      Dave,

      I understand where you’re coming from. But keep in mind that different people have different roles in the body of Christ (Romans 12). And as to helping the poor and needy, absolutely those are important factors. But poverty in the Biblical sense is not only those with physical needs, but spiritual as well. The new agers are lost folks Dave. Someone needs to speak the Gospel into them.

      And about asking LA what to do, Dave, I am interviewing a guest, I wanted to let him give his opinions. I don’t agree with everything the man says, or in fact what any man says. I stick to the word of God, but as a show with a guest, it’s important to let them speak their mind and their opinion.

      And finally, I don’t think LA or anyone else who does research and evangelism in this area of prophecy, new age, occult are doing it for money. I mean if money was really the thing they were after, don’t you think they would be doing something else? But, as a part of the fallen system, it does take money to live and to conduct evangelistic projects.

      In any regard, I value your opinions and thoughts just as much as anyone else’s so keep em coming Dave. The point is not to always agree. In fact, life would be boring without disagreements.

      However, for many of us, we can rejoice in one thing and that’s Jesus Christ. So keep in mind that these disagreements are family affairs and not a means to salvation.

      God Bless

        gonz most pagans and wiccans are almost always former christians they have fallen away from christianity due to people just like Mr Marzulli and the corruption of churches and the wolves that we see all over the world that claim to be followers of christ but are nothing of the kind if mr marzulli wants to confront evil why not simple stand outside the church of satan and preach . yes we have to make money to live but when i heard him asking for large amounts of cash to be donated my blood boiled where could this cash be better used to please and serve gods plan and will ? in some old jungle temple or on the streets where mr marzulli lives the down and out the homeless the starving
        two verses come to mind here Matthew 10:8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received, freely give. freely he said when ever a book gets heavely plugged i always get alarm
        bells ringing i see no diffrence here between a huge church being built soaking up huge amounts of money that could be better spent relieving suffering of the needy i very sorry but this cash he wants could feed literally thousands of people
        around the world that need it right now this is why i will not join any church that has these huge stone buildings that cost a fortune to build and run

        1. Dave uk

          sadly in almost all the cases i have seen there is one word that strikes deep routed fear into christians (charity) unless of course they are the ones in need but when the sun shines they forget this huge part of the message of jesus mercy Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.Matthew 25:40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. !!!! here endeth the lesson !

          King James Version (KJV)

          23 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,

          2 Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat:

          3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.

          4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.

          5 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,

          6 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,

          7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

          8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.

          9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

          10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.

          11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.

          12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

          13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

          14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

          15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

          16 Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor!

          17 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?

          18 And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty.

          19 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift?

          20 Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon.

          21 And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein.

          22 And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.

          23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

          24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.

          25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.

          26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.

          27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.

          28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

          29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,

          30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.

          31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.

          32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.

          33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

          34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:

          35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.

          36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.

          37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

          38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.

          39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

          1. Matt24

            I completely dont understand your perspective… Im only 8 min in and I have heard nothing but preaching from LA; that we should put on the Full Armor of God, continuously and constantly reiterating to go to Eph 6 & Job… to rely on the Prince of Peace, to not be a babe in Christ, to confide in the Messiah, take the Sword of the Spirit, Cast it down by the Blood of the Lamb, etc on and on.
            This first 10min is JAMMED PACKED with the Word, and the True Gospel of the Resurrected Christ. I think you should reconsider and take another listen before making such strong accusations. Im all for rebuking, restoring, and reproving, but only when its Biblical.
            He is surely preaching the Word of God, Solidly, Sending people to the Messiah, doing the Good Work of the Father, and people can be reading these comments before listening, and you may send them away from hearing the True Gospel that LA is surely preaching.

          You blaming people like L.A. for the rebellion of the heart? Give me a break. Are you born again? Better make sure of that before you go out into the world trying to help everyone.

  4. Mr. “Dave UK”,

    I do not think you are understanding virtually anything Marzulli had to say. He was not denigrading the Bible in the slightest, nor was he suggesting that he is any sort of guru or saviour to be in place of Christ. All he does is preach Christ, and him crucified. I pray that the Lord will begin to open your eyes to the realities of the spiritual realms, and the degree of demonic deception that is going on all around us…

    Bas and Gonz: What a great interview. You both asked lots of questions that I have wondered about myself. Totally had the same reactions to “Avengers” when I saw it. Not only that, but before the movie even began there were at least three previews for other movies that all had the same alien invasion theme. (the upcoming film “Prometheus” is perhaps the most disconcerting, considering that it takes the whole ancient aliens concept and makes it central to the story…) But anyways, it was pretty surreal. I just sat there thinking, “Seriously? Just how many movies can they MAKE that feature some kind of alien invasion?” You’d think it’d be something that had outworn it’s originality by now, unless, like you said, there really is something coming down the pipe and the public is being “prepped” for the disclosure event. To be honest, for a while I was pretty skeptical about the whole idea of memes and suggestive programming through the media and whatnot, but the more I see it happening, the harder it is to remain a skeptic!

    peace.

    (P.S. – And yeah, when I turned on the news and some that some guy was chewing someone’s face off, I was like “Whoa, how is that NOT demonic??” It was really cool to hear L.A. just launch into an explanation of how drugs work as a portal that opens people up to the spiritual realms and demonization. keep it up!)

      Dear thetruthisstrangerthanfiction i understand more than you may think this man was attacking people that give gifts 0f $1000s to these tv shows ect and in and in essence saying his own cause is more worthy first off these awfull religous tv shows like god tv the 700 club are all corrupt to the hilt this is true but what makes mr marzulli think his trip to this temple is anymore vital i mean really what does he think that he can do ? or indeed his two companions ..it is claer in the bible that only god holds back the powers of darkness and when the time comes hes going to let them loose on the world so who are we to think we can prevent it ? and as to your
      online name thetruthisstrangerthanfiction oh you better believe it
      i understand more than you give me credit for ok where in the bible does it say that demons are Not!! fallen angels ?? where does it say that the souls of the dead roam the earth ? as mr marzulli claims ? he said the nephilim roam the earth as evil spirits did he not ? and these ufos are fallen angels
      yet the bible makes it clear no human souls roam the earth and yes the people on the earth before the flood were still human what does the bible say happens when we die ?? we stay in the grave until judgment or we go to heaven

      1. yet the bible makes it clear no human souls roam the earth and yes the people on the earth before the flood were still human. yet the bible makes it clear no human souls roam the earth and yes the people on the earth before the flood were still human…

        I think you just highlighted one point where you are misinterpreting what Marzulli is saying…

        Yes, there were humans before the flood! No, Marzulli is NOT saying that demons are the disembodied spirits of deceased humans. He is saying that the spirits of the Nephilim are demons. You could disagree with him about that, and in reality it’s not as important as the main fact that whatever demons are exactly, they are evil and serve their master Satan.

        But as for the Nephilim, it basically comes down to how you look at verses like Genesis 6… If you look at what the text plainly says, it tells us that the “Sons of God” came and had children with the “daughters of men”. It’s right there, in the bible. And (as Marzulli did explain in this interview), it makes absolutely no sense to try and make those verses more palatable to our sensibilities by interpreting it to mean that the Nephilim were the wicked, giant offspring off “ungodly” human men and “godly” human women. (When believers and unbelievers have kids together, they do not create giants!) The term “Sons of God” in scripture always refers to angels.

        I know it sounds pretty out there. I thought it was a pretty weird idea for a long time too. But as I came back to the plain words of the scriptures, the truth was unavoidable. At certain points in history, yes, fallen angels have fathered hybrid creatures which the Bible calls “Nephilim”, and they are not human…

        Just wanted to clarify that point….

        (so what exactly do you understand the “Nephilim” to be?)

        1. dave uk

          Nephilim = giants thats what the bible tells us that then started messing with animals and humans creating hybrids as you say . this is not about them ! its about abusing the name of god to acquire funds i am dead against this and oppose it vigorously let me tell you a story that happened any months ago some youutbe users
          that i won’t name made a video claiminf they were about to thrown out of there home onto the street they said they had no food and they were starving and freezing cold they said please send us money it is the duty of every chrisitans to support their brethren somea week later they got floods of cash in the next video they made the wife was showing of some worthless book she was boasting she had just bought in a book store that day so if they were starving and freezing why the book ? fuel maybe
          no no my friend they are nothing more than two charlatans cashing in on gods name and the generosity of good god fearing people .and i have seen so very many so you tell me what would serve god better $12’000 on a pointless expedition for some auther to some old ruin or feeding the less fortunate of gods children ?

        2. dave uk

          in fact i could use a new keyboard will you send me one ?
          i tell you i am so done with this loonacy all you have shown me is how a christian should not behave nothing more . all i see is stumbling blocks everywhere i look . humans i don’t know.. one has to wonder why god wants to save any of us ! ok this will be my last post i find people like you so draining .

    2. Dave uk

      let me ask you have you ever come into contact with a demon ? have you ever seen one had it attack you ? have you ever taken pictures of any ? have you ever been out late at night into satanic ritual site on halloween ? have you ever had demonic forces in your house to the point local priests come in and get freaked out and leave in fear ? have you ever had the leader of the anglican church send his official exorcist into your home to clear it out ? that failed i might add ! do you know what made all this stop ? reading the bible and talking to the boss ! only he can stop these things dead in there tracks and by his power alone without him we are nothing you know nothing about me friend please do not tell me i do not understand anything i understand alot more than most people do

    3. Dave uk

      and just for the record all the entities i have seen were not 10 feet tall and looking like amazonian giants and they didn’t look like
      grey aliens ..i give up with this pointless debate i am just wasting my time here gonz and basil please remove all of my footage and testimony from your site i want nothing further to do with this i will post my own testimony on my own website i can’t help these arrogant people that think they know best when will human kind get it into our thick skulls we know nothing at all ..we only think we do im all done here and one last thing if you wish to give your money to mr marzulli because you think his trip to these old ruins is vital to humanity go right on ahead send him first class it won’t amount to a thing the plan is already in motion and mankind had nothing to do with it
      But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.Isaiah 44:18 They know nothing, they understand nothing; their eyes are plastered over so they cannot see, and their minds closed so they cannot understand.

      1. and just for the record all the entities i have seen were not 10 feet tall and looking like amazonian giants and they didn’t look like
        grey aliens

        I’m not entirely sure why you would assume that anyone is suggesting that demonic entities would actually look like giants or grey aliens…

        But to answer your question, yes, I have encountered demons. I do not pretend to be to an expert or anything, but one thing I do know is that it doesn’t matter if they appear to people as giants, or aliens, or Buddha, or your dead grandmother, or a million dancing psychadelic elves, or an impersonal energy field, or even looking like Jesus himself. They can assume all these appearances and many others. (Scripture tells us that Satan masqerades as an angel of light…)

        Honestly, I don’t see why you’re getting so worked up about Marzulli trying to raise some cash to go to down to the temple. He said himself that he didn’t want to go, but feels that God is telling him to, and personally I’m not one to make snap judgements about what God may or may not be telling one of His servants to do! πŸ™‚

        You SHOULD understand however, that the intention is NOT to go down there and stop Satan’s entire master plan or anything! NOR does L.A. or people like Russ Dizdar believe that Dec. 21, 2012 is actually the “end of the world”. (That is a huge misunderstanding you have there…) What they DO believe (and I happen to agree) is that the Enemy IS using 2012 to deceive and lead astray more and more people, (people who Christ loves and died for), and I think their hope is to go down there, be ready to do whatever God might call them to do, and see some people be delivered!

    4. Hey thetruthis, I work in film and can tell you that these big alien invasion jobbies are made because they make money- plain and simple. Hollywood are very good at taking an idea and running it into the ground and amazingly making money from it. For example Battleship was a total joke to pretty much everyone, but it made more money than a film like John Carter which was based on some old pulp scifi and was far more original despite having many flaws too!

      The same themes are regurgitated again and again because they are gobbled up by a dumbed down public. People seem to love these empty narratives with all the eye-candy. I don’t suppose you can blame people for enjoying essentially pointless films, personally I enjoy reading some things that I know aren’t exactly on the level with Plato!

      I definitely think that some films have a specific purpose or message though, and this can be worryingly sinister, but the Avengers was just a money maker imo.

      Think back to ‘Day of the Triphids’ ect… Invasion is a common theme in sci-fi, simply because it makes a compelling narrative. Even if DotT was a commentary on the cold war if I remember rightly.

      1. Hey, I’m not going to deny that Hollywood suffers from an extreme case of unoriginality! Superhero flicks are proven big money makers, and what comic book hero hasn’t been translated to the big screen by now? It does boggle the mind how many things can be made and remade into movies these days… (When I saw that they were coming out with a Three Stooges movie, I was like, now that is just SAD….)

        BUT…

        As you said, “The same themes are regurgitated again and again because they are gobbled up by a dumbed down public“, and this would seem to beg the question, WHY is the “dumbed down public” so infatuated by the idea of aliens? Does the massive amount of alien films create the huge interest, or does the huge amount of interest prompt the making of so many films? I guess it can turn into sort of a chicken-and-egg sort of thing, but I do think it’s interesting…

        You said “People seem to love these empty narratives with all the eye-candy“, and I definitely agree, but then again, I’m starting to realize that all these “empty narratives”, while they are usually very shallow, or even cheesy, they still actually contain a lot of “conceptual” content. Take the Avengers for example, (since you mentioned it). At a glance, it seems pretty benign, with your typical superhero/alien invasion themes. But then you realize that the “portal” that the aliens come through is opened with the “Tesseract” (ever read “A Wrinkle in Time”?), and in the “prequel” film Captain America, they show the Tesseract being obtained by the Nazis in some castle in Scandanavia, when the Red Skull walks up to the big wooden door with a tree carved on it, saying to himself “Yggdrasil”!

        Well, so what?

        The thing is, “Yggdrasil” is straight out of Norse Mythology (like Thor and Loki), and is the Norse version of the “World Tree”, which is the occult concept of a “trunk” which connects the different “realms” (i.e. spiritual plains…)

        Nazis like Himmler, (who were super into the occult) very much believed in the Norse Mythology, (altho they had German/Volkish) terms for everything, and they very much believed in “Yggdrasil”, and did in fact go around Europe trying to find exactly where it was! It was not mere “mythology” to them, it was real, it was about searching for esoteric knowledge in order to gain more power. Yggdrasil, “The The World Tree”, is a “didache of demons” that is very ancient, and very evil…

        So, anyways, I guess I’m just trying to say that even though we may not say that there is necessarily some Satanist guy or group who sits in a dark room and greenlights every movie being made (but maybe there is, who knows?), we can at least see that the ridiculous level of idea-pilfering by Hollywood from pre-existing sources has led to an insane amount of occult material and concepts finding their way into the mainstream.

        A generation or two ago, most regular folks wouldn’t be very familiar with ideas like trans-dimensional portals or “telekinesis” or whatever. But today, most elementary-aged children would know exactly what you were talking about…

        1. I definitely agree with you on a lot of points.

          Hollywood is known to be a dark industry indeed. And you seem to be far better informed than I on the occult implications of these narratives.

          The chicken or egg issue when it comes to at least the theme of aliens like alot of what we are discussing, is a huge subject with many aspects.
          But it really seems to me that there is a desperate longing from people to ‘not be alone in the universe’ or to glean some purpose or belonging which they do not currently have in this materialistic life. They want a simple answer, a saviour that requires nothing of them.
          On a base level we all want to connect, but unfortunately ET’s are probably not interested in us if they do exist.

          Some of this is reflected in the New Age movement which is a pick and mix of inconsistent spiritualistic nonsense. ‘Spirituality’ is percieved as undemanding and modern.

          It’s a shame people are being blinded so completely to the truth.

          1. I completely agree that “there is a desperate longing from people to β€˜not be alone in the universe’ or to glean some purpose or belonging which they do not currently have in this materialistic life”.

            I also agree that it is a shame are being blinded so completely to the truth.

            However, I would have to say that (as bizarre as it sounds) “E.T.s” do exist, and they most definitely are “interesting” in mankind. Not because they are from Mars, but because they exist in the spiritual realm. As Marzulli is constantly saying, “UFO’s are real, burgeoning, and not going away”… I would definitely encourage you to look into more of his work, and the work of others like Russ Dizdar. The deception is not just some accident. It is not just because of the laziness or fallenness of man (tho that is a big factor!). The demonic realm is real. There are people all over the world, right now, who have full-on conversations with demons all the time. Sometimes they think they are aliens, sometimes “ascended masters”, sometimes dead people, or whatever else. Like Basil and Gonz were saying, it is quite remarkable how so many “E.T.s” who’ve contacted people are so intent on talking about Jesus, of all things, and specifically about how He is not the Son of God and things like that!

            So yes, the New Age is definitely mixed bag all kinds of spiritualism/occultism, but I would hesitate to call it “nonsense” as though they are all simply imagining it all in their heads… The “beings” are quite real, but their message is always false, and it is that God-breathed “longing to not be alone” in humanity that they are exploiting as they lead men and women away from the Truth….

    Holy Smokes!!!! What did I miss guys? Haven’t listened yet—I’m plugging in the Ipod right now. I’ve been looking forward to the Marzulli interview. Me weren’t expecting controversy, however!!!

    the simple and obvious truth is if you understand the following verse and trust it 100%
    then you will know the world will not end on december 2012 Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. so mr marzullis trip will be a waste of effort and the money to will be a waste that could serve god in better ways point made ! i rest my case

    1. Hey Dave, I think we all know nothing will happen in this temple. I’m at a loss why Mr Marzulli feels he has to go, I would be surprised if he raises the cash- it’s an awful lot of money afterall.

      Things are probably reaching fever pitch in the New Age community if they are going to some mouldy old ruin in anticipation of I don’t know what.

      Anyone have a link to the list of people who will be attending? I’d be interested to take a look.

  9. Just started listening, just thought I’d chime in that Tolkein and CS Lewis were Christians- Lewis especially so. He has written some wonderful essays and fiction on and related to biblical themes. His writings are extremely insightful- really reccomend them.

    1. Arnn

      Hear hear!! Lewis is one of the few pure intellectuals we Christians have that wrote good, literary fiction. As most folks know he was a scholar, apologist, and a fantastic writer.

      1. Indeed. I was surprised and a little shocked at the insinuation that they might have been occultists. I suppose CS Lewis isn’t as well known in the US though?

        There’s nothing occult about Narnia- Azlan represents Christ sacrificing and ressurecting ect…

        Though personally I don’t really like the Narnia films, I don’t think they are very good!

        1. admin

          LA wasn’t saying they were occult, only that their training in classical mythology influenced the kind of imagery he used in the film and books. CS Lewis is a legendary figure in Christian apologetics as well as his gospel themes stories. I think we all know that.

          1. I guess I misinterpreted it then. Doesn’t surprise me Lewis is well known, but I am not exactly very well informed on the US I suppose.

        2. Arnn

          Professor Lewis is very well known here. He has steady readership that waxes and wanes (e.g. big in the 70’s not so much in the early 80’s–big in the mid 80’s again–probably due to Malcolm Smith, etc.). His key audience is usually young college kids and I speculate the reason being that he is fairly easy reading while at the same time he leaves the reader feeling as if he or she is and intellectual giant. Scholarly works such as “Studies in Words” aren’t read as much by layfolk. Interesting what he wrote on Merlin in “That Hideous Strength”.

          The budget on the first two films was suitable–although “Caspian” was never that great as a book or a movie–probably due to sequel phenomena. “Voyage of the Dawn Treader” was a travesty as a movie due to budjet restrictions and poor/inaccurate screenplay.

  10. Arnn

    Re: the “temple”—I think during the height of the solstice the sun will create a serpent shadow for a few moments. Believe I heard this on Jan Markell’s program at olivetreeviews.org—she’s a good source of info too.

    1. Right, well that makes sense. I believe I heard or watched a program about something similar with an alignment of certain pyramids/structures in Egypt, though I might be getting my locations confused.

  11. Forgot to say, great show as always guys. Marzulli is certainly an interesting and charismatic fellow!

    Still can’t let Marzulli off for his dig at Lewis though- someone as well educated as him should know better πŸ˜‰

    Also, I’ve had a few unpleasant experiences with sleep paralysis myself, one especially frightening, but nothing for years now.

    1. Hmmm, I didn’t really take his comments about Lewis or Tolkien as a “dig”, but more like a sober assesment. He definitely didn’t seem to be questioning the motives or intentions of the writers of Narnia or Lord of the Rings, but was simply pointing out that there are elements in BOTH of those books/films that can lead people in the wrong direction.

      I know we like to think of Narnia as being this rock solid depiction of the gospel, (Aslan dying on the stone table as a sacrifice for Edmund), but as I’ve gotten older, I feel a lot less comfortable with it as a whole…

      Overall, it seems like those “Christian themes” are completely lost on anyone who isn’t already a Christian, and already looking for them, and so for everyone else, the stories sadly seem to do little more than continue to wet the appetite for more films involving things like sorcery, medieval warfare, or mythical creatures. It’s basically taking a bunch of occult concepts and symbolism and trying to “repurpose” them for the Kingdom, which overall doesn’t seem to be all that wise, or effective for that matter. (I’d say the fact that Disney agreed to make the Narnia series should tell us something about how the World chooses to interpret those stories…)

      1. Arnn

        Lewis definitely walked the tightrope. Remember he had fauns and satyrs as “good guys” in his fiction and Doug Hamp in “Corrupting the Image” cites these as chimera which would make them unredeamable. In this way Lewis can get ambiguous, but there is no doubt we’ll meet him in Heaven. By the way “The Great Divorce” is an excellent read.

        1. Yes, exactly… And I’m not trying to pick on Lewis or anything. I suspect he viewed things like Satyrs or Fawns as being more akin to various species of angelic creatures, and so assumed that there would be God-fearing ones, as well as evil ones. It doesn’t seem like he ever stopped and considered such things in light of a “Genesis 6 perspective”, so, yeah…

          I have read The Great Divorce and liked it (tho it was many years ago). I absolutely loved his Perelandra series… There was one portion where some figure was walking around on some weird planet, ripping apart frogs or something, just for the pleasure of it, and I remember it being such a fascinating and yet terrifying psycho-commentary on the mind of Satan!

          1. Arnn

            Yeah and the protagonist (Ransom)fought him to the death. Ransom ended up with his heal bruised permanently–beautiful symbolism! Perelandra was wonderful comment on the struggles we experience as we schlep our way through life.

            Blessings,

      Having been in sleep medicine for twenty years I may make a comment below on cataplexy. Then again I may not—really gettin’ burned out on it trying to transition over to being an artist for which God called me.

      1. Well I’d be interested to hear a professional’s opinion, but don’t feel pressured!

        1. Arnn

          Yeah I’ll post something on it later today or tommorrow on a new post.

    I must say that this is probably my least “enjoyable” episodes. While I do believe that spiritual warfare is a real thing, i really do not appreciate his whole “push/force” notion that I’m getting while listening to him. The whole body of Christ is made of separate parts, therefore God knows each of our capabilities and not all of us are called to participate on these “spiritual warfare” if we do not wish to. If you wish too, pray to Him. But clearly both legs and hands are made for different things.

    In more personal level, I must say, I was quite disturb hearing him ramble on. In a way, he becomes quite ‘judgmental’ saying things like “helllooooooo….” just to get his point across.

    I actually felt quite unpeace when you first mentioned him last episode, calling him “the great” la marzulli. While we should respect people, I do not agree that you seemed to have promote him as a celebrity.
    Next time you decide to have a guest, I really encourage that you do more of a “discussion” rather than “interview”.

    1. admin

      Will,

      Thanks for the input. We’re certainly going to have our hits and misses and disagreements etc. You are right that the body of Christ is made up of many parts and we all have different roles (Romans 12). In particular LA was a guy who helped me understand the UFO phenomenon after almost abandoning Christianity all together (not exclusively because of this topic) because I wasn’t getting answers from my local church, even getting scoffed at and ridiculed for asking about the topic. Nevertheless, as I mentioned earlier to Dave, I don’t agree 100% with him or any man. I think ultimately we should all stick to the Word. But, we do want to provide a platform for people with different ideas and opinions to express themselves.

      -Gonz

      1. will

        Hey Gonz,

        All of us will eventually come to a state of “disagreement” at some point. Especially with this kind of touchy topic, that doesn’t really get discussed in church.

        Paul actually wrote in 1 Corinthians 11:19 that he sees division in a church as a good thing! Because with difference view/opinion, God wants to teach us (all of us) to come to Him and seek the answer together. All i can say is, instead of saying “I am right, you are wrong”, we should say “indeed, there is possibility that what he is saying is correct…. or wrong.. let’s ask God :)”

        God Bless guys… I can really see that what you’re doing is a good thing.

  13. I wanted to avoid talking about some peoples problem with Marzulli but it seems a few people are extremely ruffled by him, I am genuinely interested to know what it is that bothers some of you about him.

    But come on guys, he’s doing his thing and I didn’t feel pressured to subscribe to his views. I have limited experience with these religious channels, but I do have experience with how corrupt the Church of England is so I get that… I personally refuse to enter any cathedral which charges for the privilege. Shame on you St. Pauls!

    Sure, I had some issues with what he was saying- I mean worrying about D&D seems rather OTT, but I guess it could be an entry level into investigating the occult as like many things, it borrows heavily from folk lore and such, but for most people, like me, most games are exactly that- a bit of a fun way to pass some time.

    Regardless of anything I think though, we should accord any guest of the show with a certain level of civil respect, just as any of us would expect from each other. πŸ™‚

    1. Arnn

      I personally like the guy—his voice and passion reminds me of a born again Penn Jillette. Plus he can write when most Christian fiction is non-literary fluff. His confidence probably ruffles people, but I’d rather be around someone like him than a used car-salesman type which describes about 90% of the U.S. urban population (in my opinion). A lot of people were I’m from are all fame and fashion and bleached teeth and I know it’s gotta be worse where Gonz and Basil are.

      Arnn

      1. I haven’t read much Christian fiction other than Lewis, I’m not sure you could class Tolkein as that though, despite the fact I think some of his worked draws heavily from the Bible.

        I’ll be checking out some of Marzulli I think though. I’ll add him to the massive reading list I’ve accrued!

        1. Arnn

          I think you’ll like “Nephilim”. I read it about ten years ago and it stuck with me through the years. What is interesting is that while I was watching Gonz’s “Age of Deceit”, I kept thinking “hmmm, this film reminds me of that Marzulli fellow I read a few years back”. Come to find out they are in the same paradigm circles. At any rate I guess an example of poor writing to me would be the “Left Behind” series which has all the depth of a “Johnny Quest” cartoon. The problem with writing Christian fiction is most of it falls under three genres: Romance, End times, or us vs. the new agers. That would leave just symbolism which can fall under magical realism of which there are some decent Norwegian as well as the obvious South American artists. If only we had authors that could write stories like Raymond Carver’s “A Small Good Thing” which has great Christian elements but I don’t think Mr. Carver was a tongue speaking hardcore born again fellow.

          Good reading, Jonny!

          Arnn

        2. Arnn

          Oh yes the “Return of the King” was an excellent metaphor for the return of Christ—good ol’ Stridor is actually Aragorn—the King. Also it is reminiscent of Abram/Abraham. Great allegory!!!

          1. What I’ve always wrestled with re: all the supposed allegory of LOTR is, if Stridor/Aragorn is supposed to be a representation of Christ taking back his throne, then what in the heck is Frodo carrying the burden of the ring and destroying it in Mt. Doom supposed to be? For me, all the “working allegory” gets overshadowed by the stuff that doesn’t seem to have any parallels at all in scripture….

          2. Arnn

            Hi Truth. Yep Frodo was definitely an allegory for Christ as well. Tolkein wasn’t as linear as Lewis in his allegorical approach—LOTR was more like a tossed salad in that there were mini metaphors everywhere. With Gollum Tolkien strays away from Christian symbolism since Gollum/Smeagal is a metaphor for a common smack addict!! I mean that poor schlemeil was a opiate junkie if I ever saw one!! To bad they didn’t have a Christ centered 12-step group in Middle Earth! At any rate my point is that Tolkien is a little more scatterbrained with his allegory, which in a sense makes him rich in his own way—rich as plum pudding as Lewis would say!

          3. Maybe the fact that Tolkien was a Catholic also plays a role in why his allegories differ from Lewis’s…

            But overall, the “tossed salad” thing is a big reason why I just don’t really dig allegorical depictions/interpretations so much anymore. In fact, I think the elusive allegories can sometimes serve to distract us from the more obvious problematic elements like sorcery, which is used heavily by both Lewis and Tolkien. There simply is no “good sorcery”, it’s all demonic, the “white magic” and the “black magic” is all of Satan! But it’s sort of telling that the Christian community has come to a place where we can set that aside as we try to pinpoint the interesting biblical allegory…

            Can you imagine a movie where the characters were all using psychadelic drugs or something, and the Church being like “But there’s so much great Christian allegory in there!”? Or what about a porno with tons of great Biblical metaphors? Hmmmm, not feelin it!

            Anyways, interesting discussions here today!

  14. Arnn

    Truthstrangerthanfiction,

    Talk about metaphors—mixed metaphors that is!! There is a huge difference between gleaning symbolism from porno vs. gleaning symbolism from classically based Christian literature.

    What makes art good art? That it is aesthetic on one level? Or that it is textured enough to be aesthetically pleasing on several levels. Both Lewis and Tolkien’s lit is Christian based. And while you or I have not had the benefit of sitting in on a meeting of the inklings, I believe we can safely infer that their critique circle heavily involved Christ.

    Best,

    Arnn

    thr truthisstrangerthanfiction Produce your evidence Now post it on this site or do not direct your pointless comments in my direction Marzulli is a fraud he’s just a book salesman that wants a free ticket to some old temple ruins . if he was a follower of christ he would know that nothing will happen on the 21st december 2012

For you were made from dust, and to dust you will return.” does mr marzulli look hungry ? sick needy ? if this man wants to go on a trip why not work for a living and save up like the rest of us instead of being a parasite and marzulli if you are reading this get a job and give that money you save to go on this trip and give it to the poor ! i demand that all of you hypocrites that defend this mans misson to watch these videos and tell me his misson is more important
    if you still defend him you are not a christan and you have no salvation its as simple as that

        many thanks arnn i like her music very much but i realy have to run my work is elswhere take care stay safe but i thought i had to say my ten bobs worth you see i really do tell the truth i have seen and been in the presents of evil close up and personal i will at some point be doing some videos i will post it so people can hear my full shocking story and it will be free and no books or dvds will be on offer freely i have received and freely i give
        to all that want to listen ! i just cant allow myself to get side tracked by super smart people that know it all i can tell you this i have been seeking gods truth for over 2 years now and the more i learn the more i realise how very little we do know . he told us to humble ourselves that my friend is an so so true ! i have been humbled but not by arrogant men no no from a higher place direct ! oh boy are we in trouble !

  19. dave uk

    look arnn let me make this simple for all to understand . iam a simple man with a poor education that knows first hand the full meaning of the words total despair and hopelessness . i have only been a follower of the big guy for just over two years i am trying everyday to understand what he is all about because he just showed up in my life in a way that would freak the living hell out of most people and send them to the nut house in fact one of my former paranormal investigation team members tha was with me when all this came down has just weeks ago suffered a total nervous breakdown as a direct result of what we all encountered in thoes tunnels just a little over two years ago . he is unabled to cope with it now ! i have been trying to learn all about this god i never knew in my entire evil selfish life and sadly almost ever christian i have met has only served to confuse me about what god expects us to be many many seek money fame .i have seen false prophets i see christians fight other chrisitans i see christians fighting muslims ect ect i have lost count of how many people that tell me i don’t understand anything like this stranger than fiction person i have also seen how other christians are only to happy to jump on the band wagon and attack others that have diffrent ideas i have lost count of how many times i have been cast into hell by these people that simply know nothing about me or what i do
    it seems to me that chrisitans that have high level arcademic skills and vast knowledge of the bible and just about every other religion

    1. dave uk

      but they lack one simple thing ! compassion for others ..they are driven by their own ego and pride and take great delight in mocking the less academically qualified and make stupid comments like you haven’t understood and single thing !! but the truth is i do and what i know didn’t come from any book or human teacher it came direct from god himself ! and that freaks me out! you see you people don’t know my full testimony it seems to me most people only want to know about doom and gloom and how the end will come even when a simple moron like me can understand what god said on this subject. ! its so bizarre to me that people want to describe the type color and caliber and what type of gun the bullet that will kill them will be fired from rather than how to avoid it and live ! do you see my point here ( no one knows the time or hour !!
      And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.) now when i see people asking for money like mr marzilli who wears nice suits has a nice house a car has a good job who is well fed who claims to be doing gods work ..my blood presure goes into thermo nuclear meltdown
      and even worse when people all jump on the band wagon and tell me to shut up or i don’t know what iam talking about i realy spit the dummy
      now take a long hard look at the videos i posted of these poor poor people that don’t even have clean water becuase if you get into heaven
      they will be your masters because they will be gods elite not us bible preaching burn em in hell hypocrites ! so now i dedicate my life to helping these awesome people that never complain

      1. dave uk

        they never moan oh i had a bad day at work today ! or this guy on this website really got on my nerves ..or my poor back aches or how am i going to get enough cash to go on this road trip to some place or other NO ! they have nothing but all us oh so clean and saved by the blood of christ on the cross rightous ones have it all don’t we oh i am so blessed today really ??? you think so do you ? did you wake up hungry in pain searching through filth for something to take away the pains in your empty bloated stomach this morning ? did you watch your mother or sister or brother die when they could have lived with just the crumbs from our oh so white as white rightous saved because i love jesus tables ? oh we are such fools ..
        At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.!!! so you all think your smart do you
        well there is a poorly educated scumbag in kent that really does get it

      contradiction

    At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.Matthew 11:25 And he said unto them, He that has ears to hear, let him hear.
    Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him.
    Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. now do this simple test watch the videos i have posted if you do not break down inside and feel compelled to do your part its simple you are not a chrisitan !
    now a word about UFOs end times demons 2012 why concern yourselves with matters such as these when the bible makes it clear no man knows the time or hour .. why worry about the type shape and size of the bullet that comes your way when you should really be wondering how to avoid it !!

  21. dave uk

    i did not come here to make friends or be popular i bring a sword!!!! i have abandoned my pride and ego ! i hate money and even more what mankind will do to get his grubby hands on it
    i have seen the worst traits of mankind first hand . i am an unworthy sack of festering puss in gods eyes and i deserve death
    so my well educated brothers and sister what about you ? are you full of joy at the fact that you are saved by the blood of christ alone or do you understand this simple and obvious verse that a child could understand ? faith without works is dead !! or do you think gods calling is to run off down to mexico to save some baal worshiping pagans from opening up some portal ?? ok i just can’t se how i can do anymore here anymore debate is pointless and serves no usefull perpose .. seek and you shall find knock and door shall be opened the truth has been given to you all all the proof you need has been supplied to you yet you focus on ufos pointless youtube show men authors of books ! yet ignore the only one book that leads you to truth ! you know the saying you can lead a horse to water

      dave uk is a voice crying out in the wilderness reminds me of another voice in the wilderness and they cut his head off but he was gods prohpet im just an underserving poorly educated scumbag not fit to lick the the seat of his toilet . and i know my place in the big scheme of things . point is boys and girls do you know yours ?????

      1. dave uk

        ok this just came into my head as i was making a cup of coffee it just popped right in the huge empty void that sits on top of my neck ..
        every atheist pagan wiccan i have spoken too say this if their is a god why does he allow children to die people to starve to death in aa world full of great wealth why wars ect ect …i say to them god gives us free will ..and poverty is man made because of greed ! and at this point iam doing well
        but then they say well why are churches so rich
        and i tell them because most of them are corrupt
        then they say to me well if your a christian why don’t you do something about it !!! its at this point that the christian message falls to the ground in pieces ! because
        too many of us fail to gods work we only see our own selfish sense of self preservation and ignore the whole basis of the message of jesus mercy love compassion even for the people that hate us and want to harm us ..god people are letting him down every day all over the world and he is the one being blamed
        for our failings to be ambassadors for him ! and whenn we see well dressed preachers in his gucci gear a nice rolex
        in a huge brand new church that would put to shame even the best
        or finest royal palace is it any wonder people reject this god
        of the elite and rich ?? this god that needs us to give our cash to make more fine buildings ? so when we ask for cash to do gods will we bettr make damn sure it goes to the right place or else
        we are in deep doo doo ! we are called in our own way i hear you say

        1. dave uk

          well lets hope it is god calling us and not something else !! you judge a tree by its fruit don’t you . hows your fruit ? and what sacrifice do you make for others ? if we are called to be christ like then we must sacrifice our own wants and needs for others who through no fault of their own are less fortunate than us . jesus showed this perfectly when he washed the feet of his brothers he was king yet he humbled himself in front of all of his disciples so i ask you this ? whos feet did you wash today ? your own ? you can
          oh yes we can all quote from the bible but do we practice what we preach ? now that is only known to you and god ..ok i just thought i would lay that on your hearts as basil and gonz like to say ..and it came right out of the blue out of nowhere

  22. dave uk

    now one last thing ..if i sound angry well i am

    2. Brother Dave…

      I guess I just feel prompted to tell you that I meant no disrespect to you, nor did I ever mean for you to think that I was saying that you don’t understand anything! I suppose I simply felt that you were jumping to some not-so-accurate assumptions about L.A. Marzulli, probably because of how upset you became after hearing about the planned trip to Mexico. (you keep making comments about them going down there to “stop the end of the world” and things like that, but come one, he never said anything to that effect…) It is clear that you are passionate about obeying God’s command to take care of those who are in dire need, and that you feel incensed by the gross amount of waste and selfishness that is rampant in the institutional church today. I feel I must tell you that I very much resonate with those feelings. I too have struggled with despair, anguish and frustration over the ridiculous amount of money that Christians spend on themselves in the name of “ministry”. When I was 18, I went on a “mission trip” for two years, and came back with my faith almost completely obliterated, after seeing how much time, energy and planning goes into simply raising more and more money. I spent years feeling like I simply couldn’t follow God because I could no longer be a part of any of that. I became very bitter. It was like I was fighting this personal war against the “system”, the hypocracies of religious institutionalism… I began to learn about many, many things that are taught in churches which are not really supported by the Bible. (“tithing” for one thing, was not practiced in the Early Church, and there absolutely was no paid, professional “clergy”, despite what we are constantly told today…) Fallen men are very good at twisting the Gospel in order to come up with ways to solicit money for their own “living expenses”. I have absolutely no empathy for that myself, and thus I feel that you and I are probably much more on the “same page” than you might think! Eventually Jesus had to bring me to a place where I could let go of my burning anger, (while not backing away from what I know to be true…), because I had to realize that I myself had been a part of “the system”, and God had managed to bring me out of it, (after many years), to a place where I could finally lay down all the worldly, material advantages that I had once held so dearly. God showed me incredible grace and mercy, and I have had to learn how to be able to turn around and show that to others as well!

      If you feel that this trip that Marzulli was talking about is nothing more than a selfish appeal for money to go on a frivolous trip to Mexico, then you are certainly entitled to your convictions, but I would only encourage you to try and maintain a measure of grace towards him. If he truly has misheard the voice of God, and is planning such a trip totally “in the flesh”, then God certainly has the ability to make that known to him, in His time… I was never actually trying to “defend” the trip itself one way or another, but was simply saying that your opinion about a trip to Mexico shouldn’t prompt you to start making a whole host of other assumptions about a person’s understanding of the gospel or their own Salvation….

      Personally, I have seen so much waste, so much money spent on far more questionable endeavors, that I suppose something like this doesn’t actually seem like the hugest deal to make a massive fuss over. I know that $12,000 can seem like a whole lot of money when you’re considering things like homeless children who live their entire lives picking through garbage or stuff like that, but at the same time, $12,000 is a drop in the bucket compared to what Christians (particular in rich, Western countries), are spending all the time on things like flat-screen t.v.’s for the church lobby or whatever. At least these guys are doing something, and if you allowed yourself to stop and really hear them out, you would see that they absolutely preach the Gospel, the blood of Christ shed on the cross for our sin, and that is something you find less and less within the walls of “Christian” institutions these days. If you feel that you could never support a trip like the one Marzulli and Dizdar are planning, then by all means, don’t give them you’re money! But all I’m saying is that I would hope that you wouldn’t let your opposition to something like that become a foothold of anger and resentment. (I know all too well how the Enemy can use that anger and bitterness in your heart…)

      Overall Dave, I hear your pain. I’ve been there. I’ve been so angry and sickened by all that calls itself “Christianity” that I’ve almost gone insane. (heck, I’ve been that guy leaving 50 angry, ranting comments on a blog because something something just really got under my skin!) To me, your passion and heart is refreshing, when compared to the apathy and lack of any opinion at all found in so many religious circles. I never meant to make you feel like I was attacking you, and if I came across that way, I very much apologize. (I know I have tendency to start totally debating with people, when in my own head I just think I’m “conversing”, but I’m working on it!)

      I know all this stuff about conspiracies and the NWO and UFO’s and everything else can seem like a collosal distraction and waste of time, money and energy. I definitely think we all have to be cautious not to let it overshadow the centrality of Jesus and the gospel! However, with stuff like the UFO phenomenon, I would have to say that I believe there is a valid need for Christians, (who understand what times we are living in), to stand up and speak out to the Church and the World at large about these things, and to show that somehow (and nobody seems to know quite how, yet…) it all very much seems related to the coming “Great Deception”. It is not because of a need to overanalyze “the bullet we will be shot with” as you put it, but to simply be aware of what the Enemy is doing, IN ORDER THAT WE MIGHT SEE MORE PEOPLE WHO CHRIST LOVES AND DIED FOR BE SAVED!!

      There is more poverty in the world than just the financial kind. There is more hunger in the world than just the longing to fill a stomach. People everywhere are dying, even when they are highly “educated”, well-fed and “lacking nothing”. The Enemy works to build strongholds in the minds of men and women, to blind them even further from the Truth. This is just as much a part of the “reality of the gospel” as giving people physical food and drink. It’s not that one element supercedes the other, but it’s all there, and only God is big enough to tackle it!

      Anyways, just wanted to say that I do hear so much of what you’re saying, and I don’t want to be sending anything but love your way. I wish the world was such a place that it was really just as simple as sending a check to feed the hungry. I honestly wish it was only THAT BAD… I really wish things like UFO’s were merely stuff from the movies. I really wish there weren’t people out there who are so, totally deceived that they participate in things like human sacrifice or dark rituals or crazy sexual bondage and all the rest. All that stuff should break our hearts as much as hearing about people not having enough to eat. Who is to say which type of pain is the worst? But glory be to Christ alone because He has brought us the answer to ALL the pain and ALL the suffering.

      I pray that He will work to end the suffering you are feeling as well, because it is just as real, and just as important to Him.

      In Christ, much love…

        i have been unable to respond to your post as i have been by my mothers hospital bedside for the last 5 days while watching the life drain from her frail 83 yrs old body bit by bit she is still clinging to life by a thread after suffering a massive stroke that left her locked inside her body unable to talk eat drink move anything apart from one hand she only has hours to live if your a brother then pray for her i am too exhuasted to type any more sorry

      2. Dave uk

        i have just read your post and yes you understand my frustration i realy do hate the corrupt world we live in i see it everwhere i go my mother has been left to die in a hospital room given zero treatment other than huge doses of morphine becuase of her age 83yrs she was writen off as a no hope case ! they told us she would not last 48 hours and she was unaware of anything due to the massive bleeding in deep in her brain and we should not worry because she is not suffering ! well she has been hangung on to life for a week now i had to almost cause a riot screaming at them calling them murders for not even giving her a saline drip ..within 3 hours of them putting in a line she opened one eye and started giving hand signals in responce to questions she is locked inside her body fully aware of everything going on around her yet these doctors still won’t treat her due to strict goverment rules yet our goverment have spent mountains of money on wars all over the globe our own leaders award themselves huge pay rises and bonuses yet a frail old lady that could recover and clearly is and very much wants to live is being exluded the basic things that could keep her alive water food in fact due to the last weeks events i have serious doubts about god ! where is this mercy ? christians rant on about all the time why is this dear harmless woman that never did a bad thing in her life and has always believed in god being made to suffer . yet this god tells some american to get $12’000 and go off to some old ruins in mexico ? when people all over the world suffer god makes no sense to me at all or is he just plain out negligent ! none of this makes any sense to me anymore . im done here i have to go watch my mother die now sorry i have to go

        1. Dave, I’m sorry to hear about your mother. I pray that she recovers.
          Good people suffering is hard to accept, especially when many among the wicked appear to thrive.

          I have found it hard dealing with the death of a loved one, who was much younger than your mother and was affected by malpractise and misdiagnosis. He was a good Christian and did not deserve it either. I would not wish the manner of his passing on anyone.

          Since then I have found it very hard to believe that prayer achieves anything. Experiecing loss and anguish can make you feel betrayed and lost. I have been through what you are currently enduring. Though I still do pray occasionally, mainly because I believe that God has a plan, and wether I agree with it or not is beside the point.

          There are many writers that have tackled the issues you are facing and make a far more sense than I. When you are ready, perhaps you should read and meditate on some of these books. If you would like I could suggest one or two to you.

        ps i saw a ufo the other night a bright star like object low in the sky following an air liner it had no nav lights and it was tailing the plane and made no sound ! and was matching the planes speed

        1. Dave, I am terribly sorry to hear about your mum. I myself have two family members who are terminally ill right now, and I know how incredibly difficult it is to go through such a process. I know the feeling of despair, when it feels like God just isn’t listening anymore, that hope is gone, and have even come frighteningly close to ending my own life. It is easy to find ourselves, like Job, lamenting the trials and inequalities we can experience in this fallen world. I understand your frustration with the ridiculous frivolity of things like the “Diamond Jubilee”. Things like that are what people cling to in order to distract themselves from the misery that is all around us all the time. It’s no different than the fantasy of Disneyland or Christmas nostalgia…

          We live in dark times, and they are darker still because most people carry on as though none of it were happening. I do not doubt that you could very well have seen a ufo. Do you ever wonder why God has allowed you to be here, in this time, seeing all these things? God has allowed your eyes to be opened for a reason, but it is not an easy path to walk. I write this with tears because I know how lonely and maddening it can be. But you are not alone Dave. God’s love is so deep for us, He can empower us to endure things that might seem unbearable. In these coming times, we are faced with the prospect that at some point, we may lose our homes, our families, and our very lives. Would that prove enough to make me turn my back on God completely? Do I have the faith to cling to Him if everything I love was taken away?

          All I know is that He is ultimately the only worth clinging to… Everything we have, everyone we love, will succumb to death and decay at some point. But HE can restore all things. He can bring the dead back to life. He will create a new heaven and new earth. He will reward those who love him. He loves us so much, He did not spare His own son…

          Praying for you today, and your Mom. I pray that Jesus lifts you both your hearts so that you know that He is with you, right now, in the midst of your pain. Blessings.

    Dave from Uk, LA Marzulli supports himself and family from the sales of his cd’d dvd’s and books. And YES the man knows what he is talking about. IF you do not like or agree with him, you have the option of not listening. By the way, are you hung up on your own text. How many posts can you make and really say nothing? “i did not come here to make friends or be popular i bring a sword!!!! i have abandoned my pride and ego ! i hate money and even more what mankind will do to get his grubby hands on it” I explained why he talks about his books. Try bringing compassion instead of a sword! what was it Paul said? Oh yea, a worker is worth of his hire. Think before you speak or in your case post!

    I’ve just discovered you guys and am going through these interviews. I’m liking what I’m hearing in general.Its reminding me of things that I knew but have forgotten. My one criticism is . about the discussion of ex-nilo creation.The Hebrew used in Genesis makes it clear that ex nilo creation is wrong, God used pre-existing materials to create the earth, He formed man out of the earth. so again used preexisting materials.
    Other than that I love the work that you guys do. It inspires me to try to do the same thing myself.
