GOD'S JOYFUL SERVANTS

Posted by JOYFULSERVANT Oct 23, 2011

Well, I guess this is where I post my announcement the GOD'S JOYFUL SERVANTS--a children's 24 page poetry and picture book--is on Create Space and can be reviewed at https://www.createspace.com/Preview/1089753 although I'm not sure this is the place to post to Gallery Previews.



The original book is GOD'S JOYFUL SERVANT, a coloring book which can be downloaded for free--free in internet terms, anyway, where you must give your name and an email address to download the book--at http://godsjoyfulservant.com where you can also read the fictionalized version of my real life experience at age 9 and see the image I saw that day.


In October 2009, as an adult, I was told to spread this message, "Pray for MY (Christ's) return!" and shown how I needed to accomplish this by developing children's books, a children's TV Special, skits, plays, and a full length movie because Christ Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me...for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."


I hope and pray our books will be judged on the message and not the messenger since GOD'S JOYFUL SERVANTS and GOD'S JOYFUL SERVANT are not only for children, "...for it is to those who are childlike that the Kingdom of the Heavens belongs."  Therefore, the adults--preferably parents, grand parents, teachers, and youth ministers--will understand not only the paramount message as stated above but why both children's books are crafted to show a progression of fascinating yet false masters--a king, pharaoh, maharajah, czar, president, shah, and emperor--leading up to prayer and reconfirming Christ as the ONLY Master for Christians, young and old, to serve.

 

Both books are important in these most difficult times when nations are falling apart much like past civilizations did.

 

There is no greater time in our history when a return to moral and just values should precede all other considerations.

 

Christ taught us to be in this world but not of it.  All material things must not fall away for each of us while we become focused on praying for Christ's return.

Why I Mock Religion: In Defense of Parody

 

 

 

People ask me a lot if I "really believe in Eris." It depends on the person asking and the situation which ******** answer I'm going to give them. For example, if it's someone who's intelligence I respect, I go with some ******** about quantum physics and entropy, and if it's someone who I find gullible, I go for the prophet angle, and proclaim loudly that not only do I believe in her, but that she speaks to me regularly. I rarely, if ever say the truth, which is a flat "no."

 

I do this, because this act, in itself, is a mockery of how I see religious leaders act. From my understanding, the most successful religious leaders are good con men. Joseph Smith was a con man before he wrote the Book of Mormon. L. Ron Hubbard was a science fiction writer, which honestly, is a form of a con man, since writing fiction is essentially telling believable and entertaining lies. (That is not to say that Hubbard's work was ever believable or entertaining.)

The question I hope you're asking at this point is, "what makes con men good religious leaders?" The answer is simple. It's because when you ask a question that can not be answered, the only people who will give an answer, are liars. An example would be, "what happens when we die?" Well, if you're reading this, that means you're alive, and if you're going to be honest, the only real answer you can ever say, is "I don't know, I haven't died yet."

The fact that almost every religion has an answer to the afterlife question, should be a telling sign that they are all ********. The fact that just about every religion has a very different and unique answer, while being a true testament to human imagination, should also be enough to turn any logical, thinking person away from religion forever.

It's like deciding you want to write a book about sex, and interviewing only virgins. It is ridiculous, and most religious beliefs are just as ridiculous. So, I find, as someone who loves to perform, that parody religion is a wonderful tool to not only point out the ridiculous nature of religion, but to also pay tribute to the only appealing aspect of religion to me, the wonderful imagination involved.

 

I won't name any names, but I do know a few people who have fathers that are religious leaders in Jonesboro. Most of them have told me that at some point growing up, their father had confessed to them that they don't even believe in god, and that they only keep at it because it's an easy job. Which it is. Imagine if you only had to work one day a week. Sure, you're working on holidays, but only for an hour or two at a time. And to top it all off, you don't have to pay taxes.

So yes, I guess you could say I do believe in Eris, and that she does, in fact, speak to me regularly. And if you believe that, I have a few books I'd like to sell you.
