Are Christians Really Christian?

 Are Christians Really Christian? The Test!!!

The author of the meme states that the reader should "Search for answers -- be skeptical and think with reason".  The answer: A Christian is not a person who believes.  A Christian is a person who picks up their own cross and travails in TheWay -- living the necessary spiritual lifestyle -- raising their children to insure spiritual success -- a person who rejects the doctrines of the teachers and authorities of this world -- and seeks the Divine Manna of the Kingdom that can only be received and revealed to them directly from the Indwelling Logos/Mind of God (see The One Teacher  ).  Which means that those who claim to be Christian, often are not. 

The Test: The vast majority of people who call themselves Christian, are lukewarm in their mindset and lifestyle.  What did Jesus say:  "And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more" (Luke 12:47-48). Thus, the modern Christian simply has no means to understand why and how the lukewarm believer will be beaten with the stripes of greater judgment, than the unbeliever. So what is the fate of those who "...did commit things worthy of stripes" -- but they shall clearly receive far less stripes than those who knew the masters will, but did not properly prepare themselves? What this means is that the unbeliever who lives a life of sin, will receive far less judgment than the believer who has called upon the name of the Lord and has not lived in strict accord with the original Gospel teachings of those who the Church declared to be heretics (see The Law Of The Gospels ).  And therein lies the crux of the problem: The foregoing is is in opposition to everything that modern Christians believe. 

If a Christian fulfills the original Gospel teachings, then they would have no difficulty explaining why the common sinners will receive less judgment and stripes than the lukewarm believing baptized Christians.  A genuine Christian would understand why the Apostle Peter warned the lukewarm believer that if they turn back to the lifestyle of this world, that it would have been better for them never to have heard TheWay of righteousness -- i.e.,   "If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning. It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them. Of them the proverbs are true: A dog returns to its vomit, and, A sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud" (2 Pet 2:20-22).  Where the modern Church promotes the doctrine that they are saved by Grace regardless of the manner in which they live their lives, Peter not only states that this man-made doctrine is in grave error, but correctly states that: "It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them."  Paul confirms this statement of Peter with respect to complacent Christians receiving the greater judgment when he warned that if the believer knowingly sins after embracing the Gospel teachings, that there is no longer the hope of salvation -- i.e., "For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who ...then commit apostasy, since they crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt.. For if we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries." (Heb 6:4-6;10:26-27 RSV). Which provokes the question that a genuine Christian could answer: How can those who have never known the teachings of Christ, be better off than those who having heard, are complacent towards those teachings? 

The answer is very simple: When the fourth century Church removed the essential Gospel teachings on the pre-existent Soul that evolves to Wholeness and Perfection over the course of many lives (see The Pre-Nicene Position Of The Church On Reincarnation  ), the Christians could no longer understand who they -- as "invited guests" to TheCall to the Wedding Banquet (see ) -- would receive far greater judgment than the unbelievers who were not "invited guests". 

Without living the necessary mindset and lifestyle, it will remain impossible for the Christian to understand the spiritual meaning of the scriptures.  It is why Jesus could not speak openly about the Mysteries of God when he stated: "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). The key statement is in the words "as they were able to hear it" -- meaning that the mindset and lifestyle of each person is the determining factor with respect to their level of their development and their ability to comprehend the Higher Mysteries of the Soul and the Kingdom.  And why it was stated only to a select few: “Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand” (Mark 4:11-12). The organic mind of man and woman is earthly and undeveloped. Which is why Paul portrayed the literal text of the  Gospel message of the scriptures as "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). Why can't organic "natural" man comprehend the spiritual meaning of the scriptures or the meaning of the Gospel?  Which is why Paul warned: “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:14). The NLT translation reads: "But people who aren’t spiritual can’t receive these truths from God’s Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can’t understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means". What is the difference between a Christian of a "natural" mindset, and one who is "spiritual"? Thus, it is imperative to ask the question: What is the "natural man"? The condition of mankind that Paul is making reference to, would just as well be portrayed as "organic" -- or, of the physical body. The "natural man" , is the "organic" human being. Therefore, mere belief in the historical man Jesus does not in any way transform the person from the "natural man", and change his "frequency and vibration" of mind into a "spiritual man". that is capable of being mentally nourished by the "solid food" or higher spiritual meaning of the Gospel that requires "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” -- which is not a condition of mind that is the result of faith and belief in the historical man Jesus.

Unless you embrace the heresy of the followers who walked daily and were taught directly by Jesus with respect to fulfilling the Law within their own mind and being (see The Law Of The Gospels ), then you are not a genuinely committed believer.
