Spirit allows the individual seeker to perceive the book in ways that a blind preacher or layperson would not see.
Everyone has a level of Spirit within them, but that does not mean there are stronger/lesser people.
Let me clarify. We are all born equal under the sun. That does not mean our strengths and weaknesses are the same. For instance, I am pretty
intuitive. This has been a gift since I was a kid. I do not believe all I'm told, but a weakness of mine is that I am sometimes gullible. Yes...
I try to use my heart and gut instinct rather than my logic sometimes and it doesn't always work that way. Sometmes cold hard logic is necessary to
deduce one's personality and actions behind it. If we always relied on sensationalism...well look where we are now. War on terror, war on drugs, war
on poverty, war on education. All these wars. But have any of them made progress in coming to an end? Whenever you start a 'war' on anything, there
will always be those left behind. There will always be a brother or a sister who is pissed off because you hurt their family. You can never end these
conflcts as long as they're a war.
The bible has many many truths in it. I do not follow it because of how corrupted parts of it has become. To find your own truth in it takes much
effort and I frankly don't have the time or energy to go through every passage and find tid bits of information. Maybe some day, but the time is not
Yeshua ben Joseph's message is still alive and well in the New Testament. If it wasn't, there wouldn't be such a strong following. However, that
does not mean I believe the New and Old Testaments should be linked together...They are both stories and parables, not to be taken seriously together.
The first book is of a God of Hate, the second mostly of a non-juding God of Love. Does that make any sense?
So Jehovah (God of Israel) decides to change his mind a few thousand into his chosen people's lifetime and all of a sudden take them into
account...Now with the coming of Christ they are all of a sudden changed...but No. Jews in general do not even accept Yeshua's message. I find that
odd. A religion that shares half of its holy book does not even (for the most part of course, there are some Jewish people who believe he was a great
prophet) recognize his word?
I believe Yeshua to be a prophet, nothing more nothing less. I do not think he is the Son of God any more than we are Sons and Daughters of God.
He even said so himself there will be others greater than myself, able to perform more 'majick' if you will. He never said to worship me like a God,
only the Father!
That is in the bible, not to worship me as a GOD! I do not believe in only the Father either. God is such an intangible concept to think that it is
only a "He"...Well boggles the mind.
How are there females in existence if there isn't a feminine archetype?
Doesn't make sense to me.
I have read some of the Dead Sea Scrolls, Book of Enoch, and the like. There is much more truth (although carefully coded to protect the message) in
these books because it had been hidden from the Romans and Pharisees for such a long time.
The Gnostic texts were written by hermits who had little to no contact with the outside world. Their message is much purer and truthful than those in
the city of Jerusalem (In my opinion of course).
God is in everything. To believe otherwise would not be my own path.
Study quantum physics/mechanics, study ancient texts including that of the indigenous tribes (mostly oral history), read the vedas, tao te ching,
whatever you can get a hold of.
There is truth in many of these books. Not all, but portions. And then ask yourself what rings true for you.
Meditate and you will find all the answers you need. Everything lies within, even this world.
We project our reality outwards, and the inner world can be much more real than the outter at times.
