Dear Babylon

Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. Rev.18

I can no longer “buy” into all the fancy glittery earthly “stuff” (garbage) that you, Babylon that great and mighty city, “sell”..Rev18:10-13… I just ain’t buying it anymore…..(alas for you)……..and you, Babylon, can no longer make me your commodity to do with me what you will…..for you, religious Babylon, no longer own my body or my soul…Babylon, so fine and rich, so proud, so admired and praised and lusted after, with self-exalting, self-important purple and scarlet, with fake gold and fake precious stones and fake pearls…goodbye…I have left you to your judgment, and shall rejoice.
