, and we have Jeremiah who speaks about this time in more detail.

Jeremiah specifically says "there is no man", but he also speaks about "cities". He speaks about a civilization on this planet before mankind was ever created!

Creationists deny all of this. They obscured the translation in the King James Version in the very first sentence of the very first chapter of the very first book, and with that, they have created God in their image: a God that cannot create anything, for you cannot create emptiness.

Now, other than the fact that it is more than interesting to realize that there were civilizations before mankind was created, it is equally so that the God of the creationists is not the God that wrote the Bible in the original language. And not only because it is an oxymoron to "create emptiness".

A couple of months ago I wrote about Sodomy, which most people think is another word for homosexuality where the Bible uses the word heteros to describe what the Sodomites were doing. Here, too, do we see that very same God of the creationists at work. Their denial of the fact that there are more intelligent beings than just mankind, leads to their painting of a God Who makes people pay for His... mistakes!

We see the same God, who is sorry that He created mankind and since He seems to be unable to master time, He can do nothing but wiping out His creation with a flood. That is not the Almighty JAH that I know, that is not the perfect JAH that I know!

We can go on, for example, and look to the battles of Israel against the Canaanites as described in Exodus and so on. We can look at JAH telling the Israelites to kill other human beings, or we can look at the original text and read how these were not human beings at all but descendants of the Nephilim, unholy offspring of angelic beings with daughters of men.

All of this, however, is lost to the creationists who do not seem to be able to grasp that although mankind is created in the Image of JAH, this by no means means that (wo)man is the only intelligent being in creation and that human civilization is all that ever was in Jah's creation.

It is clear, that the KJV is not 100% correct. The mistranslations start already in the very first line. How important is it, to know Jah personally in order to understand just what is written in the Bible, especially when you consider these mistranslations? Asking this question is answering it.

WWW, February 2009 - In a recent press release, the group behind the website "God Hates Fags" announced their plans to travel to the Netherlands and picket the burial of nine people who recently lossed their lives in a plane crash at Amsterdam Airpost.

What drives these "Christian Taliban" and what can they teach us?

The group is headed by a man called Fred Phelps and calls itself the "Westboro Baptist Church" (WBC). They are often in the news as they go from place to place witch picket signs saying things like "God Hates Fags" and "Thank God For Aids". Special places of interest to the WBC are funerals, perferably that of dead soldiers and those who they love to hate the most: (perceived) homosexuals.

In itself, the group is predominantly one family under the guidance of the patriarch. Their appearance is usually seen as funny or offensive, they're a welcome guest in many talk shows as they guarantee a piece of sensation.

They're an obvious cult, as their website clearly indicates. They urge this visitor to "carefully read every word of this web site, along with the entire Bible", a clear indication they do need to explain a little bit before the innocent visitor can open the Book of Books and, guided by the Holy Spirit of God, read what's in there.

Just recently, the group announced that they would go the Netherlands and hold a demonstration at the funeral of the victims of a plane crash that recently took place at Amsterdam Airport. Cliock for Larger ImageNine people crashed in an airplane from Turkish Airlines in what the WBC sees as a judgement of God because of... homosexuality.

It is unlikely, though, that the WBC will actually be able to physically enter the Netherlands. Recently, they were banned from entering the UK as part of the European War on Freedom of Speech.

However, their Freedom of Speech is not the issue. There are questions more important for those interested in Christianity. Questions such as: how can it be, that the WBC claims how "homosexuality" is the reason for "God" to make a plane crash of Turkish Airlines at Amsterdam Airport?

One word: Calvinism.

The WBC is a rather extreme example of this "Christian" philosophy that has been responsible for terror regimes throughout the last centuries. Regimes, which make the Taliban in Afghanistan look like keepers of paradise.

In a video entitled "What Love Is This", recently reviewed by the CRC, well-known author Dave Hunt revealed some of the terror that Calvinists released on the people they had political power over. But we can also look at the Dominionists, the neo-evangelical version of this form of political Christianity, Sharia Style.

Basically, Calvinists and Dominionists believe that they have to create a "Christian World Order", wherein what the Bible calls the Fruit Of The Spirit is forced on people by law, with extreme penalties in cases of trangressing these so-called "Divine Laws".

We have well-known cases such as Rick Warren teaming up with the President of Rwanda who was recently accused of war crimes, Pat Robertson calling for the extermination of leaders which oppose the United States of America ("God's Own Country", as they say), all of them associating with presidents and others in circles of power.

We also have the Westboro Baptist Church with their "pastor" Fred Phelps and an army of footsoldiers who all love to hate just about everyone that doesn't follow their Calvinist form of "Christianity". Cliock for Larger ImageWith a smile on their face, they will tell you that you go to hell, just because God created you to go to hell. And, as the picture shows, they will even help you getting there with pleasure.

Carnal pleasure.

Carnal minds define the Calvinist and Dominionists. Carnal minds define the members of the group behind the "God Hates Fags" website and church. And no, not just because of their obvious focus on sexuality and frequent use of the word "Sodomites" to describe homosexuals, about which we will talk a little bit further one.

The Carnal Calvinists are spiritually handicapped, spiritually disabled even. They take the Bible, a translation of copies of manuscripts who have been long gone, but it is the only thing they can physically touch with their carnal bodies. They lack the Presence and Teaching of the Holy Spirit, without Whom we can never understand what the Bible actually teaches.

They think, that the Bible is all about the State. They think, that when the Bible speaks about "authorities" and "leaders", when the Bible gives guidelines for Church gathering and spiritual livity in general, the Bible gives this as a commandment to be obeyed by those under the command of the leaders who interpretate the Divine Laws...

They totally ignore the fact that the Bible says all of us are living in sin, and that it takes a spiritual rebirth to be able to receive the Works of the Holy Spirit that makes our carnal sins become less and less important. They claim that the Bible wants people to create states with heavy laws that none can keep, laws which the Bible explains are fruits of the works that the Holy Spirit works out in those who believe upon the Lord Jesus Christ.

Equally, they deny the fact that God did not destroy Sodom because of homosexuality at all. Sodom, namely, is the biggest argument for Fred Phelps and his Calvinist brethren to go around the world and tell everyone that God is going to destroy the world because of "Sodomy" and "Sodomites".

And this is where it gets tricky. Because they are right, the acts of Sodom are indeed the reason the the Creator to come down Himself and Personally downstroy this wicked shitstem.

Therefore, it is extremely important to find out just what was going on in Sodom, even though the answer might not be what your avarage Pastor, President or Priest may tell you.

The Bible uses the word "heteros" to describe the sexual acts of the Sodomites. They were not homosexuals, even though some of them have might been and even though it is true that homosexuality is condemned as sinfull in the Bible. That is not the issue here. The issue is that homosexualioty in itself is not the reason for the Most High to condemn this world shitstem and call her "Mystery Babylon, Mother of Harlots and Abominations". (MORE INFO)

The Westboro Baptist Church is an extreme, and therefore very clear example where a carnal view on the physically tangible Scriptures lead to. Not just to a rather ridiculous idea that is so obviously wrong that they cannot be taken seriously. Not just to an entertaining sight of a dysfunctional family dressed as up a Church.

What this family does, is just a small version of what the Dominionists and Calvinists are doing at large. They would love to impose their ridiculous ideas on humanity by law, just like the fighter jets impose the ideas of the world elite by bombing the hell out of people in the name of that very same "White European Anglo Saxon Christianity".

What this family, this cult dressed up as a "Church" does, is just an extreme version of what carnal minds are doing at large. Without any guidance from the Holy Spirit, not hindered by a spiritual identity caused by a born again situation, they take the Black Book and make their own carnal sense out of it.

They do so to their own judgement. They also do so as an example for all.
