I have never seen the Christian god or the devil,
but believe in good and the bad becouse both work for the best that means
renewal and creation in the spirit whites is food for our soul and leads to
and as comman man i may be i belive in HP Blavatsky for she is a truly
wonderfull wommen her work is all passion and love for the above and i have
all her books and i seem to understand moost of it, maybe some of us are
gifted to receive natures wisdom. But all I can say is, its all in us but we
need the find the path to our inner self to reveal this knowledge and the
more i learned from my speritial teachers and see natures work and its
workers ad work I see Christianity as a foolish religion that is misleading
every one to believe and live a lie and adversely becoming a lie. More
disturbing is that some parts of the bible are vague copies of old
Babylonian texts and stories told for the virgin maid bedtime story.
