Truth takes to the street in London
has no religion" in Paris turned into "God belongs in no religion or
politics" in London. On October 28 and 29 a party of apostles from
France strode along Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square and st-James
Park. The Londoners sympathized with their views.
that's not "populism", for which some Emails blame our mission. Being
populist is seeking popularity by crying out loud that the world could
get rid of all its problems just by getting rid of such and such a
person or thing, in this instance religion and politics and their princes,
their elite, their laws
and institutions. The Ares Pilgrims don't view things from this
simplistic angle. They think that "God belongs in no religion or
politics", because he belongs elsewhere. He belongs in the heart of a penitent.
It's in the man righteous (Rev of Ares XXXVI/19, etc.), good
(30/7, etc.) and free (10/10) that God reappears in the
world. So why isn't this painted on the banner? Because penitence,
a word that today's people misunderstand or even fail to understand,
can no longer meet the eye of the man in the street, who has lost a
good sense of his inner tranformation for his own happiness and the
world's happiness. This has to be spelled out to him, which needs a
talk, even a short one. Hence the banner to trigger it off!
Nevertheless, the mission issue "God belongs in no religion or
politics" is no flytrap. It is a profound truth. Once the first
impressions one has had in skimming through The Revelation of Ares
are dispersed, when one buries oneself in the book seriously, one
realizes soon that the Father does not distinguish between religion and
politics. The Father considers politics as religion's offspring.
Either, though it uses a different vocabulary, imposes its doctrine
upon men: a dogma here, a constitution and law there, and either
punishes the rebels for being sacrilegious. Either makes magnificient
promises. Not only are the princes, the priests and doctors religious
leaders and their staff, but also presidents, government members and
high offices of state and politics. Besides, in The Book the
Creator tells them apart only by the color, because they bring the same
power to bear over mankind: the white king, the black king, one
and the same thigh (XXXVII/14). And in The Revelation of Ares
from end to end the Father does not see himself in either.
Our apostles bring to England faith just as it has to be considered.
Not a man's passive expectation of Mercy and Paradise traded for his
faithfulness to his religion, but his active involvement in building a good
