What is your view of christians and christianity?

A genius tool used to take man from primitivism to higher technological cultures capable of hitherto unknown levels of social organization? Lost causes? A successful resourceful multinational company dealing in specific types of soirees? A cult, akin to The Moonies? The enemy?

If you accept Liber Al as the book of this aeon then if you don't view Christians as "fools" (1:31) are you out of touch with RHK?
2.19 They shall rejoice, our chosen: who sorroweth is not of us.

2.21 We have nothing with the outcast and the unfit: let them die in their misery. For they feel not. Compassion is the vice of kings: stamp down the wretched & the weak: this is the law of the strong: this is our law and the joy of the world.

AC pretty well sums up my view in his New Comment to that particular verse:
It is necessary that we stop, once for all, this ignorant meddling with other people's business. Each individual must be left free to follow his own path.
Go in all ways contrary to the world.

If you are in Rome and worship Gold, you have to learn how to protect it. They might be efficient soldiers, but reluctant lovers.

Yeah, I think the creepy or strange vibe I get from Christians is that unconscious notion that they are locked into their own delusion and narrowness.

Sure, but the collective delusion is quite powerful. Like a school of Fish moving together to coordinate and protect themselves.
Humans have hearts the size and shape of a fish at an early stage of development.

The point about their lack of acceptance of the inherent Star of all, sometimes it's not blatant but it's insidious.

True Christians?

The simple. The merciful and their Myth.

They shall receive mercy.

This is the Law of Karma.

The Christians to the mercies? Never have I heard that cry before.

Grew up Irish Catholic in a Welsh Chapel community. The old joke is a Welshman is washed up on a desert Island and finds there is another Welshman already there, who has a built a house and a farm.
'Where is the Chapel though boyo?' the newcomer asks.
'Oh. Over by there - come have a look'
'Damn. It's marvelous. But what is that other building you made just over the hill?
'Oh that's the Chapel I don't go to'

Chapel goers do define themselves as to what they are not as much as what they are.

To be honest most Catholics think the other denominations are at best an inferior knock off , such as Anglican or High Church; or messianic hellfire weirdness such as the Plymouth Brethren; or raving madness such as or snake-handling good ol'time religion Westborough stuff. In my experience Catholics tend to understand and value Hinduism or Buddhism as much as than any heretical Christian 'nonsense'. They also seem to like the black Baptist churches due to their enthusiasm for singing. (Catholics like singing - most Christians seem to be awkwardly embarrassed about it and probably wish it was taken out of the rule book altogether - maybe to do with class)
Though also IME all Catholics seems to have a soft spot for Quakers.

I have noticed a change within the Christian groups. When I was younger church was way more conservative than it has become in these later years of my life. I was in a very conservative Baptist church during my formative years. They even dress differently now than when I was younger.
The Christian movement is being overtaken by a concept the bible of theirs completely reject. Feminisim. The feminist and equal right agenda is very apparent.
Women are now pastors.
A practice prohibited by their scriptures.
For it is not even permitted that a woman be allowed to speak in church. It says in one passage.
And in the book of Timothy it says that only a man can be a bishop...preacher pastor or what ever.
Even the homosexuals have churches and whatever is needed t9 fit whatever lifestyle one has.
It sure has changed a lot since I was 10.
Seems they are becoming pagan like in suiting there religion to their lifestyle and also are by doing do in danger of being absorbed. Which shows the invalidity of their specific message.
A few years ago it was claimed the remains of the Jesus and the entire holy family had been found and had been sitting in an antiquities museum since 1989. If this is true as many believe it to be, then this is the death of the whole thing. Which was based on completely impossible scenario.
Virgin birth.....um ok.
And Santa Claus makes toys.
And the Easter bunny has eggs.
You know what I'm saying and it goes without saying that if any person who adopts or adapts such doctrine to their life as a moral compass is insane.
It should never be forgotten for a single moment that the central and essential work of the Magician is the attainment of the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel. Once he has achieved this he must of course be left entirely in the hands of that Angel, who can be invariably and inevitably relied upon to lead him to the further great step—crossing of the Abyss and the attainment of the grade of Master of the Temple. (Magick Without Tears, Ch.83)
