The Ten Commandments

  1. Have no other gods.

  2. Don't worship images.

  3. Don't mention Gods name in vain.

  4. Remember the sabbath day.

  5. Honour your father and mother.

  6. Don't kill.

  7. Don't commit adultery.

  8. Don't steal.

  9. Don't lie.

10. Don't desire anything or anyone that belongs to someone else.

The Second Commandment

The consequences of Godlessness: rising social costs that exhaust fiscal resources and much more.

4 "You shall not make for yourself a graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth;  5 you shall not bow down to them or serve them; for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments." Exodus 20:4-6

It's quite clear what the conditions are.  If we worship God and no one else, we'll do well.  If we don't and worship or serve other gods, we'll be in trouble—for a thousand generations.  Is it any wonder that we already see the beginning of that happening?  Russia, which actively tried to do what the feminists are trying to do here, may never recover from the social and economic chaos it is in.  We already pay the price for it too.  It will take many generations to alleviate the costs and consequences of the destruction of our families that are being destroyed in the name of the new gods.  Every Canadian, man, women and child, even every newly-born, carries his share of the national debt that amounts on average to $108,000 and is growing rapidly as a result of the attempts to address the mounting social costs that arise out the planned destruction of our families.  Along with that come the stresses that are turning increasing numbers of people into neurotics or worse.

"…some [feminist theologians] seek goddess worship as a practice. They advocate:

  1. Symbols of liberation from spiritual inferiority and personal and political powerlessness; a female superiority or a "manly" ideal.
  2. Revival of witchcraft (Wicca), which is a return to the goddess. Males witch-hunted, but the goddess will prevail.
  3. The old view of witchcraft as demonic and Satanic must give way to the spirituality of ecological wholeness and pantheistic pleasures.
  4. Paganism is the spirituality of the ecological movement. (Paraphrased from Margot Adler in the book, Drawing Down the Moon: Witches, Druids, Goddess-Worshippers, and other Pagans in America Today)

Starbuck, a modern witch, says that the goddess is the world.  She is in each of us, and can be known by each individual in magnificent diversity. Religion is relinking the divine within to outer manifestations in all of the human and natural world. (Paraphrased from the book, The Spiritual Dance)

Covens practice the goddess within. Magic is about connection.  The goddess within is viewed as pre-Christian, but historical contradiction is not valued by these theologians.  These views are articulated by Rosemary Ruether in an article in Christian Century, [whose title is] Goddesses and Witches: Liberation and Counterculture Feminism.  This article points out that much of feminist scholarship regarding the existence and role of goddess in history is simplistic and ideologically limited.  The feminists use history to claim original female power and goodness along with evil male conquest and suppression. A historical presence of female deities is not equivalent to their dominance.

Z Budapest says "After all, if Goddess religion is 60,000 years old or 7,000 years old, it does not matter.  Certainly not for the future!  Recognizing the divine goddess within is where real religion is at." (Also from the book, Drawing Down the Moon, quoted above)

Often, the new symbolism is based on mythology rather than historical precedent.

Some say Christianity is sexist.  They say that a male deity is equal to male oppression.  This distorts the Bible.  God is not male or female sexually.  But He is personal.  God has no sex organs, except for Jesus, the God-man, who was/is male in body.  The intent is not to depreciate women or exclude feminine traits.  BUT God is not a she.  He takes actions that are understood to be feminine traditionally, but His being is not described as feminine.  God is Father, not Mother.  There is a difference between fatherhood and motherhood.

[from Men and Women under Fire]

If many feel that one God is too burdensome for society and that adherence to His teachings caused many of the ills that afflict it, how can turning to literally thousands of mythical deities alleviate the "problems" that are alleged to have been caused by Christian morality?  How will substituting an individual personal goddess help us to become unified on a common code of ethics?
