I was surfing channels in my car and stopped to listen to some of the most popular "christian" stations. It's really amazing how so much of their foundation is NO different from the ancient fertility religions. One could say, in fact, that the old fertility religions never went away - they just changed the mask they wear. Yesterday a mask of Baal and Aphrodite. Today, a mask of Jesus. Even their obsession on "children" and "the family" is just more fertility obsession. Because while God loves children and family, He didn't send Jesus - who never married or had physical children, and who told us we were required to leave even family if it ever got between us and God - to make what we can reproduce with our sexual organs the most important things in our lives. But you certainly wouldn't know that from listening to "christian" radio.
So why, then, do we let things like "christian" radio and the fertility worshippers with Jesus-masks on tell us whether we are "right" with God? Why listen to someone who's doing exactly the opposite of what Jesus said when they tell us what (they have decided) Jesus said?
What do you think?
