This is a site of mysticism based around different religions. The story behind the site is very inspiring and heartfelt i think even though alot of ppl think religion causes MORE PROBLEMS than it solves... (Which it does in alot of cases i believe)

I read, and read and read last night, and have more to read.



Essentially, Christianity isn't as much universalist as it's the final revelation of the universal religion. The cover-up job done by the Roman Church was almost 100 percent successful.

Actually, Anne Rice covered all of this in one of her Vampire Lestat's novels, called "The Devil Memnoch." Satan means "The Accuser."

But quite an interesting read anyways.........Stan

I read Memnoch. But I don't think that it covers all that the site we were talking about discusses. And I don't agree that Christianity is the final revelation of the universal religion.

The RCC and many Protestant denominations accuse God of creating an eternal hell to which the majority of humans are condemned.



That's "another gospel." It's not "good news."
