You've probably heard the news that the Biblical 'Rapture' is supposed to happen tomorrow (Saturday), May 21, 2011.
A minister from the group Family Radio Worldwide has raised a lot of attention lately, campaigning from city to city with the message that the Rapture is coming this Saturday. Those who have accepted Christ will ascend to Heaven, the narrative goes, while those who have not will be "left behind."
It's all supposed to happen this Saturday.
signs that the collapse of our modern world has already begun."
While it would be nice if the Rapture happened in one instant,
the frustrating truth is that we are all witness to the long,
drawn-out transition in human history that will see the collapse of
evil (corporations, rogue governments, etc.) and a new awakening in
the human mind and spirit.
Much of the Biblical scripture is, of course, written in the form of a metaphorical lesson. What is meant by accepting Christ is, in a larger sense, the idea of embracing love and compassion in your heart rather than pursuing greed, destruction and selfish desires.
Most of the human world today operates on principles of greed and destruction. That's the pharmaceutical industry, the FDA, the chemical manufacturers and even how most of the top CEOs clawed their way to the top of the corporate ladder.
That system of exploitative self interest will not last. It will sooner or later collapse along with much of what we now call "modern human civilization." The truth is that we are living through the collapse right now. It has already begun, and it will continue for quite a few more years before there is a real awakening.
From observing the state of our
world today, I have no doubt things are going to get a lot worse
before they begin to turn around and get better.
It is a race of arrogant little children who play with
nuclear power (and nuclear weapons), who rape the planet of its
resources and who endanger all forms of natural life on the planet.
These are the traits of an infant race that hasn't yet learned how
to act like adults.
have to deal with the mass chemical contamination of the human race,
the oceans, the waterways and virtually all the agricultural land in
the world. We have deforested the Amazon, ravaged ocean ecosystems,
burned through most of the world's petroleum supply, and crippled
basic human rights through oppressive governments. In the eyes of
God, human civilization has so far proved itself to be a wretched
bunch of little children with virtually no understanding of the true
nature of the universe (and no respect for life).
In one Biblical moment, all the good people ascend to a higher realm of spirituality while all the evil people are left to suffer with each other on the material plane. It has a kind of poetic justice to it. But I'm afraid that very little in our universe is so instantly gratifying.
The Rapture is simply not a
weekend event. It is a transitional time when human civilization
goes from being a moronic infant race of mindless destroyers to a
slightly wiser, more adult race that begins to truly embrace the
deeper truths about life, spirit and reality.
There are more than a few false christians
running around these days - people who go to church on Sunday but
betray their fellow man Monday through Saturday. They treat their
own bodies like junk food repositories, violating one of the most
important tenants of religious instruction, which is to treat your
body as a temple, not a chemical playground.
I enjoy the berries, for one thing. And I don't mind spending another few years inhabiting a physical body. It might also be amusing to sit back and watch all the lower morons of humanity try to figure out what to do as a Biblical transition unfolds. Plus, on top of that, I've got plenty of zombie ammo.
Shooting zombies does not
violate the Ten Commandments, I've been told, because they are
beings of darkness.
But the language of the Bible is sometimes a riddle. It's not always a literal explanation. Adam didn't necessarily take a bite out of a physical apple, for example. That Garden of Eden story was allegory for a far deeper overview of good versus evil. The "forbidden fruit" was almost certainly not a piece of fruit.
The "Tree of Knowledge" was probably not a physical tree.
Although many people can certainly interpret the Bible literally
(and some choose to do so), it is readily apparent that its
teachings hold far deeper meanings and lessons that are not readily
evident if you take every word literally.
you will surely see by Sunday, May 22, that interpretation was a
misinterpretation of the scripture, not something plainly written on
is a judgment, or a "karma" if you will, that stays with us beyond
this earthly lifespan. The decisions we make - to honor life or
destroy it; to assist others or betray them; to help others versus
only helping ourselves - become part of our "galactic record." And
the impact of those decisions will no doubt come back to us many
times over, either positive or negative, depending on what we have
chosen to pursue.
The protests of the soulless science skeptics, the criticisms of the
mainstream journalists and the threats by all
the pharma and
chemical companies who we have called out as destroyers of life on
our planet are but minor distractions in the bigger picture. Those
sad souls will have to answer for their own sins against life. And
the Hell they are creating for themselves is a Hell I would not wish
upon any being.
And I'm not afraid to call
out the mindless, soulless agents of evil in the scientific
community, or government, or the corporate world. I'm not afraid to
tell the truth because I know that we will all ultimately be judged
on the truth, not the fictions some people attempt to weave. For
however long I am blessed with life on this planet, I intend to use
it wholly in the protection of other life on our planet.
