We will never learn the channelling method that was used because it is no longer needed. We have a whole and complete word of God preserved for us today in the Authorized Bible.

Sure. Whatever you say. Even though Paul recieved his information from visions and direct revelation you are finding it difficult to understand that this is a form of channeling. It is, thus it fits said criteria like a glove. Hope that clears up your confusion and have a great day.

Channeling is when the person intentionally enters a trance like state. Paul never did that.

Spiritualism. a temporary state in which a medium, with suspension of personal consciousness, is controlled by an intelligence from without and used as a means of communication, as from the dead.

Paul was never controlled. He saw visions, he was never possessed and controlled. Can you show me the verse where God took control of Paul's body and Paul lost personal consciousness?

There was no channeling. It does not fit the definition.

Well first you got to go back and tell me where the Indian, as it were, scriptures really share the same sort of revelations that the Hebrews received.

Vedic/Christian Parallels

The savior God, virgin born, dies and resurrected is a common mythology that pre-dates Christianity.

The Hindu are actually Monotheistic. The ultimate God is Brahman and all other Gods and entities are just aspects of the one God.

In Christianity it's the same with the Trinity, holy spirit, Jesus/God/ If not then it's more polytheistic than Hinduism.

But Judiasm has been found by archeology to have been polytheistic in it's early days. They worshipped a Goddess Ashira as well as Yaweh.

Judaism is not polytheistic, but it's clear at various times Jews turned away from God and worshiped others, even the bible says that.

Judaism is not polytheistic, but it's clear at various times Jews turned away from God and worshiped others, even the bible says that.

It originally was, like most of the mythologies of that time, according to archeology.

"William Dever, Professor Emeritus at the University of Arizona, has investigated the archeology of the ancient Near East for more than 30 years and authored almost as many books on the subject. In the following interview, Dever describes some of the most significant archeological finds related to the Hebrew Bible, including his own hot-button discovery that the Israelites' God was linked to a female goddess called Asherah."

One of the astonishing things is your discovery of Yahweh's connection to Asherah. Tell us about that.

"In 1968, I discovered an inscription in a cemetery west of Hebron, in the hill country, at the site of Khirbet el-Qí´m, a Hebrew inscription of the 8th century B.C.E. It gives the name of the deceased, and it says "blessed may he be by Yahweh"—that's good biblical Hebrew—but it says "by Yahweh and his Asherah."
Asherah is the name of the old Canaanite Mother Goddess, the consort of El, the principal deity of the Canaanite pantheon. So why is a Hebrew inscription mentioning Yahweh in connection with the Canaanite Mother Goddess? Well, in popular religion they were a pair."

"The Israelite prophets and reformers denounce the Mother Goddess and all the other gods and goddesses of Canaan. But I think Asherah was widely venerated in ancient Israel. If you look at Second Kings 23, which describes the reforms of King Josiah in the late 7th century, he talks about purging the Temple of all the cult paraphernalia of Asherah. So the so-called folk religion even penetrated the Temple in Jerusalem.
Is there other evidence linking Asherah to Yahweh?

In the 1970s, Israeli archeologists digging in Kuntillet Ajrud in the Sinai found a little desert fort of the same period, and lo and behold, we have "Yahweh and Asherah" all over the place in the Hebrew inscriptions."

It comes down to what channel you are on. Anything not scribed at the scene by a witness that is recorded, like the crucifixion that none of the gospel writers were witness to, is either second hand or channeled. And all prophecy is channeled, you just don't want to be channeling anything but God almighty because that is considered sorcery and you might get possessed. But you can't channel God today without getting laughed at or worse, even if you could contact God with Christian witnesses they would think it was a demon.

This doesn't really answer anything.
