I was born and raised in a non – Christian country, India, from where I migrated to Canada when I was twenty years old. Although I had more than a passing knowledge of the three main religions of India – Hinduism, Buddhism and Islam, I had little or no knowledge of Christianity or the Bible. In Canada I was initially introduced to Christianity or a form of it, mainly through television. Back then in the early 80’s I watched some religious programming featuring such heavyweight televangelists as Jerry Falwell, Oral Roberts and the occasional Billy Graham crusade (the choice of this word, crusade, has to be the biggest Freudian slip of all time or it has some sinister import, I can’t figure out which.) Even back then these gentlemen came across more as snake oil salesmen than men of God and therefore I concluded that Christianity had much in common with the organized religions of India; it too was a lucrative business from which the upper hierarchy made a handsome living while convincing the masses that they were laboring on their behalf. Heck if I were given a Lear jet or two and a multimillion dollar mansion or two; I too could suffer myself to labor on behalf of lost sinners.
So my first impression of Christianity and the Bible was formed by viewing these self proclaimed men of God on TV. Later on I started discovering that the world was not quite what it appeared to be, historically and politically speaking. I came to understand that Orwellian Double Speak was all around me, that the world of The Matrix movie was far closer in reality to the world that CNN presented night after night. I began to realize that for my own well being it was essential that I neither believe nor disbelieve any information that was presented to me without studying and analyzing it for myself. It dawned on me that I just could not trust the seemingly trustworthy anchors from any of the news services or doctors or professors and even my own family members to present me with a picture of the ‘real world’. In time I came to understand history and politics in a much different light than I had ever done in the past. Later it became apparent that I needed to apply the same critical eye to religion as well. How could I trust that the Bible actually taught as doctrines what these 'ministers' claimed it taught as doctrine? Thus began a journey on which I am yet far from my destination but for the sake of brevity let me say this about the Bible. I have studied this book for many years now and it is my unshakable belief that any serious student of history who neglects to include the Bible in his studies is not at all serious about history.
The Bible is truly a book of mystery that contains within its pages the esoteric history of man and is the only book that provides accurate knowledge of the past, present and future; whether you believe it or not is entirely up to you. Just as it is safe to assume that we will not hear the real news on the nightly news; so it stands to reason that the history contained within the pages of this book will not be found in churches or on TV. We can well understand that those personages that are presented by the mainstream media to be the greatest proponents of ‘Freedom’ are the very same personages that are working most determinedly to enslave us all. So it is in the arena of religious thought, those that are labeled by mainstream media as ‘fundamental Christians’ are in fact, anything but Christian. Pat Robertson has a lot more in common with Adolph Hitler than he does with Jesus. Those of his ilk are far closer to the antichrist than they are to Jesus Christ. There is a concerted effort in the mainstream media to paint a picture of Christ in our minds based upon these caricatures that portray themselves as 'fundamental Christians'. Those amongst us that are the most unpatriotic beat loudest the drums of patriotism to forward their agendas; so it is that the most devilish in our midst proclaim the loudest to be the priests and prophets of God.
In mainstream religion, any religion, those who garb themselves in the holiest of outward appearances are in fact the most unholy of all. So next time you find yourself believing that these so–called ‘fundamental Christians’ are in fact Christians as defined by the Bible do yourself a favor and pick up a New Testament and read it. Determine for yourself if these self proclaimed champions of faith have anything in common with the one from whom they derive the name by which they classify themselves or at least the name by which the mainstream media classifies them. Is it not yet obvious that we are wallowing in misinformation both sacred and profane? Fundamentally speaking there is no such person as a fundamental Christian or a conservative Christian! Either one is a Christian or one is not, period. Those who apply such labels to men and women who are the exact opposite of that which is implied by these classifications have a devious purpose; they want us to think that the Biblical Christ and the Bible are what we see these men and women to be and sadly nothing could be further from the truth.
Have our conclusions as to the contents of the Bible been carefully molded by the very mainstream media that we so deeply distrust? We are constantly bombarded with carefully calculated misinformation so that we may formulate opinions and ideas that we deem to be our own; and in so doing we make them our own! Does it not then stand to reason that our opinions of the most important and only book that contains the complete history of man have also been manipulated? Subliminally we have been instructed what we ought to think of it; that without even realizing, words such as bigoted, intolerant, narrow minded automatically start invading our minds whenever the Bible or words such as ‘fundamental or conservative Christian’ are mentioned? Are these words our own or have our minds been carefully programmed what to think without even being aware of it? Is it possible that these so–called ‘fundamental Christians’ whose words and works are diametrically opposed to the teachings of the Bible can be the representatives of the Biblical Jesus who taught his disciples to love even their enemies? (Matthew 5:44) If you conclude as I have that the actions of these neo-cons reveal quite clearly that they more accurately disseminate the venom of the Serpent than the love of the Biblical Christ; then by what sleight of hand have they given themselves the name of Christians?
If we neglect to study the evidence for ourselves and simply accept the conclusions conveniently drawn for us by those in the media who we know to be tools of the New World Order, whose purposes are we serving, theirs or ours? This is a brief introduction to the topic of the molding of mass opinion through mass media. If your main source of information about the world is CNN (or any other network) it will not be long before you begin to agree with everything that is on CNN. Their anchors will be more than willing to provide you with opinions that you will be sure are your own not theirs. You will be free to think but it will be a near impossible task to think outside of the box, the TV box that is. Though they beat the drum of individuality their words will only lead you to conformity. It is the same with religion, if you study and believe the Bible, the King James Bible that is, you cannot help but be in opposition to everything that is mainstream, religious or secular. Then you will soon discover that no matter how different everyone claims to be, they are all the same just beneath the surface; the television and other media, their parents and schools, their priests and pastors have done an admirable job of molding them into the image of __________ fill in the blank with the image of the new and improved role model that CNN is promoting this week, Bill Gates for instance. And fear not! The image will not be anything like that of the Biblical Jesus Christ. No, you can be your own person as long as you’re no different than your neighbor and in time you will come to love Big Brother and defend him. Yes you will defend him with your life and even at the expense of the lives of your neighbors, your friends and even your family because Big Brother will have taught you how to identify 'enemy traitors' in your midst and who to call so the Ministry of truth can come and take them away (to be rehabilitated of course!) Be sure to tune in at 7 and pay close attention to Wolf as he Blitzers you with news you can trust! And don't forget the new world order commandment: 'Thou shalt love thy TV ...'
