Who hasn’t encountered the Trojan Horse, unless you have a Mac of course! Trojan Horse is malware that appears to perform a desirable function for the user prior to run or install but instead facilitates unauthorized access of the user’s computer system. Malware is a harmful piece of software that looks legitimate. Users are typically tricked into loading and executing it on their systems.
The Trojan Horse is a tale from the Trojan War, as told in Virgil’s Latin epic poem The Aeneid and by Quintus of Smyrna.
Briefly, Greeks constructed a huge wooden horse, and hid a select force of 30 men inside. The Greeks pretended to sail away, and the Trojans pulled the Horse into their city as a victory trophy. That night the Greek force crept out of the Horse and opened the gates for the rest of the Greek army, which had sailed back under cover of night. The Greek army entered and destroyed the city of Troy, decisively ending the war.
Christianity created its own Trojan Horse known as……an eternal HELL!
The idea of an eternal hell where you are tormented by FIRE (without being destroyed of course) incessantly, while loved ones in heaven watch and rejoice from above, is implanted in the MINDS of church-goers. Once this FEAR firmly takes root, the church can then attack from WITHIN the gates of the human psychic with all manner of guilt trips, condemnations, and threats.
Kids early on in Sunday school are exposed to this Trojan Horse of Hell and grow up in fear of God or at minimum wondering if they will ever measure up.
How easy it is after a decade of hell fire and brimstone indoctrination to forget that we were: 1) created in the image of God, 2) made the apple of God’s eye, 3) God is unconditional love, and 4) We are one with the Father-Spirit-Consciousness-Vibration-Light-each other!
Don’t invite that Trojan Horse into your life and surely don’t get you kids addicted to such a scheme!. Life and God are too good to embrace such a concept.
As a spiritual-futurist, I have a BA degree majoring in history. One cannot know the future without knowing the past which holds clues to what is on the horizon. The world is in such a rapid expansion of knowledge that we are close to entering a tipping point that will forever change earth as we know it.
