EC 550
A Happenstance Witness and The Holy Ghost:

1 Visions of Continuous Death

God is dead—Nietzsche was among the first to say. But is this so? The truth is that He is continually being murdered by secular goverments, their elites, and quislings. The murder is not an actual physical murder as happened when Cain killed Abel, but a psychological phenomenon, an act in our heads.

The instrument of such murder is doubt.

Doubt is nothing new. Most of us have heard the phrase “I do believe, help me overcome my unbelief” (Mark 9:18-29). While most of us think that unbelief may be overcome by an act of will, Jesus (or John Basil) informs the father of the epileptic(?) boy that it [the cure] may happen “only with prayer”. But a footnote at the bottom of the page (of above link) adds that in some versions of the text the word “fasting” is added. In effect, are we being told that a cure may be affected “With prayer and fasting”?


I find the footnote an informative addition—as fasting is an ancient practice. Among native American Indians, fasting is known as “a vision quest”. Is Jesus suggesting that miracles are brought into being by visions brought on by fasting? Is this because fasting breaches barriers between this and that world? Is a vision a form of energy flow, a bridge between here and there?

Most people in our day have no idea what fasting means. Yet among the Islamic people, fasting continues to be common practice, for example during the month of Ramadan. This suggests that Islamic people are likely more assured about themselves than Christians, who have come to accept government strictures  and discouragements (no less persistent as government condemnation of ‘drug’ use) against seeking visions. This ought tells us that the government of the West has succeeded in persuading itself that murder of God has at last been as successful as the repeal of the Glass-Steagall legislation. In effect, the secular government of the U.S., celebrated the end of the second millennium by killing God, hopefully for the last time, in 1999. It seems most Americans are in agreement with the deed as no one is asking for a repeal of the repeal.
