A Message To An Atheist - Are The Scriptures Out-Dated?
I came across this meme on the right, and decided to address the reasons for the ignorance of believers and critics alike to understand the true meaning and purpose of the scriptures.
The Bible does not make much sense to you, because you neither know how it must be used and applied -- and neither do you possess an awareness of your own Cosmology of Mind and Being -- and especially the Laws and Forces of Consciousness. There are two (2) paradigms of reality that all seekers of Truth must come to terms with -- i.e, (1) that the mind of an infant is empty, and in need of being filled by the wisdom of man; (2) that the mind is connected to an inner Source of Knowledge and Truth that must be tapped into.
All religions very quickly become corrupted, because it is difficult for the vast majority of mankind to comprehend the reality of the above second choice. In the case of Christianity, once the Church fell under the control of faux-clergy and despotic rulers, the scriptures were very quickly corrupted with the most important teachings removed -- the body of believers who understood the second paradigm of mind were hunted down as heretics -- and the Church institutionalized as a puppet of a series of Roman Emperors who used man-made Church dogma to control the people.
Contrary to popular belief, the Jews were condemned by Jesus because they threw away the Key of Knowledge in their outward interpretation of the scriptures (see http://KeyOfKnowledge.org ). Because each of us is born into this world as an embryonic-image of projection of our Higher Soul-Self (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image http://SoulSelf.org#EmbryonicSoulImage ) -- and when the scriptures are applied as the author's intended (see http://AnInconvenientTruth.org ), they develop the Intuitive Spheres of Mind that man's culture leaves dormant and atrophied by an over dependence upon developing the mind in accord with the above paradigm number 1, which is based upon the empty mind philosophy.
The Gospels Embody The Principles Of Anamnesis http://GospelOfThomas.Nazirene.org#Anamnesis -- and when used as the Key of Knowledge and turned within self, are an integral resource for developing the latent Intuitive Spheres of Mind that connect the person with the Inner Source within them. But what this also means is that the modern Church, as well as those who are seen as biblical experts and scholars -- as well as critics -- all of whom read the scriptures as if they are historical narratives -- instead of events of Inner Mind that allegorically reveal the Forces and Laws of Consciousness -- which means that modern believers, scholars and critics are like the Jews, throwing away the Key of Knowledge -- rendering the scriptures worthless to achieve their intended objective and purpose.
In the Divine Pattern of Creation, the Feminine is the embodiment of the Intuitive Spheres of Mind that are necessary to develop and connect to this Inner Source of Knowledge and Truth. But throughout the history of mankind, there has always been a war on the Intuitive that woman is the embodiment of (see Academia And The Feminist Cultural War On Women http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#AcademiaWarOnWomen ). And so long as mankind continues to make war on the Feminine Intuitive Powers and Spheres of mind, men and women will remain prisoners in what is portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being -- which parallels the prisoners in Plato's Cave of Illusions (see http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org ). Which means that it is useless for believers and critics to study the scriptures, when they read them in the manner of the Pharisees and throw away the Key of Knowledge ( http://KeyOfKnowledge.org
