    I guess I’ve never really taken the kingdom nonsense seriously. Its just Judaizing. There is no need for a present kingdom nor a future kingdom. This is the foolishness of the Jews. “The kingdom of God is within you” is only a realization that God has always been king so the kingdom cannot “come” as if it didn’t exist before. Those who believe the kingdom began at a certain point or will, they serve a weak limited pagan god lowercase (like the Jews do). In the Lord’s prayer “on earth as in heaven” modifies all 3 first petitions (sanctify thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done) and thus does not pray for the kingdom to come as if it was not here before but for an increase in our understanding that it has always been here, inside us, because God has always been king.

    As for the Salem Witch trials I believe the history has been mythologized but what actually happened was those providing abortofacients were executed. The accusations of witchcraft were made up to prevent the next generation from understanding what had occurred.

    The rhetoric you quote….”do you not know you are an Eve and must bear the punishment of your sex?” proves my point. The punishment is pain in childbirth. These “witches” were abortionists. Its mythologized to keep the younguns from understanding what was going on.

    Again when Luther says someone about women without childbirth and Aquinas says its ok for them to die in childbirth, the context is clearly opposition to abortion which is what “witchcraft” has ever been a cipher for, even in the Old Testament “thou shalt not suffer a witch (abortionist) to live.”

    “Having sex with the devil” in their terminology means having sex with a rando and aborting the child.

    Yeah ah these comments are getting really weird. Anyway glad you guys were able to do another conference before the end of this year. It makes me wonder why more people don’t reference your work – especially with many of the historical connections you make with the Aus Forum and all.

      Thank you. We think the conferences are important. In the future I hope we can revisit the true history of Neo-Calvinism, which has been swept under the rug or rewritten.
