Ebionite

The Ebionites were the Original Disciples of Jesus, who faithfully preserved his teachings of TheWay. They were Spiritual Israel, and could enter in and out of the Inner Kingdom. The Gentiles were too pagan and heathen to comprehend and embrace the teachings of Jesus, and the Church very quickly became corrupted and spiritually disenfranchised. This remains true to this very day.

Why Are There School Shootings?


The recent Newtown school shooting (see Shooting) of 20 young children and 6 women administrators has provoked many questions as to why such senseless events happen?   If there is a God, then why would God permit such atrocities to snuff out the lives of innocent children?   And while many clergy have provided the typical blind-faith variety of answers -- making light of the fact that the Bible states that every event that happens in the life of man has been ordained by the Hand of God.   Yet, these clergy remain without the ability to answer such questions, because of the great void which the dogma of Roman Emperors (see The Religion Of Emperors) has created.  Therefore, in addition to the great question of evil in the world, the Church is without the ability to answer the question: Do We Have Freewill?   Thus, with the anathema and suppression of important biblical teachings, Christians are hopelessly inept to understand the Natural Laws of this world -- remaining totally ignorant as to Why Bad Things Happen To Good People -- and especially the Conditions Of Birth that each person is born into (see Conditions of Birth - Life - Death).

In a previous article entitled Gov. Rich Snyder Saves The People Of Michigan, I portray anyone who supports the Secular Progressives, the Unions and Democrat Party, as being shackled by the sin of infanticide.    But it is also true that those who escape the fate of being ripped out of the womb in an abortion -- and are actually born into this world -- must then contend with the Master Abortionist that severs the child from the reality of their soul in the public school environment.   That the lack of School Choice constitutes a mortal sin that causes the spiritual death of young children, is a reality that every American is held accountable for (see God's Indictment Of The Church).    And it is this reality that the American People who remain virtually ignorant of the workings and movements of the Natural laws in people's lives, have not yet come to terms with.  

In the same way that Rabbi Ovadia Yosefan, the former chief rabbi of Israel -- a religious scholar who was also the spiritual leader of the Shas party -- made the statement that no innocent Jews died in the Holocaust.  What Rabbi Yosefan said was that the 6 million Holocaust victims "...were reincarnations of the souls of sinners, people who transgressed and did all sorts of things that should not be done” (see Conditions of Birth - Life - Death).   And that unbeknown to most people, in the same way that there were souls born into this life to repay karmic debts incurred in their previous lives, there were also souls born into this life expressly to die in the personal sacrifice to stop Hitler.   And once the Laws of this world are understood, it is also true that there are souls being born into this life at the present time to stop the spiritual slaughter of innocent children who are sacrificed on the altar of the public school system which supports the Marxist Secular Progressive agenda (see Jim Wallis - Has This Man Sold Your Soul To The Devil?).   And because spiritually complacent Christians have ignored the mandates and requirements of the Original Teachings of Jesus (see TheLie.org), the Natural Laws can only bring about necessary change by forcing people to react to catastrophes such as the Newtown school shooting.

Man has freewill (see The Great Paradox Of Freewill).   And when mankind refuses to act and accommodate change when it has been presented to him, then the Natural Laws must shove him in the direction he is supposed to go and move in.   Each atrocity and negative action in the life of mankind, is usually followed by a positive action on the part of many people in the opposite direction.   Thus, the Newtown school shootings will force many parents to seek out an alternative school for their children -- even to the extent of homeschooling their children.   And in this respect, the children who perished at the hands of a deranged gunman, will have entered this life in a parallel sacrifice to those who were killed in halting such despots as Hitler -- except the innocent lives of these children were sacrificed so that other children will escape the spiritual death of the Master Abortionist who destroys the lives of the children in the nations public school system.

While this may seem harsh to the parents of these children, it remains true that many souls enter this world to become a sacrifice to set others free from despots and spiritual death.   Man's freewill must be preserved so he can learn and evolve through making proper choices with respect to the conditions that each person's life presents to them.   With good reason the Apostle Paul warns the Christian: "But now I am writing you that you must not associate with anyone who calls himself a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a slanderer, a drunkard or a swindler. With such a man do not even eat" (1 Cor 5:11 NIV - see All Who Call Upon The Name Of The Lord).  Yet, Christians not only ignore this requirement set forth by Paul and sit at the table with the morally unclean -- but they send their children to schools where impressionable young minds are indoctrinated into a spiritually bankrupt mindset and lifestyle.   And thus, in the same way that souls have entered this world to be sacrificed to halt the rule of despots throughout man's history, souls are entering this world to sacrifice themselves on the alter of the unclean and morally bankrupt public schools, so that other children might escape the spiritual death that is being imposed upon them by a complacent Church which refuses to do what is right.

Gov. Rick Snyder Saves The People Of Michigan


When Gov. Rick Snyder brought CHOICE to the people of Michigan with the new law which permits a person to work and not be part of the union political machine, he in effect released them from the yoke of bondage that shackles them to a future of suffering and profound ignorance.   Does the foregoing represent a radical statement?   Not at all.   A statement of fact can never be radical.   If you were playing Russian Roulette with a loaded gun and you were about to point the barrel at your head and pull the trigger -- would it be a radical statement to warn you that there is a good chance that you are about to kill yourself?  If you were about to step into a serpent lair where poisonous vipers were lurking in the shadows of the darkness, would it be radical to sound a warning?

If you are basing your ideas of life on the dogmatic opium of Roman Emperors which is promoted by many mainline churches today, then I can easily demonstrate in TheLie.org, that the whole foundation and construct of your system of doctrinal beliefs is nothing more than a bogus fraud.    You are accountable for your actions.   And every person is presented with a series of tests in their life, that molds and creates their future.   And as attested to by the Apostles Peter and Paul in the  TheLie.org, not only are Christians held accountable for their actions -- but their fate can and often is worse off than the fate of the unbelievers.  And if you claim to believe without doing as Jesus and the Gospel commands, then you are convicted by your own counterfeit statement of belief -- or, as explored at the heading, The Folly Of Salvation Of Faith Alone: "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).

The unions are a tool of the Democrat Party -- and the Democrat Party is the Svengali in sheep's attire.   Why?   In the same way that a sexual pervert attempts to lure children into his car with the promise of candy, the Democrat Party lures misguided Christians into its fold, so that these naive people will sell their soul to the Devil for government handouts that enslave and shackle the gullible who are seduced into lives of spiritual depravity and excess.

Examine the facts!  The Democrat Party promotes the murder of the unborn.  Ask yourself this question: Would my Brother Jesus escort a woman into an abortion clinic to murder her child? (see Alverda King: Abortion Is The New Civil Rights Cause).  As stated in the first century statement of Christian beliefs known as the Didache at 5:2 where it states: "The Way of Death is filled with people who are...murderers of children and abortionists of God's creatures." In the Epistle of Barnabas who was a co-worker and companion of the Apostle Paul, it is written: "You shall not kill either the fetus by abortion or the new born"  

If the mainstream of Christians were not seduced and intoxicated with the baneful nectar of dogmatic death, they would recognize the infanticide of young children that is being promoted in the nations government public schools -- where they are programmed into a culture of moral and spiritual depravity.   To the demise of impressionable minds that lack the maturity to know right from wrong, the Democrat Party opposes vouchers and school choice (see God's Indictment Of The Church).    And as can be seen in the article, The Devil And Maxine Waters - A Story Of Satanic Seduction, the whole Democrat agenda of government give-aways, are designed to enslave and make the people subjects of the state.
What the Michigan legislature and governor accomplished, was to undo the failing of the judiciary which is charged with the responsibility of insuring the people's basic God-Given Rights.   Constitutionally, the government has no power to force the individual into a role that is against, and at variance, with their conscience, freewill and practice of religion.   For the government to force the individual to monetarily support unions, which themselves promote the diabolical platform of the Democrat Party, represents an abject betrayal of Constitutional Principles.   Infanticide simply has no place in the religious teachings of Jesus -- and the failure of school choice is merely the murder of the young while the child is an infant.   What does Jesus say?  "It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones" (Luke 17:2 KJV).  

What does Paul state is the obligation of those who claim to believe?  "Beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God" (2 Cor 7:1).   This is impossible for those who endorse infanticide by supporting in any manner, those who promote both abortion and the the denial of School Choice.   When it is recognized that the Apostle of faith warned the Christians not to have anything to do with sinners and the sexually immoral -- and not even to sit at the same table and dine with them (see The Folly Of Social Justice) -- then the person who claims with their lips to be a believer, who fails to demand School Choice, is themselves an abomination and apostate to the Kingdom!
        

Why Can't I Rember My Past Lives?


In a recent forum discussion (see Nazirene Disciple Forum) I was asked the question as to why most people don't remember their past lives.   My answer that I will present in the below, will be in the form of two different responses to the question?   As a preface to my below explanation, it is important for the reader to be cognizant of the fact that the biblical authors warned that it is virtually impossible for the mind of "natural" organic man to comprehend his own higher soul and spiritual reality -- as detailed in the Prologue Of The Key Of Knowledge -- and to their own spiritual undoing, Christians perpetually ignore this warning.    Secondly, it is easily demonstrated that while Jesus taught the reality of the pre-existent soul that evolves to perfection over the course of many lifetimes (see Christian Reincarnation), he did not teach reincarnation from an Eastern or New Age perspective.   That a Roman Emperor outlawed the teachings on the pre-existent soul (see Outlawed) -- literally forcing the Church to accept his decree -- does not in any manner negate the Truth.   But what it does do with respect to the search for Truth within the body of Christian believers, is render them spiritually impotent.   Thirdly, the person you are in this world is not your true self (see The Divine Counterpart) -- but rather, an embryonic image of your higher soul-self that has been generated into the body you are presently using as a vehicle in this world with the objective of mental and spiritual developmental evolution -- as presented at SoulSelf.org .   Now, in answer to the question?

Many people are not supposed to see the past lives that their higher soul-self has lived -- lives they have no memory of, because they came into existence at conception in this present life (see Reincarnation - A Counterfeit Doctrine).   What is even more important is to understand why approximately 20% of the people are born with the ability to recall the past lives that their soul-self has lived -- why others can develop the ability -- why some people can easily be regressed into recalling these past lives -- and while some simply do not have the ability -- and why others are even blocked from seeing them?   Contrary to the equal means the same philosophy of the Archons of Political Correctness, there is a very good reason why we are all not only born different -- but why we see the world from a multitude of opposite and often conflicting perceptions and understanding?   Thus, the question that is raised: If our souls have all lived a great multitude of previous lifetimes, then why can only a percentage of the population see these previous lifetimes?   
The folly of mankind which immerses him in the profound state of ignorance portrayed in the analogy of Plato's Cave, is his assumption that he is whole, complete, and his true self.   This ignorance of man's true self is in fact the foundation of his assertion that if there is a God, that God will accept him as he is -- regardless of the fact that the scriptures warn that the opposite is true.   After all, believers reason, if the person you are in his world is your  whole self, then how can man possibly be more than he already is?   Moreover, if God created man as he is, then God must approve of his creation. 
The ability to recall the past lives that our higher soul-self has lived, is drawn from the feminine intuitive spheres of mind (see Intuitive vs Linear) -- which when unbalanced and undeveloped, can be like opening Pandora's Box.   Thus the saying: Show me your strength, and I'll show you your weakness.   While the intuitive spheres of mind which in our linear driven culture is often undeveloped and even mentally atrophied, is able to perceive glimpses of truth that the linear is often blind to, the intuitive does not get a full picture -- and often the beginning, the end, and the greater impact of one's actions is beyond the perception of the intuitive.   Yet, even in its largely culturally suppressed and undeveloped state, it is still able to access nuggets of truth that is beyond the vision scope of the linear.

In order to develop a fuller picture, the intuitive must be both developed and brought into balance with the linear, and then the two must be evolved up into the higher spheres that are not naturally supported by the physical body-senses and organic physical mind.   And what this means from the perspective of those who cannot recall past lives, is that if such a person had the ability to tap into their intuitive and see their soul's previous lifetimes, they could not possess the linear attributes of mind that they presently do -- and thus, they would not be in a position to develop those linear attributes of mind -- or, take part in a union of opposites that would have the potential of developing the higher third-force.    Each of us is not only different -- possessing different strengths and abilities -- but these differences are extremely important for us to begin to understand, if we are to grasp the more enlightened perception of the life that we are living.
When our Constitutional Framers acknowledged The Laws Of Nature And Nature's God, one of the elements of Natural Law is seen in the fact that it is MUST manifest WHOLENESS!!! Holographically, the Laws of Nature must maintain balance across the spectrum of Mind that is manifest on a Cosmic scale (see The Enigma Of The Twelve - And The Tree Of Life).   Since each person as a one cell embryo can only represent one single point of consciousness within the pattern of mind as portrayed in the Tree of Life -- then all that each person sees and perceives throughout their lives, is from the perspective of that single point of consciousness.   If, then, you divide the Tree of Life across the spectrum of humanity in the outer world, then each person is representative of 1/144,000th of the whole.   And when you further divide this across gender lines, that makes each man or woman half of this apportionment.   And if you were an enlightened Spiritually Mature seeker who understood what is often portrayed as the Laws of Nature and Nature's God, then you would begin to grasp the reality that, BY DESIGN, there can never be unity in the outer world, because the Laws MUST maintain Wholeness -- and the primary cell that formed you as an embryo could only be imbued with 1/144,000th part of the Whole.   And since each of the twelve spheres of mind perceive and understand the world from a different and often opposite paradoxical perspective, then what you have is the embodiment of the Tower of Babel Syndrome that fragments the thinking and perception of all of mankind -- resulting in the great conflict of thought that we can easily observe in the world.   What makes you perceive and understand the world differently from others?   The vastly different perceptions are in fact hard-wired into each person's thinking -- each person possessing a piece of the enigmatic puzzle -- and together, making a whole.    
Without quoting it directly, one of the parables of the Kingdom is that of a merchant who searches and finds the Pearl of Great Price, and he goes and sells all his lesser pearls in order to purchase it.   But since the carnal mind of the readers fail to understand with any depth or fullness (see Prologue Of The Key Of Knowledge), they fail to recognize the fact that the key to acquiring the Pear of Great Price is to have collected a substantial number of lesser pearls that can then be sold in order to acquire the One Pearl.   And what this means is that each person possesses a lesser pearl -- i.e., a fragment of truth -- and by developing your power of empathy -- and then using the power of empathy in your interactions with your brothers and sisters as a type of catalyst to reflect their fragmented perception back to you -- you can then begin to expand your own mind, consciousness and being -- INWARDLY.

We can define empathy as the ability to suspend one's own self in the endeavor to project one's self into the life and thinking of another, in order to perceive and understand the world from their perspective.   And what this means is that while you may not agree with their perception of life because they are also representative of 1/144,000th of the whole, they do possess a fragment or lesser pearl that you must possess within yourself, in order begin to achieve Wholeness within your own self -- which is accomplished by expanding your own mind, consciousness and being (see Expansion And Heightening Of Mind) beyond natural physical organic limitations.   But herein lies the problem -- i.e., empathy only works when you are able to suspend judgment -- as detailed in the Gospel -- because judgment is partisan and parochial and is itself limited to a fragment of mind/whole.   Yet, while judgement is an extremely limiting factor, one of the elements that is absolutely necessary to the expansion of mind, is discernment.    I can discern the vision and perception of life through the eyes of a homosexual, a whore, a thief, a liberal or conservative, a person of a certain philosophical or theological persuasion, as well as every other fragmented variety of human condition.   By suspending judgment, and empathetically inserting myself into the conditions of my brothers and sisters, I can not only see from their perspective -- but I can then use that person as a catalyst to interact with that part of myself that is in harmony with that other person.   And each time I am able to do this, I am in effect expanding my own mind, consciousness and being.   That does not mean that I agree with their very limited and fragmented assessment of life -- but rather, that by empathetically projecting myself into their mind and thinking, and using them as a reflective catalyst, I can collect one of the lesser pearls within myself -- which eventually can be exchanged for the Pearl of Great Price that is beyond natural organic human conception, because of the limiting factor of the Natural Laws.  

Homosexuals claim that they were created homosexual -- and while many people may be in denial of this claim, it is fundamentally true (see Conditions Of Birth).  The question that should be asked is: Why has such a person been born homosexual in this present life?  In fact, modern science has about proven that each person is born hard-wired to the life that they are presently living.  A liberal, is a liberal, because his thinking is hard-wired to that manner of perception and thinking -- as is a conservative.   Ultra-liberal Alan Combs is incapable of seeing the world from the perspective of Right-wing Sean Hannity -- and their perceptive thinking is hard-wired to opposite spheres of mind.    Which one is right?   It is not a question of right or wrong, because they both possess an important fragmented piece of the enigmatic puzzle -- which when combined with many other fragmented pieces, creates the whole that is maintained across the spectrum of human thought by the Natural Laws that control our lives.  

The Gospel message tells us not to judge our brothers and sisters, because judgment is predicated on a perception of right and wrong.   Yet, the Gospel also requires a very high level of discernment.   If not even a sparrow can fall to the earth apart from the Will of God (see The Great Christian Quagmire) -- and each person is preordained and hard-wired to the life they are presently living -- then while ideological judgment is in and of itself the embodiment of evil, discernment and being extremely cognizant of the fact that choices have consequences that must be lived out, is a human reality that must be intimately embraced by those who aspire to arise to man's highest potential.   The fact that we are all different -- and to perceive and evolve the ability to understand the causal factors that hard-wire us to these often radically opposite differences -- is of the highest importance in overcoming our own natural limitations -- and ultimately acquiring the Pearl of Great Price.    
Contrary to the Marxist and Secular Progressive ideology of Social Justice, one of the more important elements of the Ten Commandments is not to desire what belongs to your neighbor.   Why?   Because each person was born under different Laws -- they are expressing their lives from the perspective of that fragmentary pearl that they received as their allotted inheritance in this life -- and the key is to develop what you have, without desiring that which has been bestowed upon your brother.   This world is God's Divine Schoolhouse -- each person's life is in accord with a syllabus and curriculum that was predetermined before they were even born into this life -- and by Divine Design, each person's lessons are in accord with the needs and requirements of the individual.   There is a reason why some people are born rich, while others are poor -- some are intelligent, while others are seemingly incapable of learning -- some are religious, while others are agnostic or an unbeliever.   Jewish mystics claim that the Jews who suffered under Hitler, were born into the life they lived (see The Chickens Come Home To Roost).  It is not an accident that Jeremiah Wright has embraced what is known as Black Liberation Theology.   Or, that he was Barack Obama's spiritual leader.   It was preordained that George W. Bush would be blamed for a financial meltdown that he did not cause.   That this meltdown would open the door to Barack Obama's presidency.

When you enroll in a course of study, the instructor does not teach the course in any manner of his choosing.   The math teacher does not teach science, history, English Literature, music or cooking.   In like manner, there is a language association in mathematics -- a different language in science -- in music, healing and medicine, as well as all other such courses of study.   In each course of study, there is a predetermined syllabus and curriculum that must be followed, in order to bring about certain results.   And in this respect, each person's life is a course of study -- and as such, is following a predetermined syllabus that is intended to bring about certain results.   In order to learn certain lessons, it is necessary for some people to be born poor.   Others to be born rich.   Medical science has already demonstrated that some people are born with the greater potential of an almost inconceivable number of addictions.   Some people are born virtuous, others not so, while still others become conscious of the need to develop virtue.   Einstein was born into the life of genus.   Mozart composed and performed at the age of five.   Da Vinci was born to be a painter.   Siddhārtha Gautama was born to be the Buddha, as was Jesus born to live the role that he fulfilled.   All the world is a stage -- a stage of learning -- and each person is born into the role that they are to play on the stage of life.  There are no accidents (see Conditions Of Birth), and each person is born with abilities in accord with the lessons of life they have been preordained to learn.   And when we apply this realty to a person's ability to see the previous lives that their higher soul-self has lived, then this ability would be contingent upon the individual requirements of the syllabus and curriculum of the life that the person is presently living -- natural abilities which each person is born into this life to develop into a strength and pearl.

What is important is to achieve your true potential -- and you accomplish this by developing the natural abilities you were imbued with when you entered this life.   The Pearl of Great Price is when you can see and understand from the perspective and Being of your higher Soul-Self who is the balance and cumulation of all the fragmented lives that your soul has lived (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image).   And while you can't at present simply jump to the soul-level of being and perceive reality from this higher enlightened perspective, you can begin to listen and develop the empathetic intuition necessary to begin to expand one's own mind, consciousness and being.    
In further reply I wrote the following addition to the above:

We are in this world to develop the necessary mental maturity to arise to a level of spiritual wholeness and completion of our true self -- i.e., our soul-self (see SoulSelf.org ).    Holographically, we follow the pattern -- and in the same way that our higher soul-self began as a mere spark of the Divine which was the offspring of Mother/Father God that was infused with the consciousness of the Logos (Mind of God), we begin our existence as a single-cell embryo from our mother/father which was infused with the consciousness of our higher soul-self.   So, in the Triune Pattern, the very fact that two-thirds of our initial make-up was comprised of earth-elements in the form of the sperm and ovum that spawned our body-vessel -- and our physical body was then built with elements from the earth which has a consciousness that is of the earth -- it can be said that while the consciousness that comprises our physical being has never lived before, it does have a connection in mind to our higher soul-self from which we inherited our Spiritual DNA.   And since our body-vessel is formed from the (animal) consciousness of the earth, we must refine, train-up and prevail over the consciousness of the body to manifest the true being that we are which is the soul-essence we inherited from our higher soul-self -- in much the same way that our soul-self inherited the attributes of the Logos (see http://TheThreeLies.com#Logos ) when it came into being at the Alpha of Time.     
In the parable of the Sower and the Seed, only those seeds that became implanted in the "good ground" were able to flourish and multiply one hundredfold in its process of growth and expansion.   Which means that your success in this life is contingent upon your purification and fertilization of the body-vessel and associated physical consciousness -- which will make the third-force seed-essence evolve and expand in accord with the Natural Laws of Creation.   When Paul preached the doctrine of salvation by faith, what he was affirming is the fact that if you embrace the teachings of the Gospel so as to create within yourself the environment of the
"good ground" as portrayed in the parable of the Sower and the Seed, then the Kingdom will come within you as you become transformed into what is allegorically portrayed as the Final Temple.   Since your higher soul-self which is the conscious cumulative manifestation of all the lives that it has ever lived (see http://SoulSelf.org ) -- and already knows more than anyone in this world could ever begin to teach you -- the process of mental growth and development is in the endeavor of making the body-vessel a fit environment for the higher soul-self to manifest -- and ultimately, the Logos which exists at the very core of your Being.   
What I am attempting to accomplish in this forum and on the associated web sites, is to remove the (mental) blockages from the environment of your body-vessel -- in much the same way that a farmer removes rocks, roots, weeds and other impurities from the soil -- which permits the seed-essence to expand and bloom.   Gurdjieff stated that the seed-essence of most people develops to about the age of four or five, before being flat-lined by the earth-consciousness of the body which he portrayed as a multitude of false-personalities.   Valentinus stated that nature-man who is ruled over by the earth-consciousness of man's lower nature which has formed his earthly personality, has no continuance beyond the grave -- and this is true, because your seed-essence which is an embryonic image of your higher soul-self, was suppressed and undeveloped by virtue of the fact that it was developmentally flat-lined by the ego-self and false-personalities associated with the physical consciousness of the body-vessel.   In the same way that you don't eat the earth which the plant has grown in, neither can the soul-self harvest the false-personalities which are of the earth, when your physical self dies.  And what is harvested from any given life, is what the seed-essence accomplished while in the body-vessel -- that which is supported by higher soul-reality is portrayed as the sheep on the Right Hand, while that which remains carnal and of this world is portrayed as the goats of the Left Hand.   Since the vast majority of people are cultural and their thinking is earth-bound, the seed-essence never really developed as portrayed by Gurdjieff and others.   And this is the plight of the un-manifest images in Gospel of Thomas saying 84 (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image).   
Since most people are totally ruled over by the earth-consciousness of the body, it can rightly be stated that they have never lived before -- and yet, their undeveloped essence-self which is an embryonic image of their higher soul-self is eternal -- and it is this undeveloped essence-self that survives physical death -- which has always existed.   Thus, quoting from http://ebionite.com/reincarnation.htm :  At Genesis 2:7, the Wycliffe Commentary writes: “Man's body was fashioned from the dust of the ground, while his spirit came from the very ‘breath’ of God. He is literally a creature of two worlds; both earth and heaven can claim him”.  More importantly, though, is for us to clarify our understanding of when the soul came into existence.   Thus, the Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown Commentary notes the belief of both the Jews and early Church: “The... views of Origen and other Fathers, and the... Talmudists, that all souls had been created ‘in the beginning,’ and were lodged by God in a certain place, whence each one was taken out to inhabit the respective bodies of individuals”.   In this respect, it can easily be demonstrated the first followers of Yeshua firmly believed that the soul pre-existed the body, and that our present physical forms are mere vessels that we inhabit during our sojourn in this life.   And further: What was the thinking and mindset of the Jews in the time of Yeshua/Jesus?   In his Antiquity of the Jews, the Jewish historian Josephus, who had lived among the Essenes, was a contemporary of the man Jesus, and became an Ebionite, 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...”   
People don't remember the previous lives that their soul-self has lived, because their consciousness is of the earth -- comprised of the multitude of false personalities that make up the consciousness of their physical self -- and as such, they have not only never lived before, but in their present temporal form, they have no real continuance beyond the grave.   Moreover -- and this is really important to comprehend -- that part of us that is of the earth, inherits the karma of its previous actions in the previous lives that the soul-self has lived as.   So, when the soul-self generates a soul-image at conception -- and the consciousness of the body and/or lower nature begins to form out of the elements of the earth -- the karma belongs more to the earth-consciousness, than to the soul-image that is more or less a captive of the body-vessel.   Which is why the Essenes portrayed this life as the soul being "...united to their bodies as to prisons" -- and because the consciousness of the body is controlled by the lower nature, the illusions of Plato's Cave is the result of the inability of the physical self to perceive beyond an earth-vibrational level of being.  Quoting from Science - Religion - The Etheric Field/MindQuoting physicist Walter Thirring in his book, Urbausteine der Materie where he wrote about matter that modern physics “...has put our thinking about the essence of matter in a different context.   It has taken our gaze from the visible - the particles - to the underlying entity, the field.   The presence of matter is merely a disturbance of the perfect state of the field at that place; something accidental, one could almost say, a ‘blemish’.   Accordingly, there are no simple laws describing the forces between elementary particles… Order and symmetry must be sought in the underlying field.”   One of the primary realities that science has to come to terms with in order to advance beyond their present level, is the fact that physical matter is the result of the forces in the Etheric Field coming together, causing what Walter Thirring above describes as a "blemish" that we observe with our organic physical senses.   And what this is, is Darwinism in reverse -- i.e., modern science has proven that the Field which is unseen and surrounds all matter, is the Source which impresses the aspect of mind and consciousness which is represented in the form of matter that we observe.   The problem is that to the organic mind of both the faith-based believer, as well as the Atheist, what modern science has proven is simply beyond their ability to even contemplate.   What man calls knowledge, is the wisdom and understanding gained through his study of what Walter Thirring called the "blemish" -- i.e., the illusion of what we perceive as physical matter.    Yet, without understanding the underlying forces in the Field that formed the blemish that organic man observes as concrete physical matter, it can be stated that what we observe in the physical world is so incomplete, that it would be virtually impossible to truly understand what we think and imagine we see.    Reality, states the physicist, can only be found in the (Etheric) Field -- and it is the Field that both surrounds all physical forms that we observe with our body-senses, and it is the unseen Field that is the source of what we perceive with our physical senses which we call matter.   Which again, is reverse Darwinism -- in that, Darwinism attempted to demonstrate that this physical world came into being apart from any unseen supernatural forces -- and modern science has now proven that this world is the direct result of unseen forces that would be defined as supernatural, or beyond what is seen with the physical senses.     
What is portrayed in the above is a complex paradoxical equation that few people whose thinking and mindset is ruled over by what we portray as earth-bound Cave (Plato's Cave) Logic possess the depth and capacity to comprehend.   How is it that while your soul has existed from the beginning -- and yet, man can't remember these previous lives?   And it can rightly be stated that he has never lived before?   How is it that while our soul is eternal, the personality of man does not survive physical death?   He does not go to Glory, as the Christians believe?   And neither can his conglomeration of false-personalities that are very much of the earth and ruled over by his inherent animal nature, reincarnate into some future life as many Easterners and New Age believe?   The Gospel does not say that if you walk the broad-way of (self) destruction (see In The House - Taught In Parables), that you will be reborn in some future life.   Neither does it say that if you walk the broad-way of (self) destruction, you will go to Glory.   In fact, it is easily demonstrated that the core Christians beliefs in salvation is a dogmatic lie (see TheLie.org ).   What it does say is that you must lose the self that you are in this world, in order to gain your true self.   And it does say that all events have a pre-existing cause that you have yourself brought about.   And to bring all these biblically portrayed realities together in an understanding mindset, requires an effort to develop the mind -- which must be nourished by the higher impressions of your soul-self -- as you create within yourself the necessary environment of mental growth and development.    With the problem for most people being that the Condition of the body and physical consciousness will not permit the development of the seed-essence self -- which renders them completely incapable of higher comprehension and understanding.   

In the Gospel accounts when Jesus healed, he did so by restoring the person to a condition of  "wholeness".   A holistic healer knows that negative experiences and beliefs create blockages in the body-vessel which inhibit the flow of vital life-force -- and the fact that this bio-energy must go someplace, it is lost into nature through the carnal appetites and expressions of the physical selfWhat man portrays as carnal sin, is the result of the loss of the inheritance (vital life-force) by the prodigal son who is living a "riotous" lifestyle -- primarily, because his immaturity inhibits his using this bio-energy to empower his higher areas and spheres of mind and being.   Thus, because he can't utilize the bio-energy, it is squandered away on "things of no meaning" and higher significance.  Proper exercise, and holistic healing such as Reiki where blockages of energy are released from the body through deep manipulation, should be an integral part of the process of mental development.   As is such things as yoga which  manipulates  and channels the bio-energy of the body -- and many other holistic forms of healing.    

It is easily proven that the original disciples and followers of Jesus were all vegetarian (see TheConsecratedLife.com ). That the mind and thinking of a flesh-eater is incapable of comprehending the higher impressions necessary to understand man's soul and spiritual reality, was proven by the account of Charles Fillmore (see Fillmore).   The case of Charles Fillmore is important, because as a pillar in the New Thought movement, Fillmore totally rejected the idea that what you eat can affect your thinking and ability to comprehend man's higher spiritual reality.    On a purely physical level, of course, when you eat dead flesh you not only impact the colon and clog up the body with animal fat and cholesterol, but you also flood the blood stream with toxic death and the fear-impressions of the slaughtered animal.   But since the colon is the organ that manifests the Foundation sphere of the Tree of Life, an impacted colon that is filled with hardened and putrefied dead animal flesh, simply cannot function at the heightened level necessary to access past-life memories.   And this, in conjunction with the blockages of vital life-force throughout the rest of the body -- along with the loss of this necessary bio-energy into nature through carnal appetites and expressions -- does not permit the seed-essence and/or higher mind to develop -- causing the person to remain earth-bound in their thinking.   And since the cultural false-personalities of the person has never lived before, such a person is generally incapable of past-life recall.

Did Jesus Have A Wife?

I wrote the following letter to Prof. Mark Goodacre on the subject of the claim that Jesus had a wife:



Shalom Prof. Goodacre:

With respect to your positions on Prof. Karen King in the NY Post article Jesus' Wife Papyrus Has A Typo, if you do as the Gospel account of Jesus states and properly apply the Key Of Knowledge in your interpretation and understanding of the scriptures, then of course Jesus would have a wife.  Yet, the historical man Jesus did not have a wife in the physical.  The problem is that the scriptures are not historical accounts -- and as presented in the article on the proper application of  the Key Of Knowledge, they possess a meaning that is not at all understood today.   

In the pre-Nicene Church (325AD) there existed a body of mature Christians who could easily explain all spiritual concepts presented in the Gospel accounts.   These early Christians never relied upon (blind) faith, because they possessed sure Spiritual Knowledge.  This enlightened core of Spiritual Christians understood that God is the most Rational and Intelligent Force in all of Creation -- that there is a reason, a causal factor, and even a higher purpose for all events that transpire in this world -- and these Spiritually Mature Christians knew and comprehended all important reasons for every concept set forth in the Gospel teachings.   But this enlightened intellect of the core body of Spiritual Christians presented a serious threat to the political leaders, and they were hunted down as heretics and murdered. 
A wise man knows that history perpetually repeats itself -- and in the same way that it was said of Mao's Cultural Revolution that "Many intellectuals were sent to rural labour camps, and many of those who survived left China shortly after the revolution ended. Many survivors and observers suggest that almost anyone with skills over that of the average person was made the target of political 'struggle' in some way".   In much the same way the Nicene Church was taken over by Pagan Rome, and the whole body of Spiritually Mature Christians were hunted down as heretics in order to silence all opposition to Imperial Rule over the Church and its acceptable doctrines of belief (see Atheists Never Exposed To Original Gospel Teachings).   To the degree that neither the faith-based body of believers, or their non-believing critics, have any idea that one of the primary objectives of the Original Gospel Teachings is as a true System Of Education And Enlightenment.    To the degree that from the perspective of man's higher reality, his present systems of education do more to inhibit genuine knowledge and the development of man's intellect, than to nurture and foster man's ultimate intellectual development and spirituality maturity.  

Quoting the article An Inconvenient Truth"...the scriptures are exactly what the original authors intended them to be.   And if we then pose the question: What are the implications of this fact?   While you may have read and even studied countless opinions of scriptural interpretation and commentary -- and you may have even undergone the formal study of the scriptures yourself -- but unless you understand how to apply what Jesus portrayed as the Key of Knowledge -- and unless you properly apply the Key of Knowledge in accord with the original intent and objectives which the authors composed these sacred writings -- then your assumptions about the meaning of the scriptures will amount to just one more of the infinite opinions as to just what the scriptures mean."    

In this article I portray the faith-based believers as a type of mule -- a body of believers who are necessary to preserve allegorical scriptures that contain a body of essential truths which if they were able to read literally, they would burn the scriptures as the work of the devil.   But the authors of the scriptures who are obligated to both preserve and conceal this essential body of spiritual knowledge that is beyond the comprehension of the faith-based believers, compose the sacred writings so that those who possess the Key Of Knowledge will be able to retrieve this body of knowledge declared heresy by the pseudo-spiritual leaders of the Church, in order to make this body of spiritual knowledge available to the few who are able to use it.   

The Gospel Of Thomas declares: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty"  -- and thus, the only valid application of the scriptures is the knowledge of the Forces and Laws that apply to one's own Cosmology of Mind and Being -- and to apply them within in search of the Inner Kingdom (see The Inner Kingdom And The Key Of Knowledge).   Quoting from the foregoing link: 

Believers are told to enter in at the "narrow way" -- but since there is no door to the narrow way in the outer world, they remain unable to do as commanded -- i.e., "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it."(Matt 7:13-14 NKJ).   And when Jesus was asked directly when the Kingdom of God would come upon the earth as Jews and Christians believe, Jesus said it would never come upon the earth, because it is within us all: "Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, 'See here!' or 'See there!' For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you." (Luke 17:20-21 NKJ).   That modern Christians walk the broad-way of self-destruction, is because long ago the Church threw away the  Key of Knowledge in the manner of the carnal Jews -- and thus, what was said of the Jews then, is true of the Christians today: "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). ...in their failure to properly apply the Key of Knowledge, they made themselves blind guides who were leading the people in the wrong direction down what Jesus called the "broad-way of destruction", making themselves apostates to the Kingdom of God.   Thus, the reality of the crucial questions that modern Christians close their eyes to is this: (1) How did the Pharisees and Jewish authorities "...hide the key to knowledge from the people"?    (2) 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, (3) how did the religious leaders of the Jews "...prevent others from entering?"  


While the vast majority of Jews and Christians simply don't believe they possess the innate ability to enter within the Inner Kingdom -- and they don't believe that the Kingdom they look for to come in the outer world in what they portray as the End Times is within them, and therefore will never come upon the earth as Jesus taught -- but the answer is in the Gospel of Thomas: (22) 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."  What this portrays is the necessity to overcome one's own divided nature -- bringing the whole self into Oneness.   But since they don't at all Know Thyself, they have no idea that all that they think they know, is merely earth-bound poverty of mind and intellect -- i.e., "But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty..."
  
When you properly apply the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge, what is allegorically set before you is a pattern and portrayal of your own mind and being -- along with the Forces and Laws that you must prevail over to bring about the next stage of birth.   The beginning of the above Gospel of Thomas 22 begins with the statement: Jesus saw infants being suckled. He said to his disciples, "These infants being suckled are like those who enter the kingdom." They said to him, "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?"  In the same way to be born in the physical you must make the two one -- i.e., the male (sperm) and the female (ovum/egg) -- and the embryo must evolve and be born into the next womb of Mother-Earth -- the words of GofT 22 that follows, relates to making the male (linear) and the female (intuitive) "... one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female" -- but to accomplish this you must first 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"  as portrayed in the diagram and pattern of the Tree of Life.  

Prof. Goodacre replied back to me with respect to the above: Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.   Paul portrayed the written text of the scriptures as the "letter that killeth" (2 Cor 3:6) and "Jewish fables" (Titus 1:14 - see Using The Key Of Knowledge) -- which means that those who are portrayed as experts and authorities, are the most deceived.   Or, when they are confronted with the original teaching and objectives as presented in the above, is their choice to ignore the facts more of a commercial decision?  The quote attributed to Pope Leo X that "It has served us well, this myth of Christ"perhaps explains the reluctance to embracing the truth of what the Gospel actually states.  Many people have become exceedingly rich promoting the "letter that killeth ...Jewish fables"?  

In the words of Winston Churchill: 
“Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened.”  In the same way that the body of faith-based believers are not in search of answers to the many enigmas and inconsistencies in their dogma -- as can be seen in the foregoing response -- neither are the people they look to as alleged experts and authorities.  That the religious dogma promoted by the Church makes no rational sense, is because it has nothing in common with the original teachings of Jesus and TheWay.   The original Ebionite Nazirene disciples who walked with the historical man Jesus daily -- talked with him daily -- and were themselves Anointed One's who gained entrance to the Kingdom (see The Inner Kingdom And The Key Of Knowledge) -- were declared heretics by the later Church of Rome -- as were the Spiritually Mature Gentile Christians.   And in the same way that Mao Tse-tung eliminated the intellectuals in his Cultural Revolution, the post-Nicene Church hunted down and murdered all the Spiritually Mature Christians -- and corrupted the Bible to make it support the dogma of Pagan Rome (see http://BibleCorruption.com .   Which means that anyone -- either believer, Church authority or critic -- who is not interested in the important spiritual teachings that were removed from the Gospels and outlawed by Rome, is simply not interested in seeking Truth and the Kingdom.   Are these people Christian?  Misguided victims of Stockholm Syndrome?   Or, are they living off the collection plate of the duped naive believers who are kept in the dogmatic dark ignorance, and never exposed to the Light of Truth?

Freedom Of Opinion - Not Facts!

Recently I became aware of a reply to my article by Jim Loewen on the History News Network entitled George Zimmerman, Travon Martin, And Me, wherein Jim wrote about my article entitled Are Mormons Christian?   In the article I quote Mr. Loewen's insightful statement: "People have a right to their own opinions, but not to their own facts. Evidence must be located, not created, and opinions not backed by evidence cannot be given much weight" -- and in the article itself he writes: At some point, I should relate all this to the study of history as taught in our K-12 schools—on which I've spent much of the past twenty years—so let's do so now. One reason why many Americans are not critical readers and do not insist upon facts stems from their history textbooks. Bear in mind that five-sixths of all Americans never take a history course after leaving high school. High school history textbooks include no footnotes or other system of references.  Moreover, even when issues remain contested, such as when and how did people first get to the Americas, textbooks cite no evidence—in this case, from archaeology, human biology, or anthropology. They just go on blandly relating certainties, even on topics still ruled by uncertainty.

While Mr. Loewen makes this above statement in reference to the history of the Americas, this falsification of facts that Jim makes note of is minuscule in comparison to the text-book censorship and rewriting of history when it comes to the true facts of religious history.   The fact is, that the censorship and misrepresentation of what is presented to the student is so great, that I always assumed that school text-books used a secular version of a Jehovah's Witness propaganda pamphlet as their source -- which to a large degree requires a desire to be duped, and a total suspension of reason and intellect.  

In his article Mr. Loewen takes exception to my statement portraying "Religion As The True System Of Education", but this is evidently because he never read the link (see Religion As A System Of Education).  Which goes to the core of Jim Loewen's statement where pseudo-facts are manufactured, in order to support partisan opinion.   At the foregoing link I site the facts of history that one of the primary concerns of pre-Nicene Christianity was "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” -- which is of course the objective of true education.   But the crux of the problem is seen in the fact where the meaning of the word religion has become confused with philosophy -- and in conjunction with the censorship and suppression of the facts, most people live their whole life not understanding the difference.    Is it religion?  Or philosophy?  Or philosophy cloaked in the garb of Genuine Religion?   Which of course goes to the very core of Jim Loewen's statement that "People have a right to their own opinions, but not to their own facts".

While philosophy is based upon opinion, belief and the assumption of unproven ideas, religion is the lifestyle that one lives in order to prove one's philosophy.   And the fact that few people are even aware that the very purpose of religion is to not only prove the validity of one's beliefs, but to learn the indisputable Truth of all Truths, is due to both the promotion of opinion as facts, and the suppression of the Truth in support of sectarian and secular propaganda.   

Its too bad that Jim Loewen didn't take the time to read the article Ann Coulter - The Fine Print - If You Can Find A Better Deal, Take It!   If he had, he would have gotten an eye-full of the mass censorship and manufacture of pseudo-facts that has gone into the foundation of modern Christianity.   In fact, using the Bible, the article demonstrates that every dogmatic belief associated with modern Christianity is rejected and even condemned as apostasy by the New Testament authors.   Therefore, it is virtually impossible for the modern believer to actually practice and live their religion while holding firm to the dogma of the Church -- which dogma is built upon manufactured pseudo-facts intended to support man-made Church dogmatic philosophy -- dogma that was forced upon a religion by a series of ruthless emperors who murdered whoever disagreed with them, and destroyed all evidence which contradicted their decrees.  In the words of Prof. Elaine Pagles:  “It is the winners who write history - their way. No wonder, then, that the viewpoint of the successful majority has dominated all traditional accounts of the origin of Christianity… It suggests that these religious debates - questions of the nature of God, or of Christ - simultaneously bear social and political implications that are crucial to the development of Christianity as an institutional religion. In simplest terms, ideas which bear implications contrary to that development come to be labeled as heresy; ideas which implicitly support it become orthodox” (see Pagles, The Gnostic Gospels).

I did not write that religious-oriented philosophy which is little more than speculation and belief, is "...The True System Of Education"  -- and in confusing what is portrayed through the use of pseudo-facts as religion, with genuine religion, Jim Loewen has permitted himself to be duped by the very opinion-based propaganda that he writes about in his book, Lies My Teacher Told Me.   The religion that I was making reference to, is the system of mental and spiritual development that was outlawed and condemned as heresy by the institutionalized Church which does more to inhibit the seekers progress, than to support the original Gospel objectives.

In his article Jim Loewen writes: Elsewhere on his site, he states that he holds to "Religion As The True System Of Education"—again at odds with education based on fact -- and if Jim had read at the heading The Heightening And Expansion Of Mind, he would have encountered my example of faith-based philosophy vs Spiritual Religion where I write: ...the original teachings of Jesus was not the blind faith and belief in a prophet or god-man -- but rather, the means to transform all Christian disciples of TheWay into prophets and mystics as demonstrated in the words: "...From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.   But, we must then pose the question: Just what is a "...religion of the spirit"?    Like an astronaut who travels beyond the limits of the earth's atmosphere into outer space, a spiritual religion prepares the seeker/disciple to transcend the barrier of this physical world, and enter into what the biblical authors portrayed as the Kingdom of God which Jesus taught was within us.   But to accomplish this spiritual transcendence, you had to first prepare the physical body to make it an environment that would permit "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” to be brought about -- and this requires a great amount of effort and preparation.     And in the same way that charlatans peddle get-rich schemes which rob the people of their wealth and prosperity, wolves in sheep's attire peddled short-cut schemes -- and it was these counterfeit shepherds who seduced the naive into handing over their money and support so they could live lucratively off the collection plate.  The spiritual Christians who followed in TheWay and prepared themselves to transcend the natural physical limitations of the body, possessed the Divine Knowledge of the Kingdom which they had succeeded in entering.   And the Spiritual Christians were opposed by those who portrayed themselves as Orthodox -- who more often than not were charlatans who for the sake of mammon and the political power of this world, ardently opposed the Spiritual Christians because they represented a direct threat to their base of money and political power. 

How can I portray the position of Jim Loewen who took exception to my statement respecting Spiritual Religion being "...The True System Of Education"???  When Christopher Columbus returned from his journey to the New World, he witnessed to facts that could only be confirmed by those who endeavored to make the journey themselves.   As a Spiritual Explorer and Shepherd, all I can do is demonstrate that the vast majority of people dwell under the grave misconception that they know about the founding and objectives of Christianity, based upon pseudo-facts that were manufactured in order to support the man-made dogmatic doctrines of the 4th century Church of Rome.  And that by the power of the sword of Constantine, the True Spiritual Christians were hunted down and murdered as heretics, because they refused to accept the religion of the emperor.   Further, it is easily proven that the New Testament itself was corrupted to make it support the dogma of pagan Rome (see www.BibleCorruption.com ).   Yet, based upon manufactured pseudo-facts, the vast majority of people remain clueless as the true purpose and spiritual objectives of the Gospel teachings.  Which also means that modern Christian dogma is not representative of religion at all -- bur rather, secular philosophy imposed upon the Church by a series of Roman Emperors who dictated to the believers what was acceptable to believe.  

In this life I was in my younger years the product of the thinking which was derived from the very same text-books that Jim Loewen makes note of.   I believed that Jesus was God.   That the Church was the expression of the Gospel teachings.  And I had no reason to question what I believed.   In time, though, I found myself doing exactly what Jim Loewen suggests -- i.e., "...Evidence must be located, not created, and opinions not backed by evidence cannot be given much weight".   When I was exposed to the Near Death Experience accounts of the Being of Light (see http://BeingOfLight.com ), I asked myself the question: Why does a person have to physically die, to prove the validity of these accounts?   And thus, like Columbus, I set out to make the journey in search of that place which I have come to call The Realm Of Souls.   In preparation for the journey, I had to follow Jim's advice and recognize that "...opinions not backed by evidence cannot be given much weight".  And after successfully completing the journey many times over the course of years, I basically had to rid myself of virtually everything that I thought I knew based upon the pseudo-facts of our history books.   Resulting in the fact that, everything that I have learned is the result of either (1) tapping into the previous lifetimes my soul has lived as; (2) learned directly from my higher soul-self (see http://SoulSelf.org ); or, (3) learned directly from what the earliest disciples of Jesus portrayed as The True Prophet.   Ultimately, I proved the validity of Jim Loewen's words!  And the extent of my massive writings is for the sole purpose of clearing out the grave misconceptions based upon the pseudo-facts propagated in our text and reference books, and convey to the seeker of True Facts what they must do to make the Journey in TheWay -- and Prove the Truth for themselves.   In the same way that I proved Jim Loewen correct, I also proved the words of Thomas Paine correct when he stated: "Such is the irresistible nature of truth that all it asks, and all it wants, is the liberty of appearing".  

In defense of Jim Loewen, his subject-matter interests are not the same as mine -- and thus, he applied his formula for finding truth in a totally different direction than I did.   But the facts are that both of us applied the same formula which he writes is necessary to find the truth.   And while in this life Jim is a couple of years older than I am, let me go on record as stating that Jim has only touched the surface in his research, and if he begins to connect with his true self -- i.e., his higher soul-self (see http://SoulSelf.org ) -- he will learn more in an instant, than he has over the course of his entire life.  And while I can't prove this to Jim unless he is willing to make the Journey in TheWay -- what I am writing will eventually be confirmed when he passes from this life and is no longer subject to the limitations of the physical body.   And thus, in these very words the difference between religious philosophy and genuine Spiritual Religion is presented -- in that, while religious philosophy is speculation and (blind) belief pertaining to one's faith in the unknown, Genuine Spiritual Religion is the mindset and lifestyle necessary to prove the Truth.
