The Lost Prodigal Son, And The Christian Diaspora

In a recent Renew American article by the Rev. Mark Creech entitled: Dead Sea Scroll Exhibit Testifies The Bible Is True, we are provided first hand insight into why the Christian prodigal sons and daughters not only remain lost, but have been banished to a Spiritual Diaspora where they continue to suffer under the control of what Jesus portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country. And while the Christians should be the Light of the world, this Light has been snuffed out, because of the long series of lies and deceptions that they embrace, when the fourth century Church embraced the doctrines of the Pagan Emperor of Rome. And while they dwell under the grave misconception that they broke the shackles of paganism during the Reformation, because the Catholic priest Martin Luther never had a very clear understanding of the original teachings of Jesus and TheWay (see The Legacy Of Martin Luther), they merely broke free of one variety of shackles, only to be subdued by another variety which continues to enslave the Christian world to this very day.

It is not that Jesus is not true -- but rather, the manmade pagan doctrines of belief that the Christian world continues to cling to, has inhibited the flock of believers from understanding the original objectives and destiny that these important teachings were intended to bring about in the lives of the congregations. And no finer example of this fact, is demonstrated in the grave doctrinal misconceptions that are presented in the Rev. Creech's article on the Dead Sea Scrolls. To which I responded in a letter:

Shalom Rev. Mark Creech:

I was sent the below column that you authored -- and in light of the facts -- it is difficult to understand how you can lie to the people in the manner that you have. Take the example where it is written in the below article: Also (2) extensive quotations of the New Testament occur in the writings of the early Church Fathers, as further proof that the New Testament writings were known to them, possessing the same content as we have today -- what is being stated is that such quotations as found in The Ten Words ( ) which are drawn directly from the Church Fathers which are being made reference to, are the same as what is found in the Bible today. No doubt, since your readers take your word for it, and no one actually looks these quotations up, they never know that they are being lied to. If The Ten Words which are attested to by both the Church Fathers, as well as the more ancient texts of the New Testament, represent the original message Gospels, then the Ebionites (see ) who knew Jesus -- walked with him -- learned from him -- and knew his family -- and were condemned by the Church as heretics -- it means that the Ebionites are correct, and the modern Church is in grave error. Does it matter? Yes! In ways that the faithful flock of believers can never even begin to imagine. Moreover, as can be plainly seen in the article ( ), the congregation that has put their faith in the clergy, are being lied to.

Quoting Prof. Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls, Prof. Burrows writes: “There are those who believe or assume that the Greek and Hebrew texts from which our translations are made are infallible. No person who has studied textual criticism at all could believe that. The most conservative scholars in the most conservative churches recognize that the text has become corrupt at many points in the course of its transmission. If that were not already well known and universally admitted, the Dead Sea Scrolls would demonstrate it conclusively.”

There is extensive documentation in the article on Bible Corruption at , which demonstrates the outlandish deception of the article you authored. Quoting this article: The truth and the facts to the matter is very clearly expressed in the words of Prof. Bart D. Ehrman in his book, The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture, where he warns us that: "...theological disputes, specifically disputes over Christology, prompted Christian scribes to alter the words of scripture in order to make them more serviceable for the polemical task. Scribes modified their manuscripts to make them more patently ‘orthodox’ and less susceptible to ‘abuse’ by the opponents of orthodoxy" -- which orthodoxy was to bring the text of the Bible into conformity with the doctrines and tenets of the Church of the Roman Emperor Constantine.

While you are correct with respect to the absolute need for people in our present morally challenged culture to embrace the teachings of the Gospel, even more important is for the Gospel message to be restored to its original spiritual essence prior to being corrupted by the Pagan Church of Rome. In view of the fact that like you, I live in North Carolina, if you would like to discuss the facts, I would be glad to meet with you.

In truth, to even suggest that what is portrayed as The Ten Words "...possesses the same content as we have today" in the modern Bibles used by the Church, is such a deception, that it would have to be seen as an outlandish lie!!! To the degree that one Christian Bible Commentary states that if these words represent the original teachings, that the modern doctrinal positions embraced by the Church, would be “vain and baseless”. And thus, because the words spoken to Jesus at his baptism in the Jordan were altered by the later scribes in order to make the biblical text reflect the doctrines of the Church of Rome, the Christian world has become lost and self-banished to a Spiritual Diaspora that has caused them to become spiritually impotent. To the degree that Dead Sea Scroll expert A. Powell Davies professed: “Biblical scholars”, he writes, "were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been” (quoted by Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls). And the essence of the grave differences in what Christians believe about Jesus based upon Church doctrine, and what Jesus actually taught and what the Bible itself originally stated prior to being corrupted, is so far removed from the original spiritual objectives of the New Covenant Teachings, that the Christian lost prodigal sons and daughters remain imprisoned and unable to escape the shackles of what Paul portrayed as the god of this world.

Bible Expert Proclaims: Jesus Is Not God

Shalom Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson:
In the WorldNetDaily article entitled Bible Expert Proclaims: Jesus Is Not God, it does not reveal the name of the person portrayed as the Bible Go-To-Guy who declared that Jesus is not God. Joe Kovacs will not supply me the answer to who this person is, because he is merely peddling books that only present half-truths at best.
That the Bible, prior to being corrupted ( ), demonstrated that Jesus became the Messiah/Christ -- and the Adopted Son of God for the first time -- is proven conclusively at . What modern Christians are unable to understand, is the Inner Kingdom that Jesus taught (see ). And while Christians may not like the truth, or understand the difference between the man Jesus and the indwelling Son of God, the fact that they reject knowledge and continue to worship in the manner of Pagan Rome, is their own folly. If, as Jesus taught, the Kingdom is within (Luke 17:20-21), then it is in this inner Kingdom that you will find the Son of God/Logos -- and those who seek it, become the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) as Jesus taught.
The disciples understood that Jesus was a man who fulfilled the Law and became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) at the baptism in the Jordan -- i.e., that Jesus 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).
It is further documented by the earliest of Church authorities that they understood that Jesus became the Messiah by fulfilling the Law within himself -- i.e., they understood 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." Hence, when true believers and disciples "...thus fulfill the law, they are able to become Christs, for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity." (Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34). The objective of fulfilling the Law within one's self in the endeavor to become the Final Temple (see ), is the walking in the "narrow way" that Jesus taught was necessary. That this understanding of Jesus and his teachings became changed under Pagan Rome, is because they were too heathen to understand -- and they literally worshiped everything under the sun as gods.
In order to understand why the vast majority of people are totally unaware of what Jesus taught with respect to the Inner Kingdom ( ), you have to recognize that the lost prodigal sons and daughters presently dwell in what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see ). And that within you there is a "narrow gate" that can open unto those who overcome the Law as Jesus taught to do, and enter the Inner Kingdom. Jesus and his disciples taught that there is an Inner Teacher -- i.e., often called the Logos, the Son of God, the Teacher of Righteousness, and the True Prophet -- and the objective of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay, is to learn from this Inner Teacher -- and not the doctrines of men. The verses that were changed in the Bible that proves that Jesus became the Messiah at his baptism ( ), as well as the above quotations, are all detailed in the account of Peter as preserved by his disciple Clement in his Homilies -- wherein, Peter explains about the Inner True Prophet/Logos/Son of God: . 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”. (see ).
The vast majority of believers who can be rightfully portrayed as embracing the carnal doctrines of men, who "...have no desire of the knowledge of God and His righteousness, He is inoperative", continue to dwell in the "outer darkness" of profound spiritual ignorance. Jesus did not want believers to worship him and call him God -- but rather, to imitate him and fulfill the Law within themselves so that they too could be the prodigal sons who returned to the Kingdom of the Father. Yet, to the heathen minds of the Church of Rome, Jesus was little more than a pagan mojo that permitted them to continue to live in sin. That this doctrine of perpetual redemption is openly condemned in the New Testament, is demonstrated conclusively in the article The Lie ( ). The inner "narrow gate" which permits the true disciples to overcome the ignorance of the "outer darkness", is portrayed in the words that "...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."
The Christian world continues to embrace and adhere to the doctrines of Pagan Rome -- and thus, in seeking the pseudo-teachers of this world, they have failed to fulfill the requirement to " Him first of all; and if you do not find Him, expect not that you shall learn anything from any other." And that they do not understand the difference between the man Jesus, and the indwelling Logos/Son of God that " inoperative" within them, is because they have failed to live as Jesus taught, and like the Pharisees they cling to the doctrines of men.
While the person you portray as the Bible Go To Guy understands that Jesus is not God, he does not appear to understand how Jesus became One with God (see ), or the difference between the man Jesus who taught that he was our brother, and the indwelling Logos/Son of God that dwells within the mind of every man. And I would greatly appreciate that you forward this e-mail to this person who you portray, so that he can better understand what Jesus actually taught, verses what Pagan Rome taught and Christians continue to believe today.
