“I was watching this song Crazy by Aerosmith on VH1, the show Sunday brunch and Aerosmith happens to be one of my fav rock bands. I was at my cousin sister’s place who is married for 5 years now. Well since it was a weekend, I had nothing much to do apart from playing with my 2 year old nephew, after a while I switched on the television and starting browsing through different channels which stopped @ VH1….I had just started listening to this song and my bro-in-law walked into the room. He saw me watching the show and asked me if I was watching a rock song (with an expression as if I was watching some porn movie with my little nephew around), and I very casually replied yes and then he asked me if I listen to rock music & I replied yes. And then what, it was like I committed a mortal sin. He asked me how long was it and I again replied 3 years now and then he went on to tell me how I am anti-Christ because I listen to Rock Music….I know like most of you reading this post even my expression was, “WHAT THE HELL”…Probably he related it this way, in Church when we sing a hymn it is said we praise God twice, so if I listen to rock music probably I am praising Satan…I wanted to tell him JUST GET LOST….But my bro-in-law that he is I couldn’t say anything, but just give him a blank look.
Well this incident took place about a year back! But what made me write this post? Well the other day we had been out after the office to McDonald’s (which I hate), with my colleagues and one of our ex-colleagues was joining us. We were having a normal chat session about his future plans and work, new clients etc… All of us being music lovers and appreciate or rather have a ear for Rock music were talking about the songs when we all of a sudden started talking about horror movies and then here came the topic of Anti-Christ…..Hotel California by Eagles, I read somewhere if played reversed has connotations to the Satan and the similar thing about Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin …….
A thought just triggered in mind…….. How many factions exist in this world, we may be aware about a few of them. I am sure most of us have heard and know about Agnostic theism, Atheism…. Let me elucidate a few……
FREEMASONS- ‘Born in Blood’, that’s the religion that they live on. They are a secret society in deception & is concealed. Once you are a apart of it, you have no choice as in, you can’t get out of it. This will give a better idea
ANTICHRIST– According to Christianity is every act and deed that is against Christ and Bible. Something interesting that I found.
I would love to elaborate and write on each of them(which I shall surely do)
Well most of us believe in religion and have some kind of faith, depending on our upbringing, our mentality, the exposure we have, the place we belong to. But then for everyone probably its a varied quotient. I wouldn’t want anyone to impose especially religion on me…..In fact I think most of us mold religion according to our convenience.
I would like to end with a quote from the book The Alchemist, ” Fear of suffering is greater than suffering itself”
