If in “Christianity” you have no connection to the gospel, then rituals have to be used. A traditional domain of the Roman Catholic Church. Here, the churches that were once Protestant and returned as daughters clearly have some catching up to do.

Nothing remained of the gospel

The “re-assimilation” of the once Protestant churches into the Roman Catholic mother church appears to be “theologically complete”. While pagan Mithraism, in conjunction with the mythologies of ancient Egypt and Hellenism, was previously the traditionally exclusive core component of the Roman Church, the representatives of the so-called evangelical church houses also show a very strong affinity for this “Sun God” who is newly appearing in the East. , who brings order to chaos every day. All of this is linked to a “generation-appropriate” infantility.

Strong inclination towards rituals

Ritual

Strange rituals instead of morning devotions

A Protestant “theologian” who is obviously very fond of “cosmopolitanism”, spiritualism and Mithraism, completed his studies in Munich and, in his current role as a youth synod member in the synod of the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD), is also committed to the next generation in society. In a conversation with the EKD’s mouthpiece magazine, this pastor talked about his ambitions for the book he wrote “Rituals for Hipsters & Saints and Everything in Between” (Source).

Rituals in everyday life can be valuable companions in life, according to the priest. He himself was able to gain positive experiences with it and therefore compiled numerous rituals that he had already celebrated and wrote about them. This “big, colorful mix” consists, for example, of a prayer with your first coffee in the morning, a “fuck-up prayer” (!), or a blessing when moving into a new apartment. As a pastor focused on youth, he sees great potential in young people, especially the “millennials” and “GenZ”. They themselves have barely gotten to know traditional rituals and that is why they are very open to such rituals, according to the “Protestant clergyman.”

“Coffee & Cosmos Liturgy”

The priest himself starts his everyday life with a “Coffee & Cosmos Liturgy”. This consists of a short prayer with the first morning coffee. This is somewhat reminiscent of the chaos on the first day of creation. Before the day dawned on him, the priest quietly gathered his coffee, his God and himself. The following prayer serves this purpose:
God open my heart and my mind as the day opens before you.
At the dawn of the world, everything was in chaos. You brought order that makes life possible.
Come into my morning now and help me give structure to my day.
Arrange the sea of ​​my feelings so that I can see land.
Clear the fog of my thoughts so that I gain clarity.
Rise over my soul like the warm sun in the morning.

The Protestant pastor also favors the suggestion of a Catholic colleague. In the book he classified the ritual of the “gin and tonic liturgy” for the evening of Maundy Thursday. Maundy Thursday and gin and tonic have this bittersweet taste in common.

Open to further ideas

While collecting ideas for other rituals, the priest came across suggestions such as a ritual “for the cigarette afterward, a hammock ritual” and a prayer of thanks for the “inside of the refrigerator door.” This ritual can be carried out by anyone who eats their food in an open refrigerator.

Those who consciously incorporate rituals into their lives can help themselves, according to the “theologian”. This could break routines that are not good for you. In addition, it has been “psychologically proven” that rituals provide stability in life and everyday life. This also applies to society on a larger scale.

The “pastor” tops the church of Rome

Childish

Infantile Rituals – Lots of glitter without content

“Fuck-up prayers, gin and tonic liturgies and open refrigerator door prayers,” all packaged up as spiritual rituals that make everyday life easier. Here this Protestant “theologian” tops the consistently pagan rituals of the mother church of Rome with an unparalleled infantility. Generation Z, which is open to pretty much everything, and their preconditioned level of education (Info)

The “prayer” presented by the priest, who also acts as a “Jesus headhunter” for finding young talent in the area of ​​the St. Luke’s Church in Munich, reveals not only his light-year distance from the Gospel , but also the identity of “his” “main god” worshiped within a pantheon. Apparently his spiritual-emotional level is also characterized by “contemplative meditations” modeled on the Ignatian exercises.

With the sun comes order in the morning

Creating order out of chaos every morning is reminiscent neither of God (Father) nor of Jesus Christ, but of the pagan “sun god” Mithras. It is he who rises every morning in the form of the sun in the east and with his light (“light bringer or light bearer”) brings the chaos into an orderly form before he drives across the firmament in his “chariot” and watches, how he could save this world. Whether this “theologian” even realizes what kind of “faith” he is secreting, or whether he does so intentionally, is another matter. In the entire conversation between the “pastor” and the mouthpiece of the EKD, the word “God” was mentioned three times and twice as “my God”. The word “Jesus” or “Christ” did not appear at all (remember: John 14:6). Only the Word of God is the stable anchor in this increasingly crazy world (Info).

It is not without consequences

Wolf in sheep's clothing

God knows his own and also the ‘others’

But it is precisely this Jesus Christ, who is not even mentioned in passing, that everyone will have to answer. Especially those who are responsible for the teachings that are packaged as Christianity and passed on to gullible people. Ezekiel 34:10:
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.

The so-called Protestant churches and their “theology” are completely finished. Hand in hand with their mother, they form a team that is clearly described in the Bible:

And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
Revelation 18:2
