The Church -- Is It The Spawn Of The Devil?

I was asked the questions:  If the Bible is not a history book, and Abraham is an allegory (Galatians 4:22-24), meaning he is a fictional person, not historical, which makes his descendants also fictional people, why would Jesus and the 12 disciples (symbolic of the 12 zodiac signs; 12 cranial nerves, etc,) be any different? Why would Jesus and James be historical people when most of the other Bible characters are not? Jesus made it clear that it is not his cross that saves anyone, so it is not necessary for him to have ever existed. (Matthew 16:13-28). Christians have made an absolute mess of this world because they changed a spiritual book into a literal and/or historical book, which only leads to mental and spiritual insanity.

The answer: Fiction means that the account is made up and is basically a meaningless story. If I write that the author's of the scriptures used a semi-historical facade to present important mental and spiritual facts and realities, that would not be the same as a fictional account.  The pre-Nicene Church Father Origen portrayed this reality of the scriptures where it is written: “Scripture contains an unhistorical element in-woven with the history, in order that the worthlessness of the latter may drive us to seek the spiritual meaning” (Origen quoted under Origen Adamntius; The Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics). With the exception of lessons in behavior, whatever is historical is basically worthless to bring about the process of transformative mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening to bring about the next stage of birth -- which is the objective of all genuine religions. Origen further explained in De Principiis that: “Where the word found that things done according to the history could be adapted to these mystical senses, he made use of them concealing from the multitude the deeper meaning; but where in the narrative of the development of super-sensual things, there did not follow the performance of those certain events which were already indicated by the mystical meaning, the scripture interwove in the history the account of some event that did not take place, sometimes what could not have happened; sometimes what could but did not.” So, in creating the quasi-historical facade, there are "...some event that did not take place, sometimes what could not have happened; sometimes what could but did not.”

Didn't Moses Maimonedes, one of the most respected of Jewish theologians, historian, and Talmudist, say the same exact thing as Origen when he writes about the nature of scripture: “Every time that you find in our books a tale the reality of which seems impossible, a story which is repugnant to both reason and common sense, then be sure that the tale contains a profound allegory veiling a deeply mysterious truth; and the greater the absurdity of the letter, the deeper the wisdom of the spirit”. So, Moses Maimonedes states that many accounts in the scriptures are so absurd that they are  "repugnant to both reason and common sense" -- which also means that they are not historical accounts.  In like manner, the Church historian Eusebius who writes of the doctrines conceived by the early Christians Papias and Irenaeus: “Papias reproduces other stories communicated to him by word of mouth, together with some otherwise unknown parables and teachings of the Saviour, and other things of a more allegorical character. He says that 'after the resurrection of the dead there will be a period of a thousand years when Christ's kingdom will be set up on this earth in material form'. I suppose he got these notions by misinterpreting the apostolic accounts and failing to grasp what they said in mystic and symbolic language. For he seems to have been a man of very small intelligence, to judge from his books..." (Eusebius, Hist Eccl., Book III, 39.11). And Eusebius also stated that “Many were led astray by reading the allegorical contents of the scriptures literally in the method of the Pharisees and Sadducees.”

Was there an historical man Jesus? Yes there was. But the historical account is "worthless" if you read the scriptures in the manner of the Pharisees and Sadducees as the Christian does. So why? You ask? Are the scriptures composed in this manner? Let me quote from the expert who authored the original core Gospel (see The Process of Re-Engineering Beliefs, Myths & Folklore ):

Development beyond the natural limits of organic human consciousness, requires a balance and union of opposites within the mind of the person -- i.e., Linear and Intuitive, earthly and heavenly, inner and outer -- as expressed in the statement in the Gospel of Thomas as to when the Kingdom would come within the mind of the INDIVIDUAL seeker: "Jesus said to them, When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; ...then will you enter the kingdom." Therefore, in order to bring about the mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening of the mind of the person beyond organic human limitations, it is imperative to work within the framework of that person's existing beliefs. And from an infant mind-full perspective, it is this working within the person's existing framework of mind that creates the final product of re-engineered myths and folklore containing a series of symbols and catalysts that connects their normal organic consciousness with both a higher level of consciousness that exists within all of mankind, and ultimately connects the person to an Inner Source of Knowledge and Truth that exceeds all the cumulative knowledge of mankind throughout all the ages that mankind has walked the face of the earth (see The One Teacher ). Unless the person brings about the interaction of opposites within the mind -- i.e., male/linear with female/intuitive, upper heavenly with lower earthly and inner and outer is brought about -- it will remain impossible to evolve the mind of the person beyond what can be portrayed as organic human consciousness (see Animal-Soul ). Teaching the person new information, is little more than traditional linear rote programming that further alienates them from their Inner Source of Mind and Being. In order to evolve the mind of the person beyond the limits of organic human consciousness, you must work within the framework of their existing beliefs and foundational mindset -- re-engineering their existing beliefs with symbols and catalysts that Intuitively connect the Inner and the Outer.

And quoting a little further down on the page: The followers of Jesus were commanded to have One Teacher (see ) -- i.e., "But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have One Teacher, and you are all brethren" (Matt 23:8). And this is why the Apostle Peter in the Homilies of his disciple Clement is quoted as commanding that, "...when the law of God (scriptures) is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind" -- not to seek an interpretation of the scriptures from any worldly source as seen in the words "...For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without". Jesus taught that there is only one Source of Truth, and the disciple/seeker must learn directly from that One Teacher -- and anyone who teaches a doctrine of belief based upon a human interpretation of the scriptures, is a sinner who has been turned out of TheWay (see The Condemnation Of Sects And Divisions ). Further, anyone who attempts to teach another person the meaning and interpretation of the scriptures, is a minister and servant of the Anti-Christ. Why? Because when you teach the interpretative-meaning of the scriptures as is done in many Bible study groups, you negate the embedded symbols, and inhibit the catalysts that are designed to overcome the person's Spiritual Amnesia -- thereby defeating the very purpose of the scriptures. Moreover, by undermining the purpose of the embedded symbols and catalysts when you teach a person the meaning of the scriptures, you are inhibiting that person from connecting with the Inner Source of Knowledge within them, which is one of the primary objectives of the New Covenant teachings. When Christians attempt to teach other Christians the interpretative-meaning of the scriptures -- holding bible study to teach the meaning -- using commentaries that present "...a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without" -- they are not only negating the purpose and objective of the scriptures -- but they are inflicting grave harm on their fellow Christians.

When you teach someone -- or they read something -- then you are programming their Linear spheres of mind. On the other hand, the scriptures utilize allegorical catalysts that connect the person they are in this world, with their Inner Self and the Indwelling Teacher. If the scriptures are read as historical accounts, then you have thrown away the Key of Knowledge in the manner of the Pharisees of whom Jesus portrayed as blind guides who were the "spawn of the devil" -- i.e., "Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word." As to why the Jews could not understand the spiritual teachings and concepts, Jesus explained: "You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out his desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, refusing to uphold the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, because he is a liar and the father of lies" (John 8:43-44). Quoting from Christianity - The Devil's Spawn : Their beliefs and doctrines which they taught and maintained, locked their thinking into a very carnal and low intellectual level of thinking that inhibited the people from making any progress in their development. Because as "blind guides", they threw away what Jesus portrayed as the Key of Knowledge (see The Application Of The Key Of Knowledge  ) -- just as the Christians do today. Which provokes the question: If the leaders of the Jews were incapable of understanding the teachings of Jesus -- i.e., "you not understand what I say" -- and were portrayed as the "spawn of the Devil" because they threw away the Key of Knowledge, then we must pose the question: If the modern Christian also throws away what Jesus portrayed as the Key of Knowledge, then aren't they also the "spawn of the Devil"?

When you interpret the scriptures historically -- or from a linear mindset -- then you negate and undermine the embedded allegorical catalysts that connect man's outer mind with the inner, thereby flat-lining all mental and spiritual development beyond organic consciousness.
