That said Jesus is the Way for 6 billion people?
We are all different so Jesus is 6 billion + ways, so many ways to one god.
You say there are 6 Billion ways to God… but Jesus said there is only One True Teacher and there is only one Narrow path…which few find according
Matthew 23: 8-11
But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi’; for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are all brethren. Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One
is your Father, He who is in heaven. And do not be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the Christ.
When Jesus said he is “the Way”, I believe he was referring to the Old Testament and the keeping of “the way” of the tree of life. Which is
all about bringing us back into union with God.
In fact, it has to be in that exact order that Jesus spoke it. Because seeking The way…leads you into the Truth…and the Truth brings you through
the narrow gate, and into The Life!…
Now before I continue any further…I should just point out that I personally don’t believe Jesus came to bring a religion and that the Bible has
been heavily corrupted and added too… but that it also contains deep spiritual truth for those who are genuinely seeking it out imo…
When Jesus said he was the way, I believe he meant that he was the only one speaking real spiritual truth at that time. In other words, all other
religions at the time were teaching falsehoods.
Jesus who came into the knowledge of the truth began speaking the truth… so he essentially became “the way” to help others to find it…because
he was the only one speaking the truth at that time period etc…
So if you were the only one speaking real spiritual truth at that time…then you would say it in the exact same way that Jesus said it…You would
say I am the way, and there is no other way except that which I am speaking/ and teaching etc…( And you would say it like that…because no one else
was teaching the truth at that time)…
But here’s the kicker…Religion has made it that “Jesus” is the “Only Way”, rather than the Truth that Jesus spoke being The way…
Now everyone who knows their Bible, knows that Jesus is “The Light of the World”, which really means he was in the Truth imo… But they sometimes
forget that Jesus called his disciples (those who are in “The Truth”) the light of the World as well…
Matthew 23: 8-11 You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead
they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see
your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
That light spoken of is the knowledge of ones union with God…That light, and that Truth is what is meant to shine!…It has nothing to do with
following a Religion are calling yourself a Christian or whatever else imo…
So what is The Way…”The way” is the way back to the Tree of life. Which is Union with God again. It’s the Son (which is your Soul) connecting
with the Father, which is Spirit…
It’s what Jesus prays for his disciples to become in John 17:20-22…to become one with the Father…in the same way that Jesus is one with the
John 17: 20-22
I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and
I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they
may be one just as We are one.
Coming into union with God, is the Way and is taught by the One True Teacher…which is the Father God…Any Son/Soul who Seeks the truth will find
it…It’s what Jesus meant when he said Ask, seek, knock and the door will be opened to you etc…If the Truth was all written down perfectly into
one complete book, then there would be no need to seek the truth…which is what Jesus asks people to do…
Everything else is false Religion…which Jesus warns against in Matthew 23:13 and Matthew 23:15
"Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the door of the kingdom of heaven in people's faces. You yourselves do not
enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to.
“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when you have succeeded,
you make them twice as much a child of hell as you are.”
The Kingdom of heaven which Jesus mentions in Matthew 23:13 is talking about that Spiritual kingdom within people and there divine connection to
Now According to Jesus in those above verses, other Religions at that time were not teaching that real truth…and were just looking to convert people
to “a religion”…which Jesus likens to people becoming like children of Hell, which is the direct opposite of what you’re meant to
become...i.e. a child of God…which is to know your direct spiritual connection to the Father within you…
It’s all about people coming Home eventually… even those who don’t remember…which are really just the “Poor in Spirit”. They are poor in
Spirit because that don’t know their divine connection to God yet…but the Kingdom of God is still theirs, even though they don’t remember or
“Blessed are the poor in Spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of God” (Matthew 5:3)
