    For you Christians/Bible Believers out there I just wanted to let you know that there's a new group built for us. It's nothing more than light discussion and prayer. If you have a prayer request just post it there. It's by invitation only so you can post in peace. If you're interested in joining just PM me and I'll send you an invite.

    Howdy. This particular group was designed for Christians who just want to hang out with other Christians.

    I've never actually heard of anyone believing the Bible and worshiping the biblical God AND being a pagan at the same time.

    Anyway, the other members and I discussed whether or not we should enjoin ourselves (in the group setting) with non-Christians and we generally decided that it would be best not to for the time being.

    However, I strongly suggest that if non-Christians want to start a religious group of some sort and make inter-religious-ecumenism the defining foundation for that group - then go for it. We gotta live boldly. :D

    None other than the infamous Aleister Crowley claimed to have done that very thing at one point. It was during the Roaring 20s, when he was an eminent member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.

    I prolly shouldn't do tihs, because I'm genuinely afraid that playing this invocation gives him (and more importantly, the devil) indirect glory, but here goes. Note how he uses the term God—not gods—several times in it:

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqDTpDJSqH0]Aleister Crowley, The Call of the First Aethyr[/ame]

    Oh, btw: Count me in the study group, too, DriftingSand my man.

    Well, we already have 12 members and two pending. Not bad for a brand new group.

    I love Aleister Crowley! He was so brilliant! Rarely do you find such a truly gifted and intelligent man so genuinely fascinated and dedicated to the Occult! I really wish I could have been alive to meet him! Even though my O9A brothers and sisters call him "Creepless Crowley" lol

    I also loved the Golden Dawn's teachings. Israel Regardie in particular wrote some amazing material on it.

    I'm sure he was a highly intelligent dude. I hope he's enjoying the warmth of his new home. :D
