Not Fatalism

Our doctrine is divine cynicism, not fatalism.

Nothing prevents anyone from being like a kid, delighted to explore this life. In it we find all manner of clues and cues to our Father’s love and mercy, His infinite wisdom. Remember, the natural world isn’t fallen, so what we find there is pointing back to Eden, if we can just turn on our heart-led sense of awareness. What we also learn to discern from our hearts is the mess mankind has made of the unfallen world.

We we’re put here for a job, a divine calling to duty. That job is to pass through the Flaming Sword at the Gate of Eden, to discern what really matters morally in the first place. When we gaze upon the vast works of humanity, we can see that most of it will not be here after Christ returns. Our duty is to live according to the revelation, a revelation that includes a corrective of just what kind of works will leave an eternal imprint. It’s a huge task simply because the vast majority of humanity isn’t doing it. Theirs is futility; ours is eternal.

We have a lot to do, and it’s the most fun you can have in this life. Have you not seen how Creation itself responds to our piddling efforts and plays along with the game? We are blessed to become acquainted with the person of Creation and be friends. But God Himself also throws out gifts to encourage the play, miracles of blessing that show anyone watching that we aren’t really a part of the common human fate in this world. He’s bestows His marks of favor on those who embrace the Flaming Sword.

You have to work for your just release from this life. It’s the easiest and hardest work anyone can do. Fatalism? Feh; we’re just playing and having a good time in anticipation of eternity.

    As bad as New Age is, it does a good job of emphasizing that the problem is with humanity, not the universe or the spirit realm(s). That fact gets drowned out hard by spirit evolution poopytalk, bad history, and a weird form of pseudo-spiritual scientism.

    The New Age movement shares much with the Greens. They both understand that humans are a problem, but they reject the the concept and claims of the Creator.
