Thanks to my friend I had an opportunity to see the videos of Mr. Peter Listkiewicz, lead blogger for the website Studio Za Próg. While I do not quite agree with all the views presented by him, I think that his recordings are quite solid and can make at least few people sensitive to certain issues. Therefore, I decided to post them regularly on the blog, along with transcriptions (for English-speaking readers the transcriptions are translated).
What do you think about Mr. Peter Listkiewicz’s views?
Part 1.: Religion – Sin
Transcription and translation:
The Church says that we are sinful – that we are incorrigible sinners. Is this true?
To some extent – yes. The mankind sins, suffers for its sins, and over and over again commits the same sins. It means that the effects of the sins committed teach us little, if something at all. The problem is that Christianity rejecting the doctrine of reincarnation, which clearly and logically defines the concept of sin, had lost the connection between the cause – that is the sin, and the result – the consequences of sin. In Christianity, these two concepts are divided by such an enormous gap that usually one does not associate one with another. On the one hand, Jesus (metaphorically, but clearly) said that you have to repay your sins to the last penny, on the other: Paul, that what you sow – you need to collect. Pay and collect should the one whoby sinning incurred a debt, and planted the seed, from which the crop must be harvested. Meanwhile, the Church believes in one life, and tells us about Heaven (for which you need to pay to the Church), and of Hell (which can be avoided if you pay). Both of these, of course, are awaiting us after death. The church cannot prove what happens to us after death, so only a few people believe these claims and feel guilty. Most of people identify their lives with the life force of the body, and believes that after their death, everything is finally over. If someone commits a crime, but is not caught and convicted, he appears to have escaped a fair fate. Vague tales of bliss in Heaven and Hell fire won’t convince anyone thinking because both, pleasure and pain, are associated with the body. While one rightly believes that death, depriving them of the body, ends the suffering, we do not realize, however, that the suffering will return in the next incarnation. In nature, nothing is lost. Church is not able to define the soul, because it knows very little about the soul and spiritual matters. The vaguer the Church’s explanations are, the less credible they become. The Church says that the body is here until the resurrection, and the soul goes to the afterlife. But the soul is the spirit, or vital energy devoid of senses. How does it feel pleasure and pain, or experiences bliss in Heaven and fire in Hell? In order to experience pleasure or pain – one has to have senses, consequently: the body.
What is sin?
According to the mystical definition, sin is all that one thinks, feels and does, because every action, whether mental, psychological or physical, has consequences that bind people to this world and force them to constantly come here. Nevertheless, the constant returns to this world are not in the soul’s interests, which should seek to break the bonds connecting it to this world and return to God. By sinning, the soul is delaying its return. Not everyone agrees with the following definition, because its next point is that good deeds attach the soul more to this world, because they bring pleasant consequences, such as a good and prosperous life without worries and problems. Misdeeds involve the soul less, because the consequences are often accompanied by suffering, poverty, severe and complicated life full of troubles and worries. So: good deeds manacle us in gold chains, and the poor in iron ones – while iron chains one wants to break somehow, one wouldn’t even think of breaking the gold. Severe life takes its toll, so that one day one begins to look for a way out. People who are unstable mentally and emotionally move to suicide, which, of course, is not the right option. Others seek refuge in religion, which, however, promises many, but gives little. Still some people are so fed up that they develop a vague longing for God, and finally – a strong desire to return. The soul comes to the fore and intuition tells us that if we want to change something, it has to be an internal, radical change. Then one gets help from the outside, and everything becomes clear.
However, to make it simple, one needs to stop sinning…
Yes, but one has to first notice that he/she sins, and it’s not that simple, because in general one believes that is totally fine with other people and the world, and that one is not doing anything wrong. It’s the contrary: it seems to people that they are doing the same great things. When people realize the truth, at first they try to avoid bad deeds. This code of ethics and moral helps, as it is identical in every culture, because it is based on the age-old mystical gnosis, is the universal recipe for life: you only need to follow it.
How about good deeds? Unfortunately, they also bind us…
Of course, it is better to commit good deeds, because one has more bad than good deeds on his/her reincarnation account. We do not know the contents of the account, so one better do well, because this way can lead to balancing good and evil in oneself. However, do we know what is good and what is bad? Are we able to recognize evil hiding under the guise of good? The concept of good and evil is very comparative and what’s good for one, may be evil for another. Common sense and logic tell us that if someone is suffering and starving, it’s no doubt that he/she had to earn it someday. There is no effect without a cause. We should watch not only from the perspective of the present life, but many lives.
The Church speaks of “the inscrutable divine verdicts” and due to the fact that God arbitrarily assigns to the man, one or another fate…
One is the shaper of his/her fate, and God through Satan only makes sure that we got everything that we should have gotten. Has God been so unfair to give one a good life without any merit, and drive the other to misery and suffering for no reason? If that were the case, where where would the wisdom, love, justice and mercy of God be? If God were inconsistent, biased, corrupted and broke the law laid down by Himself, the whole Universe would be in one big chaos, and we know that the World is a precise and perfect creation. If God acted arbitrarily in relation to unimportant ants, could one call him God? Church with one stroke of a pagan Emperor’s pen threw away the doctrine of reincarnation, and thus created a large hole in the understanding of the mechanism of divine justice. This resulted in making people believe in punishment for not committed sins and reward for the evil and wicked life. It’s as if a farmer had sowed wheat and collected potatoes. “Inscrutable are the judgments of God” is a primitive slogan, which is unsuccessfully used to plug the hole.
The Church says it can deface, or remove sins, and save at the end. How much truth is in these words?
These are the biggest lies. The whole power of the Church is being based on these two lies – the Church persuaded the people that God severely punishes for sins and, therefore, one needs to be afraid of Him. However, the Church has created a kind of gateway: one should pay, and the sins will be forgiven. Church will intercede for one to God and one shall leave the confessional temporarily cleared. And because sin is inherent in the human nature, the Church’s great business has been prospering for two thousand years, because people sin, pay and still sin. Sin cannot be removed. Sin is the loan incurred to the nature of other people. The debt needs to be repaid, and the one to pay is the one who committed the sin. But payment is not throwing money to the Church’s cans – for sin is paid in kind, one must bear the consequences. Jesus said this very clearly: only when one bears the consequences, does the cause disappear. Church blatantly cheating people by promising them that God will forgive sins when oneconfesses, incites a few “Hail Marys” and givesmoney. Isn’t that simple? This is a farce invented in order to increase the Church’s property. Therefore, for the crime of genocide killers were funded by churches, monasteries, and filled Vatican’s treasury withrobbed gold. This treasury is covered in blood of billion people.
It is, therefore, fraud, blackmail, extortion, and a kind of sacred despotism. Is not that a common crime that should be punished by law?
Yes, it is a crime, but our civilization has been created along with the scam and has accustomed to it. Church for two thousand years has been allegedly taking bribes for intercession with God. Blackmail and extortion is a criminal offense, but no one thought to get at the Church’s skin, and, under the power of law, to settle and outlaw this organization. All claims and promises of the Church are without coverage: the Church is able to neither forgive sins nor save. These are the two main promises on which the structure of the Church is based. The law should say, “Enough!” and invite the Church to prove, who until now has taken away the sins, and whom in the two-thousand-year history, the Church managed to save. However, it seems that it is an impossible task. At least for now.
