Reply To The Daily Beast: Everyone’s Favorite Gospel Is a Forgery

The Daily Beast is basically a political news website that has proven it can't even begin to grasp the purpose of the Gospels and the higher reality of the soul.   In an article entitled: Everyone's Favorite Gospel is a Forgery, author Candida Moss demonstrates why a political news site is incapable of comprehending matters of a spiritual reality and nature.  Opening her article Ms. Moss writes: "New research is poised to overturn much of what we know about everyone’s favorite biography of Jesus."  Which statement in and of itself is proof of why a political news site should not publish articles they know nothing about. 

While it is true that there are those within the Church who look upon the Gospels as historical accounts on the life of the historical man Jesus, their ignorance of the purpose and objective of the Gospels is their adherence to the dogma of 4th century pagan Rome when the emperor Constantine converted the Jesus of the Gospels into the latest incarnation of the Mithraic sun-god (see Christ Before Jesus ).  And it was in that time-frame that the newly formed Church of Constantine recreated the Gospels into historical accounts that like the Jews, threw away the Key of Knowledge (see ).   In fact, the article states: "By contrast, the Gospel of John’s most disturbing and anti-Semitic statements are placed on the lips of Jesus. When Jesus calls 'the Jews' the 'sons of their father the Devil' modern readers should recoil in horror (John 8:40-48). Verses like this one nurtured, if not spawned, violence and anti-Semitism from the medieval period until the present. Perhaps it’s better for everyone if Jesus never said this."

While the Gospels are not historical accounts, the question must be posed as to why the author would portray Jesus as stating such a charge against the Jews?  Fundamentally, when the spiritual purpose and meaning of the Gospels are understood in their original context (see The Cosmology Of The Gospels ), not only the Jews but modern Christians as well who throw away the Key of Knowledge, are equally the spawn or offspring of what would constitute the Devil   When I state that the Gospels are not historical accounts -- but rather, allegorically accounts of the Mind -- this means that whoever attempts to interpret the scriptures outwardly and/or historically, would in like manner throw away the Key of Knowledge as those portrayed spiritually as the "spawn of the Devil".   What this means is that the vast majority of Evangelical Christians are merely another type of Jew by a different name.   When you properly utilize the scriptures for their original intended purpose by turning them within your own Mind and Being (see The Application Of The Key Of Knowledge ), then the body and mind begins the process of transformation into the Final Temple that provides the person with access into the Inner Kingdom.  Thus, anyone who attempts to interpret these sacred writings externally, is throwing away the Key of Knowledge in the manner of the Jews.

While the Christians, like the Jews before them, look for the Kingdom to come outwardly upon the earth, the Gospel itself states that the Kingdom will never come upon the earth, because it is within you -- and it is therein that you must seek it: "And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God comes not with observation: Neither shall they say, See here! or, see there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you" (Luke 17:20-21). If the words of Jesus are true -- and the Kingdom is within you -- then the question that Christians should be asking, is how must the Kingdom be entered? The answer is the proper application of the Key of Knowledge by turning the scriptures within your own mind and being -- i.e., "How terrible it will be for you experts in religious law! For you hide the key to knowledge from the people. You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves, and you prevent others from entering" (Luke 11:52). Thus, in understanding these words spoken to the Jews, the questions must be asked: How did the Pharisees and Jewish authorities "...hide the key to knowledge from the people"? Why did Jesus condemn the leaders of the Jews for failing to enter the Kingdom themselves? -- i.e., "...You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves"! And how did the religious leaders of the Jews "...prevent others from entering?" In further clarification, the TEV version of the this verse states: “How terrible for you teachers of the Law! You have kept the key that opens the door to the house of knowledge; you yourselves will not go in, and you stop those who are trying to go in!” (Luke 11:52 TEV). Thus, the scriptures when properly used, have the ability to "open the [inner] door to the House of Knowledge" -- and their outward interpretations whereby they seek the Kingdom to come outwardly (see The End Times - Armageddon/Rapture - The Coming Of The Kingdom ), inhibits believers from "going in [the Hose of Knowledge]" -- and by teaching the people their outward/historical interpretations, they inhibited the community of believers from entering the Hose of Knowledge.

That the primary objective of the Gospel is to prepare and enable the seeker/disciple to enter the Kingdom, is further demonstrated in Jesus' condemnation of the blind religious leaders as seen in the words: "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to" (Matt 23:13). Which means that the Kingdom of God is not something that will come if we wait for it -- but rather, it is a reality which man must seek and find -- within himself.

In the Bible translation known as The Message, the above reality of Jesus' words with respect to the usage of the Key of Knowledge is portrayed in true clarity. In this translation when Jesus turned to the Jews who had claimed to believe in him and said: "If you stick with this, living out what I tell you, you are my disciples for sure. Then you will experience for yourselves the truth, and the truth will free you" (John 8:31-32 TheMessage) -- and once again, neither Christian or Jew who have thrown away the Key of Knowledge can understand these words which are of the utmost importance. Jesus didn't say that they would believe the truth -- or that they would discern what they believed would be dogmatic truth out of the scriptures or some book written by other men -- but rather, Jesus conveyed to them that if they follow in TheWay, that they "...will experience for yourselves the truth, ...and it is this SELF-EXPERIENCED TRUTH that...will free you" from the error and ignorance that consumes the people of this world -- and especially the blind guides who portray themselves as rabbis, teachers, clergy, religious leaders and authorities.

Taking the above one step further, I fully realize that many Bible translations simply refuse to interpret Luke 17:21 correctly. In analysis of this great biblical controversy, Robertson’s Word Pictures of the New Testament writes: “What Jesus says to the Pharisees is that they, as others, are to look for the kingdom of God within themselves, not in outward displays and supernatural manifestations. It is not a localized display ‘Here’ or ‘There.’ It is in this sense that in Luke 11:20 Jesus spoke of the kingdom of God as ‘come upon you,’ speaking to Pharisees”. The article then goes on to add that the only other instance of the Greek word “entos” being used in the New Testament, is at Matthew 23:26, where the Pharisees are told to clean “the inside of the cup”. Moreover, the Wescott and Hort Greek text, as well as most other authorities, render the translation of this word: “inside of you is”. Which means that the original teachings of TheWay was a system whereby the seeker/disciple takes the yoke of Messiah/Christ upon themselves -- picking up their own cross and travailing in TheWay -- which enables the disciple to enter through the "narrow gate" and dwell in the Kingdom, while still physically alive in the body -- overcoming the division of heaven and earth within the person -- i.e., the Lord commanded his followers to "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" (Matt 7:13-14 NIV). Because the Church threw away the Key of Knowledge, and adopted pagan dogmatic doctrines of belief, the Christian world sits idly complacent on the side of the "broad-way ...that leads to destruction" -- giving lip service and worshiping their brother, that they must themselves imitate, in order to enter into Life. And it was for this reason that the Adam Clark Commentary stated that if the original Gospel portrayal of the historical man Jesus was correct, that "...the whole Christian system is vain and baseless"!!! (see The Ten Words).
