The Pre-Existent Soul As The True Gospel Foundation

If you read the Gospels from a different foundational mindset and lifestyle from which it was conceived and sprang forth, then you will never be able to understand the important concepts and teachings set forth by Jesus and the authors.  Who was Jesus?  Man, Myth or God?   Theologian Albert Schweitzer suggested that there will never be one answer to that question.   He said that looking for Jesus in history is like looking down a well: You see only your own reflection.  The “real” Jesus, Schweitzer says, will remain “a stranger and an enigma” What this means is that when the Gentiles who were pagan in their mindset and thinking, attempted to interpret the Gospels which were composed by Essene, Ebionite Nazirenes -- and they then edited and corrupted the Gospels in order to make them reflect their pagan mindset (see ) -- the whole foundation of the Gospels became altered and corrupted -- which rendered them spiritually impotent.  

The Gentiles were Mithraic in their thinking -- and the foundation of Mithraic thought was based upon a savior who would save the people from Original Sin.  But when rightly understood, the doctrine of Original Sin has virtually nothing in common with the Original Gospel Teachings -- and this was proven with the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls which laid bare the startling facts.  And while the congregation of believers have been largely kept in the dark, the biblical scholars understood this fact – and this is demonstrated in the words of A. Powell Davies: “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).   Worse yet, Edmund Wilson, an expert who worked on the Dead Sea Scrolls further raised the question as to what difference it makes if “Jesus... had been trained in the discipline and imbued with the thought of a certain Jewish sect, and that he had learned from it the role that he afterwards lived...” (The Scrolls From The Dead Sea).  To the uninformed and unknowing believer, it made all the difference in the world!   And when Prof. John Allegro was quoted as saying that what has been revealed in the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls is a great amount of overwhelming evidence that “...may upset a great many basic teachings of the Christian Church.   This in turn would greatly upset many Christian Theologians and believers.   The heart of the matter is, in fact, the source and originality of Christian doctrine” (August 1966 issue of Harpers Magazine).   What all the many recent archaeological discoveries have confirmed and demonstrated is that Prof. Allegro was correct in his assertion that our modern-day understanding of the source and originality of Christian doctrine” is defective.   Why?   Because neither the original teachings or the corrupted scriptures simply does not support the tenets and structure of an organized dogmatic church as we have today.   In the words of Prof. Elaine Pagles, in her book, The Gnostic Gospels:  It is the winners who write history - their way..." 

Biblical scholars basically told the people the truth, but the truth was and remains unacceptable to the multitude of Churches.  Quoting from Examination of Modern NT Text Criticism: "Where history records that true sacred text survived this assault and is preserved in the traditional text, Westcott and Hort counter that the whole church participated in a conspiracy to fabricate a blended (and therefore corrupted) text. Westcott and Hort must not have believed the traditional Christian church to be genuine, but a sham. This thesis is supported by the biographies of Westcott and Hort. When J. F. D. Maurice was accused of false doctrine, Westcott commented that Orthodox Christians are like a new Islam persecuting a revival of the true Christians."  Why can the adoption of the corrupted scriptures be portrayed as "...a conspiracy to fabricate a blended (and therefore corrupted) text"?   Because the Roman Emperor Constantine orchestrated a massive adoption of Christianity as the Universal Religion of the Empire -- which brought about the massive conversion of Mithraic pagans into the Roman Church.   But in its foundation, it was the Gospels that were converted to Mithracism.  In the new religion, Jesus was portrayed as the latest incarnation of the Mithraic sun-god that was born on December 25 -- which is the day when the sun begins to move northward from the southern hemisphere.  Constantine took the most corrupt New Testament scriptures and further edited and corrupted them to make them support the dogma of Mithraism which represented the common beliefs of the people.  The original Ebionite Nazirene disciples and followers of Jesus were condemned as heretics -- portrayed as "too Jewish" to understand the meaning of the Gospel -- i.e., “…rejected from one religion as apostates, and from the other as heretics” (Gibbon: Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, v.1, p.416).    Further, the Spiritual (Gentile) Christians who understood the important purpose of the scriptures as a catalyst to develop the mind and enable the seeker/believer to begin to receive the Divine Manna of the Kingdom, were condemned as Gnostic heretics -- hunted down, their scriptures destroyed and those who did not embrace the religion of the emperor, were put to death.   Resulting in the fact that the whole foundation of the modern Church which is based upon Original Sin, has been imported from the Mithraic based teachings of the Iranian prophet Mani, in order to explain and fill the great void that the Church suppression of important teachings on the pre-existent soul created (see Original Sin @ ).   Thereby creating a pagan foundation to the Church that has rendered Christianity spiritually impotent.  Further quoting from Examination of Modern NT Text Criticism: "Westcott and Hort must have believed that what historians recorded as a defense against heretics was in reality a suppression of the true church. They believed that what the historians recorded as heretically corrupted texts were closer to the true autographs."  And this statement is true beyond the comprehension of the modern believer.    The more pure the copy of the Gospels, the more offensive it was from the perspective of the dogma and religion of the emperor.

Like the modern Christian, Mithraism believed in a Savior who freed them from Original Sin and provided them salvation.  In contradistinction, the Gospel is based upon the Journey of the Soul that evolves to Wholeness and Completion over the course of many lifetimes (see Wholeness of Mind & Being ).  And when the question is posed: Did the Jews in the first century believe in the pre-existent soul? Meaning, did your Soul exist prior to your birth into this present life. The Hastings-Scribner Dictionary Of The Bible (New York, 1903. Bk 4, p. 63) "To affirm that Jews in Christ's time did not believe in pre-existence is simply incorrect". And that the journey of the Soul over the course of many lives was an important element of discussion between Jesus and his disciples. In view of the fact that the Gospel teachings evolved out of the Essenes (see The Essene Foundation Of Judaism And Christianity ), the witness of Josephus who was a contemporary of the man Jesus who lived among the Essenes stated that the Essenes “…resigned up their souls with great alacrity, as expecting to receive them again. For their doctrine is this, that bodies are corruptible, and that the matter they are made of is not permanent; but that the souls are immortal, and continue for ever; and that they came out of the most subtle air, and are united to their bodies as to prisons, into which they are drawn by a certain natural enticement; but that when they are set free from the bonds of flesh, they then, as released from a long bondage, rejoice and mount upward...”. Why did the Essenes believe that their Souls are Immortal and can be united to many physical bodies across the span of many lifetimes of Soul-Development? Because their foundational mindset and lifestyle opened their eyes and minds to their Soul's Higher Reality that organic "natural" man is blind to. 

Turning to the historian, this ultra important element to the equation of life is made reference to by Edward Gibbon in the footnote regarding the question of the disciples at John 9:2: "The disciples of Jesus were persuaded that a man might have sinned before he was born, (John, ix. 2,) and the Pharisees held the transmigration [reincarnation] of virtuous souls, (Joseph. de Bell. Judaico, l. ii. c. 7;) and a modern Rabbi is modestly assured, that Hermes, Pythagoras, Plato, etc., derived their metaphysics from his illustrious countrymen" (Gibbon; Decline & Fall) 

Quoting from
Soul-Evolution - Reincarnation And Soul-Development : "Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, saying, 'Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?'" (John 9:1-2).  A reality that the modern Christians does not at all understand it the fact that the Gospels portray three reasons for people being born blind from birth -- i.e., (1) the sins committed in the Soul's previous lives; (2) the sins committed by the parents; (3) and the inherent blindness as a condition of organic "natural" man -- as personified in the words: "I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the... glorious inheritance in the saints" (Eph 1:18).  And it is this all-consuming blindness that plagues both Christians and all or mankind today.   

Why is Organic Man born blind?  In the parable of the prodigal son, mankind is presently dwelling in what is personified as the Far Country -- and having squandered away your inheritance on "riotous living", you presently dwell under the control of the of the Citizen or Consciousness of the earth -- unable to recall when you dwelt in the Kingdom with your Heavenly Father -- and having squandered away your inheritance on "riotous living", you aimlessly wander in this, the Far Country, as a victim of Spiritual Amnesia who is unable to recall your divine origin.   And as a victim of Spiritual Amnesia, you have been struck with blindness due to one or more of the three inherent human conditions.   What is the cause of this inherent human condition of blindness?  The answer is lack of Wholeness -- as stated in the Gospel account of Jesus in the words: "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17).  Which means that the Gospels were created in order to restore the amnesic and blind person you are in this world, to a condition of Wholeness that restores your True Self.

When you intervene in the life of a person struck with amnesia, you don't attempt to reprogram them -- but rather, you present to them various catalysts that connect with their inner self in order to restore the memory of their former self (see The Gospels Embody The Principles Of Anamnesis ).  And when rightly understood, this restoral of the True Self is the primary purpose of the Gospels.  To read the scriptures as if they were historical accounts, would be to program the person's thinking.   In contradistinction, to present to the reader a universal set of allegorical symbols and parabolic accounts that possess the ability to act as catalysts which connect the person you are in this world with your forgotten True Self, has the capacity to restore the memory of the lost, wandering, blind prodigal son who has been afflicted with amnesia -- and no longer able to recall their True Self.  And to bring about this intervention in the life of the lost prodigal son/daughter, the allegorical and parabolic scriptural accounts are composed with a seemingly historical facade that conveys important elementary concepts that are intermixed in the allegorical accounts and symbolism to create the proper foundation to bring about the restoration of their forgotten True Self.   The purpose of the scriptures is therefore not to teach you -- but rather, to restore you to the True Being that you are.  

In the recognition of the quasi-historical facade of the literal text of the scriptures, Paul portrayed the historical interpretation of the scriptures as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14).  Why would Paul portray the scriptures in this manner?  Because the literal accounts are part of the quasi-historical facade that serves as a cover for the spiritual meaning that lies, layer upon layer, beneath the garb of the written text.  And in recognition of the elementary teachings of the literal text, Paul portrayed the teachings of Jesus and him crucified as the "milk" intended for immature believers who he portrayed as "babes in Christ" -- i.e., "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.  I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3 NKJ) -- which "milk" the Church Father Origen portrays the physical resurrection as being designed  "...for the simpleminded and for the ears of the common crowd who are led on to live better lives by their belief.”  The fact that being a baptized and confirmed Christian did not open the mind and the eyes to the higher spiritual truths of the Gospel -- as in the statement of Paul: "I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the... riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints" (Eph 1:18).  And because of the people's inherent human blindness that limited their perceptive-understanding, Jesus could only speak to the people in the enigma of parables: "And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it. But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples" (Mark 4:33-34) -- even saying to 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).  Why were the people "...ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding”?  Because the undeveloped organic human condition causes them to be born blind to their own higher Soul and Spiritual Reality.

It is impossible for the modern Christian to use the Gospels as the Key of Knowledge ( ) and by embracing the allegorical catalysts, overcome their spiritual amnesia and restore their distant memory when as the prodigal sons/daughters they dwelt in the Kingdom prior to (in the words of the Essenes) they became "...united to their bodies as to prisons".  And because the modern Christians cling to the tenets of Mithracism and continue to abandon the First Principles of the Gospel Teachings, they have built upon a gravely flawed foundation -- i.e., “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash” (Matt 7:24-27). 

For Seventeen Hundred years the Truth pertaining to the Foundation of the Gospels was outlawed.  When the  Italian Dominican friar Giordano Bruno told the people that "The soul is not the body and it may be in one body or in another, and pass from body to body" -- and that at the core of our mind is the Source of all Truth and Light that can be tapped into by any of the prodigal sons/daughters who sincerely seek the Truth and TheWay -- i.e., in the words of Bruno: "Within every man there is a soul-flame, kindled at the sun of thought, which lends us wings whereby we may approach the sun of knowledge."  And that the purpose of the Gospels is to enable the seeker to receive from this Inner Source of Light and Knowledge the Divine Manna of the Kingdom -- the priest, Giordano Bruno, was burnt at the stake by the Church for the crime of telling the Christians the Truth -- revealing to believers the Sacred Knowledge that was outlawed and condemned by the Church.  And because the Christian world continues to reject the original Foundation of the Gospel Teachings -- even when the facts and the truth has been revealed and set before them -- in their rejection of the Original Teachings they continue to remain consigned to a spiritual diaspora of abject ignorance.
