666, the Pastor, God, Jesus, the Lexus & the Rolex times three

Shocked.

CNN headlines proclaim: Pastor says he is “God”.

Do the numbers, 666, and God, belong in the same sentence? Empircally, yes, both are 3(s), so is the Holy Trinity. Huh, maybe that’s why it’s reported he has three Rolex watches?

The Church of the non-judgmental. Catchy, no?

Yes, until the stories/rumors of suppression of other faiths.

What is true and what isn’t?

Does the Pastor claim to have the same spark of Divine Light arguably within all of us, the essence of God? Is that what he means?

Does anyone know what he truly means vs. what the media is telling us what he means?

Read it, read it, read it, and tell us your thoughts:

Veggie Tales teaches us that God would give us the power to love our enemies, love, all encompassing light, yes or no? Are there fine lines? Is there room for judgment? You be the judge.

  1. To me this sounds like a man that just wants power and attention. No one can be who he claims to be, “Jesus after the cross.” I think he is claiming to be much more than to just having the “spark of Divine Light arguably within all of us”. I think he is claiming to be Jesus. Which I think is delusional, and he should be checked out by a psychiatrist before he is allowed to continue to preach to people. I think that all pastors, or priests, or anyone who is in a position of authority should have an extensive work up on their mental health. Most people are followers, they will do almost anything that people tell them to do, so I think that it is important for people in a position of authority to have a clean bill of health, or at least be treated for the disorders that they do have. Especially since he claims that prophets spoke to him, which might have happened when he was addicted to heroin, but I don’t know. I’m a very skeptical person so it is hard for me to believe that someone spoke to him in a dream. Maybe it’s true, maybe it’s not, or maybe he just wants to believe that God spoke to him. There is nothing wrong with wanting to believe in something, so maybe this religion is good for these people. It just sounds a little fishy to me, especially when he claims to be the antichrist. When I hear the word “antichrist” I think, the opposite of Christ, so that to me means the Devil. So how can Antichrist, be Christ after the cross?

    I don’t know about the rest of you but I was taught that there are distinct sins, and that you can “do wrong’ in God’s eyes. But he will also forgive you if you ask for it. So I don’t understand how this man can say that there is no devil, or sin. I don’t know, I guess there are different ways that you can interpret the bible, and everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I just don’t understand it.

  2. Very intricate response. Do you mind if we start from the bottom?

    “Distinct sins”….”you can ‘do wrong’ in God’s eyes.”

    There are so many branches of religion and spirituality, we like to read and read and read and watch and watch and watch and find what messages come up in common again and again.

    So far: “loving kindness”

    Now, I guess that means that we too believe you can do wrong in God’s eyes because we could write you a pretty long list on “evil”, the opposite of good, that we consider “wrong” not right, the opposite of attracting the positive force within the Universal Law of Attraction.

    But seriously, yes, to us as humans there is wrong. Is God above us? Does he see this life as a dress rehearsal so that it is not the finite acts but the growth or lack thereof?

    To us, we too believe a wrong is a wrong is a wrong: the cardinals: harm no others, property or physically.

    Seems so simple.

    “666” used to send shivers of fear, glimpses of bad horror movies. Is it a must now that the followers also stamp on 666? For decades now there have been publications, news accounts, prophecies of the one who will walk among us, a false prophet, bearing 666, and untold numbers will flock to him.

    Then again, we have free will, non? The power of collective conscious, positive thought, ahem, excuse me, but even prayer? Does not the Mind & Life Institute now measure the effect of these brainwaves? What about the miracle of water arisen from Japan?

    Ah, we digress, the point is, as much as we too want to be non-judgmental, a wrong is still a wrong in our feeble minds.
