Jesus And The Political/Religious Environment Of Truth

Most religious people look for a Messiah who will come and confirm the validity of their religious beliefs, and set up a New World Order where mankind will live in peace.   The Jews expect a Messiah who will confirm them as the Chosen People -- the Christians expect Jesus -- Islam expects a Muslim Messiah who will kill all the Christians and Jews who fail to convert to the worship of Allah.   And what all these Messianic visions have in common, is the fact that they all ignore the paradigm set forth in the parable of the prodigal son -- i.e., that the son must of his own accord return to the Kingdom from which he originally emerged.   And what this means is that (1) this world serves an important purpose in the spiritual evolution of the lost prodigal son; (2) that a true Messiah will come and teach those who have the ears to hear, how to make the return journey in TheWay back to the Kingdom.   

From the perspective of the True Messiah who is rejected by the religions and authorities of this world, such a soul understands that the environment is everything -- i.e., the environment of the body -- the environment of the family -- the environment of the community of believers.   Paul commanded the community of believers not to even sit at the table and have dinner with sinners and the spiritually unclean (see The Folly Of Social Justice).   Quoting the article The Perfect Seed in the parable of the Sower and the Seed: What the parable of the sower dispels is the notion of most Messianic and Christian faith-based believers that it does not matter how we live, once we have received the Word of God in the form of the Gospel message.  This misconception can be compared to a man who desires to plant a vineyard, and having procured the finest seedlings ever developed, attempts to plant these seedlings in a desert.   Regardless of the fact that we possess the most perfect seedlings ever known to man, when we live our lives in the manner of a spiritually barren wasteland, the vineyard that we envision can never manifest and become a reality. In our quest to demonstrate this fact we must ask what the Bible states: In the parable of the sower (Mt 13:1-58; Mk 4:1-20; Lk 8:4-56), Jesus taught that the Word could only be fruitful when it was planted in the proper environment.   The Word that fell upon the ground at the side of The Way, could not become fruitful because Satan takes away what was sown.  And if we pose the question as to where was the seed sown?  The scriptures states "...the word that was sown in their hearts" (Mark 4:15 KJV) -- thus we can see that Satan has the power to alienate us from our own true inner spiritual reality.
Not only is the environment of the body-vessel of the utmost importance, but the first objectives of the disciples in the Book of Acts was to set up the proper environment in the Communities in which the seekers would dwell.   With respect to this necessary environment in our own time, the opening of the American Spirituality segment now reads: By Divine Design, the Laws moved the hearts and minds of men in the creation of the United States which has brought about and manifest what is often portrayed as Exceptionalism in the world today.  And the Spiritual Foundation and Roots of the Nation was brought forth by our Constitutional Framers -- a group of souls that are perhaps best portrayed as The American Gnostics.    Our Nation was conceived in Spirit, and born from the wisdom and efforts of truly advanced spiritual souls who entered the world in the 18th century to create a foundational environment that would permit mankind to aspire to his highest potential in all things -- and especially in the development and manifestation of his latent spirituality.   Thus, this core group of our Constitutional Framers who I portray as American Gnostics, were drawn from the upper echelons of all religious paths -- and especially Christianity which "...they considered true, original Christianity to be the same as this original natural religion" which they embraced -- and they were for the most part called Deists, because of their enlightened understanding of the Laws.   The Encyclopedia defines Deism as: "Deism holds that God does not intervene with the functioning of the natural world in any way, allowing it to run according to the laws of nature that he configured when he created all things. ...Prior to the 17th century the terms ['Deism' and 'Deist'] were used interchangeably with the terms 'theism' and 'theist,' respectively.  ...Both [theists and Deists] asserted belief in one supreme God, the Creator... and agreed that God is personal and distinct from the world. But the theist taught that God remained actively interested in and operative in the world which he had made, whereas the Deist maintained that God endowed the world at creation with self-sustaining and self-acting powers and then abandoned it to the operation of these powers acting as second causes."   
When rightfully understood, what the founding American Gnostics (Deists) understood that the theists did not, is the reality that the Laws of God that were brought into existence and being at Creation, supported and sustained all realities of this world -- that these Laws were never suspended in order to provide one group of men an advantage or special dispensation over other groups of men.   What this means is that the Laws of God are predictable, rational, logical, and are totally uniform in their application in the lives of all of mankind.   Moreover, because these Laws in their higher purpose respond to man's thoughts, desires and actions, they exist in the manner of a Living Bio-Feedback machine that brought about the higher spiritual objectives with which God imbued all of Creation with in the beginning.   What this means is that no one is exempt from the Laws and the Will of God -- no one has an unfair advantage over their brothers and sisters -- that all of mankind has a common destiny that is controlled, orchestrated and brought about by the Laws -- and that there is a higher purpose for all things than what man can envision in his unenlightened state of mind. 

While Christianity should be the environment of spiritual rebirth that enables both Judaism and Islam to rediscover their true spiritual roots, the Paganism infused in the dogma of the Church in the fourth century has inhibited this destiny (see Government Intrusion And Takeover Of Religion).   And it has become virtually impossible for the faith-based Christian believer to understand the great truths that have been presented in the parables, because of the condemnation of important original teachings that were declared heresy by the Roman Emperors who ruled the Church (see The Spiritual Castration Of The Church - The Removal Of The Teachings On The Preexistent Soul).   If it is true that the lost prodigal son at one time dwelt in the Kingdom, and does not remember because he dwells in the "outer darkness" under the control of the Citizen of the Far Country -- and to overcome his own spiritual amnesia and begin to remember his more distant past, he must follow in the footsteps of Jesus by picking up his own cross and travailing in TheWay -- then it can be understood how the modern spiritually disenfranchised Church is throwing away the necessary Constitutional Foundation that was provided by the blood of our forefathers, in the quest to bring about Christian Marxism (see The Folly Of Social Justice).  And while even Pres. Obama has preached his Socialist gospel of Collective Salvation, the only salvation portrayed in the Gospel accounts is when the individual believer/disciple as represented in the lost prodigal son returns to the Kingdom of his own volition.

What is the Truth?   If it is true that both the Gospel teachings and the scriptures were corrupted by Pagan Rome (see The Corruption Of The Church), then the question that each and every Christian must ask: How do I prove what is the Truth?   That is easy -- i.e., create the proper spiritually clean and consecrated environment within your body/mind, your family and community.

Is Mormonism A Cult? Or Is One Cult Condemning Another Cult?

Government Intervention In Religion: The Cross And The Seatbelt
Pastor Robert Jeffress who spoke out in favor of Gov. Rick Perry and opposed Mitt Romney on the grounds that Mormonism is a cult, pointed out the difference between what he portrayed as a sociological cult, from a theological cult see Fox & Friends Interview), in his statement that: "Mormonism was invented 1800 years after Jesus Christ and the founding of Christianity, and it has its own founder, Joseph Smith, its own set of doctrines and its own book, the Book of Mormon. And that, by definition, is a theological cult, that's all I'm saying."  In an interview on CNN (see CNN), the Rev. Jeffress explained: "When somebody asks me a theological question about Mormonism, I have a responsibility to tell the truth," he said. "Mormonism has never been considered a part of evangelical historic Christianity."   And when these words of the Rev. Jeffress are properly understood, what we have is an older Theological Cult throwing stones as a newer Theological Cult -- and the chickens coming home to roost on the reality that, those who live in glass houses, shouldn't throw stones. 

With respect to the statement: "When somebody asks me a theological question ...I have a responsibility to tell the truth" -- not only is the mainstream of Christianity founded upon a "...set of doctrines" that is a total departure from the original teachings of Jesus and TheWay -- but when it is recognized that the 4th century Church edited and rewrote the scriptures to the degree that the Roman Christian Cult has "...its own book", that is vastly different than the original scriptures that were in use prior to the 4th century -- and while this fact can easily be proven, then it must be concluded that Pastor Jeffress and the whole of the Christian world remains in denial of the facts!!!   Yet, like the pot that calls the kettle black, they deceptively throw stones as Mormonism which is the religion of Mitt Romney.

Prior to the Nicene take over of the Church by the Pagan Emperor Constantine in the 4th century, the wisest and most intelligent of enlightened men and women were the Christians who possessed the Spiritual Knowledge that provided them a higher understanding of the Laws and the realities of this world that continues to remain virtually unknown even in modern times.   And, what is not at all realized, is the fact that the Core of the Spiritual Christians possessed far greater knowledge than any of the pseudo-scholars who teach in our universities today.   What happened?   There was a segment of the Church that had become paganized and morally bankrupt (see The Example Of Paul Of Samosata ), and these very pagan Christians entered into a covenant with the Emperor Constantine, and the Church became proscribed by pagan Rome.   The result was that (1) the emperor who ruled over the Church, dictated the acceptable doctrines of belief; (2) the Spiritual Christians were denounced and condemned as heretics who were hunted down and murdered; (3) the most corrupted copies of the scriptures (see Bible Corruption) were further rewritten in order to make them support the dogma of pagan Rome; (4) and the higher spiritual knowledge that the Church previously possessed, became outlawed as heresy.   Contrary to the modern Bible, the original scriptures supported the original position that Jesus was a man who lived a holy and consecrated life -- and thus, became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) at his baptism in the Jordan (see The Ten Words).   That the scriptures are themselves an allegory that both preserve and conceal the inner core of teachings that is necessary to gain entrance to the Kingdom Within (see An Inconvenient Truth), is a reality of fact that the modern Church remains in denial of today.    And if the modern Christian is ignorant, then this ignorance is directly attributable to government intervention into the core doctrines of belief which continues to be embraced right into the present time.   Thus, when modern Atheists such as Richard Dawkins portrays the Christian as ignorant, what he is unknowingly condemning is the government doctrines that were imposed upon the Church.   Men such as  Richard Dawkins are not only absolutely clueless as to the nature and reality of the Truth of the pre-Nicene Christian Church, but their Paradigm of Thinking has totally alienated them from man's true higher reality.   

Under the heading of American Spirituality it is demonstrated that our Constitutional Framers who understood what is portrayed as the Laws of Nature and Nature's God (see American Spirituality), where themselves enlightened as to the wholesale corruption which the Church suffered under the control of Pagan Rome.    And thus, their First Amendment prohibition against the government enacting any law that infringes upon the practice of religion, is the result of the spiritual disenfranchisement of the mainstream of the Christianity by the previous governments which exhibited total and complete control over the dogmatic doctrines of the Church -- dogmatic manmade doctrines which are still embraced even today.    More than anything else our Constitutional framers understood human nature -- and that once unleashed, the reigns of government will corrupt and attempt to exercise Absolute Power in direct defiance even to its Constitutional Charter and Mandates -- and this fact is demonstrated conclusively in the issue of the claim of a religious exemption from the seat belt law (see Is North Carolina Constitutionally Immoral?).   And in the same way that the North Carolina Alamance County Court has disallowed the true spiritual practice of religion -- even discarding the very primary tenets of the Constitution (see Court Ruling) -- it is important to be cognizant of the fact that when Christianity became proscribed under Pagan Rome which exercised absolute control over the doctrines of the Church, there was no judicial appeal or higher authority -- and to disagree with the dictates of the emperor, was a sentence of death.          

The Spiritual Core of Christianity remains virtually unknown today, because of direct government intrusion into the affairs of the Church with respect to acceptable doctrines of belief.   In the same way that in China only those Churches which are approved by the government are permitted, so too was the Church that came into being in the fourth century under the direct control of the Roman Emperors.   That the segment of the Church which called itself Orthodox, was a mere puppet of Pagan Rome and had little to nothing in common with the original teachings and objectives of Jesus and TheWay, should come as no surprise to the modern believer in view of the many statements of biblical scholars such as A. Powell Davies who attempted to warn the Christian world that discoveries such as the Dead Sea Scrolls had confirmed what they had suspected and believed all along -- i.e., that the Emperor Constantine and the Pagan Church of Rome created a religion of blind faith and belief where he wrote that: “Biblical scholars 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).   Thus, this long ignored statement prompts us to ask: Why didn't the biblical scholars understand the true origin of Christianity prior to the discovery and examination of the Dead Sea Scrolls?   To answer this question we must consult the findings of Prof. Elaine Pagles who correctly writes: “It is the winners who write history - their way. No wonder, then, that the viewpoint of the successful majority has dominated all traditional accounts of the origin of Christianity… It suggests that these religious debates - questions of the nature of God, or of Christ - simultaneously bear social and political implications that are crucial to the development of Christianity as an institutional religion. In simplest terms, ideas which bear implications contrary to that development come to be labeled as heresy; ideas which implicitly support it become orthodox” (see Pagles, The Gnostic Gospels).    In not learning the lessons of history, modern believers have overlooked the fact that when despots rule, they not only annihilate all opposition -- but they "...write history - their way" -- and they corrupt and burn whatever writings stand in opposition to their supremacy and rule.   Which means that those doctrines of belief that are today seen as orthodox and promoted by the modern-day Church as being authentic, are themselves drawn from the side of "...political implications that [were] crucial to the development of Christianity as an institutional religion" under the direct control of Pagan Rome.   In the case of the Christian Church beginning in the fourth century, to disagree with the doctrines affirmed by the Emperor Constantine, carried with it the sentence of death.   Thus, Edward Gibbon writes in the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire: ”Constantine easily believed that the heretics, who presumed to dispute his opinions or to oppose his commands, were guilty of the most absurd and criminal obstinacy... Not a moment was lost in excluding the ministers and teachers of the separated congregations from any share of the rewards and immunities which the emperor had so liberally bestowed on the orthodox clergy. But as the sectaries might still exist under the cloud of royal disgrace, the conquest of the East was immediately followed by an edict which announced their total destruction”.    Thus, in the same way that whoever did not embrace the religion of the emperor met with the sentence of death, whatever scriptures did not conform to the approved version, was immediately destroyed (see ).  

The term BC with respect to the beginning of our Common Era, should be reevaluated to indicate Before Constantine with respect to the birth of the Christ that is worshiped in the modern Church and promoted by its secularized (Orthodox) dogma.   That the modern-day Christ and the religion of the Church were conceived and born under the dominion of the Roman Emperor Constantine -- and that the dogma of the Church was purely political, in contradistinction to the spiritual foundation of the original teachings -- is demonstrated in the fact that modern Christianity has very little in common with the original objectives of the teachings of TheWay which was to bring about "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”  (see Expansion Of Mind) -- which has absolutely nothing in common with the blind faith dogmatized Church that came into being in the fourth century under the rulership and doctrinal control of Pagan Rome.   But the fact that the modern Christians worship the satanic god of Constantine should come as no surprise, in view of the fact that the Apostle Paul predicted that the worship of the true God would cease, and those who called themselves Christian would instead worship Satan (see The Church of the AntiChrist).   That the objective of what Paul portrays as the god of this world, is to keep the congregation of Christians ignorant and promoters of blind-faith in the spurious doctrines of Pagan Rome, has for the most part continued to inhibit the True Spiritual ReBirth of the Church.   And while pseudo-priests such as Martin Luther convinced the Church to embrace the dogma of faith apart from actions -- to the degree that every tenet of the modern Church is openly condemned in their own New Testament (see The Lie & The Ten Minute Test), the modern believer continues to ignore the scriptures in their allegiance to the dogma of Pagan Rome.   And, just as equally important to understand, is that "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”  has absolutely nothing to do with the expansion of the physical brain -- but rather, both the refinement of the physical body that permits this expansion of mind to be brought about, and the development of those areas which lie under the control of the innate Intuitive Spheres of the Mind that the physical brain does not naturally support.
