If he had known that he would not be forgiven, would have Cain killed?

Yes, because if he had believed in God’s forgiveness he would not have killed.

Jesus would not have been crucified.

Jesus would not be crucified even today.

Jesus will not be crucified even tomorrow.

Cain does not believe in Salvation.

Cain does believe in Judgment.

And because he terribly fears the Judgment he thinks that he can postpone it, sine die, eternally repeating his crime:

Jesus ChristCrucifixion.

Who, nevertheless, forgets him every time.

Vanishing the curse of the splashed blood.




“ . . . there are not good people or bad people – there are Abel and Cain and the world

in-between, into God or, without God . . .” (Theophil Magus)



The good deed practiced constantly upon a lot of our fellow men drives to the Cain’s deed.

No, not because – through his crime – Cain does not take the profit coming from the good deed did to him . . .

Yes, just because – through his crime – Cain does not take the risk to practice the good deed, this way becoming a moral human kind and, implicitly, a free man having a man dignity.

“ . . . the lake ‘ soft tremor

under the sun of July . . .

the shade of the beech . . .”



Goethe lived for 60 years, creating with his heart, soul, mind and all the power of his being the philosophic poem “Faustus”, as a fantastic and invaluable proof about throwing away your faith into God means.

To be more precisely what does the blood Covenant with Mephistopheles, alias Satan, means.

Even if it is a masterpiece of the humanity culture of all times and above time, it may that “Faust” (fist, in German) too rapidly makes knock-out the common man’s understanding.

Especially today, at the beginning of the third millennium when reading a book of good and true belletristic, from the beginning to the end, (oh, not in the least the genial philosophical drama sculpted by Goethe) well, this is the truth, a lecture of this kind had become a weird performance.

I give you Jesus Christ’s simple worn:

“No servant can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.” (Luke 16/13, and Matthew 6/24)

Because the much too used “advice”:

“Become brother with the Satan until you pass the bridge!”

(advice which never means and never will:  “Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.” / Matthew 10; 16/ Jesus’ advice for his disciples sent to into apostolic missions),

was, is and will be eternally and with no chances to escape:

Yes, you pass the bridge but paying the price of an endless brotherhood!

And it is sufficient.

Because the troubles can come out of blue and it is so convenient to pass the bridge immediately, easily . . .

And what is the big deal?

A little prick in your finger and with that tiny drop of blood you scribble your name on a piece of paper . . .

That is all! And you have already passed the bridge. As many times as you want. The world is yours.

WAS yours.

Satan’s gift of joy lasts less than a moment. But is eternally renewed.

God’s gift of joy is eternal.

But it is obtained only through Faith . . .

And the Faith . . .?

Do you remember how Jesus died on the cross?

“ . . . gray the vault of sky

and all the yellow leaves . . .

. . . in the graveyard – the blues . . .”



 Daca ar fi stiut ca nu va fi iertat, ar mai fi ucis Cain?

Da, pentru ca daca ar fi crezut in iertarea Domnului, Cain nu ar mai fi ucis.

Iisus Christos nu ar mai fi fost rastignit.

Iisus Christos nu ar mai fi rastignit si azi.

Iisus Christos nu ar mai fi rastignit si miine.

Cain nu crede in Mintuire.

Cain crede in Judecata.

Si fiindca se teme groaznic de Judecata, crede ca o poate amina sine die repetind la nesfirsit crima sa:

Rastignirea Lui Iisus Christos.

Care, totusi, de fiecare data il iarta.

In speranta ca noi il vom reinvia pe Abel.

Spulberind blestemul singelui varsat…





“ … nu exista oameni buni si oameni rai – exista Abel si Cain si lumea dintre ei, intru Dumnezeu sau, fara Dumnezeu…” (Theophil Magus)



Binele practicat constant asupra multora dintre semenii noştri duce la fapta lui Cain.

Nu pentru că, prin crima sa, Cain nu suportă şi nu profită de binele exercitat asupra lui – ci fiindcă, da, prin crima sa, Cain nu riscă să practice binele devenind astfel o fiinţă morală, implicit demnă şi liberă.

„…tremur lin pe lac/

sub soare de iulie…/

umbra fagului…“



Goethe a trudit 60 de ani, plamadind cu inima, sufletul, cugetul si cu toata puterea fiintei lui poemul filosofic “Faust” , ca pe o fantastica si nepretuita marturie despre ce inseamna a te lepada de Credinta ta intru Domnul Dumnezeu.

Mai precis, despre ce inseamna  legamintul de singe cu Mefistofeles, alias Satan.

Desi este o capodopera a culturii umane din toate timpurile si peste timp, se poate ca “Faust“ (pumn, in limba germana) sa faca prea rapid knock-out intelegerea omului obisnuit . Mai ales astazi, la inceput de mileni III, cind a citi cap-coada o carte de buna si adevarata beletristica (nicidecum geniala drama filosofica sculptata de Goethe) ei bine, asta-i adevarul, o astfel de lectura a devenit o performanta cam ciudata si de neinvidiat.

Atunci, eu iti propun avertismentul simplu al Domnului Iisus Christos:

Nici o sluga nu poate sluji la doi stapini; caci va uri pe unul si va iubi pe cealalt, sau va tine numai la unul si va dispretui pe celalalt. Nu puteti sluji Lui Dumnezeu si lui Mamona.” ( Luca 16/13 , Matei 6/24)

Fiindca, ultra-uzitatul si repede, mult prea repede imbratisatul indemn:

Fa-te frate cu dracul pina treci puntea!“ (indemn care nicicind nu a avut si nu are semnificatia lui “Fiti dar prudenti ca serpii si fara rautate ca porumbeii” / Matei 10; 16 /, sfat dat de Iisus ucenicilor trimisi in apostolat ), a fost, este , va fi vesnic si fara putinta de scapare doar atit :

Da, treci puntea, dar platind pretul unei fratii fara de sfirsit !

Si e suficient atit.

Deoarece necazurile pot aparea mereu, din te miri ce, si e atit de comod sa poti trece puntea imediat, fara prea mare bataie de cap …

Doar ce mare scofala?

O mica intepatura in deget si cu amarita aia de picatura de singe iti mizgilesti numele pe un petic de hirtie…

Si gata! Ai si trecut puntea! Ori de cite ori vrei, nu-i asa? Lumea e a ta!

A FOST a ta.

Darul de bucurie a lui Satan e mai vremelnic decit o clipita. Dar se reinnoieste vesnic.

Darul de bucurie al Domnului e vesnic.

Dar se obtine doar prin Credinta.

Iar Credinta…?

Iti mai aduci aminte cum a murit Iisus pe cruce?

“… cenusie bolta/

si frunzele galbene…/

blues in cimitir…”
