Why is there evil in the world? While the government and people of Sweden will not like the answer to this proverbial question that mankind asks, their unbelief and the failed tests of life does not in any manner negate the fate of inheriting the fruit of their own actions. Marxists, Secular Progressives, Socialists and Communists -- all of whom make up the Left Wing and majority of Atheists -- all proclaim their disbelief in God, because they reason that God would not permit the evil in this world to continue. Yet, the folly of the Left Wing is seen in the fact that God does not want man in his organic state of mind to know the truth -- and this is outlined at Divine Strategery. And, as with the word strategery itself, all of Creation has been designed to remain ignorant of the objectives of God. In the recent Blog article entitled: If You Bear His Name, But Not Possess His Power, the reality is explored that "...to ordinary mortals. A hidden or secret thing, not obvious to the understanding" -- and, "...spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”.

When Jesus said of his disciples: “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that, they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding” (Mark 4:11-12 NIV) -- that word translated secret, is the same word translated mystery, and makes reference to an esoteric knowledge that is beyond man's organic comprehension. Yet, in a state of spiritual denial, the the modern Church attempts to ignore the implications of what these words convey. In explanation of the above words of Jesus, the Wycliffe Commentary writes that: “…the initiate was instructed in the esoteric teaching of the cult, 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...”
If, as openly stated above, it is true that Jesus taught initiates differently than the multitude of people who he portrayed as being "...outside", then a true seeker must conclude that every article of faith promoted by the Church today, would have to be totally re-evaluated. Thus the question: What was Jesus stating with respect to why he spoke in parables? To ignore this question, is to reject the whole foundational objective and revelation of the Bible. Jesus was stating that only those who become separate from the thinking and ways of this world, and became true disciples of Messiah/Christ, are able to perceive and understand the secrets of the Kingdom of God -- and in the Greek language, this sacred Knowledge is called Gnosis. And by the very meaning of the word that is being presented that cannot be revealed "...to ordinary mortals. A hidden or secret thing, not obvious to the understanding" -- it is of the utmost importance to recognize that what is being conveyed is the fact that "...spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”. Why? Because man in his organic or "natural" condition of mind, has yet to develop the facilities of mind necessary to receive and comprehend this higher spiritual knowledge that the biblical authors are making reference to.
When it is recognized that this very warning was stated by Paul to the baptized and totally committed believers at Corinth -- i.e., “I always thank God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. For in him you have been enriched in every way -- in all your speaking and in all your knowledge -- because our testimony about Christ was confirmed in you. Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed” (1 Cor 1:4-7 NIV) -- the modern reader who does not pause and reflect on what this means -- personally -- to them, remains a blind man who is beyond the reach of the Gospel message. What is Paul stating to the believers at Corinth? That even though Paul himself had instructed them in the "testimony" of Christ -- and that they had received the entire revelation of the Good News of the Gospel -- to the degree that they were not "...lacking any spiritual gift" -- they had yet to evolve and mature those facilities of mind that would enable them to perceive, discern and comprehend the higher reality of the soul and what Paul portrayed as the Mystery of the Gospel. And this is especially demonstrated in the second chapter of the very same Epistle where Paul warns these believers who have been given all primary historical knowledge and testimony of Christ: “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ). And just as important is thee fact that Paul stated that when they complete the process of transformation and achieve this higher level of spiritual maturity, that the Christ will come to them and teach them -- i.e., "...as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed”. And thus, this is the meaning of the allegorical End Times when the Kingdom (within) comes upon the earth (the body) of the disciple/seeker. This Spiritual Knowledge that can only be revealed by the Lord, is called Gnosis -- i.e., spiritually experienced and acquired knowledge that can only be imparted to those who have so prepared themselves that they are as virgins who have filled their lamps with the oil of purification necessary to receive the Lord.
The early Christian Valentinius quoted Paul's Epistle to the Ephesians when he made reference to Gnosis Kardias -- or, the enlightened eyes of the heart. "I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints" (Eph 1:18). And that Paul wanted very much to speak about the Mystery of the Gospel to the Ephesians, but could not, is the reason he portrayed himself as an ambassador in bonds: "And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak" (see Eph 6:19-20). And how did a seeker/disciple obtain these enlightened eyes of the heart? Very briefly, by fulfilling the role of a virgin who awaits the Lord with the oil of purification -- and by becoming the "good ground" that permits the necessary expansion of the facilities of mind to be brought about, which enables the seeker/disciple to be taught by the Indwelling Logos/Son of God/True Prophet. And in the same way that in the parable of the ten virgins it was said to those who had failed to prepair themselves with the oil of purification that "Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you" -- even though they believed and had called upon the Lord and was awaiting his coming, this reality of the believer who has failed to prepare himself is futher explored in the early Christian scripture known as the Shepherd of Hermas.
In the introduction of the early Christian writing known as the Shepard of Hermas, it is written: “The Pastor of Hermas was one of the most popular books, if not the most popular book, in the Christian Church during the second, third, and fourth centuries... In ancient times two opinions prevailed in regard to the authorship. The most widely spread was, that the Pastor of Hermas was the production of the Hermas mentioned in the Epistle to the Romans. Origen states this opinion distinctly, and it is repeated by Eusebius and Jerome”. If, then, it is true that the Pastor of Hermas was one of the most important scriptural authorities over the first four centuries, then we can use it in our endeavor to better understand the essence of early Christian thought. What the Shepherd of Hermas has to say is very important to us today, because it represents the scriptural tradition that was taught directly to the faithful flock by the Apostles of Christ. Thus, on the nature of scripture, in the Shepherd we find: “I am senseless, sir, say I, and do not understand these parables. For how she can crush out, and on the other hand save, I do not perceive. Listen, says he. Those who have never searched for the truth, nor investigated the nature of the Divinity, but have simply believed, when they devote themselves to and become mixed up with business, and wealth, and heathen friendships, and many other actions of this world, do not perceive the parables of Divinity; for their minds are darkened by these actions, and they are corrupted and become dried up. Even as beautiful vines, when they are neglected, are withered up by thorns and divers plants, so men who have believed, and have afterwards fallen away into many of those actions above mentioned, go astray in their minds, and lose all understanding in regard to righteousness; for if they hear of righteousness, their minds are occupied with their business, and they give no heed at all. Those, on the other hand, who have the fear of God, and search after Godhead and truth, and have their hearts turned to the Lord, quickly perceive and understand what is said to them, because they have the fear of the Lord in them. For where the Lord dwells, there is much understanding. Cleave, then, to the Lord, and you will understand and perceive all things”.
The message that is very clear from this early Christian writing is that it is impossible to mature spiritually, while attempting to divide oneself between the two worlds. In our present day culture we are living proof as to the validity of the wisdom that is portrayed in this writing -- i.e., one cannot perceive the true meaning of the parables and the inner significance of the historical narrative of the scriptures, while one devotes their lives to their “business, and wealth, and heathen friendships, and many other actions of this world” -- which would include the whole array of addictions provided by all the many leisure’s and entertainments that captivate and control our every-day lives. Further, do we truly do unto others as we would want others to do unto us -- i.e., do we send our children (the souls who were placed in our care) off to government secularized schools to become imbued with the thinking, mindset and lifestyle of the heathen culture in which we presently live?
In the Shepherd of Hermas a reference is made to a tower, of which it is written: “And the tower, I asked, what does it mean? This tower, he replied, is the Church. And these virgins, who are they? They are Holy Spirits, and men cannot otherwise be found in the kingdom of God unless these have put their clothing upon them: for if you receive the name only, and do not receive from them the clothing, they are of no advantage to you. For these virgins are the powers of the Son of God. If you bear His name but possess not His power, it will be in vain that you bear His name”. In understanding what is written, it is most important for us to be aware of the continual message found in the words: “If you bear His name but possess not His power, it will be in vain that you bear His name”. Thus, if you call yourselves Christian, but fail to purify and develop your mind and body from the defilements of this world -- and do not possess the true Knowledge of the Spiritual Christ -- and have not yourselves inherited the same higher powers of mind that the Son of God promised all his followers would possess -- then “it will be in vain that you bear His name”. And again, this is demonstrated in the words spoken to those who believed upon the coming of the Lord, and even called upon his name, but had failed to bring with them the oil of purification, where it was stated: "Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you"

The Truth And TheWay
Shalom David who writes:
In the Gospel of Matthew the term "outer darkness" is used three times in conjunction with the fate of the Jews who did not seek to walk in TheWay. The man who had come to TheCall, and had failed to put on the required wedding garment of consecrated purity, was bound hand and foot and cast into the abyss and confusion of this world -- i.e., "So he said to him, 'Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?' And he was speechless. Then the king said to the servants, 'Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.' For many are called, but few are chosen" (Matt 22:12-14 NKJ). Yet, because they adhere to the doctrines of Pagan Rome, the modern Church emphatically states that Jesus deceived the people with this parable, because it demonstrates the importance that the believers actions play in their salvation. In like manner, the servant who put his talent into the earth, instead of multiplying what he had received was also cast into the "outer darkness" (Mat 25:14-30).
It is important that we ask the question: What is the "outer darkness"? What it represents is the outer dimensions of mind and consciousness that is associated with the natural organic mind of man. With respect to this condition of mind and being, the scriptures warn that it is the reason why the people of this world will look upon the Mysteries of God as utter "foolishness"!!! All of us are equally the Prodigal Sons and Daughters of our Heavenly Father. We are presently dwelling in the "far country" -- dwelling under the power of what the parable portrays as the "citizen" of this world. Paul called it the god of this world.Â The first Spiritual Christians called it the Demiurge, because this Power of the Left Hand is the creator of illusion that keeps the Prodigal Sons and Daughters as slaves to the things of this world. And as the prodigal sons who dwell in the "far country... outer darkness" of mind and being, all of mankind dwells in a state of ignorance with respect to the inner reality of his soul and spiritual natures -- as well as the Inner Kingdom (Lk 17:20-21) -- because he has been cast into what the Bible calls the "outer darkness" of consciousness. And because the lost prodigal sons and daughters dwell in the "outer darkness" of mind and being -- under the control of the god of this world -- failing to remember when they dwelt in the Kingdom of the Father -- Jesus could only speak to them about the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Inner Kingdom, in parables -- i.e., "And the disciples came and said to Him, Why do You speak to them in parables? He answered and said to them, Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For whoever has, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. Therefore I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says: 'Hearing you will hear and shall not understand, and seeing you will see and not perceive; For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, so that I should heal them'" (Matt 13:10-15 NKJ).
What did Jesus discuss only with his core disciples that could not be revealed to the multitude of people who could only be taught in parables? While the foundational concepts of these teachings and concepts that was beyond the perception of those whose carnal mindset and lifestyle caused them to be dull of hearing with eyes that cannot see and minds that cannot comprehend is explored in detail in the article http://TheThreeLies.com , to even maintain that these important teachings could be revealed in the literal text of the Gospels, is the absolute folly of the modern Church that continues to preach the pagan doctrine that the believers actions and lifestyle does not matter -- and their carnal mindset has no significance upon their perception and understanding. Jesus taught that there is One Teacher (see The Inner Search For The True Prophet/Son of God) -- but to learn directly from the Indwelling Logos, it is absolutely necessary to live the Consecrated Life in TheWay and become transformed into the Final Temple. And this is why Jesus warned that the judgment of the complacent believer will be far greater, than the unbelievers -- and why only those who pick up their own cross in imitation of the pattern, can enter into Life -- i.e., "And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it" (Matt 10:38-39 NKJ)
I am just a witness to the Truth and TheWay that the Church has rejected. Quoting The Ten Words: If God intended Jesus to be a one time perpetual sacrifice for the sins of man, then it never would have been stated that "...it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who ...then commit apostasy, since they crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt.. For if we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries." (Heb 6:4-6;10:26-27 RSV). What this means is that the religion of Jesus in its original form was one of spiritual transformation -- and those who willfully sin, crucify the Son of God afresh, and "...there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries." This is why Paul stated with respect to continue to living a sinful life: â€œBut if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressorâ€ (Gal 2:17-18 KJV). Which confirms the alternate ending of the Gospel of Mark which reads: "This Age of lawlessness and unbelieving lies under the sway of Satan, who will not allow what lies under the unclean spirits to understand the truth and power of God; therefore, they said to Christ, reveal your righteousness now. Christ answered them, The term of years for Satan's power has now expired, but other terrors are at hand. I was delivered to death on behalf of sinners, that they might return to the truth and sin no more, that they might inherit that glory of righteousness which is spiritual and imperishable in heaven" (Moffatt, quoting Gospel Of Mark in Codex W - Also quoted by St. Jerome as being the authentic ending of the Gospel of Mark).
In a surviving excerpt of what has been historically known as the Gospel According to the Hebrews, which was reported to be the "original version of Matthew" that was composed in the Hebrew Characters, it was written: "If ye be in my bosom and do not the will of my Father which is in heaven, out of my bosom will I cast you away". In the late nineteenth century a library of scriptures was uncovered which is today known as the Oxyrhynchus Papyri -- wherein this verse is found reading: "Though ye be gathered together with me in my bosom, if ye do not my commandants, I will cast you forth". This same verse of scripture is quoted in what is historically known as the 2nd Epistle of Clement, where it is written: "Let us, then, not only call Him Lord, for that will not save us. For He saith, 'Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall be saved, but he that worketh righteousness' â€¦For this reasonâ€¦ the Lord hath said, 'Even though ye were gathered together to me in my very bosom, yet if ye were not to keep my commandments, I would cast you off, and say unto you, Depart from me; I know you not whence ye are, ye workers of iniquity". What these verses mean is that if you continue to sin after coming to Messiah/Christ, that you are an apostate to the teachings of TheWay, and "...there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries."

Shouldn't The Truth Be Told?
One of the most important questions that must be answered is why did Paul warn the believers “Warn a divisive person once, and then warn him a second time. After that, have nothing to do with him. You may be sure that such a man is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned” (Titus 3:10-11 NIV). The Greek meaning of the word divisive is “one who promotes a sect”. It was for this reason the religion of the Messiah/Christ can have no worldly name, and this is seen in the fact that it was called “The Way”.
To demonstrate Oneness, I usually portray the name of these teachings as TheWay. Further, it is perhaps even more important to recognize that Paul portrayed a person who promotes a sect as being "...warped and sinful; he is self-condemned.”So, the question then becomes this: Was Paul in error? Because if he is not, then the vast majority of people who call themselves saved, born again, and even Christians, are self-condemned counterfeit believers who have no salvation. No wonder the Churches ignore this warning of Paul.
Paul was so adamantly opposed to manmade schisms and carnal opinions that he chastised the believers at Corinith that they were not men of the spirit -- as was evidenced that they had divisions among them. He explained that the carnal, or “natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:14 KJV); and informs them that they are too “carnal, and walk as men” (1 Cor 3:3 KJV) to open the inner door of the mind and learn directly from the Lord via the spirit. From Paul's perspective, the very existence of these divisions was proof the believers at Corinth were too carnal to experience direct communication with the Lord -- which opening of the inner door to the spiritual reality of the Inner Kingdom, was the whole essence of New Covenant theology.
Writing about schisms and divisions, the Church Father Turtillian writes: “On this point, however, we dwell no longer, since it is the same Paul who, in his Epistle to the Galatians, counts 'heresies' among 'the sins of the flesh,' who also intimates to Titus, that 'a man who is a heretic' must be 'rejected after the first admonition,' on the ground that 'he that is such is perverted, and committeth sin, as a self-condemned man.' Indeed, in almost every epistle, when enjoining on us (the duty) of avoiding false doctrines, he sharply condemns heresies. Of these the practical effects are false doctrines, called in Greek heresies, a word used in the sense of that choice which a man makes when he either teaches them (to others) or takes up with them (for himself). For this reason it is that he calls the heretic self-condemned, because he has himself chosen that for which he is condemned”.
In the Gospel preached by Paul, heresy by virtue of an allegiance to manmade doctrinal divisions is considered a “sin of the flesh”, because schisms and differences are the result of natural man clinging to ideas of a carnal nature. Why are these baptized and committed Christians plagued by schisms and divisions? Because they only call upon the Lord with their lips, while failing to do as the Apostle states by following in TheWay and “Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature” (Col 3:5 NIV). A true believer and follower must therefore turn from the understanding of the flesh, or in the words of the Apostle: “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace” (Rom 8:6 KJV).
The key to understanding Paul's statements and warnings about believers who are in reality a heretic who has been turned out of TheWay, is found in Jesus' words: "But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have One Teacher, and you are all brethren" (Matt 23:8 RSV). And that the authentic believers who themselves sincerely and ardently follow in TheWay, are commanded to reject the factions and doctrines of men and seek out this One Teacher, is confirmed in Peter's words to his disciple Clement where he stated: “Hence, O beloved Clement, if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth. For if any one else knows anything, he has received it from Him or from His disciples” (Clementine Homilies). And if the believer asks where they can find this One Teacher? The quotation of Paul you supplied the readers of your invitation says it all -- i.e., that God is "...all pervading all and living in us all". Which is exactly what Peter further reveals to his disciple Clement where he states of the True Prophet/Son of God/Logos: "And therefore I advise not only wise men, but indeed all men who have a desire of knowing what is advantageous to them, that they seek after the true Prophet; for it is He alone who knoweth all things, and who knoweth what and how every man is seeking. For He is within the mind of every one of us, but in those who have no desire of the knowledge of God and His righteousness, He is inoperative; but He works in those who seek after that which is profitable to their souls, and kindles in them the light of knowledge. Wherefore seek Him first of all; and if you do not find Him, expect not that you shall learn anything from any other. But He is soon found by those who diligently seek Him through love of the truth, and whose souls are not taken possession of by wickedness. For He is present with those who desire Him in the innocence of their spirits, who bear patiently, and draw sighs from the bottom of their hearts through love of the truth; but He deserts malevolent minds, because as a prophet He knows the thoughts of every one. And therefore let no one think that he can find Him by his own wisdom, unless, as we have said, he empty his mind of all wickedness, and conceive a pure and faithful desire to know Him. For when any one has so prepared himself, He Himself as a prophet, seeing a mind prepared for Him, of His own accord offers Himself to his knowledge”.
What Paul is actually stating in his admonition to “Warn a person who promotes a sect or doctrine of belief once, and then warn him a second time. After that, have nothing to do with him. You may be sure that such a man is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned” -- is that the only valid teaching from a New Covenant perspective, is how to live the Truth in your daily mindset and lifestyle, so that the inner "narrow gate" begins to open (see http://GateOfEden.com ), and you are able to enter the Kingdom within and learn directly in the Presence of the One Teacher. For someone who claims to believe and calls upon the Name of the Lord with their lips, while failing to live the necessary Consecrated Life in TheWay, by Paul's own admonition such a person is a counterfeit believer who is "...warped and sinful; he is self-condemned.” Thus, the statement by Jesus: “But why do you call Me 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do the things which I say?” (Luke 6:46 NKJ).
Unlike the modern believer who has been driven off the path of TheWay by the doctrines of men, everything that I personally know, has been revealed to me by virtue of my making the journey in TheWay and learning directly from the One Teacher (see Seeking The True Prophet/Son of God). According to the Gospel of John, the man Jesus was in every way 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) -- and the Original New Testament was changed by the Pagan Church of Rome, in order to make Jesus the latest incarnation of the proverbial sun-god which the heathens of Rome worshiped, as demonstrated at Is Jesus God? And because the Church failed to heed the words of Jesus on this primary important teaching, it has not only continued to be turned out of TheWay -- causing the Church itself to be "...warped and sinful [and] ...self-condemned” (see The Apostate Church That Rejects God). And thus, all the countless sects, divisions and factions that have all rejected the warning of Paul, is the direct result of being "turned out of TheWay" in the fourth century by the Pagan Emperor Constantine who brought about Paul's prediction that the Christian world would not only abandon the core original teachings of Jesus, but that they would worship the AntiChrist as God (see http://Ebionite.com/AntiChrist.htm ) -- and because modern Christians continue to cling to these pagan beliefs that became infused in the Church, this grave factional sectarian error continues right up to this day. In fact, in the article http://TheTenWords.com , it is demonstrate that while proof exists, the Christian world continues to reject the very Words of God the Father spoken directly to man, while instead continuing to promote the words inserted into the Gospels by the Pagan Emperor of Rome.
While all the above Gospel and New Covenant teachings are represented in the Bible, they have no place presently on your web site. Shouldn't Christians be at least exposed to the above Gospel facts, so they will be able to find out for themselves if, in the process of rejecting the paganism of Rome, and returning to the original teachings of TheWay, and living the necessary Consecrated Life that transforms them into the required Final Temple, they will fulfill the requirement of Jesus that we are all brothers who must seek out the One Teacher? In view of the fact that Paul warns that those who profess to be believers and followers who "...promotes a sect or doctrine of belief ...is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned”, then what is presented in the above is the most important message that you can present to the congregation of believers.

The Apostate Church - Rejection Of God
In the Gospel accounts there are only two instances where God the Father spoke directly to mankind. Yet, the Christian world not only knowingly rejects the very Words of God spoken to mankind -- concealing these Ultra Important Words spoken directly by God to all of mankind from the rest of the world -- and knowingly clings instead to the words of a Roman emperor who ordered the bishops who held allegiance to him, to change one of the most important Gospel teachings. While Jesus is the Truth, and following him in imitation is TheWay, the Christian world rejects his teachings. Choosing instead the doctrines of the Pagan Emperor of Rome with whom the Church entered into a covenant with -- rejecting the (New) Covenant with God the Father. While the Gospels, as originally written were the Truth and TheWay, the Christian world has knowingly chosen a lie, over the very Words of the Father spoken to mankind. Because the Christian world abandoned Messiah/Christ, for a manmade pagan god, the Church dwells in a Spiritual Diaspora -- alienated from the knowledge of the Kingdom -- unable to enter the True Spiritual Temple -- unable to walk in TheWay.
From a fourth century pagan perspective, the Words spoken by God were unacceptable and thus rejected, and they were edited out and replaced by the Church of Rome. This rejection of God's Words was under the guise that the disciples who walked and spoke with Jesus daily -- who were in a position to speak with Jesus and ask him any question pertaining not only to life and death, but the very reason and objectives of life -- the Church has embraced the pagan doctrine that these very disciples who knew Jesus the best, were heretics because they rejected the religion of the emperor, and were deemed too Jewish to understand his true teachings and nature from a Roman Pagan perspective. The Romans were sun-worshipers -- and by replacing these crucial words spoken to man directly by God, the Church of Rome was able to totally alter the focus of the Gospel teachings of Jesus to make them support the paganism of Rome. While this fact with respect to the corruption and suppression of the Words of God can be proven by six (6) independent early Christian witnesses and more ancient surviving biblical texts, as well as being witnessed as having been said to Jesus in both the Book of Acts, as well as attested to by Paul in the Epistle to the Hebrews, the factual evidence remains ignored by the modern Church.
The TinkerBell Effect: What is called the TinkerBell Effect describes those things that exist only because people believe in them. It is when you think or believe that something is true or will happen, strictly on the basis that you wish it were true or will happen. And it is very much the Tinkerbell Effect that represents the core wishful theology of modern Christianity. Regardless of what the Bible originally stated what the very Words of God were -- regardless of what the original disciples and followers of Jesus stated was true -- regardless of the facts that the historical evidence overwhelmingly reveals -- regardless of what those who have been sent in the Name of the Lord has stated to the Churches -- the very leaders in the Church have continually chosen the manmade doctrines of Rome, than what the scriptures and Jesus himself originally taught. And this hopeful blind belief in the wishful thinking of men, is the absolute epitome of The TinkerBell Effect!!!
As Pagans and sun worshipers, the Romans did not like the Words that God spoken directly to man in the Gospels -- and for those who are faithful enough to seek Truth over the doctrines of men, there are 10 words that were altered from their original context in the New Testament that have the power to re-establish the necessary spiritual foundational essence of the teachings of Yeshua/Jesus which was known as TheWay. By using the earliest of biblical manuscripts in conjunction with six (6) separate quotations of the pre-Nicene (prior to the year 325AD) Church Fathers, it can be demonstrated that the very same scriptures that we use today read differently prior to the adoption of Christianity as the state puppet religion of the Roman government -- ruled over by the Emperor Constantine. Further, in the Book of Acts the disciples witness as to the validity of the original Ten Words -- and these exact words are again witnessed to by Paul in the Epistle to the Hebrews. In one of the oldest existing Bibles known as Codex Bezae, the text reads: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee". And as demonstrated below, this is representative of the words spoken by God the Father, when Yeshua/Jesus was baptized in the Jordan.
What these original Ten Words spoken by the Father to mankind presented, was that the original Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus remained totally faithful to the Gospel teachings. If, as the very words of God stated, that Jesus became the Messiah and Son of God by living the necessary Consecrated Life that enabled him to fulfill the Law within himself, then the truth of the Gospl;e is found in the witness of the Ebionites 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).
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 One with the Indwelling 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).
With respect to the Truth and the Kingdom, the modern Church today has been spiritually castrated (see A Clarification On Health Care Reform – The United Methodist Church). And as demonstrated in the article, Ann Coulter – The Fine Print – If You Can Find A Better Deal, Take It, the primary doctrines of the Church which were ordained under fourth century Pagan Rome, are openly condemned in the Gospels. As stated in the article, Was Jesus God?, What Jesus revealed to mankind was the means to prove the Truth by virtue of your own first-hand spiritual experiences of learning directly from God, but this was changed and corrupted by a clergy who called themselves Orthodox, who used Jesus as a pagan ritual mojo to peddle a license to live in sin. In the subheading entitled The Flawed Doctrine Of Perpetual Redemption in the article at http://TheLie.org , and the following subheading entitled Christian Apostasy, the ignored statement of Paul is explored where he writes: "For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who ...then commit apostasy, since they crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt.. For if we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries." (Heb 6:4-6;10:26-27 RSV).
What this means is that the religion of Jesus in its original form was one of spiritual transformation -- and those who willfully sin, crucify the Son of God afresh, and "...there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries." These, and other such spiritual concepts, were totally unacceptable to the heathen Church of Rome, and the scriptures were corrupted in order to make them support the doctrines of the emperor. That the Church has abandoned the original teachings of Jesus, and have ignored the facts when it is demonstrated that the Church of Rome corrupted the very words of God spoken to man (see http://TheTenWords.com ), means that until the Church itself repents of this great sin against the Holy Spirit, they will remain under a cloud of ignorance in an exile state in a Spiritual Diaspora.

A Clarification on a Recent Health Care Action Alert - United Methodist Church
A recent action alert on health care reform sent out by the General Board of Church and Society to Nebraska United Methodists resulted in a number of responses, including yours. Some of those responses attacked one or more members of my staff. That makes it especially important for me to clarify some of the misunderstandings that have been circulated.
Our action alert encouraged United Methodists in Nebraska to remind our fellow church member, Senator Ben Nelson, of the official denominational stance that it is our belief that â€œit is a governmental responsibility to provide all citizens with health careâ€ (United Methodist Social Principles, paragraph 162.V) and to ask him to support cloture in the Senate so that the health care legislation before the Senate could receive a fair hearing and vote.
At the time of the alert, Senator Ben Nelson had publicly expressed concern about several items in the bill. While abortion was among his concerns, a review of his December 27th remarks (Read his remarks at: http://bennelson.senate.gov/press/speeches/122709-01.cfm) will confirm that his chief concern was the potential economic cost of health care reform on Nebraska state finances, an issue which he was able to address.
Soon after our alert was sent, an article was published online which selectively and deliberately misquoted from and mischaracterized our message. Our action alert did not mention abortion at all because the Senate bill already maintained the status quo on abortion which prohibits federal funding for abortion (known as the Hyde/Helms amendment). Nevertheless, the online article inserted words which we did not write in order to make it appear that our action alert pertained to abortion.
We worked together over many months to outline several principles related to health care reform which reflect Biblical and theological foundational themes. You may find these principles by linking to www.faithfulreform.org/. I want to repeat again that our action alert had nothing to do with abortion. It is most unfortunate that you and a number of other people have been given erroneous information.
Thank you for writing to our agency to express your concerns. In the future, I encourage you to carefully read news accounts you may receive and to examine primary documents before assuming the worst.
