“Fen'Harel has been falsely named a god, but is as mortal as any of you. He takes no divine mantle and asks that none be bestowed upon him. He leads only those who would help willingly. Let none be beholden but by choice.”
“Have you ever seen a demonstrable example of equality in your entire life? Can it be glimpsed in any dog show or classroom? In any ping pong game or chess match? Of course not. It is a philosophical abstraction, something nowhere to be found in nature.” - Boyd Rice

We stood at the doors of Farthenwood as an announcement was made that we were coming out. While we waited, Vargan leaned over to me and said, “Who did you think you were, to stand up to someone like me?” I remained facing forward while I said, “I am Jaron, the Ascendant King of Carthya. You will regret ever bringing war against me.”
“There is a very strong correlation between the subject of royalty and the color purple in the scriptures. The word, royal, means that which belongs or pertains to a king. The children of a king are said to be his royal seed. The clothing of a king are his royal apparel. The cities of the king are referred to as royal cities. Thus, all the possessions of a king are royal possessions.”
“Satan is an imitator. He tries to imitate Christ, but in a wicked way. We see in the scriptures where his false or idol gods are clothed in purple: Jer. 10:8 But they are altogether brutish and foolish: the stock is a doctrine of vanities. 9 Silver spread into plates is brought from Tarshish, and gold from Uphaz, the work of the workman, and of the hands of the founder: blue and purple is their clothing: they are all the work of cunning men.”
“Trying to fill the emptiness of our hearts with a love for anything other than our Creator is like trying to satisfy our thirst by drinking salt water. It may numb our thirst for a moment, but it isn’t quenched. And soon it will return stronger than before. False gods will try to win the war in your life by promising something they cannot deliver.” - Kyle Idleman
We live in a time when many people are losing faith in the traditional Gods but mankind seems to have a desperate need for worship. So, we worship celebrities. Movie stars. Royalty. Athletes. Fake preachers and gurus. Yet they too let us down. They get caught in a scandal, they say something inappropriate when they are drunk, beat their wives. They bilk the trusting and are caught.
Then the false gods plummet to the Earth.
You see, just as we are fond of setting up false idols to worship so are we keen on seeing them fall. Never worship human beings. Human beings are frail and worship often tears them apart. They will fail you. They will always fail you.
Always think for yourself.
Believe nothing merely because you have been told it. Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher. But whBatsoever, after due examination and analysis, you find to be kind, conducive to the good, the benefit, the welfare of all beings - that doctrine believe and cling to, and take it as your guide.
– Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha, The Kalama Sutta
“ზურგს უკან ჩემს სამყაროს კარი მივუკეტე, ზღურბლს აქეთ მეგონა მიზეზს ვიპოვიდი, მაგრამ ჯერ მხოლოდ ბრალდება მოვისმინე და რელიგიაზე ყვირილი. დიახ, ამ თემაზე შეიძლება გავაგრძელოთ საუბარი, უტოპიაში აღმოვჩნდებით, ერთმანეთს ათეისტობასაც დავაბრალებთ, ოღონდ, მხოლოდ საკუთარი თავის ღმერთობის რწმენით გადავსებულები დავიშლებით და სამწუხარო, ისაა, რომ გოლგოთა არც ერთს არ გვექნება გამოვლილი. სამყაროებს კიდევ რამდენიმე ცრუ ღმერთი არ სჭირდება. ასეა, ადამიანებისთვის დაბრალება ადვილია, ვიდრე აღიარება.”
Jesus rescues you from all your false gods. All your worthless idols. All your attempts to find things that pass away to make you truly happy. He rescues you from these things and gives you real and true and lasting gifts: forgiveness of sins, life and eternal salvation.
