Bill Etem

Biography

It's pronounced Bill EE-tem. Ex high school math teacher, ex lot of things.

B.A. in Mathematics from the University of Minnesota. Living in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. Single. Lived in Los Angeles for a few years. Same with Colorado. Lived in Mexico for 20 months, mostly in Oaxaca. Traveled round Europe for a few months after college.

My novels usually deal with kids who find themselves in dire circumstances where they must either do something courageous or else they will be crushed by the dire circumstances.

'Amanda's War,' 'Revolution,' 'Warrior Girls,' 'Single Moms' and 'Queen of Shadows' are not religious. 'Skool Dayz' is somewhat religious.

My main book is 'Constitutional History of the Western World.' I also have some abridgments of it. These books push Christianity, push the True Faith and the True Church. John 6. 53-55 says one must take communion to attain heaven and escape perdition. 1 Corinthians 11. 27 says it is a terrible sin to celebrate holy communion in an unworthy manner. For centuries the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church gave the bread and the wine to evil kings, to evil nobles, to evil henchmen etc. The typical modern Protestant church gives the bread and the wine to pro choicers, to pro gay marriage people etc. About this True Church, aka the Bride of Christ, aka God's True Church, the Church which Christ founded on a rock, you'll notice that every church claims to lead people to heaven. No church claims to be a false church which drags people down to eternal perdition. But wherever you have churches giving the bread and the wine to people who make no secret that they promote anti-Christian things, wherever you have churches celebrating holy communion in an unworthy manner, then you have false churches which lead people to perdition, though they delude themselves and they think they are God's True Church which leads people to heaven.

Matthew 26. 28, Jeremiah 31. 31-34, 2 Thess 1. 8 etc deal with the True Faith, aka the New Covenant / Gospel of Jesus Christ. Matthew 16. 13-19 deals with God's True Church, the Church which Christ founded on a rock. It's easy to imagine God having mercy on some little kid who dies before he / she has a chance to find the True Faith and True Church. Though there might be some exceptions to the general rule, the general rule is still generally valid. This rule says you must uphold the True Faith and you must be a member of the True Church in order to attain heaven and to escape perdition.

Revelation 13. 1-8 describes the whole world worshipping a multi-headed beast. It's unlikely people will worship a literal beast with lots of literal heads, so we're looking for a figurative interpreration. What about this: the people who worship false gods - and false gods are beastly because they lead people to perdition - the people who worship false gods worship this multi-headed beast.

A few miles east of Rock Island IL lies Atalissa IA, where not too long ago some retarded men were forced to work and live in filthy conditions. So we have a parable. What sort of parable?

Tons of confusion in Christianity over Matthew 16. 13-19 and God's True Church. Choose any church you want. Take the Mormons, or the ELCA, or some other church. It is insanity to risk hell by rebelling against this church if it is God's True Church. But if it is a cult, a false church that leads people to perdition, how do we get the poor people trapped in that cult / false church out of it?

If the gates of hell have prevailed against the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church, if both are lost in heresy and neither is God's True Church, if both drag souls down to perdition, then, perhaps, the gates of hell have also prevailed against some, many or all of the Protestant churches. So much depends on finding this Church which Christ founded on a rock, Matthew 16. 13-19.

Advancements in Dumb-Ass Theory, and for that matter in Genius Theory, have stagnated in recent decades. Both disciplines remain alive only by living on the past glory of Hunza, Kopecki, Taylor, Lawrence and Kirokota.

The ABCs of Christianity
Price: Free! Words: 24,980. Language: English. Published: December 5, 2013. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Biblical Commentary / New Testament
The Roman Catholic crucifix is an image of a Roman Catholic version of Jesus, a version who says Rome leads people to heaven. If the True God / True Jesus says Rome is lost in heresy and leads people to perdition, then an image of a version of Jesus who says Rome leads people to heaven is a lie. If the crucifix is an image of a lie, then the image of the beast, Revelation 14. 11, comes to mind.
