To the editor:
Why is it uncomfortable if not unbearable to listen to a church pastor sermon? The words they use appear to be from the sacred Bible. So? The offensive feeling of their sermons is due to their deplorable trick of “fitting” bible words into undying ancient pagan superstitions.
Bible words, heaven, g-o-d, soul, spirit, devil etc. are a large round wooden peg. Superstitions are a massive red hot block of iron with a small square hole. Before the sermon, the pastor turns his back to the assembly and pulls out a large brass hammer and smashes the round wooden peg into the square hole. Pastors destroy the peg and the honest meaning of Bible words.
The pagan superstitions, the block of iron, is unharmed. He slides the hammer back in his robe and presents the pagan superstitious ideas (and dates) as being “Christianized.” Thus Bible words are magically “spiritualized” by the iron of superstition.
The assembly is in awe.
The “unenlightened, spiritually forsaken” person sees that the peg does not “fit” while smoldering in the hot iron. Splinters are strewn all about the floor. He cannot understand why the congregation is applauding to an obvious dishonest “spiritual” trick. The pastor does not even attempt to hide the splinters. At one point, the hammer falls from the “spiritual” robe and, well, nothing.
A local pastor will kick the hammer away. A pope of Rome holds it high.
The man whom the “spirit” has “abandoned” is confused and bewildered and asks, “Don’t you see?” “Yes! Is not freedom of religion awesome?”
An example of this pathetic pastor trick is the pagan superstition known as the immortal soul. This is a pagan superstition. The words immortal and soul are Bible words. They are never seen together in the same passage of the entire book, never. The immortal soul superstition has its earliest beginnings from ancient Egypt. Any encyclopedia gives the accepted version for this idea to two Greek men, Socrates and Plato. These men “invented” the idea.
This pagan superstitious lie came from the minds of men hundreds of years after the entire “Old” portion of the Bible was complete. It is an idea that has nothing to do with the bible. Why then does it seem so obvious to so many to “fit” into all church pastor franchise businesses? Millions have been fooled by the hammer trick. Look closely, you will see the splinters.
