Excerpt From Newsletter
In the articles I have written for The Voice of Elijah® and The Voice of Elijah® Update over the past few years, I have made a point of using incendiary terms like fool, idiot, imbecile, and moron to describe those who stubbornly reject the Truth of The Teaching. My purpose has been to provoke people who strive to be politically correct and give them no good reason to give credence to anything I say. That technique works rather well because we all respond more or less unfavorably to anyone who would dare speak so derogatorily of others. It is just another of those quirks of human nature: Rather than first considering whether or not something is true, we all ignorantly tend to accept or reject things on the basis of how they are said. That is especially true of anything that we deem too dogmatic. It is just more evidence of the stubbornness that Satan, the Master of all Fools, has successfully inculcated into the human psyche.
I only mention the mastery that Satan, the Fool, has over all other fools as a segue into what the Prophets say concerning those who stupidly continue to epitomize the absolutely awesome ignorance of their father, the Idiot. That Lamebrain, Satan, had direct knowledge of the Truth, having heard it from God Himself. Yet, because he valued his own thoughts and ideas more than an honest evaluation of what Someone Else had to say—no matter how He said it—he turned away from the Truth he had heard and stubbornly walked off into the darkness he now rules. To put it bluntly, Satan became a fool because he placed no value on a knowledge of the Truth. If you think folks like him are not a dime a dozen today, you are obviously content to live in a reality of his own making. Stay tuned, coming attractions may change your mind.
