2014 is the mark of the Year of Graduation for me. I had come to Gnosis, or knowledge of the Mysteries, and there is nothing mysterious about them. I graduated from College this year with a Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design; but I also graduated from organized religion.
I graduated with full honors from all Organized Religion: whether it is the Catholic Church, the Church of Satan, the Church of Lucifer, the Wiccan movement, the Atheist movement, Islam, Buddhism, Shinto, or any Church. Having my faith tested and tried, and gone through a break in my heart and a contrite spirit (cognitive dissonance) -- I have finally read the Sealed Portion of the Book of Mormon which is amongst us today.
Having read it, I completed my bridge to Gnosis and have finally entered into natural Worship of our Father. Prophets, priests, and kings no longer have any hold over me.
Is the Church evil? I'd say it's misguided. The people in it are not evil. But Jehovah is calling his elect out of the Church that bears his name. He is doing his work.
