Evil vs Evil - The Clash Of Ideologies
In our present clash of ideologies, there are no clear right and wrong sides -- and because of the pervading ignorance of the Laws, what we have is wrong opposing wrong. The (modern) problems all began when Jimmy Carter pressured the Shah of Iran to act more kindly towards the extremists -- and these extremists are striving to talk over all of Islam. To them, peace with someone who does not think like them, is evil. And the mandate to murder and kill has been written right into the Qur'an: "Slay them wherever you find them...Idolatry is worse than carnage...Fight against them until idolatry is no more and God's religion reigns supreme." (Surah 2:190-) "Fighting is obligatory for you, much as you dislike it." (Surah 2:216) "Seek out your enemies relentlessly." (Surah 4:103-) "...make war on the leaders of unbelief...Make war on them: God will chastise them at your hands and humble them. He will grant you victory over them..." (Surah 9:12-) "It is He who has sent forth His apostle with guidance and the true Faith [Islam] to make it triumphant over all religions, however much the idolaters [non-Muslims] may dislike it." (Surah 9:31-) "If you do not fight, He will punish you sternly, and replace you by other men." (Surah 9:37-).
Those in the world who Stalin labeled useful idiots, have forced the world to sat back for far too long and let radical Islam become a raging fire that in an age of nuclear and biological weapons, the insanity of the black plague could very well look like child's play. But few men of higher vision exist -- and even fewer yet are able to even begin to recognize that the Laws which control all events and realities of this world, often use evil against evil, in order to bring about necessary change. And while the key of peace has been in the hands of the Christians, they have refused to use the Knowledge that has been bestowed upon them to put their own House in order and begin the process of becoming the Light and Healers to the rest of the world (see http://ebionite.com/EbioniteDenial.htm ). So while on one hand I recognize the evil of radical Islam, I must also recognize that because man has refused to make change, that Islam is the cure for the greater disease of the world today. And here is where the whole mess gets paradoxical and insane -- i.e., Jesus warned: "Woe to the world because of offenses! For offenses must come, but woe to that man by whom the offense comes!" (Matt 18:7 NKJ). While the Laws bring about the distress, those who are carnal and become instruments of wrath used by the Laws, are judged by the very Laws that test and use them. So for people of vision who truly seek to Know and Understand, reality is very much a Catch22 -- i.e., the Laws cause one evil to consume another evil. In a more clear portrayal the above verse in the Gospel of the Nazirenes ( http://GospelOfTheNazirenes.org ) reads: "Distress comes to the world because of transgressions of the law! Of necessity transgressions occur, but woe to the man who commits these transgression." Notice the words of necessity -- i.e., the Laws -- but while the Laws brought these atrocities about, that does not justify the transgressions committed. So in decadent western society we have one form of transgressions of the Law, and the Law itself raises up a different variety of evil in the form of radical Islam in order to oppose it. Yet, if the people were led by wise visionaries, there is always a higher spiritual solution that could have alleviated the discord -- but since the world doesn't listen to the witness of wise men and visionaries, the Laws bring about those conditions where forces of lawlessness oppose other lawlessness -- which makes everybody wrong.An interesting statement on this subject is found in the Nazirene Gospel in the words: "Woe is the time when the spirit of the world enters into the church, and my doctrines and precepts are made void through the corruptions of men and of women. Woe is the world when the light is hidden. Woe is the world when these things shall be." Different varieties of the corrupting spirits of this world have each entered into Judaism, Christianity and Islam -- and while each have in their own way made truth void through their corruptions -- each is on a collusion course with the other. As an expression of Divine Strategery ( http://DivineStrategery.com ), everybody is wrong. Even the New Age falls prey because of their judgments that lack any understanding. In fact, the New Age is just as much a part of the equation as the rest. Since the flaw is the corruptions -- and the only solution is spiritual -- by not actively engaging the solution in every aspect of their lives through their complacency non-discernment, they have made themselves part of the problem. While it is nice to say, "lets give peace a chance", or "all you need is love", the most important aspect of the equation is an absolute allegiance to Truth and the willingness to live and manifest the Truth in word, thought, desire and deed. As we are moving into a new age, greater knowledge and manifest spirituality will be required. Yet, knowledge can only come with discernment -- with greater understanding of all things -- and the most important, the knowledge of one's own self. And this requires people to begin to think paradoxically. And since thought cannot even exist outside the domain of paradoxical opposites, few people even know what it is like to think, and most merely react to stimulation and conditions in the manner of lab rats. Reaching the reality of our own soul-self (see http://ebionite.com/reincarnation.htm#birth ) is very difficult, because achieving balance over the magnitude of diversities of mind and being within self is very difficult. The Key is in understanding the twelve spheres of mind that are portrayed in both the pattern of the Tree of Life, as well as in the portrayal of mind in the scriptures. Of the twelve disciples in the Nazirene Gospel Jesus states: "One is your master, all you are brothers, and one is not greater than another in the place which I have given to you; for you have one master, even Christ, who is over you and with you and in you, and there is no inequality among my twelve, or their fellows. All are equally near to me. Don't strive therefore for the first place, for you are all first, because you are the foundation stones and pillars of the church, built on the truth which is in me and in you. And you will establish the truth, and the law, as it will be given to you." Since there is duality in each of the twelve, this duality can only be overcome through the duality of the opposite spheres -- i.e., like men and women, the strengths of one, are the weaknesses of the other, and vice versa -- and in their union, something higher emerges. The problem is that in order for the higher to exist, it must be built upon the paradoxical opposites -- and within each of the paradoxical opposites, the same pattern holographically exists. from bottom to top. Yet, because of the gross spiritual ignorance of the world today, this necessary evolved harmony cannot exist. Western nations use the power of government in conjunction with corrupted religions to inhibit the balance. Islam uses corrupted religion to inhibit the balance. Thus, we have disease confronting disease. And even those who possess the insight to understand the spiritual problem, not only refuse to live the necessary Life, but themselves merely add a different variety of disease into the mix. There is a difference between man's attempt to eradicate and homogenize differences, and bringing opposites into abiding harmony. The west attempts to mind-program everyone through the abuse of secular power -- radical Islam accomplishes the same thing through violence. In a place such as Harvard, one is not even able to suggest that there might be important differences in the mind and thinking of men and women (see http://ebionite.com/harvard.htm ) -- and in not understanding the paradoxical differences, mankind remains shackled in error and confusion. And what they fail to even begin to comprehend, is the fact that without these differences and paradoxical opposites among not only the sexes, but of the greater population, the reality of higher mind remains unachievable. The God-Given Rights of man as enumerated in the US Constitution were supposed to bring this necessary environment where opposites can not only exist, but evolve without coercion and control -- but this too has met with corruption and failure. While the UnSpiritual Right would ignorantly put an end to these God-Given Rights if they could, it is the UnLiberal Left that is bringing the destruction about. But since the liberal Left infuriates radical Islam even more than the conservative Right, what we have is the clash of ideologies that are each corrupted and forcing the world into both imbalance and conflict. Thus, because mankind rejects Wisdom and Understanding, the Higher Laws are bringing about a massive conflict -- raising up evil against evil -- so that a healing can eventually prevail.
