One less lie the church needs forgiving on.

Strange how a monotheist religions has so many idols to worship.

Let My People Go

Let My People Go - Paul Robeson

Let My People Go
The Lutheran reform was the true redeemer of Europe; a gift of the head gardener to the impoverished peasants of Europe. It was not a lamb without blemish because the head gardener is not choosy and it was not a perfect gift, Martin Luther, because the Head is only a gardener after all.

The people of Europe were made free from slavery; heaven ceased to be the private property of the Romans and hell was no longer the personal weapon of the torturer.

God escaped from the bottle where the Romans had incarcerated it and evolved from an enslaved genie to the giver of the gifts, for all that and more is what sola fide, sola scripture and more meant to Protestants.

I love Anne Boleyn; I thank the head gardener for such a woman, a woman equal to Aphrodite and Helen of Troy.

The full truth instead of forming another lying church would have been better for all.

People are not let go when they are just moved from one mental prison cell to another.

The need for hope

Post by iskander » Tue Apr 18, 2017 8:29 am

The need for hope to move forward is never understood by the passive ones.

This hymn is often referred to as “the battle hymn” of the Reformation
A Mighty Fortress Is Our God
Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott

" This hymn is often referred to as “the battle hymn” of the Reformation. Many stories have been relayed about its use. Albert Bailey writes, “It was, as Heine said, the Marseillaise of the Reformation…It was sung in the streets…It was sung by poor Protestant emigres on their way to exile, and by martyrs at their death…Gustavus Adolphus ordered it sung by his army before the battle of Leipzig in 1631…Again it was the battle hymn of his army at Lutzen in 1632…"

Many, if not most Protestants are literalists and idol worshipers.

Most of the Eastern wisdom religions do not have Gods let alone idols.

They seek wisdom and not some God.

Where is the evidence for " they seek wisdom " in this thread?, Self in Theravada

Most, if not all here, are either trying to teach, preach or learn.

If not seeking wisdom or trying to show theirs, why do you think people are engaging in discourse here?

What Theravada wisdom did you learn from the teaching of Ananda?
