Wow, someone who "used the scripture to get what they wanted". That describes the entire edifice of Christianity!! I suppose you are all witches now by default, through guilt by association! Who knows, now you may be thrown in the lion's dens' just like we Gnostics were. Maybe now you will understand "being a martyr", the hard way. Just don't expect any love from Heaven when it happens. Remember that the council of Nicaea created a forged document claiming it was inspired by god THAT WAY, and therefore is guilty of the highest fraud. And they also committed "great" MASSACRES in his name, and condoned others with their presence "on the side of" those who did the butchery. Don't expect Jesus and Co. to smile highly on your service to yahweh, aka demiurgos, aka satan the devil. Try to remember how the Cathars died, and imitate, at least, their Nobility, though you certainly cannot live up to it. Just a curse from across time, from them to you, which I am happy to channel.
