How much of the bible have you read, Grigori? Comparing RHK to Jehovah is bizarre. They are not even close. RHK pales in comparison to the pure horror of Jehovah.Grigori said:I've also been thinking about the difference between the Christian 'trinity' and that of the BoL. There seems a type of inversion to me, the vengeful Jehovah moderated by a loving personified Christ, which seems the opposite of the loving Nuit, but the personified vengeful Ra Hoor Khuit.
Have you tried having a chat? He's a nice bloke once you get to know him.Grigori said:Which leads me to wonder, why such an impersonal "personified" deity? He seems much more a representation of the Aeon, than someone you'd want to have a chat to.
Everyone has seen the movie, Rocky. Well you are both Rocky and Apollo Creed in the fight at the end of the movie. Apollo Creed is your lower self with all of it's wants. He's dancing around the ring, winding up a knockout punch. "He's going down. He's going down!"Liber Tzaddi
15. I have hidden myself beneath a mask: I am a black and terrible God.
16. With courage conquering fear shall ye approach me: ye shall lay down your heads upon mine altar, expecting the sweep of the sword.
17. But the first kiss of love shall be radiant on your lips; and all my darkness and terror shall turn to light and joy.
18. Only those who fear shall fail. Those who have bent their backs to the yoke of slavery until they can no longer stand upright; them will I despise.

I'll give you a clue.Grigori said:Most of it, some bits repeatedly, though I didn't mean to draw a direct parallel between RHK and YHVH, more to comment on the difference of Thelema presenting a hard and difficult personified god, and Christianity's presentation of the soft aspect of their trinity as the personified god who is the savior from the angry primary deity. There seems an inversion of the pattern there to me.
