Book criticises world religions
Church of God? or The Temples of Satan criticises and condemns all world religions for their lack of spiritual knowledge and perception, and blames them for the Spiritual ignorance, intolerance, and hatred which, it is claimed, are the roots of worldwide terrorism.
The book classifies all religions as nothing more than “temples of Satanism” and spiritual ignorance.
As far as Christianity is concerned, the author builds a strong case indicating that its orthodox doctrines did not originate from Jesus, but from St. Paul, and that Paul’s behaviour demonstrated many symptoms of paranoid schizophrenia and narcissism. These observations are supported by detailed study and quotations from various sources. Early Christian scribes and theologians are also accused of editing, corrupting, mistranslating, misinterpreting, and even destroying many of the ancient texts. Other world religions are also categorized in a similar way. None, according to the author, represent the genuine teachings and revelations of their historic Master(s) or Prophet(s).
Clear and persuasive evidence also indicates that Jesus was not the first and only Messiah, but simply one in a long succession of such “god-men.” The book is not anti-God, far from it! Indeed, the author claims to have experienced many Divine revelations himself. He explains his own Spiritual experiences of meditation in great detail, and describes how they differ from what St. Paul claims to have experienced. In fact, the central theme of the book explains how every seeker of Truth may actually achieve, here and now, true Enlightenment and Gnosis – the very purpose of life itself! It also unravels and explains many previously misunderstood or undisclosed mysteries and obscurities within the sacred texts of Judaism, Christianity, and other religions.
The book provides evidence that so-called Christianity actually teaches in opposition to Jesus. For instead of revealing personal Gnosis and Experience (or Vision) of God here and now (as, it claims, Jesus did), religions only offer theories and speculation – a variety of erroneous theological beliefs, empty promises, futile exoteric rites and rituals, and false hopes for the future – nothing more than blind faith in hollow words and repetitious prayer.
With this book’s release on November 22, it will be interesting to see what the world’s religious organisations will have to say. How they will answer the many questions, facts, and observations put forward. The author says he expects that they will simply sweep it under the table as they usually do when confronted with difficult questions.
About the Author:
Robert A. Anderson was born and educated in the United Kingdom. Soon after graduating from college he moved to South Africa. There, after a long and committed search, he discovered the “meaning and true purpose of life” by meeting a genuine Spiritual Master and being initiated into the “Knowledge” of Truth (Gnosis). He then entered an ashram (a Spiritual shelter) for two years, practicing his Master’s techniques for Meditation. In 1982, back in the UK, he started researching the necessary materials for writing the present book. He admits that he is not a particularly talented author, but nevertheless felt that it was necessary to make an attempt at explaining his experiences of Truth in clear and simple terms – not the obscure technical jargon of so many “mystical” works.
