  1. Monotheistic Dances Part 7_a

    When we last left the German in the pew, he was faced listening to a pulpit that was shorn of its biblical perspective, and caught up in the rising tide of German nationalism that was the Third Reich under Adolph Hitler. Under Lutheran theology and the civil structure of the land, Adolph Hitler controlled the purse strings of the church and the right censure, and even imprison those who opposed him, even if from the pulpit. This Hitler had already begun to do with a vengeance. It should be noted ...
  2. Monotheistic Dances Part 7

    As we have see, the history of the Dance has been fraught with not only theological perils, but physical also. In the cans of Islam and Judaism, the dance led to the exile of two tribes in Medina and the eradication of a third. There is a historical parallel between this and Adolf Hitler that many are loathe to make. But, for Mohammad, it was the inevitable outcome of his need for Jewish acceptance as a Prophet of their own, and an acceptance of his revelation on a par with their own torah. In ...

    So, we have seen how polytheism and Arianism have reared their heads to establish themselves anew on the Christian movement. They are not Christian but are a perversion of it.

Both were parts of movements that felt the rest of Christianity was wrong in many, if not all, parts of major doctrines, and they set themselves forward as holders ...

Christianity went through many changes, and then seemed to repeat those changes. Islam went through a period of consolidation, and then has remained the same for more than seven hundred years. Judaism, is changing since the nineteenth century in the form of Messianic Judaism, and Modern reform Judaism. For Christians, many of the old ...

    In the last part, we looked at Mormonism in comparison to the three Monotheistic religions. It was a polytheistic religion that skated on pagan ice. It took the Bible and twisted it into the mold of Mormon revelation. It claims to be Christian, but a new kind. However, I have never been able to figure out what kind. It seeks to restore what even the Koran repudiates, and does so in terms that echo the old Moslem charge of 'say not three'. In so doing, it just opens a Pandora box of speculation that ...
