PROPAGANDA: It is very likely that each of us has been exposed to a similar degree of propaganda. That is to say that we have been under the influence of some organizational “here to say” verbiage that has been presented to us as irrefutable, gospel truth. Because of our “brainwashing” influences, many, maybe most, of us have been suckered into a belief system that ” defies reality”. Each, in turn, is caught up in a smug cocoon of comfort. If we have enough external support, we feel very comfortable and secure in our own little cocoon. However, that comfort zone speaks nothing to reality. It is, in fact, so manifestly evident in the everyday presentation, of the false zone of security, seen in individuals of differing ‘faith bases”. Just today, I witnessed the seemingly joyous gathering of a group of Roman catholic women who belong to the “First Friday” group. The First Friday group are people who have been convinced that attendance at mass and receiving communion on the First Friday of each month somehow entitles the to a special place in God’s heart and ultimately in His kingdom. Of course, the ultimate visible goal is the ensuing “happy hour” of breakfast, and endless gossip following each First Friday session. Now, lets examine that philosophy. It seems to me that if the “First Friday” observation were indeed important for our salvation, it would be observed in the most sanctifying manner; that is, each communicant would leave the group in self- dignified fashion and would never be “tempted” to dilute the “First Friday”sanctity with the effervescent verbosity exhibited routinely at the post-First Friday masses. To me the entire event represent a charade, masquerading under the guise of holiness and spirituality; a complete hoax. Now, in reality, none of the above is pertinent to our salvation; the entire concept is a hoax and a sham. Our Creator is Perfect; meaning it cannot possibly be influenced by our cunning, conniving schemes aimed at gaining influence over our neighbors; “I doubt there is a greater sin”. Anyone who attempts to gain influence over his/her neighbor by supposed “religious” applications is a hypocrite in the ultimate degree. God plays “no favorites”. Anyone who presumes otherwise is inglorious. All of those presumptions stem from a false concept of God. God is a perfect rational being. As such, it would be impossible for It to be prejudicial, and/or “play favorites”. God is perfect love which means It attaches no more value to one than another.
