Do Modern Church Mithraic-Christians Have Salvation?

The following is a reply to a letter asking why the Original followers of Jesus did not believe he was God-Incarnate:

Jesus taught that the Kingdom is within you (see The Fatal Error Of The Church http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#third ) -- which means that there are inner realities of mind and being that is not of this world.  With respect to the beginning of John: The interpretation of the word The Word, is from the Greek word Logos -- meaning, The Mind of God (see http://TheThreeLies.com#Logos ).   And if you read the words of the Apostle Peter as preserved in the Homilies of his disciple Clement (see The True Prophet http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#TrueProphet ), you will find that the Logos or Son of God that is portrayed as the True Prophet, is equally within the mind of all of mankind.   And, as documented in the earliest of Church writings, Jesus was a true holy man who fulfilled the Law within himself, and became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) at his baptism.   Quoting from The Ebionite Nazirene Witness http://TheTenWords.com#Ebionite  
The witness of the disciples who personally knew Jesus, that he was a man who was Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by God -- but they changed the very words of God spoken to mankind -- i.e., "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee".  What these original Ten Words spoken by the Father to mankind presented, was that the original EbioniteNazirene disciples of Jesus remained totally faithful to the Gospel teachings.   If, as the very words of God spoken to mankind stated, that Jesus became the Messiah (Anointed) and Son of God by living the necessary Consecrated Life that enabled him to fulfill the Law within himself, then the truth of the Gospel is found in the witness of the Ebionite who held firmly to the position that Jesus "...was justified by fulfilling the Law. He was the Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely. Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ, for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity" (see Hippolytus,Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34).   When the Ebionite Nazirenes  make reference to the Law, this very much includes the Laws of Creation as portrayed in the words "...the designs/laws found throughout Nature and all of Creation".    That the historical man Jesus was a pattern for all of mankind because of his success in overcoming the Laws, is demonstrated in the words: "He was the Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely. Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ..."   And this confirms this statement with respect to the true potential of all of mankind that Jesus taught, as demonstrated in the words of Hippolytus when he wrote that they believed that when anyone "...thus fulfill the law, they are able to become Christs" (Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34 - see http://Ebionite.com ).   And this is why Jesus taught that he was our brother -- i.e., "Go instead to my brothers and tell them, 'I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God'" (John 20:17 NIV).     
That the historical Jesus was a true holy man who became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ by fulfilling the Royal Law within himself, is attested to at Acts 2:22 where Jesus is portrayed as "a man, attested to you by God" -- and this was demonstrated by God performing "mighty works and wonders and signs that God did through him in your midst".   If Jesus was himself God incarnate as believed by the later Romans, then these words portraying Jesus as a man approved by God through the works and wonders that God did through him, never would have been presented in this manner.  
The heathen and pagan mind of the mainstream of Gentiles always had great difficulty in understanding the difference between the man Jesus, the Indwelling Logos/Son of God which is representative of the Mind of God (see The Logos), and the One Teacher which Jesus commanded all who would call themselves his disciples and followers, were to seek out and learn from (see The True Prophet).   And it was the living of the necessary Consecrated Life that Jesus ordained, and the seeking of the Kingdom within, that enabled the historical Jesus to become the Messiah, and At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God.   And this is especially demonstrated in the words of Edward Gibbon with respect to the original position of the Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus that he was in “...supernatural union of a man and God... In their eyes, Jesus of Nazareth was a mere mortal, the legitimate son of Joseph and Mary: but he was the best and wisest of the human race, selected as the worthy instrument to restore upon earth the worship of the true and supreme Deity. When he was baptized in the Jordan, the Christ, the first of the aeons, the Son of God himself, descended on Jesus in the form of a dove, to inhabit his mind, and direct his actions during the allotted period of his ministry” (Gibbon; The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, V.4, P.366). 
The original Gospels prior to the very Words of God that was spoken to mankind was corrupted by the Church of Constantine, confirmed the above when at his baptism in the Jordan the actual words spoken stated: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee".  That the spiritually degenerate leaders of the fourth century pagan Church of Rome could not comprehend the difference between being the Logos -- and fulfilling the Law to become At-One with the Logos -- thereby manifesting the Logos in the world by proxy -- does not mean that the spiritually degenerate pagans are correct.  

In the subheading entitled The Original Teachings Have Nothing In Common With Church Dogma http://TheCall.Nazirene.org#OriginalTeachings , I demonstrate that the whole of modern Church dogma is totally based upon the faux-gnosticism of Mithraic and Manichaean sources -- supported by the removal of the most important spiritual teachings in the Gospels (see http://BibleCorruption.com ).   And in view of the fact that Mithraic initiates were called Christians prior to the birth of my brother Jesus -- i.e., The New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge confirms that the name Christian "originated outside of Christian and Jewish circles". The Mercer Dictionary of the Bible states that: "By the late first and early second centuries the name ‘Christian,’ which early believers avoided using of themselves, was beginning to be accepted". -- which means that you are a Mithraic-Christian who has virtually nothing in common with the original followers of Jesus or the original Gospel teachings of TheWay.   
  
The Mithraic-Christians believed that Jesus was the latest incarnation of the Mithra, the sun-god who was born on Dec. 25th and resurrected on Easter (Ishtar).  Mithraic (and Manichaean) teachings are based upon the doctrine of Original Sin -- which has no place in the Original Gospel Teachings (see The Folly Of Original Sin:  http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#OriginalSin ).  And as demonstrated in the above and on the links provided, the belief that Jesus was the latest incarnation in the Mithraic sun-god as taught by the Church of Rome which corrupted the scriptures to support their dogma, has virtually nothing in common with the Original Gospel Teachings of TheWay.   And since unlike you, I am not a Mithraic-Christian -- and having myself come to TheCall ( http://TheCall.Nazirene.org ) and have been taught directly by the Indwelling Logos (aka Son of God/True Prophet), I remain totally faithful to the Original Gospel Teachings of TheWay.   

You better pray that the belief in the Mithraic-Christ provides you the salvation you seek.   It appears to me that you have been seduced by the god of this world.

Using The Scriptures As The Key Of Knowledge

At a certain point in a person's spiritual development, they must become aware of the holographic reality of the Divine Pattern of Creation that is replicated into every aspect of the Whole.  In a holographic pattern, the reality of one level has parallel qualities on all levels.   The Gospel of Thomas states: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you..." ( http://GospelOfThomas.Nazirene.org ).  What you are actually perceiving is a reflection of your own mind.   Which is reflected in the Delphic Oracle in the words: "Heed these words, you who wish to probe the depths of Nature: If you do not find within your Self that which you seek, neither will you find it outside.  If you ignore the wonders of your own House, how do you expect to find other wonders?  In you is hidden the Treasure of Treasures.  Know Thyself and you will know the Universe and the Gods."

As enlightened mystics and visionaries, the authors of the scriptures understood the above reality as explored at http://AnInconvenientTruth.org .   And they used the allegorical language of the Soul in which this world of shadow-images ( http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org ) is composed -- which is why the Gospel of Thomas states to "Recognize what is in your sight...", because what you think you see is a reflection of your own condition of mind and thinking.   When you look at the scriptures you think you are perceiving Jesus -- but what is being presented is an allegorical portrayal of your own mind that is being reflected back to you.   And when you are going to use the scriptures for their intended purpose as the Key of Knowledge ( http://KeyOfKnowledge.org ), the rule is that once a person, place or thing is used in the scriptures, the reference is no longer to anything or person external to self -- but is portraying an aspect of your own mind.  As an example, the Gospel of Thomas states: “The disciples said to Jesus, We know that you will depart from us. Who is to be our leader? Jesus said to them, Wherever you are, you are to go to James the righteous, for whose sake heaven and earth came into being" -- and as explored at http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#James , unless you personify within your own mind and being what is portrayed in the name Jacob/James, then you will never understand either your own self, or any aspect of the life you are living.   And this is also true of when the scriptures utilize the name Jesus as a final pattern and reality of mind that you must bring about within your own Self.   And this is also true of all the rest of the names, places and things portrayed in the text of the scriptures.   

In the Fourth Fatal Mistake in the article on the Key of Knowledge ( http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#fourth ) the Church Father Origen makes reference to Paul's portrayal of the scriptures as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14) when read literally, and writes with respect to using the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge:
“But all the narrative portion, relating either to the marriages, or to the begetting of the children, or to battles of different kinds, or to any other histories whatever, what else can they be supposed to be, save the forms and figures of hidden and sacred things? As men, however, make little effort to exercise their intellect, or imagine that they possess knowledge before they really learn, the consequence is that they never begin to have knowledge"
What does this mean?   What it means is that "...all the narrative portion [of the scriptures], relating either to the marriages, or to the begetting of the children, or to battles of different kinds, or to any other histories whatever", do not at all pertain to historical accounts of man's more distant past -- but rather, to the Forces and Laws that are presently working within man's own mind and being.   Why?   How could Origen who was called the prince of Christian learning second only to the Apostles themselves, state that the historical interpretation of the scriptures is "worthless"?  And that what is presented in the written text as marriages, the begetting of children, and the many various wars and battles are not at all historical -- but rather, an allegorical portrayal of the Forces and Laws working within one's own mind and being?
What Origen states is true -- and when you read of a marriage or the begetting of children or any other portrayal of what appears to be history, is in reality presenting the Realities, Laws and Forces of your own Mind.   And this includes Jesus, the Virgin Birth, the twelve disciples and even the crucifixion.   Unless you bring what is allegorical portrayed in the scriptures about within your own mind and being, then you will fail to bring about the necessary subsequent stages of birth that will permit you to enter Into the Promise of Life. If you read the scriptures as historical narratives in the manner of the Jews, then you will have thrown away the Key of Knowledge.

Has Donald Trump Become A Savior?

If a man saves millions of people from inherent sin that will cast them into extreme suffering in what Jesus called the "outer darkness" of Mind and Being (see http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org ) -- i.e., “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV) -- then he can rightly be portrayed as their savior.  With respect to the Holocaust of the UnBorn, The Didache (a.k.a. The Teaching of the Apostles), which is one of the oldest Christian documents, at Section 2:2 states: "...thou shalt not murder a child by abortion nor kill them when born..." -- and at 5:2 it states: "The Way of Death is filled with people who are...murderers of children and abortionists of God's creatures."    It has been conveyed to me from On High that abortion is murder -- and even those who support abortion, are therefore acting in concert with murderers.   

Those who understand the Laws That Control Our Lives http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#TheLawsThatControlOurLives , will perceive that those who voted for Barack Obama and who promote abortion, will themselves inherit the evil, suffering and murder that they perpetuated upon the souls that have been aborted.  When Vice Pres. Mike Pence spoke at the pro-life rally, he openly declared the opposition of the Executive Office of the President against the holocaust that has been perpetuated upon the unborn -- and if this speech of Vice Pres. Pence is followed up by a denial of funding in support of abortion, then the people who voted for Donald Trump will be freed from the sin that will engulf those who support the murder of the unborn.  Those who sowed the murder of the unborn, will suffer a similar fate in the future.   What is important is for Donald Trump to defund the infanticide of the unborn, so that those Americans who reject the murder of the fetus in its mother's womb, are not financially supporting this grave sin.    

I recently watched an interview with the Rev. William Owens who is  the head of the Coalition Of African-American Pastors (see http://caapusa.org/ ) wherein he stated that he was recently shown the documentation to prove that Pres. Lyndon Johnson started the War on Poverty so as to undermine the black family so they would basically vote Democrat -- i.e., make black women dependent upon the government and drive black men out of the family home.   And in such a scenario, abortion became a necessary ingredient to the spiritually disenfranchised equation.  In view of the fact that studies have proven that poverty and racial inequality is fueled by the breakup of the black family (see Marriage: America's Greatest Weapon Against Child Poverty,  the fact that it is demonstrated that those who live in poverty are in fact poor, because under the Secular Progressive domain, they have abandoned biblical morality and marriage. Thus, their poverty and the conditions under which they live, are the direct result of their own choices and actions.  And thus, not only those who abort their children are grave sinners, but so too are those who support the political culture of the Secular Progressives who have destroyed the black family, and promote abortion as a type of birth control.

Yet, Paul correctly states:"But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner — not even to eat with such a person" (1 Cor 5:11 NKJV) -- and the Gospels present the cause of their poverty and turmoil in the words of Jesus: "...sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV).

What Paul is stating is that it is of course a sin to support the immorality and sinfulness of those who choose to dwell in sin. If Christians are commanded by Paul to have no part in the sin of those who have abandoned biblical morality -- to the degree that a Christian should "...not even to eat with such a person" -- and Jesus warns the person who he healed to cease from sin, lest a worse thing such as even greater poverty come upon them -- then when Christians use their money and resources to indiscriminately support and promote lives of sin, then they have in fact cast themselves in the role of the servant who squandered away his God-Given Talents on the things of this world.

The solution to the dilemma is found in the words of Benjamin Franklin who correctly stated: "I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer."

The poor and disenfranchised in this country is the direct result of the failed Secular Progressive agenda they have embraced. Author, and one time welfare mom Star Parker, portrays the poor as the victims of Uncle Sam's Plantation. God-fearing people are in no manner obligated to support the lifestyle of those who abandon morality and biblical standards. While it is good to provide food and clothing to those in need, to take away from those who are living by spiritual standards, to give to those who have abandoned spiritual standards, is in and of itself sin.  Further, financial support and pay for abortion on demand, is one of the greatest evils of our hedonist godless culture.

Has Mankind Been Stricken With Spiritual Amnesia?


Spiritual-Amnesia: (an excerpt from http://AnInconvenientTruth.org )
In the Gospels, Jesus presents Universal Truths that are Relevant and True with respect to all of mankind -- regardless of their beliefs or associations.  In the parables, all of mankind is portrayed in the parable of the Prodigal Son (see Parable).   And the fact that the vast majority of people fail to remember when they dwelt in the Kingdom prior to journeying out into this, the Far Country, is because they presently dwell in what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being ( http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org ).   They therefore fail to remember their more distant past because they have been stricken with spiritual-amnesia, and presently dwell in a suppressed mental and spiritual condition that can only be overcome when they come to TheCall (see http://TheCall.Nazirene.org ) -- put on the required "wedding garment" -- and as portrayed in the parable of the prodigal son, "come to their senses" and begin the Journey in TheWay that will restore them to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.   And this fact is important because this reality of the journey of the prodigal son, goes to the very core of the purpose and objectives of the scriptures -- which is to provide the sincere seekers the means to reverse the spiritual-amnesia, and become restored to their Source in the Kingdom.   The authors of the scriptures were themselves highly evolved spiritual men who created using the allegorical garb of history, portrayals of man's Divine Pattern of Mind -- presenting to those who had sufficiently begun the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-evolution, the Laws and Forces of Consciousness -- including an understanding of The Natural Laws Of Creation http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#TheLawsOfCreation that evolves each Soul from the Alpha of Ignorance to the Omega of Enlightened Light -- as well as The Laws That Control Every Aspect Of Our Lives http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#TheLawsThatControlOurLives throughout the stages of development in this realm that can be portrayed as God's School House for his divine offspring.  The scriptures reveale to the seeker who has the "eyes to see", the absolute need to achieve the subsequent stages of birth -- and the reality that this realm that is portrayed as the Far Country, is very much a Mental Womb http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#MentalWomb that is designed to bring about the next stage of birth that enables man to become At-One with his Higher Soul-Self (see http://SoulSelf.org ).  And beyond this, the necessary Spiritual-Birth that enables the Soul to become At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God in the manner that our elder brother Jesus did -- i.e., as witnessed by those who Jesus personally taught and walked with daily who affirmed that the original Gospels were correct prior to be corrupted by the Church (see http://TheTenWords.com ) that Jesus was "...was justified by fulfilling the Law. He was the Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely. Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ, for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity" (see Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34).   When the Ebionite Nazirenes  make reference to the Law, this very much includes the Laws of Creation as portrayed in the words "...the designs/laws found throughout Nature and all of Creation".    That the historical man Jesus was a pattern for all of mankind because he was the first prodigal son to be restored to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination because of his success in overcoming the Laws within his own mind and being, is demonstrated in the words: "He was the Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely. Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ..."   And this confirms this statement with respect to the true potential of all of mankind that Jesus taught, as demonstrated in the words of the pre-Nicene Church Father Hippolytus when he wrote that they believed that when any of the prodigal sons "...thus fulfill the law, they are able to become Christs" (Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34 - see http://Ebionite.com ).   And this is why Jesus taught that he was our brother -- i.e., "Go instead to my brothers and tell them, 'I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God'" (John 20:17 NIV). 
That the historical Jesus was a true holy man who became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ by fulfilling the Royal Law within himself, is attested to at Acts 2:22 where Jesus is portrayed as "a man, attested to you by God" -- and this was demonstrated by God performing "mighty works and wonders and signs that God did through him in your midst".   If Jesus was himself God incarnate as believed by the later Romans, then these words portraying Jesus as a man approved by God through the works and wonders that God did through him, never would have been presented in this manner.   The heathen and pagan mind of the mainstream of Gentiles always had great difficulty in understanding the difference between the man Jesus, the Indwelling Logos/Son of God which is representative of the Mind of God (see The Logos), and the One Teacher which Jesus commanded all who would call themselves his disciples and followers, were to seek out and learn from (see The True Prophet).   And it was the living of the necessary Consecrated Life that Jesus ordained, and the seeking of the Kingdom within, that enabled the historical Jesus to become the Messiah, and At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God.   And this is especially demonstrated in the words of Edward Gibbon with respect to the original position of the Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus that he was in “...supernatural union of a man and God... In their eyes, Jesus of Nazareth was a mere mortal, the legitimate son of Joseph and Mary: but he was the best and wisest of the human race, selected as the worthy instrument to restore upon earth the worship of the true and supreme Deity. When he was baptized in the Jordan, the Christ, the first of the aeons, the Son of God himself, descended on Jesus in the form of a dove, to inhabit his mind, and direct his actions during the allotted period of his ministry” (Gibbon; The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, V.4, P.366).  The historical and spiritual factualness of these words can be proven when one understands the original words that were spoken to the man Jesus at his baptism in the Jordan River -- when the Voice of God stated: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee" -- which means that the historical man Jesus was a man who became the Messiah/Christ when he overcame the Laws and became Anointed by God.    That the later Church of Rome which existed as a puppet under the pagan sun worshipping Emperor Constantine, censored and changed the very words of God spoken to mankind, is the primary reason why the Christian world remains shackled to the abyss of spiritual ignorance to this very day.  
The authors of the scriptures were spiritual men -- and concealed within the allegorical body of the written text their sacred writings possessed the knowledge that enables the lost prodigal sons and daughters to escape the "outer darkness" of the Far Country -- overcome the affliction of spiritual-amnesia that robs and deprives the offspring of God the memory of when they dwelt in the Kingdom -- as well as the memory of all the lives their soul has lived in their individual journeys from the Alpha to the Omega.  That the lost prodigal sons and daughters have been stricken with spiritual-amnesia, and fail to remember their more distant past while dwelling in this, the "outer darkness" of the Far Country, is one of the primary objectives of the scriptures.   That organic natural man fails to remember when he dwelt in the Kingdom, as well as all the lifetimes man's Soul has lived in the Journey of the Soul, is due to the dogmatic and carnal shackles that the Citizen of the Far Country uses to enslave the prodigal sons and daughters to lives of hardship and suffering -- primarily due to their own ignorance of self and their divine origin.   And this self-ignorance is attested to by Jesus in the Gospel of Thomas in the words: "(3) Jesus said ...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty" (see http://GospelOfThomas.Nazirene.org ).     
When Paul portrayed the baptized and committed Christians who he personally taught as incapable of comprehending man's higher soul and spiritual reality because they were of a "natural" and "animal-soul" level of consciousness (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature ) -- he confirmed the important reason why the Gospels are parables within the framework of a larger body of parables: "And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it. But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples" (Mark 4:33-34 NKJV -- see below: In The House - Taught In Parables - The Key Of Knowledge).   What is a parable within a larger parable framework?  A parable portrays essential higher truths at a variable level of understanding so they can be understood at the level of the person reading or hearing the parable -- and as the level of the reader or hearer begins to evolve, greater truths are perceived and understood.   A parable within a parable presents universal parabolic truths within short presentations that must be understood in order to begin to comprehend the higher truths of the parabolic whole.  
This parabolic framework is necessary, because mankind who is at an "animal-soul" level of consciousness is incapable of comprehending man's higher soul and spiritual reality.  And because of the Laws of Creation, the Spiritual Visionary and Mystic understands that they cannot do the impossible -- what neither Jesus, Paul or any of the biblical authors were capable of doing -- which is to convey the higher reality of the Soul and the Kingdom, to mankind in his "natural" and/or "animal-soul" level of being.   In the same way that an infant cannot do and accomplish what an adult can, neither can man in his organic condition of mind comprehend what can only be understood by those who have embraced the process of evolving the mind into a condition of highly developed and refined spiritual maturity.  And when rightly understood, this world which is portrayed as the Far Country in the parable of the prodigal son, is a three-dimensional shadow-world (see OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org ) to those who in the manner of the example of those who had yet to bring about the transformation of the physical body and mind, refuse to make the change within themselves necessary to prove the Truth by travailing in TheWay.  The Law is that only those who are themselves spiritual, can receive the higher spiritual knowledge.   The mystic and spiritual visionary who must be understood as spiritual scientists and seekers of Ultimate Truth, have long attempted to explain to "natural" organic man that in order to see and comprehend the higher reality that the mystic perceives, the seeker must themselves bring about the same developmental changes within their body and mind.  At the foregoing link I explain that this realm is a three-dimensional image of a higher twelve-dimensional reality -- which is why it is portrayed by mystics as a shadow-world of illusions.  And BY DESIGN, the only means that you or any other of the lost prodigal sons have to prove the truth, is to bring about the necessary changes within yourself to prevail over the human limitations which Paul portrays as "natural" and of an "animal-soul" level of being (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature ).   In the same way that you can't enroll an infant in a university, if you desire to Know the Truth, then you must make the necessary changes and transformation within your own mind and being that permits you to Know the Truth -- and  like the infant who can't comprehend at a university level, this is BY DIVINE DESIGN.  In the parable of the Sower And The Seed, this necessary environment of purified and refined body and mind is portrayed as the "good ground".    And in the same way that when man provides the proper purified and refined foundational environment within one's own body and mind, each person possesses the innate ability to Know the Truth of all Truths -- and the only requirement is for them to begin to live the Truth that has been revealed to them in word, thought, desire and deed.   In the below I will demonstrate the reality of the statement in the Wycliffe Bible Commentary that only the sincere disciple could be: “...instructed in the esoteric teaching... which was not revealed to outsiders… The mystery of the kingdom in its ultimate development is the full-orbed message of the Gospel (Rom 16:25-26). The purpose of parables was to instruct the initiates without revealing the items of instruction to the ones who were without. This is in keeping with the Biblical principle that spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”. And the fact that you may be an acknowledged genus from the perspective of man's modern academia, means absolutely nothing with respect to your ability to comprehend the true spiritual meaning of the scriptures.   And the problem is not only one of comprehension, but also the fact that the scriptures are composed and written in a spiritual language that the seeker or student of the scriptures can only learn from inner spiritual Sources that are largely incomprehensible from the perspective of modern academia.

Cluelessness At The Huffington Post

If St. Augustine was looking through a portal into the future when he wrote that: “He is a slave to a sign who uses or worships a significant thing without knowing what it signifies..", it would be noted that he was making reference to the article in the Huffington Post by Suzanne DeWitt Hall entitled: Jesus: The First Transgender Man (see http://www.huffingtonpost.com/…/jesus-the-first-transgend_b… ). But then again, so too can it be said that the Church Father Origen was making reference to this article when he posed the question: "What man is found such an idiot..." not to seek out the deeper spiritual meaning, concluding that: "I believe that every man must hold these things for images, under which the hidden sense lies concealed”. To suggest that Suzanne DeWitt Hall is clueless as to the spiritual meaning of the allegorical symbols she denigrates, is perhaps eclipsed only by the Huffington Post's willingness to publish such ignorant trash.
When Suzanne DeWitt Hall passes over to the Hereafter and takes account of her life -- discovering that she has made little progress towards fulfilling the objectives of the life she was living -- she will wish at that point that she possessed a knowing understanding of these allegorical symbols that are important aspects of the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge ( http://KeyOfKnowledge.org ) -- only then will it become apparent to her just how clueless she was. And she will begin to understand the statement in the Gospel of Thomas: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty". Without knowing the important meaning of these symbols she denigrates, it remains impossible to fulfill the adage to Know Thyself.
If the scriptures are properly interpreted and understood within the environment of one's own Cosmology of Mind and Being, they must be turned within one's own mind in search of self-knowledge and our true relationship to our un-manifest Soul-Self ( http://SoulSelf.org ), and our Soul's relationship to Creator-God. And in her failure to understand what is being conveyed in these universal symbols of evolved and higher consciousness, Suzanne DeWitt Hall will find herself confronted by her own abject ignorance of self and intellectual poverty that she promotes in her writings.
