Prison Demographics are Changing.

Apparently Roman Catholics are now the predominate faith in prisons in England and Wales.

This has not been the case since the reformation.

The main cause is not due to those sinning Catholics being more sinful than anyone else as their own priest would have us believe, but because the Anglicans who have up until only a few decades ago had been well over 50% of the population, inside or outside prison.

The Church of England is losing members to agnosticism with alarming speed.

Many have said the Church of England will need to die before it can have a rebirth. It has become a political tool of power to keep power within the priesthood when the power actually belongs to God.

The Church needs to remove all the people who are there as being the easiest place to be and replaced them with Christians:
  • Who believe that Jesus was born of a virgin, Mary.
  • Who believe in miracles.
  • Who believe that Jesus was sinless and that he lived in the Holy Spirit.
  • Who believe that Jesus died for our sins as prophesied in Isaiah 53 and elsewhere in the Old Testament; that he is the prophesied Messiah.
  • Who believe in the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Who believe in His ascension into heaven and that he seated at the right hand of God the Father.
  • Who believe that Jesus forgave all sin for all time from the beginning to the end.
  • You just need faith in His deed to be forgiven.
  • Who believe that to be forgiven you must forgive.
  • Who Love the Lord God with all their being and love their neighbours equally, as they are a part of God.
  • Who believe in the omnipresence of God that we are in Him and He is in us.
  • Who must love themselves just as much, because we are temples to God.
The Church has no part in forgiving our sins as that was done once and once only by Jesus Christ for all time. There is nothing more that needs to be done. There seems to be a belief that the Church has some power as to who can be forgiven when that is totally in the hands of Jesus Christ. You have to have faith and then it is His decision.  If you do not have faith then there is unlikely to be any hope.

The bread and wine were shared in the Bible at every meal in all Christian’s houses. There was no control as to who could or could not give people bread and wine.

These last two comments are demonstrations as to how organized Churches not necessarily C. of E. have taken power from Christians.



To the Indian Government: Jesus of Nazereth is not a Demon

The Gujarti state produced text books stating that Jesus was a demon.  The Indian government said this was a mistake but have done nothing to rectify it.
This is a link to sign a petition to get the Indian Government to do something about it.

To the Indian Government Jesus of Nazereth is not a Demon

Ariana Grande sings that she is a Satanist.

Firstly and most importantly I wish to share my sympathies with those who died or who were injured at Ariana's concert, their families and friends. Also to those who had to deal with clearing away the bodies and taking the wounded to hospital and those who have seen death and mayhem up close and personal for the first time, even if they were not physically injured themselves.  Mental scars can be just as hard to heal.

Everything here is an opinion and a generalization. Please do not take offence if you disagree with this comment.

Here is an example of Arianna's songs (WARNING to Christians, Muslims and religious folk in general: This does contain immodestly dressed people and a declaration of Satanism. Skip the link if any of this would offend you but then you have to take my next statement on faith.

Listen to the words. This Is one of Ariana's songs at one point and she sings: "I will make a deal with the devil."

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXiSVQZLje8

Is it surprising that Muslims take offence at her songs and think of her and her fans as Satanists?

Certainly she and her team do not dress modestly as a God fearing person should.

Unfortunately Muslims take these things very seriously and are down right violent about imposing their opinion. It may not be all Muslims but do this show in a Muslim Country and the performers would almost certainly be beheaded.

As a Christian I would advise everyone to pay attention to the words of songs you listen not only personally on the radio, but also in shops and the songs your children listen to. Making deals with the devil should not be taken lightly and I would hope they were not a part of main stream popular music.  I would certainly censor any such song in my house.  That is I do not approve either but I am not going to go arround killing people because of it.

Non-religious folk may not worry about these things but doing so you are running not only the wrath of Muslims but also the wrath of God assuming he does, contrary to your belief, exist.  Muslims are much more likely to attack amoral shows.

Taking the lives of young people, should also not be taken lightly. I am fairly certain that most of the people at the Ariana concert last night were not die hard Satanists. Just young people growing up in a hedonistic society.

I would ask our Muslim friends to be less literal.  I would also ask them to stop killing people because you cannot save a dead person. If a sinner is alive then there is a chance that they can become god fearing.

I would also hope that Muslims discover God as a Loving rather than an angry God and become Christians, but then being one I think that goes without saying.

O.M.G. is a very dangerous thing to say

You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.
Exodus 20:3 N.K.J.V.
O.M.G. means "Oh My God" or "Oh My Gosh" a corruption of the same and if you are not using it in that meaning then you are in trouble with the Almighty. Unless you mean it.

Please be careful what you say.

If it is taken lightly It can be very damaging to your life. It can  lose you friends make enemies or break up marriages or relationships.  You may think I exaggerate, but let me explain.

If it  is said at the alter to your bride to tell God how beautiful she is. It can make marriages last in lives of mutual respect and love.

Whereas, saying "O.M.G." or "Oh My God!" during sex with someone you hardly know is almost certainly idolatry. You are worshipping the sex not God.  Worshipping anything other than God is idolatry. Idolatry, a separate sin, curses your children to third and fourth generation.

It is not only taking the Lord's name in vane and a form of Idolatry it is also fornication, which is also a sin but not one of the ten commandments.

The basis of any sound society is the family and families are based in marriage. Agreeing to love each other as long as you both shall live in front of God, friends and family the whole community.
 
Fornication is the antithesis of this. It is just sex for the pleasure of it. It leads to broken homes single mums who cannot be good mums and get food on the table and dads who do not care. A life where every one looks out for just number one and that is not God.

Be careful which side of the fence you are on.  On God's side with your friends and family supporting your relationship is so much easier than fighting for a life on your own.
Exodus 20:2
You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My Commandments.
Some Christians hold that the Cross/Crucifix in churches is a graven image, which it often is or possibly a cast or molten image and so you should not bow down to them.

This implies the hall of worship should be empty of any and all graven images.

If you follow this logic it implies we should not have them. This is the Why and How some of us stopped having crosses or any other graven image in churches.

Why the Universal set is a paradox and yet has to exist.

A paradox is something that is neither true nor false. e.g. This is false. If that statement were false then it must be true. If it were true then it must be false.  Both ways around it contradicts itself. It is neither true nor false it is in fact the simplest paradox.

Mathematicians know Russell's paradox means you cannot have a Universal set of everything in mathematics.  Otherwise it causes paradoxes.

According to naive set theory, any definable collection is a set.

Let R be the set of all sets that are not members of themselves.

If R is not a member of itself, then its definition dictates that it must contain itself.

If it contains itself, then it contradicts its own definition and so cannot be contained in the set R.

This means the set R is invalid in mathematics, which as a search for consistent truth excludes paradoxes. This is why mathematicians use a more complicated definition of sets called ZFC set theory which includes the axiom of choice. This theory enforces the exclusion of paradoxes and in the process excludes the Universal set that is the naive set U that contains everything, even itself

Mathematics restricts itself to all the self consistent beliefs to provide some very useful tools such as counting and fractions and percentages that can be relied on to give consistent results every time.

So the Universal set is quite correctly excluded from mathematics because if mathematics allowed paradoxes it would not be at all useful in science or accounting or the running of our daily lives.

From a philosophical point of view it is hardly surprising that the Universal set includes paradoxes, because the naive set of everything that exists has to include paradoxes because paradoxes exist.  Paradoxes are just as real as numbers and as easily logically defined. 

However, both mathematics and philosophy are based in words. Words do include paradoxes and Russell's Paradox as a part of the naive philosphical Universal set which is a philosophical not mathematical concept.

The Universal set may not be useful in mathematics but it is useful in finding an abstract definition of God.

The Universal set Contains everything so it is omnipresent.

The Universal set Contains all knowledge so it is omniscient.

The Universal set contains all possible outcomes even the ones we might call fictional or paradoxical. So it is omnipotent.

The Universal set Contains the creation of time and the whole of time until beyond the end of the Universe.  So it is eternal.

The Universal set Contains the foundation of the Universe and can be called the foundation of everything if not the creator.

The Universal set contains all life and so it is alive in the same way a city is alive or a snail with hard lifeless shell and lively hiddden body. If you take extremes as Issac Asimov did it leads to Gaia, Galaxia and on a much bigger scale the whole of existent abstract and physical being alive.
The Universal set is a paradox.  Paradoxes are based in words not numbers.  Words are symbols used to share meaning.

Words are only useful if you have some knowledge and know some one to share it with.

Lying is abusing the symbols to not share meaning.  This effectively stops lies from being words.

The fact that the Universal set shares meanings implies that it is by and large benevelont. However be aware of the anger of God if you know of his word and do not respect it, the Bible repeats over and over the stories of various kings and cultures that have died and disappeared because they did not fear God.

Yet another paradox of the God of Love. If you love him and let him lead you in life you find love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control.  These can help you even through illness, imprisonment torture and death. It is inside you, mind and soul.


The Universal set is a paradox.  It shares the meaning that the Universal set cannot be contained by mathematics.

The Universal set also defines all the primordial features of God. It is omnipresent, omniscient, the creator, eternal, omnipotent, it is alive.

On the positive side of this This does have an effect on the laws on Thermodynamics.  As we can build sand castles so may God.  It may be that he just has not yet or we have not recognised them as his work. Although that is one of the promises of the second coming. We get to live in heaven or hell for all eternity.
