I was a Christian for most of my life. I now consider myself a spiritual truth-seeker or I like the term; spiritual scientist. As a Christian it was
my experience that it was not wise to question everything as that would make you an "independent thinker!"
A few years ago I left religion and no longer called myself Christian. Do I believe in Christ and believe that he existed? Yes, but no longer for the
reasons I was taught or raised to believe.
Wouldn't it be interesting if the Bible was actually written as a conspiracy to mislead the religious? There seems to be countless confusion
regarding many aspects of the Bible and the fact that so many parts were even left out.
Here's where you confused me. You were a Christian then left Christianity or (religion) but now call yourself a "spiritual scientist". So there is
where I'm confused. You left one religion because you felt it was bondage or controlling and went into another religion?? Do you understand that
religion or 'christianity' is not a prerequisite to believing the Word of God/Son nor to worshipping Him? In His own words.....:
But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship
him.on of God?
He said the hour cometh and now is
I think that bears repeating.
But it is a fact, that when you/I tell someone what we believe, ie; in The Son of God/The written word of the 'HOLY' bible, that we are
automatically stamped with a label called 'christian'. Who cares? Call me what you wish is what I say. My God knows my heart, he knows I worship Him
IN my heart and He knows that no matter what man says out here that nothing is going to take me out of Him or His Word. It's the last stance of the
enemy and his followers to do everything they can to persuade a believer/follower/reader away from the Truth by coming up with untruths to discredit
the Bible. Here's a good verse for assistance:
2 Peter 1:21
For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
There is a difference in the will of man and will of God. God willed that His Son be manifested/born of a virgin, God chose that virgin and chose the
lineage. God chose what Yahshua spoke and was present every step of the way during the witness from the followers/disciples to the account of the
testimony of Yahshua. God chose John to be the one to reveal His Son in the most spiritual sense and to reveal the truth to 'us' those that believe
the testimony of Yahshua. I believe God is ALMIGHTY and there was absolutely no way that He would allow latter men who translated the initial
testimonies to totally dupe us with false knowledge. Sure there are mistakes, that's because man isn't perfect, but the Spirit, or Holy Comforter
given to us, who choose to seek Him, will bear witness to to the true seeds:
37He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man
38The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom
; but the tares are the children of the wicked one
39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels
If you read the entire chapter Matt 13, it may make sense to you that there are good seeds and bad seeds, some take root, some fall by the wayside
etc...but the seeds that are sown by the good seed or by the children of the Kingdom, TAKE ROOT. God word never passes away, which means it never
withers or dies, but is fruitful and plants firmly within.
So if you're attending any church and the preacher is preaching his own words and you're wondering why after 20 years or so you still feel empty,
then read chapter 13 AGAIN. The seeds were sown right into the word of God by the Son of God and His disciples and Apostles. But what happens is that
emptiness has to be filled right? So it is my observation that people completely forsake the bible, because of religion and find another source out
there in the world to fill that empty place, wrong answer.
Yahshua is the TRUTH, WAY and LIFE. Only by Him can we ever even get a peek at God the Father. There is no religion, person, place or thing out in
this world that will bring you unto the Father, not even 10000000 degrees and the highest medals of honor, not a grand master 666 degree mason, not
the pope, not anything can get you to the Father except the Son, which is the WORD. Yahshua is smart, He can get you through all the mistakes man has
made in interpreting and translating His word, He stands at the door and even knocks for crying out loud all you have to do is open the door to Him
and HE HIMSELF WILL SUP WITH YOU.
You might sense some anger in my post, but it is passion, begging, beseeching, love, care, and it isn't ME who is speaking/typing/knocking at your
door- it is Him through me, Greater is He who is in me than he who is in this (world=me) I am nothing without Him, absolutely nothing and will go back
to nothing without Him. Is that what you want? Gain the whole world to lose your very own soul? It isn't fear tactics like what man uses, it's
reality tactics and our eternity is at stake.
So my advice to you, is to get you a good bible and sit down and begin reading, you make the choice and He does the rest, isn't He fantastic!! Forget
all about the Horrible things people are going to continue to say about Him, and seek Him, no matter what they say. In the end, in that great day, who
is it going to be standing before Him?????? YOU and YOU only.
(I'm quite sure there are numerous mistakes and spelling errors, I just speedily went with the flow without stopping and thinking, letting Him speak
through me) so please foegive my grammer errors and just get past all that
May you hear His voice and not harden your heart.
