Do Modern Church Mithraic-Christians Have Salvation?

The following is a reply to a letter asking why the Original followers of Jesus did not believe he was God-Incarnate:

Jesus taught that the Kingdom is within you (see The Fatal Error Of The Church ) -- which means that there are inner realities of mind and being that is not of this world.  With respect to the beginning of John: The interpretation of the word The Word, is from the Greek word Logos -- meaning, The Mind of God (see ).   And if you read the words of the Apostle Peter as preserved in the Homilies of his disciple Clement (see The True Prophet ), you will find that the Logos or Son of God that is portrayed as the True Prophet, is equally within the mind of all of mankind.   And, as documented in the earliest of Church writings, Jesus was a true holy man who fulfilled the Law within himself, and became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) at his baptism.   Quoting from The Ebionite Nazirene Witness  
The witness of the disciples who personally knew Jesus, that he was a man who was Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by God -- but they changed the very words of God spoken to mankind -- i.e., "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee".  What these original Ten Words spoken by the Father to mankind presented, was that the original EbioniteNazirene disciples of Jesus remained totally faithful to the Gospel teachings.   If, as the very words of God spoken to mankind stated, that Jesus became the Messiah (Anointed) and Son of God by living the necessary Consecrated Life that enabled him to fulfill the Law within himself, then the truth of the Gospel is found in the witness of the Ebionite 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 ).   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).     
That the historical Jesus was a true holy man who became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ by fulfilling the Royal Law within himself, is attested to at Acts 2:22 where Jesus is portrayed as "a man, attested to you by God" -- and this was demonstrated by God performing "mighty works and wonders and signs that God did through him in your midst".   If Jesus was himself God incarnate as believed by the later Romans, then these words portraying Jesus as a man approved by God through the works and wonders that God did through him, never would have been presented in this manner.  
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 At-One with the Indwelling Logos/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). 
The original Gospels prior to the very Words of God that was spoken to mankind was corrupted by the Church of Constantine, confirmed the above when at his baptism in the Jordan the actual words spoken stated: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee".  That the spiritually degenerate leaders of the fourth century pagan Church of Rome could not comprehend the difference between being the Logos -- and fulfilling the Law to become At-One with the Logos -- thereby manifesting the Logos in the world by proxy -- does not mean that the spiritually degenerate pagans are correct.  

In the subheading entitled The Original Teachings Have Nothing In Common With Church Dogma , I demonstrate that the whole of modern Church dogma is totally based upon the faux-gnosticism of Mithraic and Manichaean sources -- supported by the removal of the most important spiritual teachings in the Gospels (see ).   And in view of the fact that Mithraic initiates were called Christians prior to the birth of my brother Jesus -- i.e., The New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge confirms that the name Christian "originated outside of Christian and Jewish circles". The Mercer Dictionary of the Bible states that: "By the late first and early second centuries the name ‘Christian,’ which early believers avoided using of themselves, was beginning to be accepted". -- which means that you are a Mithraic-Christian who has virtually nothing in common with the original followers of Jesus or the original Gospel teachings of TheWay.   
The Mithraic-Christians believed that Jesus was the latest incarnation of the Mithra, the sun-god who was born on Dec. 25th and resurrected on Easter (Ishtar).  Mithraic (and Manichaean) teachings are based upon the doctrine of Original Sin -- which has no place in the Original Gospel Teachings (see The Folly Of Original Sin: ).  And as demonstrated in the above and on the links provided, the belief that Jesus was the latest incarnation in the Mithraic sun-god as taught by the Church of Rome which corrupted the scriptures to support their dogma, has virtually nothing in common with the Original Gospel Teachings of TheWay.   And since unlike you, I am not a Mithraic-Christian -- and having myself come to TheCall ( ) and have been taught directly by the Indwelling Logos (aka Son of God/True Prophet), I remain totally faithful to the Original Gospel Teachings of TheWay.   

You better pray that the belief in the Mithraic-Christ provides you the salvation you seek.   It appears to me that you have been seduced by the god of this world.

Using The Scriptures As The Key Of Knowledge

At a certain point in a person's spiritual development, they must become aware of the holographic reality of the Divine Pattern of Creation that is replicated into every aspect of the Whole.  In a holographic pattern, the reality of one level has parallel qualities on all levels.   The Gospel of Thomas states: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you..." ( ).  What you are actually perceiving is a reflection of your own mind.   Which is reflected in the Delphic Oracle in the words: "Heed these words, you who wish to probe the depths of Nature: If you do not find within your Self that which you seek, neither will you find it outside.  If you ignore the wonders of your own House, how do you expect to find other wonders?  In you is hidden the Treasure of Treasures.  Know Thyself and you will know the Universe and the Gods."

As enlightened mystics and visionaries, the authors of the scriptures understood the above reality as explored at .   And they used the allegorical language of the Soul in which this world of shadow-images ( ) is composed -- which is why the Gospel of Thomas states to "Recognize what is in your sight...", because what you think you see is a reflection of your own condition of mind and thinking.   When you look at the scriptures you think you are perceiving Jesus -- but what is being presented is an allegorical portrayal of your own mind that is being reflected back to you.   And when you are going to use the scriptures for their intended purpose as the Key of Knowledge ( ), the rule is that once a person, place or thing is used in the scriptures, the reference is no longer to anything or person external to self -- but is portraying an aspect of your own mind.  As an example, the Gospel of Thomas states: “The disciples said to Jesus, We know that you will depart from us. Who is to be our leader? Jesus said to them, Wherever you are, you are to go to James the righteous, for whose sake heaven and earth came into being" -- and as explored at , unless you personify within your own mind and being what is portrayed in the name Jacob/James, then you will never understand either your own self, or any aspect of the life you are living.   And this is also true of when the scriptures utilize the name Jesus as a final pattern and reality of mind that you must bring about within your own Self.   And this is also true of all the rest of the names, places and things portrayed in the text of the scriptures.   

In the Fourth Fatal Mistake in the article on the Key of Knowledge ( ) the Church Father Origen makes reference to Paul's portrayal of the scriptures as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14) when read literally, and writes with respect to using the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge:
“But all the narrative portion, relating either to the marriages, or to the begetting of the children, or to battles of different kinds, or to any other histories whatever, what else can they be supposed to be, save the forms and figures of hidden and sacred things? As men, however, make little effort to exercise their intellect, or imagine that they possess knowledge before they really learn, the consequence is that they never begin to have knowledge"
What does this mean?   What it means is that "...all the narrative portion [of the scriptures], relating either to the marriages, or to the begetting of the children, or to battles of different kinds, or to any other histories whatever", do not at all pertain to historical accounts of man's more distant past -- but rather, to the Forces and Laws that are presently working within man's own mind and being.   Why?   How could Origen who was called the prince of Christian learning second only to the Apostles themselves, state that the historical interpretation of the scriptures is "worthless"?  And that what is presented in the written text as marriages, the begetting of children, and the many various wars and battles are not at all historical -- but rather, an allegorical portrayal of the Forces and Laws working within one's own mind and being?
What Origen states is true -- and when you read of a marriage or the begetting of children or any other portrayal of what appears to be history, is in reality presenting the Realities, Laws and Forces of your own Mind.   And this includes Jesus, the Virgin Birth, the twelve disciples and even the crucifixion.   Unless you bring what is allegorical portrayed in the scriptures about within your own mind and being, then you will fail to bring about the necessary subsequent stages of birth that will permit you to enter Into the Promise of Life. If you read the scriptures as historical narratives in the manner of the Jews, then you will have thrown away the Key of Knowledge.
