What Pope Benedict XVI is in opposition to, is what he calls the “Dictatorship of Relativism”. What does this mean? That absolute truth does not exist or cannot be known, and all opinions are to be given equal weight and consideration -- i.e., one of the foundational principles of the New Age and the Secular Progressives that has destroyed the very fabrics of our modern culture. And while Pope Benedict is not wrong, there is another reality that is simply beyond his doctrinal understanding. At the organic level of this world, Absolute Truth cannot exist -- that is, without transformation of the mind of the individual. So, while Pope Benedict is correct in his assertion that the confusion of relativism which places all (carnal) opinions on equal ground and footing is in many instances a denial of Absolute Truth, it remains a fact that the Church doctrines are themselves one of the greatest forces in opposition to Absolute Truth. Why? Because they are faith-based -- and they worship a symbol of mind, rather than teach TheWay how to embrace and become what that symbol means. St. Augustine himself correctly conveyed the dilemma of the Church when he wrote: “What the apostle says pertains to this problem: 'For the letter killeth, but the spirit quickeneth', that is, when that which is said figuratively is taken as though it were literal, it is understood carnally. Nor can anything more appropriately be called the death of the soul than that condition in which the thing which distinguishes us from beasts, which is the understanding, is subjected to the flesh in the pursuit of the letter. He who follows the letter takes figurative expressions as though they were literal and does not refer the things signified to anything else” (De Doctrina Christiana).
From a scriptural perspective, Yeshua is himself a symbol -- a symbol of mind and being that opens the door to the Kingdom -- and it is the reality of what this symbol portrays, that must be brought about in the life and mind of the individual. But because the Church reads the letter, and worships the symbol -- failing to not only understand what the symbol signifies, but also failing to teach how to become what that symbol signifies -- the truth that remains after their doctrines and rituals can "...appropriately be called the death of the soul" -- i.e., "...that condition in which the thing which distinguishes us from beasts, which is the understanding, is subjected to the flesh in the pursuit of the letter. He who follows the letter takes figurative expressions as though they were literal and does not refer the things signified to anything else”
By design when the Church was threefold (see The Secret Doctrine), the Church itself was a genuine path to the unfoldment of Absolute Truth, because it acted as a shepherd which fed and nourished the seeker in accord with their needs. Yet, after the process of secularization and institutionalization that took place in the fourth century, the soul and the spirit of the Church was put to death -- leaving a doctrinal corpse in it's wake. Over the course of the first three centuries, the body of (carnal) believers were given little more than the symbolism of the letter of the written word -- which the Church Father Origen correctly portrayed as being “preached in the Churches… for the" [edification of the] "...simpleminded and for the ears of the common crowd who are led on to live better lives by their belief”. In throwing away the Key of Knowledge (see http://KeyOfKnowledge.org ), the people no longer knew how to apply these symbols to manifest the Kingdom and the End Times within their own selves. While there is much pomp and smoke and mirror type of ritual, not only has the knowledge of how to apply the symbols become lost -- but the people have become alienated from the very reality the symbols are designed to bring about and manifest within the body and mind of the seeker.
Without genuine spiritual shepherds who can guide the people in TheWay -- shepherds who can assist the seeker through the transitional phases of the necessary spiritual transformation that opens the inner narrow gate (see http://GateOfEden.com ) to the enlightening power of Absolute Truth and the Light of the soul -- mankind is left with the absolute confusion and chaos that Pope Benedict portrays as the Dictatorship of Relativism. And in many respects, Pope Benedict is the poor soul who has been left holding the bag, so to speak. As explained in my Letter to President Bush (see http://brotherofyeshua.com/lettertobush.htm ), it was Pope John Paul who had the karma of his own and his Church's past returning back upon him (see http://EpistleOfLight.com ) -- which means that Pope Benedict has been left attempting to salvage the results of an opportunity lost. Moreover, Pope Benedict himself inherited that karma of his own Church, which brought about the Dictatorship of Relativism which he now opposes. Mass confusion and chaos exists at present, because the prodigal sons and daughters no longer have shepherds which can guide them in TheWay -- and they continue to dwell in the abyss of ignorance which can "...appropriately be called the death of the soul." And thus, all that remains is the elementary doctrines correctly portrayed as being “preached in the Churches… for the" [edification of the] "...simpleminded and for the ears of the common crowd who are led on to live better lives by their belief”. And because the non-Catholic Churches have failed in their own effort to break the doctrinal shackles of Pagan Rome and restore the Spiritual Essence of the Gospel, in many respect they have themselves become little more than the Churches of the "outer darkness" (see http://DivineStrategery.com#OuterDarkness ).
I can't help them. Because they have embraced the doctrinal restrictions of a circus prostitute (see http://Ebionite.com/reincarnation.htm ), they therefore lack the knowledge of the journey of the soul -- and in not understanding the higher reality of the soul -- all their seeking is in vain -- i.e., "Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying: 'These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men' " (Matt 15:7-9 NKJ). And what Pope Benedict perceives as the Dictatorship of Relativism, is the chickens coming home to roost in the reality of the karma of when his own Church murdered the Ebionites and Spiritual Christians (see http://Ebionite.com/prologue.htm ). And since Pope John Paul threw away the opportunity that would not only restore the Truth and TheWay, but would have initiated World Peace, Pope Benedict is attempting to stop a run away train wreck that is barreling down hill to the fate which awaits it in the washed out bridge that his own Church long ago burned and destroyed. In many respects, Pope Benedict is a kindred soul to President Nixon -- i.e., Nixon didn't know about, or orchestrate the Watergate break in -- but because of the cover up which attempted to spin and conceal the facts, like Nixon, Pope Benedict has been left holding the bag. And because from a doctrinal perspective, the church is a runaway train, it is the Laws, rather than Pope Benedict, that is now in control.
In order to overcome that condition which Augustine portrays as the death of the soul, Benedict would have to tell the people that the Ebionites who were condemned as heretics, were correct in their assertion that Yeshua/Jesus was a man who fulfilled the Law, and became the Messiah at what is allegorically portrayed as his baptism (see http://TheTenWords.com ) -- and the Son of God at the Final Birth which is allegorically portrayed in the symbols of the Crucifixion. Pope Benedict would have to acknowledge to the world that the doctrine of the Trinity as understood today, was a doctrine of Pagan origin that was incorporated into the teachings of Yeshua/Jesus and the scriptures which were corrupted to support the very pagan doctrines of the Church (see http://BibleCorruption.com ). And if the question is posed as to why this restoral is necessary in order to correct the very serious doctrinal problem in the modern Church, this problem is explored in the Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown Commentary where it is written: “[Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.] Augustine, with some moderns, apply this to Christ's external generations from the Father. `The expression (says Alexander) 'I have begotten thee' means, I am thy Father: 'Today' refers to the date of the decree itself: but this, as a divine act, was eternal, and so must be the Sonship it affirms. This, however, is a forced way of interpreting the words, and not at all consistent with the context, which clearly connects the Sonship with the resurrection of Christ. Does the apostle, then; mean to say that Christ became God's Son -- for the first time and in the only sense in which He was the Son of God -- by His resurrection from the dead? That cannot be; for, besides that it would contradict the whole, strain of the New Testament regarding Christ's relation to the Father” (Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown Commentary).
Allegorically, the lost prodigal sons are the dead -- and the prevailing death that Yeshua/Jesus was raised up out of. Which means that his teachings can only be applicable, to those who imitate Christ, and bring about the same results within themselves, that their elder brother Yeshua/Jesus accomplished within himself. And the doctrinal problem is seen in the fact that that what the Apostle states, means exactly what is says -- Jesus became the Son of God -- initially, by the Anointing (Christ) of the Holy Spirit at his baptism; and permanently, with his resurrection. And while this realty "...cannot be", from the pagan doctrinal perspective of the Church which has since the fourth century totally "...contradicted the whole, strain of the New Testament regarding Christ's relation to the Father” -- and has plunged the world into the abyss of confusion and chaos that has brought about the Dictatorship of Relativism. And since the Church is simply unwilling to correct this fatal doctrinal foundational flaw, no real spiritual progress can be achieved until after the coming upheaval and destruction of the Synagogue of Satan -- a reality that the Laws are bringing about as the train wreck continues to draw ever nearer to the bridge that it previously burnt and destroyed.
