Is politics the works of Satan?

Question: Saint-Germain mentioned earlier that we could do something for our country by being interested in politics or doing something in that direction and this is a rather new idea for me because I used to be a part of a religion that teach that all current politics were a part of the fallen mindset, Satan and his demons that are reigning over the Earth. Well, I'm not believing any more the way I used to but then I just think about why did Jesus not show interest to have some more political power in Israel as they wanted to make him into a king?


 

Answer from the Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Holland in 2017. 

 

Saint Germain: It is clear that the political arena has been a tool for the fallen beings and the dark forces but this does not mean that politics is inherently evil. Politics is, as any aspect of human life, simply a tool that can force people into situations where they actually need to raise their awareness in order to get out of certain problems that they have created for themselves. Politics is a learning tool just like everything else. 

There is nothing inherently evil about this and it is simply the Alpha and the Omega. In a more golden age society it will be seen that the spiritual field is the Alpha and the political field is the Omega, but both are needed because you cannot create a functioning society only by having the religious people define the rules for that society. You can see an example of this with the Sharia law in Muslim countries. 

In an ideal society, there will actually be a spiritual aspect that is focused on raising people's consciousness and giving them a greater vision, helping them reach higher levels of Christhood. Then, when they have reached a certain level of Christhood, then they are qualified to go into politics and now start serving their nation in that arena in terms looking at how do we make the practical aspects of society work.

Both are needed, but of course in an ideal situation politicians have a certain level of Christhood or they allow the people to vote and then are satisfied with that this is the people's learning opportunity. There is nothing inherently evil about it. It is all what you make it. You can certainly turn around and see that religion has also been a tool for evil and certainly been a tool for Satan in many cases, including certain Christian branches of religion. 

Why did Jesus not encourage his followers to do this? It was because you were at a different time where the collective consciousness was much lower. Jesus's goal was to set forth an example that, first of all, it is possible to reach a higher state of consciousness, and therefore initiate this movement where people could systematically walk the path to Christhood. 

It was not that Jesus necessarily ignored politics or thought it was evil or unnecessary. It was just that Jesus took embodiment at a specific place, at a specific time in history. In the Jewish nation at Jesus' time a big political issue was the Roman occupation. As we have said, Jesus did not come to be the warrior king that would free Israel from the Romans. That was not his issue and that is why he tended to stay out of the political arena. 

In today’s age, when the consciousness has been raised and when there is more awareness and more teachings about the path to Christhood, it is a natural part of your path to Christhood that you also begin to look at: “How can I serve the whole? How can I help other people? How can I help society?” This does not mean that all of you need to be experts in politics, all of you need to study it even, as Mother Mary just said. It does mean that for some of you it will be part of your Christhood to know about politics, to take an active part, or even to speak out and state these new ideas and new ways to look at the field.

Again, when you hear someone say this very generalized statement, for example, that politics is the works of Satan, you know you are dealing with people who are completely trapped in black-and-white thinking. Of course, with all the teachings we have given on the need to transcend black-and-whiteteaching, you have a good opportunity to make use of that, to simply put that behind you and see that it was a necessary experience you needed to have but you certainly do not need to carry it with you for the rest of your life.

New website about evil

2018-08-11

I have created a new website explaining the origin and methods of evil (the fallen beings).

www.explainingevil.com

I hope you will recommend this site to others and help promote it.

In creating the site, I have been mindful of the fact that most people today surf the net on phones or tablets so I have attempted to keep the articles relatively short.

It has not been my intent to give people all of the information about evil but to give them a good overview.

I hope this site can inspire others to create sites that relate the teachings of the ascended masters to specific topics.

The site is created in Wordpress, which I think is the easiest way to create a website. There is a lot of free manuals or Youtube videos about how to use Wordpress.
